1977: The 100th Anniversary of the Phonograph. NASA Astrophysicist Carl Sagan presses a singular copy of humankind's greatest hits onto a solid gold record, shooting it deep into space aboard the Voyager II probe.
Etched onto the LP's surface was a galactic map revealing Earth's location in the cosmos; a fateful invitation. Sagan proclaimed that the odds of the golden record actually being discovered are infinitesimal, but one day a beat-thirsty master race of intergalactic crate diggers may yet descend on Earth...
One force stands ready to defend the planet. Its mission: arm Earth’s DJs with stellar records at any cost.
halcyon… for humanity!
