The year is 2013. All ideas of the end of the world have ceased since the coming of the new year. Technology has improved greatly as well as the field of medicine. Studies in science are thriving as the global economy plummets. Besides the economic issues, life is very good on Earth. However, no one was expecting such a drastic change in a short amount of time.
Sun storms have been since the dawn of time. The sun has its regular cycle of storms and occasionally has fairly bad ones near the sun spot. During these storms, the magnetic field is greatly affected so nothing electronic works. Since the people of 2013 are more dependent on technology than before, an extremely terrible sun storm could be disastrous. Unfortunately, scientists began to predict the largest sun storm was going to occur in 2016.
Once the news broke out of the prediction, there was world wide panic. People jumped out of buildings, sold everything they owned, and took to the streets to protest anything they saw fit. To settle the people of the world, global leaders came up with a plan: Take the people, put them on a large ship, and head into space to look for a new Earth.
At first, scientists found the plan to be a tad humorous, so they did not take the global leaders seriously. Before time began to drift away, the scientists of the world were pressured into designing and having the fleet of ships built. Day after day, they worked to have these ships built to survive the conditions of outer space.
The year passed and in February 2015, The Fleet was completed. The Fleet was immediately opened to the public to board for its trip into space. Many were skeptical about the ship and the whole idea of there being a disastrous sun storm, so, having survived 2012 and other previous end of the world predictions, they stayed.
The Fleet left Earth in December 2015, with only a few thousand who believed the world would be destroyed from the sun storm. Those who boarded the ship dared not the discover the fate of the world after they left. They all left for their reasons and those reasons alone.
The year is now 2067. The Fleet is more successful than ever thought to be. Life was just the same as it was in 2013 except the people of The Fleet are traveling through space searching for a new Earth. However, the people live their lives without they are being watched.
An alien species similar to humans had been watching and following The Fleet for several years and recently decided to devise a plan to take control of the ship and its humans. So the human-like aliens managed to board The Fleet saying they were from the home planet and left right after. After much thought, the leaders of The Fleet let the aliens on the ship believing every word that had been said.
The aliens began to assimilate into the population and imitated their ways. Most of the humans also believed that they were from Earth, so they accepted these beings with open arms. However, others have their own suspicions as to who these newcomers are and hope to expose them before it's too late.
