Arete Mission

Expedition

Oct. 4 2081 - Oct. 28 2105 CE

The Arete mission of 2081 - 2105 was a 24-year expedition to the planet Prometheus in the Proxima Centauri system, and the first crewed interstellar voyage humanity undertook. Six humans aboard the UNSS Skyward Spirit dedicated two decades of their lives to the study of an alien world, and their courage and dedication paid off in unimaginable ways.
