A far future time traveler (Esgal) and a cyberpunk revolutionary (Tobias Keller) work to stop forces that condemn the world to an excruciating death.
In the far future, earth has died and humanity has scattered to moons and space stations across the solar system. The Asaph Space Station, located in a near lunar orbit around Earth, is a scientific research center and home to Esgal, a historical epidemiologist, who uses time travel to gather data that may help bring new life to the long dead planet. In 1349 Esgal traveled through Europe to research the Black Death, contracting the disease and barely escaping with his life. He returns to Asaph scarred physically by the plague and psychologically from mass hysteria and violence. 1000 years later he finds himself back on the same soil studying another event that is eerily similar. But this time the people suspect foul play and they plan to do something about it. Leading this charge is Tobias Keller, a biohacking popstar and outspoken activist. Bearing his own scars he is organizing the fight from his headquarters at the nightclub Borgasm and bringing it straight to the source, ArTek. But not everything is as it seems and the only way to win is with the help of someone with a very different point of view.
