Tarian is resting upon a tree thinking about how the colonization ship has overcome. First, there was the crash landing. Fortunately, no one had died, but there had been some minor injuries and even a couple of major ones. Though the livestock they had brought with them on the trip did not fair as well, they should be able to breed replacements for the ones that had died, while the dead ones were taken for provisions while they settled around the crashed ship.
Of course, as a result of the crash, some of the more delicate equipment had not survived the landing like the communications array as well as some of the medical equipment. And to make matters worse the parts that had broken would take time to replace of course they would have to find the raw materials first, and to date, they had not seen any of the needed materials.
He lifted his radio, one of the few that still worked and called into the base camp, “How are things back at home?”
“Same as before, we’re waiting for some fresh supplies. Have you had any luck on that front?”
Tarian took a small sip from his cantine before he looked other the other members of his little party. They were all busy categorizing the native animal and plant life, “Well we’re definitely finding the local wildlife but as far finding supplies I’m not so sure about that.”
“Rodger that, Tarian.”
“Have any of the other parties had more luck?” Tarian asked his voice overflowing with hope.
“At this point Tarian I think all the parties are having the same results as your group.” The voice said wryly.
With a sigh, Tarian responded to the man’s comment, “Yeah that’s what I thought. Alright, we’ll be back once we’ve finished the inventory of our sector.”
Tarian turned the volume down on the radio and took another look at the wildlife that his team was examining. Some of the animals he had seen looked just like what he was used to, while some like some of the wolves they had seen were almost as large as their surviving horses. And then there were those that seemed to be inspired by legends and myths. He had seen several animals that were a strange mixture of animals from their homeworld, yet the most memorable was the one that seemed to be a peculiar yet purposeful cross of an eagle and a lion.
