The Neutrino Drive engine was the Cidebans' answer to near-lightspeed space travel. Cideban scoutships crossed the galaxy with impunity, cataloguing the evolutionary and technological progress of the worlds they discovered. Time dilation kept the scoutship pilots young as hundreds, even thousands of light years slipped behind them.
When the Cideban homeworld came under attack by the Kek, a vicious race of bloodthirsty insectoids who had commandeered one of their Neutrino Drive engines, a chain of events was set into motion which led straight to Earth. But humanity was ill-equipped to defend itself against interstellar spacefaring aliens, and not advanced enough to utilize Neutrino Drive engine technology.
