Hand of Creation
Level Requirement: Level 10 and above
Quest Location: The Bridge
Quests Given From: Queen Pra'Mithia
Queen Pra'Mithia: The Protean Peace Alliance has invited me to their Museum of Antiquity on their homeland of Protus. Most Proteans who are members of the Network have been gone, traveling in the Devourer's path for centuries--
Queen Pra'Mithia: --so Protus should be fairly safe. Just in case, however, I would like you to accompany me. What do you say, brave WarpForcer?
To Protus! - Continue with the dialogue
Queen Pra'Mithia: «You» will be going down to the surface of Protus with me.
«You»: Queen Pra'Mithia, our shuttle is ready!
Celestra: There have been some signs of Network activity in their sector lately. I wouldn't be surprised if they were planning something...
Amada: Me either, Huntress. To be on the safe side, why don't you go scout around the Protean city, and I will patrol orbit with the Alteon.
«You»: Don't worry, Queen. I'll do whatever it takes to protect you if it comes to that!
«The scene switches to the planet Protus, where a shuttle comes down to escort the Queen into the museum.»
Raz-griff: Esteemed guests Queen Pra'Mithia and «You», I present to you the pride of the Protean Museum of Antiquity...
Raz-griff: -- the Hand of Creation!
«You»: It's quite beautiful. Who made it? And just how old is it?
Raz-griff: The maker of the Hand is unknown to us, as is its age.
Pra'Mithia: Thank you very much for showing us this treasure, Esteemed Minister Raz-griff.
Pra'Mithia: I understand how much of an honor this opportunity is. You rarely invite non-Proteans to your world, and it is even rarer to invite an outsider into the Museum.
«You»: *ahem* Sorry, but what exactly makes this Hand of Creation so special? If you don't know its age or where it comes from--
Pra'Mithia: I apologize for my aide's directness, Esteemed Minister--
Raz-griff: Oh, there is no need, Queen. I appreciate «You»'s curiosity.
Raz-griff: It is not that we are unaware of WHERE the Hand came from. In fact, it is precisely WHERE it is from that makes it so special to us.
Raz-griff: We do not know WHO or WHAT made it, but we know where it is from.
Pra'Mithia: And where might that be, Esteemed Minister?
«A short cutscene shows the orbit around Protus, where a few Exo Clawships approach the planet. As a few shuttles from the Alteon try to intercept the Clawships, the Clawships fire a few shots at the shuttles...»
Raz-griff: On a Winter's eve 3 cycles ago, a beam of light, brighter than our suns, came from the stars and pierced the surface of Protus.
Raz-griff: When the light faded, a volcano formed where the beam had struck-- The volcano exploded forth a gout of lava, and with it the Hand of Creation.
Raz-griff: It was as if the Hand had been hidden at the center of our world since the beginning of time. But its material defies our science's ability to measure its age.
«You»: !!!! Sorry to interrupt, Minister -- but I need to let the Queen know that the Alteon spotted an Exo ship approaching Protus!
«You»: The Alteon is now engaged in battle with an entire squadron of Exo clawships!
Pra'Mithia: Why is the Network here-- especially now??
Raz-griff: They must have found out about the Hand of Creation.
«You»: But why would they be after the Hand if no one knows what it does??
Raz-griff: We must assume that the Network DOES know. We can take no chances--
«A short cutscene shows Raz-griff lifting the cover with the Hand of Creation, and he picks it up. The scene then switches to the orbit around Protus, where the Alteon engages in a fierce battle with the Exo clawships.»
«Scene: LSS Alteon, The Bridge»
«A hologram appears on the screen.»
Naaseria: I am Naaseria, Queen of Exo. You will surrender your vessel to my Clawships, or I shall command your immediate destruction.
Amada: You will not intimidate me! Your Network was responsible for the death of my son! We will stand our ground until the end of time if we must!
Naaseria: Lorian, you are proof of the reputation of your world. But you have overstepped your bounds, coming out here into OUR universe. And you will all pay... dearly.
Amada: I'll see your threat, and I'll raise you 50!!
«A short cutscene then shows the Alteon continuing it's battle against the many Exo ships surrounding it, and the scene switches to the entrance to the museum in Protus.»
Celestra: Copy, Alteon -- I'm on the ground!!
«The cutscene shows an Exo ship arriving at Protus, and deploying multiple Exo troops to invade the museum. Celestra begins assaulting the ship, and a few shots fired causes the shuttle holding the Queen and Minister Raz-griff to lost stability. Celestra proceeds to strike the Exo ship which crashes to the ground and the Proteans counterattack by deploying some of their troops as well.»
Protean Guard: «You», your Queen and Minister Raz-griff have escaped to the Alteon! Now it is up to us to repel these invaders!
«You»: Let's crack a few shells!
Fight alongside a Protean! - A Protean guard will now battle by your side!
Fight by yourself!
Regardless of choice
4 BATTLES Protean Guard: We have driven off the last of the Exos, and your Alteon ship has repelled the Exo squadrons above!
Full Heal after the 2nd and 4th battle. See below for tiers.
«You»: Thanks for your help! I need to get back there, myself -- Can you spare a lift?
«A short cutscene shows a shuttle leaving the planet of Protean and entering the LSS ALteon.»
Pra'Mithia: It's good to see you escaped in one piece, «You»!
«You»: And you, too, Queen Pra'Mithia!
Pra'Mithia: It is only because of you and the Protean guards that I got back to the Alteon with the Hand of Creation. Admiral Amada managed to drive away the Clawships as well.
Pra'Mithia: Until we know more, I have decided that the Hand of Creation should remain in YOUR care. I have a feeling this gauntlet is as important as it is ancient...

MISSION DEBRIEFING Play again!
What happened today was quite terrible, but I was vindicated in my decision to have you accompany me to Protus. With your help we were able to keep the Hand of Creation out of the Network's hands (or claws, in this case!) as well as defend Protus from the attack.
Now that the Hand of Creation is in your possession for safekeeping, we must endeavor to learn what makes it so important to our enemies-- as well as how those enemies were able to know of the Hand's location!
Warp Guardian Tower!
Thanks to whackybeanz.
