After a comprehensive survey, it became clear that these crimson plains were our new home. All parameters exceeded expectations. The moderate, sunny climate, the gravity of 1.2033g, the amazingly oxygen-rich air, the abundant flora, and even small fauna, the four seasons... It all seemed almost too perfect.
This was well over a decade ago. After introducing our Noah's specimens into the environment, we sparked a new competitive race among the native ecosystem and our own invasive presence. We were careful to moderate it, and we were doing a good job. For a time, that is. One thing is certain: it is not only us who affected this planet, but we too have changed in irreversible ways.
