Originally considered for colonization by the Ganites, this plant is named Stix for its extreme remoteness from the rest of the Ganite systems. It was found though that the planet was too difficult to terraform and colonization was abandoned.
Before leaving, the Ganites discovered an ancient spaceship in an underground cavern. It was quickly searched, and a large metal rod was discovered. The rod is a strange phenomenon. It measures about three feet long, but seems to be charged with more electric power than a standard city. In fact, some theorist claim that the rod has unlimited power. There are no outward signs of this however. It was only discovered by Ganite scientists after months of testing. The rod also absorbs electrical power, as the scientists discovered when they tried running electricity through it. Inside the spaceship, next to the rod, this piece of ancient text was found, on a tablet that had had the end blasted off by some sort of scorching blast.
The Ganites are now concentrating their efforts on decoding this, hoping it will allow them to access the power of the rod.
A second, longer peice of code was also found. The Ganites are decoding this too.
