I can vouch for this. I once got a Quest from the Humans to deliver an 'Artifact' from one of their Planets to a Dryad Planet... I did it, & the Dryad Planet went Boom. As I was turning in the Quest, the Human Representative was swearing to me they had no idea that the 'Artifact' was a Nuclear Bomb. XD (I still don't believe that guy to this day, but the Dryad didn't lose relations with me, I got paid, tough buggers on the annoying people who were on that Planet, all's well with me that ends well for me.
Maybe ya should read your Messages & Quest Screens instead of rapid fire clicking through everything or just 'skimming' the Text.
