This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

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

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

  • Your sensors are no match for the Slug's telepathic abilities - a ship you never even saw opens fire from astern!
  • The Slug vessel you encounter here has obviously made a big score and is looking to test its new armaments. They picked the wrong ship to attack.
  • A Slug passenger ship hails: "Please, your worthy alien highnessesss, we are unarmed and sseeking asssylum." You approach cautiously, and weapons immediately spring from their hull!
  • A Slug ship - a rogue, you suspect - approaches, but when he sees you're Federation he thinks better of the sneak attack and fires everything he has.
  • Direct attacks are not preferred by the Slugs, but of the three you see at this beacon, one has the brass to make a move on your position!

The ship surrendersEdit

"You have besssted us! Will you accept what is in our storeesss in exchange for our livess?"

  1. Let them live.
    • "Here! We have lotsss of fuel! Take it all"
      • You receive a high amount of fuel.
    • They transfer a meager amount of material. "There... now keep your word..."
    • "Take it and leave ussss be."
  2. We will not accept surrender!
    • The fight continues.


This event is called "NEBULA_SLUG_FIGHT" in the datafiles.

This event has identical intro and surrender texts to the Slug Home Nebula Surrender random event, but accepting the surrender yields entirely different results.
