Coprolite Asteroid

Outliner top 500px.png


Although it is difficult to accept, all indications point towards asteroid [From.GetName] being a coprolite - a piece of fossilized feces from some kind of massive life form. It appears to be almost a billion years old, and much of the fossil's original organic composition has been replaced by mineral deposits. Our scientists are baffled as to what kind of creature could have produced something like this.

Pirate Treasure

Outliner top 500px.png


This asteroid appears to have been used intermittently as a base by a band of alien pirates roughly one thousand years ago. A small boarding party entered the base and managed to recover their abandoned treasure hoard. It consisted largely of stolen trinkets and artifacts, but some of it still appears to be of value.

Asteroid Fauna

Outliner top 500px.png


Amazingly, while conducting their survey of [From.GetName], the crew of the [Root.GetName] picked up several life signs coming from within the asteroid. There appears to be a colony of large burrowing worm-like lithovores within the rock, which has been riddled with tunnels. These unique life forms have somehow adapted to a life in the coldness of space.

Asteroid Fossils

Outliner top 500px.png


Fossils from what appears to be several species of aquatic animals have been found on the barren and airless surface of [From.GetName]. There are indications that the surrounding asteroid belt was created from the remains of a shattered planet, and these findings seem to confirm that theory. Judging by the fossils, the planet supported life and was at least partially covered by water.

Derelict Shipyard

Outliner top 500px.png


A large portion of asteroid [From.GetName] has been hollowed out to allow for the construction of some kind of shipyard. It has been abandoned and exposed to the vacuum of space for centuries - if anything useful remained, it has already been looted by previous explorers. The design of the shipyard itself is unique, however, and much could potentially be learned by its study.

Junkyard

Outliner top 500px.png


This asteroid was evidently used as a junkyard by someone at some point in the distant past. All manner of discarded machinery and metallic refuse has been deposited inside the asteroid's weak gravity well, being slowly pulled into the jumble of debris that now covers the surface. There is nothing of particular value to be found here, but a lot of the metal could be salvaged by a mining station.

Crashed Scout Craft

Outliner top 500px.png


A small scout craft of some kind plowed into the surface of this asteroid millennia ago, creating a shallow canyon. There is no visible cockpit on the ship, leading our scientists to believe it was either piloted by remote or through some kind of primitive artificial intelligence. Although it is too damaged to be salvaged, the ship hasn't been picked clean by looters yet.

We have detected an automated mining base built in close orbit around asteroid [From.GetName]. There is scorching on the hull indicative of light weapons damage, and the facility appeared to be stuck in some kind of feedback loop. We have managed to reprogram the base systems and the facility is now fully under our control.

Weapons Target Range

Outliner top 500px.png


Asteroid [From.GetName] is pockmarked with craters from weapon blasts, and appears to have been used as a target range by someone roughly two millennia ago. Residual energy readings suggest they tested increasingly exotic weaponry, including subspace bombs and some kind of singularity generator. Our scientists would be interested in studying the unusual energy echoes that remain.

Asteroid Collision

Outliner top 500px.png


Upon closer examination, we have discovered that a smaller asteroid consisting almost entirely of precious metals recently collided with [From.GetName]. This small but dense cache of metals was hidden just beneath the asteroid's surface, but now that it has been discovered it should be accessible to mining.

Exotic Radiation

Outliner top 500px.png


This particular asteroid is an extrasolar capture, and appears to have been washed by some kind of exotic radiation as it plummeted through interstellar space before finally settling in the [From.GetStarName] system. The original source of this radiation remains unknown, but the [Root.GetName] has been able to pick up a wealth of physics data by studying the asteroid's energy emissions.

Crashed Ore Freighter

Outliner top 500px.png


After identifying an anomaly in the gravity well of [From.GetName], the [Root.GetName] has discovered the shattered wreckage of an ancient ore superfreighter buried deep within the asteroid's crust. It must have carried a full load when it crashed, and the asteroid's mineral wealth has been revised accordingly.

Atmospheric Ecosystem

Outliner top 500px.png


We have discovered a thriving ecosystem in the upper atmosphere of the gas giant [From.GetName]. Massive floating creatures, having evolved bodies filled with lighter than air gases, follow the wind currents and feed off the energy released by the gas giant's frequent lightning storms. These beings in turn support colonies of smaller animals that prey on atmospheric plankton and each other.

Abandoned Cargo Pod

Outliner top 500px.png


A discarded cargo pod was left by someone in the upper atmosphere of [From.GetName] long ago. It has somehow escaped the notice of other spacefarers, and its decaying orbit means it would have been lost in the gas giant's crushing atmosphere within another few years. When the crew of the [Root.GetName] unsealed the pod, they found a stash of alien jewelry made out of precious metals.

Social Experiment

Outliner top 500px.png


A small aerostat colony was found floating just above the atmosphere of [From.GetName]. It appears to have been self-sufficient, and remains from several different species were found on board.

As best as we can tell, the colony was some kind of social experiment conducted centuries ago that ultimately ended with the colonists massacring each other. We have downloaded all of the data found in the colony's limited databanks.

Aerostat Colonies

Outliner top 500px.png


A ruined network of aerostat colonies dating back at least three millennia can be found in low orbit of this gas giant. Their original function appears to have been gas mining, but they have since been abandoned and reoccupied by many different races and pirate groups.

The colonies have been thoroughly stripped of anything even remotely valuable, but the mere fact that they are still aloft after all this time makes them an interesting subject of engineering research.

Debris Field

Outliner top 500px.png


The strong gravity well of [From.GetName] has pulled in a massive amount of space debris which has formed a dense layer around parts of the gas giant. Most of it appears to be wreckage from a series of space battles fought in the system several millennia ago.

Scavengers have already scoured the debris of valuable technologies and artifacts, but a mining station should be able to recycle the metal."

Crushed Cruiser

Outliner top 500px.png


The shattered remnants of a cruiser-sized starship can be detected in a decaying orbit deep inside the atmosphere of [From.GetName]. It appears to have ventured far into the gas giant's atmosphere, perhaps in a desperate attempt to escape a pursuer, only to be crushed by the atmospheric pressure.

The vessel is too deep to be salvaged, but a structural scan of the wreckage has provided us with some interesting engineering data.

Extreme Storms

Outliner top 500px.png


[From.GetName] frequently experiences massive and extremely violent storm systems in its atmosphere. Several dozen persistent storms are visible from orbit, with winds often reaching speeds in excess of 700 m/s. The cause of these storms is not immediately apparent, as we have found nothing in the planet's climate model that would explain them. Our scientists are interested in studying this anomaly.

Energy Signature

Outliner top 500px.png


The [Root.GetName] has picked up a strange energy signature coming from somewhere deep inside the atmosphere of [From.GetName]. It appears to originate from a structure of some kind, possibly the remains of an orbital station, but the atmospheric pressure makes it impossible to approach. Nevertheless, scans of the unique signature have yielded a large amount of valuable physics data.

Precious Moon

Outliner top 500px.png


A more detailed scan of one of the many natural satellites orbiting the gas giant [From.GetName] has revealed a deposit of precious metals and minerals that was overlooked in the initial survey. Although the moon is very small, it has a stable orbit around its primary and appears tectonically stable.

Asteroid Collision

Outliner top 500px.png


A large mineral-rich asteroid collided with [From.GetName] at some point during the previous thousand years in what must have been a major impact event. An abundance of minerals can now be found on the [From.GetPlanetMoon] in the vicinity of the impact crater.

Warp Impact

Outliner top 500px.png


A massive crater on [From.GetName] appears to be the result of a collision with a starship. From the size of the crater, we suspect that a ship traveling at full warp rammed the [From.GetPlanetMoon] for reasons unknown roughly 10,000 years ago.
The [Root.GetName] has picked up residual subspace echoes near the crash site reminiscent of a collapsed warp field, but as the ship itself disintegrated on impact the theory cannot be verified."

A microsingularity recently intersected [From.GetName], passing straight through the core and emerging on the other side of the [From.GetPlanetMoon]. The encounter does not seem to have caused any permanent damage, but it has altered the energy output of the planetary core slightly in a way that defies our current scientific models. Further study may be warranted.

Ancient Life Pod

An abandoned life pod was detected in close orbit of §Y[From.GetName]§!. It is covered in scorch marks, presumably from when the pod's mothership exploded, and preliminary scans suggest it was built more than 5,000 years ago.
The crew of the [Root.GetName] managed to open the pod, revealing the withered remains of a reptilian alien clad in a resplendent uniform. Clutched in one of its claws was a small picture of another individual from the same race - possibly a mate or revered leader.

Solar Sailer

Outliner top 500px.png


We have discovered an abandoned solar sail ship in orbit around §Y[From.GetName]§!. The sublight vessel was built by an unknown culture, and appears to be several thousand years old. One of the massive sails has a large tear where some kind of object passed through - most likely a meteoroid - which appears to have disabled the vessel. Although the technology of the ship is severely outdated, it does possess some interesting engineering design choices.

Glancing Hit

While approaching §Y[From.GetName]§!, the §Y[Root.GetName]§! suddenly received a glancing hit by several passing mass driver rounds. The projectiles were billions of years old, and based on their trajectory they appear to be stray rounds fired from a neighboring galaxy. After missing their intended target, they continued on their journey for untold millennia - until today. The rounds we have recovered are of an advanced design despite their incredible age.

For some reason, someone has towed an asteroid into a stable orbit around §Y[From.GetName]§!. The massive engine sections and breaking thrusters can still be found on the surface, although they have long since been rendered inoperable. Whoever did this also mined the asteroid for minerals, but these operations were seemingly abandoned shortly after they begun.

Nuclear Devastation

Outliner top 500px.png


Our survey of §Y[From.GetName]§! has revealed that it used to be a pristine continental [From.GetPlanetMoon] with a mild climate as little as a thousand years ago. In stark contrast, the atmosphere today is extremely toxic, the surface highly irradiated and the world has long since lost the ability to support life.

We have detected signs that the [From.GetPlanetMoon] was the scene of an incredibly destructive thermonuclear war waged between factions of a relatively advanced indigenous pre-space civilization.

Runaway Greenhouse Effect

Outliner top 500px.png


There is evidence that the current climate of §Y[From.GetName]§! is the cause of a runaway greenhouse effect triggered by massive amounts of pollution. The oceans have boiled away and the [From.GetPlanetMoon] is permanently enclosed in a dense cloud layer due to the thick atmosphere.

Scattered ruins from the indigenous civilization can still be found on the surface, suggesting an overpopulated culture that perished in the mid to late stages of an Industrial Age.

Although toxic to most forms of known life, §Y[From.GetName]§! supports a thriving ecology within the high pressure of its atmosphere. Life here uses ammonia instead of water as a solvent, and has developed in ways that differ significantly from previously established ecological models. Its study would greatly benefit our knowledge of xeno biology.

Silicon Life Forms

Some kind of burrowing silicon-based life form inhabits a vast network of tunnels beneath the barren surface of [From.GetName]. As best as we can tell, the creatures feed off rocks and there is evidence to suggest that they possess a rudimentary form of intelligence. Their tunneling efforts have shuffled large amounts of valuable minerals to the surface.

Special Project Completed

Outliner top 500px.png


Science Officer [Root.GetLeaderName] has deduced that [From.From.GetName] served as an orbital graveyard, where members of the dead alien species we found came to die. Gravity took care of the rest, slowly pulling the remains into the gas giant over a period of millions of years.

This ancient cycle seems to have stopped abruptly 15 million years ago when the last creature arrived. We can only speculate as to whether they were hunted to extinction by spacefaring civilizations or met their end through some other calamity.

Gigantic Skeleton

Outliner top 500px.png


What was previously thought to be assorted mountains in the southern hemisphere of [From.GetName] have been identified as the massive skeletal remains of a single colossal alien life form.

The bones have been dated as 3.4 billion years old, but our scientists have ruled out that [From.GetName] could have supported life on that scale at any point in the [From.GetPlanetMoon]'s history. Science Officer [Root.GetLeaderName] has prepared a special research project to delve further into this mystery.

Much smaller bones from at least three separate species were found within the larger skeleton, and we assume these came from members of the crew.
For unknown reasons, this organic starship suffered catastrophic damage and crash-landed on [From.From.From.GetName]. While we cannot begin to understand the biological engineering necessary to "grow" a starship like this, the study of these bones alone have substantially advanced our knowledge.

Our continued studies of the massive skeletal remains on [From.From.From.GetName] have managed to shed some light on how the creature ended up on the [From.From.From.GetPlanetMoon]. There are very faint residual energy readings that indicate some kind of dimensional portal existed briefly towards the rear of the skeleton.

Science Officer [Root.GetLeaderName] theorizes that the creature passed through this gateway from another dimension only to quickly perish in the hostile environment of [From.From.From.GetName]. Why it did this and where it came from are questions that may never be answered.

Signs of Battle

Outliner top 500px.png


There is clear evidence that a massive space battle took place in close orbit of [From.GetName] at some point in the last 5,000 years. The surface on one side of the [From.GetPlanetMoon] is pockmarked with craters from stray weapons blasts, and scans from the [Root.GetName] have picked up several hulks on the ground.
Though these wrecked ships are all in very poor condition, the fact that anything remains at all after the damage they must have sustained is a testament to their advanced design. Science Officer [Root.GetLeaderName] is preparing an expedition to sift through these derelict hulls for any valuable technologies.

The team under Science Officer [Root.GetLeaderName] has finished their expedition on [From.From.From.GetName] and returned to the [Root.GetName]. Thankfully, the starship graveyard on the surface proved to be a technological treasure trove.

Studying the remains of these vessels has advanced our research in certain fields by several years, and there are yet things to discover. A permanent science outpost in orbit would be a great boon to our starship engineering efforts.

The team under Science Officer [Root.GetLeaderName] has finished their expedition on [From.From.From.GetName] and returned to the [Root.GetName]. Sadly, the wrecked starships on the surface were too badly damaged to recover any useful technologies.

These vessels were clearly very advanced, however, and we could gain valuable engineering insights if we analyze the way they were designed. We should consider the construction of a permanent science outpost in orbit.

Alien Mural

Outliner top 500px.png


While conducting surface scans of [From.GetName], Science Officer [Root.GetLeaderName] and the crew of the [Root.GetName] discovered what appears to be an artificially carved slab of rock covered in alien writing. They have not detected any other signs of alien activity on the [From.GetPlanetMoon], and exactly how this mural came to be here is a mystery. We have prepared a special project to translate the text.

Science Officer [Root.GetLeaderName] has managed to partially translate the alien mural discovered on [From.From.GetName]. It is a memorial for an extinct alien race that once maintained a small interstellar empire in this region of the galaxy. They were apparently exterminated by the creators of the mural, a fact that they seem to regret.
Given that the mural has been dated to be in excess of 300 million years old, it is likely that its creators are also extinct by now. Perhaps most interesting of all is the material that the mural was made of - despite its age, it is in remarkably good condition.

Science Officer [Root.GetLeaderName] has managed to partially translate the alien mural discovered on [From.From.GetName]. The text contains a staggering amount of data, and the mural evidently serves as some sort of low-tech library. It describes, in broad terms, the collected technological knowledge of an alien civilization that dominated this region of the galaxy some 80 million years ago.

A lot of it is already known to us, but the data does contain several promising leads for technologies we had yet to consider. There is enough data here to keep our scientists busy for decades, but we will need an orbital research facility to continue the translation efforts.

Automated Shipyard

Outliner top 500px.png


While conducting their survey of [From.GetName], the [Root.GetName] detected the remains of an automated shipyard in orbit. It is at least a thousand years old and seems to have been subjected to a heavy missile barrage, but one of its manufacturing bays is still in working condition.

Science Officer [Root.GetLeaderName] is confident that power can be restored to the shipyard, but it would be a significant project.

Science Officer [Root.GetLeaderName] has successfully restored power to the automated shipyard over [From.From.From.GetName]. The facility immediately resumed its interrupted construction order, using what materials it had on hand to build three advanced raiders of an unknown design.
Unfortunately, the ancient facility broke down completely afterwards and has been deemed beyond repair. We have sent crews to the new ships and commissioned them into our fleet.

Gas Giant Ship

Active scans of [From.GetName] have picked up what appears to be a large ship deep inside the atmosphere of the gas giant. Judging by the nearby debris, there have been several failed attempts to salvage this derelict in the past. Any ship strong enough to withstand such crushing gravity must be a magnificent prize, and Science Officer [Root.GetLeaderName] has proposed a salvage project of our own.

In a masterful display of engineering, the team under Science Officer [Root.GetLeaderName] has managed to gently raise the derelict ship on [From.From.GetName] to the gas giant's upper atmosphere. Despite its age, the ancient cruiser is in remarkably good condition and we have restored power to its systems. No trace of the original crew remains, but we have brought over our own and commissioned the ship into the fleet.

The attempt by Science Officer [Root.GetLeaderName] to salvage the derelict ship from the atmosphere of [From.From.GetName] was a failure. The gas giant's heavy gravity disabled the engines of one of our engineering tugs, which then collided with the derelict. Several lives were lost, and the ancient vessel was pushed even deeper into the atmosphere - beyond our reach.

Terminal Orbit

One of the many moons circling [From.GetName] has a terminal orbit. It will soon collide with the gas giant in what is sure to become a massive impact event. This event has been millions of years in the making, and it is a startling coincidence that the impact has been fated to occur just after a visit by one of our ships.

Many of our scientists wish to observe and record the event, but we only have a narrow window before it is too late.

Terraforming Candidate Discovered

Outliner top 500px.png

Event trigger.png The below description is one of several available for this event.

Our detailed survey of [From.GetName] has revealed that it may once have supported life in the distant past. There are significant deposits of frozen water at the polar ice caps and beneath the [From.GetPlanetMoon]'s surface. The existence of valley networks suggest that the water may once have flowed freely.
Terraforming this [From.GetPlanetMoon] would theoretically be possible, but we do not yet possess the technology to accomplish this monumental task within a realistic timeframe.
