This is a Random Event. Occurs when you are out of Fuel with your distress beacon ON.


A ship responding to your distress moves in. Unfortunately it turns out to be an automated Rebel scout. It immediately reverses thrust after scanning your ship.

  • 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.
