The year was 2119. There were just days left before terrorists would unleash what they promised was “the final act”, a deadly mutation of the virus they had infected the Earth with exactly 100 years before. There was no doubt. THIS would be the extinction event promised in biblical times.
Fortunately, years prior a powerful, secret organization known as “The Immortals” had financed a classified scientific experiment to create “The Ark”, a portal to immortality in a parallel universe, the metaverse! Amongst them were the “Creators”, a council of just 10 exceptional human beings that would lead the colonization of this new world. But, this would be no easy trip and not everyone could go.
In order to withstand the immense force inside of the portal, each volunteer had to submit their bodies to changes that would turn them into extraordinary beings. The process was called MetaVolution. They would keep the same personalities and memories and their bodies would look similar to their Earth-bound appearance, but they would no longer be humans at all. They would be “Immortals”.
Millions had begged and pleaded, but just 8,778 could go. Scientists had calculated that the fuel source which powered “The Ark” would be expended at that point. From there the unit would
default into “sustainability mode” to protect the travelers from the mutating virus they had left behind. Who amongst them would have the courage to be the first to go?
Lt. General Brock Smith
, one of the “Creators”, walked valiantly forward and with one final puff of his cigar stepped into immortality on a journey to this brave new world.
