When crews on the first two
interstellar missions confront the same
confounding mystery, their dispute over what it
means will threaten the future of humanity.

Thirty years after the last war, in a world of
plentiful energy, Lunar and Mars bases, and a
global federation of nations, an international
crew of exceptional men and women sets out on
humanity’s first interstellar mission. Their
goal: to explore the closest potentially habitable
planet in the Alpha Centauri star system. But what
they find when they get there raises intriguing
questions surrounding our place in the universe,
our past, and our future.

The stakes become elevated by the unexplained
presence of another ship from the solar system, a
ship with weapons. When the two crews interpret
the perplexing find on the surface quite
differently, it brings them into a conflict that
threatens to lead to a nuclear showdown.

They may be over 4 light years from Earth, but the
implications could not hit closer to home.

And they are too far away for two-way

More than just another space saga, this wild, hard
sci-fi ensemble drama (with a touch of romance)
digs deep into human nature and the animal
instinct that keeps us from elevating our
existence. The only question remaining: is
humanity doomed to repeat its mistakes, or are we
ready to take the next crucial step?
