The sun, Sol, protected mankind for thousands of years and the solar system for millions before that.
It was prophesied the Earth would end in 2191 and thirty five years later that prophecy would come true!
On that day, Sol reached out to save what child planets it could from an attack beyond our imagination. A star, Bane, tore into our backyard bent on snuffing out all traces of our people.
We all knew Bane’s henchmen planets would ultimately destroy our Earth but it was Sol that held Bane, pulling it away from the murderous rampage, in order to spare Mars. Still the two giants battle in the sky above and now we give thanks to our protective star. Sol, the marvellous ball of gas did what no God has done... actually stepped up to the plate and saved our tiny butts!
During the years since, man had learned not just to exist in the harsh environment, but to harness its lands to create an oasis of life – green grass, trees, water and air to breathe. Cities have been built, defences constructed and food is produced. Animals brought from Earth continue to survive... and mutate. A new Nature encourages the development of intelligent creatures beyond belief – some friendly, others competitive and a few simply enemies.
With the continuing high winds circling the planet, transport is limited to hover vehicles... or wings! With life idyllic, the human race or what survives of it, has found a haven ... then the occupiers learn war!
The Flight of Man... to Mars.
A tale of spirit, determination and the challenges of life on the red planet!
