Prologue

One year before...

The void of space. Emptiness. Darkness.

Light starts to break through, the rays of the sun eclipsing a colossal space station. A hum reverberates as solar panels adjust, aligning themselves. The station is shaped like a donut, with several rings, spanning the world’s largest cylinder shaped feat of engineering.

The light exposes country flags on the station, circling the words “Earth Station”, similar to the shape of the object it graces.
Spacecraft shudder to life, turning the station into an airport.

Station Corp, the company behind all the Stations in space, started their venture as early as the 2020s. At first it was just Earth’s Moon. But then, as we humans are, we got greedy.

Earth was dying because of us. But instead of finding a solution, we found it easier to pour billions and billions into jumping ship, instead of changing our lifestyles.
It wasn’t long until our Moon, too, became a resource, and nothing more.

Humans, surprisingly, came together to colonize our solar system. Each planet (including Pluto) had a station in orbit, named appropriately after them. Earth Station is the main hub, the Head Quarters of sorts. Resources are in constant flow between Earth, the Moon and Earth Station.

Colonies were being built on all the planets, with Mars being the only viable option after Earth. However, Mars was the only colony that had human inhabitants, the other planets? They had robots. These artificial beings help mine resources from all the planets, while running tests and determining estimates for when we could potentially survive on the surface.

Earth Station was no longer the utopia it was at first, however. Life on Earth mirrored aboard the Station, since we humans can never be at peace.
There was a constant fight over power, albeit silent. Residents were pushing for democracy. Station Corp was on the verge of collapse due to corruption, pathetic policies and everything else our governments do wrong.

The only way you were able to live on Earth Station was to either have a sought after skill, such as engineering or computer science, be a legacy of the founding members and employees of Station Corp, or just have the money.

There was one other way though. The youth had a chance in space if they possessed the right skills. This potential grants them immediate acceptance aboard Earth Station. However, you alone could be accepted, your family stays behind.
This turned into the norm among families still on the ground. Their kin had to excel in any of the required skills to have a shot at life.

This year, Earth Station is in the process of accepting their 19th group of kids. Their 19th herd of sheep, destined to a life of making other’s lives better instead of their own.
But this group was special, number 19. This was when the rebellion starts.

No more answering to a totalitarian government.
No more leaving innocent people behind.
No more exploitation to serve the rich and corrupt.

The system that worked for ages starts to develop cracks. A system that needed changing since it’s conception.

Our story starts before the chaos, one year before, in 2189.
