A Star Destroyed. A World Lost in Fire.
My name is Jansa Kell of the Spacefarer Caste.
A devastating blast wave of solar energy is headed for Helios Prime. Moments before impact, I'm rescued by my daughter, Sarys—a military pilot who came back for me against orders. When she loses all contact with the military, we have no one to rely on but each other.
We don't know what's happened to the leaders of our world or its military. Have they abandoned us, or like so many others, have they perished?
Alien mercenaries hunt us, but we don't know why. Some of our planet's survivors are spared, but we're not sure if it's a trap to ensnare more of us or if they're targeting us specifically. As danger closes in, we must escape and follow the trail wherever it leads.
We can't have a future until we know why our true enemy wants to kill us. With every move we make, they seem one step ahead. Our world is as dead as our shattered star, but we have to find out the truth and preserve our world's legacy. If we falter, I fear they'll kill us too.
Hunted by enemies who fear our strength. We're taking the fight to them.
My name is Sarys Kell of the Spacefarer Caste.
I was a military Lieutenant and starship pilot, before our star exploded. It was no accident—our people were murdered and our world of Helios Prime was destroyed. I lost contact with our leadership and I don't know their fate. I just know I have to help our people survive, no matter the cost.
We've learned who was responsible for the atrocities: the Acadian Technocracy, with the aid of K'zeran mercenaries in their employ. We can't allow the Acadians to do this to anyone else, and they must face justice for their crimes.
Now in hiding, we've established a small colony on the trading world of Phinea Alpha, while we plan our next move. Some of us possess latent psionic abilities. My mother, Jansa, has developed hers. She can influence time in small ways, extracting objects and information from the past. It's helped our cause, but she can't bring back the dead or restore the world we've lost. We need to play to our strengths, and gain allies and resources if we're to have any chance of success.
My mother has offered to teach me to access my psionic abilities, so I can better aid our fledgling rebellion. We know now that they won't leave us alone, and we must fight in order to save our people. We would stand no chance against the military might of their fleet, but we have something they don't have: the overwhelming need to survive, righteous fury, and cunning born of desperation. We will find a way because we have to.
