The Sword and the Star
An ice age world. The crew is familiar only with an equatorial subtropical island. They expected to find uninhabited lands, but instead encountered a deadly array of engineered fauna escaped from a facility created by Frontier Panstellar, an interplanetary corporation, for genetic experimentation. They currently seek to acquire the genetic data here, and perhaps also confront NAUTILUS, the experiment-gone-awry that caused this disaster. Bluejay, a gen-enged soldier, pursues them in incredible speed and animal cunning. Mother lurks in the shadows.
