I know this post is one month old and you've probably sorted it by now.Thanks for this great write-up but I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I"ve done this three times now, once on Synuefe and once on HD 63154. I had scanned the orb at HD and actually flown back to collect the rest of the items (focus crystals etc.) only to find out at the Tech broker that I didn't have the blueprint segment data! [mad] When I scan it says "Guardian Data terminal, no new traits found."And I have no Guardian blueprints in my data. I've followed the videos and guides exactly so I'm starting to think this is bugged for me for some reason. Any ideas CMDR's?
But this will happen if you are not aiming at the orb. Because it is floating, you need to elevate your turret to point at it. If you do not, you can still 'target' the orb, and will get that message when attempting to scan it.
So go to turret mode, elevate so your reticle is pointing at the orb and scan. Should fix it.
