The Prequel

By Alexis Beauregard

In year 2027, a mission to go send the first humans to mars was made.

They successfully landed whilst millions of people were watching live, celebrating.

After landing, a base was built and scientific research was conducted, helping future voyages to Mars.

Soon, other Nations on earth started their own projects to go to Mars.

After a few decades, Mars was populated and territories were being claimed.

But in the process of claiming territories, conflicts and wars were happening

A few Nations joined forces, creating a new powerfull Nation witch won many wars.

This Nation Called ‘Previa’ claimed all the territories on Mars.

The people on Mars and Earth saw each other as enemies.
