Five hundred years after the historic Apollo 11 moon landing, mankind has finally
conquered the solar system—now called Terrae Solaris. Diverse nations of peoples have emerged throughout the planets,
moons, and asteroids. Colonies are found wherever life is remotely possible. As technology continues advancing, the human
race soon prepares to step out into the stars.
If only mankind
can get past itself.
The solar system is still a vast expanse.
The formidable distance between planets and the unfriendly habitat of space has created cultures of people as alien to one
another as anyone can imagine. Distrust and intolerance characterize the international mood. As technology continues its mad
progression, Terrae Solaris is quickly becoming a much smaller place. Local disputes, regional conflicts, and aspiring tyrants
threaten to destabilize Terrae Solaris.
Enter four enthusiastic, young
adults living in Earth States—the only remnant of the culture that had given birth to space exploration: Michael Gillen,
Kate DeCarreau, Tom Andrews, and Kara Ricci.
