It is the year 3031, and like all of the respectable and intelligent quacks predicted, Earth is ruined. But not from global warming, or the sun burning up its energy, or a third world war like they thought.
It all started when a group of aliens from a dying planet attacked us. Sounds like a classic sci-fi movie, doesn’t it? Well, I would have you know that this is as real as smoking remains of what was once New York City.
We managed to hold our own, and even win the war, but in the process they managed to blow up our moon, setting off a chain of events that devastated and pretty much made the planet uninhabitable. The humans that were left created a space station and mission control out of what was left of the moon calling it the Iron Moon.
They plan to relocate to Mars, but first, they must get all of the still unpolluted resources they can like water, oil, and so forth. But like the dirty scavengers they are, the small bands of aliens still surviving continue to raid the excavating rigs. The drones are strong, but it doesn’t take long for them to get shot up or just shut down due to some mechanical problem.
That’s where I come in. I’m Chase, Chase Harper, drone technician, pilot, rig operative, soldier and the only other human left on the planet besides my associate, Kova Sno. She’s what you might call the brains of the outfit. She runs the control center, commonly known as the sky base, while I’m out saving the planet (or what’s left of it.)
Without her, I would be lost in some desert being eaten by Scavs (what we call the remaining aliens). She is in charge of communications, contact with mission control in the Iron Moon, GPS, base security, and basically making sure we stay alive.
Together we are what Sally, the head of Mission Control, calls an “effective team.” We really do work well together, especially considering our different backgrounds.
Well, there it is, the sun rises once again over the barren and beaten landscape. It’s thought-provoking, you know? No matter what happens, the sun always rises like a beacon of hope to a dying world.
Anyways, that’s my cue to head out. Time to down the rest of my coffee, strap on my rifle, make a witty comment to Kova, and head out for another day in the field.
Each day, I never know whether I’m coming home or not. We live with constant danger, but hey, we will be relocating to the Iron Moon here in just a few months. Soon we will be abandoning planet Earth for good.
