  5. Slug Controlled Nebula

    in a Nebula. Can also occur as a nebula filler event in any sector.

A heavily damaged Federation ship is hiding in the nebula at this beacon. Before you have time to make contact with them, they fade into the nebula.

  1. Attempt to follow and help them.
    • Your search is hopeless. Your sensors can't pick up anything in the nebula.
      • Nothing happens.
    • While searching fruitlessly through the nebula, you stumble upon the rebel ship which the Federation loyalists were likely hiding from. You prepare for a fight.
    • You get lucky and find them floating not too deep into the nebula. Thrilled to be found by friendlies, they come on board and abandon their wrecked ship.
  2. Keep your position, they can handle themselves.
    • Nothing happens.
  3. (Teleporter) Lock onto their life-signs with your teleporter.
    • You beam the Federation crew aboard. One gladly joins your crew, the rest wait to be dropped off at the next station.
  4. (Long-Ranged Scanners) Pump extra power into your sensors and try to track them.
    • Your local radar flickers, periodically showing signs of a large object in the clouds nearby. However it's enough to get coordinates and you find the ship... an empty hull, long since stripped of functioning components.
      • You receive a medium amount of scrap.
    • You follow the faint signatures and find them floating not too far away into the nebula. Thrilled to be found by friendlies, they come on board and abandon their wrecked ship.
