Story so Far
The year is 2055. Earth has nearly 10 billion inhabitants, and resources are growing scarcer by the day. Cold fusion hasn't panned out, and despite some fairly ambitious space exploration projects, such as a multinational space station orbiting Mars, humans still remain trapped on Earth.
Then, a strange extraterrestrial ship lands on the University of Berkeley campus on October 31st, 2055. It seems to have flying drones around it that are far more agile than they would appear to be capable of, lacking aerodynamic shapes. You have been scrambled onto the spot as part of the team to make first contact.
