Episode 2 : The Darkness Within

In the year 2150, the human race found itself on the brink of extinction. Earth was overcrowded and resources depleted. Pollution was out of control. Then the alien race, the Otruk, arrived and brought radical new technologies with them. The orbiting space stations were built with space elevators tethered to the ground with massive woven fibers of carbon nanotubes. Humans left the surface of the Earth to live in the space stations with the promise that they would return after the Otruk's cleaning technology rejuvenated the surface. The Otruk broke their promise, though, and refused to let humans back to the surface. In 2350, the human race launched their war to reclaim their home.

The Otruk have launched a surprise attack against Foothold, the fortress city surrounding the tether point of the space elevator. Trip and his squad must now make an emergency descent to the surface to reinforce and defend Foothold from the onslaught of the Otruk, who are intent on driving humanity off the surface. Anxiety runs high in the squad as they prepare to enter battle. Little does Trip know that the true test arrives in the aftermath of the battle where he must come to terms with the consequences of the destruction he has wrought.
