Data Samples

Data Samples are loot drop items gained by scanning anomalies both in space and on ground missions or by killing enemies. They are a craft material utilized at Memory Alpha for equipment upgrades.

Data Samples are subdivided into three categories : Energy, Physical, and Technological.

Samples are further categorized into six colours (red, cyan, green, blue, orange, purple).

Although the number of sample colors (and the imagery on the icons themselves) would appear to have a direct correlation to player Rank (i.e. red=ensign, cyan=lieutenant, green=lt.commander, blue=commander, orange=captain, purple=admiral), rank itself does not grant access to each successive Crafting Tier. There are only three Crafting Tiers, rather than one for each successive rank, and each only unlocks once a player has crafted the appropriate number of items for each successive crafting contact at Memory Alpha.

Confusing? Yes, it certainly is...but hopefully it will become clearer as time goes on!
