“Captain, we are approaching the system.” Lt Kasm said, as the viewscreen flickered to life in front of them. Two planets in the system were indeed geosynchronous, which, from a planetary sciences perspective, was quite rare.

“I’m sorry Lousa! I…” They were interrupted by what sounded like waves crashing against the walls of the gigantic cavern they were in. A sonorous sound resonated deep within their sternums as what was very clearly a predatory growl froze them in their tracks.
Seconds later, there was an ear shattering scream as blood sprayed across the rocks and the two Mantrans were torn to pieces.
