In the year 4997 AD Akari's space station is destroyed by Martians, the same fate which befell his previous home, Earth. After the Terra forming of Mars in 3321 AD the solar system entered an era of peace. This changed very suddenly in 4375 AD when Yellowstone erupted. Thousands of refugees flooded Mars. The Earth was declared unfit for humanoid life, and just like that, Mars had their first victory. A small number of people, however, were not ready to give up on their mother planet just yet. They stayed near the poles of the planet and braced for a volcanic winter which never came. Instead the earth heated until tundra became farmland, and ice caps ceased to exist. In turn they adapted to their new, dark, planet. Stuck in eternal night due to the ash in the stratosphere. Nobody thought Mars had been behind it all. Until one night, in the Alaskan wilderness, when a meteor shower became much more.
