I tried searching the forum and didn’t come up with any results but sorry if this has been discussed already.

One of the builds in the current event needs a medical scanner, I have 25 of then but they don’t show up on the build. I couldn’t see any other items that look similar but am I missing something obvious?

Tried playing the ship battle that the item drops from, A logical response Ep 1. One Medical Scanner dropped, looked in my item inventory and it has this?

Apparently someone’s making knockoff medical scanners.

Heh, I’m going to try and trade my 25 knock off scanners for a science experiment at Crazy Moxie’s.

Ran into same issue. Was playing “a popular item” ship battle so I can get other items that can be used and found this weirdness.

So this issue resurfaced in recent event and I once again opened a ticket with support. This was the response.. SIGH

Thanks for contacting Disruptor Beam.

First off, let me apologize for the delay in getting back to you. We are dealing with a lot of tickets at this time to support everyone.

So sorry that you encountered trouble in the game.

Many items share the same name and image however the border color and star rating distinguishes the different rarity.

There are two clones of Medical Scanner. They have the same image and name. The only distinguishing detail is that one comes from A Logical Response and the other A Popular Item.

I have shared the link for more information: http://startrektimelineswiki.com/wiki/Medical_Scanner

I replied to the ticket to indicate that just because it’s in the Wiki, doesn’t mean it’s not a bug. I also asked the support person to have a closer look at the screenshots I provided and acknowledge that these clones are the same in rarity. Sigh. Hope this gets resolved soon, or for starters, gets recognized as an issue.

It does seem weird that a game that has building items as such a big part of the gameplay would do this more than once.
I wonder what the explanation is? Not important enough at the moment? Some techy reason that would be hellish to fix? Someone at DB is bad at drawing medical scanners and phasers?

It would kinda make me laugh if support replied that someone is making knock off scanners but they are going to catch them soon©

I added to the wiki article so that it’s clear this is a bug
