On a planet not too far away there are two land masses. One is an hereditary monarchy, the other is a fully democratic society despite its population originating on the other land mass. The two are at war.
Slowly, rudimentary technological advances are being made. But the arrival of a spaceship triggers fear and reaction. The outcome is truly, surprisingly gruesome.
On a planet not too far away there are two land masses. One is mountainous, infertile and an hereditary monarchy, the other is fertile, sparsely populated and a fully democratic society despite its population originating on the other land mass. The two are at war.
Both societies are making technological advances and have reached the stage of using heavy guns and rudimentary aircraft. Left alone, they would each eventually develop the means to exterminate the other.
The arrival of a spaceship changes everything. Each government does its nest to reassure the other that this new threat is not theirs; uniting against the threat, whatever it may be, seems the only way forward. Despite tragedy on the way, it appears that some good may come from the apparently inexplicable appearance of a spaceship in the sky.
