Description

Three space explorers arrive on a new planet to find the hungry, desperate faces of a conquered civilization. These people are human, intelligent and aware of space travel. Why are they dressed in rags? Why isn't anyone allowed to own a tool, or medicine? What happened to their cities and culture? The chilling answer comes from the six-meter alien with smoke-colored armor and polished fangs, and he does not come in peace.

’Rescue planet?’

Sure. One of our moons gets an ELE? We’ll need a place to put the refugees.

Last extinction-level event happened two centuries ago.

Sure, but it’s possible. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst. Chase tapped a button on his control board. Strap in, hitting atmo in another minute.
