Quests are random occurrences that can range from escorts, deliveries to chasing pirates and repairing stasis pods. Quests usually pay better than normal battles and require you to jump to a new location.
Damaged Stasis Pod
This quest requires a certain degree of luck to complete. Upon finding a damaged stasis pod, it is fitted as an augment that can be sold for 15 scrap or repaired (Adds a unique crew member) when you are offered to be studied by some scientists (Choose the option to let them examine the pod). This is a rewarding quest as you get a crew mate with an ability (Lock-down: blocks access to or from a room) and a new cruiser is unlocked.
There are three distinct steps involved with the quest and the sector map must have a red or green (pirate/rock/engi) with distress beacons followed by a green (engi/zoltan sector or homeworld) with normal beacons then a red (rock homeworld). If the sector map doesn't contain the proper sequence, the quest will never happen and a restart is needed.
- Pick up the stasis pod from distress beacon at a pirate/rock/engi sector.
- Find Zoltan scientists at a normal beacon to repair the pod (Random encounter from a engi/zoltan sector)
- Find New crew member homeworld in a Rock Homeworld sector.
This will open up the lost sector and a new ship (Crystal Cruiser).
