Menu - research

Research allows you to unlock faction technology, which can then be purchased at faction bases after you've conquered them. Click on any faction name in this page to view their tech trees.

Overview Edit

Research is separated into the 11 factions, each with their own research points. Research points are earned by either defeating nodes within faction territory, or defeating flagships in random encounters at neutral nodes. Free star points are earned from encounters in neutral nodes. For the Daazen faction, Abandoned Stations will also give research points. The research menu will list how many points are currently available for each faction. Research points are dropped by faction nodes and bases as alien technologies. Research points can also be bought in smuggler bases, where multiple faction points from multiple factions can be bought for 1 star per point.

Research for each faction is separated into a tree. Spending research points on lesser technology unlocks further technology down the line, culminating in the flagship for that faction.

Once at a workshop, you can buy researched technology with credits and stars.

Critical Notes Edit

  • You need to research a module to be able to construct it at a base of the appropriate faction and level.

Research trees Edit

This list covers what technology has available to unlock. In most cases, these categories are not distinct and certain technology may require unlocks from two or more categories.

Free StarsEdit

Free Stars technology can be crafted at any base with a high enough level workshop.
