5th November 2068. A hole opened in the sky. A perforation in the atmosphere too great to reverse. Crops were scorched as daylight became deadly. Humanity fled in all directions, hysterical and in search of refuge. No one was safe.
Governments dispersed. The powerful bunkered underground, and from their buried control rooms called upon old unions to re-establish once fruitful alliances. All calls went unanswered.
Under the guise of E.X.O. Incorporated a fleet of vessels, repurposed from space tourism craft, were developed and produced by Earth’s towering Big Tech superpowers, with the advertised aim of transporting those who could pay to hospitable exoplanets. Consumers scrambled to the boarding stations on what was dubbed ‘Evacuation Day’, and those that boarded trusted in the corporation’s design.
They could not know their salvation was a ruse, for their hope and fear was all consuming.
All but a select few would be jettisoned to float among the debris of the Baedeker Stream, as litter upon the stars.
