EVENT OVERVIEW[edit | edit source]


Let's rescue our allies.
  — Event Description 
Catalyst.png

Keres has commandeered a harvester and is launching an attack on Umbra HQ. I know many of your allies have been taken prisoner there. If you’re so inclined to mitigate collateral damage, I suggest your fighters take arms and move those prisoners out of harm's way. I’ll deal with Keres.

Keres crashed the Harvester through Umbra's defense system. This gives us an in. Let's rescue our allies before she causes any more chaos.

DESCRIPTION[edit | edit source]

Catalyst is the 52nd event in VEGA Conflict, marking the conclusion to the Umbra season. The Rebels launch a surgical strike into the Umbra, in an effort to rescue Keres VII before she is captured by them.

//INTERCEPTED MESSAGE INCOMING//

Tatiana,

You have been a loyal ally and a true friend. I'm glad the ISC has been left in capable hands. I'm done being an experiment. I'm putting an end to it all. Bishop will pay.

Goodbye Tatiana,

-Keres R. I.

Rebels,

Tatiana here. Keres has commandeered a harvester and is launching an attack on Umbra HQ. I know many of your allies have been taken prisoner there. If you're so inclined to mitigate collateral damage, I suggest your fighters take arms and move these prisoners out of harm's way. I'll deal with Keres.

CATALYST - BEFORE EVENT

Rebels, This is Klavic. Due to Umbra further weakening our species, once again I humbly request the assistance of the Rebellion.

I will grant you access to our Harvesters, however be warned, we have yet to complete our studies of the Unstable Surge Cores that power them. Together we can save both our species.

CATALYST - AFTER EVENT

12/10/2018

Did anyone else see that?

I had Bishop in my sights, then these machines phased in using technology I've never encountered. Bishop escaped in the crossfire but I won't let him get away next time.

My thirst for revenge blinded me today. Luckily, Tatiana arrived just in time to pull me out of the burning vessel.

Rebels, after seeing you fighting against Umbra, I'm willing to put bad blood aside for our common cause - end Bishop's empire once and for all.
 Keres VII
