On a Beam of Light - Exploring New Worlds by 


*The Pirate vessel “Sibelius” above a city of the Others, in Galaxy 6.
A dead city covered with dust, just waiting to be explored/looted.

I must explain how they got here……….

The Grantrisss are a inquisitive race, but not very intelligent, they travel the cosmos picking up flotsam & jetsam, things long discarded by other races.

They take what they find and then sell it at the Galactic Recycling Depot on Grayling V.

But some things were worth keeping, one such item was an antique pottery jug, it was also sealed with a tech ring of unknown origin.

Having tried over many years to decode the symbols and so find the password, they finally gave up, still it was an intriguing item, not something to throw away.

It eventually ended up with a human Trader Pirate, part of the booty from a derilict Grantrisss barge found drifting near Gablic II.
That was his story anyway!

Traders Pirates and their families live in space on their vessels & don’t spend much time in one place for obvious reasons!.

This Trader gave the jug to his daughter on her 10th birthday, that day arrived and she was presented with the jug, she lifted it out of the box and as soon as she touched it, dropped it and the top broke off.
( Out of the mouths of babes!! I guess onebody had thought of just breaking it)

Within an instant a hollo of a alien emanated from the jug, it was a message asking for assistance, from a planet in Galaxy 6.

Now everybeing knew Galaxy 6 was a fantasy,a myth, no being had ever found or visited it.

Legends said that within that space there was a nebula that held planets with cities filled with treasures.

Still, it was a myth, not real, but the message did say whoever answered would be rewarded handsomely.

Plus there was a chart.

And what pirate or trader could pass this up.

It was worth exploring.*

    You have such great stories to go with your fantastic artwork. Love the classic saucer ship and the foreground makes me wish for a 360 degree view.
