The Jade Imperium of a Thousand Worlds

1984: A US research station in Antarctica discovers a bizzare artifact frozen in the ice, guarded by a dangerous biological entity. The armed search and rescue team that arrives later excavates the artifact and transports it to the Mesas Negras Army research facility in Arizona, where it undergoes intense, top-secret testing.

Two decades pass before research teams discover how the object is powered. Dedicated conduits from the nearby nuclear power plant are connected to the underground research labs.

2007: The Mesas Negras Gateway is activated, creating a short-lived portal to a hospitable planet calculated to be 30-some light years from Earth. Plans are set in motion for remote probes and then a manned mission.
