Status Current Mission

For millions of years it was thought that this star was a Red Dwarf, a common class of star and with no detectable planet was considered to be low priority. Captain James Newmen, the Captain of the Nova Class Aurora, trying to save time on his mission, took a shortcut past the system and they were yanked in by the unexpected gravity of the Dyson net. The net has hidden the true nature of the G class star and the massive gravity of the net.

The USS Aurora falls into normal space with a subspace thump, their return to normal space was unexpected. Their port warp nacelle exploded moments later, and they were dragged down into the gravity well of a massive object. The crew had enough time to push a distress call before they entered into the atmosphere of one of the Earth sized platforms. With great skill, and just enough power the impeccable pilot brought the Aurora into a mostly controlled landing. The landing gear crumpled as she slid through the tall grass of a green meadow, coming to a stop several kilometres from touchdown.

Smoke drifted up from the remains of the port engine, the lowest two decks had compressed into a thick slab of twist metals. The animals that had fled from the crash started to return; human sized bipedal creatures, covered in downy feathers, approached out of curiosity. Any human child would have recognised these creatures and dinosaurs, specifically Utahraptors. Chirps and barks were exchanged among the pack of 30 or so animals. Tails used for balancing and agility stuck out straight behind powerful bodies. Four fingers tipped with sharp claws rested close to their bodies. Their toes end in equally sharp claws, and one large, curved claw on the outside of each foot. The pack approached the Aurora in a loose inverted V formation but stopped short a few dozen meters from the hull.

In the distance other animals kept their distance, each of these creatures were quadrupeds, long thick necks, massive bodies, and long tails and four thick legs.
