    Summary

    An expedition to the other side of the Milky Way Galaxy goes south rapidly, leaving a small sect of mankind isolated to their own devices. They're without help or word from Earth and settled on a borderline inhospitable rock. What they're left with is ancient ruins of those that had inhabited their new planet long before them. With little alternative, they rebuild themselves inside and out to live long enough to explore what lies beyond the horizon. They could not predict how the rest of civilized space will treat them and how the changes they've made to themselves will play into the future.

    Summary

    What if the events of ME2 had happened before ME1?

    "The propaganda machine of the Alliance called it "A Resounding Success" but the reality of the battle of Torfan wasn't so glorious. Lieutenant Magna Shepard led many men and women to their deaths in order to ensure victory against the hostile Batarians.
    Her trial was kept a secret but despite High Command's efforts, word of her actions filtered through and five years later, Shepard walked out of prison as the Butcher of Torfan. She was exactly the kind of person the pro-human organization Cerberus was looking for to solve the mystery of the disappearing human colonies out in the Terminus Systems."
