A thousand years ago Civilization collapsed. The basic stuff that kept people goin failed and our species was cast into what’s bein' called a post-industrial stone-age or The Fall.
It’s the year 3100 and we’re back in space.
There were colonies all over the solar system that got left alone when civilization went khokh up. Whole societies were instantly cut off from the rest of the Universe and left to their own devices. And it's funny the things people get up to during a power outage. Imagine a power outage that lasted for a thousand years. Things get ugly.
We’re the Human Recconection Project. Our job is to find these societies and protect ‘em from The Corporation. Or themselves.
Our leader is Isra Jicarillo. She’s the strong quiet sort. She’s got a mind like a steel trap, by which I mean it’s likely to leave you bloody and screamin' if you step wrong.
Our medic is Althea Fallon. She's got a soft spot, but don't think that she is some weak, fragile little thing. See, because the minute you think that, she's already made off with your wallet.
Cronus just joined. Don’t know 'bout him yet. He’s brilliant but as shifty as a spaceship hitting sky.
And I’m Viekko Spade. Warrior of the Martian Steppes. At least I used to be. Hit a bit of a rough patch recently. But I can still handle a gun.
These worlds, they ain’t seen nobody from Earth for a thousand years and they ain’t always so keen when we show up.
But we’re comin anyway...
