Terran Union Planetary Identification Class
Third Stage Colony World

Mars is a Colony class world currently owned by the terran_union.


“After the destruction of the New Colombia Colony in the aftermath of the Marsquake of 2108, there are just three domes easily accessible from the spaceport on Mars. Mars was never heavily colonized despite predictions in the 21st century that it would be mankind's first home away from home. The fear of teratogenic fallout from New Colombia combined with the need for reconstruction efforts on Earth after the Unification Wars, and the development of practicable FTL drives led Mars becoming somewhat sidelined with even the promised terraforming efforts being half-ignored by the Union. St. Vincent's Dome is the first, and often the only, dome that visitors to Mars see. Connected by a short enclosed walk to the spaceport the dome is the primary residential and mercantile area on Mars. The wild-west 'mining town' feel is deliberate and is as much a tourist attraction as the buggy rides outside the domes, the saloon casino near the center of town is a prime example of catering both to the local miners and to the tourists. Ishtar Dome is known primarily for being the headquarters of the 'Guns of the Conclave' and is geared towards their use although there is a public Quantum Gate and small throughway in the dome. Hephaestus Dome is where the mining and refining facilities of Mars are located and is fairly utilitarian and industrial - forcing miners to head to St. Vincent's Dome if they're looking for some rest and relaxation.”

These are the locations that you can currently teleport to using the Quantum Gate service:

  • Entry Area
  • Cave
  • Cargo Bay
  • Office

Since the Terran Union presence on Mars is contained within a single dome and connecting cave systems, all the services are located in a single structure. Here you can find:

  • Mining Terminals
  • Storage Terminals
  • Medical Terminals
  • Workbench Terminals
  • ATM Terminals
  • Public Service Terminals
  • Market Terminals

Minerals found on Mars include:

  • Iron
  • Beryllium
  • Chromium
  • Vanadium
  • Palladium
  • Chemicals
  • Methane Gas
