Having terraformed “Great Blue”,Deri’s Androids started to explore nearby systems.
They were looking for a system that had a number of colonizable planets ,the main reason for this was to find a hunting and fishing preserve for Deri’s father.
This human,filled with goodness,with his wife and children led them out of slavery in the Andromeda Galaxy.To find a better place.
And they found such a system,it had 5 planets,all the planets were very wild,each had oceans,wetlands,plains,mountains which held a vast range of wildlife.
The one planet they chose for his home was very rugged,and looked just like where he had grown up on Earth,it even had a moon like Great Blue.
The forces from the moon had pulled and stretched the landscape into countless contorted shapes.
Deri’s father would live here for eternity,surrounded by his hunting and fishing buddies.And if at some point in time they decided to do other things,such as development,tourism,guiding,on the other planets in the system,then the ships known as Goonies would be there for their use.
The system was called Skeetsaway.
The first planet to be colonized was called Cratis Oregonius,the moon was given the name Hoods Moon.
Here we have night descending as Hoods rises over the Cascadia Mountains.
This is dedicated to Derid’s father.He as left this earth,and he waits for us on a distant world somewhere in a different future………………
In this rendering I used 2 of Derid’s images “Around Crater Lake” and “Blue Moon”
