A guest, is the first available option "status" for a human who just crash-landed in an escape pod, before the colony has managed to build a prison due to early game stage. The character will use any bed assigned for medical purpose. After recovery, the character will start moving. In order to become part of the colony, s/he can be captured as prisoner and then recruited.
Visitors may fall down due to environmental events such as a heatwave, opening the opportunity to guest them as well. Stripping a visitor doesn't have a negative impact in foreign affairs. Once the guest recovers motion, s/he will start moving towards a map edge to return home. A message will pop-up saying: "Because (name) exited the map healthy, relations with (faction) have improved by 15."".
