This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Engi Controlled Sector
  2. Engi Homeworlds
    at a distress beacon. The Long-Range Scanners will say Map icon triangle yellow "Possible Ship Detected".


The distress signal originates at a small Engi ship under attack by a rebel fighter - but when they see Federation markings they turn to attack!

  • Fight a Rebel Ship.
    • (After destroying enemy ship) The rebels destroyed, you pick the bones of their ship and wait for the small Engi ship to catch up.
    • (After killing enemy crew) The rebels destroyed, you pick the bones of their ship and wait for the small Engi ship to catch up.

WinningEdit

The Engi vessel turns out to be very poorly equipped - barely a runabout, really. They're trying to outrun the rebels, and need all the help they can get.

  1. Give them 25 scrap.
    • The words they use are "Need = fulfilled", but you take it for gratitude. They take the next jump in their long journey home.
    • The Engies are grateful. They don't have any supplies or weapons to spare, but they do send over a self-teleporting med-bot disperser they hope they won't need.
    • The Engies are grateful. They don't have much by way of supplies but they do offer a drone schematic for your use.
  2. Give them 40 scrap, 2 missiles and 2 fuel.
    • They wouldn't get more than a few jumps with that load-out. You provide them with all the munitions and supplies they should need for the journey home. "Generosity magnitude unpredicted. Well-being syntax error [value too high]. Accept this token."
  3. Give them nothing.
    • Engies can't feel fear, so they bear you no ill will when you explain you're unwilling to help. They set off on their journey and you do the same.
      • Nothing happens.
