You know knowledge is a good thing right? But you don't always know everything. You can't expect yourself to be a walking text on the way things are and how things work, and with that you can be in serious trouble out there in space. That's too much of a load on your back. Here's an easier alternative to that: Bring buddies with you. That's right. Don't know much about tombs? Bring your Avian drinking pal along and have him guide you. Need a professional opinion on chum? How's your Hylotl buddy? Is he busy this afternoon?
In this case, you're in a jungle and you'd like to have the second opinion of your old academy squeeze. She'll know what to say!
