*After the Gleee conquered the Sol system, ( I was going to say that was wrong, but “conquered” is the right word) they built pleasure domes throughout the galaxy.
This is one near Jupiter.
It wasn’t really a war, no shots were fired, nobody died, the Gleee just dropped by one day and never left, even their name sounded jolly.
They are an amphibian race so all their moons and planets are terra-formed to include water.
They had everything humanity desired, they offered us pleasure of any description, all of it produced in holograms, we could travel to untold galaxies, live in fantasy worlds, without leaving our homes and it was free for the asking.
We probably didn’t read the fine print, within 20 years they controlled the governments of all human space. We were no longer human citizens, we were members of the Gleee Amalgamation.
Some still ask, did we sell out, I really can’t answer that, when you look at what we gained, no hunger, no money problems, humans now live for 3 times their normal span of years, no health problems,I can play games forever, life is sooo good.
Most of us don’t care,we’re happy, I mean a governments a government, right, their all the same, just a bunch of lizards.!!*
And the humans who were in charge before never gave us all this, and even if they’d thought of it you’d have to sign your life away.
