While people are preoccupied with their daily lives, and while nations are preoccupied with their economic difficulties and their contentions and agreements with one another, the Intervention has been growing in the world. Though it represents a small force, it is having a growing influence. This is the power of persuasion that is used immensely and to great effect within the universe around you, within a Greater Community of intelligent life, of which humanity is but a very small part.
For centuries, people of all cultures and faiths have wondered about life in the universe, speculating and pondering on the possibilities there. What would advanced civilizations be like? What would they have achieved with their technology? How would they be able to travel within the vast distances between stars and solar systems? And have they themselves, as advanced races in the universe, overcome competition, conflict and war?
As humanity faces its greatest difficulties living in a declining world, certain other races from the universe around you will come to try to take advantage of the situation for themselves. Posing as enlightened beings who have your best interests at heart, they will seek to gain greater influence here in a world of great value and strategic importance.
