The year is 2188. More than a century ago, the first habitable extra-solar body was discovered. This planet promised to be a beacon of hope for a warring civilization. But a bad omen was cast over that discovery when the first colony ship departing the new planet was lost, disappearing into what scientists now call a Gravity Negative Point (G-neg). Lost were many of Earth's greatest scientific minds, along with more than one hundred families, and all of the specimens and supplies needed to begin life on an alien world.
