Pyramid, part 2
September 3rd, 0165AL (2021)
They watched the gate the best that they could from the pyramid, and soon a ship emerged from the gate, flew up and over the pyramid, and disappeared into the fog.
Major Zargolf: It's a GS-1? Brad?
Brad: It either was a GS-1 or some other civilization with the same type of ship.
Brian: For one, Daniel Jackson's people had puddle jumpers too, the al'Hasiq are sure to have them as well.
Lt. Black: So we don't have a clue who that was.
Major Zargolf: No. All we know is that they aren't interested in the pyramid, or us.
Major Zargolf: Brad, Lt. Black, keep scanning the area to see if the ship comes back, Brian and Laur, come with me.
Lt. Black: Yes, sir.
Major Zargolf, Brian, and Laur walked over to the hole and carefully made their way down the steps, scanning the area as they went.
The passage didn't go down very far, it ended in a small room near where the base of the pyramid would be. However, the room itself was far more interesting than the rest of the pyramid. For one, it had a door.
Brian: Not picking up much past the door, other than that there seem to be nothing dangerous in the room.
Major Zargolf: Now, how do we open the door?
Laur: It seems like it needs some sort of signal, similar to the al'Hasiq technology.
Major Zargolf: Brian, see if you can open it.
Brian walked over to the door, and everyone stood off to the side of the split in the door. Then Brian put his hand on the door, which caused it to shake, then slowly open up.
Laur: Interesting, could be Predecessor tech...
They entered the room to find that it wasn't much more interesting than the rest of the pyramid, other than a small, more advanced looking object at the other end of the room.
Brian: Only thing that really registers is whatever that thing is. As far as I can tell, nothing is dangerous.
Laur looked over the object, and soon found a round, dark yellow crystalline object.
Laur: Could that be a Predecessor power cell?
Brian: If it is, it's either dead or nearly so, because it's barely showing up on the scanner.
Laur: Are sure it is safe to remove it?
Laur pressed the object, which popped enough so it could be removed. Laur took it out of the other object... and nothing happened.
Major Zargolf: Okay, its time to head back, unless you've found anything else of interest here.
Laur: No, the object just seems to be a storage device, at most it was powering the door.
They passed though the still-open door and walked back up to the top of the pyramid.
Brian: We found what appears to be a Predecessor power cell, with seemingly a bit of power left.
Lt. Black stomped on something, and lifted up her foot to find the mushed remains of what seemed to be a large bug.
Brad: And Aubrey found a big bug. Anyway, could it be possible that this planet is the one Lauren mentioned?
Laur: I doubt it, it was supposedly "dead for ages, shielded for eternity," and this planet is neither.
Brad: So a free power cell?
Major Zargolf: Did that ship come back?
Lt. Black: No, we would have contacted you if it did.
Major Zargolf: Okay, lets move out.
Nick: The western part of that actual city part of Yintar, just to the east of Lamranu.
Nikki: Very hilly, too. I suggest you get your brakes checked before coming.
Nick: Especially in the winter.
Nikki: At least the developed area is flat.
Nikki: Down in the valley is the commercial area.
Nick: Odd, its up on top of the hills, too...
Nikki: With residential in between.
Nick: You can also see part of a cloverleaf interchange between M-3 and the M-3 loop around Yintar and Yanar.
Schulmanator: Hmmm... $20,000, or a nearly depleted Predecessor power cell?
Leech10: More info on the Galur colony? Isn't there anything else going on?
fabsies55: And that is one reason why I have city pics here.
Zelgadis: There's always the "spray and pray" method of weapon fire...
