Thread: Thargoids are scanning for loot and collecting occupied escape pods!

  1. #1

    Thargoids are scanning for loot and collecting occupied escape pods!

    System : HIP19072
    Unidentified Signal Source: Non-Human Signal Source [Threat 5]

    Story :
    Thargoid ship scanning for loot, collects only occupied escape pods (0:52).
    He did a warning when I got close, but calmed down after I retreated.
    Leaves Thargoid Wake after jumping.
    Sadly I had no weapons or Wake Scanner to do anything more.

    Just saw them pickup a few escape pods just outside Oracle
    That's quiet worrying.

    So I thought, too.

    But if the rescued people don't show up at some human space port during the next fortnight, we'll have to re-evaluate the happenings ...
    ◄ Furthermore, I consider that 1st class cabins should be limited to dedicated passenger ships and Carthage must be destroyed. ►

    It's not like humans have been rescuing them. Heck, during Distant Worlds tons of them were dropped into a crater just for giggles. They're just cleaning up the galaxy.

    Very cool video. What happened to the ships that had contact, were they wrecked (or maybe already have been wrecks before?)?

    They were already wrecked, so cant tell if it was acualy same Thargoids that wrecked them and then captured.

    Well then we might not get to see a rebuy screen if you lose your ship...and we know they like probes....uh oh!

    Perhaps we should give an offering of alaves or imperial slaves... OR, all the ships being destroyed were carrying imperial slaves. Wonder what would happen if you were to eject some politicians near them.
