The Last Frontier depicts an enormous dome set in a remote, inhospitable terrain. Is the dome protecting an unseen population from a hostile environment or containing some catastrophic nuclear or cosmic force? Whether it represents a utopian habitat or a dangerous event horizon remains unanswered but we can readily imagine that the inhabitants within might well be the same ones escaping in Orion Tide.
