The Diamond Incident was an event regarding the colony ship "Diamond", which used the Dimensional Drive to enter the previously unexplored Euriper Universe. when the ship arrived, it became clear that the laws of physics there were more different that what was thought at the time, and the ship broke down. the laws of physics also prevented the reproduction of cells, causing humans and other cell-based life forms onboard to slowly die, as their bodies could not regenerate. slowly, food ran out, and other colonists also died out. the ship was recovered by more advanced probes later, and almost all colonization companies switched to using probes to explore universes.the ones that did not do the same quickly went bankrupt, as all colonists preferred the safer option of their competitors.
