Thus the store of candy was discovered by this tribe of primitives, who turned to trading these delicious snacks and grew wealthy while eating these delicious chocolate bars. However, their wealth attracted the eyes of various tribes and eventually led to brutal wars over control of them. Thousands perished.
I'm such a nerd that I have all of these irrelevant questions running through my head, like "Is that just an engine pod or the entire ship?", and "Are those 'Hall-effect' ion thrusters?", and "If the galactic economy is good enough for a candy company to afford such large-scale privately-owned transports, how is the economy still bad enough that marauder's would decide to attack a candy ship?". Also, based on the illustration on the side, it looks like Galaxy Yum candy bars are similar to 3 Musketeers bars. And seriously, given the low probability of a single engine pod randomly landing in an upright position like that, I'm guessing that the rest (or most/some of the rest) of the ship is under the mud.
Hmm, well, that is supposed to be the entire ship. I meant it to be like a small goods truck, but on a much bigger scale. For the rest of your queries, I don't have the answer for you because I never thought about it to that extent
