Earth, 2346 post apocalypse
Two millennia after the Great War, civilization still teetered perilously close to the edge of destruction. Most of those who had survived the nuclear and biologic disasters fell during the subsequent centuries of pillaging, plagues, and famine. Human and animal populations had not recovered from the devastation. Along with so many deaths, much of mankind's accomplishments had been lost.
In the first of Earth's darkest hours, the warriors, strongest of all the males, seized every viable space-craft, escaping from the doomed planet with their mates.
The ever dwindling numbers of humans left behind were largely sterile. As the years passed, those rare men, still capable of viable sperm production, fathered only female offspring. There had been no reports of a male birth in more than century.
Some women toiled to carve out a meager agrigarian existence, some formed nomadic tribes, and others roamed the land alone or in loose groups where the only law was survival.
One small band of females, known as the Society of Belle Amity, quietly worked, protecting and advancing the knowledge of mankind.
Even now the skies stayed dark much of time, the winds fierce, and the temperatures bitterly cold. Though conditions on most of Earth remained harsh, through rigorous training and ruthless discipline, the sisters of Belle Amity progressed and even prospered. Their giant hydroponic conservatories, powered by harnessing the wind, yielded an oxygen-rich atmosphere for the compound, in addition to growing nutrient-dense produce. Their clever scientists synthesized what they could neither cultivate nor manufacture.
Except for sperm.
Their bank of frozen semen declined steadily. This critical shortage forced them to first restrict allocation to only those members of the collective, who had high breeding scores. And then they were forced to limit impregnation to proven breeders.
When the last men on the planet died, the sperm supply continued to fall with no hope of replenishment. With less than a dozen specimens remaining, the sisters of Belle Amity faced their own extinction.
Having run out of options, they planned a hazardous gambit, seeking the warriors, who'd abandoned Earth two millennia earlier, in a last desperate bid to re-supply the sperm bank.
The twelve-year intergalactic trip meant a risky transition into stasis, and an even more risky reanimation procedure, for the pilot. This hazardous feat was in addition to all the dangers inherent in any space flight. Despite the long odds for success, and the many challenges to be overcome, the sisters of Belle Amity proceeded. With the survival of their kind on the line, they carefully honed their most elegant weapon, Dalila Theron, for this critical mission.
Artificially conceived, fostered by the sisterhood, trained in weapons, self-defense, and hastily instructed in the secret art of mind control, the disciple, Dalila accepted her sacred quest. She was launched into space with instructions to invade and conquer the warriors of Enyo by any means necessary.
Enyo, 2386 post exodus
Since leaving the dying planet of Earth for the verdant tropical lushness of Enyo, the warriors had not grown soft. They continued to build on their strengths, developing a race of super-men. They'd made great technological advances and raised their collective standard of living to new heights.
Only one problem resisted their researchers' efforts. The men of Enyo continued to produce male sperm--almost exclusively. Each year since their arrival on Enyo, the number of women born declined. After two millennia of predominately male births, the gender imbalance had grown critical.
Extensive exploration of their new galaxy yielded no human life forms. Intergalactic travel remained extremely hazardous. In their most recent effort to increase the number of female births, the council of elders, who governed Enyo, had instituted a mandatory testing of all unchosen men.
Now, only those warriors producing significant quantities of X gametes were eligible to be chosen as a mate by a breeding woman.
The men ineligible for breeding grew restless and unruly. Children of either sex had become a pampered and indulged rarity. The few women, capable of reproduction, were worshipped and closely guarded.
The ineligible males burned off their aggression by participating in war games, by playing extreme sports, and by indulging their carnal appetites with the ladies of light.
The ladies of light were unreal women, designed to a man's fantasies. They existed only for the life of a single session in a holo-arcade unit. A man was free to indulge the holo-world of sensual delights during his free time as long as no other patrons waited and his work credit balance remained positive.
In practice, the waiting lines for the pleasure units were long. And the warriors were always limited to one fifteen minute session.
