Wait List

Can beings from different worlds communicate? Can two species live together side by side? Can a new planet become a home for us all?


New home

Starting Point

Light years have passed, the voyage to new galaxies in search of a planet to call home may be at an end. Hidden in an unknown star belt lies a world with air we can breathe, minerals we can use and an ecosystem which will support us as we build a new life for our community. But our exploratory missions have reported that another form of life inhabits the planet. Can beings from different worlds communicate? Can two species live together side by side? Can this planet become a home for us all?
