I came across some interesting information this morning about some alien bases in and around the inhabited bubble. After exploring the Thargoid base last week and discovering what looked like mining activities being done by scavenger type bots, I have no choice but to go and look into this. I have the USS Wiggles retrofitted from a passenger transport to an exploration vessel.  The USS Boomer is in dock for repairs and I would like to bring something with a little more firepower than the USS Madison.... Just in case. We depart tonight.
