Set in deep space in the distant future, Detached tells the story of corporations leading the way for interstellar colonisation. Free from the jurisdiction of Earth governments (limited to the boundaries of our solar system), the corporations were able to explore the universe using their own resources and money from private investors, but more importantly by following their own rules. Eventually an alien presence is discovered on one of the colonised planets. However, none of the technologies the explorers were able to find were functioning. Until now.

Genesis Corporation – one of two leading tech companies – has finally discovered a working alien artefact at one of their mining sites in Theta sector. Trying to keep it secret, they’ve silently started to transform the mine into a research and development facility. Careful not to alert competitors, they provided no extra security for their actions. But no such discovery can be kept under wraps for long. Soon enough, the R17 Corporation – the biggest rival of Genesis – learned about the discovery. A small R17 attack squad consisting of a single light cruiser and a couple of dropships and fighters was sent to take control over the artefact.

The Genesis station, with virtually no defence capabilities, was overrun in seconds. The mine chief called in the Genesis Corporation space station for help. But instead of expected rescue – which the station commander that received the call knew would not get there in time – a sleeper agent activated a KDD (Kill Don’t Destroy) bomb during the attack. This was the beginning of the end for both tech giants.
