Coming in waves never seen before and beyond Hynerian scientists to either predict nor understand, massive hurricanes, like roving bands of wolves, made life untenable.

Life pod Bravo-Four-Zero, containing just four Hynerian couples, launched for territories unknown, a roll of the cosmic dice. A little unknown solar system, perhaps, just maybe, held a jewel of a planet capable of sustaining life. No time to plan, no time for research. Life in the balance. Non-believers converted like lemmings to the cliff.

Strapped in tight, eyes squeezed tight as if one’s lids were capable of resisting the unhynerian g-forces launch inflicted upon the crew. Five-four-three-two-GO.
