    at a non-distress beacon. The Long-Range Scanners will detect no ship presence. Classified as a CIVILIAN_QUEST type beacon under the title CE_DINER.

A sleazy fly-by diner waits for customers at this beacon. A few ships are docked and no one seems to care about your arrival.
  1. Dock with the station for a meal marginally better than shipboard rations.
    • 2x: A sleek looking type in an expensive suit approaches you while you sit over your distasteful space-fries. "Greetings, Captain. I understand you command this vessel docked out there? My name is Mr. Johnson. I represent the Waypoint-Junta corporation. I might have a little freelance work for you."
    • 2x: While you are nibbling at your synth-burger a formally dressed human female approaches you. She wears the platinum needle of the interstellar trade union. "I have a proposition for you, Captain. May I sit?"
    • 2x: Sipping your unfair traded interstellar coffee brew, you overhear a conversation at the neighboring table, "A cruiser is waiting at a nearby beacon." "We appreciate it." "You will hand over your ship and submit to processing." "We understand." "As deserters you will not retain your Federation rank in the Rebel fleet, but we will find a suitable position for you." "We... understand."
      • Make sure the Rebel agents don't notice you.
        • You slump deeper into your diner booth. "Alright. Meet us at beacon XT-550. For the Rebellion!" "Yes... eh, for the Rebellion!" As the deserters and the Rebel agents leave for their ships, you note down the position of the Rebel cruiser. An encounter with it might be quite dangerous; you consider avoiding the beacon. Still, taking out a cruiser here would probably distract the fleet from pursuing you...
    • After you sit down with your replicated tofu smoothie you realize that a group of Rebel inspectors are having their lunch break at the opposite table. You try to blend in, but one of the Rebels keeps staring at you. He whispers something to his colleagues and they immediately take their leave. You are pretty sure that your location has just been discovered.
      • Continue and Rebel Fleet advances by 1 jump
  2. Stick to the on board replicator grub and wait for the FTL to charge.
    • Nothing happens.

Waypoint-Junta Freelance WorkEdit

"While I personally like free markets and little regulation for corporations like mine, the Rebels seem to view things a little too liberally. They have forcefully occupied one of our research installations. Would you be capable of... liberating it?"

  • We will find a way, Mr. Johnson.
    • "Good! The station is only lightly armed and shielded, but the Rebel presence on board will be substantial. Remember, we need this installation intact. Damage to the station or loss of our tech is unacceptable."
      • Continue...
        • To receive your payment, meet me at this beacon after you finish the job." You are given coordinates and Mr. Johnson wishes you good luck.
  • (Teleporter) We are well equipped for that.
    • "Excellent! It is in my authority to give you some supplies for this job. The station is only lightly armed and shielded, but the Rebel presence on board will be substantial. Remember, we need this installation intact. Damage to the station or loss of our tech is unacceptable."

Waypoint-Junta StationEdit

        • Fight a Corporate Battlestation
          • (After destroying enemy shipThe station's generator core overloads and blows the installation to atoms. Mr. Johnson will probably not be too happy, but you could still meet him at the coordinates he has given you.

Junta Job FailureEdit

      • Agree to pay (Lose a High Amount of Scrap)
        • The right decision, Captain. Our business is concluded. I took the liberty to inform the Rebel fleet of your position. You won't bother anyone else with you subordination. Have a nice day."

Trade Union PropositionEdit

The merchant politely declines when you offer some of your burger. "The trade union isn't exactly thriving within this Rebellion. Mainly due to an increase in taxes and piracy. There are three ships that are attacking our caravans again and again around this sector. I figured a rouge Captain with a badly faked ship registration like yours might be able to handle that. My data says you have quite a kill count."

  • "Murdering pirates is an ugly necessity these days. Count us in!"
    • "We tracked the ships with devices hidden in our cargo for months now, but the Rebel authorities are too occupied with their fleet advance to do anything. Or they just don't care. The trade union depends on determined people like you."
      • "What do we get out of it?"
        • "We cannot officially pay you, because this is all off the books, but I reported a shipment of goods missing that wasn't actually stolen. A shipment of the most valuable trade goods in the galaxy. This will be your reward. Send a burst message when you are done with these outlaws and wait for us to find you." You are given tracking information on the ships and head off to hunt the pirates.
  • "No time for this. We have our own mission to take care of."
    • "Alright, I will find someone else then."
      • Nothing Happens.

Union Pirate 1 Edit

  • Continue... (and activate any combat augments)
    • Fight a Pirate Cruiser
      • (After enemy ship escapes) The pirate jumped away. They must have realized that their position had been tracked because a little time later you looe the signal. It seems they will continue to terrorize the trade unions' caravans and there is nothing you can do about it now.

      • (After destroying enemy ship) The ship breaks apart, you move in to salvage what remains usable, then you track down the position of the second pirate.

Union Proposition LootEdit

You send an FTL package to the closest trade union station. A cargo ship with a scout escort jumps in a few cycles later. You are hailed, "Let us scan your combat logs please... I see, everything in order. Well done, Captain, we will transmit the cargo now."

  • Continue...
    • You take the cargo on board. "Voila! The finest luxury goods from the core worlds. If you can bring this stuff to a Slug merchant, you will be rich soon. It was a pleasure to be working with you, Captain. Take care."
      • Receive Luxury Goods
    • Your crew loads the cargo. "Voila! Advanced weapon parts from Mantis production, smuggled out of their territory via underground channels. The Zoltan and Engi want to prepare for the Rebel invasion, so they will pay very good prices for these. It was a pleasure to be working with you, Captain. Take care."
      • Receive Weapon Components
    • Your crew loads the cargo, which consist of a few ominously labeled black tanks. "Voila! This stuff isn't exactly legal. Some messed up outlaws in the fringe worlds are most likely to be good buyers. I hope they all brain-choke on it. Was a pleasure to be working with you Captain. Take care."
      • Receive Slug Hallucinogens
    • As you open the creates you discover a load of sparkling crystals. You never have seen anything quite like it. "Ancient crystal artifacts. Don't ask me how we got those. Some Rock basilisks would sell half their army for this. It was a pleasure to be working with you, Captain. Take care."
      • Receive Crystal Artifacts
    • Your crew loads the goods; a single heavily shielded container that barely fits into your hold. "Voila! Thats a teal-level subspace containment field right there; prevents the goods from decaying. The elements it protects are used in some complex industrial production cycles. The Rock still strongly rely on this stuff. Was a pleasure to be working with you Captain. Take care."
      • Receive Rare Elements

Beacon XT-550 Edit

The Rebel cruiser orbits a nearby gas giant and is docked by a Federation bomber. They must have detected you: The deserters immediately power up their engines and jump away.

  • Continue...
    • You are hailed by the cruiser, "This is the Rebel Limited Offense Unit 'Ship With No Name'. You interrupted important negotiations here. Also we just have been informed that you are a high profile target. Prepare for combat". The cruiser slowly moves in to engage.

        • Fight a Rebel Cruiser.
          • (After enemy ship escapes) The Rebel cruiser jumps away, leaving a massive ripple in the fabric of space-time. They will probably inform the fleet of your position, but at least you managed to survive this vicious battle.
            • Rebel Fleet advances by 1 jump
          • (After destroying enemy ship) You did it; the cruiser breaks apart! Several major explosions leave only a slowly drifting debris field behind. You collect what usable material floats nearby but the wreckage is so big that more time would be necessary to salvage everything. You run a quick debris-drift analysis to see what you could gather.
          • (After killing enemy crew)
