This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Abandoned Sector


You arrive at the beacon to discover a civilian ship fleeing from a lone Lanius craft. The civilian messages you, "Help! The metal monsters are coming to melt down our ship!" Strangely, no active weapon signatures are detected.

  1. Attack the Lanius ship.
    • The civilian ship hastily retreats while you intercept the path of the ship and lock on weapons. It turns and prepares for a fight.
  2. Stay out of it.
    • You ignore the ship's pleas and watch as it hastily escapes. Oddly, the Lanius ship makes no move to chase it. You wonder if they were ever a threat at all.
      • Nothing happens.
  3. Try to contact the Lanius ship.
    • You approach the ship without activating weapons and the civilian ship says, "Don't go any closer! Just kill them!" before hastily making their retreat.
      1. Ignore them and continue.
        • You ask what they want and the translator chirps their response, "Explore. Assess trade potential." It appears to be a merchant ship attempting to make connections with the other races. The civilian must have simply been too scared to ask. You check what they have to sell at the moment.
        • You ask what they are doing here but the translator clearly has problems with the request. It chirps with their response, "Expunge... Floral... Proposition..." You try to clarify their answer but to no avail. Both you and the Lanius captain end the transmission despondently.
          • Nothing happens.
        • You ask what they are doing here but the translator clearly has problems with the request. The Lanius seem enraged for an indiscernible reason. They cut transmission and power their weapons. Looks like you'll have to fight after all!
  4. (Lanius Crew) Try to contact the ship
    1. Your crewmember opens a channel with them. It seems they are scouting for a merchant's guild which is seeking to establish connections with other sentient races. You suggest they invest research time into developing better translators and ask to see if they are selling anything at the moment.

Fight a Lanius shipEdit

  • (After destroying enemy ship)
    • 3x: The ship explodes, leaving behind a collection of useful scrap material.
    • The ship explodes, revealing their cargo of unprocessed metal. You collect a significant amount of scrap.
  • (After killing enemy crew)
    • 3x: There are no more life-signs remaining on the ship. You strip it of useful materials.
    • 2x: There are no more life-signs remaining on the ship. You strip it of useful materials.
    • With the Lanius dispatched you are able to take the fuel out of storage. You also take all the scrap you can manage.
    • Now that the Lanius ship has been emptied of hostiles, you search it. Eventually you find a prisoner who offers to join your crew.
    • You find a drone schematic on their ship. With no crew to stop you, you can install it on your own.
