The Proxima Incident
For Symphony Orchestra
Uploaded on Jan 5, 2018
August 24th, 2016. A day that humanity wishes to forget. Old-Earth Astronomers announced the discovery of a rocky world orbiting inside the habitable zone of Proxima Centauri. Years of speculation turned to decades, and decades to centuries. On the 150th anniversary of Proxima B's discovery, humanity launched its first probe capable of traveling faster than light, an event that was widely celebrated by the Earth's population.
In two months, blurry images began to appear at the Earth's scientific station on Diana, a trans-Netpunian planet in the Solar System. Early reports showed a nitrogen-oxygen atmosphere, and the blurry pictures showed what looked like possible civilizations on the surface. The probe transmitted its last message immediately before an impact with a small asteroid.
A year later, a tactical ship equipped with state-of-the-art weapons and warp drive departed from the space dock on Diana, and set course for Proxima B.
A month later, the ship arrived at its destination. Scans confirmed the probe's earlier readings, but scans of the area revealed no sign of the probe. Detailed scans located a city with the diameter of Mercury, but further scans could not locate any life signs.
The crew decided to make an expedition, and they landed their ship in the center of the city.
Once they leave the ship, they find the city completely empty. The explorers fan out to gather some more readings, but one by one they disappear.
The fifteen explorers wake to find themselves in a dark room, surrounded by bipedal aliens the size of gorillas. They need to escape, but will they?
