This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. The Last Stand

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

  • Although this sector is still under Federation control, a small scout has slipped by the fleet. You move in to engage.
  • Long range scanners show this system is empty of any capital ships. Clearly it is not of strategic value. Wait... FTL signatures show a Rebel scout just jumped nearby!
  • Sensors indicate that the Rebels are setting up a forward Jump Beacon behind the nearby planet's moon. More importantly, a number of ships are passing by; prepare for a fight!
  • Federation ships are scarce in this region of space despite a number of civilian space stations. You see a small bomber squadron engaged with some Federation scouts and quickly move in to assist.
  • As soon as you arrive at the beacon, a Rebel scout turns to engage. Power up the weapons!
  • You scan the area, finding signatures for only a small trade vessel. However, as it approaches you see the silhouette of a Rebel scout! You run the scanners again and discover their registration is fake. You move in to attack.
