    4. Question of the week – wtf is this???
      What are we looking at?
      What’s happening here?
      What do you think we have to look forward to from this teaser?
      1. HappyMoonMonkey
        Is “the thing” bobbing because it’s on legs. Or is it just floating like a revenant?
      2. Epaphus
        I suspect it’s Thargoid Barnacle Matrix sites. My first thought on those site were that they’re titans, after this I’m not so sure. The yellow little Stargoid shooting up from ground looks interesting, I wonder what that could be doing🤔Can’t wait to poke around these sites
      3. DJ wylie
        I’m not really sure what this is teasing.  It doesn’t give much away.  Is it a revenant with two headlights?
      4. MV Coehoorn
        The second growth stage of the Thargoid Barnacle Matrix sites, including some new thingies to scan and a Thargoid Hover-SRV 😉
        Hopefully a little gameplay loop like the Guardian structure puzzle will be included.
      5. Zellith
        It’s the Bolivian Navy on manoeuvres in the South Pacific.
      6. Cylus Resi
        Hopefully a new site to scan explore and ***checks personal notes*** encounter on-foot Thargoid contacts that hand us the directions to Raxxla? I live in hope.
      7. STOFA
        It’s obviously a Thargoid Halloween parade…
      8. Phoenix Dfire
        It’s the Thargoid organic repurpose matrix (TORM). It takes all those humans and changes them into Thargoid  foot soldiers ( Think of the protomolecule from the expanse). I’m hoping they will be under the command of a Thargoid master, which if you manage to take down, all the humans wake up. Talk about trauma!
      9. MK Vimes
        “Transmission Received”
        But who from?
        If it is a transmission from a recon unit then I guess that we are going to come up against a new type of planet based Thargoid drone or combat vehicle.
        Is it too much to hope that the communication came from the Thargoids themselves?  And that we have reached, at the very least, the beginning of the end of this conflict?
      10. Chebs Will
        Landable ammonia worlds and loads of permit locked worlds opened. Oh and the vid is the thargoid equivalent of Birmingham, bring your body armour.
