The elusive Thargoid alien race has finally been encountered in Elite Dangerous, marking humanities first contact with the race in the galaxy-spanning space sim.   

First contact has occurred with the Thargoid, a race which has previously only been seen in the form of ruins and other wreckages on certain worlds. Before now Frontier developments never confirmed that the race has a living presence in the world, though now it is clear that the race does exist in-game. 

Below is a video of the first contact event, where Xbox One player DP Sayre was pulled out of hyperspace by a mysterious force, which totally disabled his ship. Sayre's ship then helplessly tumbled through space, where not long after a gigantic flower-shaped spacecraft entered into view. This ship then scanned the human ship and escaped through a wormhole as the human ship rebooted its systems. 

 

 

While the developers of the game have laid down hints of the Thargoid within the game world, this event is completely unexpected, with hardcore fans of the series now repeating/recreating the event with their own ships. 

Right now it is unknown what this event will mean for the game, though it is likely that the new race will have a role to play in future expansions and other in-game events.
