Random Events were introduced with the Stellar Phenomena DLC for Rebellion, they are a series of randomly generated events that effect the outcome of planets.

Random Events[edit | edit source]

A highly energetic wave of particles ejected from the system's star. Weapons are disabled by the CME and planets affected must delay construction production until it passes.

Gamma Ray Burst[edit | edit source]
