Adrian of Tarsus loves his daughter, Mariel. In a universe ruled by superstition and malice, it’s the only thing he can be certain of. The White Light of Tomorrow is a story about love and respect shared by a father and daughter, how it improves them, and how it empowers them in an actively hostile universe.
The Miranda was originally a transport vessel employed by the Earth Union to move personnel and equipment among Earth and the colonies. Her hull registration number was EC-1611, and her motto was “astra non obligant,” or, “the stars do not bind us.” Her crew at the time of the Advent wore this patch, which is still found painted, albeit faded, in various locations throughout the ship. It features the astronomical symbol for Uranus’ moon Miranda superimposed over the Milky Way.
The White Light of Tomorrow features a diverse cast of characters working with and against each other to survive in a strange future in which the Earth no longer exists and her far-flung colonies must find their own paths. I’ll detail the setting more in a future post, but tonight I’d like to introduce our cast!
