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

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

  • A Rebel ship hails you, "Hello citizen. We are responding to your distress call and can assist... Wait a second... You're that ship! Prepare to die!"
  • A Rebel ship jumps nearby, "I wasn't looking forward to patrolling this boring sector but here you are, the most wanted ship in the area, just asking for me to find you. It looks like it's my lucky day!" They power up their weapons.
  • Your distress beacon must be working because a ship just jumped nearby. You run a scan on it and activate a red alert. It's a Rebel fighter!
  • A Rebel ship jumps in and hails you, "I knew you would slip up some time. Surrender quietly!"
    • Fight a Rebel ship.
      • (After the ship successfully escaped) The ship jumps away without a word. You hope they didn't leave to get reinforcements.
        • Nothing happens.
      • (After destroying enemy ship) The ship explodes, leaving behind a collection of useful scrap material.
      • (After killing enemy crew) With the crew dead you are free to scrap the ship.
