The long war started when the population of Deimos kept growing, but trade and farming capabilities failed to provide enough for its people. After a neutron explosion from a fusion generator in one of their food production centers, their supply dropped to only 10% of their needs. When Rhea and Kepler refused to send enough aid, the military joint command of Deimos took some of the Rhean farm moons by force, kicking off a full-scale planetary war.
Soon all planets had devoted all their resources to war.
After multiple battles for moons, asteroids, and surface positions on enemy planets, the Deimians and Rheans were decimated up to the verge of extinction. Before the pure annihilation of their enemies, the Keplans used their influence to sue for peace. In the conference set at the Magdalena moon complex, the peace treaties were signed.
Hundreds of years ago, we managed to break the chains of gravity and lightspeed. Now being shackled to a single planet is a distant memory...
They called it science fiction; now it’s science fact. It started with the Burst. A burst of almost uncontrolled energy generated by an Alcubierre drive.
Thanks to the Burst, we traveled through the stars, but because of the Burst, we soon lost contact with our home. Some called it “Earth,” some called it “Terra,” some called it “Hm.” But whatever you called it, that doesn’t matter anymore. When we got where we wanted to go, we found that place was nothing more than a glimpse of our past.
Centuries ago, we found a binary star system where Hyperion and Theia, two twin G2 stars, swung in an eternal dance in the void. Around them spun a plethora of planets in intertwined orbits with complex Lagrange points crowded with asteroids and small moons.
We made landfall with powerful rockets on multiple planets, attempting to establish flourishing colonies. Three planets were successfully colonized by humans: Rhea, Deimos, and Kepler. Now the Rheans, Deimians, and Keplans couldn’t be more different; because of differing environmental conditions, such small variances in gravity, radiation, and temperature ranges, evolution has branched, and each society has developed a vastly different culture.
The war ended six months ago. The winners of the war, the Keplans, decided to start a United Planets Organization with the very first mission of finding new resources.
That’s how the Interstellar Magdalena Center started its activities. There, the best trainers and commanders of the three planets show their strengths to the different teams that will colonize other planets.
MISSION TOGETHER is the last team that is training in Magdalena before they depart for planet Ultreia.
