"Never forsake the ones that you love." It is the year 12020 and the planet Earth is still reeling from Dewey Novak's demented holy war against the Coralians. The United Federation has disbanded as a result, creating a new era where humankind must pick up the pieces of their mistakes, stop letting others dictate what they should believe is right, and start fresh with an actual committed sense of justice. Now, 15 years after the Second Summer of Love, new events begin to threaten the Earth when fiendish beings emerge in droves, and eventually spread beyond the reaches of the outer universe. The great mystery of the Scub is revealed at last, and humanity learns there is a price to every moment of neglect. Now, as the progenitors of the Scub draw near, a time of destiny is at hand.
