    Money is the root of ... Well everything .To the lowly worker it means food ,shelter, and with enough entertainment ! To the Corporations it means Power and there is never enough!!

    History Lesson. At the end of the 21st century Countries were replaced by Individual Corporations All with the intent of gaining a higher power position by Any Means necessary ! April 27 2125 War broke out ! It lasted 87 mins. After the smoke cleared The surviving Corporations formed an uneasy and wary Alliance. Times were desperate as natural resources were nearly exhausted And large portion of the earth left unlivable! In 2155 Jump drive was perfected opening up the galaxy for expansion . Each Corporation scrambled to lay claim to the choicest and most richly endowed planets. Some did better than others. A corporate Court was created to award claims and settlements amongst the Corporations. It worked apparently . But only for the richest of Corporations. The smaller, less well off had to settle for less Choice planets to find Profit in !!
    Enter the “Hakyur Corporation” and it’s newest settlement from the Courts. Dezmel 8. On the surface(and beneath it) quite possibly the most worthless hunk of rock spinning through the galaxy. The air is un-breathable, The ambient temperature Scalding . Highly acidic oceans . Monstrous storms . And a very poor mineral percentage at all test core drilling sites.
    However this is a true case of Lemons to Lemonade !!By accident while making an desperation geological survey of the ocean bottom an amazing thing was discovered ;Life. A truly amazingly profitable Life. These Echinoderm were reminiscent of earth’s own now extinct starfish. But Only Vaguely. Clad in rare minerals, Their shells were extremely valuable . Of course a few obstacles needed to be overcome. Acid spouts ,thermal vents. Crushing pressure. Then of course there was the reluctance of the bus sized creatures to having their shells ripped off. But when there is Money to be made, a way will be found.
    Acid impervious vehicles, powered dive armor, Floating command centers all very built for the one sole purpose. To harvest this priceless Bounty !! From the surface the Command centers finds, tracks, and coordinates the “Harvesting” Missions.....It also keeps constant vigil against “Claim jumpers “!! After all anything worth having is worth stealing !!
