A distress call was a message or signal from an individual or group requesting assistance for a situation that individual or group could not handle. The distress call could be a general distress call, which meant it was broadcast without discretion or targeting another individual or group, or a targeted distress call, which meant it was broadcast to a certain individual or group. The goal of a distress call was to obtain the assistance the issuing individual or group needed.
