Legends tell of the Star Seeds of the Ancient Enemy – A million years ago, as their cruel race died at the hands of those they oppressed, the Ancient Enemy sent thousands of Star Seeds filled with their DNA and the means to re-start their race out into the cosmos, to land on myriad worlds. Their former Servant race, now called The Eldred, arose as the new rulers of settled space, and dedicated themselves to wiping out Star Seeds wherever they were found.
But not all were found. Some were hidden - The Flaze and The Domo kept the development of our race a secret from the Eldred, until it was too late for the Eldred to easily wipe us out. The Eldred then lost their war to exterminate humanity, and were instead wiped out.
It seems not only are we offshoots of the Ancient Enemy, but somewhere on Earth lies a priceless treasure – the original Star Seed that altered life on our planet! ALIBI JONES is on the hunt for that Star Seed, agreeing to locate it for curious character FINDER as a favor. But Alibi is no longer sure he should turn something so valuable – and potentially POWERFUL – over to a mercenary like Finder. If he manages to track one down in the first place.
There is a bit of an obstacle – Alibi Jones is not actually welcome back on Earth right now...
An Interstellar Treasure Hunt – Moral dilemmas – Religious Conflicts – Old Familial Dysfunction – Merciless Aliens – and Mercenary Humans as well. Alibi Jones will have to face them all, and face up to the responsibilities and authority that comes with running a growing colony like The Hornet's Nest – in ALIBI JONES AND THE STAR SEEDS OF EARTH!
