Probe

As the ship tumbled through the void, the onboard systems attempted an orderly shutdown. Cascading failures fragmented the efforts. Software dæmons regulating read/write access to the memory spools locked out other hardware, preserving whatever data was left after the kernel panic that had crashed the FTL. The odds of recovery were low, but not so slim that it couldn't be found when drifted through the Sol system in another 80,000 years.

 

This ship was hard-won out of a box of LEGO that had no sets more recent than the Aquanauts and not nearly as many space kits as I would've liked. Still, Ice Planet lends itself nicely to clean color pallettes and hinged structures.
