Aegis has expanded its roster of anti-Thargoid technologies with a new device – the decontamination limpet. The device is specifically designed to counter the caustic properties of Thargoid missiles.
In a statement, an Aegis spokesperson said:
“As we know, the Thargoids’ enzyme missiles are particularly dangerous because of the caustic damage they inflict. The decontamination limpet is designed to address this by stripping the corrosive enzymes from a ship’s hull while also performing limited repairs.”
“We have rigorously field tested the device and are confident that it will give pilots a distinct defensive advantage.”
The decontamination limpet can be purchased from planetary bases with military, high-tech, refinery, industrial or extraction-level economies.

Reed's Rest in Merope and Obsidian Orbital in Maia are the latest starports to be targeted by the Thargoids.
Authorities in the affected systems have appealed to independent pilots to deliver foods, water, basic medicines and natural fabrics, and to evacuate civilians from the pertinent starports.
The attack against Obsidian Orbital is likely to dismay the galactic community, as the starport – the result of a community initiative involving thousands of pilots – is seen by many as a symbol of unity.
