The Story Continues...

After the alien invasion, the Council of Earth successfully fought against the Reticulans. During this time the Council came upon the startling discovery of a plan to cover the Earth with Biomass. Further investigation revealed this as a network of alien organic tissue that, the Reticulans hoped, would become conscious and endowed with immense psychic powers. The Reticulans who invaded the Earth are not true representatives of their kind, they are a breakaway faction that burned the bridges and chose this backwater part of space to conduct its experiments.

The Reticulans constructed a large satellite with a closed ecosystem, and it is to this construction they relocated the remnants of human population. The experiment with the Biomass proceeded on the surface of the Earth. Then something horrific occurred, and people are just beginning to piece together what has really happened...
