Detecting alien materials and a massive local energy mass in the 1,000 megawatt range.

The Alien Thermal Plant (ATP) is the smallest of the four Alien Bases. It can be found in the Inactive Lava Zone, within the Lava Castle. It was built around one thousand years ago.

The generator is the source of power for most of the Alien technology on Planet 4546B.

There are two locked doors inside the Alien Thermal Plant, both of which require Purple Alien Tablets to unlock. Behind the first door is the Blue Alien Tablet, which is used to access the Primary Containment Facility. Behind another door are three data terminals, one of which unlocks the Blueprints for the Ion Battery and Ion Power Cell. There is also an Ion Cube Pyramid located inside.

Alien Robots roam inside the base, acting as a hazard for the Player.


Data Bank Entry

This system converts thermal energy to electric current at 90% efficiency. Some of this energy is chemically stored onsite, while unknown mechanisms appear to be transferring most of it to remote locations elsewhere on the planet:

30% Stored onsite for emergency use
30% Ground-to-air Quarantine Enforcement Platform
22% Primary Containment Facility
11% Disease-Research Facility
7% Self-Warping Quarantine Enforcer Units

The system appears to be fully automated and - given current understanding of the mechanisms involved - uninterruptible.

This geological data was recorded from the volcanic rock that was excavated to construct this facility. It was possible to extrapolate a number of key trends.

Genetic Divergence:
The aliens recorded data on indigenous organic remains originating between 10,000 and 1,000 years ago. The lifeforms on record feature an unusually low overlap with those encountered so far on 4546B.

Extinction Event:
Soil samples from 1,000 years ago contain 300% higher concentrations of organic remains than the soil average. Data supports a mass extinction event killing off a majority of species and forcing rapid adaptation amongst many of the survivors.

Cause is unknown. Plausible theories include:

- Fluctuating environmental conditions
- Disease
- Meteor impact
- Artificial interference

This terminal is broadcasting data regarding the transfer of a substantial portion of the power plant's energy to a vast facility elsewhere on the planet. There is no clear way to interrupt the power flow, however if the data has been translated accurately then this facility is located in a chasm connected to this cave system, at a depth of 1.5km.
