Epidemics, racism and religious wars plagued the 21st
century.   It had to end somewhere.   We strove to recreate paradise.
  We segregated the population into cultural groups, to minimize conflict.
  We closed the borders.    We created an elite class that would maintain
order and security.   Ruins and artifacts, damaged paintings and crumbling
stone pillars remained- shadows of an ancient world, reflections of a forgotten
faith.   We neglected the lessons of history:  "those
who promise us paradise on earth,
never produced anything but a hell."    In this distorted
paradise, Delta is selected for a role that forces her to question her identity
and throws into conflict the ideals of the individual and the collective. 
  The struggle becomes epitomized in the face of one man- Lieutenant
Braydan -a man whose loyalties cannot be questioned. Will the relationship
destroy them both?
