The Riverside was an experimental ship, modified war surplus, owned by the Metisian Republic. In 434 IE, the Republic Colonization Bureau (RCB) asked JT to fly her on a supply run to a planetary survey as a shakedown cruise. JT flew solo, only his passenger Petrie aboard. However, the team failed to account for two predatory species, the so-called “flying basketballs” and an unclassified species of kaiju. Their attacks killed several personnel, fatally damaged the Riverside, and stranded JT and the survivors. The Compact vessel Chief Iron Cloud rescued the survivors.
