Caprion was an area of space believed to be "the origin of the primordial fireball" - the place where the Universe began.
During the Aloha's mission to Altair, they detected activity from Caprion. If they choose to investigate, they will find themselves pulled towards it. The captain will order to fire at it, but Dr. Nera Vivaldi says we can trust whatever's happening. If you follow the Captain's orders, the ship overtakes its own missile due to time acceleration effects and explodes. If you stop him from firing, you become a spirit at the beginning of the Universe who will one day inhabit a body on Earth. ("The Third Planet from Altair")
