Incorrect AnswerEdit

"That issss... incorrect." Further, I have taken advantage of your lack of acuity to beam aboard your ship and steal your stuff!

"That isss... correct. You sssurprise me. Human, is it? Yesss... we can be partners." The Slug beams aboard and joins your crew!

TriviaEdit

In the non-Advanced Edition version, there is a trick in the grammar of this event that gives away the correct answer, but that has been removed in the Advanced Edition update. This event rewards observant players.

This event is called "SLUG_DISTRESS_QUESTION" in the datafiles. Oddly, the event text for answering incorrectly puts one sentence in quotations, but not the other, even though the slug is clearly speaking. Assuming it is not a typo, perhaps the second sentence's notation is supposed to represent a telepathic statement.
