They called it Shannon's World, a pleasure planet where fantasies and dreams became real, and even the weariest could find rest and comfort. And then the awful thing happened. Afterward, Shannon's World cut itself off from the empire. Visitors were destroyed while still in orbit, no matter whom they represented, and the Empress put the planet under quarantine. So things remained, until the most important strategist in the Empire, Vincent Harker, crash-landed on the planet. The Empress sent down a company of her elite battle troops to recover him. They never came back.
