It was absolutely scary to see it happen like that. From the reports I've read on it, it is happening to people with a low, but regular frequency in certain areas. People have been searching them out and trying to interact in various ways. So far I've seen reports that scanning their wake gives you an error message and that if you open fire on them they turn red but still just jump away. No word I've found on cargo scanning or anything else yet.

It was scary but at the same time my mind was like "OMG IT'S HAPPENING"

What's interesting is Frontier mentioned that this stuff has possibly been in the game for awhile just no one discovered it yet. People have also been data-mining patches and not seen the alien ship in patches yet. What I'm thinking is this stuff has possibly been in the game but I deeply suspect that they also just flipped a switch or changed some code so that people would start running into them now. Course some also mentioned the crazy idea that with it's geometrical shape that maybe it's being procedurally generated each time and that's why no one saw a model in the code yet. I highly doubt this but it would be super cool if they pulled that off.

I agree on the "flipping a switch" thing. It can't have been there and active and available with no one finding it, then suddenly it is happening to a bunch of folks, repeatably for people who are seeking it out. I could buy a player-driven switch that somehow the players only just now attracted the Thargoids' attention, but considering we have no clue what they did that would have triggered the event, it is as good as the devs doing it.

The trigger might be the completion of the Colonia Community Goal.   This was an effort to have players help establish a "new bubble" out where Jaques Station ended up.   It could be that Frontier wants there to be two "Civilized Bubbles" so that the Thargoids can go to war with us in one of them, leaving the other as a safe place for players to hide.

Side note:  I do like how this Forbes article about the discovery describes Elite: Dangerous:

Elite Dangerous, otherwise known as the No Man’s Sky that’s actually good, or the Star Citizen that’s actually out, is making headlines for a rather cool reason as of last night.

The Kickstarter for the Elite: Dangerous tabletop RPG ends in 55 hours.  Just a PSA.

380,000£ worth of stretch goals, huh?

Can't fault them for being hopeful.

Big update is coming to Elite: Dangerous today. 

With the release of Update 2.3 (titled "The Commanders") Elite is adding the following long awaited features to the game (features in bold REQUIRE HORIZONS to enjoy).

  • Customized CMDR appearance through "Holo View" system (read as: create your character)
  • Ships with more than one seat in the cockpit can put another player in those seats now, allowing them to take up gunner or fighter helm roles.
  • You can now register the name of your ship. This also adds nameplates to your ships to display the ship name. (Exterior name-plate is a micro-transaction.  For $3 it gives you a set of different plates you can add to your ship and any future ship).
  • New vanity cameras allows for a full interface for looking around and inside your ship while flying to get better footage or screenshots.

You can read the full patch notes here.

I've attached both the official trailer and Elite Community community member and commentator Obsidian Ant's 12 minute summary of changes in the patch.

 If anyone would be interested in testing to see if both parties need Horizons to use multicrew, let me know.  I'd be willing to test that out but I need time to patch.

I'd be interested, though I need to patch too (haven't played in months)

This fan made trailer for Elite: Dangerous may be cooler/more engaging than any of the official ones...
