Caravan Escape Challenge

Author of the Caravan Escape Challenge: AzzinothAzzinoth

Lead your caravan to the rescue ship in 90 days before the sun turns supernova!


Due to a malfunctioning warp core you drop out of warp very close to a dying star. The ship computer estimates that the star has only about 90 days until it becomes a supernova that will destroy the whole star system. The star is radiating powerful solar flares which disrupt your electronics and initiate a catastrophic chain reaction in your warp core. Just seconds before your ship computer eventually gives up the ghost it detects an unknown ship on the surface of the only habitable planet in the system. You rush to your escape pods and a few minutes later you see your ship exploding behind you. You’re now heading towards the planet’s surface. Your last hope is to reach the unknown ship before the star explodes. However, the journey from your landing site to the ship won’t be an easy task, since the solar flares of the dying star are disrupting all electronics on the surface.
