- Who are the Hunters?

- The Hunters were an ancient civilization who once populated the Celestial Body known to us as Odin, it is believed that due to their resistance to the high gravitational field found on Odin these being possessed what we would call super strength, they were a warrior race who's sole purpose was to locate and eradicate any enemy they found to pose a threat. Their presence has been a mystery up until recently, rare sightings of battleships have been found roaming the Nebula. It is uncertain at this time whether this is a direct response to us or to the Abominations, more research is required and more time to observe their behavior.

- One thing is for certain they are not to be taken lightly, however they do appear to hold special computer chips which contain knowledge of their ships technology. If these chips could be captured it is certain PAIOS could fabricate some sort of hybrid technology for us to use in our struggle.

- Who are the Abominations?

- Little is known about the Abominations, it is believed they cannot exist outside of the Nebula, one theory is their systems thrive on the gasses only present inside the Nebula. There has been little to no known research on these vessels due to their extremely aggressive and deadly nature.

- What is AIDR?

- AIDR is a remnant of the Hunters, Artificial Life, Combat Vessels used to test Hunter Ships prior to actual combat. When the Hunters left the Sector some of these test vessels were left behind, over the centuries these Drones found ways to replicate themselves and have followed their original programming searching for any credible threats.

- What is FPRI?

- FPRI or Floaty Potato Research Institute is a Research Department sent out to investigate the Celestial Body known as Odin, this institute is controlled by PAIOS or (Potato Artificial Intelligence Operating System) PAIOS is on the side of the Engineers and is working to assist them in their struggles.

- What is the Nebula?

- The Nebula appears to be an artificial gas pocket created around dense asteroids this produces radiation which soaks into the surrounding asteroid creating valuable resources we can use for Power. It is also the home of the Abominations who it is believed harness/thrive on this radiation and cannot survive without it.

- Who are we?

- We are space explorer's currently lost in time and space, we were heading out on a mission to explore unknown phenomenon, during our travels to distance planets, asteroid belts and star clusters many of the crew relaxed playing a game called DI, where engineers were stranded in the far reaches of space marooned on a desert like planet, with nothing but a landing craft and their engineering knowhow to rely on.

- What is the Lobby Ship?

- The lobby ship was our main vessel traversing the stars, we detected some anomalous readings and before we could react we were attacked, the ship survived but was left immobile.

- Why did we crash?

- The crash was inevitable following the sustained attacks on our ship by unknown forces, the Triborgs were the only survivable land masses in our ships trajectory which the ships computer input as destinations for all survival boats.

- Why are our Banana Boats so aids?

- The captain sounded the alarm and for everyone to abandon ship, the escape pods were launched but sustained damage from the unknown attackers. Many of them were lost in the decent through the nebula, those that survived crashed landed on 1 of 3 marked Moons named Triborg-Alpha/Triborg-Beta and Triborg-Gamma.

- As per company policy should any engineer fall victim to fatal circumstances their survival boat should be self-destructed. All vessels are fitted with fail safes to prevent the capture of our technology.


- Some of the survival boats were in the experimental stage and were dispatched partially incomplete, however the captain felt it was worth the risk given the inevitable destruction to be found by remaining on our exploration ship.

- What's our purpose?

- Our original purpose was to travel the stars exploring planets and anything worthy of study, unfortunately this changed following the attack on our ship. The new purpose of engineers is to survive, adapt, engineer their way out of this mess and hopefully find other survivors amongst the stars.

- We've also been given new purpose from our friendly FRPI, to capture and research alien technology, perhaps this can be used to help us escape and repair our ship.
