I have one live floater navigator and have not yet researched any alien, live or dead. If I research he navigator first, will I be able to research the hyperwave decoder, or, since this i the very first alien researched, will I get only some standard results (not the hyperwave decoder)? If that is the case, I should research some other alien first, so that I don't have to capture another navigator.

It should open both alien origins and the hyperwave decoder at the same time. If you are really unsure, save just a few days before the project is completed and see how it goes.

Thanks. Have not started research on the navigator yet, so I can save after my current research (heavy plasma) completes. Research for navigator should take only a couple of days.

A related comment about research in general. From http://www.ufopaedia...rch_time:_notes:

The listed times are averages: actual research times will take between 0.5 and 1.5 times as long (see Research time: notes for more details).

"Research time: notes" is a link back to the same article. I am guessing the writer of that section meant to link to http://www.ufopaedia...chnical_Details. You are listed as one of the contributors to the article. I would fix it myself but the script in these these articles doesn't use http links apparently, and, I don't understand how "wikilinks" works.

I think that link was broken because the original section was moved out to another page at a later stage, but the link wasn't adjusted. Fixed.
