Artist's Description

Everything seemed normal. That is, if investigating a non-human artefact on your own, on an otherwise barren planet, light years from any possible help, is something you would call normal.

I wouldn’t say, ‘all in a days work’ for our unlikely explorer, but close.

In the flight recordings for this time Magnus tells us that the artefact remained dormant until the moment his XK119 moved within a 500 metre range.

He went on to say.
’Instantly the tower lit up, while simultaneously a beam of high energy instantly connected it to what I had though only moments before was a distant mountain top. Now I can see what appears to be another statue from the Earth Buddhist religion. The statue is glowing too.

I’m going to take a closer look at that mountain top. . .

Those were the last words recorded until Magnus and his XK119 returned to his Scout ship some 18 days later. The recording giving nothing but a quiet and soothing background hum for the entire 18 days.

There are no other records anywhere of those 18 days and it seems that Magnus told no one, as there are no other verifiable stories.

His ship records show him being in a different part of the Galaxy at the time and without any records the whereabouts of this planet and the artefacts, remain unknown.
