During an age of rapidly dwindling energy resources and greedy corporate expansion, Earth receives a warning from a not too distant star system – We are aware of your existence, and we will end you.
The colossal mining vessel Ambition undergoes a militarized refit and is sent from the Sol System to confront the alien threat of Pegasi 51. A voyage at near light speed encounters catastrophic events halfway there. Rebellion and mutiny break out, and the ship’s main propulsion drive is sabotaged as a result. An estimated seventy-year voyage stretches into a seven century odyssey. All communication to and from home has been severed, and the civilization waiting for them ahead has remained ominously silent.
Captain Sulafat Ly, Ambition’s thirtieth (and likely last) commander, leads this final generation of weary travelers into a hostile star system, ill-prepared, and far too inexperienced to confront what awaits them.
The seven-hundred-year journey has ended. It’s time for war.
