  6. (Improved Hacking) Hack the station to prevent an alert. (Requires level 2 Hacking) [-1 Drone Part]
    • You successfully hack into the station and sever the connection to the automated ship, accessing the station completely undetected.

Fight an auto-ShipEdit

(After destroying enemy ship) You salvage what you can from the broken ship.

Investigate the stationEdit

  • The station was either abandoned or stripped clean. It seems to have lain unused for quite some time. You find nothing useful.
    • Nothing happens.
  • The station was apparently designed to outfit Rebel ships with Drone Systems. You find a functioning Schematic.
  • The station is a storage site for military grade weapons. You find one that can be easily attached to the ship.
  • The station is a storage site for various resources. You salvage everything possible.


This event is called "NEBULA_AUTO_DEFENSE_ITEM" in the datafiles.

This event is very similar to the nebula event: 'Rebel Automated Ship Near Storage Vessel' but is not identical: more blue options are present in this one.
