This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Abandoned Sector
    at a distress beacon.

A distress beacon pulses weakly from a Rockman ship in this system... their hull (and their crew) are being mined by the Lanius, lasers and weapons tearing through the ship!

  1. Attack the Lanius ship.
    • The Rockmen need your help - you target the Lanius ship and grimly prepare for battle.
      • Fight a Lanius ship.
  2. Leave the Rockmen to their fate.
    • As you make your escape, the Rockman's ship's engines explode, and you watch the Lanius ship slowly feed on the remains - and the crew.
      • Nothing happens.

Contact the RockmenEdit

  • The Rockmen give an awkwardly-translated message that seems to indicate something about gratitude. They then jump away without another word.
    • Nothing happens.
  • The Rockman ship jumped away during the battle, but it left much of its hull and spare parts floating behind - you salvage what you can, and prepare to jump.
