Scientists have been studying the nearby celestial bodies for centuries, and they have identified the best candidates for human habitation.

Special Notes:
This was originally a Kickstarter game from Placentia Games and Post Scriptum. The game play in this version has not changed. Some rules have been slightly clarified, but not changed. The major difference is that the art has been redone by famed artist, Kwanchai Moriya (Flip Ships).
