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 you were expecting the Rebels, you never imagined their fleet could have grown so fast. Your scanners can hardly register them all before a fighter stationed nearby moves in to attack.
  • This system is flooded with Rebel warships. Luckily your ship's signature is disguised as a civilian transport. Most heavy vessels ignore you but a small fighter is approaching with weapons hot!
  • You arrive to find a Rebel battalion encircling a nearby planet, launching landing parties. A small scout moves toward your position. Prepare for a fight!
  • As soon as you arrive you find yourself in the debris of a fierce battle. However, only Rebel warships remain and you find yourself immediately under attack.
  • Shots fly by and your computer registers multiple weapon locks as soon as you arrive. Evasive action!
  • What was once a great series of space stations is now nothing but a small ring of debris around the nearby moon. There's no time to mourn the dead; an enemy approaches!
  • The Federation seems to have put up a good fight. A number of Rebel ships lie broken or wounded. However their overwhelming numbers force the remaining Federation forces to retreat. Hopefully you can get away in time as well.
    • Fight a Rebel ship.
      • (After destroying enemy ship) There's no time to salvage all of the wreck, the fleet is still nearby. Get ready to jump!
        • You receive a low amount of scrap.
      • (After killing enemy crew) There isn't time to salvage the enemy ship but your crew made off with a few nearby materials. Prepare to jump.
