Mission Text[]

Much of the Delta Volanis Cluster is uncharted. We're diverting ships to explore that area of space, and I think the U.S.S. <shipname> is right for the mission.

Since the situation with the war could change at any time, I want you to check in frequently. You never know when we could have an emergency that requires every ship we've got.

The Delta Volanis Cluster can be found off the Sirius Sector Block.


Explore 3 systems in the Delta Volanis Cluster, located off of the Sirius Sector Block, and report back with your findings.



You'll need to zone into the Cluster and search for a Delta Volanis Anomaly. Once you're near one, you'll be given one of two options: "Scan Anomalous Readings", which lets you scan for crafting data, or "Explore Unknown System", which will take you into a solo instance comprising one of several mission types, such as:

  • Investigate planet: warp down to a planet to scan for items. Might include ground combat.
  • Investigate decommissioned base: get close to a space base, beam down, and fight off raiders.
  • Investigate anomalous readings: space mission where you gather data from anomalies.
  • Investigate distress signal: space mission where you fend off raiders' ships to protect a dead-in-the-water freighter.
  • Relief Effort: approach a needy planet and provide 10 needed commodities.
