Hawkins Gap Alpha Site

An Unregistered Comms Beacon can be found in orbit of Plaa Aec IZ-N c20-1 A. Known to transmit the following at 00 minutes past the hour:

DYJEPQY UWLUDCQCKJ XUEOKJ
DYJPQY P6 UNL001
NEHHY LKCJQ E1E
BEVGCJP AEL
LHEE EUO CZJO201
IKDUPQEJDXY

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

DYNASTY EXPEDITION BEACON
DYNSTY S6 ERP001
RALLY POINT A1A
HAWKINS GAP
PLAA AEC IZNC201

An abandoned settlement can be found on the nearby planet Plaa Aec IZ-N c20-1 A 1 a at 25.0029, 21.5814.

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

HAWKIN’S GAP ALPHA MISSION 1/4
Expedition Log: 21/08/3270

“Damn we’ve come a long way. I really should have looked at the galactic map before I signed up for this. Weeks of endless travel and hyperspace jumps just to get into the vicinity of the place, and that’s before we get down to the work.”

HAWKIN’S GAP ALPHA MISSION 2/4
Expedition Log: 29/08/3270

“Cargo hold is rammed full of strange tech. Looks like a bunch of satellites to me, but it’s all hush hush. Normal crew like me ain’t allowed anywhere near them. Don’t know what they’re for, other than we have to drop them off in very specific locations. Weird, eh?”

HAWKIN’S GAP ALPHA MISSION 3/4
Expedition Log: 15/09/3270
“Bored rigid now, can’t wait to turn around and go home. I don’t care how good the money is, nothing is worth this tedium. We haven’t even started the return journey yet… Randomius Factoria – save me!”

HAWKIN’S GAP ALPHA MISSION 4/4
Expedition Log: 13/10/3270
“Still, it could be worse! I could have pulled the Formidine Rift gig. Rumour is they’re having to double up on ships for that one as the crews are going void-mad and ejecting themselves into space becuase they’ve seen ghosts. Word is there’s something out there.”

There are Engineer Materials scattered around the ground, and within the settlement there is a Data Point which may be scanned for an Intel Package, and for Engineer Data.
