  • I'm going to do what I do best: lecture her!
In my current game, I have a five planet federation. The other two living races are the Thoraxians (can't steal from), and Burulists (who I also can't seem to steal from, the recruit informant option is disabled by saying they're "at war", although its always said that). Every single race has Quantum Computers researched, so I can't research it. I can't seem to steal from Federation races either.

Quantum Power shows up in the list of things to research using the dispatch mission, but I can't research it because I don't have Quantum Computers.

Far as I can tell, it's simply impossible for me to get Quantum Computers now, which means I also can't get Quantum Power.

So... what gives? Is that intentional? It's kind of weird to me that there seems to be nothing I can do about this.

Save is here, if someone wants to look.

* Removed the mechanic where races that were at war would have your informant killed, and would prevent you from getting new informants.
