This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

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

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

  • The ion storm here threatens to deactivate your core systems, a fact made all the worse for the largely unaffected Slug ships circling like space-vultures.
  • The Slug ship that descends into view as you enter the ion storm must have sensed your distress - defensive action!
  • You arrive in the middle of an ion storm. Slugs generally avoid these storms but you find one waiting in ambush. Prepare for a fight!
  • You find yourself stuck in the middle of an ion storm with a Slug ship just a short distance away, refusing all hails. You cautiously try to slip further into the clouds, but they turn suddenly to attack!


This event is called "STORM_SLUG_FIGHT" in the datafiles.
