CAPTAIN'S LOG: Civil unrest continues on colony J45Z71 where local workers continue as the dictator scientist holds the entire planet within his sway. He continues his reign of terror unabated. Our away team has been missing for 48 planetary hours & the Emperor's finest marines are standing by as a last resort the mason cannons are charging for planetary bombardment!
|The planetary governor & his aid confronting a local priest|
The character's ship gets a distress call from the Caliph's Dream a ship that has been missing for more then 100 days out in the Lewton System. Lewton Major is an agro world of no small importance. The Dream was investigating the continuing civil unrest between the new colonists & original colonists. The colony produces close to three times the average for an agricultural world! The violence between the two factions was up sharply at the time of the Dream's investigation.
The Characters will be met by the governor of the colony & his attache. They will discuss the comes & goings of the quiet little colony & its production of sugar cane, etc.
They will report that the Caliph's Dream was hit by a meteor & crashed into a local moon & it was an unfortunate event. Since this is such a small colony there is very little in the way of a FTL communication's device. Actually this is true!
The party may recognize the man's body guard as being the Captain of the Dream!
