STELLARIS ALIEN BOX GUIDE – WHAT’S INSIDE THE ORBITAL SPEED DEMON EVENT?
Stellaris has many events to watch, not least because they can be multistaged and multi-outcome. This guide will show you how to obtain the Alien Box opened from the Orbital Speed Demon event and select the right reward for you.
This reward is a choice of Alien Box Colour. It adds a permanent trait to your primary species making it an exceptional event.
It is important to note that the event rewards have changed with the planetary mechanic updates. While some of the old code remains, it is no longer valid. This means that you will not receive the trait replacements you might expect if the event was familiar.

This is a science ship event that offers a variety of options. The first and second, slow it down and attempt to stop it, respectively, will try to continue the event, while the third, Get out of it, will cancel it.
Alien Box Opened
Next, you have three options. You can choose Open the box and Learn more to start a spec total project. The learn option is not worth it as you will only be able to sell the box for very few credits and minerals quickly. It will also double the number of projects you can complete if the available vials.
You will receive Physics Research and a final project. After the project is complete, you will be able to choose between vials.
Alien Box Colors
It all comes down to your species’ needs, but we have found that any one of the vials can be used.
- Red– Adds social pheromones that decrease Pop Housing use by 5%
- Green: Increases Habitability by 5%
- Blue: Adds Limited Regeneration that increases Leader Lifespan of 10 years and decreases Army Damage by 10%
- Sell– Get some Minerals and Credits
