Aggressive Sentinels[edit source]
I've encountered "aggressive" sentinels which attacked me unprovoked. This seems to disprove what is said in this article about them being peaceful until you disrupt the environment in some way. Does anyone else have this experience? -184.108.40.206 23:22, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Malevolent Force?[edit source]
Is there any reason to actually think that the Sentinels are the "malevolent force"?
It depends on a variety of factors, including the planet or wanted level. The Sentinels article indicates that "On high-security planets where endangered resources are likely, sentinels will attack on sight." If the player's wanted level is still high from a previous encounter, it may also attract sentinel attention.
The sentinels may be the Maleovelent Force, or possible a collective entity created by that force.
