In 1511 the Taino people of Puerto Rico seduce and murder a conquistador, in order to test the mortality of their Spanish colonizers. e ensuing rebellion is the first in e New World, and crushed by the Spaniards. In 1803, Doctor Francisco Javier de Balmis, under order of the Spanish Crown, Charles IV, travels to Spanish colonies in the Americas with orphan children. He uses the children as living hosts from which to culture a vaccine for the Small Pox virus. e result is mass vaccination, and the origin of global health initiatives. In 2014, Puerto Ricans play at the waterfalls, cruise ships pass in and out of port, and the island manufactures a vast array of biotech and pharmaceuticals, engendered by the now-expired tax credits established by the United States to improve the economy of the commonwealth.
