Overview

Syohn is a story about hope for a new beginning, betrayal, incredible hardship as well as love and perseverance. Six thousand colonists on the SH-15 Exodus are pirated and sent off into deep space to die. The planet where the Exodus is not very "user friendly" to humans and there is a native creature that makes life a living hell for the survivors. The colonists are faced with some difficult decisions, some that go against generations of taboo, in order to have a chance at all.

Description

Starhope 2100 was the project that saved the world from political, social and economic meltdown. But it came at a cost. Personal freedom. The new government was not a democracy. The world’s new government, controlled by Neo-Puritans, got the world running again after the United States and China were caught weaponizing genetic research. Starhope 2100 was a global initiative to put a colonyship into space by the year 2100. To that end, each nation was assigned certain components to supply for the project, eliminating competition and allowing all nations to prosper. The Neo-Puritans were an amalgamation of the world’s remaining religious leaders. Once in power they forced a ban on all genetic research, claiming the world’s ills were punishment for man doing God’s work. The Colonyship Exodus was the fifteenth such vessel sent out, with six thousand people in coldsleep, to carry humanity to a new world, a planet circling Ross 154. But something went terribly wrong. The ship crashed on a planet with too much gravity, too little air, and a native creature that quickly developed a taste for human meat. Now the survivors have to make some incredibly difficult decisions if they are to have any chance at all to create a colony.
