The Reluctant R&D Agent

EVE Online has been having some database troubles of late, which has caused some off errors including, I hope, this one.

There is an R&D agent that I have been using for ages.  I went out to visit her the other day to collect datacores and found that she would no longer talk to me.

Now, you might ask if I had done something to mess up my standings with said agent, which is why I took this screen shot.

You can see that Evah Pomar is flagged as not available, but a higher quality agent from the same corporation is available.  Generally speaking, if my standing is high enough to talk to a level 3 quality 19 agent, then I should also be able to access another level 3 agent with a quality of -18.

Furthermore, she shows as available when I look at the Viziam Corporation agent listing.

So I was stuck.  My only option when speaking to her was to cancel my research.  But Evah appeared to be still accumulating research points for me, not to mention all the points I had banked away with her, so cancelling seemed like a bad idea.

What to do?  I let her be and I’ll check in on her next time I’m in the area and hope that CCP has fixed the issue.
