This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Civilian Sector
  2. Pirate Controlled Sector
  3. Uncharted Nebula
    at a distress beacon.


You have encountered a refugee ship drifting in space. It looks as if it was fleeing the Rebel advance and ran out of fuel. Its distress beacon is active, but you're not sure anyone is on board, and its communications seem to be down.

  1. Prepare to board and investigate.
    • The ship is completely abandoned. There is no trace of the crew or any cargo. Mystified, you leave the ghost ship and continue on.
      • Nothing happens.
    • The ship is completely abandoned. It looks like it ran out of fuel... and the crew ran out of food not long after. Despite the grisly scene that remains, you are able to scavenge some supplies from the cargo hold.
    • It looks as if the ship ran out of fuel, and the crew ran out of food not long after. Despite the grisly scene that remains, you find one surviving crewman locked in the freezer, almost perfectly preserved and apparently overlooked by the starving crew.
    • As you investigate the ship, you are attacked by the now-cannibalistic crew! Driven mad by lack of food, they have turned to feeding on each other. As you fight your way off the ship, one of your crew falls to the crazed attackers, and you are forced to leave them behind or else lose your entire ship.
      • Lose a random crewmember.
        • Clone Bay: Your abandoned crewmember is waiting on the ship when you return, trying not to dwell on the fate of his previous incarnation.
    • As you approach the ship, the other ship's transporters suddenly power up, and your decks swarm with now-cannibalistic refugees! Driven mad by lack of food, they have turned to feeding on each other - and now your crew is next!
  2. Ignore the refugees.
    • Nothing happens.

TriviaEdit

This event is called "REFUGEE_GHOST" in the datafiles, and although it bears a striking resemblance to the event Drifting Refugee Ship in terms of intro text, the results are quite different.
