The crew of the GCS Penelope are helping capture two criminals that are been seen around the starbase GCS Templaria B who is in orbit around planet Templaria III. The criminals are captured, not without more than a little effort, Orto Purell de la Torre and Violet are placed under the custody of Judge Lovotz. Then, something happens:
2125.11AG An attempt by unknown operatives to destroy the GCS Templaria B starport orbiting the Planet Templaria III was avoided by members of the Star Law Frontier. At the same time, high ranking members of the Order of the Silver Light announced a change in their order’s hierarchy. Now the Purifiers will be the higher ranking members of the order.
Judge Lovotz recruited the assistance of the GCS Penelope and its crew to pursuit a escaping shuttle (The Detrol) with the terrorists that try to destroy GCS Templaria B. Two prisoners, Orto Purell de la Torre and a girl named Violet, were inside the ship and became part of the mission.
The pursuit continued until the GCS Penelope found that the pirate ship Hook had attacked and killed the terrorists… the still followed some clues to find out who these attackers were.
Searching the derelict ship, Judge Lovotz found evidence that pointed to a planet inside the Thuldan Empire sphere of influence, planet Tholia. Because the permits to enter the empire take a lot of time, Orto Purell de la Torre suggested entering the empire “using a back door” and a rumor that certain Etiran Baron has been caught by Star Law for visiting the same planet illegally.
A visit to planet Centauria on the Mana System and a diplomatic breakthrough by Violet, allowed Judge Lovotz and Captain Alexander Troy to speak to Baron Durin of Centauria and find out how he has entered the Thuldan Empire in his Spelljamer starship The Pegataur. They then travelled to a den of thieves floating in space inside a starship junkyard called Rat Hole and contacted an artificial named Now. For the right amount of credits a save route to Tholia was plotted and the GCS Penelope was on its way.
On planet Tholia the remains of a strange culture, with a strange crystal technology that was catalogued C-Tech, and that was completely obliterated from orbit by the fleet of the Thuldan Empire, was found.
C-Tech was also the technology used by the new enemies of the Galactic Concord named The Klicks. A very difficult to understand and detect by galactic concord technology. A machine that could be used to detect the technology was found and the crew of the GCS Penelope had to escape before they could be found by the soldiers of the Thuldan Empire.
Before leaving, Violet touched the crystal carcass of a dead Tholian and her Telephat Brain capture images of the tholian’s massacre including part of their language.
