Input data to my storage banks, and I will synthesise reward output across all realities. A range of data is of utility to the Space Anomaly. Today, do you wish to contribute to TRADE / COLLECTION, EXPLORATION or DESTRUCTION?

Thank you! You have selected EXPLORATION.
Today's directive is to navigate to undiscovered worlds. Overviews of the ecosystems, terrain formations, and natural resources from an array of planets will greatly augment Master Polo's geographical archives.
