Four weeks ago, during the initial stages of survey of Eugales V - Moon 1, designated ‘Umai,’ and deployment of the KreluCorpLLC Harvester, a number of anomalous readings were recorded, and initially passed over. More intensive surveys preceding the first fracturing again came back with similar anomalous readings, and fracturing was delayed to allow time for a proper investigation.
LADAR sweeps, and Ground-Penetrating Radar were employed across a 50km swath of the surface around the origin point of the original readings, and a rough outline of a structural ruin was discovered beneath the surface, along with an entry point, through which a swarm of mapping drones was released to rapidly gain a more detailed idea of the structure’s layout. This mapping process was conducted and completed over a three day period and the mapping drones were recalled and recovered.
The mapped ruin measures at its widest point 3.4 kilometers, and reaches roughly 426 meters below the surface.
Eventually the decision was made to continue with the moonfracturing process, but at a longer duration, and over a wider area than was initially planned.
A team of specialists was deployed into the ruin to setup a series of advanced inertial fields through the ruin to stabilize it ahead of the extraction, and then the ruin, along with 33 kilometers of moonchunk surrounding it, were extracted over a two week period.
Once the extraction had completed, the section of the moonchunk holding the ruins was separated with a controlled blast, and towed to a position 4000 kilometers past the Harvester, and a Raitaru engineering complex, the Umai Reliquary Complex, was anchored around the ruin to act as an enclosure and contained observation research center.
At this time, the UNF has after some deliberation, reached out to Sapphire Interstellar Banking Solutions to bring them aboard in an advisory capacity for the preservation of the ruin through their public preservation initiatives.
We will eventually open the research enclosure to further third parties who inquire and show interest, but for now, the decks that surround and encompass the ruin aboard the Reliquary Complex are currently accessible only to authorized individuals.
Thank you for your time.
