Weird, this academy provost: I used the stun baton about 50 times, but couldn`t get him stunned...
Are there enemies, that can`t be stunned with the baton? I`m not talking about robotic units.

@legionof1

You can also spawn a mansion with 0 chests. I got that 1 time in my last run out of 3 mansions total.

@Louis
The provost is quite resistant to electric damage.
You've to use different stuff to stun her. A strong gal with a stun-baton or slaver's cane. Maybe a cattle-prod might roll high enough.

I finally succeded by using a combination of damage and stun-damage. Then healed the unconscious provost.

But the best is: Now I can continue with research  :D
Got now VIP kidnapping.

When a ships mission is "secret base", does it mean a currently invisible base? Never seen any support ships for that base.

Secret base is the name given for the mission to build the faction bases. A bunch of ships of many sizes swarm the area near where the base will appear, land at least once each. Then some time late the base is spawned and can be found in the normal manner.

If you can catch a secret base under construction, it's an opportunity to get two of the same VIP: One from the cruiser during the base construction, and the other in the base itself.

So even if something has a high chance to spawn, its a high chance in a fixed low number of rolls per month.

Out of curiosity, what is the hard limit for number of missions per month?

With unlimited waypoints enabled, it's not limited in any meaningful way. There are more slots than possible missions as fas as I can tell.
Many of the early missions are time-limited and some missions are deactivated as research progresses. In addition, some of the triggered missions have long lead times, which further reduces the amount of available targets. You can always edit Piratez_Factions to make more missions appear.

Race missions are also the easiest way to get gals alongside some cheap stuff and a bikini trapping,as the only thing you need to do for that mission is to just reach it and just end the turn.

Is there any possibility to view the bootypaedia - entries of gadgets in the production facility?
Middle mousebutton doesn`t work here. And I don`t want to go through all bootypaedia areas in search for that one article.

Sadly no. You've to go to the geoscape and open the booty-pedia and search the entry in there.
Or press O during the inventory screen to open the bootypedia.

Ok.

I`m a little bit confused about the secret base missions of the enemy. It should generate a hideout, but that didn`t happen...  :o
I`ve waited until the following month.

Yes, that is normal, but shouldn`t there be any support ship landing?
