Hawkins Gap Gamma Site

An Unregistered Comms Beacon can be found in orbit of Plaa Aec TT-B b41-3 B 1. Known to transmit the following at 30 minutes past the hour:

DYJEPQY UWLUDCQCKJ XUEOKJ
DYJPQY P6 UNL001
NEHHY LKCJQ X2
BEVGCJP AEL
LHEE EUO XX413
IKDUPQEJDXY

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

DYNASTY EXPEDITION BEACON
DYNSTY S6 ERP001
RALLY POINT B2
HAWKINS GAP
PLAA AEC BB413
MODESTANDBY

An abandoned settlement can be found on the nearby planet Plaa Aec TT-B b41-3 B 2 at -9.3229, -103.8591.

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

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

“Beautiful part of the galaxy this, really dense clusters of stars, pretty much halfway to the core. Been one long trip though. We’re out here dropping off a series of beacons. Randomius knows what for, but they’re paying, so no questions asked!”

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

“Funny Thing is, I’ve asked a few of the other hands about this mission and no one seems to know who’s behind it. We all picked up bulletin board adverts promising big credits for a long haul and kind of just ended up on board. Not sure it it’s the Feds, the Imps or the Alliance. Still, credits are credits!”

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

“Arrived on site today. Bunch of guys had to go EVA to drop off the beacons. We’re jumping around a bunch of systems here in the gap. One of the Beacons activated all on its own, started squawking some weird code before it got switched off. We were told we hadn’t heard anything.”

HAWKIN’S GAP GAMMA MISSION 4/4
Expedition Log: 01/10/3270

“I’m logging this, but I shouldn’t be. Bunch of guys were talking about the beacons yesterday and then there was a mysterious accident in the airlock – they’re all dead! Feeling aboard is mutinous. Just want to get back home. I ain’t doing no top secret missions again, that’s for sure.”

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