Stage 1 – Complete the tutorial


The first thing you want to do is playing the tutorial. The basics will be explained and you will be able to learn the game. Try your best, you may die.

Some information that could be useful when cloning crew members and gathering resources:

There are a total of 10 species and 5 types of atmospheres. Each atmosphere has 3 types of plants that will provide your crew members with an atmosphere in order to survive.
In the table below you will find each one of these:

Resources can be gathered in 2 ways, via the hanger and the tractor beam.

The tractor beam will instantly harvest ores that can be used to build items and modules.

The hanger can be used to collect raw forms of resources, and need to be stored in the deposit. From the Deposit, items will be transferred to the Refinery. Raw resources will be refined in the Refinery and be carried towards the storage, where they can be used.


Stage 2 – Play the game


Start a new game with a corporation of your choice. For some trophies, it is advised to do a long mission without making any Genesis. Advised it to do the following:

1. Long Mission
Keep grinding until you achieve the following:
1.1 – 6 weapons to tier 3
1.2 – 6 Species to tier 3
1.3 – 5 plants to tier 3
1.4 – 1000 biomass collected
1.5 – 100 planets visited
1.6 – Refine 60 Iron
1.7 – Refine 60 platinum

When you achieved all of this, make sure you:
1.8 – Make a genesis with at least one species on your ship
1.9 – Have over 50% of one species on your ship to unlock it
1.10 – Do your first Genesis.

2. Keep unlocking species by doing Genesis (NG+, NG++, NG+++, etc)
2.1 – Keep doing genesis by having over 50% of each species on your ship.

3. No death Mission
3.1 – This mission is all about not dying. When you are doing your NG+ mission, you can easily achieve this trophy. Make 4 shields and the Framen/Mechanics won’t be able to board your ship. The only challenge will be killing the giant spider on the Genesis planet. Make sure you take some tier 3 weapon and captain, also take some turrets and shields with you.

If you are really having trouble, back-up the save file to a USB-stick or the cloud. You will be able to reload should a crew member die.

Trophies


Master of the Genesis
Unlock all trophies.

Unlock all other trophies and this one will pop.


Ash
Initiate a genesis with at least 20 aliens/eggs on board.

There are areas that are marked green/yellow/red with cosmic spores. Fly towards them and disable your shields. After a while, your ship will get infected with a lot of eggs/creatures. Initiate a genesis and this trophy should pop.


Everyone Counts
Complete a round where no crew member died on the journey.

This mission is all about not dying. Stay out of high/crucial danger area’s and try to find a Genesis planet nearby. If lucky you will find an O2 planet, for which you can use the basic humans. Don’t go near Framen and Mechanics and your chances of dying will decrease. The only challenge will be killing the giant spider on the Genesis planet. Make sure you take some tier 3 weapons, also take some turrets and shields with you.

If you are really having trouble, back-up the save file to a USB-stick or the cloud. You will be able to reload should a crew member die.

Trying this in NG+ won’t work!


Loyalty
Unlock all corporations.

There are a total of 12 corporations that need to be unlocked. The unlock requirements are all linked to an in-game trophy, making this trophy relative easy.

All requirements need to be met during a single mission.

Monolithic
Unlock all artefacts.

Artefacts are found at sites. They contain information about creatures, resources, genesis planets. They can also contain new modules and upgrades.

The modules found are random and there is no way to tell where you can find a specific artefact.

You can view the artefacts in the main menu, under “YOUR ARTEFACTS” when creating a new game. A question marks means you still need to find it.

A few of the artefacts

Star Civilisation
Unlock all species.

For this trophy, all species will need to be unlocked. This is done by finishing a genesis with over 50% of that specific specimen as your crew. For example:
5 Humans, 3 Roks and 10 Zeleny’s will unlock the Zeleny specimen because they hold over 50% of your population.

You will need to do this for each specimen, there are a total of 10. Being:
Human, Arachnoid Kraul, Liquid, Mantiz, Inferno, Rok, Zeleny, Holo and Dekkah.

The bridge has a search function that can be used to track down each specimen. Genesis planets can be found by assigning crew members to your bridge. This will allow them to scan the galaxy nearby, and increasing the chance of finding a Genesis planet.


Star Team
Have one clone of each species when initiating a genesis.

A Genesis needs to be initiated when having at least one of each species on your ship. There are a total of 10 and these are:Human, Arachnoid Kraul, Liquid, Mantiz, Inferno, Rok, Zeleny, Holo and Dekkah.

There is no in-game menu that will show you if you have all 10 unique species. You will have to count them manually via the crew menu, to the right of each interface. Or just by walking past each crew member you have on your ship.


Explorer
Perform 100 expeditions in one round.

Expeditions are done by visiting planets with the hanger. It is allowed to visit the same planet more than once for this trophy.
On planets you will be able to harvest resources, kill enemies and find sites that will unlock now stuff.


Framen
Kill 100 Framen intruders on the ship in one round.

Framen are hostile NPCs who will invade your ship they are on the same square as you. They can be found on the map (while interacting with the bridge) and look like this:

Framen – The cloud with the skull

They will spawn everywhere, and this will keep on going until you fly away.

It is best to place turrets, energy shields and have some crew members (15+) in order to kill 100. You can do this in multiple goes, during the same mission. If you feel like losing, fly away and repair your ship. You will live to see another day and you can try again to reach the 100 Framen kills.

See the video below to get an impression on what to expect.


Harm Touch
Research at least 3 diseases in one round.

Diseases can be researched at the medical lab. You will need to find 10 samples of a disease to be able to research it.

Diseases can grow on your ship – make sure you DON’T shoot them. They can be “imported” by letting the ship (from the hanger) go on a journey without you. The ship will return after a while, there is a chance that it will bring back a disease. Make sure to let this disease grow to a plant. The disease-plants look like this:

(Note that there are 3 different onces – each with its own disease)

After your crew member gets sick, it will start sneezing and dropping samples. Once it reaches the quarters he will be healed. In order to prevent this, delete the quarters.
Once you have the 10 samples for each disease, go to the medical lab. Once there you will be able to research the diseases. They look like this:


Initiate Genesis
Initiate a genesis.

To initiate a Genesis you will need to find a genesis program planet. Those can be found anywhere on the map, and multiple genesis program planets are present during the mission.

A Genesis planet has random requirements for you to fulfil. Some can be quite hard, while others can be easy to complete.

A Genesis planet is green and is found upon scanning the planet.

Genesis Program Planet

Upon meeting the requirements you can fly towards the planet from the hanger. upon landing, you will need to kill the enemies present on the planet in order to complete the genesis and “win” the game. New game + is available for you when you complete a Genesis program, allowing you to continue with the same mission.

A Genesis planet looks like this when landed:

Genesis Program – Victory?

Last Rites
Heal a sick crew member in their crew cabin with the healing ability.

This trophy consists out of a few elements before you can achieve it. Let’s start with the Healing ability part.

The healing ability (samples) can be dropped by various enemies which you will need to collect. Upon collecting 10 samples it’s possible to research it in the clone lab. It costs 20 biomass and 10 alien samples of that virus (as seen in the picture below). Select the ability after unlocking it, and your current crew captain will get it as his ability.


Healing Ability

The “sick” part is rather easy. Make 2 crew quarters and clone a total of 10 crew members. Now delete one crew quarter and the crew members without a home will become sick after a few minutes. When they are sick(A message will show), rebuild their crew quarters. They will move towards the quarters and will lay down in bed. Press square and the healing ability will activate, making this trophy pop.


Master DNA Reseacher
Research 6 clones to tier III in one round.

Clones have 3 tiers, being it Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3.
Each tier will increase the health of that species. Tier 1 can be found at low danger platers, tier 2 at high danger planets and tier 3 at critical danger planets.

You will need to level 6 specimen to level 3. This will involve some grinding. Use the bridge to search for a specific specimen that you would like to level.

Clone Lab level 3 is needed to clone level 3 clones.


Platinum Refiner
Refine 60 Platinum in one round.

Platinum can only be refined in its raw form, meaning you will need to gather it on a planet, and not with the beam tractor.

Platinum is most likely found in the harder areas in the game where the danger levels are higher. Platinum has the same colour as iron, it can be tricky to spot while harvesting.

Harvesting platinum ore

After you return to your ship with the platinum ores, the crew at the refinery will need to refine the platinum ore into platinum. This process will happen automatically if crew members are assinged to the refinery.


Weaponmaster Researcher
Research 6 weapons to tier III in one round.

Refer to “Master DNA Reseacher“.

You will be collecting weapon samples instead of clone samples. Both trophies go hand in hand. Certain enemies will drop weapon samples. For instance, Turret samples are dropped by Dekkah. Go to the bridge and search for Dekkah people to farm the turret samples.


Alien Ability
Use an alien ability.

Alien Abilities can be found when killing aliens. Those carrying them have a red glow around them. After earning 10 samples you can research an ability at the clone lab. Activate it on your captain by selecting the ability. now exit the clone lab and press square. The trophy should pop.


Almost a Star Destroyer
Build at least 100 modules onto your ship.

This trophy should come as you progress through the game. Refer to the images below to get a general idea on what 100 modules looks like.


DNA Researcher
Research 3 clones to tier II in one round.

Clones have 3 tiers, being it Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3.
Each tier will increase the health of that species. Tier 1 can be found at low danger platers, tier 2 at high danger planets and tier 3 at critical danger planets.

You will need to level 3 specimen to level 2. This will involve some grinding. Use the bridge to search for a specific specimen that you would like to level. Clone Lab level 2 is needed to clone level 2 clones.
