This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Hidden Crystal Worlds
    at a store beacon.

The intro text for this event varies, and could be any of the following:

  • You arrive in an area bustling with crystalline ships and stations. A merchant quickly messages you, "You're from the outside, no? This is a great opportunity for both of us! Do you have anything you wish to sell or trade?"
  • "Ah! Hello aliens", says a rotund crystalline being on the vid screen. "I hoped I would run into one of you. I am a collector of alien artifacts and hoped you would have some equipment to barter!"
  • You arrive at a trade depot and find a store that is willing to open communications with you. "I can't say I've traded with your kind before, but perhaps we could work out some sort of exchange."
  • You receive an incoming transmission, but it seems badly garbled. Eventually you realize it's advertising an equipment store. "Apologies," says the vendor, when you finally get him on the vid screen, "Long time since use universal translator necessary. Please, buy, buy!"


This event is called "STORE_CRYSTAL" in the datafiles.
