What determines what races a slaver can provide?



  • When encountering a slaver ship, you have a couple of options to acquire a new crew member. You can buy slaves, fight to receive a slave as a bribe, or kill the slaver crew to gain your choice of slaves.

    Is there anything that affects which races are involved, or is it completely random?

    For example: If I am in an Engi controlled sector, am I more likely to get an Engi from slavers?



  • There are a couple different ways to resolve a slaver encounter which will result in new crew members:

    Friendly Slaver

    • Buy a slave.
      • Receive 1 random crew member.
    • Using a level 2+ Teleporter.
      • Outcomes 1: Receive 1 random crew member and fight the slavers.
      • Outcomes 2: Receive 1 random crew member and fight the slavers.
      • Outcomes 3: No crew member up front, but fight the slavers.
    • Fight the slaver scum.
      • See below.

    Pirate Slaver

    • Fight the slaver scum.
      • See below.
    • If you have level 6+ Engines, you can attempt to outrun the slavers. If this fails, you will fight the salvers.

    Fighting the slavers:

    The outcome of the fight can lead to a new crew member even if you got one through the teleporter dialogue option.

    • Slavers surrender.
      • Receive 1 random crew member.
    • Kill the slaver crew.
      • Outcome 1: Receive 1 random crew member.
      • Outcome 2: Receive your choice of a Rock, Mantis, or Engi crew member.
      • Outcome 3: No crew member.
    • Destroy the ship.
      • No crew members.

    All in all, crew members you receive are of a random race, but there is an option to get your choice of Rock, Mantis, or Engi if you do things correctly.
