This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Zoltan Controlled Sector
  2. Zoltan Homeworlds
    at a distress beacon.


You have encountered a refugee ship drifting in space. It looks as if it was fleeing the Rebel advance and ran out of fuel. Its distress beacon is active, but you're not sure anyone is on board.

  1. Hail them.
    • The vessel is relieved to hear from you! They are running low on supplies. They suggest a trade.
      1. Trade with them.
      2. Politely decline.
        • Nothing happens.
    • As you hail the refugee ship, a Zoltan ship suddenly jumps into the system... it claims the refugees are criminals, and accuses you of escorting fugitives! Before you can respond, it cuts communications, and powers up its weapons!
      • Fight a Zoltan ship.
        • (After destroying enemy ship) The Zoltan ship breaks apart and you salvage what you can.
          • You receive a medium amount of scrap and resources.
            1. Contact the refugee ship.
              • The refugee ship thanks you for your assistance. As a gesture of good will (and seeing how effectively you dispatched the enemy ship), they offer up what supplies they can spare.
        • (After killing enemy crew) The Zoltan ship, now empty of lifeforms, provides easy salvage.
          • You receive a high amount of scrap and resources.
            1. Contact the refugee ship.
              • The refugee ship thanks you for your assistance. As a gesture of good will (and seeing how effectively you dispatched the enemy ship), they offer up what supplies they can spare.
  2. Ignore the refugees.
    • Nothing happens.
