As the Galaxy spins…

The strongest spinner series in recent memory has reached high into the most densely populated branch of the Kroy sector. Devastation unlike none the Kroy has ever seen has reached one of their most populated planets. But the Kroy are not the only ones affected by this wave of violent weather. Their neighboring systems of Taihi and Kuba have all suffered enormous losses. As galactic climate patterns change, many are asking themselves: is this the new normal?

A Spinner Series is a yearly occurrence. Any group of spinners so strong on one planet that it disturbs the natural radiation around certain planets and encourages similar stronger storms to form can be called a series. Kroy scientists have taken to naming the strong series in any given season. Shortly after naming their most recent series ‘Randy’, they began noticing that the series was starting to gather serious strength.

As the series began to build in Kroy’s neighboring systems, scientists began to worry. The storms started taking a serious toll on the already struggling systems of Taihi and the Hambas. While several small satellite systems in the Hambas were able to weather their storms, Taihi was overwhelmed. Taihi was still recovering from the devastating tremor that destroyed their major station 3 years ago. Their sanitation systems and hydroponic crops have been struggling to regain their footing. When the series reached their station, 70 percent of their crops were destroyed, and their water recycling systems all but obliterated. Currently 98 people have died in the storms themselves, but many more can be affected. With no food and poor sanitation, thousands are already falling sick from cholera and other diseases.

Even Kuba – the small, flourishing system that has long been a symbol of resistance against the influence of the Kroy – was hit by the series. Although only 11 lives were lost in Kuba, the damage to the infrastructure was far greater.

With all the misery and destruction that the ‘Randy’ series had already caused, scientists were troubled greatly when it started to head towards one of the great Planet-wide cities of the Kroy – the planet of Mars. Mars had rarely seen inclimate weather, and had only seen part of a major storm 8 years ago. But as it became evident that the series would affect the planet state, both Ebaj and the Mars Moguls began organizing shuttles off-world.

The preparation helped many, but not enough. 30 people died in the systems of Mars. The famous Martian shuttle crafts were grounded for days. And, as of this writing, many people in the busiest sectors of the planet do not have power or water.

While it cannot be said that galactic warming directly causes any one storm, it does increase the severity of each storm. The 350 movement points to storms like Randy as a sign of galactic climate change, and champions the need to reduce galactic radiation. The destruction caused by the Randy series has brought the point ever closer to home. After studying the storm to determine why it was so aggressive, many top scientists believe that the melting ice caps on the planets that were affected increased the severity of the storms. And the increased radiation surrounding the planets helped the series travel faster farther. This was how the storms in the series were able to reach distances once deemed nearly impossible for a normal series to reach.

While the first priority of this devastating series is to help those affected, the second should be the prevention of further storms like it. If the environmental factors which created these storms are left to grow unchecked, the chance of harm coming to innocent civilians will multiply with every Spinner Series Season. Ignoring the impact of radiation on the galaxy is causing nothing but heartbreak. The systems of Taihi and Kuba have shown that those who already struggling to survive are the hardest hit. And the damage on Mars shows that no one will be safe from these massive storms.
