9*9 treasure rooms that can be docked with the station.

There is a 9*9 spot on current stations, that is currently used to launch Aux bases into lavaland.
What I am proposing would be to flip this on it's head. Use it as a landing port for a 9*9 room that is full of treasure/neat stuff, that can be sent back to the station, so everyone can enjoy the spoils.
This can be a reward at the end of a gateway mission, a reward for a particularly difficult lavaland boss, as well as randomly generated in space, only findable if the players are thorough or lucky.
Example treasure rooms could be a 9*9 room from the clown planet, coated in Bananium, with a variety of clown PDAs, spray flowers, and banana peels. A room with a working (and from a radioactivity perspective, quite leaky) nuclear reactor, found on the Russian station. A treasure vault full of gold bars, championship belts, and diamond walls. A prize from defeating Gluttony on Lavaland. You could also have a 9*9 room full of facehuggers and an alien queen, though that seems more like something that would require an admin action, rather then being on the RNG table.

It's at least better than the Aux Base, which is literally never used. People do love being shipped Gamer Gear...

This sounds exactly like something that will get abandoned because nobody will be willing to make new treasure rooms.
The rewards from such rooms should be considerable (but you also need to consider that it’s never going to be enough or it’s overpowered. it has to scale to population which isnt always feasible), otherwise going for this on a highpop round is downright idiotic. Say you killed a gateway or lavaland boss. To reciaim your loot you have to: go back through the gateway/shuttle to station, navigate hallways to where the Aux Base currently is, do it all before someone else takes every important item you’ve been interested in.

The only place where this makes sense are station goals. The reward is earned by station, therefore reward needs to be shared.

I kind of like the idea but something seems off. Maybe free gamer loot for the whole crew doesn't work if they don't have to earn it somehow.

what would be neat is if you could deploy the aux base in space if people wanted to use it as a foundation for a room

Good points. So as I see it there's 2 types of treasure rooms. There's ones you find in space, like a leaky reactor, or clown planet treasure vault. There's also treasure rooms in Lavaland from bosses with fixed locations. So behind Gluttony or Legion is a treasure room built into the map. At the center of the treasure room, you find a computer console in the center that locks in on the aux base. When the button is presssed, there's an announcement that a treasure room has locked onto the beacon, and will arrive in 90 seconds. The space explorer/miner gets a free ride home, and 90 seconds to pick the best loot if they haven't already.
The second would be keys that have a percentage chance of dropping from other megafauna. So Ash drake, Bubblegum, Colossus all have a percentage chance of dropping a unique key. This is brought back to the station, shaft miner turns the key, a different announcement is made "Pristine treasure room detected, will dock in 90 seconds". At this point there can be a real fight among assistants to get first dibs.

This would be great.
