In the Dark Wing saga, Millennia ago, a doomed civilization did the impossible: saving their planet from an encroaching black hole by converting it into a giant spacecraft. Now, the Dark Wing, piloted by Captain Benedict Gunn, shepherds the planet and its entire race of Quails through space, searching for a new sun. Dark Wing offers a prescient glimpse at the engineering, culture, and emotionality of an interstellar society, much like the one we’re becoming.
