Silurians come from a dark and dangerous time in Earth’s history. Despite this, they developed some extraordinary and powerful technologies. However, when a large, stray asteroid was detected nearing Earth, they thought it was the end. They had just enough time to construct a massive space ark and launch samples of the native flora and fauna into deep space. The rest of the species went into deep hibernation under the Earth’s surface. The cataclysm they had predicted never came, though. The asteroid instead entered orbit around Earth and became the moon.
The Silurian race still sleeps below the Earth’s surface, waiting for the world to recover from a disaster that never happened.
