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

  • A Rebel captain appears on the screen. "I thought we had been doomed to backwater assignments. This is my chance to get back in Command's good graces! Charge the weapons!"
  • A small rebel research station overlooks a pulsating star. Before you can react a Rebel ship spots you and moves in to attack.
  • You arrive at an infrequently used beacon close to a pulsar. Before long a Rebel ship happens to jump nearby. Looks like you'll have to fight.
