PRELIMINARY SURVEY REPORT
LAPIS LAZULI: FACET 3Y6M CUT-528
TERRAFORM COMPANY 16
YELLOW DIAMOND COLONIES
GLOBAL AVG. TEMPURATUE: 14°C
AXIAL TILT: 27°
PLANETARY YEAR: 1.7 DECIMAL YEARS
PLANETARY DAY: 32 DECIMAL HOURS
NOTE: For the sake of brevity, PLANET K of SECTOR H3 will be referred
to as PLANET H3K hereafter.
PLANET H3K contains a plethora of resources. According to
estimates, the potential kindergarten output from this planet
alone could contribute 16% to the overall population within the
next 7000 decimal years.
H3K is inhabited by organic lifeforms. If we are to exterminate
them we must take care that we do so with minimal damage to the
planet’s crust and the minerals therein.
Persistent low-pressure systems as well as isolated thunderstorms
were noted during our surveys. This may prove hazardous during
the initial stages of colonization depending on what point in the
planetary year that Yellow Diamond decides to colonize.
H3K is abundant in raw materials. Peridots and Lapis Lazulis in my
company have both noted that H3K could potentially possess more than
enough materials to produce gems, ships, weapons and structures.
According to estimates, PLANET H3K’s abundance could stand to benefit
more than this colony alone. The climate of H3K is unpredictable and
potentially violent. It is recommended that preventative measures be
taken during initial stages of colony development to minimize the
potential impact of any natural occurrences. There is no doubt that
this planet would be a valuable asset to the Yellow Diamond Colonies
and the empire.

I can’t remember a time I’ve surveyed a planet quite this potent.
It’s almost unreal! To say that we could get a lot out of this
would be a gross understatement. The kindergarten outputs here
would be incredible and with so much raw material to mine, many
of these resources could be used in the building of other
colonies where materials are scarcer.
Assuming that most of the materials here would be used for gem
production, the kindergartens here could easily produce approximately
133 billion gems over the course of the next 7000 decimal years (avg.
19 million gems per decimal year)
QUOTE: PERIDOT FACET 4T6N CUT-2XJ| RECORDED 86.7.12413 19:65
Based on the samples that your lazulis unearthed, I’ve compiled a
rough estimate of this planet’s potential overall kindergarten
output. This is assuming that most of these resources will be
going towards the production of gems. […] Obviously, this will be
up to the discretion of Yellow Diamond. Note that these numbers
are rough estimates and will be subject to change as we move
forward in the colonization process.
I’ve put together a table based off the estimates provided by PERIDOT
FACET 4T6N CUT-2XJ. As mandated by the Diamond Authority, native
elements have been excluded.
AVG. PER DECIMAL YEAR
After considering the materials needed for our kindergarten outputs,
we found that there would still be an excess of raw materials at our
disposal. More than enough to supplement the H3K colony and then some.
QUOTE: PERIDOT FACET 2F5L CUT-2XM| RECORDED 80.7.12413 8:52
To put it simply, this planet has too much [expletive]. Okay okay
but all joking aside, this was a much-needed find. Let me put
this way: we could produce all the gems we could and still have
enough materials for 800 kindergartens, 600 spires, and 100,000
military vehicles. I’m not even exaggerating! This is awesome!
PLANET H3K would be of great use to the empire long after the colony
has been established. As excess materials could continuously be
exported to other colonies for centuries to come.
QUOTE: LAPIS LAZULI FACET 3I3M CUT-482| RECORDED 89.7.12413 5:40
So, there’s a whole lot of creatures here living underground. We
keep finding them when we turn over the ground. I’m guessing
we’re gonna want to exterminate these [expletive] without
compromising the materials within the crust’s interior. Normally
that wouldn’t be an issue but much of the organic life here
appears to be subterranean. This means that many of our…”
broader” extermination tactics would be pointless and
Members of my company continue to encounter subterranean life on this
planet. Since much of this life is hidden beneath the surface, there
is no way to get a real estimate on how many of these lifeforms there
actually are. Consequently, extermination may prove difficult but far
from impossible. Some of my colleagues have recommended driving them
out of their holes and vaporizing them once they get to the surface.
However, this could prove tedious and time consuming. Others have
recommended flooding their tunnels as a quick and effective means of
wiping them out.
In any case, underground vaporization is not recommended as this could
cause undue damage to the minerals that we intend to mine.
Upon landing on the surface of PLANET H3K, we immediately encountered
moderate thunderstorms and turbulent winds. We continued to encounter
storms like this throughout our survey process.

These storms are bad but for now they’re nothing we can’t handle.
Though I will be honest, there’s no way we can adequately gauge
how much of a threat they’ll pose in the time allotted to us.
Look, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we don’t have
enough lazulis or enough time to adequately survey this planet’s
climate. My colleagues and I have noted persistent low-pressure
areas all throughout the western hemisphere and parts of the
eastern hemisphere. […] They could be nothing or they could turn
into a whole lotta something later on. There’s no way we can know
as of now.
As my colleagues have noted, the biggest obstacle we may face in
colonizing this planet are the storms it could potentially produce.
The thunderstorms that we have encountered thus far have been
moderate, averaging wind speeds of 90 kilo-units per hour. Preliminary
terraforming such as synthetic rain shadows and alterations in the
axial tilt could offset the threat but many have expressed concern
over the atmospheric propensity for persistent low-pressure areas all
throughout the planet.
As an asset, PLANET H3K is invaluable. The outputs would certainly be
plentiful and provide a much-needed boost to the overall productivity
of our colonies. The subterranean life will be a nuisance but nothing
that our companies can’t handle. It would be good if we could spend
more time here and get a more accurate idea of the potential threats
posed by the climate. As of right now, we lack the resources, gem
power, and time to take adequate stock of these threats, particularly
regarding how they could manifest in later seasons.
