The action takes place in the distant future in a galaxy so old that for some inexplicable reason the stellar matter in it began to disintegrate.
The galaxy is inhabited by three highly developed civilizations using a kind of "superfuel" to move among the stars. Due to the so-called paradox of Hirschstern none of the spaceships using the superfuel ever managed to escape from the galaxy. In the beginning it encouraged the scientists to search for alternative ways of moving in space but as time went by it deprived all intelligent beings of the hope of salvation beyond the galaxy.
Snake-like Verdans, insect-like children of the Hive and upright walking members of the Unity – they were all trapped and filled with horror as they watched the stars die one by one destroying the exquisite multiculture that had been developing for millennia.
Since the galactic catastrophe was accompanied by a number of unexplained phenomena, intelligent races suddenly turned to religious teachings that seemed to have lost their meaning. Here and there the inhabitants started to riot against the centralized government that was unable to cope with what was happening. Pirates, looters and bandits became part of reality which was getting increasingly dreadful day by day. Whole planets were overtaken by hysteria and madness.
Nobody knows who spread the rumor about the Transition – a loophole allowing to escape from the dying galaxy bypassing the paradox of Hirschstern. Driven by last hope, the governments funded the initiative to search for the Transition. Thousands of scientific and reconnaissance drones as well as hundreds of scout and military ships were sent into space.
They tried to find a way to save the entire galaxy. Many had disappeared, many returned unsuccessful. Extreme despair and lack of actual results exacerbated old conflicts leading Verdan, the Unity and the Hive to war and further complicating the efforts to find the Transition.
You are the captain of the last spaceship sent with the mission to find the Transition. The resources provided to you are extremely scarce and certainly not enough for the challenging task you are to fulfill. Let's be honest, your chances for success are very low but nothing is impossible.
