Home Soil


Home Soil

The Enterprise pays a visit to a group of terraformers. There’s just one problem: that terra may not be theirs to form. There’s something going on on the planet, and all signs point to aline life. Except for the life part. Murder! Mystery! Shiny objects! All of this and more when we put Home Soil in the Mission Log.

    Why would you terraform in a galaxy said to be filled with Class-M worlds? Maybe because there might not be any in a particular sector of space, perhaps a sector with strategic or economic importance to the Federation?

    I thought it might have made for a more interesting story if the life forms weren’t intelligent, or maybe were dying out or confined to a small portion of the planet. Would the planet have still been considered unsuitable for terraforming on ethical grounds? I am reminded of those stories today of property developers whose projects and investments might be stymied by the discovery of some endangered species in the area, and how the arguments for and against protecting them play out.
