Missing Scientist

One of the scientists working at the Observation Post orbiting [primitive world name] has been reported missing. He was taking part in a covert mission to collect plant samples from the [planet or moon]'s surface, but did not return to the shuttle with the rest of his team.

We have been conducting a limited search so as not to alert the natives, but so far without success.

Scientist Found Dead

We have finally recovered the body of the missing scientist on [primitive world name]... or what remained of it, at any rate. It looks like he fell victim to a large indigenous predator. An unfortunate loss to our science team, but at least the locals are still oblivious to our presence.

Strange Reports from [primitive world name]

We are receiving strange reports from our observers above [primitive world name]. One of the native kingdoms has rallied under a mysterious religious figure, and we have seen evidence of them using advanced technology far beyond their current level of development. Could this be related to our missing scientist?

Rogue Scientist Consolidates Power

We have received alarming reports from the surface of [primitive world name]. It looks like our rogue scientist is consolidating power - he has given one of the feudal kingdoms access to advanced weaponry, and they are now in the process of conquering the rest of the [planet or moon] in his name.

A plan has been put forward to remove him from power, but it will require significant ground forces. There is no telling what effect this will have on the native population, as many have come to see him as a god.

Successful Extraction

Evt colony settlement.png

We have successfully extracted the rogue scientist from [primitive world name]! Hundreds of natives were tragically gunned down when they launched suicidal attacks against our forces in a futile attempt to protect their "god."

Our legal system will now deal with the scientist, but the impact of these events on the [planet or moon]'s civilization must be immense. They still possess some of our technology, and their deity has just been spirited away by invaders from the stars.

Missile Strikes Observation Post!

A barrage of surface-to-space missiles have been launched from the surface of [primitive world name] at our observation post in high orbit! The station was destroyed with no survivors.

It looks like the primitive civilization on the [planet or moon]'s surface has advanced at an incredible rate - no doubt thanks to the efforts of our rogue scientist. They can no longer be considered primitive, and the window of opportunity to remove the scientist from power has been closed.

Situation Calms on [primitive world name]

The situation on [primitive world name] seems to have settled down a bit since the successful extraction of our rogue scientist. Without him to interpret the data, the technical schematics he brought with him are of no use to them. They have started reverting back to their old ways.

Religious Conflicts on [primitive world name]

[primitive world name] has descended into a massive war following the successful extraction of our rogue scientist. The empire he built has fragmented into several quarreling factions, each with their own interpretation of his religious dogma.

Fighting has been particularly fierce due to the destructive weaponry the natives are now using. Several radiological "dirty bombs" have so far been detonated by the opposing factions, and it looks like the conflict is only getting started.

Missile Strikes Observation Post!

A barrage of surface-to-space missiles have been launched from the surface of [primitive world name] at our Observation Post! The station was destroyed with no survivors.

It looks like the primitive civilization on the [planet or moon]'s surface is continuing to advance at an incredible rate - despite the fact that we removed the influence of their so-called "god." The technology he gave them must have triggered a lasting scientific revolution.
