Posted by Gamemaster Wookius Furrius (Gamemaster) in Mail Sim - Bridge - Craxus II
The Craxus system was one well inside Federation space. It sported six worlds. Two were twin worlds, orbiting about one another in a wider orbit around the sun at a distance akin to Mercury. The next world is Craxus, a water world where 93% of the surface was covered in water. Chains of islands, mountaintops or volcanoes - active - spotted about the tectonic ridges like a bizarre connect the dots game. The largest such chain formed four large islands that took up 3% of the land space. Beyond this world were the ‘broken worlds’ - two large ice worlds that had at one time collided and which still sprouted space bergs in its deadly dance about the sun. The last was a lonely world, more like a moon that perhaps had escaped from the ice worlds that ran an erratic orbit about the sun.
Craxus II had a condition known as ‘ice fall’ which was at a time in its orbit - more like a season - where shards from the two ice worlds intersected the orbit and crashed down onto the world, sporting storms, tidal waves and attracting a whole variety of people - prospectors, thrill seekers, scientists and more. The system that the Endeavor came into was certainly crowded with 19 vessels of varying sizes - all of them civilian. But then Craxus II was open to such .. tourism.
Ang sat at her engineering post on the bridge and sighed. They were finally entering the system, shortly, and she sat up to begin checks to make sure everything was good to go. She double checked their eta at current warp speed so she could inform the Captain.
