    I was battling a boss (I'm not sure its name, but he is the guy in the mech suit who you need to kill to unlock gun mods). My power went out in the middle of the fight. When I joined back, I was orbiting a "starter" world, and I had none of my bookmarked planets. All of my teleport bookmarks were gone as well. I got back to the space hub, and all of my progress was wiped there as well. My character and ship are fine, as well my quest progress.

    Is there anyway I can fix this or revert my progress? I've spent 40+ hours playing this game in the last week, and all of my work seems lost.

    Same thing just happened to me, really disappointed that such a huge bug would make it through release...

    Yeah this is a common issue happening to people. If you quit/crash/BSOD/power outage or whatever while it's overwriting your universe files, they will become corrupted and end in .fail. It treats your character as new, drops you off at a random gentle star and your main mission progress is reset.

    the GOOD news is that you can recover your bookmarks by hunting through your files.

    The BAD news is that your progress is permanently lost and you need to redo all main missions and re-unlock the outpost shops etc. Starbound staff still hasn't addressed this issue and I wish they would. This happened to me and my husband and many others. :(
