The Zurara is a megaship that was involved in Project Dynasty. It was created specifically for a single deep space exploration mission to find Earth-like Worlds in the Formidine Rift, but upon completing its mission, sleeper agents among the crew sabotaged the ship, ensuring it would remain derelict above planet 1 of the Syreadiae JX-F c0 system.
The Zurara was constructed in secret by The Club and boasted a state-of-the-art design with the latest Auto Field-Maintenance Units to keep it running during its long-term foray to the Formidine Rift. The megaship formed one of Project Dynasty's three expeditions, with the other two bound for the Scutum-Sagittarii Conflux and Hawking's Gap using Anacondas instead. It launched from the Core Systems in April 3270, and arrived in the distant Syreadiae JX-F c0 system six months later in October 3270. Upon confirming the presence of an Earth-like World and deploying the expedition's final navigation beacon to mark it, sleeper agents hidden among the crew began attacking their colleages and damaging vital ship systems. The crew fended off the attackers, who committed suicide using a lethal memory-wiping drug called Hexedit, but with the main reactor down and life support failing, the survivors resigned themselves to death. The Zurara's final log entries were made on October 1, 3270, about twenty minutes before life support was exhausted.
On August 21, 3273, an independent pilot who went by the name of Rebecca tracked down The Zurara. Rebecca had once worked for The Club, but had turned against them and sought to expose their conspiracy. She connected The Zurara to Project Dynasty and left a series of her own log entries for future explorers to find.
On April 17, 3303, a group of technology enthusiasts called The Hamsters based in Tionisla found a message left behind by Rebecca hidden within exploration data that had been gathered for the Children of Raxxla group the previous year. Solving the riddle revealed the name of the Syreadiae JX-F c0 system, leading to the discovery of The Zurara and its audio logs.
