Earth... a world forgotten

Story:

It has been years since the colonists thought of their home world.  No one remembers the old world as it was generations ago.  It is just a faint memory from stories told by the elders and the old books.  You can still see some of it in the things that were brought in the capsules:  the forgotten shpping crates, the forgotten tech amidst the other scraps from the shuttles.  Each of the factions have rebuilt their homes and started over on this alien world.  One-hundred-fifty years have passed since a barrage of highly volatile meteors rained down on the planet.  

At the time of the collapse, a few of Earth's greatest cities were prepared and  launched an evacuation effort.  A few of those shuttles reached this small planet in the Alpha Centauri star system, the closest to our own.  A new civilization has been reborn and a recent discovery of some native, abandoned technology has been reactivated.  This discovery may bring lost wealth and renewed growth to the new colony, but at what cost?

In the years since its discovery, the Nyeinians, a science and tech-centered group have been working to unveil the inner-workings of this device.  The have succeeded just days ago, but contact with the entire group has been lost.  During  the last few weeks of operation, several structures have appeared out of thin air all over the world. It is believed the science team had found a way to teleport matter through space.  The most peculiar of these is the ancient gardens at the landing site.  Any volunteers seeking to find out what happened to the science team should meet at the gardens at nightfall.
