Colonia Crash Site

A wrecked Type 9 has crashed into the moon Colonia 5 e a at 29.2425, 39.1472, with some of its cargo of Brewer Corp boxes and Caine-Massey crates sprawled out behind it.

Until Odyssey in August 3307 the area was considered a trespass zone, and was guarded by a Goliath; local System Defence Force ships also occasionally patrol the area. Nothing of value has been found at the site; the only collectable object was an Unstable Data Core which does nothing when scanned or scooped. Since August 3307 the trespass area is not present, neither is the Unstable Data Core, though there are now canisters of metals.

In July 3307 a scannable Comms Control was added with a new message:

This indicated that something would change on the 26 August 3307, and on that date another message was added when scanned:

HIP 26176 is near the bubble – it is in a region with many permit locked areas so can be difficult to navigate – from the bubble try heading to Shenve and then on to HIP 26176.

In HIP 26176 you can find a Listening Post (shown as Beacon in the Navigation Panel). The Oaken Point surface site (on A 5 i) is also in this system and should be visited. The Listening Post contains a message with some corruption. Once cleaned up it should read:


Set the escape pod to …o.o.ou’ll find a ship waiting
Travel to Col 69 Sector JI-I c10-4

If you believe in anything I suggest you pray to it


(The numbers at the end of these messages are distances)

if you travel to Col 69 Sector JI-I c10-4 you should find another Listening Post (Beacon in the Nav Panel) and again the message can be decoded, this time to:



I can’t stay here too long. Don’t feel safe….Like
something’s about to appear in the sky any second

I’ve plotted a route to Wregoe Dk-r b4-1. No reason for me to be there

Meet me. Please don’t be long



Travel to Wregoe DK-R b4-1 is complicated by the nearby Col 70 permit locked area – travel first to OUTOTZ NQ-C c26-6 and then Wregoe DK-R b4-1 should avoid difficulties. In Wregoe DK-R b4-1 there is another Listening Post (Beacon) around planet 2 with another corrupted message that can be cleaned up to:


-u were supposed to be here

-im trying. project isnt going well. hard to get away
-screw the project! said u would get me home
-im sorry. one more stop. Ill find u I promise

-synuefe Gb-O c9-8

-Ill try. Im tired. scared to close my eyes

~the dreams?

-just meet me

-ill be there. i promise



Travelling on to Synuefe Gb-O c9-8 there is another Listening Post near planet 10 b which is decoded to:



Stenson suspects someone helped you escape. I can’t do anything that would draw suspicion

They reassigned me to HIP 22460. have to go no questions asked

Have embedded the system permit code to this message. you take it, give it to the press or authorities. whatever you
want. But don’t you ever come here

Run. Run as fast as you can and never look back. I’m so sorry for everything we did to you



Scanning this Listening Post will give you the HIP 22460 permit where you can find the Overlook megaship and Fort Asch, another site related to Oaken Point.

Listening Posts

The location of this crash site is revealed by the three listening posts:

Wasat A 1

…Anomalous signal detected…

Signal matches at listening post. Neche

What do you mean you mean you’ve lost him! I thought you said you had them.

Your orders are to track this guy and make sure he doesn’t talk to anyone about the operation.

Now get out there and find him. If I don’t hear reports that Commander Hyford has been killed in a unfortunate accident in the next 24 hours, then consider yourself a dead man.

…Signal Lost…

Neche 2 a

…Anomalous signal detected…

Signal matches at listening post. Colonia

This is Commander Hyford. To any independent pilots or security forces please help. I’m being tracked by mercs, they’re trying to kill me. Please help me.

I’ve manage to loose them for now, they seem to be tracking my comms and ship transponder so I’ve had to hack this listening post to get a message out.

I don’t know why they are after me. Must be something to do with that last shipment. A private military complex out in the Pleiades. Not Fed or Imperial. I was told not to ask questions, just get the job done and that’s what I did. I didn’t know it was going to put a target on my back.

I’m heading for Colonia. I know a place I can hide out there on one of the far moons 5 e a.

Please send help.

…Signal Lost…

Colonia 2 b

…Anomalous signal detected…

No Matching Signals.

This is Commander Hyford and I fear this might be my last I log entry. so far I’ve been able hide from them, but I don’t know how much longer I can go undetected.

I should never have left that message for help. They must have tracked me using the it somehow.

Well if this is it I’m not going quietly. There is a data cache at the following co-ordlnates Lat:39.1472 Long:29.2425. It contains all my ships log and data scans.

This is some kind of private military outfit, they operate outside the realm of the usual powers. I don’t know who they answer to but the chain goes up pretty high. They are monitoring for alien encounters and tech. People are going missing. They are taking them and running experiments. That’s what I was delivering. Escape pods full of people. I’m sorry for my part in this. It was a job that’s all. Oh god help me…

I’m out of time.

…Signal Lost..
