Thirteen years ago, Earth was on the brink of becoming a Type I civilization. Just as the first manned fleet of ships were about to launch on a long-term mission to the Jovian System, a cataclysmic and surprise alien attack ravages the planet. One ship is able to escape the fray and aims beyond its intended mission: survive as long as they could, in full recognition that there would be no returning to Earth. Children are born and life goes on, until a boy named Joell spots an alien ship which the ship's scans do not. It it thought to be a case of the boy who cried wolf until one of the ship's passengers vanishes.
The Felled is a science fiction serial set in the future chronicling the lives of the first people to leave Earth, never to return.
