Jedha
The ships arrive in the extremities of the Jedha system and check around for potential hostiles, traps, life, and any number of things.  The HUD indicates that Jedha is actually the moon of the second planet orbiting the sun, NaJedha.  There are six other planets beyond NaJedha, including three minor gas giants, two of which are in opposing concentric orbits, and two massive gas giants closer in.  The last planet is a small ball of frozen methane far beyond the last gas giant.  It has a slightly acircular orbit.

As the ships' sublight drives bring them past the giants toward NaJedha, scanners begin to pick up strange energy readings on both the moon, Jedha, and the planet.  The moon is arid, barren, and of no significant distinction in the whole of the galaxy.  The planet, however, is made of pink crystal all the way through.

"Captain, I am picking up faint life signs on the planet and the moon.  The energy signature down there is distorting the readings so I cannot determine the nature of the life."  Ayce's text-comm pauses from time to time as if the signal is getting delayed.  The contextual integrity algorithms correct the sketchy transmission, but it's something of note.

"Thanks Ayce. We talkin' a lot of fuzzy signals, or a few, or what? Particularly, on the moon".

"Hard to discern, Captain.  It appears to be no more than five on the moon, all within 100 klicks of each other.  On the planet, the crystals are creating a ghost echo that makes it impossible to calculate.  There could be ten or ten thousand.  No more than that."

"What do you think, captain? Check the moon first or the planet?"

"Definitely the moon first. Ayce, find us a landing zone. Everyone else, get ready to breach atmosphere".
