Long ago Earth's first sentient beings undergo the Transition, a state of perfect enlightenment that transcends corporeal existence. A small group remains behind to help shepherd the fledgling human race to the next stage of evolution. Locked in stasis chambers, they are buried deep beneath the waves along with the rest of Atlantis. 100,000 years later, six survivors awaken to find that the human race is missing, Earth has been turned into an amusement park, and swarms of giant, alien bug creatures plot to take over the planet. It's up to these time-lost Atlanteans to clean up the mess - if they can manage to get along for more than five minutes! Beginning in the distant past and plunging into a far-flung future, Crux is a Sci-Fi adventure with much heroism and humor. In Crux V. 2 wandering the remains of an abandoned future Earth, the Atlanteans must contend with the warrior forces of the Negation, a terrifying and ruthless extra-dimensional race. Their only hope of survival is find the long-lost human race - but every exploratory mission simply takes them further into danger. Crus is a science-fiction series not about science but about people, about an ad hoc team of six strangers learning to depend upon one another for their very survival. Smart - with heart.
