Beyond the rather 70-80's style/feel of the characters is a deeper story realm. Terra e has an epic space opera sense to it, and it is, and yet it's not.

This solution took notions from the space race and computation:

Earth eventually becames inhabitable and the human race has to go into space and find new planets to colonize, it's also frequently present in these works of fiction a longing for Earth, even when adequate read more
