"Uncharted Territory"-can't scan a ship
I was playing the campaign "Uncharted Territory" and ran into a technical problem on the mission "The Seventh Symbol". 

I'm supposed to scan the nav subsystem of a destroyer (SD Bathin, Ravana class).  Usually when one is supposed to do this, there is the phrase "not scanned" or "cargo:  unknown" in the target box (lower left corner of the screen.  However, there was no "not scanned" phrase there so I can't do that scan (even when within 150m of the subsystem) or complete the mission or finish it properly.

FYI I was using the new 3.7 release.  Here is a fs2open log I got from that corresponding debug build.

I think something broke somewhere at some time in some fashion with respect to subsystem scanning on capital ships. Or unbroke which broke the mission. I haven't put much work into actually narrowing down what happened, but I did do a workaround.

Put this in the data/missions folder and let me know if that works for you.

This is where I downloaded Uncharted Territory from.  Where exactly am I supposed to put the "mission5.fs2" file that was in the "unchartedterritoryfix" folder you provided?

I ask because there is no "missions" folder in the UT folder that I downloaded from freespacemods.net.  In fact when I downloaded the campaign initially, there were only three things in it:  mod, uct (a picture), and uct_1_1.vp

Even after I started playing the campaign, there was no "missions" folder to put your fix into.  There was a "data" folder, but all that had in it was a "cache" folder and 'event'/'multi' text files.

Just create data/missions manually and put the mission5.fs2 file in there.
