Live the life of an everyday average Joe or Jane deep space asteroid miner, that wakes up everyday to mine asteroids for a mega mining corporation. Now that the time of abundance has past, and greed and hoarding has caused 99.9% of the remaining humanity as debt slaves, forcing many to work as space miners “space truckers”, trying to scrape by collecting minerals, in hopes of one day striking it rich with a payload that would allow once and for all, financial freedom, and escaping imprisonment as debt slaves.
Mining in space, is a hazardous job, that offers little glamour and little to no danger pay. Space Miners have to be wary of volatile asteroids that have gaseous pockets that can be extracted for propellant, although if the Miner is reckless, they can rupture and explode, causing pieces of debris to fly. If the miner is carefully they can extract the gas to use as fuel.
In zero G, most everything and anything can go wrong, according to Murphy’s Law, from rupturing oxygen lines or fuel lines, damaging comms and navigation systems.
Many inexperienced miners, lose their lives sometimes due to greed, carelessness, sometimes even the most skilled and experienced miners can have their luck run out, and left all alone to die in the darkness.
Miners also need to be wary and on the lookout for hostile space pirates, and other rival mining corporations staking claims on rare mineral enriched asteroids and planets.
Ever since Scientists have proven the existence of microbial extraterrestrial life, space exploration has made a cautious push to explore and discover new forms of life. Surprisingly aside from conspiracies and common belief, no intelligent life has been discovered. Perhaps they are more advanced and intelligent that they don’t allow themselves to become discovered. The discovery of new minerals not found on the periodic table of elements has allowed researchers to build new materials and technologies.
Till one dark day, one of the mining crew Debris Field Scanning Analyst [DFSA] identified a very strange anomaly coming from deep within an oddly shaped asteroid. They quickly dropped their regular mining duties, to further investigate the expedition site, in hopes to cash out on an amazing new alien discovery. A new alien embryo, or microbial bacterial could fetch enough credits, to purchase better scanning equipment.
The player is abruptly awoken with news that other mining crew have disappeared and lost all radio contact.
Your orders are to fly into the tunnels of the asteroid and investigate the disappearance of the previous crew members...
