       Additional Information  
     
      Explore humanity's futuristic attempt to control destiny, at all costs, in a time that is plagued by individuals having no scruples when it comes to getting their way, especially when commanding the technology to quite possibly achieve it. It is now the Twenty-Sixth Century. Although humanity has overcome the average, everyday problems associated with life on Earth and abroad, some annoyances still remain. 'Abnormal' human behavior, including racial and religious prejudices, are controlled by the oppressive World Government, but are still a part of the human condition. Mankind's environment has changed, but the human heart has not. Space travel is widespread and common-place throughout the Milky Way Galaxy. Numerous habitable and adaptable planets are populated with humans from Earth. Great efforts had been undertaken to find alien life, but the only ones found were the beasts within humans.
