|Anno Renovamen (2166- AR 01)|
The world felt reborn after ATLAS was no longer a threat. This sense of rebirth wasn’t lost on the nations of the world. In what could be considered a pretentious and grandiose move, the world elected to restart their new lease on life with a new calendar year. Known as “Anno Renovamen”, what would have been 2167 would come to be known as AR 01. There was still less than twenty years to solve the problem that had plagued the world. Genesis Global took the reins left by Helou. This time, instead of relying on a single vessel, they would construct a terraforming machine that would utilize the core of ATLAS, sans its Artificial Intelligence.
They set their sights on the world’s planetary neighbor, Mars. A problem quickly arose, it wasn’t possible to transition the entire populace of Earth to Mars in time. Instead of preparing Mars for colonization, it was decided to harvest the planet with its hypothesized more efficient and potent resources. It was here when science took a step back and politics took over. How many resources were available? Was it possible to equally share the resources to all the nations of the world? Who would control the import? Frustration quickly led to bickering, which led to disagreements and eventually, an end to the mutual understanding. Genesis Global being a United States company meant that the technology to move forward with the plan was in the hands of a single nation. What followed was months of negotiations, none of which ever came close to the original joint venture made over forty years prior. Five years after the new calendar year, an agreement was made.
The “For the Future” pact agreed that Mars would be split into territories for collaborating nations to harvest. Nations formed pacts, with the bigger nations taking the leadership position. Small countries would have to import the new resources from one of these pacts. Taxes and finances to afford this would become unbearable for most. Hatred for the larger nations grew and conflicts once more. Over the next ninety years, Mars had become established as a planetary resource for those on Earth to suck from its proverbial teat. Genesis Global continued to grow in stature and expanded its technology. Frames had become the mainstay of militaries all over the world.
After perfecting the technology, pilots became viable and their advancement only continued. Other tech companies came forward with their own Frames to help meet the demand for the nations that didn’t have a contract with Genesis Global. Earth survived its dance with energy depletion. In the nations of what became known as the “Trinity Alliance”, the joint pact between the United States, Great Britain and Canada, the true story was kept hidden. Public control through the flow of information was key to the countries that held the main share of Mars in its hand. Stringent protocols were put in place to monitor what sort of information was brought into their nations, censorship had reached its all time high. All to hide the tension on Mars and the war that was brewing.
The nations of what became known as the Euro-Asian Pact signed what could be considered a political non-disclosure agreement to keep the secret as well. With the “Alliance” being the main rights holder to Mars and the technology that made it all possible, the EAP had no choice but to oblige. These agreements didn’t prevent conflict. On Mars, battles started to rage onward as the greed became insatiable. On Earth, the nations saved face for the sake of their citizens, to keep them in place. But on Mars, everything was different. The lie fed to the world was that Mars was in the process of complete terraformation. Many people fell in love with the romantic dream of a new world and a new life. The veil that hid the true reality was thick.
