Spoiler warning: The following contains spoilers for the game. Continue at your own risk if you do not mind ruining some fun of the game.
This is a Random Event. Occurs in:
  1. Rock Homeworlds
    at a non-distress beacon. The Long-Range Scanners will say Map icon triangle yellow "Possible Ship Detected".


You are immediately messaged by an imposing looking Rock war vessel, "You're the ship off to 'save the Federation,' aren't you? And you expect to survive with that hunk of junk?"

  1. "We're going to save them or die trying."
    • "The latter being more likely. Still... we can potentially help you and your precious fleet, but you'll need to prove yourself first. Meet us at these coordinates." They jump away.
  2. "We're strong enough to destroy you!"
    • "One ship is not the same as a fleet, but at least you've got some fire. Meet us at these coordinates if you want to prove to us that the Federation is worth saving." They jump away.
  3. Ignore them.
    • "Heh. Like I expected. If the Federation is as weak as you it deserves to fall." They jump away without another word.
      • Nothing happens.

Sun Quest MarkerEdit

This quest beacon occurs near a red giant.

You arrive at the coordinates given and find yourself dangerously close to an M-class star! The other ship messages you, "Let's see how long your puny ship can handle this heat! Prepare for a challenge!"

  • Fight the Rock Assault (Elite) ship.
    • (When the ship wants to escape) The Rock ship starts to power up their FTL drive. If we're going to earn their trust we must endure the heat for as long as they can!
    • (After the ship successfully escaped) As they jump away they relay coordinates to your navigation system. They must mean for you to follow them!
    • (After destroying enemy ship) Their ship breaks apart and you feel a twinge of guilt. Perhaps they could have helped the Federation if this had gone another way. You scrap what you can and prepare to jump out of the heat.
    • (After killing enemy crew) Their ship goes quiet and you feel a twinge of guilt. Perhaps they could have helped the Federation if this had gone another way. You scrap what you can and prepare to jump out of the heat.

Shipyard Quest MarkerEdit

You arrive at a massive Rockman shipyard and notice the ship that had just tried to kill you is docked and already being repaired. "Well fought! I must say I did not expect you to survive."

  • I am convinced of your strength and pledge to assist your cause. We'll immediately send an advanced cruiser to the Federation fleet and we will prepare our warships to move out.
    • You unlock the Rock Cruiser.
      • "Now that that's taken care of, let us patch up your hull. Maybe we can improve its armor plating while we're at it."
        • You receive the Rock Plating augmentation and your ship is repaired for 29 hull damage.

TriviaEdit

This event is called "ROCK_UNLOCK1" in the datafiles.
