This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Slug Controlled Nebula
  2. Slug Home Nebula
    in a Nebula.

This event is meant to occur at a distress beacon but won't because the <distressBeacon/> tag is missing in its definition.

You detect life signs on a nearby moon - a lone Slug marooned on its surface. "Ah, a sssentient ssspecies, after all this time. I am Slocknog, a wandering hero ssseeking adventure. You may hire me for a ssmall sssum."

  1. Hire Slocknog.
  2. Ignore Slocknog.
    • You power up the FTL, at which point the Slug sends an urgent plea. "Please, I ssee you are a sssly captain. You have an advantage. Very well. I will join your crew - but please remove me from this rock!"
      1. Rescue him.
        • When he sees the shuttle headed for his position the Slug thanks you with what looks like sincerity. He readily joins your crew.
      2. Leave him.
        • You close the frequency and continue jump prep. If this Slug is such a hero he'll find a way off that moon on his own.
          • Nothing happens.
