Prologue

“To waste, to destroy our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed.”

― Theodore Roosevelt , 26th President of the United States


In 1659, Mars was discovered. 305 years later the Mariner 4 was sent on an eight month mission to the red planet, and in 2004 Spirit landed on Mars- the first rover to do so. In the year 2034 humans were sent to Mars, and soon afterwards a scientific research facility for planetary use was set up. The rate of technological advances had skyrocketed- and with it, the Earth’s resources plummeted. Countries reliant on import were thrown into turmoil, and those who ran exports withdrew, keeping to themselves.

Russian ideals of the pre-WWII era rose again, and smaller, less fortunate countries banded together under the spreading influence. The majority of the Eastern Hemisphere surrounding Russia became the Red Union. Europe and China weren’t long in following suit, becoming the United European Lands and the Asiatic Assembly, respectively. Africa became the Equatorial Landmass. Alliances were made, borders drawn, and tensions high.

Until the Collapse.

Tense atmospheres between the alliance of Canada, Northern America, and Southern America, known as the Western Continental Powers and the Red Union came to the point of what could have befallen the Cold War. Nuclear weapons had been employed against Northern Siberia.

And the seams erupted.

The Western Continental Powers and the United European Lands allied, in conjunction against the Red Union and Asiatic Assembly. Several launches of smaller, less destructive nuclear bombs were used as aggressive tactical war movements, but the entire planet knew that one step too far would lead to total nuclear fallout.

Of course, armies never gained the chance to mobilize. The rapid defensive armament of each country had expedited the world’s draining. Soon, the entire world was Allied as the threat of their own decision’s effects came upon them.

It was too late to save the planet. But many began to turn to another, just across from the original home they had once known.

Missions were formed, research combined, and the first settlements began on Mars.

Human greed had dissipated as the end of days came upon the world, and every civilian possible was sent to their neighboring planet to live in the newly constructed bases, which later became the TerraDomes- huge spherical societies embedded within the surface of the planet, filled with artificial atmospheres and people. The planet’s naturally abundant carbon dioxide was a hyper-fuel for plant life, and soon the planet was thriving, and resources manufactured from the iron of the surface.

The old separation of the world by countries and ethnic boundaries were removed, the human catastrophe the only thing to ever truly unite the world’s people, at the expense of the world they lived on.

We bid farewell to the destruction we had caused on Earth.

And began anew on Mars.
