The Story

Humanity’s constant abuse has finally rendered our planet into an inhospitable wasteland. Not much time goes by before we stand on the brink of extinction—the damage can’t be undone. With all options exhausted, the most powerful governments join forces in one last stroke for survival: a one-way mission to the stars to search the vastness of space indefinitely until someday finding a new place to call ‘home.’

A long stretch, seemingly impossible.

But surely worth the try.

Three generation spaceships are built: Destiny, Valhalla, and Goliath, each one fully suited to sustain human life for as long as the mission might take. Millions are left behind as the fleet departs from Earth with only a small fraction of the total human population.

Years pile up into decades, and then centuries. The dream of finding a second home dwindle more and more as new generations of explorers are born aboard the starships, and the previous ones pass away taking their legacy with them. That place known as Earth is now just a word shoved deep into the oldest of history books. But finally, after traveling millions and millions of miles for over two centuries, and having reached the Alpha Centauri system, a light of hope breaks through the black, silent void of space. A distress signal from an unknown source reaches the fleet—a sign that, after all, we might not be alone in the universe.

Now, the only thing left to do is to find out if that will at last lead humanity to safe harbor, or, somehow, to its long-delayed demise.
