Civilian Finds and Claims in the Imperium

So I've been wondering about this for a while: what happens when a Free Trader crew comes across a aged pyramid, a Detached Duty Scout finds a new lifeform when not on a Detached Duty mission, a Mercenary crew uses an asteroid as a recon base and finds evidence of a forgotten civilization? What happens if a Noble and her retinue find evidence of an incoming incursion into Imperial Space? Or a Safari expedition finds a crashed ship?

Does the Imperium say thanks and that's it? Or is there a substantial reward by the Imperial government for their efforts?

Here are 20 examples of Finds or Claims a starship crew can file. In some cases, there may not be time to investigate fully, and only a Location Report can be made. If you have any recommendations for Monetary Rewards, please post them in the Comments section.

  2. Evidence of lost civilisations/artifacts/unknown lifeforms/uncharted settlement. Unless its an Ancients artifact doubtany IMperial interested.
    Unregistered sophont culture/spacial anomaly or hazard . Scouts interested if no-one else in the IMperium's structure.
    Location report of enemy action. Definite IMperial interest and reward - may just be a medal or noble title though. However sensor reading showing strength of enemy activity, definite large interest and rewards. ONCE players have been interrogated at length by IMperial Naval intelligence and enemy activity confirmed by Imperial armed forces or scouts.
