Pollux 3 (third planet orbiting the Pollux star in the constellation
of Gemini) has been classed as potentially habitable. Before settlers arrive
there the scientists must know everything possible about the planet. Its
atmosphere, climate, fertility and other factors which will determine the
ease with which human life can survive. Other factors must also be known,
such as predators and other life forms - that's where you come in.
Mappers are technically illegal under one 2582 Planetary Exploration
Act which states "... and no person shall cause disturbance directly or
indirectly to the planet or its inhabitants and shall not enter the planet's
atmosphere without said planet being passed as habitable by law."
A Mapper is an explorer paid by institutions and large companies
to obtain the more dangerous or difficult facts about a planet. Although
illegal the government often turns a blind eye to such illegitimate explorations
due to the population pressure for new habitation.
As a Mapper you are to explore the planet of Pollux 3, or at least
your assigned sector, and bring back certain samples given in the specimen

Known as Darter.
Cornicus (small leaved)
This plant is, as far as known, completely non-hostile and in
fact edible. Previous explorers have claimed it seems to give
strength but these claims have not been scientifically proven
due to lack of samples.
Faimner (medium leaved)
Little is known of this plant except that the outspread
roots appear to grab hold of any nearby moving objects. Further
examination so far impossible.
Known as Tangle Plant.
This small fungus is moss-like in appearance and is assumed
