Remnants of Humanity by Kira0

After centuries of ignoring the warning signs, humanity has abandoned a wounded Earth to make a new home among the stars. We now float through space in artificial habitats, huge metal cylinders of our own design, a simulacrum of the environments we once knew.

We thought our technology was good enough to recreate the homeworld we gave up, but the artificiality of our manmade ecosystem always seems to shine through. Sterile landscapes that fail to replicate the intricate beauty and delicate balance of the natural world.

As we adapt to this existence defined by our technology and our isolation from nature, the very essence of what it means to be human has slowly eroded.

And in our perpetual escape, refugees sailing the seven stars, how do we awaken from our synthetic stupor to rebuild and rediscover the home that we lost?
