Missing Scientist is a primitive civilization event chain that can trigger if the Observation Post has Fleet task passive study action.png Passive Observation as its mission. It can only happen once per game. Most of the event chain can be averted if a special project is completed.

Shuttle Crash on [primitive world name]

During a clandestine mission to the surface of [primitive world name], one of our shuttles was intercepted by a squadron of atmospheric fighters belonging to a local nation state. A lucky missile hit disabled the shuttle's engines, and it crashed in a remote wilderness region.

We need to act fast if we are to evacuate any survivors before the natives reach the crash site. All evidence of our presence must be removed!

Operatives Rescued on [primitive world name]

Operatives from the [science ship name] managed to evacuate several survivors from the crashed shuttle on [primitive world name]. The remaining debris was destroyed in a controlled explosion, leaving nothing but a small crater for the natives to find.

The nation state where this incident occurred will no doubt blame its neighbors for this border violation, but the disruption to their natural development should hopefully prove minimal.

Native forces on [primitive world name] arrived at the crash site before we could get to our downed research team, and all survivors have been captured. The natives have established a perimeter around the shuttle wreckage, and their best scientists are no doubt in the process of analyzing it.

They now have indisputable evidence that life exists beyond their own world. Exactly what effect this will have on their society remains to be seen...

[primitive world name] Descends Into Nuclear War

Several of the nation states on [primitive world name] have banded together against the one that shot down our shuttle, after the latter refused to share the technologies they recovered from the crash site. Following a brief conventional war, both sides obliterated each other in a massive exchange of nuclear missiles that ruined most of the [planet or moon].

There are no survivors on the surface, including our captured scientists, and the environment has taken significant damage.

The nation state on [primitive world name] that shot down our shuttle has sent an open transmission into space through one of their primitive satellites. It appears to be intended for us.

They are demanding that we share some of our advanced technology with them in exchange for the lives of the scientists they captured at the shuttle crash site. If we refuse, our scientists are to be publicly executed live on their crude televised broadcasting system.

The nation state on [primitive world name] that shot down our shuttle has forced our captured scientists to design new instruments of war for their military. With this new equipment, they have successfully invaded several neighboring states and are now in the process of uniting the entire [planet or moon] under their rule.

In what can only be described as an obscene spectacle, our captured scientists on [primitive world name] were paraded in front of the cameras on live television as "alien horrors." They were then brutally dismembered in front of a cheering crowd.
