One of numerous planets colonized via lottery, using PanTerra Transit Technologies teleportation equipment. Originally an artists' colony, meant to be like a utopia for creators, the colonists encountered a unique problem in the DNA of the native flora and fauna. Scientists joined the colony's population after solving that riddle and adjusting the native biology to allow for carefully monitored use by the colonists. Contractors joined the community, too, as the artists realized they could no longer live in an idyllic campground setting.



The first colony was settled on an island called Skydown, on the highest peak in a volcanic archipelago they called Aperture, as each island was part of the rim of an ancient undersea volcano.
