This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Zoltan Homeworlds
  2. Zoltan Controlled Sector

This event can occur as a quest beacon when encountering the Zoltan Trade Hub. There is a bug where you can encounter this event without entering the zoltan trade hub; it appears as a normal beacon with no quest marker.

You arrive at the primitive planet that you heard about at the cantina and are surprised to see a Zoltan ship facing off against a Rebel assault craft.

  1. Continue...
    • You tap into their frequency and hear the Rebel captain yelling, "We are liberating this planet in the name of the new Galactic government! These aliens will not be left in ignorance where they cannot be of use!"
      1. Interfere - make first contact with the primitive aliens.
        • The local people - furry, one-eyed tree lizard things - begin chanting when they see you. Suddenly the sky is lit by laser fire - the Zoltan opened fire on your ship! You dash back to the shuttle and join the fight.
          • Fight a Zoltan Ship.
            • (After destroying enemy ship) The Rebel contacts you. "Lovely, you've done our job for us! We'll let you live as thanks. However, I can't promise the fleet will show you the same courtesy." They jump off. You collect what you can from the remains of the Zoltan ship.
            • (After killing enemy crew) The Rebel contacts you. "Lovely, you've done our job for us! We'll let you live as thanks. However, I can't promise the fleet will show you the same courtesy." They jump off. You collect what you can from the remains of the Zoltan ship.
      2. Protect the aliens' way of life - Attack the Rebel ship.
        • These creatures should be left to develop at their own pace. You direct all weapons on the Rebel ship and begin the firing sequence.
          • Fight a Rebel Ship.
            • (After destroying enemy ship) The Zoltan hail once the smoke disperses. "Thank you. We were led to believe Federation ideals died along with the Federation itself. Let us aid you a little, for old times' sake." You accept their reward and scrap, then collect some remains from the Rebel ship.
