Earth is in the middle of an energy crisis- resources are scarce and the future of humanity is uncertain. The NEVEC corporation has decided to send a primary wave of colonists to the distant planet E.D.N. III to research its abundance of Thermal Energy and see if it could help save the human race. But as soon as you land on E.D.N. III, it becomes apparent that there are cracks in NEVEC's story.
