The Universe is never what you expect. As a child you look up and dream about being a captain of your own ship, traveling space hoping to meet other races and discovering the great riches that it offers. But reality is bitter and cold. You fight all your life to reach that place of command, you travel across the space ways to only transport cargo instead of Kings and Queens, but still its a clean life , till one day you finally come across that unknown alien you always dreamed of , instead of riches and light , you discover insanity and Darkness.I am Captain James Harken of the Deep space Freighter Keen Sprite . This distress pod contains all data of it crew and our travels for the last 6 months. I hope this will be transmitted to the familys of the 27 crewmen who well served this fine ship. But most important the attached file must be transmitted as soon as you are in range of any FedCom station or world. it is the last 12 hours of the Keen Sprite and crew. File Code OXen.22212.
