Although initial probe did not come within 50 million km of Drakes World, it was determined that the planet was covered with circular features thought to be impact structures. However, for a planet with a substantial atmosphere, large enough to still have tectonism, and in a system where most of the terrestrial planets show less the 1/2 of the cratering of our own solar system, why is this world so impacted? *UPDATE* Probe is in orbit. This planet will be of interest to xenobiologists - atmosphere contains compounds that are thought to not exist in nature. Many fission byproducts - polonium, cesium, thorium, and americium. Circular features are indeed indicators of impacts; however, these impacts have happened recently (<1000 years ...

A quite unique science fiction wiki
Galaxiki is a completely new kind of science fiction and fantasy wiki, as it's a complete galaxy with millions of stars, planets and moons that are all represented by wiki pages. It's a collaborative community website where all users can help to fill the galaxy with life.
A wiki is software that allows users to create, edit, and link web pages easily, and one of the best known wikis is Wikipedia. Just as Wikipedia allows to edit articles, Galaxiki allows to edit stars, planets and moons. In fact you may consider each object in our science fiction galaxy to be one editable article:
One of the most interesting points is that your work doesn't have to be isolated. In general we'd like to follow common physical rules, but as this is a science fiction site some physical rules can be broken, and that's how it's allowed to travel faster than light in our galaxy. Which means that species from different planets and solar systems can meet, and users have to take care to keep the entire histories and stories consistent.
