When the planet Xeemean was discovered ten months ago in in a recently unheard of galaxy, nicknamed the Glacies galaxy for its weak stars and cold planets, it was believed that the only life on the arctic planet consisted of simple life forms such as fish-like organisms and some sort of arctic fowl which more resembled lizards then birds. With a sunrise that according to orbital calculations only happened every 279 Earth years, Xeemean was entering its solar phase just in time for scientists to witness the true nature of this mysterious icy orb.
After two weeks of constant observation, small heat signatures were detected emanating from the nearly mile high glaciers that nearly covered 50 percent of the planets surface. Scientists intrigued by the phenomena quickly sent drones to monitor the activity and were shocked to find much larger and much more aggressive life forms cryogenically frozen deep in the ice. On the 16th day of observation by the drones, scientists witnessed through the amazing technology of video beaming across 100,000 light years the rebirth of the true rulers of this now hotbed of activity. Pun intended.
Called the Xeemean Phoenix, this mighty beast emerged from the ice weak and confused at first, ports on its massive horns glowing an eerie red, but through some sort of unknown biological heating process (which was eventually discovered to be the most complex vascular system Human beings had ever encountered, consisting of two hearts and a manufacture of super heated blood through a process similar to nuclear fission), the Phoenix quickly regained its strength, and began its reign of terror on the unaware inhabitants of Xeemean.
I think this is my third time doing some sort of arctic beastie. Tons of fun!
Thanks for looking.
