|In the year 3503, on a dying planet in a galaxy not unlike our own, came the tale of a people that defied all odds. Facing sure extinction, as the core of their planet threatened to destroy them all, they raced to finish the most ambitious project they had ever faced. A massive space vehicle capable of evacuating the entire population in the hopes that a new home could be found, somewhere, out there, one day.
In the end, that race was won, and the ship launched with mere seconds left, outracing the resulting outpouring of death and destruction by mere kilometers, leaving the only home they'd ever known behind as it blasted apart.
What was to become of them, however, is a tale for another day.
