We'd been traveling for a while, hopping from planet to planet to try and find someone to help. We hadnt had any luck since we set out at finding a planet that hosted a sympathetic race, one that would help getting the human race back to peaceful terms before our little party was the last piece of humanity left in the universe.
It wasnt like we hadnt run into any life on other planets, we most certainly had. But a reputation proceeded us that did not portray humans favorably. Aliens had observed us for a while, and we had had a difficult time obtaining any sympathy. Jenga was our last chance.
