Worlds Competing for Resources. In the early twenty-first century, the Orion Program was cancelled and NASA was disbanded in favor of SUN: a new international space exploration organization whose goal was to colonize Mars. They created a new space-worthy craft and a team of three astronauts became the first humans walk on the surface of the planet. During their exploration, they discovered a mysterious pink crystal with "unlimited" energy potential. When every country switched from natural resources to the mysterious Martian crystals, Earth was transformed in a new era of economic prosperity and technological advancement. However, when it was discovered that the Martian crystals only contained a limited amount of energy, Earth sent space explorers to the deepest uncharted regions of space in search of more crystals. In their search, they discovered a humanoid race that was also in need of new sources of energy. A dispute over the crystals led to violence. The violence led to WAR!
