Chapter 7
Alphae’s Sons

The ships' crews emerged, revealing themselves to be human-like beings of greatly advanced technology and knowledge. They revealed that they were the descendants of a long-forgotten mission, known as "The Far Star", which had been launched from the home planet of GODS a long time ago. The mission's two ships, Alphae and Omegae, had encountered an asteroid and were forced to split. While Omegae had lost contact with Alphae, it was now revealed that the latter had landed on an unknown planet in the outer reaches of the solar system while Omegae carried on with the mission of colonizing Earth.

For millennia, the descendants of Alphae's crew struggled to survive on the hostile planet they had landed on. They had to contend with extreme temperatures, natural disasters, and a lack of resources. They had to find ways to grow food, create shelter, and maintain their technology in that harsh environment. They had to learn how to harness the power of the planet's elements, such as geothermal energy, to power their machines and use the planet's natural resources to create new materials. Over time, they became a highly advanced civilization with technologies and abilities far beyond those of humanity.

These challenges were akin to scars on the body, each one representing a different struggle and a different victory. They were not only physical scars but mental and cultural ones as well. They had to learn to cope with isolation and the loss of their home planet. They had to learn to work together and build a new society from scratch. These difficulties were not easy to overcome, but through determination and perseverance, Alphae's sons were able to create a new civilization, one that was able to thrive despite the odds.

For Alphae's sons, reuniting with humanity was a profound experience. It was as if they were finally coming home after being lost in the vast expanse of space for so much time. They had watched over humanity from afar, guiding them and protecting them as best they could, but it was not the same as being with them in person. They could sense the deep connection they shared with humanity as if they were all part of the same family. For them, it was like finally reuniting with their long-lost children. Humanity was the fruit of their ancient mission, the culmination of their efforts and sacrifices. They had given so much to ensure the survival and prosperity of this new world, and now they were finally able to see the results of their labor.

They felt a deep sense of pride and joy as they looked upon the people of Earth, knowing that they had played a crucial role in their development. They felt a sense of responsibility as well, knowing that they had to continue to protect and guide humanity in order to ensure a bright future for all. But they were ready to face whatever challenges lay ahead, for they knew that they were not alone; they had the support of humanity.
