Orbital Speed Demon is an anomaly event chain triggered by investigating the anomaly with the same name that can appear on asteroids. The event chain is highly beneficial if completed as it adds a permanent free trait to the main species.

Attempts to scan the object in high-speed orbit of [anomaly asteroid name] have been unsuccessful. The object quickly falls below [anomaly asteroid name]'s horizon and the [science ship name]'s instruments are simply unable to keep up.

While [anomaly asteroid name]'s gravitational pull is strong, that alone does little to explain the object's extreme momentum. Either the object itself possesses some extraordinary properties, or there is some gravitational phenomenon at work here.

The object's velocity appears to be increasing over time, and Science Officer [science ship scientist] suspects that it may soon be thrown out of orbit, even without outside interference.

The object looks to be some sort of box, constructed of alien material. Vein-like ridges meander along its sides, congregating at the top in some type of sphere-shaped mechanism. We can only guess at its contents.

Alien Box Contents

Finally, our scientists have managed a peek into the alien box without compromising the container itself. By utilizing an advanced type of sonar, they have been able to identify its contents.

The contents are puzzling or, at least, unexpected. The box holds three small vials, each filled with an unknown liquid.

The box is safe to open, but it will require further research to understand how.

Alien Box Opened

At long last, our scientists have penetrated the outer material of the alien box.

The box holds three small liquid-filled vials - one red, one blue, and one green. The liquids are less alien than their container and our scientists have identified them as primed gene-modification mediums.

For reasons beyond our understanding, the solutions are quickly deteriorating outside their alien container, but there should be enough time to synthesize and apply one of them to our species. It has been confirmed that its effects would be positive, but exactly how remains to be seen.
