A deck that lets your imagination soar with extraterrestrial adventures!
First contact with sapient, extraterrestrial lifeforms can be a monumental moment in history or it can be the end of history as we know it. When it happens, reality goes beyond the wildest expectations. The truth goes even deeper, revealing a greater power orchestrating everything.
The Explorers deck explores human contact with an alien civilization through a graphic novel-like visual extravaganza, highlighting the sameness of braving interstellar frontiers with exploration in the Age of Discovery albeit with a twist.
The United Terran Interstellar Administration put together the largest and most complex mission in record time.
I was chosen, by virtue of our neutrality and perhaps my two-facedness and uncanny ability to make the best of any situation, to be the main point of contact when first contact happens. I am also to be the scribe of all mission logs. Lots of trust in me. My resemblance to the Administration emblem might play a part too.
While the mission objective is to establish peaceful contact, will this turn out to be another Columbian Exchange?
The Aces illustrate the core of the fleet - 4 state-of-the-art interstellar spaceships. Meet Fiasco (Ace of Spades) and Solaris (Ace of Hearts), main star cruisers, providing reconnaissance and offensive support.
The Invincible (Ace of Clubs). This monstrous machination is the most powerful interstellar space carrier that humanity has ever built.
Eden (Ace of Diamonds). Whether I can find myself safely on the surface of the planet depends on this planetary lander.
