An Unregistered Comms Beacon can be found in the Pru Aescs TY-J a64-1 system, orbiting body 1.

The transmission times of this beacon are on the hour, every hour.

The transmitted message is the following:


DYJEPQYUWLUDCQCKJXUEOKJ
DJPQYP6UNL002
NEHHYLKCJQ3
OKJSHRW
LNR EUPOP QYFE641
IKDUPQEJDXY

(repeated two times)

Note: There are two separate UCB’s approximately 20km’s apart, however, both UCB’s transmit the same message at the same transmission times.


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

DYNASTYEXPEDITIONBEACON
DNSTYS6ERP002
RALLYPOINT3
CONFLUX
PRU AESCS TYJA641
MODESTANDBY


An abandoned settlement can be found within the same system on body 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.”
