You step from the shuttle onto the dessicated plateau surface. The icy dust of this world is lit by your shuttle, and the spotlights of the temporary dome your technicians have erected over a large chunk of Umbran wreckage, that has somehow survived its impact with the planet surface. You enter the dome and remove your environment suit. The wreckage has been broken apart in the search for usable data, and on a bench in the centre of the dome is treasure: the scorched remains of an Umbran hard drive, from which a brief message has been extracted:
A quite unique science fiction wiki
Galaxiki is a completely new kind of science fiction and fantasy wiki, as it's a complete galaxy with millions of stars, planets and moons that are all represented by wiki pages. It's a collaborative community website where all users can help to fill the galaxy with life.
A wiki is software that allows users to create, edit, and link web pages easily, and one of the best known wikis is Wikipedia.

One of the most interesting points is that your work doesn't have to be isolated. In general we'd like to follow common physical rules, but as this is a science fiction site some physical rules can be broken, and that's how it's allowed to travel faster than light in our galaxy. Which means that species from different planets and solar systems can meet, and users have to take care to keep the entire histories and stories consistent.
