Bet you’ve never tried an Interactive murder mystery event? No me neither, but this looks fab. The year is 2315. An away team of the Captain and 4 officers from the Galaxy Spacecraft Atlantic transported down to Planet Kappa-7 to seek a place for new life. After a successful peace treaty mission at Theta-6. On returning to the ship, they found the ship deserted. Within 24 hours the ship's self-destruct sequence was activated, the crew and Captain were forced to evacuate the ship... Captain’s escape pod didn’t launch – the four remaining crew members are on their way back to Earth... Can you solve the mystery of who (or what?!) caused the mission to fail and Captain's escape pod to malfunction?
