From the pictures (and my own observation at the site yesterday) there seems to be a well-like hole in the floor of the cockpit-like structure that resembles the hole on the underside in the middle of the ship.
I wonder if they are connected since the cockpit is exactly in the middle on the top of the ship.

Here another pic where you can see the hole on the bottom of the cockpit.

That's interesting! I've always thought the balls went to the underside, but thought they passed round where the cockpit curves into the interior of the ship (towards the top right in your image), but this definitely makes it look like there's a hole straight down to the bottom.

Haven't got time to find the old posts or fish out the photos right at the mo, but the patterns on the balls in the cockpit matched the patterns that could be seen inside the circle/dome/hole in the centre of the underside of the ship.
 
you guys are all at the barnacle sites like those people from that movie

Alright, so how many events have we had all together and what times did these occur. I know there was sheet that was trying to put that info to gether but I think it got buried a while back.
 
This one : https://goo.gl/forms/hlTKZGGQU2jaoqSH2 (1 response, so if you want to start another you won't lose much!)

I can see with the rarity of these why so little responses but at the same time, I think we all need to start to spread out to more areas than just the one site. It seems like everybody is going to this one system, we need CMDRS in all systems with barnacles trying to get this event to trigger. Spent a day out in California at a site, swithching modes for about 30 minutes, then I just let it run for 6 hours and still nothing.


Really mad that I didn't push the record button with my only experience. I thought I had but came back to see that, alas, I was wrong. Was so mad at myself.

I know people people are loving being able to get these close of video of the ship, but why is no one looking at the barnacle? Does it look any different during the encounter?
 
Right, I don't know though if these are refueling stations you'd think they'd get regular use, nonetheless, they are interacting and taking something so you'd think different ships would do them at different times. And since we know where they will be why not set up so they can have certain intervals. Especially if these thing only trigger on instance changes.
It would be easy to justify a regular schedule for these events if this is a big gathering operation, and we are seeing the drones collecting resources before heading back to the central dropoff. Or to assume the insectoid analogy, the bees gathering nectar before taking it back to the hive :)

I think for this particular event a schedule would be awesome. We know we they are going to be there. So why not instead of it being random or based upon instance, just set a few times during the day they would come and refuel then let us come and watch, have little viewing parties...like the independence day scenes. Maybe they can even evolve it so later down the line once we get familiar with the schedule and certain behaviour that may be they can add another variant that might cause damage or something.
 
It could be that the meta-alloys are a by-product of the energy (or whatever is being collected) generation. Just because the alloys are useful to us doesn't mean they're of interest to them.
Yes, this is my point. IF the MA/other materials on the barney spikes are not being harvested then there is no resource conflict as the basis for war. Moreover the flowership event would not be "harvesting" as we understand the term, it could be "refuelling" the flowership, or it could perhaps be the flowership "refuelling" the barney. We don't yet know enough about the processes involved, we need more science!

That's what I've been thinking! I believe the barnacles to be resource extractors and refineries for fuel. The spikes and MA's could be byproducts of the extraction or refining process contaminating the earth. It would explain the fact that Corrosion Resistant Racks made from MA's would be resistant to the UA's. They'd be of the same organic structure as the Unknown Ships and the UA's themselves. Been doing a lot of research out of my weaponless DBX ��
