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

  • A ship engineer has set up a small shop here.
  • You find yourself surrounded by a group of mysterious alien vessels. They hail you and apparently have some valuable technology for sale.
  • A transmission from the nearby planet indicates an outpost below which offers supplies to travelers. You send down an away party to check it out.
  • The space station here has a traveling merchant who shows you his wares.
  • There is only one other ship at this beacon, and it is showing heavy damage. You receive a message on your console: "Greetings traveler. We were crippled by a band of pirates and are now forced to sell our remaining valuable equipment to acquire the necessary supplies to get home."


This event is called "STORE" in the datafiles.
