This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Pirate Controlled Sector


Not too far from the beacon, you detect a destroyed cargo ship with its cargo scattered nearby, intact.

  1. Bring it aboard.
    • They appear to be filled with military supplies! You take everything you can use and jettison the rest.
    • The cargo was primarily consumer goods and clothing, nothing particularly useful. You manage to collect some scrap.
      • You receive a low amount of scrap.
    • Once you bring the cargo onto your ship, a pirate bursts out of one of the crates saying, "Ugh... I was getting cramped in there. Oh, yeah! Prepare to die!" Immediately after this battle-cry your ship is filled with the sound of crates breaking open...
      • You are attacked by 2-4 human boarders.
    • You bring the cargo aboard. Before you have a chance to open them a pirate ship appears out of hiding and charges. At the same time, the crates fly open. Intruders aboard the ship!
      • You are attacked by 2-4 human boarders and fight a Pirate ship (default rewards).
  2. Leave it alone, this looks suspicious.
    • You leave the cargo alone and prepare to jump.
      • Nothing happens.
  3. (Advanced Sensors) Run an advanced scan on the boxes. (Requires level 2 Sensors)
  4. (Long-Ranged Scanners) Run an advanced scan on the boxes.

Scan the boxesEdit

  • The cargo appears to contain nothing of much interest. You salvage some scrap from the destroyed ship.
    • You receive 20-35 scrap.
  • Your Advanced Sensors are able to breach the protective barrier and scan the cargo. It appears to be filled with military supplies! You take everything you can use.
  • Your advanced sensors pick up faint life signatures inside the cargo. The life forms appear to be armed. This looks like a planned pirate ambush.
    1. Destroy the crates to prevent another ship from falling victim.
      • You fire on the crates, breaking them open and scattering the pirates into empty space. A pirate ship appears out of nowhere with a message, "You will pay for that!"
    2. Leave it alone and prepare to jump.
      • Nothing happens.

TriviaEdit

This event is called "FLOATING_CARGO" in the datafiles.
