Story

It is the year 2244. Interstellar space faring was establishes in 2140, with the invention of the Gravitation-Drives by the RSD Inc. First contact with friendly alien-races in the year 2199. The first interstellar trade route was established in the year 2204. The Earth-fleet consists of over 100.000 space vessels, including 5000 so-called “R&Ms” (R)escue and (M)aintenance ships. R&Ms are traveling along trade routes to ensure the functionality of military and civilian ships.

You are a level 4 technical engineer. You are on board the - RSS Tigermoth -, one of the smaller R&Ms ships. You destination is a damaged freighter which has come far away from his trade route. You are bound to repair or rescue this freighter and return it safely to the next outpost. This is where the Story begins....

You are technical engineer -Antony Jay Harty-.

You were born on the Moon in Moon-city 14. You are a very good engineer and you are proud to work for the RSD Inc. In your free time you are studying history books, you are very interested in ancient engineering techniques, and metal casting. You are married to your wife Helen and you have two beautiful kids named Jack and Jill. Your family lives in a agricultural base near Moon City 14. This is your last assignment on the Tigermoth before you are leaving for a vacation...

You are asleep as suddenly you hear the alarm sound.

You run into the control room - checking the flight log....

You see that you are far away from your course. The reason must be a black hole but the automatic course correction seemed to work properly. But the high gravity from the black hole has causes a coolant malfunction and it seems that the Tigermoth is lost. You run to the escape pod. Hoping that you will make it safely to a location suitable for humans.

You are really far away from your course and you get the bad feeling that you have entered a region which is only rarely explored. You know that this zone is called the “Forbidden Zone”, because most of the exploration crews have not return and those that have return tell stories about hostile planets and alien races. You have read a report from one of those crews and you remember about a planet which should fit for habitation. You memorize that because of the ugly name they gave the Planet. They call it the “Forbidden Planet” because there are hostile aliens and grotesque creatures. But this the only planet you can reach now...

After a short flight you managed to land on the planet. The landing was harsh and the escape pod is no longer able to fly. At least you saved some iron rations and water. But more important you saved a multi-tool, this is a steel-axe with a hammerhead on the opposite side.

It seems that you have finally arrived at the Forbidden Planet...
