Limbos is an anomaly event chain triggered by investigating the On the Barren Plains anomaly that can appear on barren worlds. The event chain has the potential of creating another empire on the galactic stage upon its conclusion.
The signal originates from the remains of an antenna-like structure. Exploratory probes were dispatched from the [science ship name] to the surface to investigate the matter more closely.
What Science Officer [science ship scientist] found was a cavernous vault that, while easily pried open, was evidently the last safehouse and refuge of some long-dead race of aliens. While reasonably technologically advanced, it seems they never reached for the stars and perished to some planet-wide natural disaster. The vault is immense, housing thousands upon thousands of black boxes that the [science ship name] has determined to be data storage devices.
A Special Project has been prepared to decode their contents.
Limbo: A New Beginning
After many trials the engineering department has finally managed to transfer the extinct aliens' neural scans to robotic bodies, and the results are exhilarating. The ancient aliens have fully regained consciousness and have expressed a desire to join our empire, requesting our permission to colonize a new planet within our borders.

Limbo: Spirits in the Wires
The engineering department has returned with some highly disturbing news. After concluding the final day of "Project Limbo" with yet another seemingly failed attempt at uploading the alien neural scans to robotic bodies, the scientists returned the following day to find the robots missing.
Limbo: The Awoken
Reports are coming in that the aliens, whose minds we uploaded to robotic bodies, have colonized a planet and now style themselves "the Awoken."
