Following numerous player interdictions mostly around the Pleiades sector, the alien ships were reported seen around the known barnacle locations.

It’s been a while since alien interdictions became a regular thing, and commanders flying around the Pleiades were warned about random hi-wake interdictions, especially while having Unknown artefacts on board.

Lately, some pilots reported seeing the same interdictions even closer to the bubble, and earlier today we got imagery of the same alien vessel activating one of the barnacles. Whether it was communicating with it, refuelling or just scanning it is unknown at this point.
