The Silver Wheel


The Eden hypothesis states that the many human cultures of known space originated on Terra and were taken to their worlds by a race known as The Shepherds.

The origins of the Lazloi however, are somewhat complicated. Whilst undoubtedly human in origin, their unparalleled longevity, immunity from disease, white hair and deeply modified genetic code suggests another alien intervention in prehistoric times.

Whilst their technology appears on a par with the Autocracy, stories about ‘supernatural’ powers persist. The authorities do not regard them as a threat however, as they are so small in numbers.

Since they rarely venture into mainstream society, the sighting of a Lazloi ship is cause for comment. The superstitious say that they only appear in troubled times.

For those that believe in such stories, the arrival of the Lazloi merchant cruisers, ‘The Screaming Fist’, ‘The Queen of Shadows’, and ‘The Silver Wheel’ is a deeply troubling precedent.
