Overview

A·nach·ro·nox (uh-NACK-ruh-nox). Poison from the Past [From anachronism: a thing chronologically out of place, esp. one from a former era in current setting + nox, from L. noxa, nocere harm; 187 A.C.: an abandoned alien city-planet floating inside the hollow sphere of Sender One -- so named after a strange electric virus killed the first explorers to land on its surface.]
