Far away, somewhere across the cosmos there is a large explosion of unknown source. It produces a large shockwave that travels through space itself, striking planets, stars and other celestial bodies. This shockwave mutates all organics that it meets, transforming their cells as it goes. It travels fast, and across the universe, Earth sits waiting to be hit by said wave. Meanwhile, within San Francisco... Atop the Golden Gate Bridge, Lucille has somehow climbed up and is currently throwing stones into the river below. Bored, she climbs back down and makes her way back to her and her brother's apartment. She looks at her pendant, which holds a small blue crystal give to her by her father. =================================================================== At Horizon Sciences, Dr Hewitt is working on a new type of energy cell for use within the city's power grid. "Ava, can you do me a favour and hand me the super-capacitor" he asks, unscrewing a panel to get back into the circuitry.
