From the back of the module:
"In the far future, human space has just emerged from a century-long galactic war. The dark times are over. Now the rebuilding begins. It starts at the Kendai communications relay, where the newly formed Galactic Concord hopes to reestablish contact with a frontier region that was cut off at the height of the conflict. A region known to those of Old Space as the Verge. . . .
Now a group of heavily armed terrorists has grabbed Kendai and plans to use the relay to destroy the entire Concord communications network. Your group of heroes is all that stands between the terrorists, the spread of a deadly computer supervirus, and the collapse of the fragile galactic peace accords.
Black Starfall is an ALTERNITY adventure that serves as a prelude to the STAR*DRIVE campaign setting. This pulse-pounding far-future technothriller is designed for level 1 heroes and makes a great introduction to the ALTERNITY game."
