Left behind on a world doomed for disaster, a handful of survivors struggle to forge a new civilization. A better civilization.
The strangers came in one ship from a distant solar system. No one on Earth laid eyes on them for they communicated from a fair distance above the planet and didn't show themselves. Earth was doomed, the visitors told the planet's inhabitants. On a collision course with a large space body speeding in their direction. Scientists searched the skies, but found nothing. Still, the visitors persisted with their message of impending disaster and offered their aid.
They would transfer those humans who wished to be saved. To another planet, a waiting ship, another dimension. The exact destination is no longer known. And when the world didn't end in a fiery explosion, as the visitors had insisted it would, those few left on Earth puzzled about it for a while. Had the visitors been wrong? Was this a plot by the aliens to enslave humanity? The remaining humans waited for them to return, the ones that had been transferred so that they could rebuild or the aliens to reveal their purpose for deceiving mankind.
Eventually those left behind found each other, scattered all over the globe. They came together to form a new civilization, and this is their story.
