Starbirth is a mission page.
Summary[edit | edit source]
The Starbirth is a mission which is started after purchasing Void Egg from the Quicksilver Synthesis Companion. After the Space Encounter with a strange starship, Void Egg becomes active and produces a number of coordinates which the player must follow to learn new technologies and repeat a long-forgotten Korvax experiment.
Game Description[edit | edit source]
Flesh on Metal Bones
I took aboard an egg from the Space Anomaly. Since then, a strange consciousness, a mind I cannot fathom, has impregnated itself within my starship.
It seeks a host, a fusion of life and machine, so it may have existence beyond the Echoes...
The strange egg I carry called out to another organism, a bizarre hybrid of starship and living being.
Mission Steps[edit | edit source]
Mature Neural Stem[edit | edit source]
Void Egg becomes an Active Void Egg. It now hums a strange music, calling me towards a world of strange, haunted terrain and bizarre colours.
If the mission is triggered at Runanch-Gisa, the destination of the Melody of the egg mission, the player will receive directions to Abgyaz-Mar system, extreme chromatic fog planet Bitid, latitude/longitude +21.67, +57.94. Initially the coordinates are incomplete, and become more accurate approaching the specified location. They lead to a Korvax Plaque where the player is required to provide a Consciousness Bridge, and the blueprint for building one. Building a Consciousness Bridge requires Hexite which the player can obtain from the marked Crashed Freighter. After the Consciousness Bridge is provided, the player receives a Fragile Neural Stem which has to mature for 18 - 24 hours.
Mature Heart Node[edit | edit source]
Void Egg becomes a Stirring Void Egg. It now hums a strange music, calling me towards a harsh world of dust, fire, and ice.
Once the Fragile Neural Stem matures into the Mature Neural Stem, the player will have another Space Encounter with a strange starship, and receive directions to a star system with an extreme Barren planet, where a set of unstable coordinates is received. They become more stable on approach and lead to another Korvax Plaque. At the Plaque the player is required to provide a Pulsating Core, the blueprint required for building one, and the Solar Ray blueprint. Liquid Sun required for building a Pulsating Core can be mined from metal deposits using Solar Ray. After the Pulsating Core is provided, the player receives a Fragile Heart which has to mature for 20 - 25 hours.
Hardened Shell[edit | edit source]
Void Egg becomes awakened. It now hums a strange music, calling me towards a paradise, a gentle world of life and water.
Once the Fragile Heart matures into the Mature Heart Node, the player will have another Space Encounter with a strange starship, and receive directions to a possibly abandoned star system with an extreme Lush planet, where a set of coordinates leading to another Korvax Plaque is received. At the Plaque the player is required to provide an Impossible Membrane, and the blueprint required for building one. Building an Impossible Membrane requires a Hypnotic Eye which can be obtained at the marked underwater Abandoned Building, and Living Water. To obtain Living Water the player has to return to space, and interact with a Child of Helios. After the Impossible Membrane is provided, the player receives a Fragile Shell which has to mature for 20 - 24 hours.
Singularity Core[edit | edit source]
Void Egg becomes cracking. It now hums a strange music, filling my mind with images of a shifting planet, one minute a world of grass, the next a world of strange anomalies.
Once the Fragile Shell matures into the Hardened Shell, the player will have another Space Encounter with a strange starship, and receive directions to a star system with a Hydro Garden planet, where a set of incomplete coordinates is received. The coordinates become more accurate approaching the specified location and lead to a Boundary Failure. Here the player is required to provide Seeds of Glass, the blueprint required for building them, and the Animus Beam blueprint. Animus Beam has to be used on living beings to collect Fragmented Qualia required for building Seeds of Glass. After Seeds of Glass are provided, the player receives a Growing Singularity which has to mature for 20 - 24 hours.
Soul Chamber[edit | edit source]
The egg intones a strange song, repeating:
The Hunter // The Reflection // The Hunter // The Spiral of Reality // The Star Over Water // The Ascending Orb // The Obscured Companion // The Hunter // The Lowly Insect // The Anomaly // The Sailor // The Ocean King // EUCLID EUCLID EUCLID
Once the Growing Singularity matures into the Singularity Core, the player will have another Space Encounter with a strange starship, and receive Portal coordinates in Euclid: 121905417A6B, address 026A:0084:0C16:0219, which lead to the star system Ischel-Althu, planet NMSCord Void Egg - Nyxara. On arrival the player receives coordinates (latitude/longitude -56.88, -159.20), which lead to an Abandoned Building. After interaction with the terminal the player receives a Soul Chamber which has to be filled in with souls of fallen Travellers, 3 souls are needed. Coordinates for the next Traveller Grave are provided. The first coordinate is the same for all players, but the rest two are randomly generated. After the Soul Chamber is full, it becomes Archived Soul, and the player has to return through the Portal.
Fallen Host[edit | edit source]
Once the player reenters the starship, a new communication is received, providing the location of the Fallen Host in the current star system. It will be a Crashed Ship location, but instead of the regular Starship, it will have a Fallen Host Bio-ship. The player will have to perform Biogenesis, providing Mature Heart Node, Mature Neural Stem, Hardened Shell, Singularity Core, and Archived Soul. After that, the ship can be claimed as any other starship. It may become damaged which may be a bug. If the starship design or stats are not satisfactory, the player can reload a manual save and teleport or portal travel to a different system, where a different Fallen Host will be offered.
