This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Rock Controlled Sector
  2. Rock Homeworlds
    in an Asteroid Field.

The intro text for this event varies, and could be any of the following:

  • Minute fissures in the shields spark and crackle as the ship jumps into the wake of a huge asteroid. More asteroids follow, as does a lost and aggressive Rock pirate ship.
  • You exit the jump surrounded by dirt and rocks. Before long a blast is deflected by your shield, but that was no asteroid... Incoming pirate!


This event is called "ROCK_PIRATE_ASTEROID" in the datafiles.
