this was the Basic translation of the Colony's term Ub Ruur. It described the crashlanding of the starship Tachyon Flier on the planet Yoggoy in the Unknown Regions, and the Colony's discovery of Raynar Thul's still-living body inside. Thul was rescued by the Yoggoy and given a chance to recuperate, and eventually became the first true Joiner. The wreckage of the Tachyon Flier was preserved by the Lizil hive for posterity. Unknown to much of the Colony, Lomi Plo and Welk also survived the crash, and managed to create their own Dark Side hive of insectoids. The site of The Crash became something of a sacred place to the Colony's hives, since the event marked the beginning of their expansion.
