You have been awakened from [cryostasis] to find yourself on a new world. As a volunteer of your former governments most ambitious project ever, the construction and launching of the Icarus and the Daedelus, you have left your ruined world to find a new home among the stars. Unfortunately, with a mission of this complexity, errors will arise. Your ship, the Icarus, has crashed landed into a planet and it's sister ship, the Daedelus, can not be hailed. Fortunately the planet you're on is hospitable, but environmental dangers could still exist. Without a full planetary survey the ship would have performed if it had come into orbit as planned, nothing is known of what lays in the wilds of this new world.
Many passengers and crew died during the crash, and many more have yet to be taken out of cryostasis. Be at ease though, our brightest engineers and scientists have been busy planning and constructing a new settlement for the survivors. I am Icarus, the ships computer, and I will be surveying and archiving the survivors progress and monitoring the environment as you take your first steps on this ancient shore.
