Astronomicon 1: The Beginning
Please note: I'm updating this story to the latest edition. Currently, updated chapters are 1-70 but I'll be updating more of them over the next day or five. Wattpad has been a little quirky recently which has slowed me down significantly, but I'll get it done as quickly as possible.
Sorry for any inconvenience while I'm doing this work. It's long overdue but it should be worth the wait.
Three Spacecraft, two-hundred-and-forty colonists, twenty-five trillion miles and a discovery that changes everything.
Astronomicon: The Beginning follows the human race's intrepid first steps into interstellar space, a colonisation mission to Proxima Centauri. The colossal distance and harsh environment are not all that stands between them and survival.
This first volume in the epic Astronomicon series is the story of their desperate adventures and the political machinations that are unfolding back on Earth, which threaten to end space exploration permanently. With colonies on Mars and a thriving mining community around Jupiter, will everyone want to come home?
A completed novel (completely 20 years ago) which has been proofread by a team and edited several times.
Please don't forget to vote for each chapter you enjoy. Votes are very important for Wattpad authors. Thank you. :)
NOTICE: I am currently doing a deep edit of this novel and will be posting the results at the start of February. There will be many minor changes, new conversations, terminology changes and some minor characters will have new names. If you've already read this novel, the changes will not be sufficient to justify reading it again (unless you want to!) but I'd like to avoid posting the updated version while anyone is still reading this one.
