Hycn: Encounter On The Dead Planet

A smile flickered across her face as she realized why she agreed to come along with him. She’d agreed because it was an excuse to fly her anti-gravity fighter craft. She didn’t give a damn about exploring dead worlds and wandering planets. She wasn’t the touring kind; there was nothing interesting in exploring dead worlds. Not for her anyway. There definitely wasn’t anything worth writing home about out here on the dead planet, only ruins left behind by an alien civilization long dead.

“I heard you loud and clear the first time.” A suprisingly deep but friendly amused voice came through the high definition 3D sound communications system installed into the ship.

“Was still taken by the ruins below. Look, some of the alien structures are still standing. I would love to go at least two hundred miles before we can head back to the carrier.” Kocz stated.

“Come on, we‘ll explore the planet later. We have lots of time to explore. We'll be here for three full days remember? Let’s go back, I’m really tired.” Xerla pleaded. She might have been in love with flying but at the moment her body was almost at its limit, she needed sleep.

“Just a few miles. Please?” Kocz beseeched.

“Fine. Just a few miles, not more than hundred though. When we reach the hundredth mile mark from here I am returning to the Maztica. With or without you.” Xerla told him.

“Aaaah, party pooper. Don’t tell me you aren’t mesmerized by the beauty of those ruins below.” Kocz said quizzically.

“Not even slightly. Although I wonder what transpired on this planet and what happened to its people.” She informed him.

“It’s simple. This planet’s people angered God. This is what happens when you piss him off.” Kocz commented. He was a devoted Inzperu. The one and only existing religion in all of Hycn. The Inzperu credited a god named Zuralyrkro to have created planets, galaxies and all life in the whole universe. Theirs was a religion that acknowledged the existence of extra-terrestrial life forms in other space vectors, and encouraged people to love one another and live peacefully. Although like most religions in the universe, Inzperu also preached against the devil and warned its followers about the end times.

“I thought you believed in science.” Xerla tested him. “What’s up with the religious talk?”

“Yes I believe in science, but it doesn’t mean I shouldn’t believe in God too.” Kocz debated.

“Last time I checked science said everything was formed after the big bang.” Xerla pressed him.

“The small particle that is said to have exploded  and formed the universe had to have a source it came and originated from right? That’s where the big guy comes into the picture. It was created by him.” Kocz said.

Xerla chuckled. “If only you were listening to yourself! According to what you are saying then he too was created by some source which also had to be created by some other source and so on, since you say everything has to have a source.”

“My point precisely, except that part where you...
