This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Engi Controlled Sector
  2. Engi Homeworlds

This event was meant to occur at a distress beacon but doesn't because the <distressBeacon/> tag is missing in its definition.


You receive a distress call from a nearby Engi ship. "Assistance requested. Danger present. Imminent destruction."

  1. Respond to the call and move in to assist.
    • You approach to find a Mantis ship assaulting a small Engi space station. You prepare for a fight!
    • You receive another message from the ship, this time with a Mantis at the comm-log. "Foolish meatsacks," he yells. Sensors indicate the ship is moving in to attack and boarders teleport from the station.
  2. Keep your distance.
    • Nothing happens

Contact the EngiEdit

  • They thank you for the assistance and when you tell them of your mission, one of the Engi asks if he can assist your crew. You welcome him aboard.
  • The Engi station is stripped bare and there are signs of a fierce battle. The Mantis must have left the distress call active to lure other ships into a trap.
