In a race against a catastrophic event, nations band together, devising a plan to ensure the survival of humanity in outer space. But the complexities of human nature, coupled with unforeseen challenges, threaten the intrepid pioneers, until only a handful of survivors remain. Five thousand years later, their progeny - seven distinct races now three billion strong - embark on yet another audacious journey, to an alien world utterly transformed by cataclysm and time: Earth.
