Description: Constact was lost with the I.S.S. Admiral Kolchak two weeks into its mission to test the newest version of the Lomonosov FTL drive. Up to this date, all ships had been using the Angelikovo (Aнгеликово) drive which had been successfully used by the I.S.S. Lepanto's history-making trip to Proxima Centauri in 2212. As part of these trials, the Admiral Kolchak was performing a number of short faster-than light "shunts" beyond the Öpik–Oort cloud. The ship's last transmission from the ship's captain indicated that the tests had been suspended to investigate an ancient, and believed derelict, One World space craft. After three days of no contact the I.S.S. Vistula was dispatched on an emergency rescue mission but no trace of the Admiral Kolchak could be found.
