Their ancestors, chosen from all over the world for skills necessary to colonize a habitable planet, had been the fortunate ones to escape Earth’s devastation.   A century later, their descendents continue the journey.

The harvest had been bountiful this year.  All of the carefully-bred embryos had successfully reached birth and, as was their annual custom, the colonists filled the great arena, feasting and dancing in celebration of the newest generation.
