Product Description Since the discovery of the Guide Stone 100 years ago deep in the equatorial sand of our planet, Kharak, our very origins have come into question. Now, after years of technological advancement and careful study, there is one inescapable revelation: We do not belong here. From that moment of discovery on, we have dedicated ourselves to one goal - returning home. Your Past Is a Lie, Your Futures Is in Jeopardy, and You're 35,000 Light Years from Home Kharak, a barren wasteland orbiting an insignificant star, has been our home for ages. It is a planet as old as our memory. But recent genetic research suggests that we are different from all other forms of life on Kharak. Then came the discovery: an ancient tablet long hidden in the Great Banded Desert, buried within the wreckage of a half-destroyed spacecraft. We must now acknowledge the inescapable truth - we are aliens to this world. This ancient rune set our civilization on a path leading straight into the heart of the galaxy.
