The group of heroes, comprised of Dialectic, Dr. Tomorrow, and Li-Rogg are attempting to flee Skrull space and return to the Milky Way Galaxy. Their stolen Skrull spaceship turned out to be a high-tech military grade ship. They approached the Space Warp and the station nearest to the world they escaped from, but the Skrulls were guarding the point and had a station built there.
Li-Rogg informed the team that they had approached the station because the ship did not have the maps they needed to make the trip to Earth and that Skrull ships were designed for FTL travel only through space warps.
As the group debated their actions, a group of Skrull warships snuck up on them. Panicked, the group made a decision that they weren’t fully prepared to deal with the consequences of. They made a run for the space warp and jumped blindly to wherever it would take them. The entrance to hyperspace was smooth, but the exit dropped the heroes in front within a few thousand miles of a star!
The crew valiently fought against the gravity of the star, but the ships engines couldn’t pull them away. As the ship started to tumble down to the moltent surface below, a tendril of flame burst out of the star with such force that it sent them careening away where they were thrust into the orbit of one of the star’s planets. They made an emergency landing/crashed into this ball of rock where they assessed the damage and found that their ship lay in near ruins.
Dialectic over the period of nearly two weeks was able to get the sensors barely operational, the engines operating at about 10% capacity, and, within a day or two of suffocation, the life support operating. Li-Rogg, decided that they needed to leave the planet despite the shape of the ship and hopes at further repairs, and performed lift-off, they piloted their ship to the nearby planet in the star’s habitable zone. The planet seemed to be a swamp with no inhabitants, but some strange anomalies.
The crew landed on a solidish piece of swampland and sent Li-Rogg out to investigate while Dialectic and Dr. Tomorrow worked on repairs. Li-Rogg discovered a monolithic stone that stood in the middle of the swamp giving off strange radio signals. He returned to the ship and reported his findings. While the crew discussed their next actions, a knock was heard on the ship’s door.
Upon opening the door, a large green swamp creature with enormous teeeth stood in the doorway. Dr. Tomorrow, taking it in stride of course, made a joke, which the alien replied with “You’re under arrest.” The alien, a Quonian named Rasq, worked for the QIA (Quonian Intelligence Agency). They had reports that aliens had landed on the planet and sent him to investigate. The group went to the Quonian city and talked to a chief investigator who questioned them, saw through their deceptions, then decided to help them along their way in the stolen Skrull vessel as a means to draw Skrull attention away from Quon. Rasq asked to go with the group and was given permission assuming he provided reports on Skrull movements and the likelihood of finding allies on Earth.
The Quonians, over a few days, helped the group get the ship into useable shape and provided some supplies, but the ship needed much more work. The Quonians also provided a database of maps for the group to pilot in the surrounding areas with. The crew took off and headed to the megalopolis planet Raxa III.
The crew journeyed to Raxa III and had a short run in with pirates that they easily evaded. They arrived and landed on Raxa III with the help of Li-Rogg’s connections and surprisingly vast fortune. Li-Rogg tells the group that he is headed off to acquire an ID number for the ship, since theirs no longer has one. Dialectic goes and looks for a mechanic to make the ship’s repairs, Rasq goes looks for the star charts that the team needs, and Dr. Tomorrow goes out to have some fun. It is while docking at Raxa III that the crew names their ship “The Visitor”.
While split up on Raxa III the crew has a number of adventures over a few days. Dialectic’s search for a mechanic takes him to the lowest, and most dangerous, levels of this enourmous city. Down there, he meets Mona T’zara when she helps him out of a jam with some local thugs. He decides to hire her to help him out with the ship. Rasq, accidentally, goes to some off the record cartographer that is a front for a cartel. As he is being ushered out the door, a shot member of the gang stumbles in. Rasq decides to try his luck at another place and is able to purchase maps there. Finally, Dr. Tomorrow has more than his share of adventures. Getting a job, looking through a museum, and hanging out at spaceport bars. He returns with the group and get the three of them to go to a seedy bar in the lower part of the city.
In this bar on the surface of the planet, there are a number of dangerous people. Pirates, thugs, and others are hanging around in there. Some paly a strange game that Dr. Tomorrow has never seen and he asks to play. He loses the game, having never played it before, and declares the other person a cheater. His intention was to start a fight, which he succeeded at. The fight ended with him facing down 20-30 men in a bar and his getting shot to death. Thankfully, immortality has its perks.
While Dr. Tomorrow recovers, little else of interest goes on till Li-Rogg shows up with the new ID number and tells them all he’s ready to go. Dialectic hires Mona T’zara to the crew and as they leave, they notice thousands of explosions. Dialectic focuses and can see bits of the cars, owned by the cartel, being blown to pieces. The same cars that Mona worked on.
