When humans eventually go off and settle on new worlds, it’s hard enough to imagine what life might be like for the first few colonists. But what about generations later? When the original settlers have died and it’s their children, and their children’s children, who are left to live on this potentially wild frontier? This is the basis of Aldebaran, an Earth-like world colonised by humans 100 years previously, but which has been unable to contact Earth ever since.
Filled with fantastic and bizarre creatures, alongside some all-too human political turmoil, Aldebaran is a fascinating exploration of what might happen to a pocket of humanity, should it ever be isolated outside it’s Earth-bound comfort zone.
