I stopped by a planet on my way to the Galactic Hub to drop a signal booster to check my coordinates. When I got out of my ship I noticed it was labeled a "Paradise Planet". I had never noticed these planet type labels before so I decided to explore and came across an abandoned building.
Apparently the previous occupants thought it would be a good idea to try to capture a drone for study using an experimental dimensional-warping process and it backfired on them
The last part says, "The machines co-opted the warp-tech and turned it upon us. In the horror of it all, our flesh was merged with their metal. Our questions were finally answered."
It seems to fit. This was a group with a thirst for knowledge who due to a failed experiment became mechanical beings. Also their being born of the sentinels could be the reason for their reverence of them.
Just after the Pathfinder update I also saw a couple of abandoned buildings that spoke of a race of beings that had either merged with or been altered by shards of glass. I took this to be more foreshadowing of a possible new race. I wish I had had the presence of mind to do screen grabs for those. I may start a new Normal Mode on another profile (or maybe even give Creative Mode a try on my main since I have never tried it) and see if I can find them again.
-"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." - Robert A. Heinlein
/spoilers/ Some enterprising player with a lot of time (or OCD) has collected the text of the abandoned buildings, which has the traveler's perspective on what has happened (the "long dead traveler" in the text is you). nomanssky.gamepedia.com/Abandoned_Buildings Hope this helps...
