Alien Artifacts are a type of Cargo consisting of unusual or exotic wares of high value that defy categorisation.
They can be purchased from Traders, in particular the Gem Slugs; Harvested from Plants grown on the Bio deck in a cold and dry climate; or, once Researched, manufactured in a Factory. The Turakken highly value these and will purchase them at a high price.
They are used on the Station to stock Curiosity Shops.
More unusual or exotic wares that defy categorisation are often packaged under this general term. Due to its rarity, this cargo type can often command high prices in the Galactic market place.

- Note: unlike other items, researchers will not automatically research improvements of Alien artifacts, they will only do so when provided with crates on the Analyser.
