This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. The Last Stand

The intro text for this event varies, and could be any of the following:

  • You arrive in the middle of a raging battle. Both sides are taking heavy losses. A small squadron flies past and a fighter breaks off, moving toward your position.
  • Two fleets fight nearby. You try to skirt around the edges of the battle and keep out of weapons range, but a Rebel scout spots you and moves in.
  • It's hard to tell who is winning the nearby battle. Before you have a chance to figure it out, a fighter moves in to attack.
  • The sheer scale of the destruction in the distance is almost breath-taking. Unfortunately, your position as an independent observer doesn't last for long!
  • The destruction in the distance is almost awe-inspiring. However you're dragged back to reality as Sensors indicate you are under attack.
  • You don't have any time to worry about the battle in the distance. The fight is coming to you really quickly!
    • Fight a Rebel ship.
      • (After destroying enemy ship) There's no time to salvage all of the wreck, the fleet is still nearby. Get ready to jump!
        • You receive a low amount of scrap.
      • (After killing enemy crew) There isn't time to salvage the enemy ship but your crew made off with a few nearby materials. Prepare to jump.
