    Sometime in the future, humankind has done what humans do and pissed all over planet Earth, then left without cleaning up the mess. Folks now live in far-flung colonies throughout the galaxy (universe?) in cozy, climate controlled domes. One evening, an assassin saunters through the dark streets of one of these habitats, having just successfully killed his target. Unfortunately for him and everyone else in th
