    I just jettisoned synthethic meat before a thargoid. It scanned the meat and it really didn´t like it Was just trying to give it an alternative food source. Maybe Fruits will work...

If you come to close, they go hostile and attack (again if you back off quick, you don't get attacked, only Thargons launched).
    Not necessarily, I've deployed hardpoints to run the data link scanner on one after being interdicted, not data, but also not hostile.

    The logos/markings seems to be different to each ship:

    Ok, maybe it's just with the TS, TP and TL then. I only tested those. Someone else tested some Thargoid biomatter.

    Perhaps the markings aren't faction insignia but actually ship names in their language?

    Yup, could be something like ship ID.

    Don't know if this has been missioned.
    They're picking up escape pods.

    Enhanced image. Instead of symbol, look inside.

    I dropped into a non human threat 5, watched the ship scan a load of blown up clippers etc. Had hardpoints deployed and a fighter launched and to a degree it pretty much left me alone. Flew a few rings around it, scanned it and got unknown information (or words to that effect). It did not like being shot at. My moderate, jack of all trades Anaconda did alright for a period, but it did take the shields out when it had finished arguing with the Taipan, so I ran away.

    Just had another encounter with a Thargoid in a Non Human Threat 5 signal. It scanned me, deployed drones and then went to scan stuff. I jettisoned a damaged escape pod and 2 Meta Alloys and it scooped them up and left.

    From the numbers in another thread: second and third row "pulse laser" distorted lettering.

    Hi Cmdrs
    I have been jumping in and out of USS and the Thargoids are only picking up escape pods.
    I think they are taking research material.
