Beautiful comets and faraway galaxies zip past the windows as you stare into the infinite from your prison cell window. Around you, the other prisoners murmur, grumble, weep, and sit, contemplating their fates while the guards' footsteps echo through the ship. The Maximum Security Prison Transport Ship speeds through space like an asteroid full of imprisoned criminals, arrested and restrained in their cells. Each prisoner here has been found guilty of terrible crimes, and now, truly guilty or not, they slowly descend to their new home.
The planet comes into view-- Gray and dry, with cracks of red lava coursing across the earth, as if the whole thing threatened to crumble in on itself at any second. Plants could be seen, just as gray and cold as anything else-- And as the ship drew closer, you can see shattered buildings and desolate ruins as far as the eye can see. There's a large ring around the planet, a beautiful pale ring that the ship heads straight towards-- And as it grows closer, it becomes apparent that the ring surrounding the planet is not made of mere asteroids and space dust, but millions upon millions of satellites, all shining bright lights down on the planet, watching from orbit.
"Now arriving at Planet X4329. Landing shall commence shortly. Please brace and adjust for atmospheric transition."
"Alright prisoners," A voice calls through the ship's speakers, "This is your last stop. You have each been given rations and a supply kit that will last you however long you make it last. Your restraints and cell doors will open automatically when you reach the planet. Remember that should you attempt to escape, the Automated Satellite Security Ring will incapacitate any attempted off-world transport, and if necessary, eliminate you. This planet is your new home, for now until you die. And for those who don't wish to wait, a Death Capsule has been added along with your supply kit. It's our final kindness to you. Now, with all that said and done..."
You feel your cell shudder and shake, as the rest of the ship suddenly begins to shrink away from you.
"The Empire of Andromeda bids you farewell."
With that, you and your cell suddenly rocket off, spiraling down towards the planet rapidly, a drag chute popping outside your window as you break through the atmosphere. The cell's descent slows as you go from hurtling to drifting down, gently-- The Prison Ship is already speeding off far into the distance, trails of energy fading away as the only starship for miles rockets far out of reach. The stars overhead slowly fade away, as you sink further towards Planet X4329.
Where you will end up on this desolate, dying planet is unknown. The only things you have left are a kit of supplies, a few months worth of rations, and your wit and will to survive. All you know for sure is that out here, on this wasted, dying world, you are totally, and truly, alone... Or are you? Out the window you can still see them-- The other prisoners, floating towards the ground like dandelion dust. As you and the others float slowly towards the ground, you realize, that you may all be left here to die alone...
But at least you're alone together.
