This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Pirate Controlled Sector
  2. Uncharted Nebula
    in a Nebula.

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

  • As you drift through the nebula an unmarked vessel descends from the clouds and into your wake. Their weapons come online.
  • A pirate ship pulls out of the ether and hails: "You know what I love about this part of the galaxy? The explorers! You always carry such fine loot." They lock weapons.
  • As you coast through the nebula a pirate ship matches your course and closes the distance. Better to pick your battleground, but beggars can't be choosers.
  • A hostile vessel descends from out of the nebula. Combat stations!
  • You try to read the ID of a ship ahead in the fog, but it's too thick to penetrate. You have your answer when the ship turns, weapons hot!
