This is a Random Event. Occurs in:

  1. Quarantine Sectors
    at a non-distress beacon. The Long-Range Scanners will detect no ship presence. Classified as a NEUTRAL_QUARANTINE type beacon under the title QUARANTINE_ONBOARD_INFECTION.

This system seems to be completely evacuated. Standard medical checkups that your crew has to undergo at each beacon reveal a worrying find: One of your crewmembers shows signs of the infection. You have no idea how this could have happened.

  • (Engi Med-bot Dispersal) Flood the ship with reprogrammed nano med-bots to eliminate any hostile organisms.
    • The readjusted med-bots eliminate any unknown biological and non-organic pathogen on board the ship and your crewman is infused with an extra dose. The symptoms subside, that seems to have worked for now.
  • (Advanced Medbay) Sedate the crewman and perform a full body-scan. (Requires level 3 Medbay)
    • You are unable to determine the cause of the disease, but it seems to affect the victim's organs and hormone production. The patient is put in a coma and all his internal organs are replaced with synthesized replacements. A radical course, but it actually worked.
  • Try to calm your crewman down.
    • "Captain... RUN!" At first you believe your crewmember is just overreacting, maybe help can be found, but soon you realize they are already frenzied by the disease. Your loyal crewmember turns against you and attacks.
      • You lose 1 of your crewmember which turns into an enemy boarding your ship.
