History of Game World
2062. Occurrence Signal
Powerful electromagnetic wave covers the solar system. All radio stations are beginning to capture the Earth signal - digital data streams that came with the wave. Due to its activity arise malfunctions techniques suffer information networks, communication. Soon, scientists say, that the signal has an artificial, extraterrestrial origin. Despite all efforts, it can not be decrypted for many years. The world's leading laboratories can not establish any patterns in the signals. Major corporations electronics manufacturing supply its equipment expensive "jammers".
After some ten years signal becomes for many a part of everyday life. Of course, it leaves a powerful imprint on the world culture. About him shoot documentaries and even feature films. Sometimes the declared self-proclaimed visionaries: they say they have decoded signal. As a rule, they do not pay attention.
In society there are new philosophical and religious currents. Gradually formed the beginnings of the new faith - faith in the signal. Its supporters believe in the need to reach the milestone - the limit beyond which humanity is waiting for the gods. In many ways, it serves as a pretext for the start of a new era of space exploration.
End 2I century - 22 century. The development of the solar system. XXVI century. Fall Frontier
There comes a time of technological stagnation. Except for minor progress, science, practically at a standstill. None of the modern technology does not allow to overcome significant cosmic distances and break out of the solar system. To solve this problem, the Earth's orbit begins the construction of the so-called "Frontier" - a giant booster set for travel to distant worlds.
During the test run fails, which turns into a disaster. The complex is destroyed, severely affected the Earth's surface. During this global event is followed by a social and economic crisis. In society there is a split. Faith in the signal starts to get extremist. Her followers are accused "non-believers" sabotage Frontier, and those accused of all "fanatics". There comes a turmoil. The epicenter of the multiple conflicts becomes Earth.
XXVII century. Religious war
Gradually weakens the control of the State Government over the colonies. The struggle against separatism turns into a series of civil wars. Riots occur on Earth. The backbone of the rebels make fanatics so-called "Limit". This extremist organization soon became the main church of believers in the signal. The turn heads self-proclaimed messiah - Bartle. Little is known about his personality. It is alleged that he is a scientist who was able to decipher the signal and hear it word "find us". Official media reject this version and Bartle called "ordinary terrorist."
In any case, Bartle has a remarkable intellect and incomparable gift of persuasion. He manages to competently organize and direct the rebels to turn the chaotic flow in one powerful force. For several years, gaining Frontier multibillion army of followers.
The threat posed by fanatics becomes obvious. States are joining forces to form Direktoriuma. New special structure is endowed with special powers to combat abroad throughout the solar system.
It begins long war. Great price Direktoriumu manage to win. Bartle hiding. The Government shares the citizens on religious grounds, repression begins. However, faith is impossible to erase from the minds of people. adopted "Decree on the Line" in 2780. Followers Bartle decide to send in the depths of space. Force concluded fanatics giant arks built-in prison. Many followers of Limit surrender to the authorities and voluntarily agree to participate in the project. Soon a huge fleet leaves the solar system and the connection disappears with him.
XXXI - XXXII century. The flowering Direktoriuma
Direktorium eventually turns into a new world government; civilization, to adopt the same name, it is booming. Technological development is moving step by step, to accelerate the pace. New terraforming technology can be effective - the solar system is densely populated. They also make it possible to neutralize the effects of the disaster Frontier.
The few remaining in the solar system Limit followers continue their terrorist activities and persecuted. After a series of high-profile murders committed by a group of fanatics, they receive from the media nickname "Revenanty". Catch the murderer as much larded cyber-implants that are like zombies. Soon "Revenanty" begin to form some sort of a secret organization, the Order. They decide to spread the word Bartle, at the same time, hiding in the shadows. Title Order conspirators decided to leave as is. Revenanty become "spirit of revenge", the ghost of the destroyed and decapitated Limit, which is intended to repay his killer - Direktoriumu.
In 3046, the signal disappears as suddenly as it appeared at the time.
Sometimes a breakthrough in travel technology. Can not get the first experimental warp installation, though extremely cumbersome. Revives the Frontier project. The new plan is considered to be less adventurous than the former: It was decided to construct several massive plants that provide travel between the planets of the solar system.
XXXIII - the beginning of the century XXXV. Start space expansion
Warp systems are becoming more efficient. Mankind goes to the stars, is actively settling nearby systems.
The discovery of primitive life forms on other planets, resulting in the rapid development of science in biology and, as a consequence, medicine (particularly implantology and neurochemistry). It starts mass production of plants capable of creating completely identical clones.
