  • New Origins:

    • Broken Shackles: You didn’t take to the stars; you were taken to the stars as an alien captive. So now, you and your fellow prisoners have overtaken the ship and found yourselves banding together. All due to survive and thrive as a diverse new community. Can you rise to greatness from this humble origin? And will your former captors take notice in First Contact?
    • Payback: No one would have believed your world was being watched keenly by an intelligence greater than your own. Well at least until they actually showed up. But you did not go quietly into the night. Your civilization has repelled a would-be conqueror from space, and with sudden access to their advanced technology. So now you’re about to discover just what else is out there beyond the stars.
    • Fear of the Dark: As you’ve explored your home system. You’ve always suspected you weren’t alone in the galaxy. Especially when one of your planets suddenly suffered an “incident” a while back. A very large faction of your own people have long backed against tempting fate out in the dark abyss of the unknown. What path will you choose as you find yourself needing room to grow?
  • Technology and Interaction:

    • New Pre-FTL Interaction Options: What will your role be when the next member of the galactic community tells their origin story? First Contact has new mechanics that allow for a broader range of interactions with pre-FTL civilizations. This also depends on their level of technology and their awareness of your presence. Will your arrival be celebrated, or met with violent panic?
    • Cloaking Technology: Nobody saw this feature coming! Equip your ships with cloaking devices to survey in secret or catch a foe unaware. Keep subtle tabs on your pre-FTL neighbors with cloaked observation posts. Just be sure your own scanners and intel are strong. Since you never know which of your neighbors might be hiding in the shadows.
