Shimari's Disaster - 30 turns ago
High Reaches' queen had died, leaving no heir. Kahrain's Senior Queen was old, and had just laid a queen. A deal was made - whoever's candidate Impressed the queen could have her. Kahrain had a powerful HAD. High Reaches searched high and low - and they found Shimari. She was weak compared to Kahrain's HAD, and they sought to change that using genetic engineering - on a teenager.
It worked, and all too well. Shimari's Disaster started the second Shimari stepped onto the Sands and decided to hate them all. Stones, called from the depths of space, would forever alter the creatures standing there. Their children would have mutants. And as the golden queen hatched, Shimari struck the queen with a mutating stone, casting the queen and her Chosen into decades of despair as their hatchling hatched out the wrong colors - and were killed because of it. For nearly thirty turns less than half og golden Aleranth's clutches survived.
And then two mutated eggs were stolen by High Reaches. And out hatch the Emerald Queen and the Aquamarine who would Fly her.
Distant Future - Now
Two Weyrs, two queens - one Star
Now the Emerald has clutched, and no one is sure what will come of it. Aleranth clutches as well, and this time, she will not allow her children to be destroyed. But up in the Sky, a new, green colored planetoid has appeared. And only two in all of Pern know the danger it will cause. Shimari, down in the caves of the whers, watches and waits for a new disaster to strike - the finale to the one she began so long ago. And in the waters, near Kahrain, there is Roger's Cove, where the younger generation of pirates plan a dreadful plot that will bring Kahrain to an uproar.
