Kal'a-zor Star System
This system's star is visible from Arlekia and was named Kal'a-zor centuries ago, at the formation of the Republic. Kal'a-zor was a figure in Arlekian cultural history who - herself an artist - had sacrificed her life to save pieces of artwork (it was later found she had also protected her fellow artisans and allowed them to escape; many of whom produced works that existed in museums to this day). This was during a particularly dark period of Arlekian history when art and culture were not just banned from being produced, but were actively destroyed due to religious doctrine. Long range analysis by the Deep Space Observatory around a decade previously had earmarked this system as a prime candidate to hold a planet that could support life comfortably.
Above the tandem planets, the orbital scans and atmospheric analysis were complete; surface missions were authorised now that solar activity had reduced.
At each of the two planets, 5 APC dropships entered the atmospheres of these tandem worlds. This was a truly historic moment as, although expeditions had landed on other planets none had done so on a planet not orbiting the home system.
All personnel were to wear PBA (Personal Body Armour) or space suits until a full toxicology and virus / bacterial scan was complete. Conversely, these were pristine worlds and Arlekians could carry diseases unwittingly that could have a huge impact on the ecosystems of these worlds.
It was by ballot that the first Arlekian to set foot on each planet was decided. A civilian scientist was to set foot on Kal'a-zor 3a and a Jemn Hadar Sergeant on Kal'a-zor 3b. Neither planet had been formally named yet.
The craft at either location came to rest on the alien worlds...

The Hornet drones raced back to the landing site. There were three of them holding close formation, one with its weapons array removed and a large amount of infometry equipment in a module attached to it. The other two were armed and providing escort. This way thousands of km could be covered in detail and in safety: their pilots on board the APC dropships parked near each other and fanning out from a semi permanent structure that acted as the command and control for the Arlekians.
The structure was similar to those used on the missions to Maasi some years before. They provided a large space that could be accessed via airlock. This would allow them to work and sleep without the need for armour or space suits.
With around 1000 Arlekians on the surface, this was a sizable structure. The Mar-Pol Merchant Naval Freighters had carried these plus water, food and supplies for the entire flotilla. Water reclamation wasn't a real issue - the ships and the hab structure were 98.9% efficient in water recovery. Food stocks were OK for several months and He3 fuel stocks were in good health.
The data from the Hornets was downloaded and logged. A good quality map was developing of the surface. The issue was that under the sea hadn't been searched at all. Being a race with aquatic origins; this wasn't a serious issue but until toxicology and viral/bacterial screens came back none of the Arlekians would be having a swim anytime soon...
The console beeps again, and reveals that the Grand Admiral already has the proper earpiece installed, and this one is for Lord Hadrian. Talks cannot begin until he installs it.
Lord Hadrian considered the wisdom of placing an unknown piece of technology so close to his brain, which he considered to be very important. He then considered the idea that no one else thought that, felt a flash of bone deep weariness and proceeded to hesitantly don the earpiece, idly mumbling, "Queen willing, I will survive."
The earpiece quickly let out a series of beeps, before stating in perfect Sakooran that the neural connection had been established.
Grand Admiral Ioannes Angelus "It sure took you long enough. If I wanted you dead, I would have simply sent a rifle cohort down here and had you shot. Now, barbarian, state what you want from the Magna Imperii, and do it fast, I have little time to waste on bandying words."
Having gotten passed it, they find a new system. The planets, are very bad to be frank, though this does prove that they were meant as some kind of slingshot, not a weapon. There is another of the cannons in the system, and the scouts attempt to study it; after all, they have plenty of supplies to do it and make it home too.
As the colony continues to grow, the population now exceeds 50k, and resources flow from it to the capital. It is considered an ideal colony, and is what will be desired for new colonies, which are already being prepared.
The prototype probe was lowered into the nearest coastline to the base.
It was very similar to the Hornet drone but it didn't utilise magneto-repulsion effect for propulsion, just more primitive (and reliable) turbines.
The infometry package was adjusted for under-water application and the pilot guided the drone from the shallows. The connection should work down to 8km and the depth at the nearest trench was 7.5km. The range could be boosted by dropping a signals buoy and one remained on standby.
An hour into the survey, only 15 fish and crustacean species had been identified with examples collected from each. Water temperature and SONAR indicated a hydrothermal vent nearby. This was what the research team were especially interested in as such events on Arlekia had cradled their ancestors many thousands of years ago.
The drone approached carefully and took readings until it was hit from the side. The probe was unarmed but had equipment such as welding torches and robot arms. The pilot turned the main camera around to observe the attacker, only to see several tentacles smash into the other side of the drone. The pilot tried pulling away but was being drawn into a 3-jawed mouth that snapped open and shut. With the probe's arms trapped or disabled, the pilot opened a covered red button and pressed it.
6.75km underwater the huge squid creature thought it had a tasty meal. This was stronger than most of its prey and better armoured but crack the shell... The squid was about to bite into the strange creature when a massive static discharge forced it to let go. With almost a shriek of pain, it withdrew most of its hooked barbs and swum off; discharging an ink as it swam off. The strange creature, seemingly immobile, burst its top as a gas balloon dragged it upwards towards the surface.
An APC hovered over the ocean where the balloon first broke the surface, then the probe. This was winched aboard with two squid tentacles still attached and taken back to the lab for analysis...
