This Ship was created by Piscine aliens to quietly reconnoitre
and single-finnedly capture a strategic body of water on the North
American Continent of Planet Earth. However, due to bureaucratic
glitches, the launch of the craft was several thousand years late. By
the time the ship arrived the lake had already dried up and the
residual playa was crawling with Burners, an odd race of colorful
hominids. The Ship and its crew were absorbed into the motley Black
Rock fleet as a nighttime navigational aid to Burners of altered
consciousness. The ship was then kidnapped by SCUL and brought back to
the Somerville system in order that the secrets of its alien technology
be revealed and exploited. It is allowed by a humane SCUL to fulfill
its migratory imperative and return yearly to the Black Rock System.

wire augment the sensory capacity of a sophisticated lateral line
