This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Slug Controlled Nebula
    at a distress beacon in a Nebula.

You arrive to find a Slug ship in the middle of boarding a disabled Rock freighter.

  1. Engage the Slug ship.
    • You charge your weapons and the Slugs immediately back down. When you return to the freighter, the Rockmen have already repaired the worst of their damage and jump away without another word.
      • Nothing happens.
    • You charge weapons and the Slugs quickly change course to meet your charge.
      • Fight a Slug ship.
        • (After destroying enemy ship) With the Slug ship destroyed, you retrieve some scrap and return to the Rock ship.
          (After killing enemy crew) With the Slugs no longer a threat, you strip the ship and return to the Rockmen.
          • You receive a medium amount of scrap and resources.
            1. Continue...
              • It appears that the Rock ship left during your battle. You doubt they could have been more ungrateful for your assistance.
                • Nothing happens.
              • After the battle the Rock ship hails you. Their captain simply says, "Thanks." and jumps away. That's pretty gracious of them, considering the Rockmen's reputation.
                • Nothing happens.
              • It appears the Rock ship was long since abandoned. You strip what you can from it.
  2. Ignore them.
    • 2x: You have no desire to provoke Slugs in their own territory. You leave them alone.
      • Nothing happens.
    • After the Slugs board the ship, you are surprised to see the Rock ship spring to life and decimate the other ship. They message you, "Pathetic. You are either a coward or an ally of the Slugs. Either way, you don't deserve to live."
