The three members of the SS ship called “Korangar” were flung at a tremendous speed, thousands of light-years in a matter of seconds to a pre-programmed position in space. This was the eighteenth attempt by the Secret Service to venture into Saturn’s wormhole with its ‘unstable other end of the rainbow.’ Explorers never knew exactly where the probes emerged because of the instability (moving) of the wormhole’s far end.
The crew of three and the Korangar suddenly appeared in the vicinity of a planet and its satellite. In the other seventeen attempts to traverse to ‘the other side’ of the galaxy, SS ships always arrived near a planet and its system of moons. ‘Other ends’ were never in deep space away from celestial bodies. It was theorized that Saturn’s wormhole was not unstable, but part of an abandoned transit system for cosmic creatures that knew how to use the wormhole.
The explorers or ‘children’ of the universe and ‘Secret Space program’ slowly learned what the galaxy was about and how to maneuver.
The new world was named “Morra” by the explorers and was rare with only a single moon, which was called “Draka.” Not much was known from home-world scans, on the other side of the “Mirror” or the other side of the galaxy.
The history of SS probes included only one prime discovery, only one planet and 10 satellites where others of their kind were replenished. Outside of Helion and just two of its moons, there were no possible lands, realms or dimensions the explorers could expand to, so far. Another fertile planet had to be found with this mission or next mission since, soon, resources of home-world and passed visitations to Helion would be completely depleted.
Their kind was in desperate trouble. They needed food and energy.
Korangar stood still and safe as it physically reformed from the incredible experience of transported 90,000 light-years in a blink of an eye! The crew also coagulated and quickly received accurate readings. They now recorded detailed facts on the fresh world and its moon:
Morra was nearly 8000 miles in diameter with a black ocean that covered 79% of the surface while the solid portion of the planet covered 21%. Draka was almost 240,000 miles away, held a synchronous relationship with Morra and always kept one side toward the planet. The explorers understood this nearly unique situation in the cosmos was always a sign of ‘intelligence at work.’
The crew members were extremely overjoyed and moved with excitement, as well as they could inside thick/shiny spacesuits. Previously populated Helion and its two moons helped and sustained the explorers and others of their kind for years. Now they were about lifeless, drained. Places with new ‘food and energy’ were so necessary for survival. Morra and Draka were dreams come true for the crew and millions of their kind who suffered terribly back on home-world.
To the explorers, home-world was a lone planet in a system of one that orbited a Black Sun or 'Saturn.' In the last 50 years of their ‘doomed society,’ it was discovered that the Dark Star had a ‘wormhole’ companion or Gateway to other systems. LIFE had to be found in the cosmos to sustain beings that orbited the Saturn Sun. Life, at last, was found! Lifeforms in the billions were discovered upon dark lands and in black oceans of Morra and even its moon, Draka!
The last ten SS missions turned up totally barren planets with very sparse resources and hardly a heartbeat or flicker of life. Here were two worlds in a locked orbit that teemed with living, breathing creatures. They, along with 13 other planets, also spun around a Black Star. The Food and Energy to maintain their kind were abundant! Their species will survive for many, many years to come. The three would also be proclaimed as great heroes by a few leaders, ‘secret heroes’ since there were complicated reasons to not divulge desperate attempts at survival to masses back home.
The crew found an oddity: Most lifeforms from the ‘locked, in-sync’ dark planet and moon were within the hollow core of Draka. In fact, there were more living creatures inside the satellite than inside the hollow core of Morra.
The Korangar came to rest a short distance above one of the ‘Seas of Draka,’ near a port or conduit that led down to artificial interiors and many other living, breathing inhabitants of the Moon.
The excited trio were exhausted with the pre-mission preparations, practice exercises, anticipations, anxieties, pressures and even the ‘hunger’ for real success. And now, to have executed what was Chance or ‘blind luck,’ only to have it turn up as the ultimate or at least temporary saving of their species…
They were happy little space travelers and very proud of themselves, to say the least.
Scanners showed there were living and breathing creatures inside facilities near one of the ports to lower levels of the satellite.
The hungry crew indulged themselves of the ‘resources’ and ‘energy’ right in front of them. They would be the first of their kind to test the ‘new blood.’ It had been very long, with all the blood and energy rationing…
Now three, in a sense, ‘spiritual vampires,’ undid the spacesuits they wore and flew into the lunar facility and gorged themselves! The dark angels only viewed a deadly, decayed and ruined ‘other side of the Mirror’ because…that was how evil entities viewed the wonderful world of bright lights and colors and goodness on the other side.
The explorers opened a Gateway from their negative world to Earth and its lunar colonies. Evil survived here for a long time until its appetite and thirst for blood were quenched. Then finally, it left us dry and dead in its wake…
