The Alien Vents are a huge network of pipes, created by the Precursor Race that stretch out in the crust of Planet 4546B. The pipes have multiple access points throughout the world, and all converge at the Primary Containment Facility. The purpose of these pipes is to allow oxygen-rich water from multiple biomes to be pumped into the Sea Emperor Leviathan's Aquarium, creating an ideal environment for it.  However, at an unspecified time, the captive Sea Emperor Leviathan managed to train Peepers to use the pipe system, through which the Peepers deposit flora seeds into the Aquarium and collect small amounts of Enzyme 42, they then go back to the surface and distribute the enzyme. This process is the sole reason that some life has managed to survive on the planet. Entrances for the Alien Vents are located in the Dunes, Grand Reef, Underwater Islands, Mushroom Forest, Mountains, and the Sparse Reef.
Alien Pipe Entrance Points are vents located in six biomes around the world. These vents allow Peepers to distribute Enzyme 42 to other creatures. The vents have two access points, both of which only allow Peepers one way travel into or out of the Alien Vents. The Peepers can occasionally be seen swimming in and out of the points.

These vents connect to an ancient piping network that extends beyond maximum scannable depth. The pumping system is still functional, indicating a power source exists somewhere else on the planet.
Assessment: Further research required
This terminal is controlling the flow of water to and from this facility via the attached pipe network.
These inflow pipes are being used by peepers to access the otherwise isolated facility.
- Peeper behavior elsewhere on the planet suggests they are not being sucked in by accident, but rather have evolved to actively seek out the correct access points
These outflow pipes are transporting peepers out of the facility, back towards the surface.
- All specimens scanned are carrying the enzyme which inhibits bacterial growth and helps the body repair the symptoms of the infection
|Pipe Access Point|
This appears to be one of the endpoints of the alien piping system transporting fresh water from the surface into the containment facility.
- Peepers are using the pipe network to travel to and from the surface
