Starts with you warping into a big nebula cloud to pick up a passenger from a starbase inside it. Then you warp out via despawning the whole system and spawning a warp tunnel. Then I despawn
and spawn what I think is a rather creative rendition of a Class Y planet with lots of ice blues and glittery orbiting rocks.
Also some neat triggerwork with spawning the first enemy group (greendragoon helped me a lot with that), as well as a couple of reskins that I think turned out very well (Remans -> Tzenkethi, Terran Empire -> Ferengi).
Ok, got some screenies.

View aft to the transwarp from ESD.
Warping to Clarus II.
Arrival at Clarus II.
, or as your staff describe it, a worthless hellhole of a Class Y planet that not even the Tholians would be interested in.
