There is no Drake Equation. There is no question on
sentience. The galaxy is alive and filled with life. The only issue: we humans
aren't invited.


The Galactic Star Alliance awaits your
exploration.

In
this illustrated novel co- created & written by Matthew Medney (Heavy Metal
Magazine CEO & NYU adjunct professor) and John Connelly (Lockheed Martin
Aerospace Engineer), humankind acknowledges the vastness of time, the cyclical
nature of civilization, and the obscurity of our own history.


If our galaxy is
so full of sentient life, why has no one said hello? We thought of a simple,
logical reason: no one wants to. Stepping back and casting an objective
eye on ourselves, it seems painfully obvious that humans lack a fundamental
respect for our planet and for each other. We possess extremely short memories
and long grudges, and the likelihood of receiving alien tools to hasten our
expansion seems downright foolhardy.


The Galactic Star Alliance has been alive and well
for millions of earth years. Hundreds of thousands of sentient worlds and
trillions of beings walk, run, and crawl across the many home worlds of the
Alliance. This revelation led to many questions: How is faster-than-light speed
travel possible, and could cohesive, interstellar civilizations exist without
it? Is it conceivable to govern a coalition not of different countries, but of
different species? Each question led to another and each answer built our world,
piece by piece until it spanned thousands of answers and millions of
light-years. As for the title, from where would our judges watch
us?

But our galaxy
has spoken to us humans. There are some who believe it is out there. Not as
science-fantasy but as science.


Introduce Bernard William Hubert. World renowned
astrophysicist, and Lead Scientist of the seminal company of exploration, Outer
Limits. While on loan to CERN, a catastrophe of unimaginable proportions leaves
Bernard as the sole survivor. While the scientific community & world looks
to him for answers, he simply states the unthinkable "it has to be
aliens." Inconceivable to the world, the Hubert family is investigated and
his family's name tarnished.


Disgraced and shunned. Bernard claws his way back
into the equation with his new company C.O.R.E as they work tirelessly to design
an engine capable of interstellar travel.


Follow Bernard on his road to redemption and
discovery in this ensemble cast of futurism, space travel and the fate of our
species.
