Explorations of the Cosmic Frontier
Enroute to N’Ganti III, Tequila Sally was attacked by a band of pirates. Rather than jettisoning her cargo, Capt K’Kraz ordered the crew to fight off the pirates and try to outrun them to the safety of the local starbase. While Sally valiantly fought against the pirates, she was ultimately destroyed- but not before taking down 2 of the fighters and severly damaging a third ship.
One of the ships passengers, ‘Connor Blake’, stole the ships boat Mezcal and fled mid battle towards the surface of the planet. The party managed to make it to a life boat which crashed on the surface of the planet. While some crewmembers were lucky enough to also make it to life boats and were rescued by the space station, others were not, and are presumed dead, including Captain K’Kraz.
On the surface of N’Ganti III, the party found the planet to be largely a barren wasteland, eventually making it to the small town of Titan’s Prospect, which they liberated from another band of pirate scum. After describing their journey across the surface, the local Chief Operations Officer of Titan Terraforming hired the crew to help survey the path they took to help explain some anomalies they’d uncovered. The crew found a hidden science base, along with the missing ships boat Mezcal. In the base they discovered numerous large insectoids, Connor Blake (whom they rescued), a large alien artifact, and the psychic after images of a Zhodani strike team that had died while attacking the base. With their combined rewards, and 3 (!!!) small vessels they’d ‘liberated’ the crew was able to make a sizable down payment on a new ship.
