Alien Box Anomaly – Stellaris Easy Guide on Alien Box

Alien Box came to you and you don’t know what to choose? Well then, let’s solve this situation.

On Stellaris, there are hundreds of events that occur after analyzing a planet or expanding its population. Many of them are not simple to understand the consequences of their choices, whether they will help you or harm your civilization.

One of the most confusing events is the ‘Orbital Speed Demon’ which is a multi-step event.

Alien Box Events

First Event

This event will have five phases. In the first phase, once it’s fired you’ll have 3 options to choose from. The first two options by default will advance to the next step, but the last option will stop the event at this point.

Second Event

You are finally introduced to Alien Box and have two options. Again the first two options will lead to the next steps and the last one will end the event.

Tip: Choose the option to study the Alien Box, it will become a project that will yield between 150 and 10,000 physics research points.

Third Event

This event is only triggered for those who decided to study the box, in this case, there are two options left. Open the box or sell it.

The bonus for selling the box would be around 100 to 500 energy credits and minerals. However, opening the box gives eternal bonuses to your main race. In this case, the best option is to open the box.
