Rylan’s crew has finished their investigation of the Larian platforms. With dead platforms and an unresponsive storage device, they returned to the ship. While the initial tests proved fruitless, Rylan hoped that data might be recoverable.

Will he discover the answers for the devastation? Or will the death of an entire coalition of planets remain a mystery?
