My name is Captain Olimar. On my homeworld of Hocotate, I am a well known
navigator of the stars. I use my faithful ship, the Dolphin, to carry small
freight and minerals from planet to planet. It is a job of no small
importance, and I take it seriously.
The journey began well. With no set destination in mind, I simply allowed the
sleek Dolphin of mine to make its own efficient way through the vast reaches
of space. A strange feeling came over me... I then felt a premonition that my
short trip would soon become an epic adventure. I dismissed the thought as
foolishness from my overactive brain, then switched the Dolphin to autopilot
and stood up from the control seat to make a hot cup of tea. Just then, a
massive jolt shook the Dolphin! For a brief moment, my mind reeled with the
possibilities of what might have happened, but I had little time to react.
I was thrown against the control panel, and I blacked out.
When I came to, I found that the Dolphin had crashed on a strange planet, in
a place whose name and location I could not guess. I thanked the laws of
chaos that I was at least, for the time, safe. After some inspection, I
noticed that the Dolphin was so shaken during reentry that several of her
pieces had been jarred loose, probably scattered around the planet. To make
matters worse, my sensors indicated that the planet's atmosphere contained
oxygen, an element incredibly deadly to my people. Fortunately, the
life-support system built into my suit seemed unharmed, but I knew that it
had only enough remaining battery power to function for another 30 days. If
only I could find the engine, then at least I could fly within this planet's
atmosphere to search for the other parts...
