The party emerges through the wormhole intact but their ship is little more than a paperweight. They are promptly boarded and subdued. Unconscious or blindfolded they are taken to a secret base and split into two groups: humans and aliens.
The aliens are tortured for hours on end subjected to questions they cannot answer. The humans are questioned as well but much more cordially – if only by comparison.
It is discovered that the party in no longer in their home galaxy. And the galaxy they find themselves in is strikingly similar yet dangerously different than their own. Here humanity is oppressed and seen as vermin by the alien civilizations of galaxy.
The party finds themselves within the company of the Restoration, a faction of humans dedicated to the of freeing humanity from the tyrannical High Order.
Upon discovery that the party is no threat they are released. Their ship is out of commission and while the Restoration can make repairs they wish to understand the hyperdrive unit it possesses. This technology is unknown to the people of this galaxy and could be a powerful tool in breaking the stranglehold the High Order maintains through their control of the Gate Network.
Unwilling to leave her ship behind, the party’s captain elects to stay behind and oversee repairs. The Restoration provides the party with a ship they may use to make their way in the galaxy.
