This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Abandoned Sector


The intro text for this event varies, and could be any of the following:

  • You come across a single Lanius ship salvaging a small civilian craft. You cannot tell if they attacked the craft or just happened upon it.
  • There are remnants of a fierce battle here. Scattered among the hulks are small Lanius craft, slowly breaking apart the wrecks. One of the ships is close enough that you could probably attack it without immediately alerting the others.
  • When you arrive at the beacon you discover what must have been remnants of a large battle. However the vast majority of metal has been striped from the ships, only various plastic and other materials float in a ring around a planet. A lone Lanius ship moves between the wreckage looking for more salvage.
  • A small asteroid belt is near this jump beacon. It must be mineral-rich since a Lanius ship is docked on a large rock, slowly absorbing parts of it. You could probably get their attention pretty easily.
  • A Lanius ship is slowly salvaging what remains of a small research station. It's hard to say if it was abandoned or attacked by the Lanius.
    1. Attack the ship.
      • You move in and power up your weapons. Detecting the threat, they stop what they are doing and prepare for a fight.
    2. Leave them alone.
      • You ignore the ship and prepare to jump.
        • Nothing happens.
    3. (Lanius Crew) Request some scrap.
      • Your crew hails their ship, wondering if they have any extra salvage. Their crew seems happy to share.
        • You receive a medium amount of scrap.
      • Your crewmember hails them, asking if they have any extra scrap. They state that they are extremely low and cannot spare any.
        • Nothing happens.
      • They scoff at your crewmember's request and utter something that was translated as, "Get your own, lazy solder."
        1. Attack the ship.
          • You move in and power up your weapons. Detecting the threat, they stop what they were doing and prepare for a fight.
        2. Leave.
          • You ignore their derisive tone and prepare to jump.
            • Nothing happens.
