Question from TokenFembot

Asked: 4 years ago

Do you *need* to explore all the planets?

If I've edited my save to give me enough materials to buy any upgrade I want, and the planet doesn't have an assignment/mission connected to it, is there any reason to explore it?
Basically I'm just worried about everyone surviving the final mission. I'm already getting all the upgrades I can as soon as I can, but exploring/scanning/mining every single planet in the galaxy sounds... really tedious. Do I have to? :(

Aside from the planets with missions, exploring uncharted worlds is only to provide you with resources. If you've already got the achievement for exploring 100% of the worlds in a sector, and you don't need the resources anymore, there's no reason you have to explore any of them that don't have a mission.

No need. If you have around 300k on all resources and around 50k Eezo, you can get every research you find.

The only reason you want to explore planets that are irrelevant is that some planets have Anomalies, which gives side quests..
