Let it be known that I am posting this one against my wife's best judgment. She does not agree with my lighting (coming from both the galactic plane and the primary star). We both hold a BSí in astronomy, so we are at a stalemate... and as artist-in-residence I claim superior understanding of light and color. I may yet be wrong.... but at this juncture (as I hit SUBMIT), I do not think I am in error. Quite the contrary I am feasting on its coolness. So full steam ahead!
(even if it does mean I sleep on the couch....)
At 36700 light years from the galactic plane in the Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxy, the Clarke discovers the ruins of the Skeva'K'kk culture - a discovery that may very alter the path of social and technological development of the United Federation of Planets. And even if its ramifications aren't so dramatic, it has certainly changed the future of key members of the Clarke's crew.
