The year is 2312. Paul Richards, a veteran of the Plasma Wars, gazes into the night sky. The moon's neon cities gleam with color, and mars shimmers in the distance. He thinks about the Earth's condition, or what was Earth. You cannot call it Earth if there is no more soil. He notices the time; it is 8:04. Richards is late for his daughter's graduation from the Terra Military Force Academy; however, he didn't want to attend really. The thought of her in battle induces chills along his back.

The daughter, Rosanna Purdue, will be attending her first briefing for the invasion of mars in three days. The first attack scheduled is on the smaller Xenonian colony fortifcation in Twinkling Crater, named so for the very reflective metal used on the fort. It is expected to be an easy battle. Land 75 miles East of the crater, transport infantry on the BUS, and attack with starfighters and BUS chainturrets. The estimated time of battle is 20 hours. Purdue's role is to take out any enemy fighter that roams the airspace. Based on regular telescope data, the defenses of the fort include around 8 small fighters and some missile launchers attached to the main building.

Richards asks her to stay.

She does not.

The transport ship left 2 hours ago for mars. Rosanna looks back to the gray industrial planet hosting her father; a single tear forms. She turns around as the commanding officer walks into the room. As they near Mars, the bright green and white lights can be seen in the distance; it seems peaceful. The Terra Military Force lands and exits the transport.

A Xenonian Bomber departs from a major colony.


This build is based on the concept of Earth invading Mars, or a colony from another planet made on mars. It resembles the contrary to the common idea that Earth will be the first ones to settle Mars, and teaches that one should reach their goals before another takes his chance. The build features three unique structures, three similar structures, a large space craft, a tank/bus-like vehicle, and many smaller space fighters. The gray and blue vehicles represent Earth vehicles, and the rest is all alien. The build uses a very mechanical sci fi style, and some parts even show thouht in engineering. One very thought out example is the hangar door, which an be seen as the ring around the tower. The hydrolic pistons detract to bring the door down, and they expand to open the door and open the hangar. The build also shows a very large focus on special effects in the form of blocks by featuring a multitude of bullets and missiles and explosions.

I hope you enjoy it and thank you for viewing it!
