Plot Overview

Lost Colony follows the investigation of the failure of the unknown faction colony on HX-14 that left 3.3 billion dead as of YE 39, due to a natural disaster of unknown type. Discovered and charted in YE 30 by the YSS Elfin Princess commanded by Taisa Hanako, HX-14 was discovered to be inhabited, though first contact was not made. Since then, the entire population has been killed off by an ill timed and ill designed software updating program, which left one Yamataian crew member in a coma for two days.
