  5. Xeno-Technology
The Xeno-Technology Department focus on the technological advancements of alien species through their weaponry, communication systems, computing technology, and military advancement – we study the very technology their species is built on in order to create awareness. We understand how their technology is used, so if needed how we can counteract that technology.

The Thargoid Barnacle Matrix was first reported to via the Canonn Alert Server August 2nd 3309 by CMDR M.V.Coehoorn. After the initial discovery a total of 45 were found clustered around the Thargoid Titans as recorded in this spreadsheet. These sites consisted of multiple objects: a Toughened Spear Root, 7 Barnacle Matrices, Coral Roots, and…

Thargoid Hunter

On May 18th 3309 the Second Thargoid War took an unexpected turn, when pilots first entering the heavily protected core of the Thargoid Maelstroms were confronted by a multitude of revelations. The first was the presence of asteroids inside the Maelstrom core, followed by a colossal ‘structure’ located in the centre of the asteroid field,…

Thargoid Titan

Thargoid Titans can be found at the centre of Maelstrom (details of how to get to the Titan are on the Maelstrom entry). Titans appear to be capital class ships of around 8km diameter. One study suggests the Titan Taranis is closer to 12.8km in diameter. The area has many Caustic Mines that will trigger…

Shortly after the disaster and massacre of HIP 22460, an unknown anomaly appeared on long-range sensor modules, especially Full Spectrum Scanners mounted on all personal ships. This strange signal was impossible to track and appeared to be transient between multiple systems. More anomalies began to follow after the discovery of the initial one, they would…

Non-Human Signal Source

turned_in_not, ,
Non-Human Signal Sources (NHSS) (not to be confused for Nonhuman Signatures (NHS)) are locations where xeno vessels or technology can be found. At the time of writing, the only alien species that are interactable with in the galaxy are the Thargoids (while there are Guardian Ruins we can not interact with the Guardians themselves). Non-Human…

Nonhuman Signature

turned_in_not, ,
Nonhuman Signatures (not to be confused for Non-Human Signal Sources (NHSS)) are Points of Interest (POIs) that can spawn on any landable planet (with or without an atmosphere) in a system, as long as that system contains an Ammonia-based-Life Gas Giant (ALGG). These POIs can be detected from orbit, after fully scanning the planet with…

Thargoid Caustic Generator

The UIA’s now formally known as the Thargoid Maelstroms have begun taking up residence in the bubble around ammonia worlds.  As everything is ramping up in the thargoid war, it seems there is a lot to look at in and around the maelstroms themselves.  These curious biological plant like creatures/ships known as Caustic generators float…
