  6. Slug Home Nebula
  7. Slug Home Nebula
    Can also occur at an exit beacon and as a filler event in any sector. The Long-Range Scanners will detect Map icon diamond yellow no ship presence.

You spot a small rebel ship nearby. It seems to have been re-fitted for transport rather than combat. It does not seem to want to engage you and your ship.

  1. Demand the surrender of their goods.
    • You prepare to secure their cargo by force.
      • Fight a Rebel Squat Transport. Enemy ship seems to immediately prepare for a jump.
        1. (After destroying enemy ship) You search the ship and discover that its cargo was new military-grade weaponry! It was somehow undamaged in the fight and can easily be mounted on the ship.
        2. (After destroying enemy ship) You search the remains of the ship, but only come across blueprints and debris from broken machinery. A shame, but you take what scrap you can salvage.
          • You receive a Low amount of Standard loot.
        3. (After destroying enemy ship) The ship was transporting weaponry. You find a piece still intact, despite the battle.
        4. (After destroying enemy ship) The ship was apparently transporting weaponry; however, nothing seems to have survived the battle.
        5. (After destroying enemy ship) Searching the remains, you find that the cargo was military-grade Drone Schematics! You bring them aboard to install in your ship.
        6. (After destroying enemy ship) The debris implies that the ship was carrying Drone Schematics, but unfortunately nothing remains. You do find functioning Drone Parts, however.
        7. (After destroying enemy ship) This ship's cargo was not salvageable. However, they seem to have been surveying the region; they possess detailed maps and data. You download what you can to the ship's map.
          • You receive a Medium amount of Scrap only loot and your map is revealed.
        8. (After destroying enemy ship) From the bits and pieces you find, you decide that this ship was gathering information. Nothing seems useful.
        9. (After destroying enemy ship) You detect faint life signatures from an intact piece of the hull. They were transporting prisoners, and the sole survivor offers to join your crew, as a first step on his path to get revenge.
          • You receive a Low amount of Standard loot. And a random crew member.
        10. (After destroying enemy ship) The ship appears to have been transporting prisoners. Unfortunately they were all killed in the battle. You salvage what you can.
          • You receive a Low amount of Standard loot.
        11. (After destroying enemy ship) The ship was carrying military supplies. You pick up anything that looks salvageable from the debris.
          • You receive a High amount of Standard loot.
        12. (After killing enemy crew) With the crew dead, you search the ship. You find military-grade weaponry and take what looks most useful.
        13. (After killing enemy crew) The ship refuses to fight, but you still detect life signatures. Apparently this was a prisoner transport. The single survivor offers to join your crew in exchange for their freedom.
          • You receive a High amount of Scrap only loot. And a random crew member.
        14. (After killing enemy crew) This ship was apparently carrying information about the surrounding beacons. You download what you can to the ship's map, and scrap the rest of the ship.
          • You receive a Medium amount of Scrap only loot and your map is revealed.
        15. (After killing enemy crew) Searching the remains you find that the cargo was military-grade Drone Schematics! You bring them aboard to install on your ship.
  1. Avoid the ship.
    • They stay outside your weapons range, and eventually jump away.

TriviaEdit

This event is called "REBEL_TRANSPORT" in the datafiles.

Despite the flavor text, this ship isn't generated any differently than any other Rebel ship.
