|A Tale of a Mirioman|
Log Entry 0001
Greetings. I'm known as Loen,on my planet. I'm a Mirioman, and I come from the planet Mirion.
I'm a guard at the town on Holduhk. One day, a bright flash in the night appeared. it looked like a star came straight down from space, about 47 klukrits away. (that's 14 miles, for you earthlings.)
None dared to go see what it was, however about 2 hours later, something moving at incredible speed just flew through our town!
We were all gripped with fear at the blinding object.
It stopped, and approached the town slowly. It was almost like he was channel surfing, and decided to go back to a diffrent channel. He had a strange suit, and he looked alien. As he came close, I approached him. He spoke some stranged language, however out of nowhere, my father hit him over the head with a Mining Cruczel. (shovel like instrument.)
He went down hard, and his helm flew off. I picked up the helm, and looked in it.
It looked like it would fit, all kinds of writings showed up.
The second I put on the helmet, something penetrated my ear and into my brain. There were strange symbols. I tried to pull the thing off, but it wouldn'y budge. after a moment or two, I felt dazed and things were out of focus.
suddenly I head started to hurt, but I could read the words on the screen before me.
My relatives dragged the strange intruder into a the Grudah Flik (community hall)
there, they stripped him, and argued about his things. My grand father came in with an incindiary device, and burned the body to a crisp. I felt ashamed that we have done so.
A horrific looking being he was, but deserving of our justice? I think not.
I began to activate things of the helm, and read something about a felishan space ship called the Stardrifter.
I clicked something on and I suddenly noticed a white beam of light out the window. It was an amazing sight. Standing verticaly like a tree, going up and up and up, like it had no end! I tried to put on the outfit this "Felishan" had. But it did not fit that well. but when I pressed a button on it, it conformed to my body like magic! I decided to venture out into the mountains and find the contact point of this beam of light. However father forbid it. In either case I went out a few hektims, (yards or so... not exact distance.) However the Dukk (sun) was setting.
The following morning the sky was empty still of clouds. we hardly get any on Mirion, but that day before sure was cloudy. I decided to sneak out early in the morning and find the contact point of that beam of light. It was just beyond the mountains, I figured it wouldn't take me a long time to get there.
The alien suit was remarkable! I took a step and it propelled me forward even more, it was then that I noticed a computing pad on the wrist of the suit. I tried pressing a button and I was rocketed up into the air! I freaked. However I soon came hurdling back to the ground, and to my amazement, I didn't break my legs. I saw a button that said "FWD" and I pressed it, at which point numbers popped up on the screen. I pressed 5, and The pack on my back proppeled me farward at amazing speed. I looked down, and my legs were not even touching the ground.
I aproached a mountain, and this amazing suit just lifted me up along the smooth, yet rocky surface. I passed the Kulik Mine (Gold)
As I zoomed along, I reached the top of mount Kamil
The view was extraordinary! Only the few expert climbers have been up here. It was incredible.
I saw a bright object on the ground far, far way, it appeared the light was emminating from it. It was not much further now...
I pressed 6, and the suit pushed me fast down the mountain. I closed in on thelight, not far now.
I gasped at the sight of the spherical object.
As I neared it, It was breathaking. Windows all around, I could see right through it. It had no door however, nor any instrument that I could see. I had no Idea what to do.
I wondered how much it weighed, is it salvageble, does it contain the mysteries from which it came. Where did it come from? Why did it come here? What's it made of?
dozens of questions rumbled my mind as I stared at it, like a child staring at the equnax eclipse.
After taking some thought, I decided it would be safe to the touch it, in this suit.
I approached it, and reached out my hand.
As I touched the smooth glass like surface, that very second my hand went right through it!!! Astonishing to say the least. I pulled my hand out of there before I could say "Dukk is falling"
I marveled at the intelligence behind all this.
Withought a thought or will, I pushed my body into the sphere out of sheer excitement
Suddenly, the transperant craft lifted off the ground. I rocketed straight up into the sky, without a sound.
My twin hearts raced as I looked out onto the horizon.
A feeling of being kidnapped came over me. I was afraid to what would happen next.
It went up, and up.
Suddenly I passed the atmospheric surface ceiling, and as I looked up, I noticed a blue rectangle hanging in the space above. The craft I was in slowed down as it aproached that strange blue object.
What was going to happen? Are there beings from other worlds up there? will they experiment on me? torture me? or even kill me!?
I got the feeling that my curiosity was going to kill me.
Why oh why didn't I take the blue... umm,.. I mean, I should have listened to my father.
The Sphere I was in, docked with the blue object.
I got a subben sense of weightlessness, but it passed as the sphere opened up like an onion.
System Reset? I wonder what that ment.
... Quiet... Too quiet...
I looked around, but noone was around.
No pilot seat or anything. Just an empty box with some windows.
I noticed a control panel on my right, and I walked tawards it. I was amazed I understood the writings.
After fiddling with it for a couple of minutes, I stumbled on a flight log.
It was there that I read that a help signal was sent out.
I dove deeper into the logs and discovered that a strange object was sighted, that it fired upon this ship, and though this ship fired it's weapon in defense it did nothing to that other ship.
I read on and found out that a being entered the Star Drifter..
Hmm.. I thought for a moment and speculated that this is a Star Drifter.
The log ended abruptly after that. I noticed a sound recording at the bottom of the log, but when I tried to play it, the machine popped out a message that it was encrypted and locked and it required a voice activated key.
I looked around to see whatalse is about.
I realised that the landing craft was also used as a window to see above and below. After all it did fan out and positioned itself in that place.
I was amazed at the technological force behind it all. As I aproached the center of the ship, it appeared there was a hole, and I was afraid to get near it so that I won't fall out. I stretched my body and looked down in the hole.
Suddenly, a burst of air has lifted me up and above!
and as one of my hearts nearly had a stroke, I managed to balance my self and land on my knees, appearently on the roof of the star drifter!
Air? I was under the impression that there's no air in space, according to our own science. I guess we were wrong.
I stood up and looked around.
Wow, I was spellbound at the beauty of space from up here.
a feeling of loneliness came over me, and I wanted to go home. I looked at the big sphere in the sky, and realized, our science is wrong.
So very wrong.
I looked around and shock came upon me.
What I saw next was worst then seeing the incinerated body of the visitor to our planet.
Not the same as the one that was on the surface.
This one had triangle ears, and a tail... I aproached it with great care.
He looked similar to one of the creatures on our planet.
He.. or she, has been dead for a while. The bloody fluid has coagulated all around.
I found a mark on his front right limb. a letter F.
Could this be a Felisian? or was it the other one?
I felt scared and confused. But mostly worried.
Worried that more of these "ships" will come looking for these creatures.
I aproached the glassy dome, a section opened and I jumped back in.
I aproached the main big window and letters started to appear.

|I like it! Fun idea, and nice photographs. Already looking forward to episode 2. Well done! |
Oh, one thing; not to put a fine point on it, but it's "Felisian" or "Felysian", whichever you prefer.
Poor Felysian though, your relatives are certainly not the friendliest bunch of otherwordlers, eh? o.o
Welcome to the forums, by the way.

|A felisian? No. From the initial description it was probably a Suricrasian 'Cube-Class' clipper. Those pesky lil' things are typically launched at FTV speeds by Suricrasian Cubes. Probably salvaged or captured a Stardrifter with it too. As any Fenian would tell you, it's perfectly okay to bop a Suricrasian on the head with a shovel. Not sure about the incineration though... all this is non-canon and not to be taken seriously. Unless you're Suricrasian|
Anyway, a rather interesting project so far, I quite like how you used your screenshots and interpreted that planet surface too.
|Thank you all, part 2 coming very soon.|
|The part 2 of log entry 001 is out now, and added to the first entry. Check it out!|
