End of an Era

Earth is but a distant memory for humanity. A forgotten, neglected world, that has been poisoned and hollowed out to a mere husk of its glory days. Leaving their once green home, humanity has taken to the stars, traveling across the vastness of space in giant ships.

Hundreds of generations come and go as they plod slowly across the distance between stars, in hope of finding a new world. It might seem like a poor existence, trapped inside an ever-aging tomb of metal, but nobody knows anything different. Nobody knows where they came from yet everyone hopes that someday, they will find a new home so that they can escape the claustrophobic confines of their metal coffin.

So although the era of Planet Earth is finished, the story of humanity continues, in the hope that one day, a new era will begin.
