Backstory[edit | edit source]
- "After more than four millennia, the ship Altair CCW-0204, back on planet Earth, humans had abandoned at the end of the 22nd century to colonize 13 planets of Alpha Centauri. Now the human race is going back to basics. After an interstellar voyage, the crew of the spaceship is a surprise: the Earth is a new world and lush, and is inhabited by a new race of sentient insects. Who are these beings? They come from outer space or have evolved independently? But above all, they are now aliens or are we?"
