Encounter at Nabai



Mission Briefing

Standard Mission Length: 3 days

The planet of Nabai has alerted us to a strange creature that was found dead along the shores of its busiest resort city. Prejda, a xenobiologist, has arrived to study the specimen..

Rewards (If Sucessful): 4 Relic Badges (awarded to all ships with completed, non-failed tasks)

(FAILURE THREAT): This Mission has one or more tasks that may automatically fail, check notes.
(RESTRICTIVE TASKS): One or more tasks in this mission require specific ship modules.

Comm Log


Prejda: We've brought the corpse to a lab at one of the nearby stations.
What is it ?

Prejda: From what little we know so far... it appears to be a Silthion.
This far away from the Vorigar Expanse ?

Prejda: It's certainly possible. Our combined efforts to keep them at bay have only been partially successful. We're already aware that some have adapted to new conditions outside the control zone.
Yes, you're right. We did discover some Silthion Hybrids, but they were an isolated pocket under our control.

Prejda: We did study those as well. This is far different than those earlier hybrids.
Still seems odd. How did it end up at a beach here in Nabai ?

Prejda: It could have been looking for food... energy sources... anything. We'll learn more when we finish our analysis.
What do we know about them so far, though ?

Prejda: Not a great deal. Assuming it is Silthion, our xenobiology in this matter is still full of gaps. Sometimes I feel like finding these... adaptations... is like starting from scratch.
The hybrids evolved a way to synthesize their own T-Plasma. They can change quite rapidly.

Prejda: Yes, but doing so simply shifted their energy requirements to things that were more fundamental. Its only advantage was to give them a bit more freedom. If the drone we found was looking for T-Plasma, Nabai is certainly not the place to find it.
What's next ?

Prejda: My science team has made the necessary preparations, but we need at least 200 more specimens to properly start the list of experiments that I have prioritized.
You think there are that many out there ?

Prejda: The Silthion cannot exist in small numbers, and theres no evidence that they will evolve away from that. Find one, and you'll be sure that there are others nearby... somewhere.
Well then, we better get started.

Prejda: By the way, I heard that you performed some energy experiments after encountering the hybrids.
Yes. We developed a dynamo that runs on cycled T-Plasma.

Prejda: Once the experiments are underway, you are welcome to analyze our updated energy data from the specimens... if there is time. That type of research is not my area of specialty, but I'm sure it would be of use to you.
Thank you.

End Transmission


Task 1: Retrieve Exodrone Specimens

Prejda needs a large collection of Exodrone Specimens before the experiments can successfully proceed. Image

  • Note: Must be at least Rank 300 to start this task.

Task Type NPC Hunt
Requires: Disable 30 Silthion Exodrones
Rewards: 1 Silthion Exodrone Parts (on completion)

  • Silthion Exodrone Parts: Permanently upgrades a Silthion hull or defense module on your ship at random, increasing its fixed stats by 50% and its value/upkeep by 100% up to a maximum bonus of 100% per module. Scrap Value (ea): 35000 - 140000 credits
  • Silthion Exodrone Image: (The Silthion Hive) Rank 400 Insectoid. Uncommon. Enemy Type: Legion Mission Task. Abilities: None. Attack: 40,000, Defense: 10,000, Hull: 100,000. Duration: 24 hours. These Silthion were found wandering near Nabai, far from the Vorigar Expanse.

Task 2: Perform Silthion Experiments


Use the acquired specimens to study the properties of the new Silthion. [Image]

  • Note: Must be at least Rank 100 to start this task.

Task Type Mission
Requires: 700 energy, 20 Cloning Pods, 9000 exotic matter (per round) 20 rounds to completion.
Completion Rquirements:14,000 energy, 400 Cloning Pods, 180,000 exotic matter.
Rewards: 100 xp (per round), 1 Silthion Vesicle Evolution

  • Note: A cumulative total of about 200 Silthion Exodrones need to be disabled in Task 1, or pilots joining Task 2 will AUTOMATICALLY FAIL if they attempt the mission before sufficient drones are disabled. It is recommended to NOT even sign up for tasks with failure threats before it is safe to progress them as this runs no risk of accidentally failing due to carelessness.
  • Silthion Vesicle Evolution: Upgrades 1 Silthion structure (Silthion Gas Vesicle or Silthion T-Plasma Vesicle) on the target planet, doubling its fixed bonuses. 100 energy to use.

Task 3: Research Exodrone Energy Usage


The specimen does not appear to use T-Plasma similarly to the other Silthion. Perform research when the other experiments have successfully begun. Requires knowledge of Silthion Hybrids. [Image]

  • Note: Must be at least Rank 300 to start this task.
  • Note: Must have at least 1 un-upgraded T-Plasma Dynamo installed.

Task Type Mission
Requires: 800 energy, 15 EMP Spheres, 40,000 research points (per round) 20 rounds to completion.
Completion Requirements: 16,000 Energy, 300 EMP Spheres, 800,000 research points.

Rewards: 100 xp, 1 T-Plasma Dynamo Upgrade

  • Note: Task 1 and Task 2 must be successfully started before task 3 is attempted. You can join Task 3 without issue, but will AUTOMATICALLY FAIL if you attempt to make progress on task 3 before task 1 and task 2 have been sufficiently completed (task 2 will fail unless 200 Silthion have been killed in task 1). This mission therefore requires good teamwork and patience to complete. It is recommended to NOT even sign up for tasks with failure threats before it is safe to progress them as this runs no risk of accidentally failing due to carelessness.
  • You can start task 3 whenever there is any progress on task 2 (at least 1 round is completed. A full completion is NOT necessary)
  • T-Plasma Dynamo Upgrade: Permanently upgrades a T-Plasma Dynamo on your ship at random, doubling its fixed stats and increasing its value/upkeep.
  • Once you have all 4 T-Plasma ship modules upgraded, you become ineligible for this task in future occurrences of this legion mission.

Models of Success

The following table shows the kind of participation/progress shown to get varying types of success chances. Please note, This is a work in progress and data is in process of being collected (see forum topic).

There may be instances where it seems like there is a big gap in the number of ships on a task. This is not necessarily a requirement, only the most current data available. There may also be different combinations of spread that bring these chances. Partial completions also may be factored in these cumulative requirements. Alternate combinations will be recorded and posted as well in an effort to record the minimum amount needed for varying chances.
