5028 Insight V2 Finale
Transit to Celestial Plains
“So explain how exactly we’re going to make it onto the Plains.” Lux asked, “Because as it’s come to my attention, no one has actually managed to get there and back.”
“It’s simple.” I began to explain, “There are two tricks to getting in there safely. The Plains exist in a pocket dimension which has a link through a shifting wormhole in the center of the galaxy. As you’re passing through that wormhole, you need to be broadcasting a certain frequency. If you get the right one, it sends you right to the Soulless base. Only the Soulless Commanders know what the frequency is.”
“And thankfully, we have one with us.” Manda chimed in, leaning forward, looking at me. “So that’s the first trick. What’s the other one?”

I groaned as I came to, shaking my head to help wake myself up. As I opened my eyes, I found myself hanging by the straps that held me to the co-pilot chair, suspended over the shattered windshield of the Olympus, over a white cliff face. I grunted as I attempted to shift in my restraints, getting a better look around me. Lux hung similarly to me, still unconscious. I strained to attempt to find Manda, but couldn’t look very far back. I knew I’d have to get out and look around more thoroughly, but I knew the second I was free of the chair’s restraining grips I would be falling. I stared straight down, my hand hovering over the locking mechanism on the belts that held me there, trying to force myself to move.
When I finally mustered up enough courage, I pressed down, the straps sliding away. I let out a startled shout as I began to drop, stretching out my arm to grab the edge of where t

Ilisa Te Raí
From the go, it was obvious that Ilisa Te Raí was in no way similar to Solra in its construction. Comparatively, there was a lack of art here over from Solra, at least on the exterior. What little of it was there was in the form of aesthetic designs inlaid with some form of shimmering blue stone I hadn’t come across before. This temple wasn’t built into anything either. Rather, it stood tall and proud as three faced, domed pyramid, a stairway leading up the center of all faces, ending at what appeared to be an open room at the top. Plantlife had begun to start to overrun the ancient structure, covering a lot of the brown and blue with touches of green and orange. Lux and I had begun climbing the steep slope of the steps, making our way up to the peak of the temple. Once to the top, Lux took a look around.
“Right, so, the door. Supposed to be around here somewhere.”

Transit to Monteria
There was something cozy about the Olympus. It had this general welcomeness and hominess about it. The galley area was brightly lit, filled with old posters and action figures, as well as a few ancient dvds. Despite these small things, the interior of the ship seemed pretty well kempt, contrasting the exterior of the ship. The cockpit in itself had a sort of closeness to it that made it feel comfortable. It was also a lot darker up here, with only the faint light of monitors and the wormhole flowing around the ship like a blue and black ocean. Beside me, in the pilot’s seat, unmoved, was Lux. He gazed straight ahead, the knuckles on his hands, curled around the wheel, a pale white.
“Hey, you okay?” I asked, “You haven’t loosened up since we left the Sparrow.” He didn’t move, nor did he answer, I pushed, “Lux, what’s wrong?” He let out a dis
