Summary: The year is 2073. The world as we know it is about to end. The United States and Canada are the only bastions of free thought left in the world. An electromagnetic pulse fired from two hundred miles above the North American continent leaves us deaf, and blind to what comes next. A biological missile attack kills ninety-nine percent of the population. The architects of our destruction are certain they have eliminated the last pocket of resistance to world domination. Like many who came before them they underestimated our willingness to defend our way of life. Following the attack surviving members of our military buried deep underground shielded from the effects of the pulse, and protected from the virus, turned keys and pushed buttons. This did not launch an immediate retaliation. What it did do was send a message to our submarine commanders at sea. The message begins "The Submarine Effect is activated." Three days later our submarine fleet launched a nuclear attack that left most of the planet buried under the fall out generated by forty-three hundred warheads. In anticipation of this eventuality, twenty-five years earlier steps were taken to insure the survival of our way of life. It began with the construction of New Atlantis seventeen thousand feet below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico. It continued with the occupation of New Atlantis by our submarine crews. It will end five hundred years later with the resurrection of mankind when they resurface to a world unlike anything you can imagine. This action/adventure storyline relates to one of our possible futures. Join the crew of the Georgana, a submarine that survived its ancient past, as they leave the safety of Quanterra, a city of two million, three and a half miles below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico. A city founded by the original inhabitants of New Atlantis. These adventurers will now risk everything in an attempt to reconnect with the surface, the birthplace of their ancestors.
