Aliens have been spotted in the Elite Dangerous universe and players have been able to go to a ruin site within the game to find out more about an alien race, The Guardians. Currently there is a mission you can receive from Felice Dock, Meene system. The mission is to decode the Ancient Ruins. When you receive the mission by docking, you also receive a scanner upgrade which is only used for this. The only known ruins are located in the Synuefe XR-H D11-102 system, Planet 1B at -31.7877, -128.9711. You must have Horizons DLC to be able to take part in this, due to having to land on planets.
Once at the alien ruins, you will find a series of items, Ancient Orb, Tablet, Totem, Urn, Relic, and Casket. You will find each of the obelisks have a require combo to unlock the data you seek. Biology, Language, History, Culture and Technology data can be found.
Right now there is a search of other ruins with the help of an NPC, who last week had a community goal to help players progress in this task. The results have come in as follows:
“Using the data contributed by the galactic community, I have succeeded in accessing the monolith network. But although I have detected a number of further Guardian sites – which is very exciting – I have not been able to divine their precise locations. All I have been able to do is narrow the field to a handful of systems – specifically Synuefe ZL-J d10-119, Synuefe XO-P c22-17, IC 2391 Sector ZE-A d101 and IC 2391 Sector GW-V b2-4.”
