They will stop at nothing and go through anyone to see the first treaty with an alien race ripped to shreds. Even if it could start a war humanity can’t win.

Mankind stands seemingly alone in the Universe with the Mendians, a race at least a thousand years ahead and content to lurk as a mystery on the edges of the treaty negotiated ten years ago.
Finally, out of the dark, after years of silence, a message arrives. And with it, an opportunity the UEA can’t pass up, but as always, it comes with compromises, concessions, that may tear the fragile seams holding the global society together to sunders in the process.

A surprise announcement from the Mendians takes the world by storm… a new gate will soon come online in an effort to fulfill the Treaty of Light.
Negotiated by Deep Space Ambassador Snow Dawkins, it was designed to stop a war, designed to keep both sides talking, and for ten years it’s worked. Still, the greatest threat to humanity, has always been the humans themselves.
While Earth reels from seismic revelations about their place in the galaxy, tensions between pro and anti-morphic groups begin to boil over at home.
Can humanity rise to meet the challenges and revelations before them, or will it finally tear them apart?
