    The settling rights were cheap for this rock and your small party of colonists and engineers now know why. This is as far out as a USN ship has colonised in the past 150 years. Fleet has a minimal presence in this system.

    The old colonial dropship your team was assigned for this project looks like it was in a war zone for a century or two. You cruise across the red vista of 219 Harker and look for a place to set down.

    Once the Radar arrives we should make it our Priority to launch at least one LEO Communications satellite, to improve the quality of ground communications and allows us to send Tight beam data bursts back to USN command.

    My personal recommendation is 2 LEO communications birds, and one HAAM Weather Probe.

    LEO = Low Earth Orbit
    HAAM = High Altitude Atmospheric Monitor.

    The Rover skids to a stop on the dry, cracked bed of a depression just North of the camp. Stalvet peers intently at one of the scanner readouts.


    He takes a bite of a carrot and starts fiddling with the control panel.

    "I haven't seen this much Iron... ever. Looks like there's tin, magnesium, copper, hell, just about everything, in varying amounts."

    "Hey, Willis, you up? Get us coordinates on the incoming impact object, it's probably that cargo shipment, and those wafers ain't sittin so well in my gut, I wanna see what they dropped off for us."

    The star is dull, but growing brighter. It's falling through the atmosphere, but . . . something's amiss. It's going to slow. Inching across the horizon, drifting listlessly lower, and perhaps dangerously closer towards the new settlement.

    In a moment, it glows shockingly bright as it hits the upper atmosphere, and the air begins to burn. Soon, the fire around it begins to shrink as the object's speed slows. It continues to move ever closer towards the encampment.

    It moves faster than can be seen as it passes over the colony. Hardly more than a blur of dark metal(?) and followed by a rush of wind behind it.

    It slows and slows, until it's as if it were gliding. And then it stops in mid air. Little less than half a mile past the settlement, it hangs for a few moments several dozen feet above the ground, before slowly coming to a drop.

    Resting among the red dirt, a very old, and extremely damaged ship sits, its' armor torn in places, and the tip still slightly glowing and smoking.

    At the touch of a button, the Rover begins extending its drilling arm. The tough piece of machinery swings out to the side, and opens, revealing a large spool of cable, a rather large bit, and a lens. With a crack of thunder the mining laser fires, clearing a short path through the now-glowing rock. The drill descends.

    It's all black. He's at the controls of that bitch, and he's sitting there, next to a body that had long ago gone to bone. He didn't check the ID. He didn't want to know. He just wanted to be free of it. Free of it all. He was going home.

    The black hole was several light years away. The ship was headed straight towards it now. Soon it would be one with a singularity. It would be nothing more than an atom sized speck within an immense pool of nothingness. The idea appealed to him.

    He couldn't remember why, be he was running through the flight deck. Someone was chasing him? He heard foot steps. Loud ones. And laughter. Hard and sharp as a knife against stone. He was scared. Terrified, even. He was so ready for death, for oblivion, and yet he didn't want to die like this. Who was behind him? Who was the disembodied laugh? He couldn't remember?

    He was climbing down a shaft now. Sliding down long cables and jumping from support beam to support beam. He hit a landing badly and smacked his hip against cold steel. God damn it hurt. He couldn't believe it. It was easy to forget how old he was. He heard the man behind him. Above him. Coming closer. He shot blindly into the dark shaft above him and ran.

    He was in another ship now. He couldn't remember how he got there. He saw a glowing blue light out on the deck, near a fuel tank. His heart pounded. The shuttle they'd was beat to hell from their landing, but this one had been there for years. Their? That's right. He had come with him here. Together. He engaged power. The lights on the console flickered. "Come on! FUCK YOU, COME ON! NOT LIKE THIS!" He smacked his fist against the plastic case and something clicked. The engines fired. He lifted off the floor, saw the figure coming into the light, shaking a large jagged blade in the air in front of him. "I'm sorry, kid." He pressed down hard and the ship pulsed away, out the hangar bay and back through the energy field.

    He woke up in the seat of the chair, drifting through space. He could see the green glow that surrounded the Ulysses now, far off in the distance. He sat and wept.

    He covered the wound on his face with a bandage and cursed himself. He should have stayed on the bridge. He was twice a coward now. He hoped the ship would stay on course and end it's curse.

    He slipped into the cry chamber and closed his eyes.

    He woke suddenly. Disoriented. The lights in the shuttle were dimmer than he remembered. Maybe? He stood and stumbled. Got sick and puked on the floor. The screens were blank. Dead. He was in his suit already. He rubbed his face, wiping away at nothing he could find. He picked up his helmet, and opened the door. The sun(s?) were bright and blinded him. He stepped out sluggishly, and found his footing with trouble.

    He stood outside the ship, looking into the horizon. He walked.

    The crisis averted, Dr. Brown returned to the rover, and detached the core sample from the drilling apparatus. Placing it on a cart, he wheeled it over to the lab.

    After many hours of analysis, he confirmed his observation. The crust of planet Harker was abundant in organic compounds, and the Doctor's eyes blazed with excitement.

    If he could find a way to exploit this discovery by breaking down the organic molecules into more useful components (water, oxygen, carbon dioxide, methane, etc.) , he could solve the colony's water problem. It would also certainly help in the long-term transforming of the planet. Of course the question now was, how? And how to make it on a large enough scale to be useful. A microbe perhaps?

    I'll lead the sweep. I've just been unloading boxes, i'd like to get a look at the lay of the land and stretch my legs.

    Ah, excellent! I feel safer already.

    While we wait for the storage tanks, I'll get back to my research. I can either pursue my goal of terraforming the planet, or research environmental psychology in the hope of increasing hab unit occupancy limits. What do you guys thing?

    Make sure you do. I like my forms. Security detail eh? Let me just check quickly.
    Hmmm. It's tricky. According to USN Police Command I can only send volunteers to brand spanking new colonies like yours seeing as they have a tendancy to fail violently and often-times amusingly. Not that your death would be amusing. It would be less work for me though. So, I've put out the word around your sector but unless some local Constable feels like giving you a hand you're outta luck.
    Oh, and I picked up the unidentified person over by your new greenhouse - which you can thank yours-truly for.
    >> USN Scientist, Dr. Emmett Brown 02/27/11(Sun)07:00 No.14061175
    Damn it, power levels are marginal at best.

    Command, can we get a generator?
    >> USN Scientist, Dr. Emmett Brown 02/27/11(Sun)07:01 No.14061178
    Oh it's a very nice greenhouse, thank you!

    We've got a colonial marine here, hopefully he can take care of our unwelcome guest
    >> Colonial Handler 7-7-9 02/27/11(Sun)07:03 No.14061190
    Disregard my last, just noticed you have a security escort. I really should read your manifests. What the hell is the brass expecting out there?
    Well remember it next time doc. I had an ambulance ship set up and everything. Anyway,that's good news and I await the thirty minute reading session with eagerness.
    I'll see what I can do but it shouldn't be a problem.

    *** 2 water evaporation units have malfunctioned and are not functioning.

    Handler. Precaution. since Colony 88N was lost to those Bugs we get volunteered for a three month rotation on a new colony. Security.


    USNCommand, I've found something. Golf Romeo zero zero six, looks like a cable of some sort. leading to a box.
    Can I get a technician over here to look at this. it looks old.
    >> USN Scientist, Dr. Emmett Brown 02/27/11(Sun)07:10 No.14061220
    Dr. Brown's PDA flashes red with malfunction warnings. 2 of the vaporators had stopped functioning

    Well, with no engineers in sight, guess it's up to me. This brings me back to my university days! Should be fun
    >> Colonial Handler 7-7-9 02/27/11(Sun)07:13 No.14061234
    Oh yeah, the bug incident. Shitty luck on your planet, hey? Now, what's that about an old cable - we didn't send out any second hand gear for you guys.
    >> USN Marine CPL Craig Matejesavich 02/27/11(Sun)07:16 No.14061243
    Handler, its in the dirt, half buried, almost tripped on it. Its leading to some sort of box. Doesnt look like anything we placed here. I aint touching it. If you can spare one of the technicians or Xenosociologists to have a look send em over, otherwise i'll mark it here and continue the sweep.
    >> Colonial Handler 7-7-9 02/27/11(Sun)07:19 No.14061249
    Sorry, volunteers only, again. Unless someone's listening in and decides to stop lurking in the shadows I can't help you. Just carry on and hope I can find someone desperate enough to send out there,

    The sun is burning against his skin. He covers his eyes with his hand, and feels respite for a moment. He stands and feels his body ache and creak, no longer the body of a young man; not for years. He stumbles against the greenhouse and walks along it. "Just need some sleep," he mumbles to himself.

    (OOC )Schmidt ah good to see you back, will be online every sunday for a while. I will be making more assets every time so the list of things is growing that we can build. Once the USN universe if filled to the point of bursting with assets i'l release a Stratedgy pack for other people to host similar style games. should be cool once its done, but yeah, loads of assets to make before that happens.
