The White Giant, shuttle of the Spaceship Copernicus, went to do a routine geological analysis of a planet and was downed within the first half hour by an electrical storm that the sensors hadn’t picked up.

How long have we got before the storm hits?

As the remnants of the crew picked themselves up to discover the bridge and it’s command staff had been blown apart they found themselves low on oxygen and without food. Parts of the shuttle were strewn across the planet and it was going to take careful preparation to avoid the deadly storms and find the provisions they so badly needed.

The weekend was one of careful allocation of resources and the horror of group decisions being those of life or death.

Can we make the explosion large enough to be seen but small enough to get a sample size?

There was no monster outside, only the electrical storms rendering the perceptions of those stuck on the planet somewhat unreliable.

Nineteen of the crew of the shuttle, The White Giant, survived the crash landing on the planet filled with electrical storms, of these only seventeen were still alive for pick up by the rescue shuttle, The Blue Midget.

One had been barely alive and the doctor judged better death by injection than an agonising one gasping for survival. One had been found out to be a simulant and was summarily executed after being used for his physical prowess by the mostly human crew.
