At 14 years old, teenagers are sent out to explore distant space. Encased in small, cold cells to survive the hundreds of years it takes to reach their destination, their bodies age 4 to 5 years while their minds do not age at all. Your mission is to explore, survive and excel through the planet you've been sent to scan for life. You are starting from the bottom. Can you make the come up?
