    #15 [April 3303] CoR help solve the penultimate clue to the Formidine Rift mystery

    CHILDREN OF RAXXLA - INTELLIGENCE TEAM DISCOVERY REPORT


    Deciphering Method

    • Combined work of Commanders Jackie Silver, Lyrae Cursorius, EfilOne and Sajime Chent-Shi


    The GalNet clues lead us to the following :

    Styx
    Rhea
    Yildun
    Eurydice
    Rhamnousia
    Bellerophon
    Epione
    Eurycleia
    Amphithea
    Cronus
    Daedalion
    Chione
    Iapetus
    Anticlea
    Aeolus
    Erebus
    Jupiter
    Xanthus
    Furies
    Cassiopeia
    0


    Taking each starting letters, we then get :

    SRYERBEEACDCIAAEJXFC0

    "REBECCA" is cancelled out, leaving us with "SYREADIAEJXFC0", which is : Syreadiae JX-F c0.

    Zurara Ship Log Entry - 1/4
    01/10/3270

    RECORDING

    We managed to overpower the invaders. but not before
    they took out the main reactor. We're dead in space. with
    twenty minutes of life support left. Didn't get nothing out
    of them before they died, but clearly it was all planned.
    They took a drug which killed them. Doc says it's
    nicknamed 'Hexedit'. First it kills your memories, then it
    kills you. Neat and tidy.

    So we're dead, just waiting for the end. This will be the last
    log from the Zurara. Some of the crew have already killed
    themselves. Others are praying to whatever deity they
    believe might help them. A few are drinking themselves
    into oblivion. I don't know what will get us first the lack of
    oxygen or the cold. Battery power is about to die.

    RESUME

    Me? I'm leaving this log. This far out I doubt anyone will
    ever hear it, but well, what the hell?

    We all signed up for the promise of big payouts, a year of
    your life in exchange for enough to retire on. I guess I
    should have looked closer at it, but you would have
    probably done the same, right? No need to work again.
    What's clear now is whoever was behind this mission
    never intended for any of us to come back.

    Damn, it's cold in here now.

    Zurara Ship Log Entry - 3/4
    01/10/3270

    RESUME

    The folks managing the cargo, jees, they were all psychos.
    The moment we completed the mission they just
    'snapped'. Killed the ship and killed themselves. Some
    kind Of mental conditioning. Doc said. We tried to get word
    out to the other vessels when we found out. We got a
    signal out. but I don't know if anyone received it. It will
    probably freak them out. I don't think they know we're
    here.

    We dropped a series of beacons out here, all targeted
    around Earth-like or terraformable worlds We prepped
    some of the terraform candidates with seeders and
    biofilters. No one can figure out why it was necessary. but
    that was the mission. Just as we were turning back...
    boom, those cargo-handlers went nuts.

    RESUME

    So that's it. We don't even know why we've been killed. But
    someone out there knows. someone out there has blood
    on their hands, a lot of it. If you figure it out. give them a
    message from us. You know what I mean.

    Funny. We were told there was something bad out here,
    that it was haunted by ghosts...

    I just never figured it would be us doing the haunting...

    So this is what they were hiding. I'm leaving the old logs
    for reference. I might need to come back this way again
    and re-educate myself. Chances are my memory will get
    zapped again. If I don't make it I'll have to leave clues for
    others to follow. So, if you're reading this and you're not
    me, here's the deal...

    Zurara Ship Log - Additional Log Entry - 21/08/3273

    RESUME

    Found this ship. Took me years. This is the evidence.
    Nothing inside but void-frozen cadavers, perfectly
    preserved, some with drinks still in their hands. But the
    log. They sent these poor souls out here because they
    needed waypoints. all prepped for every eventuality. Three
    different zones it would seem.

    Zurara Ship Log - Additional Log Entry - 21/08/3273

    RESUME

    There's a conspiracy. Guess you figured that out already,
    but it goes way up, way beyond the Feds, the Imps and the
    Alliance. Something is coming, don't know what it is. but
    it's bad and it's all being hidden. All this weird stuff far out
    in the void? It's some kind of contingency plan. The
    answer to why and who is back in the core, not out here.
    That's where I'm going next Wish me luck.

    R.
