The scientists were gathered outside of the lab. Once again Earl managed to blow up one of his inventions and the lab was off-limits for a short period of time until further danger was averted. Nobody said anything to each other and just stood outside of the lab awkwardly. Eventually Emilia tried to talk some sense into Earl.
''Can't you be a bit more cautious with your inventions?'' she asked. Earl quickly shook his head.
''If we don't push engineering to its limits it would have been a huge waste of time. Sometimes my stuff explodes, but at least I'm getting things done.'' he said.
''What are you talking about?'' Emilia asked.
''I mean you can stare at plants all you want but that isn't going to rapidly change our lives will it?'' Earl said. Emilia felt insulted.
''Are you saying that all my reasearch about the wonders of nature is worthless?'' she yelled.''I'm not saying that. All I'm saying is that even though 60% of my stuff blows up I have made more ground-breaking discoveries than you.'' Earl said. Anna looked at Emilia and it looked like she was boiling with rage.
''Maybe because you keep blowing my research up all the time. Engineering is way less important than naturalism.'' Emilia said.
''That's were you're wrong. It's the other way around!'' Earl said. They both turned towards Anna and Phillipe. ''Isn't that right guys!?'' they both asked. Anna and Phillipe looked at each other. ''Well......'' they said. However they were unable to finish their sentence. Emilia had grabbed Anna by the arm and Earl dragged Phillipe through the corridor.
''We will show them. We will prove once and for all which of the two is better."

  • Your captain should be either Emilia or Earl
  • Emilia must bring Anna as crew, and Earl must bring Phillipe.
  • Your third crewmember can be anybody except for members of the other team.
  • Your final expedition must be a five-star location.
  • You must play on Adventure mode.
Score: Total renown + 2 times Renown from Science
  • BRONZE: 3800(1MP*)
  • SILVER: 7000(2MP*)
  • GOLD: 12000(3MP*)
  • PLATINUM: 18000(3MP+**)
* Number of medal points awarded when playing on Classic Difficulty. Easy and Normal give less, according to these rules.
Gold and Platinum medals may only be achieved without losing, though Silver and Bronze are still possible to get with just the Record sheet for that trip.
** The platinum medal is extraordinary and can only be achieved on Classic or Impossible difficulty without losing. It doesn't increase Medal Points further than a Gold medal, but we will track how many you have.
(The multiplier for renown times science makes both teams operate at a similar competitive rate.)

Don't forget to highlight your renown from science for the bonus 2 multiplier or you will lose that bonus!
