Change Everything You Know About The Future

In the 23rd century mankind had finally travelled beyond the confines of Earths solar system and made contact with intelligent extraterrestrials. New forms of atomic propulsion has finally made space exploration to far distant worlds possible. During the Andromeda’s maiden voyage its Einstein-Rosen (ER) drive is tested successfully. Any vessel equipped with an ER drive is capable of crossing the galaxy in days by travelling through self-generated wormholes. The ER drive was designed by the child science genius Ntron Zepethar. Fifteen years earlier the starship Leviathan (with Zepethar aboard and propelled by his first version of an ER drive) disappeared on its maiden voyage. As the only other vessel equipped with an operational ER drive the Andromeda is reassigned to the Leviathans rescue mission. The Andromeda’s crew locates the crashed Leviathan on Theta-25L, a desolate planet 45,000 light years from Earth. Whilst attempting to contact the Leviathan the Andromedas captain is killed. This untimely tragedy imposes the captaincy on Commander Jane Altaire. After fifteen years on Theta-25L, Zepethar is the sole survivor of the Leviathans crew. When Commander Altaire begins searching for answers to the Leviathan’s demise it soon becomes apparent both Zepethar and Theta-25L harbour terrifying secrets…
