On the surface of the only planet of a star system in the anonymous part of a prosperous galaxy grew lushly vegetation, it was no match for the curious alone traveler whom tenaciously fight its way through the dense vegetation's roots and ferns. Clearing a path for itself with the help of a knife those blade evaporated and shattered into shards that quickly evaporated into thin air after every successful strikes against the vegetation, surrendering to the blade like butter being cut by a hot knife - in a matter of seconds, the blade quickly grew back to its normal shape from the handle's base like nothing have happened. The figure holds the knife with a firm grip in its only visible triactyl outside the large poncho grab it is wearing. It covers its whole upper body and the head with a hood, the furry legs and tail are barely visible under the also large skirt grab strapped around its hips. A headwear covering the whole face and head can be however seen shimmering of metal under the hood - in fact this one is wearing footwear in metal, too. From toes to teeth. A muffled radio chattering can be heard faintly inside the helmet as the figure works its through, and is responded by the individual accordingly with harsh-sounding whining and barking of different vocal pitches.
The individual finally reach to see a less dense, and burnt, vegetation. Fallen trees, stones and parts of trees are littered everywhere and smoke emerge from the still smoldering vegetation. With retracted tail in protection, the armored figure scans around the site as it navigates to the opposite direction the trees have fallen in, and sees a large crater, vapor and smoke is still emerging from the bottom. The figure now standing on ledge of the crater spies on it, and finds a large silver-golden cylindrical object embedded to the ground, surrounded by half-molten metal debris and parts. The figure exchanges few sentences with the helmet's radio chattering and looks in the sky before looking back down on the metal object, an object of interest for the figure. Three additional hands unveil from the poncho and removes it from its upper body, revealing more of the metallic outfit and the figure's four arms, the figure warps the garb around one of its second pair of arms. The figure shocks the knife, the blade falls off the handle and crumbles into pieces then vapor, in place of the blade constructs a pick resembling a ice pick. The figure jumps off the ledge into the crater and hacks the pick against the step slope and descends safely to the bottom evading loose cobblestones. Soon to a less step slope it releases the grip by detaching the pick from the handle and slowly brakes its momentum as the closer to the object it comes, more radio chatter makes its contact with figure who return with short responses as it slowly sneaks upon the object, and it makes its best to avoid pools of molten metal around the impact site. The object is roughly half the height of the figure. and is large as a car tire in diameter, the silver-golden surface is seemingly left unscratched despite the circumstances and it sweats in water and steam and molten metal boil around the base where it is embedded to the ground. The figure finish inspecting around and pulls out a metal rod and stabs it stuck in the ground a bit away from the object, pulls out another and walks to the opposite side and does the same, repeating until the object is surrounded by eight rods. The figure, now in a stance hinting that it is satisfied with its work and makes a new contact through the helmet's radio.
Few minutes later a roaring sound can be heard in distance, it gets stronger and stronger until an large flying vessel appears out of blue and halts, blocking out the sun while soaring over the crate, overhead of the figure whose head is fixed at it.
The strong light suspended to the roof fully illuminates the curiously looking cylinder lying on its side on the large bench in center of the dark room. Two alien lifeforms - one is a four-armed mammalian, the other is about slender and tall as the former, but it rather has chitin-like coat covering its whole body, they both are wearing large coats of rubber material in black with thick orange outlining - surround it and exchanges sounds similar to barking. They start inspecting on their each own side of the large object and remarks details in the same language as before; phonemes alike to whining and barking. None of them however seem to have nothing to be able to do something about it, so they proceed to inspect on each of the object`s ends.
The tall insecticide notices a detail, a large cap on the end, in a shape that strongly hints them that can unscrew it off using standard tools to their avail. One of them one step closer to a cart, those tabletop is full of tools organized in precise order, and grabs one of the cart`s ends and drags it closer to them, then picks up one of the tools; one resembling a large screwdriver. The inspect the cap and, with skepticism carefully forces the screwdriver`s tip into the cap`s slot. It fits - to both the black-coated engineers surprise and shock, it fits, uncannily, perfectly. They two with distributed look on their faces exchange eye contact. - The screwdrivers lets off with a mumble whirring and in two seconds, the cap comes off the object. Unveiling a rod-shaped cavity with a faint bright blue source of light shining inside.

OBJECT - DESCRIPTION
The object is a large and hollow cylinder made of ████████████████████, a claim in recovered file ████████████████████████, and is 2 meters in length and 50 centimeters in diameter. On the top end, the end where a cap can be found mounted in place and serves as the opening to a big cavity fit to store a portable datacore. The cavity is coated in soft anti-shock protective foam, the thickness is measured as 15 centimeters. Despite the circumstances upon recovery, it is reported that the object is in "unscratched, like factory-new" state.
OBJECT - NOTES
This object was first sighted in █████████ of ██████████████ in █████████████████ Galaxy whose path was estimated to be an direct crash route onto ████████ in system █████, same sector as mentioned above, no attempts were made to catch or neutralize object. As it was estimated to land into a completely desolate forested area. It was later probed by a nearby stationed explorer, ██████████████████████. He arrived on-site and assisted the recovery team to recover the object and deliver to station ████████████████, bringing him in as well. In fact the object is seemingly made of an advanced material of unknown origin, perhaps as what the recovered file ████████████████████████ implies, it is ████████████████████, an material difficult to produce, but has extremely favorable properties, specially in mining, hazardous environments - mostly interestingly, as an extremely resistant plating to be put on vehicles, such as space vessels. Besides, it has high melting point and is naturally silver-golden-colored.
In fact it contained a datacore upon recovery - to our surprise, its' data portions were using the same legacy format from 2900-2930 years ago. Besides that, it was only of a little hassle to configure our data recovery machine to work with the format.
It is also worth a note that the object was first detected to be larger and heavier than before when it was first detected in █████████ than how it was found on ████████, █████. According to transcript between explorer ██████████████████████ and the transport ship ███████████, superheated and molten metal was found on-site, right around the object. Our equipment and calculations has as well proven that the object is too small and too light to cause an impact 100 meter in diameter and 15 meter deep with the reported speed, it is however an odd fact that the shock wave from the impact wasn't of a strength we would believe, as it only knocked down - and burnt vegetation within 150-300 meter from center. Besides, the object was in fact used to be encapsulated in an another layer of construction and perhaps an engine used to push it forward to its destination; sufficient to say, which didn't survive the atmospheric entry and impact.
The object contained an portable datacore of unknown model or origin, but has data and partitions formatted using a legacy format from 2900-2930 years ago. Roughly few years before the extragalactic expedition. Namely: ██.
