This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Quarantine Sectors
    at a non-distress beacon. The Long-Range Scanners will detect no ship presence. Classified as a NEUTRAL_QUARANTINE type beacon under the title QUARANTINE_CIVILIAN_DISEASE_CHOICE.

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

  • Your jump completes and the scanners warn of a civilian ship with active weapons-targeting you. You hail them to ask what this is all about. "Sorry Captain, we have sick people on board and we need scrap to buy pharmaceuticals. We don't ask for much, but we eh... will take it by force if you don't comply."
  • A harmless looking civilian ship hails you, "I'm sure you noticed what's going on around here. You look pretty well equipped. We demand some of your scrap. Please, we need it to get medical aid."
  • You are somewhat glad that some civilians made it off their disease-ridden worlds. Still, most of them indeed might spread the plague, and on top of that, like the crew of this ship, engage in piracy to survive.
  • While you circle the beacon a civilian ship approaches with full impulse power, "Eh... Federation ship, this is a hold-up. We don't have medical documentation and we are as good as dead if we don't manage to get scrap to buy them. So, eh... please hand over some of your supplies?!"
  • A militarized civilian ship has made it to this remote beacon. They threated to "blow your ship up" if you don't hand over some scrap or medicine.
  • You drop below FTL speed and discover a small craft. Life signs aboard are fluctuating, these people are victims of the disease. Their ship is damaged and they demand some supplies, politely but determined.
    • Transmit some scrap.
      • "Thank you, thank you! We are sorry, but we have no choice but to resort to these kind of measures."
        • You lose 10-15 scrap.
    • (Heal Bomb) Offer to teleport some nano-meds in exchange for free passage. [ Missiles: -1 ]
      • You doubt this will save them, but at least this way no one gets hurt here. The sick civilians are deeply grateful, they let you pass and even offer a tiny amount of their scrap to compensate for the payload.
        • You lose 1 missile and receive 5-10 scrap.
    • (Pharmaceuticals) Hand out some placebos.
      • You doubt the medicine you administer will have any effect. But the civilians are desperate enough to believe almost anything. They even offer a meager payment.
        • You receive a low amount of scrap.
    • (Engi Med-bot Dispersal) Offer to transmit some nano med-bots to their ship if they let you go.
      • You doubt this will save them, but at least this way no one gets hurt here. The sick civilians are somewhat grateful. They insist on compensating for your help, but they have almost nothing themselves.
        • You receive 5-10 scrap.
    • Refuse to give them anything.
      • "We don't want to do this, but you asked for it."

Fight a Civilian Ship Edit

  • (After destroying enemy ship) The text for this outcome varies, and could be any of the following:
    • The ship is torn apart and the fire of the explosion sterilizes the wreckage. You hope its destruction will keep the disease from spreading further.
    • Your cruiser is showered with radiation as the ship's reactor core explodes. You hope this will have eliminated any traces of the disease in its wreckage.
    • The ship's ammunition ignites and quickly turns the craft into a charred husk. If the individuals aboard this ship where infected then they will have no more chance to transmit the disease
    • .A ship full of sick people explodes. You've done the ghastly job of the quarantine fleet for them.

  • (After killing enemy crew) The text for this outcome varies, and could be any of the following:

    • All the sick crewmen have been killed aboard their ship. Entering it in order to salvage might still pose a serious health risk.
