"The ghost spaceship"
A cargo spaceship was reported missing while doing his FTL jump . The case went up to the level of the colonial security. At that time several cases of disappearances in the same area had pushed engineers and astrophysicists to review the FTL process, suspecting a failure, a quantum anomaly or a not listed celestial object.
A few years later, a cargo ship that went missing was found abandoned, drifting in orbit of a newly colonized planet.
Alpha research and investigation Group was sent to investigate the ship : the crew was missing ,but all of the ship rescue equipment was still onboard (rescue capsule, distress beacons) and the cargo was complete.
The information indicated that the ship had received a strong electromagnetic pulse before the loss of the ship communication and computer network. As the cargo was not stolen, it couldn't be a Piracy act ( such cases had never occured before in Colonial history).
