->PLAYING AUDIO FILE
" Well, I've been flying around the Edge Worlds for some time, and now I have enough credits to refit my ship's energy systems to higher, more sophisticated levels. I would do that...if the standard-issue componets in question weren't bolted to the floor. So instead I paid a visit to Orbital's Luxury Liner Hawaii in Sigma-19. I needed a nice long rest, and since the liner is the most famous resort in Sirius, I plotted a course for Sigma-19 without hesitation."

It was difficult for me to walk past one of my worst enemies without plugging his head with my trusty Shredder.

This one seemed different from the rest, and seemed have a soft glow like moonlight. I checked it out and then made my way to my ship, artifact in hand. I then set course for the Sigma-13 Jump Hole in the nearby Crow Nebula cloud. After entering the Jump Hole, I decided to get some shut-eye. I set the artifact on a nightstand and laid down for a nap. All of the lights went out..."
"Except for one, softly glowing light..."
