[Want to ask a Tumblr question? “Right this way, old man!” I’ll answer whatever I can.]
Anonymous from Tumblr asks:
What are the mode/2x shot correspondences between the level III completions and respective 2x shots on Stern Star Trek and are these correspondences the same for Kobayashi Maru ? Also do points accumulated for Level II and Level III completion count towards Kobayashi Maru shots ?
Let’s take a look at a couple of snapshots.
The first picture is of the colored lights as a player is playing Kobayashi Maru.
The second picture is of the modes and their colors. Space Jump is colored yellow but the light is too dim in this picture to see it.
Therefore, connecting colors of shots and colors of the modes we have:
Dark Blue = Prime Directive = Left Saucer
Red = Klingon Battle = Left Ramp
Light Blue = Destroy the Drill = Vengeance Shot
Purple = Nero = Left Orbit
Yellow = Space Jump = Right Orbit
Green = Save the Enterprise = Right Ramp
For example, regarding the 2X shot awards, completing “Save the Enterprise III” will double the value of right ramp shots.
The first time you make each shot during Kobayashi Maru, you get a small value.
However, the value of each shot you make the second time depends on the number of shots you have made during that mode.
I cannot confirm whether shots on Level 2 or 3 modes would contribute to a Level One Kobayashi Maru. From what I have been able to tell, the answer is no. UNLESS you are talking about the 2X shot effect. If you started Kobayashi Maru AFTER completing Save the Enterprise III, your right ramp will be doubled during Kobayashi like it’s supposed to be.
I’d imagine that the Level Two shots contribute to whatever awaits the player who completes all of the level two modes and likewise the level three shots would contribute to whatever awaits the player who completes all of the level three modes.
