"Adrift in the divide between galaxies and surrounded by the vast emptiness of the intergalactic void, the Tantalus Cluster is the only home humanity has ever known.

The Tantalus Cluster lies in the intergalactic void, four thousand light years from the perimeter of its parent galaxy, and after centuries of reckless colonisation and a violent interstellar war, the delicate ecosystem of the Cluster has begun to collapse, and humanity is gripped by poverty and famine.

Desperate and facing extinction, humanity’s only hope is a strange nebula that has suddenly appeared beyond the edge of the cluster. It’s shifting clouds may hide a source of salvation for the people of Tantalus, but time is running out.

Our story follows the men and women of the Avalon Exploratory Initiative, a daring mission launched across the void to find the vital resources and territory needed to save humanity.
