An advanced Rebel automated ship remains stationed near a small Rebel space-station. Sensors indicate it's a storage vessel for military goods.

  1. Attack the automated ship to get to the storage cache.
  2. Avoid provoking the ship.
    • Nothing happens.
  3. (Cloaking) Attempt to cloak and access the cache.
    • The ship patrols wide around the area, successfully approaching the station while avoiding detection.
    • Before you can get close enough to scan the station, the automated ship detects you and moves in to attack!

Fight an auto-Ship[edit | edit source]

(After destroying enemy ship) You salvage what you can from the broken ship.

Investigate the station[edit | edit source]

  • The station was either abandoned or stripped clean. It seems to have lain unused for quite some time. You find nothing useful.
    • Nothing happens.
  • The station was apparently designed to outfit Rebel ships with Drone Systems. You find a functioning Schematic.
  • The station is a storage site for military grade weapons. You find one that can be easily attached to the ship.
  • The station is a storage site for various resources. You salvage everything possible.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

This event is called "AUTO_DEFENSE_ITEM" in the datafiles.

This event is very similar to the nebula event: 'Rebel Automated Ship Near Small Space-station' but is not identical: Hacking and Improved Cloaking blue options are missing in this one.
