The year was 3037. Humans had expanded their horizons far into the cosmos in their search for proof that they weren't alone in the universe. So far, they had been majorly unsuccessful- all they'd found were formerly-habitated planets reduced to nothing but ruins. Now desperate in their search for life, and with Earth swiftly descending into oblivion, the governments of the world had, for once, united in their goals. Four ships were sent out in four different directions, each ship carrying a cast of 200 diverse people at the peak of their lives.
Find a habitable planet, settle it, and build a warp gate to open up interstellar trading with Earth and the rest of the settlements.
Unfortunately, it would be even harder than anyone ever expected. And for one ship and its inhabitants, the adventure began rather suddenly.
The Moonbeam, or, professionally, 44588A, was a Nova-Class ship that was considered the best of its kind. Large but quick, strong yet supple, and with great mileage, it was by far the most celebrated of the four. And yet, it was the first to break. The unfortunate settlers' high hopes for a habitable and welcoming planet were dashed, when, on March 5th, 3040, three years into the voyage, the Moonbeam had some crippling malfunctions.
The Captain, a man by the name of Sir Ahab Kythe the Fifth, was woken from his cyro sleep as per company standard- but by then it was far too late. An oceanic planet loomed below, the surface of the dark waters growing closer with every passing second. He tried his best to overcome the mistake, but it was not to be. The gravitational pull was too strong, and, by then, the engine had already stopped. As the sickening blue of the planet below got closer and closer to the Moonbeam's front, Captain Kythe did all he could for the survivors- he directed the ship toward the only island in sight, set rendezvous coordinates, released the settlers from their three-year slumber, and activated the escape pods.
A resourceful man, but not one of the few that were lucky enough to survive.
The island they'd rendezvoused on was a terrifying place- full of creatures out for blood, and with little fresh water and edible plants. Even so, they were grateful for the relative safety offered by it- at least they weren't in the ocean. Radio transmissions from less fortunate escape pods proved the danger of straying into the murky waters, and even the terrors of the island were nothing compared to the reports of what lay beneath.
Now the remaining crew had to survive long enough for a rescue mission to be launched- or, more likely...to build the warp gate. And that would be the most difficult part of their lives to date- because the Moonbeam didn't hit the island, no...
It sunk into the deep.
