  5. Geology & Surface Organics
The Geology & Surface Organics department’s primary focus is to catalogue lifeforms and plantlife keeping an open mind to how and where they develop and to record and study geological formations found naturally on other worlds. By careful measurement and study we advance further in understanding our natural universe.

For a chronological view of events and discoveries, visit the Canonn Timeline in the Lore pages.

Amphora Plant

Amphora Plant

These are relatively rare organics (see in-game Codex for locations), and they will appear on the Navigation panel as Biological signals. There appears to be only a single classification.

UA and Barnacle Firefly Interaction

turned_in_not, ,

Unknown Artefacts and Barnacles have small firefly looking whisps of blue/green lights flying around them. What these fireflies actually are, have yet to be discovered and there are many theories about their origin and usefulness. However the link between the two objects to have a common starting point is a most common theory only boosted by the recent discovery of the large Unknown Structures and the confirmed reports of Thargoids.

Guardians Trees (Brain Trees)

Guardians Trees or Brain Trees Mainly found in Ejecta Craters around Guardians Ruins areas. They are found on any type of world as long as the world has some form of Volcanism. Ejecta Craters can be recognised from orbital cruise. You usually see lines coming off of the crater, though sometimes these can be hard…
