The solar flares began and the show was a spectacular sight to behold. For days the party enjoyed some downtime and spent some CDP and recovered.
Loev Covis was invited to a dinner with the other Polarian Captains aboard the Polarian Alliance Starbase, While the Intrepid was undergoing some much-needed repairs. Engaging in talks about the Intrepids Non-Polarian captain, Loev found himself defending his captain’s integrity against the strong views of the Polarians Captains.
Meanwhile, aboard the Aurian Sunrise, the away team enjoyed festivities with their Felor Host. Popkiss noticed a member of the party taking great interest in the Captain, communicating with Ensign Harris on the Intrepid, together they identified the individual as a wanted criminal known as Captain Av’ril for illegal salvage. She sent a robot called KR-416 to invite the captain to join her for a drink. Captain Fang, obliged and she explained that she needed his help to leave the system. She needed a security pass to leave the system and said it was a matter of great urgency. When Fang pressed to the topic of the matter, Av’ril became evasive and invited him to her quarters.
Leaving the Party to join her in her quarters, she explained, asking if had ever heard of Dark Tech. Fang had not. She continued to explain that she had found a salvage in uncharted space in the system, part of a trail she is following. Within the salvage, she located the Dark Tech which is extremely evil and dangerous. Fang tried to reason with her, saying that the Polarian Alliance will help, she just needs to turn herself in and the tech over to them.
Av’ril refused to cooperate, stating that the Polarians will try to use the tech, and it will then corrupt everything. She believes that the tech came from the dead worlds beyond the frontier. Her expert is slowly analyzing it and is hopeful to find a way to destroy it. Nothing they have tried has worked so far.
Meanwhile, Dr Peridot decided to take the cadets on a camping trip to a nearby forest moon. Taking her shuttle she headed out with the cadets.
The solar flares continued and were magnificent to behold as they started to reach their climax. But as everyone watched on, a rogue meteor appeared and was struck by one of the flares and exploded sending a shock wave and meteor storm across the system.
The shower destroyed the fleet of civilian ships watching the show, tearing apart the large Aurian Sunrise which plummeted down onto the nearby forest moon. Everyone on board tried to strap in and prevent themselves from being sucked out into space, but all went dark as they crashed onto the moon.
Meanwhile, the shower struck the shuttle which also crashed onto the moon. While the shower tore apart the starbase as the captains raced back to their ships in an attempt for an emergency evac.
Fang, Popkiss, Bruuke and Kroom all woke in the wreckage, slightly injured. Smoke hung everywhere and after some time they managed to make it out of the wreckage and locate each other. They did a quick survey of their surroundings seeing a shuttle crash into a nearby mountain range decided to make it towards the ship. But first, they wanted to locate survivors.
Peridot found that the shuttle hung dangerously on the edge of a cliff hundreds of meters above the rocky floor.
But they were not alone, the forest moon, was an illegal genetic experimental hunting ground for Aurian hunters…
