Amadas, who commanded the flagship which may have been Raleigh's ton vessel Bark Raleigh , was a member of Raleigh's official household, where he may have studied instrumental navigation and related mathematics under Thomas Harriot.
Barlowe, commander of the other vessel possibly a smaller sailboat named the Dorothy , had become one of Raleigh's "owne servants" in Ireland as early as After sailing through the Canary Islands and the Caribbean, the two ships reached the mainland American coast on 4 July They sailed northward until they reached an "entrance, or River issuing into the Sea.
The exact location is difficult to determine because of centuries of change in the barrier islands. After anchoring, the explorers went ashore in boats to view and take possession of the "lande next adjoyning" for Queen Elizabeth I and their patron, Raleigh.
Barlowe's journal provides an almost lyrical description of the land and its exploration. In addition to extolling the natural bounty and beauty of the coastal region perhaps too favorably , Barlowe sympathetically portrayed the Algonquian Indians whom the Englishmen soon encountered and with whom they almost immediately began to trade.
Barlowe also tried to give a rough idea of the geography of the region as best he and his companions could understand it from the Indians, who called the area "Wingandacoa. After perhaps as long as six weeks exploring and trading, the expedition returned to England, taking with it two local Indians: the Croatoan Manteo and the Roanoke Wanchese. The wide-ranging information acquired by Amadas and Barlowe, as well as what they learned from their association with Manteo and Wanchese, gave Raleigh and his associates sufficient encouragement to continue their plans to establish the first English colony in America in Barlowe, Arthur.

In the 24th century the exploitation of the Earth's ecosystem has created an environment so toxic that mass extinctions have wiped out nearly half of its animal population. Most of the remaining fauna, save humans, have suffered horrible mutation. Aided by the benevolent and technologically superior alien race, the Yma, humanity begins to repair their ravaged world while simultaneously learning more about the universe around them. When an unmanned Yma probe discovers evidence of alien life on another planet, the titular "expedition" is sent to investigate.

Even the feared Arrowtongues are vulnerable to its swooping attacks. Bearing a huge, curved nasal-lance, they are almost playful in their methods of dispatching prey tossing their victims in mid-air from one to another until it is completely drained of fluids. I really like the shapes and patterns on orcas and that admiration found its way into this piece. It was an early idea to do an aerial painting — a tip of my hat to all the aviation art I enjoy so much.
