A distinctive generational event. The Dark Wing pays tribute to all space faring science fiction that came before with a fresh, unique take on the genre. A planet fairing ship.

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.
A product of intense research and wild imagination, Dark Wing is operatic in
every sense of the word: vast, intellectual, and spanning generations. It offers a
prescient glimpse at the engineering, culture, and emotionality of an interstellar
society – much like the one we’re becoming.
