In the aftermath of a cataclysmic collision of an immense asteroid with the Earth, amid a decimated environment pummeled by the ravages of worldwide tsunamis, volcanic eruptions and impenetrable ash clouds, most forms of life succumbed. Yet out of the rubble of the scorched, scarred, frozen planet, a few groups of human stragglers managed to survive by seeking and improvising shelter.
As survivors salvaged equipment and fuel at sites that had been buried under snow and debris, they developed capabilities to generate electricity, restore vehicles, communicate by radio, build sailing ships and restore and fly aircraft. They carefully nurtured remnants of mammal, marine, avian and plant life that they found. As they did, they discovered more about what had happened to the Earth — how the rupture in the crust of the Earth had unleashed a toxic acidic volcanic soup that had made the oceans inhospitable to sea life, destroyed much of the Amazon rain forest, and triggered a new ice age that had been slowly transforming much of the planet into a frozen wasteland.
Yet a decade after the asteroid impact, a decline in volcanic activity loomed as a bright spot on the horizon. As volcanic eruptions decreased in intensity and frequency, the sunlight that began to penetrate the thinning ash clouds stimulated early signs of recovery. And although conflicts and power struggles still beset some groups of people, most humans remained united in their common quest to create civilization anew. But their best intentions appeared threatened when the world’s largest super volcano began smoldering with increasing ferocity, signaling an eruption that this time could annihilate the human race.
