Game description[]

A technology module harvested from the remains of a large interstellar starship. May be collected from freighter crash sites or salvaged during frigate expeditions.

Useless in its current form, a Research Station aboard your freighter may be able to convert it into useable technology.




Very Rare[]

  • Certain Mission Board jobs. (1%)
  • Destroying cargo pods attached to NPC Freighters (1%)
    • This results in a wanted level of 2 and player will be engaged by Sentinel starships (Only in non-Outlaw Systems).
    • Does not result in standing change unless nearby pod-ships are destroyed in crossfire.
      • Infra-Knife Accelerators are great for quickly destroying multiple pods with minimum stray shots
      • Note: some pod-ships may spawn inside the freighter-attached cargo pods
    • Mind the inventory, as thousands of excess Gold, Platinum, Magnetised Ferrite, Ionised Cobalt, and Chromatic Metals will quickly fill the inventory.
      • This also makes it an efficient way to gain units and nanites early in the game
  • Destroying the standalone pod-ships that accompany NPC Freighters (1%)
    • This results in a wanted level of 2 and player will be engaged by Sentinel starships.
    • This results in a reduction in the standing with the NPC race for every ship destroyed
