Meet the brave crew of the IHL Discovery, who have been carefully selected for this important mission.
THE IHL DISCOVERY is a Class B vessel, capable of faster-than-light-speed and time travel.
Moored beside a black hole at the centre of our Milky Way galaxy (Sagittarius A*), the vessel has just two weeks to leave 2021, after which time the ship and its crew would become stranded.
The name INTERGALACTIC HANSEATIC LEAGUE (IHL) is inspired by the Hanseatic sail ships of our own medieval history – seafaring vessels that traded goods between the Hanseatic nations of Europe. In 23rd-century Earthport Lynn, this maritime tradition now extends across the universe.
In order to reach the high speeds necessary for such intergalactic travel, the IHL ships sail through wormholes in spacetime, harnessing energy from solar winds to explore infinite galaxies.
