An unregistered comms beacon can be found in orbit of Pru Aescs TY-J a64-1 1. Known to transmit at 00 minutes past the hour:

DYJEPQY UWLUDCQCKJ XUEOKJ
DJPQY P6 UNL 002
NEHHY LKCJQ 3
OKJSHRW
LNR EUPOP QYFE641

Applying a Keyed caesar cipher with the key of EXODUS yields the message:

DYNASTY EXPEDITION BEACON
DNSTY S6 ERP 002
RALLY POINT 3

An abandoned settlement can be found on the nearby planet Pru Aescs TY-J A64-1 3 at -66.47, -56.13

Around the settlement there are four Settlement Comms Log Uplink points, scanning them gives background to the reason for its abandonment:

“So we’ve hauled right out into unexplored territory. Heading corewards, doubt anyone has been this far before. Star density is rising fast, the galaxy looks pretty amazing from this vantage point”.

CONFLUX ALPHA MISSION 2/4
Expedition Log: 30/08/3270

“We’ve been tasked with dropping off these beacons. New tech it would seem. Looks like long range comms stuff to me, but I’m no expert. Can’t see why anyone would want a beacon this far out.”

CONFLUX ALPHA MISSION 3/4
Expedition Log: 17/09/3270

“Reckon I have it figured. We’re dropping these beacons around Earth-like worlds. Can’t be a coincidence. I guess it’s some kind of long term planning by someone. Not sure who’s paying for this gig. Best not to ask too many questions. They’re paying a proper wedge.”

CONFLUX ALPHA MISSION 4/4
Expedition Log: 14/10/3270

“Well, we’re done. Dropped off the last beacon today. It’s going to be a long old trip back to the core worlds. We’re thousands of light years out. Kind of wish we could keep going all the way to the core. Guess someone else will have that little bit of glory.”
