Geniuses In Disguise
Sometime around AD 2070, an epidemic destroyed more than three quarters of the world's population. Only a few thousand survived, and under the leadership of a few men, moved to what was renamed as Novus. In AD 2099, it was revealed that scientist had developed a way to give babies specific traits, thus creating ideal humans. The government of that time declared that a new beginning was in store, creating the time period Tempus Scientiae.
The ruling was set into place that all babies had to be made via in vitro fertilisation to create a new generation of advanced humans. Unfortunately, the system is not profitable to all – those whose genetic tampering failed are born with their future set as lab rats.
The year is now TS 53, and things are running smoothly, with no one stepping out of line, and nobody questioning the authorities, the government, or the system. All this, however, is about to change, thanks to the courage of five idealists, who simply want to go to university.
