The player meets a receptionist at Phobos to obtain a new ship.
The receptionist at Phobos is a blonde-haired human female assigned to the Science division of Star Command. Her name, rank, and other details are currently unknown. Upon the player opting to choose a new vessel, she warns that there have been reports of a possible time-irregularity in the galaxy, foreshadowing the chance to replay the game at an increased difficulty.
She is initially brusque at the player's unscheduled arrival but is interrupted by an incoming transmission from Admiral Weber. After speaking to the admiral she welcomes the player to the shipyards and offers a choice of several ship types.
