This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Engi Controlled Sector
  2. Engi Homeworlds
  3. Mantis Controlled Sector
  4. Mantis Homeworlds

The Long-Range Scanners will detect no ship presence.

You arrive just in time to see an unusually well-armed Engi ship destroying a small pirate craft. A teleporter signal is detected... intruder on deck!

  1. Continue...
    • A young Mantis in a charred uniform has teleported onto the deck. He begs for sanctuary from the Engi, and offers to serve in exchange for your protection. The Engi have already traced the teleporter signal and are offering a deal in exchange for the prisoner.
      1. Side with the fugitive and fight the Engi ship.
        • It was a trap! The Mantis sabotages your ship before teleporting away. We're sitting ducks!
          • Your ship takes 5 hull damage and 1 damage to a random system.
        • He expresses his thanks and prepares to help you fight his pursuer.
      2. Agree to offer up the Mantis in exchange for a bounty
        • The Engi captain is delighted, and quickly arranges for the transfer of the prisoner.
          • You receive a high amount of scrap.
        • Fury sparks in the eyes of the Mantis. He won't go easily, and causes serious damage before he can be captured.
          • Your ship takes 5 hull damage, a random room ignites, and you receive a high amount of scrap.
        • The pursuing ship responds with a completely unintelligible message. The young Mantis jerks to attention and assumes a battle stance. It was a trap!
