After the horrendous disasters of the three attempts to set up colonies on the surface of the Red Planet, we (humans) built colony cities in orbit above Mars.
And with the discovery of the Jackson/KJylo Space Shield so many things were possible, it was just a matter of towing moons both large and small into different orbits around a planet.
Activating the Shield Drive, getting the tech’s in to terra-form a breathable atmosphere and building cites.
From here we are able to thoroughly explore the Martian surface.
This is the fifth colony to be activated.
( the Martian moons Phobos and Deimos are used by the military )
