  4. Uncharted Nebula

    in a Nebula.

Your ship emerges quite far away from the beacon. You see a rebel ship waiting nearby, undoubtedly stationed to look for you.

  1. Attack the ship.
  2. Attempt to remain concealed.
    • You immediately slip further into the clouds, but not quickly enough. The rebel catches sight of you and moves in to engage!
      1. Prepare to fight.
      2. (Engines) Fully power the engines to out-run them. (Requires level 4 Engines)
        • Your powerful engines allow you to out-distance the ship and eventually lose it within the nebula.
    • You power down non-essential systems and slip into the cloud. The ship never noticed you.
      • Nothing happens.
    • The ship spots you and gives chase. After some quick maneuvering you were able to lose your pursuers in the clouds. You expect they warned the fleet of your position, however.
  3. (Cloaking) Cloak to stay hidden.
    • You use your cloaking system to slip further into the nebula undetected.
      • Nothing happens.
