This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Civilian Sector
  2. Rebel Controlled Sector
  3. Rebel Stronghold
  4. The Last Stand

You detect a Rebel scout on an attack approach to a small refueling outpost. Their weapons are charged, but they're not firing yet.

  1. Intervene to defend the outpost.
    • The rebel responds to your threat, "I don't know who you are, but no one defies the Rebel Fleet!" They move in to engage.
  2. Avoid the conflict.
    • The Rebel ship fires some warning shots but eventually powers down their weapons. The outpost seems to have given them what they demanded.
      • Nothing happens.

Contact the outpostEdit

The outpost hails you, "The pompous bastards expected free service just because they defeated the Federation. Take this for the help."
