Description: SCP-293-DE designates the wreck of a space ship that has crashed near the Lüneburg Heath on 09/12/2019. In its intact state, the object was presumably 107 m long, 50 m wide, and 30 m high. Vessel plans lead to the conclusion that it was oval-shaped, and featured several jet engines and weaponry. Studies of its materials are still being conducted, but it has been concluded that the materials used in its construction cannot be reproduced by any means known to the Foundation. Any writings in- and outside of the vessel have been composed in the ortothan alien language, and can therefore be translated by the Foundation. According to available information, SCP-293-DE appears to have been attacked during a reconnaissance mission, and as a result had to crash-land on Earth.

SCP-293-DE possessed a crew consisting of eleven humanoid life forms with consistently different appearances and genetic structures. The crew wore white and black patterned uniforms when recovered and appeared to have died partly from burns and partly from sudden blunt force. Insignias on their clothes identified them as members of the ortothan space-navy.

Discovery: SCP-293-DE has been discovered on the 09/12/2019 through the European Space Agency, while it still was in the process of falling. Spyware of the Foundation identified the vehicle as an extraterrestrial spaceship, and alerted the organization who, under the cover of geological investigations on an meteorite crash site, sealed off the perimeter. Following the event, involved members of the European Space Agency were amnesticized.The crash site was decontaminated first by MTF DE5-ℌ "Saubermänner"1 and MTF DE4-𝔚 "Seuchenkontrolle"2, in order to hinder the spread of extraterrestrial microorganisms, whereas MTF DE8-ℨ "Samariter"3 attempted to save survivors. However, only the crew's corpses and the ship's black box could be recovered. Using a maglev train, the cadavers were transported to Site-DE6 for further study, while the black box was moved to Site-DE23 of analyses.

According to decrypted data, SCP-293-DE was part of a Ortothan Coalition response squadron dispatched to a solar-system-based outpost on Saturn's moon Phoebe, after said outpost suddenly went silent. The mission was to fly to the base and to conquer it, if necessary. Further information can be extracted from Log 293-DE-023 which was recovered from the black box.

Currently, the Foundation is undecided about what the events that have transpired mean for human space travel, especially since humanity's space shuttles and satellites have not been bothered so far.
Meanwhile, measurements have revealed that inexplicable heat sources have appeared on several planets, moons, and asteroids inside the solar systems. Due to gathered data, defensive plans are currently being revised in case of a theianic invasion.
