In the far future, humans have destroyed their homeplanet, Terra, by carelessly messing with the environment.

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.

But instead of being conveying characters and world via autonomy and cohesively, a majority of the run time is lambasted ...
