A plan born of desperation,
conceived in response to
the imminent destruction of their home worlds.
As plans for the evacuation began,
unmanned probes were sent into deep space
to find a habitable planet.
When a potential site was discovered,
the first interstellar transport ship, Pioneer1,
was send to establish a colony.
Pioneer 1 confirmed that the Planet Ragol
was a suitable location,
and the initial colonists started preparing
the planet for the main wave of refugees,
beginning with the construction
of the Central Dome.
7 years later...
Pioneer 2 completed its long voyage
with the main wave of refugees aboard.
But as Pioneer 2 entered orbit and opened
a communications link with the Central Dome,
an enormous explosion shook the entire planet.
All contact with the thousands of
men and women of Pioneer 1 was lost...
