Chapter 5: Enarw - Part Two
“It’s a colder planet,” said Tateena. “The polar caps extend far down from the poles, so whatever habitation we find will likely be in that band you see below the white. Looks like one main continent, and some islands on the far side of the planet.”
“Find what looks to be the most habitable section, and look for signs of development,” said Jendi. “Any signs of space travel here?”
“None,” said Renger. “Nothing in orbit that we can see.”
“Another backward planet,” sighed Jendi. “Let me know what you come up with.” She left the bridge and walked back to her cabin. An hour passed and Tateena knocked on Jendi’s cabin before coming in.
“We have a good location,” she said, “and Renger will put us down as soon as you give the word.”
“Great, let’s take a look at what you found.”
When Jendi came back to the bridge, Tateena showed her on the map where two rivers reached the ocean, and the land between them showed signs of habitation. That was likely to be the place with the most people, and thus where the local government sat. Jendi gave the order and the Candell descended through the atmosphere.
