A Federation encrypted signal is being broadcast from a nearby planet.

  1. Send an away party to investigate.
    • You find a secret federation outpost. They are regrettably out of supplies but are eager to tell you of another secret base. They give you the coordinates.
      • A quest marker is added to your map (Hidden Federation Base).
    • You find a hidden federation outpost. They message you, "Quick, we just got word from a sister outpost that they've been discovered by the Rebels and are under attack! If you are still loyal to the Federation, go save them!"
    • You find a secret Federation outpost... but it appears the Rebels have found it before you; the place is empty and faint bloodstains can be seen in the living quarters. You find the encrypted signal emitter and shut it off before leaving.
      • Nothing happens.
    • You find a small cache of supplies that were surely left for any loyal Federation ships in trouble. You take all that you need, leaving some for others to find.
    • As you approach the signal you receive a message on a Rebel channel, "I knew we'd catch some Federation fish with this signal. Prepare to be boarded, scum!"
  2. It could be a trap, let's move on.
    • Nothing happens.

    • Your ship is repaired for 35 hull damage and you receive a medium amount of scrap and resources.
