Precursor Orbital Arches




Halo: Cryptum


In Cryptum, Greg Bear described the exotic world of Charum Hakkor, a place once dominated by the Precursors, but since occupied by the humans and San 'Shyuum from the human-San 'Shyuum Alliance. There they lived in the shadow of the ever present Precursors structures, built with an advanced technology that rendered them near-indestructible to all but one kind of destructive technology, that of the Forerunner's Halo Array.
The book heavily implies that these structures stretched from the surface of the planet up into orbit, massive shapes that eclipsed the human and San 'Shyuum structures built on and around them. Bornstellar describes the lesser structures as similar to "ivy growing on great trees", giving an impression of their strong visual presence.

Extra Credit:

Depict the human and San 'Shyuum structures built onto the orbital arches.
