This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Pirate Homeworlds
    at a non-distress beacon. The Long-Range Scanners will detect no ship presence. Classified as a QUESTS_OUTLAW_HOME type beacon under the title C_QUEST_PIRATE_HOME_RIVALRY.

A cruiser docked at this planets main gateway station contacts you on secured channels. A smiling pirate lady in a ragged uniform appears on screen. "Hey Fed-Cap, it's you! I've heard you are visiting our great sector. That is so nice of you, cause you are not part of all this petty little rivalries we have going on here. You'll be useful!"

  • Continue...
    • "So before we even consider opening fire on each other and dancing the dance of death I'd love to propose a deal. It's super simple: You go out there and murder the hell out of the Purple Tentacles clanlord. In return you get rich. Just make sure you do not mention to anyone that the Claret Skulls sent you."
      • "Deal!"
      • "No thanks."
        • "That is pathetic, but pretty much what I expect. Run away now, Federation dog. If you are not willing to take sides in this sector you'll be always on your own."
      • "Maybe we just take you out instead?"
        • The whole pirate crew burst into a laughter. "What? Look around Cap: I'm the pirate president of this entire system. I command an entire army of goons that do my bidding. If you think you can come here and start trouble you'll be in over your head soon. Allow me to demonstrate..." Anti-ship batteries all around the planet power up and the cruiser's weapons come live.
          • Fight a Pirate Cruiser with enemy Point Defence System online
            • (After destroying enemy ship) A last hit on the opponent's ammo storage and the cruiser combusts into bright flames. While you salvage from the remains, the wreckage slowly drifts towards the planet until it finally burns up in the atmosphere. The anti-ship batteries have gone quiet.
              • Continue and receive a High amount of Scrap and Resources
                • Many small ships have gathered nearby to witness what is happening. You are about to leave when a small craft contacts you on secured channels: "Oh dear, the leader of the Claret Skulls is dead. The Purple Tentacles will surely want to know about this. Maybe you should tell them your story." The pirate blatantly blinks at you several times and transmits some coordinates.
            • (After killing enemy crew) The pirate elite troops are all dead and the anti-ship batteries go quiet. Strangely enough you can't manage to find the Commander of the Clare Skulls among the dead.
