In Humanity's struggles on earth in a losing battle against a now very real global warming disaster a new hope was sought and it was found in our neighbouring galaxy. Cephoria 3, a previously undiscovered planet that truly dwarfed Earth, cold and inhospitable it was considered uninhabitable but after years of further devastating weather events and tragic human losses a plan was forged to move into space.
Colonies rapidly grew on the moon and soon large ships were being built in orbit for the greatest journey of man yet. Over 30 light aways it would take hundreds of years for the earliest ships to arrive. Soon industries on the moon developed and mining begun, growth was so rapid that soon land on the Moon was more expensive then on Earth. A day of celebration in the year 2031 marked one million inhabitants living permanently on the Moon. As countries were destroyed and borders were flooded soon races were forgotten and enemies became friends as life got harder and harder on earth. Temperatures in the low 50's in summer world wide were slowly killing the vunerable and unwilling to change. Floating cities soon began leaving Earth's orbit. The massive floating cities grew larger and larger and became the homes to millions of people, eventually by the year 2087 there were fewer then a million people living on earth, mostly as salvagers mining resources and taking what they could to send into space. But by the year 2091 Earth was no longer capable of supporting human life and was surrended back to nature by man. Humans were now a homeless species living on the moon and drifting through space slowly but at ever increasing speeds towards Cephoria 3 in the Rainbow Galaxy.
