Historical Data

A large scientific and later industrial colony was established on Mars during Terra’s interplanetary period.

Around 400 the Old Earth Union revived the old terraforming program, which was then continued under successive Imperial and Solomani Confederation governments.

  • The Confederation undertook an aggressive program of economic revitalization and resettlement in parallel with terraforming.
  • The Confederation also established a major Naval Base on the moon of Deimos.

During the Solomani Rim War the invading Imperial fleet faced fierce resistance from the base on Deimos.

  • The Imperials deployed a squadron of battle tenders to tow planetoids as ‘nutcrackers’ to break Deimos open, destroying the moon.
  • The government on Mars surrendered quickly and the capital at Candor Chasma was occupied.

Mars has been under military rule ever since, with the Ministry of Colonization taking responsibility for the terraforming project until Terra achieves self rule.

  • An Imperial Marine garrison is stationed at a former Solomani Army base on the Elysium Plateau.
