This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Civilian Sector
  2. Rebel Controlled Sector
  3. Rebel Stronghold
  4. Uncharted Nebula
    in a Nebula. Can also occur as a nebula filler event in any sector.

It appears that an automated Rebel scout was positioned within the nebula to warn of your passing.

  • Fight an Auto-ship.
    • (When the ship wants to escape) The ship starts to power up its FTL Drive. If it gets away, it will no doubt warn the fleet of your position!
    • (After the ship successfully escaped) The scout jumps away. It will certainly have informed the fleet of your position. You must get to the next sector as soon as possible!
    • (After destroying enemy ship) The ship breaks apart and you feel relief in the knowledge that you will hopefully still be one step ahead of the fleet.


This event is called "NEBULA_AUTO_WARNING" in the datafiles.
