The ship came out of Warpspace. The Keihlar, one of the pioneer class exploration vessels. It had everything. A full company of Space Marines, a Legion of Imperial Guardsmen as well as a full complement of scientists, .. (Correction) Adeptus Mechanicus terraformer specialists as well as (Those imperial judges, what were they called?). Its commander Varlec Hlastar stood in the Observatory as the Keihlar approached the sun.

The Tlerux system existed well beyond the furthest reaches of the Astronomicon. The rays of its light had yet to be observed from the terran astronomers, obscured by the gravitational forces of the numerous systems between it and Sol. Centuries ago after the Horus Heresy they say that a company of the Sons of Horus had been heading into this region of space. Would it be possible that they survived? Somehow thrived in these new unexplored stars?

Hlastar sat down. Lowered his head and considered the possibilities. With the Emperors blessing he hoped that this region of space could be brought before the will of the Imperium and purified. Perhaps a century from now the Emperors will could extend into this untamed world....

0450hrs. His commanders were to arrive. He waited.

strange feeling has awoken him. like something was not right around here. the kind of awakening that goes with heart thumping, blood rushing through your temples.
Hlastar raised his head from the dinning table and looked straight into handgun's barrel. he managed to blink just once before the needle shot from pistol pierced his eyeball and bored into grey matter. hallstar fell down from the bank and landed still on the stony floor.
tall, thin figure holstered the smoking weapon and and hid in the shadows of dinning room.

Silence.



So it seems the other commanders did not make it. Some agent had infiltrated the Keihlar and slew all the commanders. Some agent who did not want this region of space to be explored. The light of the Emperor was to be shaded from this system.


A series of explosions rang throughout the ship. Explosive devices that were planted on the interstellar warpdrives. The ships alarms rang as the ship clumsily veered towards the 5th planet in the Tlerux system.

Like a blue-white orb in the distance the planet glowed in the distance. The ship was crippled, leaving a trail of drive coolant, flames and fragments. The life support systems were devastated. All Escape pods were activated. Those who survived the bombs hastily clambered into the Escape pods. Just under 1000 personnel were evacuating.


Over 60 pods were activated. They descended upon the 5th planet.



How foolish... Of course the Saboteur would have considered such an outcome. The pods exploded. Some entirely, others partially ruptured and spiralled out of control. Some collided with each other. There would not be any survivors.

None? Even the most diligent make mistakes....
