    at a distress beacon.


You arrive at the distress beacon near a small asteroid belt and find a ship with pirate markings partially crushed between two large rocks. It must have been illegally mining the belt without proper equipment.

  1. Try to dislodge the ship by shooting at the rocks
    • You take a few careful shots but you expose a mineral patch in the rock that reacts violently with your weapon. A shockwave forces you back as debris pelts against your hull. When you regain control you find there is not much left of the ship.
      • You receive a low amount of scrap and 2 damage to a random system.
    • You fire a few volleys into the rock and it starts to shudder and break apart. Without shields the pirate ship takes a beating but eventually pulls free. They thank you for your assistance.
  2. Destroy and loot the ship. They're just pirates.
    • You decide the pirate is not worth saving and fire a few volleys into their hull causing the ship to depressurize and break apart. You move in to loot the remains.
    • You decide the pirate is not worth saving and fire a few volleys into their hull. Before you can scrap the remains another pirate ship flashes on your radar. Perhaps they saw your deed, or perhaps they want to claim the spoils for themselves, but for whatever reason, they're charging weapons!
  3. (Beam Weapon) Carefully cut the ship out.
    • You use your beam to make a few precision cuts in the asteroid. The ship gives a quick burst of thrust and the rock crumbles away. They thank you and offer some of the resources they have collected.
  4. (Beam Drone) Have your drone cut the ship out.
    • You program the drone to work carefully around the trapped ship. In a short time it allows the ship to easily slip out of its cage. They thank you and offer some of the resources they have collected.

TriviaEdit

This event is called "DISTRESS_TRAPPED_MINER" in the datafiles.

*This suggests that it was originally supposed to be a miner trapped in the rock (which would make a lot of sense, as it would likely have been mining the asteroid belt, prior to it's being trapped), meaning that option 2 would have likely been absent.
