The Daring Adventures of Captain Harv 1A LITTLE BACKSTORY
An archeologist working in a very specialized field of research, a governmental decision which risked the foundations of the empire, and a young orphan, running away holding tightly onto the only memento he could recover from his father's corpse.
These three things are closely tied and may very well be important to remember at some point in time, but first maybe you'd like to hear some backstory as to what's happened over the past half millenia or so.
'Since the dawn of time, man has wondered "Am I alone?"' or at least that's what the history holo-discs would say. Whether this question was shared by all of mankind, or just the select few people who record and discuss history holo-discs is up for debate, but for some reason there always seems to be SOMEONE trying to find beings from other worlds.
Now I ain't talking about heaven and hell either here. Let's leave that debate for another day. I'm talking about little green men! Highly advanced beings from other planets!
