Ashley Madison Investigation Notes.
Investigations by the new ruling authority, Ultra Prime Concepts, reveal the depth of incompetence, perhaps bordering on criminal negligence, of the previous regime. Our home simply cannot feed itself. Without imports starvation would be endemic. Ultra Prime is paying simply to feed the people, but this is a recipe of doom for our economy. Catastrophe looms. (instill panic)
Important figures at Ultra Prime have recognized this worry and are implementing a far-sighted plan to address the situation. At least one possible agri-world has been claimed by Ultra Prime to be developed to solve this problem. A rag-tag team of independent contractors, drawn from a variety of backgrounds has been brought together to explore this new world, the hope for our future. (human interest, character sketches?)
On the planet Arurshim the crew of SS Heinlein pick up their frozen science people (learn some science) and transport them to explore Maikaguun III.
The world is lush and full of potential (see holo), but also has mysteries (archaeology stuff), and dangers (real animals of death!). (extended description for upmarket media source). The heroic crew starts an extensive fact-finding mission while protecting the science people. Fully flushed with excitement our intrepid explorers return with the news to Aroshim.
(separate investigation) Government corruption on Arurshim Mysterious government contact known only as Jacqueline Q. requests an independent investigation into a "business partner" (personal too?) Jennifer Quallare. Insinuation of possibly shady rewards. Subject located on Aroshim surface at remote mountain villa. J.Q. wants the "problem" to go away. Ashley Madison will investigate this wherever it goes to bring the truth to the people.
