Vega 7

What explorers found on Vega 7 was strong evidence of a past alien civilisation. This society was long since extinct by the time the Salvation Fleet arrived at the planet, but when it was in its prime it worshipped the Black Hole (unknowingly, the Fear entity: Vastness of Space) as a god. Vastness was quite happy with this, and encouraged the religion and the cult, converting people to its cause. However, it got quite upset when Science (portrayed as Magic in the writings of the people) advanced considerably to begin to question how exactly the Black Hole was giving them such boons. It got angry, and started having people disappear, until all that remained were soulless beings which it took all in one go as its own.

The aliens did have Biotechnological secrets hidden in their writings, but unfortunately the planet was destroyed one turn before players would have been able to access this information.

Video logs from Cpt. Avril-Dubois

These logs were released on probes for use of humanity by the Captain of the UCSS Triumphant – filmed by Hanae, OURPGSoc alumnus over in the States!
