This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Hidden Crystal Worlds


A large Crystalline ship is floating in space here. They hail: "Aliens?! How curious. We request your aid. We have men buried on a nearby planet and we must dig them out."

  1. Send a crewmember to help.
    • You do as you're asked and send a crewmember down to the planet to assist. They discover a massive Crystal excavation operation and it quickly becomes clear this is a task that will take days, not hours.
      1. Leave your crew member behind.
        • You're committed to both saving the Federation and upholding the principles it worked to maintain. Your crewmember will remain and make good on the promise - you still have a galaxy to save. They give you some supplies for your trouble.
      2. Pull your guy out.
        • The Crystalline captain contacts you urgently: "What is the meaning of this?! Had you no wish to aid us you might simply have declined, but THIS... is an insult!" His turns his massive ship on yours and you prepare to fight for your life.
      3. Wait.
        • You've made a commitment, and that still means something. You wait one jump cycle and then inquire with the Crystalline captain about the status of the operation. "We respect your strength. The operation will take one more cycle."
          • The Rebel Fleet moves ahead 1 jump.
            1. Leave your crew member behind.
              • You're committed to both saving the Federation and upholding the principles it worked to maintain. Your crewmember will remain and make good on the promise - you still have a galaxy to save. They give you some supplies for your trouble.
            2. Pull your guy out.
              • The Crystalline captain contacts you urgently: "What is the meaning of this?! Had you no wish to aid us you might simply have declined, but THIS... is an insult!" His turns his massive ship on yours and you prepare to fight for your life.
            3. Wait.
              • Another cycle passes while the Rebel fleet draws ever nearer. You contact the captain again. "Alien Captain, your knowledge of our customs has most impressed us. Your crewmember is on their way back to you now, along with a token of our respect."
  2. Refuse.
    • "We understand. You rely on machines for so much. Yours is a soft and weak species - we would hardly even have noticed your presence. Fly well."
      • Nothing happens.
