Chapter I: Scavengers
And so we had finally found her. Hidden just on the other side of the Rufus debris field*. Argo, the capital ship of the Thessalian army - their jewel. Thessalians would have been wiped out much earlier without her - their uprising against the Central System Alliance lasted for 10 years and this battle vessel shot down more than 50 CSA battleships, countless fighters and some say that it even destroyed one Star Dreadnaught - a flying fortress.
Lost for more than 300 years - she seemed as she was just waiting for us to get looted. What we didn't know, though, was the reason, why it was 'hidden' in this forgotten dying system. I wish we'd never discovered it...
*Rufus was one of the 3 moons orbiting a planet Sinia14 - the closest one to the dying sun in the system D-11-08. It was deystroyed by the gravitational forces of the sun and the planet about 800 years ago. The remnants are called the 'Rufus debris field'.
Vivid colors - thats the mark of my 'Far Beyond' series. Don't worry - it won't be my major theme for my next space art pieces but every once in a while you'll experience a new chapter.
EDIT: Not SO vivid
