  1. Hidden Crystal Worlds

You discover a number of civilian ships fleeing the area. Shots are fired and you find the assailant; a Mantis ship is attacking one of the smaller ships!

  1. Attack the Mantis.
    • You activate your impulse engines and fly between the Mantis and their prey, weapons charging. You appear to have their full attention.
  2. Ignore them.
    • You try to keep a low profile and quickly prepare to jump.
      • Nothing happens.

Contact the Crystal shipEdit

  • You contact the Crystalline ship to hear, "It seems you have brought war to our doorstep. I hope you're not too surprised that we don't welcome you with open arms. I should kill you myself..." They cut communications.
    • Nothing happens.
  • The Crystalline ship messages you, "You're the one that opened our sector to the outside, aren't you! Bastards, my home was just overrun by your 'Rebels'. Just leave us in peace!" They quickly jump away.
    • Nothing happens.
  • You contact the other ship, "Thank you for your assistance. It's glad to know that not all of you foreigners are so barbaric. Take this as a reward."
  • The Crystalline ship hails you, "It's a good thing you came when you did. We appreciate the assistance. Please take this for your help."
  • The Crystalline ship messages you, "Thank you. We were not prepared for the savagery with which you aliens battle. We will give you one of our weapons if you intend on assisting our kind in the future."
