. . . Brief History . . .
At the beginning of 2102 AD, after almost a decade of hard negotiations, all of Earths countries joined together to form The Global Alliance, a new government for all peoples. This government was split into two factions, The Science Sector and The Military Sector. Two leaders were elected into power and together they lead that world, through The Global Alliance, into the world we know now.
The first major act of The Global Alliance was to find a solution to Earths overpopulation. First they tried to sustain the population by passing laws that allowed synthetic foods, both plant and animals, to be sold commercially. Next they tried to control population growth, they passed more laws. One of those laws was the two child limit, enforced throughout most of the world. In some places that were more heavily populated, the law was amended to a single child limit. Furthermore, families needed a license to even have children. It worked for a while.
In the year 2115 AD the first space colony was launched to orbit Earth. In the next century there were a total of 150 colonies throughout our solar system. This was humanities hope to counteract Earths population increase, but it was only a band-aid over the problem. By the time we realized the colonies weren’t enough of a solution, the problem intensified. Finally in the year 2219 The Global Alliance Council voted to start research into colonizing a new planet, a new hope.
Once a suitable planet was found, Earths population was nearing nine and a half billion people, not including the space colonies. This was quickly becoming too many people for our planets resources to sustain. The government told the people that in fifty years we would be able to live on a new planet, thus fixing our overcrowding and overpopulation once and for all.
Three years later than first scheduled in 2293 AD the first interstellar colonization expedition would be ready for launch. The Eos would carry approximately seven hundred science and military sector personnel, two hundred and fifty seats would be sold for five hundred thousand credits each, a hefty price even for those in the most prosperous city levels. Another fifty seats were to be won by lottery. The Eos would carry a thousand people in cold sleep through the six decades it would take to reach their new home.
