EVENT OVERVIEW[edit | edit source]

Altairian Artemis Promo.png

No need for a rescue party, Mother. Dr Chiron's research into the Xeno Virus is noble work. Does he not share our objective of curing the universe of the Xeno Virus? Turn away the titans and do not disturb me at my work.
  — V-153 

DESCRIPTION[edit | edit source]

Retaliation is the 59th Event in VEGA Conflict. It introduces the Altairian Ranger T8 Hull, the Artemis.

EVENT QUOTES[edit | edit source]



No need to send for me Rhea. I will stay with Dr Kobus and assist him with his work. The experiment he is conducting on Altairians is showing promising results. For instance, he has just confirmed that Mother's Synthetic Matter Replacement Program has worked tremendously for the denizens of Altair. The descendants of On-Wah, who absconded Mother, on the other hand, are exhibiting horrific symptoms to the Xeno Virus inoculations. See Mother was right in enforcing the program on all living creatures.



Kobus is holding Altairians in his secret lab.

What do you know about Pharmakon clones in Altair?

How is the Priestess involved in all of this?

Is this why your forefathers left Altair - to avoid Pharmakon's Synthetic Program?

We will consider helping you but we need to know what we're dealing with!



This is none of your concern, but as you have come to me with this news, I will give you the courtesy and inform you that the Artemis Ranger fleets heading towards Umbra's Labs have been sent with the directive to eradicate the entire facility. I urge you to let us deal with this in our own terms.


Calling on Ny'tah was a mistake. Not only are her soldiers killing everyone on sight, I can't begin to imagine how Pharmakon will retaliate if she destroys V. We need a plan to get her and any survivors out of there!
