The game takes place in the future in a fictional sci—fi universe. The player assumes the role of the spacecraft passenger who has escaped from the cryos, sent to the recently founded colony Alcion on the outskirts of the galaxy. As it turns out upon awakening, the colony has long been mastered by humanity, and the game character, like his comrades in misfortune, has been frozen for 70 years. The local resident who has rescued him promises to save other colonists, but the player can both cooperate with him in this matter and transfer the savior to the evil Altsion corporation for a reward . In Alcyone, the game character becomes embroiled in a conspiracy threatening the very existence of the colony with the participation of several groups — corporations and bandits .
The colony includes two planets — one of them was terraformed and made more suitable for human life, while the second represents a wild world with dangerous fauna. Soon after the start of the game, the game character has its own spaceship — it allows you to move between different locations of the game, is used to store collected items and serves as a home for the game character and its companions .
