Dje Dje Mountains

Reported By: Dr. Genesis Schebel

As the Insurmountable studied the phenomenon of the Apogee Flare as discovered during the P-3 orbit, as originally spotted by the original voyage of the Garrulous, the computers recognized the pattern as regular and translated the apogee flare sequence into a standard sequence of primes: 1 - 2 - 3 - 5 - 7 - 11 - 13 - 17 - 19 - 23 until the flare pattern again repeated. When the Insurmountable flew in for a closer look, it became readily apparent that a series of hard crystalline structures made of Polverite covered a fifth of the surface of the planet. The scientific crew named these strange ridges the Dje Dje Mountains after a popular pop culture icon "Dje Dje Meyers."

During a mission of the Polvera Unmanned Lander Sasquatch 2, extensive samples were taken of the Polverite laden Dje Dje Mountains. The lander returned the sample set to the Insurmountable. Since the samples have been brought on board, unexplained phenomena, including the Phantom Poltergeist Effect, have been experienced by many of the crew. The onboard staff psychologist has reported into the ship's log incidents of hallucinations of all sorts, night terrors, depression, mania, and other problems usually associated with crew forced on-board for too long of an extended period.
