  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.

Thargoid Site

Thargoid Site Survey


This study produces a photographic record of all Thargoid surface structures and an analysis of the structures above the surface. The analysis is used to form the basis of a new way of classifying the sites to facilitate further study of the surface sites.

Eagle Eye Week 11 : Have we missed the point?

We’re now well into week 11 of following the Eagle Eye transmissions to sites of Thargoid interest. CMDRs have mainly been interested in which systems are going to be attacked, as it was clear from the direction of the attacks that the Thargoids were heading towards Sol, the Federation capital. More recently the Thargoids have…

Eyes Elsewhere


While all eyes have been on the Thargoid incursions into the bubble, one commander has been busy surveying the areas surrounding Merope to see whether the extent of the Thargoid range has changed.

What he has found so far is that the Sphere does appear to have expanded out beyond 174ly…

Thargoid Data: USS Logging


The Thargoid Data Gathering project has been a great success. We now have a wealth of data plotting the extent of Thargoid incursions.

However the nature of the Thargoid Threat has changed substantially since they have entered the bubble. Previously we would be able to tell from the threat levels what type of Thargoid vessels we would encounter but now it is not possible to distinguish a Medusa from a dozen scouts using automated equipment alone.

Given the changing nature of the threat, and the success of the previous program, Canonn R&D have upgraded the USS-Survey device to provide some additional features.
