A fourth Dawn Sister appears in the sky. Starsmiths at Landing are the first to notice it. Shortly after the fourth light appears, a freak Threadfall terrorizes the southern Weyrs. The next day, a small craft descends from the new Dawn Sister - the new star is the Intrepid, an exploration vehicle, sent to inspect the long-forgotten colony on P.E.R.N.12 years ago -
After a year of research, most of the team from the Intrepid depart, leaving behind only a skeleton research crew consisting of a small biogenetics team and a few crew members who wish to stay. These are quartered at Fort Weyr. The genetics team is allowed access to dragon clutches for 'research' purposes. They inform the dragonriders that in a few years another ship will be sent.11 years ago -

The Weyrs decide to follow through with the development of a new Weyr and a site is chosen in the mountains a two days' flight from Fort.
