Thirty years before the sun exploded, the ship set course for the Celanon system. The pilot set the course, then got into a stasis unit himself. Eighty one years later, the computer detected entry into the Celanon system, and automatically woke the ship’s crew from stasis. Finding a hospitable planet, the ship set down and the crew awoke the colonists. Stepping out of the ship for the first time in 80 years, the colonists were greeted by a lush green planet that looked nearly identical to their home. After setting up a colony and getting things settled down, the scientists went to recover the embryos and start restoring the Doyielian population. Scientists were horrified to learn that during the flight, two of the three embryonic stasis units had failed, killing 2/3 of the embryos before they even left their own star system. The third stasis unit was intact however, and nearly 98% of the embryos survived implantation. In the span of 3 years, the planet’s population tripled, and the Doyielian society was happy on their new planet. Several years after the population started to stabilize, planetary sensors detected a ship entering the atmosphere. Not being entirely sure how to deal with this potential threat, defense forces were scrambled, and guided the ship to land just outside Celanon city. A representative from Valathor, an inhabited nearby planet, wished to commence diplomatic relations with Celanon. Both planets were happy to work together, and within months, a joint research and manufacturing project began on the nearby planet Pelerion. Less then a century later, the joint research team discovered hyperspace technology, and Valathor and Celanon learned that they were not alone in the universe.
The Doyielians are a peaceful people, content to ignore and be ignored by other galactic powers. Some of the younger members of society leave the world to pursue greater adventure, although most remain on the planet for their entire life.
