Summary of the verse
When nuclear Armageddon destroys civilization on Earth, the only survivors are on the 12 international space stations in orbit. Three generations later, the 4,000 survivors living on a space ark of linked stations see their resources go scarce and face draconian measures established to make sure humanity has a future. Desperately looking for a solution, the ark's leaders send 100 juvenile prisoners back to the planet to test its habitability. Having always lived in space, the exiles find the planet fascinating and terrifying, but with the fate of the human race in their hands, they must forge a path into the unknown.
Power of the verse
Not really a powerful verse. Normally the average humans are nothing special. The grounders have some questionable superhuman feats as well as some of the eligius crew. The verse has access to nuclear warheads, weaponry, and missiles.
