Overview

A·nach·ro·nox (uh-NACK-ruh-nox). Poison from the Past [From anachronism: a thing chronologically out of place, esp. one from a former era in current setting + nox, from L. noxa, nocere harm; 187 A.C.: an abandoned alien city-planet floating inside the hollow sphere of Sender One -- so named after a strange electric virus killed the first explorers to land on its surface.]

Investigate bizarre, futuristic environments, battle with galactic foes, and discover unique weapons and objects that aid you on your quest to find out who is hurrying the collapse of the whole universe! As the epic story line unfolds, guide your own destiny through the actions you take and the choices you make.
