Input data to my storage banks, and I will synthesise reward output across all realities. A range of data is of utility to the Space Anomaly. Today, do you wish to contribute to TRADE / COLLECTION, EXPLORATION or DESTRUCTION?

  • Select 'Exploration'

Thank you! You have selected DESTRUCTION.
Today's directive is to seek vegetative lifeforms that represent a hazard to sentient life, and explore methods of eradicating them. Data from the methods and results of this extermination will greatly augment Master Polo's botanical archives.

Greetings! I am pleased to see your safe return, Traveller!
Did you successfully destroy a number of hazardous plants? Your exosuit's logs will contain valuable learnings on the nature of this flora's life and death.
