Hawkins Gap Beta Site

An Unregistered Comms Beacon can be found in orbit of Plaa Aec XZ-Z b41-0 A1. Known to transmit the following at 15 minutes past the hour:

DYJEPQY UWLUDCQCKJ XUEOKJ
DYJPQY P6 UNL001
NEHHY LKCJQ 2
BEVGCJP AEL
LHEE EUO WZZX410
IKDUPQEJDXY

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

DYNASTY EXPEDITION BEACON
DYNSTY S6 ERP001
RALLY POINT 2
HAWKINS GAP
PLAA AEC XZZB410
MODESTANDBY

An abandoned settlement can be found on the nearby planet Plaa Aec XZ-Z b41-0 2 at 36.3800, -12.7100.

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

HAWKIN’S GAP BETA MISSION 1/4
Expedition Log: 30/08/3270

“Strange mission this, though the pay is good. Nobody seems to know who’s footing the bill, but Sirius Corp is favourite. Whatever this trip is, it’s expensive. It’s also hush hush. Even the captain doesn’t know what we’re carrying and he’s not happy about it.”

HAWKIN’S GAP BETA MISSION 2/4
Expedition Log: 12/09/3270

“Big bust up today. Apparently this ship is flying without shields and without guns! We had an escort for the first few hundred light years, but then they peeled off and we’re on our own out here in the void! If we do come across anything nasty we’re going to have to hope we can run…”

HAWKIN’S GAP BETA MISSION 3/4
Expedition Log: 18/09/3270

“Not a happy ship. Crew is grumbling. Captain hasn’t been seen for weeks. Cargo bay is guarded by these very unfriendly types. Don’t know what they’re protecting, but it’s enough to get a man killed over, that’s for sure.”

HAWKIN’S GAP BETA MISSION 4/4
Expedition Log: 1/10/3270

“Cargo dropped. Turned about and on our way back to civilisation. What it was, nobody knows and nobody is asking. It’s a bit more relaxed now, whatever that cargo was it was something important. Can’t see what use it would be this far out, but maybe someone knows something we don’t…”

Within the settlement there is a Data Point which may be scanned for an Intel Package, and for Engineer Data.
