In the near future, humanity renews itself. Decades of stagnation and illness are overcome and progress leaps forward once more. Economies revive and nations look again to the stars as humanity rediscovers the urge to reach beyond the confines of planet Earth.
Collectively, Earth’s nations and people set a course for the exploration of the solar system and exploitation of the resources it has to offer. Together, they set forth the Edict.
The Edict is a licence for the most capable and ambitious adventurers to journey into space under the mandate of harvesting extra-terrestrial resources for the enrichment of the people of Earth. Five organisations race out into the solar system to discover and capitalise on the raw materials buried within the planets, moons, asteroids, and debris beyond Earth’s heavens.
Who among them will gain ascendency in a race to establish a commercial empire in answer to the Edict?
