mythical species of magma core dwelling beings that invade and infest a planet and eventually lead to the destruction of the planet they infest. According to galactic legends the Children of the Deep are an Old race of sentient beings that evolved into a planet-eating infestation. The tunnel system of Winston Planet is believed to be made by Children of the Deep. An expedition to Fiery Hot led by Dr. Martha Masters was interrupted after the Explorer Ship was attacked and destroyed by pirates, but there on Planet Fiery Hot a magma dwelling life form was discovered. The planet is far in the Spinward sector (bordering at the Downward Sector ) and in the least explored region of the M-0 Galaxy and the furthest away from Union territory. A second expedition has yet to be made.
