How to Get Uncommon Plutonium in Star Trek Fleet Command


In the world of Star Trek Fleet Command, five factions fight for control over the galaxy. One such faction is the Augments, a race of genetically engineered humans created for war. Their faction zones contain a special resource known as Plutonium, so today we’re going to show you how to get Uncommon Plutonium in Star Trek Fleet Command.

Star Trek Fleet Command: Acquiring Uncommon Plutonium

In order to get Uncommon Plutonium, you’ll need to search for data fragments in the Augment faction zone, highlighted by a yellow border. The Augment faction zone is nestled between the other four factions, right in the middle of the map.

There are two ways into the Augment faction zone, and that’s through Rigel to Rainsford on the north side, or Quvolis to Yarda, on the south side. You’ll need to complete the missions Retrofit or Autopilot: Yarda to unlock each path, respectively.

Inside the Augment zone, you’ll find Corrupted and Encoded Data nodes throughout the systems. You’ll need to mine them just like you would any mining node, and we highly recommend using the Botany Bay ship if you have it, as it has a passive bonus to mining both types of Data nodes.

Once you’ve acquired a decent amount of Corrupted and Encoded Data, you can go to the Augment faction store and exchange the data for Augment Credits. You can then use these credits to buy Plutonium parts.

Common Plutonium is available for exchange once you hit level 20, and Uncommon Plutonium is available after you hit level 24. Rare Plutonium becomes available at level 30.

Be careful mining here. Since there is only a handful of data nodes, the chances of running into other players is very high. Be on high alert, and it may be a good idea to send multiple ships in case of an attack.
