Undocumented Planet: Jarbadum System
I woke up in the destroyed wreckage of the Olympus, still strapped into the co-pilots seat. The windshield was mostly shattered, cracked in other places. Metal had been bent and warped into awkward positions. I groaned, undoing the buckles on the seat, pulling myself to my feet. A blizzard raged on outside, a white flurry so intense that I could feel its unforgiving anger even inside the comfort of my suit. I pressed a series of buttons on the side of the helmet, the plate covering the visor opening up and folding back neatly.
Looking back now at what was left of the Olympus, I realized the extent of the damage that had been done on the disheartening ship. The plating torn off in sections, wires hanging down, electronics broken. The still flickering lights told me that the port generator was still running at least. Lux, where was he? I had to find him. He wasn’t in the pilot’s seat. L

Lux’s ship was far more than just a cockpit, like what I was used to, but it went further back, opening up into a large control room, complete with a bed and even a kitchen. The interior of the ship contrasted the outside, with bright lights, and white walls. He sat at the helm, staring out into space, tense.
“Hey, you okay? You haven’t loosened up since we left the ship.” I asked. There was no response. “Hey Lux, what’s the matter?” He didn’t look at me, and yet still he spoke, quietly.
“I disobeyed orders, I’ve never done that before.” It was like a whisper, barely audible. I moved up to the cockpit, closer to him.
“Listen to me. If you want to be a Celestial, you have to do what you know is right, even if it means breaking the rules every once in a while.” He looked back at me, his

The year is 5028. Humans have spread across the galaxy finding homes among other species on different planets. Since Earth, the prior capital of Terran domination had been destroyed, the center of Terran trade and population became the Blackwater system, a host to many planets, such as the simple planet of Monteria, to the steel planet, Xenova.
Furelle: The Broken Planet
Our ship hovered currently over the broken planet, Furelle. Fifteen years, it had been destroyed by one of our soldiers, a Soulless God called Vodothan, yet despite this victory over the planetary “guardians” called Celestials, we had still lost a good number of troops, and one of them had killed Vodothan before managing to escape. We had gotten word that another Soulless God, Koratha, had been killed on Draenica, and the Celestials responsible had moved on to Furelle in hopes to find clues as to the whereabouts of others. The goal of my

Silence had been all over the ICU room when I entered after my superior's surgery and transfusion. His head was covered with bandages and peacefully lying on his bed. His dextrose tube was attached on his finger which it had served as his meal. I never realized that a strong man like him had turned into a living vegetable. Yet, it was a good thing that he had overcome death by those experimental treatments.
I sat on a chair beside him like any visitor who watched and took care of his or her sick loved one. It was my decision to excuse myself from all the tasks and activities. I never thought that about my teammates and colleagues got curious about this visitation. It was my responsibility to look after him.
Suddenly, someone just came into the room. It was a Russian nurse in his thirties who smiled at me. I turned my head when I was about to greet him.
" Miss Y, I am Agent RU," he said. " I'm going to take Gospodin
