This article has been verified for the current PC version (2.7) of the game.

Wanderlust is one of the 4 story event chains that can take place very early. It is extremely rare, having only a 1% chance of taking place in a game. The event chain is connected to the Extradimensional Invaders crisis and completing it will increase the chance of the crisis.

The event chain is completely linear, each event leading only to the next until the event chain is over.

The Head of the [empire name]'s Physics Research Department has gone missing.

Along with their privately-funded, highly experimental prototype Science Ship.

The incident has the scientific community on [capital name] in an uproar.

The whereabouts of the Head - now technically the former Head of Physics Research - have yet to be ascertained. Certain details regarding the prototype Science Ship and the Head's private research have reached our ears, and while some aspects seem too fantastical to be true, it is clear that it is in the [empire name]'s interest to find and recover the Chair as soon as possible.

The Situation Log has been updated.

The Department Head is not in this system.

Either the lead was a dud, or the trail has gone cold.

Wanderlust: The Drones

The Chair has vanished, inexplicably, yet again.

However, they did leave a number of drones behind, as promised. The drones are armed, and their weapons are powering up!

  • 2 hostile Ancient Mining Drones appear above the system's star

The drones' IFF modules had been removed, likely a result of the Head Physicist's repairs, but their threat assessment processors remained intact and somewhat stressed by the Head's invasive procedures.

It is unlikely that the head meant for the drones to attack us, but fact remains that they covered the scientist's escape nicely.

Consult the Situation Log for a Special Project to track the Head from their last known location.

A quick check confirms the Head's claims, and the [empire name] has enjoyed a small but not insignificant boost to our collective body of physics research.

The Physicist has vanished once again, but this time their course had been divined before they were even out of the system.

If they are headed for this Window, then so are we.

Consult the Situation Log for details.

Wanderlust: The Window Closes

Evt wormhole.png

The Science Ship is empty.

All suits for extra-vehicular activity remain in their pods, and the ship logs state that the airlock has never been exit-cycled.

The ship still orbits the star, but is now under [main species adjective] control.
