Nearly a thousand years ago, before FTL communication and travel were invented, Earth sent out a fleet of Von Neumann probes. These unmanned, self-replicating drones had a simple mission: Search the galaxy for intelligent life, and give that life the tools to contact us.
In all the intervening time, despite exploring hundreds of star systems, humanity has found only the simplest forms of life: bacteria, molds, and the like. Some began to despair that no other intelligent life would ever be found.
One year ago, Deep Space Station Norlind received a response.
We now know that there is other intelligent life in the universe. But it’s up to you, as the primary contact team onboard the newly built Speaker, to determine what our relationship with that life will be.
