This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Rock Controlled Sector
  2. Rock Homeworlds

You find a disabled rock transport floating near the beacon. You consider stripping it of useful parts but are uncertain why it's there in the first place.

  1. Strip the ship.
    • You salvage what you can from the ship. No one bothers you during the operation.
    • A Rock patrol ship jumps in while you are salvaging the ship. They message you, "Filthy pirates! Prepare to die!" You doubt explaining your mission will convince them of your need.
  2. Leave it alone.
    • 2x: The Rock people are not known for setting traps but you hasten to leave anyway.
      • Nothing happens.
    • Before you have a chance to leave, a Rock patrol ship arrives and you intercept their comm chatter, "...appears we've finally found them. Their killing spree ends now!" Before you can plead your innocence they move in to attack.
  3. (Slug Crew) Check for lifeforms and keep a lookout for ships while looting the wreck.
    • You salvage what you can from the ship. No lifeforms or ships are detected nearby.
    • You begin the salvage operation but before long your crew warns you of an approaching ship. You hasten to leave before they get within firing range.
