“Because if you didn't speak your truth, there was always something that would speak it for you that much louder.”

— Pat Cadigan, Synners

The year is 2200, with only ten nations surviving the last war. The existential threat of climate change has ravaged biodiversity on Earth, forcing the empires to initiate their century-long space settlement mission-one sharing the ultimate goal of colonizing the closest star system, Alpha Centauri. While the human race may have survived, civilization has plunged into the unknown. Delegates will be faced with the tasks of spreading civilization in outer space, protecting human populations from extraterrestrial threats, and deciding whether to coexist with fellow civilizations or emerge as the sole galactic power.
