Location: Planet Noxar (Fleurdelys System)
Sector II - Deep Space Management HQ
The supervisor of Deep Space Management is working in his office when the intercom is activated.
Office secretary: ''Sir. Captain Blaze has arrived.''
Supervisor: ''Let her in please...
Nadia Blaze: ''You wanted to see me?''
Supervisor: ''You know I always want to see you my dear Nadia.''
Nadia smiles and the supervisor continues.
Supervisor: ''We have located a group of pirates in orbit around planet Mirage.''
Nadia Blaze: ''Pirates? On Mirage? What are they doing on that desert?''
Supervisor: ''We have been informed that there would be another artifact on the planet. The source of this information is not considered very reliable but we cannot risk that this artifact, if it exists, falls into the hands of the pirates. Because you did so well at the president's speech some time ago, you have been selected to get there, deal with the pirates and investigate.”
Nadia Blaze: ''That will be done sir.''
Nadia goes back to the Galaxy.
Nadia Blaze: ''Get everyone on board and prep the ship. We are leaving in thirty minutes.''
Worker: ''Yes ma'am!''
Science advisor:''I do not scan ships around Mirage but I am picking up a large quantity of debris floating in the higher orbit of the planet. It looks like the remains of a fleet.''
Officer: ''Taken down by pirates?''
Science advisor: ''I don't think so. I think this was the pirate fleet.”
Nadia Blaze: ''Good! We may not have to deal with pirates after all.''
Officer: ''I'd rather deal with pirates than with reptiles..''
Science advisor: ''Captain! I found an active beacon on the surface.''
Nadia Blaze: ''That will be a good place to start. Find a nearby landing site.''
