Several amoebic creatures are in orbit around the system's planets.
Type of Menace System Confined Encounter
Introduced in Lords of Winter 1.0
Details The Pod will investigate anything that comes close to them, preventing survey missions from completing.
Tactics They do not disturb a functioning Gate, so Gate missions will have an initial encounter in which the Pod can be avoided, then depart without the deployed Gate being harassed thereafter. Their weapons do very little damage to planets and are very accurate. A planet with the Gardener at it will be continually attacked by these.
