Weeks of interviews followed by months of training and finally 11 weeks of Space travel aboard the Idono Farigo brings you to Thompson's system, a binary system far beyond the spin-ward rim. You and the nearly 150 personnel are to do a detailed survey of Question, the third moon of Thompson A3. The flight was mostly uneventful only the occasional fight breaking out between the Yazirian and the Humma members of the expedition. The Idono Farigo is awash with activity as the various expedition teams begin their landing preparations. Tec teams begin the deployment of survey satellites. Mil-spec teams prepare for first landing and everyone else prepping their gear for their turn on a shuttle planetside. Suddenly the alarm claxons go off and the captain begins an announcement before being cut off by a massive explosion that rocks the ship throwing you to the deck. As you try to rise a second then a third explosion rocks the ship. The ships computer begins to broadcast over the ships comms as well as your personal comm, "CATASTROPHIC SYSTEM FAILURE, PROTOCOL 11C ENACTED, ALL PERSONNEL TO ABANDON SHIP, PLEASE CALMLY MAKE YOUR WAY TO THE NEAREST ESCAPE POD." you make it to an escape pod with 4 others when a fourth explosion blows the ship in half and your escape pod auto seals and launches you towards Question. Once clear of the wreckage of the Idono Farigo you can finally see the source of the explosions, a frigate and a dozen fighters. The fighters zip to and fro targeting the helpless escape pods as they descend and only by the purest luck your pod goes unnoticed. Unguided your pod crashed down in a heavily forested area and springs open the door.
