"Soon after the new millenium begins, humankind’s oldest enemies — war, famine and disease — are winning the battle on planet Earth. The United Nations decides to attempt the mission that has been the dream of countless science fiction writers and fans for generations: the colonization of a New World, before it is too late. The establishment of a new outpost for mankind as an alternative to the decaying situation on our mother planet seems to be the last and best hope for the continued existence of mankind. Code named “Unity,” the plan is simple. Send enough men, women and supplies to the earthlike planet, Chiron, orbiting the primary star in the Alpha Centauri system. Give them the seeds for planting a new society — technology, knowledge, and experts of every kind. Insure that the mission, U.N. sponsored, stays on track by carefully monitoring its progress from Earth. Then, when the time is right, and if the need still exists, begin shuttling others to the New World at Alpha Centauri. But space travel is a difficult undertaking, even now. It is hard to reach our own moon. Even if we had the capacity to make it to a distant planet, will we be able to bring the travelers back? Once firmly established on a distant world, will we be able to cooperate with one another there long enough to establish a new society that can attain the same levels and quality of life that we have achieved here after almost 5000 years of civilization? But the deteriorating conditions on Earth leave us little choice." Imagine; Imagine a world where everyone was free and equal where the peoples of the world prospered and everyone was happy. A perfect vision of a perfect future. Everyone has 3 cars which are clean and healthy for the environment, everyone can watch whatever TV they want whenever they want. Everything is an easy going joy. Everyone has access to free, clean and healthy water and can go home at night to hearty meal of their favorite food. Imagine that, wouldn't it be brilliant, wouldn't it be beautiful. A world where every man got his girl. Keep imagining. Hold on to that dream. Hold on to it like there is no tomorrow. Why? Because this is not that world. This is the opposite, the people starve and war wreaks havoc throughout the lands. You aren't ever sure where your next drink will come from, let alone your next meal. You wake up everyday with the continual fear that one of the shells may his your house and destroy what little is left. That is if you are lucky... If you are unlucky you will wake up in a cardboard box in an unused underground railway will countless millions of others. They are all starving, there isn't enough water either, disease runs rampant and the constant threat of a patrol of soldiers with shredder guns coming down to kill everyone there looms over you. You don't have to imagine this... This is reality. Joining the game: Spoiler : Firstly... Welcome! Its good to see you here. Secondly... Goodbye!
