Abandoned Prospecting Drone

The Abandoned Prospecting Drone is a unique automechanical found on Scylla. It can be found in a small, dark cave near the UDL Terraformer.

Background[edit | edit source]

The drone is property of the Hephaestos Mining Company and was left behind on Scylla when the company abandoned the asteroid. Its primary function is excavation and, despite its limited dialogue capabilities, it can be spoken with.[1]

The unit has only one active command – excavation – and is drilling through the rocks in search of minerals, metals and other forms of "matter designated as valuable". The Stranger may try to convince it to stop excavating since the mining operation is closed but it will decline and farewell them saying, "This unit will store this exchange in its memory banks, always."

Companion reactions[edit | edit source]

  • Nyoka: "You know, it is a crying shame that automechanicals can't get drunk. Or laid. This thing needs both."
  • Ellie: ”This unit needs to learn how to have a good time.”

Additional information[edit | edit source]

  • The drone is equipped with the drill instead of a gun and is the only mechanical painted orange (possibly the color scheme of all Hephaestos Mining Company) automechanicals.
