Overview
The year is 2066. Earth is exhausted by centuries of industrial gluttony, and widespread resource depletion. Earth has been reduced to a grim grey dot, limping through the cosmos on its final breath. But, when an ancient SOS is detected in the far reaches of our galaxy from an unknown entity, a long-forgotten scientist doesn't just see this as an opportunity for first contact — but a fast track to potential success, and immortality within the pages of Earth's history. Against the better judgement of his assistant Marcus - Dr Burke responds, setting in motion a series of events that will ripple throughout the course of human history. As the public becomes aware, anti-government factions are born within the abandoned metro system of Washington DC. Lead by Amelia Rhane, the Resistance begins to hatch its own plans for the arrival of the Nimerah, while General Caster seeks alien technology and complete control over the country. Will responding to the SOS represent the dawn of a new era, or the harbinger for something else?
