Notable Information:

Mysterious claims are intertwined with tenuous realities in this mission as the players’ ship enters the pocket universe containing the Displaced Tilikaal, suffering multiple system overloads during the passage. The crew struggles to perform repairs while experiencing hallucinations caused by background electromagnetic fields within the pocket universe. Two Starfleet officers, who entered the universe separately from the ship, briefly appear on the bridge, then disappears. The crew finds ways to mitigate the EM fields, rescue the Starfleet officer, and meet Ash’Tamalia’s spiritual form, her aderi, face to face. She tells the story of the Displaced and pleads for Starfleet to help them escape the pocket universe and reclaim their physical bodies.
The crew then finds a way to open a portal back to the Candidate Three system and they and their ship return to their universe.

Mission Recap: The adventure ran through as described in the Shackleton Expanse Campaign Guide.
Captain T’Kor from the U.S.S. Galvarino materialized on the bridge of the U.S.S Kimura. Lt. Cmd. Sivath and Chief Petty Officer Brenner also briefly appear but then disappear. The crew decides to focus on rescuing them before trying to make contact with Ash’Tamalia. They succeed in rescuing them and then proceed to contact Ash’Tamalia, working their way through the rest of the adventure.

At the end of the adventure, Taemin agrees to link with Turlonumien. The Kimura returns to the Candidate Three system and heads back to Narendra Station with the Galvarino and Venture for some much needed repairs and down time.
