It's almost end of second year and I've yet to find "any spaceman" in this run. I've done about 10 space missions and nothing but academy, robots and zombies. Is there any way to get it from files/discs/interrogations or whatever? I'm running out of things to research :-\

It's not so easy to get. Without spoiling too much, you probably need to start doing battles in the outer space; and not just with zombies or killer robots, but against humans.

If I've understood right, Any Spaceman requirement would fulfill with any of these:
Guild Spaceman · Guild Space Technician · Belter · Guild Ship Officer · Guild Navigator

So maybe you'll meet Guild Nav or Guild SO easier?

To my knowledge and experience, Belters, Ship Officers and Navigators only appear on the space freighter mission. There are a few Space Technicians on the Terminal Terror mission in the Shadowtech Haters chain, but that's quite a ways into the game.
Your best bet is the Guild Spacemen. They can show up on the orbital station missions, since it's a random pick between them, Academy and zombies.

I ended up grabbing the space tech on Terminal Terror. Always managed to grab one in space missions but in this current run the orbital missions range screwed me hard.

If this is a bug report, then more info is needed... :q
(and maybe in the proper thread)

I was honestly half certain it was a feature I'd just never noticed. I'll dig up the save and drop it in the thread later.

Not technically a bug, so I'll put it here.

I'd like to ask for removal of the feature that turns all slaves and workers to spawning items in base defense missions with random timers between 0 and 100 halfturns (Except Yeomen with 0 to 8 and gladiatrices with 0 to 30 halfturns), which then spawn "civilian" slaves.

It is impressive, it is logical, but it is a pain in the ass.
Specifically I am talking about cases when you have around 1000 slaves in a base and you are getting around 10 civvies spawned in every halfturn.

Alternatively, you could just raise the minimum timer (10 halfturns, perhaps?), so that there is a chance to complete a base defense mission before civilian turns get extremely long.

So, I would like to ask a couple of questions:

- How do I get Guildmaster's Secrets? I managed to research a Guildmaster but it apparently does not unlock Guildmaster's Secrets.
- How do I get Voodoo Initiation?

I have failed to capture a narlock noble in the two early "help the lokknars" missions that appeared, do they ever show up again or did I screw myself over and need to start over or save edit cheat? because it don't seem like you can get them from any other research and all I get are the ninja squads now.
