This is related to the Here to Cassidine thread which is the set up for this adventure:

artifacts have been dredged up from the Sea floor of Faire that point to a lost eorna colony expedition form 900 years ago. The artifacts from such a find would be big money. There is a suggestion in the evidence that the eorna colony encountered the sathar thus this could be very important to look into this.

Alpha section is a KHs action with back tracking the lost eorna colony expedition on imperfect information.

Competitor team is in play and Sathar and their other bug allies (zuraquor) are in the area.

The original colony planet is there and the ruins are 900 years old, there is also a sathar oblelisk present. PCs will be able to poke around and discover evidence of a calamity that ruined the ecosystem from a lush one to one difficult to survive in: a rogue brown dwarf passing through the system. it changed the orbit of the inhabitable planet for 350 years the survivors held on but eventually were wiped out and sathar obelisk seems to have turned up after that time.

the haul in artifacts is not quite what the PCs were hoping for.
It would seem that the PCs were too late to find the survivors of the eorna colony expedition except for some nagging little clues that were found in the wrecked ship on Faire and also on the extinct colony suggesting that a portion of the colony excaped....

The mystery of this eorna colony is a rip off from Jack McDevitt's book the Seeker which is a very good read and I'm not telling what it is right now as you really ought to read the series. I like the twist and think its plausible enough so....
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!
