Contacting Mantis Clan is a random event that can happen when you talk to a Mantis crewmember in an empty beacon.

Event Text Edit

The Mantis is staring out of the viewport. "I know this system, Captain. Members of my Clan come here to hunt. My kind might still obey the traditions and render assistance. You could attempt to make contact."

  • Contact the Mantis related to your crewman.
    • You put your Mantis on the comm, it sends a broadband hail in its native language. Soon a ship enters scanning range, with weapons hot! "Sorry Captain, but I must have my revenge." This ruse should have consequences for your crewman, but for now you will have to deal with this ship.
    • You put your Mantis on the comm and it sends a broadband hail in its native language. A ship jumps in soon after. The insectoids seem to argue. "My clan says I have become weak while living with such soft creatures as you. They want to fight us."
    • You put your Mantis on the comm and it sends a broadband hail in its native language. A small Mantis ship approaches from the edge of the system. Your crewman seems to be superior to them, and after a short, aggressive conversation, they offer you a slave as tribute.

      • Accept their offer and force the slave to work on board your ship.
  • Don't risk it.
