It is 200 years in the future. Most of Earth has become uninhabitable and the majority of human population has been forced to live in space stations scattered throughout the solar system. What was at first the salvation of humankind, the stations as they are commonly known, have become the source of an illness that is quietly and steadily spreading among the populace. Known as the Syndrome, it is affecting children born into the sterile environments of the Stations. It is believed to be caused by “an absence of Earth,” meaning a lack of germs and viruses and bacteria which our bodies learn to deal with and adapt to as we grow. No child contracting the Syndrome has ever lived beyond the age of 8.
Devon Adair, the daughter of a wealthy family involved in the construction of the stations, gives birth to a son who is stricken with the Syndrome. Determined to save her son, Ulysses, she uses her personal fortune to organize and equip an expedition to a distant planet she believes will offer the chance for a cure to the disease. It is called the Eden Project and consists of two ships. The smaller, faster ship will take the Eden Advance team of colonists ahead to build a colony site and a hospital on the planet in anticipation of the arrival of the larger ship carrying 200 families. Due to reach the planet 2 years after the smaller ship, the colony ship will leave the families at the new colony and return to the stations for more colonists.
Most of the stories you will find here are simple, uncomplicated stories, not epic struggles comparable to the weekly series where an obstacle of some kind had to be overcome every week before the Edenites could move along on their journey, or could just live another day.
There are many good authors who have written that type of fanfic for the series. I leave it to them. I write the small stuff.
I wrote my stories originally to get on my sister's nerves, which is why most of them go absolutely nowhere. ;) She is a big Devon/Danziger shipper and I just liked ticking her off by writing stories where Devon and John ended up not getting together, but going in separate directions and settling down with other people. So keep that in mind as you read them. Many will link together in the end. What happens in one story will carry through into many of the others.
I got tired of working with last names only early on, soI made up my own first names for the members of the secondary crew. I based them on friends, family and co-workers. Many fanfic writers have done the same. As far as I know, no one with connections to the show has ever revealed what their first names might have been, or even what their places on the ship might have been - i.e. crew or colonists. I made up my own designations for that, too.
Role Playing Games and Round Robin; I thought I would add the storylines from an Earth 2 Round Robin and RPG that I have been participating in for the last two years. The stories are growing slowly due to real life situations but they are taking shape. I think they are good enough to share outside the games. They will be updated monthly.
