This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Civilian Sector
  2. Engi Controlled Sector
  3. Engi Homeworlds
  4. Pirate Controlled Sector
    near a Red Giant.

This beacon has been placed too close to a super-giant class M star! The ship will gradually overheat until you get out of here... or die. A pirate, apparently oblivious to the danger of the sun, moves in to engage.


This event is called "PIRATE_SUN" in the datafiles.
