Y2.200K offers a very unique twist to an age-old question: can humanity survive its infancy and mature or will our violent nature take over?
Author: Dimis Michaelides
Artist: Umit Inatci
In the year Y2.050K, the Energia spacecraft begins its voyage to Proxima Centauri.
Its architects create the Scientists for Peace Society. Soon after, deceptively menacing messages from alien civilizations mysteriously appear on the clouds. As humanity progresses and regresses in leaps and bounds, the urgency of the alien threats becomes very real and the SPS begins to play a leading role in world affairs.
After two major disasters cause over a billion deaths, democracy is once again relegated to history as humans seek to secure the survival of the species on Earth and beyond.
Will the survival instinct beat politicians’ vanity and people’s propensity to self-destruct?
