(EDIT: SEE MOST RECENT POST FOR UPDATE)
Many of you probably know about the Sci-Fi universe I created a while back. Well seeing now how there is this new Non-Star Wars fiction area I decided that I will post the story entries here. Be aware, that I am in the process of completely re-hashing the chapters I wrote, so new big updates will happen immediatly. But for now, here's the setting of Humanity: After Earth. You can also visit the website I made for H:AE http://humanityafterearth.webs.com/
It is the year 3021 B.C.E. The rapidly expanding Human race has now become a significant galactic power in the Milky Way Galaxy. Their homeworld of Earth was destroyed by a never-ending series of wars that devastated the population and left the once pristine planet as nothing more than a gigantic junkyard, full of ruined monuments, toppled nations and the few Humans unlucky enough to be stranded on the impoverished planet. Though there were some who saved the race from utter extinction. Before the ravaging of Earth, a team of scientists put together a hasty evacuation effort as the reality of war drew ever closer. The nearby planets of Mars and Venus were colonized, and slowly turned into life-permitting habitats. As the wars slowly consumed planet Earth, Humans were shuttled off to the new worlds to live free of danger. A new age of enlightenment dawned on the Humans, and the remains of their race focused on survival together and peacefully created a new life for themselves.
Soon, expansion became a necessity, and the Humans began colonizing the moons of Saturn and Jupiter. It was a slow process, but one chance meeting changed it all. On a scouting mission to the Jupiter moon of Io, a team of scientists stumbled upon an extraterrestrial race. These humanoid aliens had come on a scouting mission of their own, and the Humans tried hard to appeal to their new neighbors. Good feelings were mutual, and the aliens, now known as Xinnites, shared their interstellar technology with the Humans. Now with a firm grip on interstellar travel, the Humans expanded further colonizing many solar systems, and built a healthy relationship with the Xinnites.
But peace could not last forever, with the introduction of the Xinnites the Humans were also introduced their sworn enemies, the Mancers. The Xinnites and the Mancers had been at war for centuries, and the Humans were soon drawn into the war themselves. The galactic power known as the Human Alliance developed a powerful military to fight off the strange weapons and tactics employed by the Mancers, including a powerful navy and infantry and the Humanity Alliance Territorial Defense Ring that protected Human planets from attack.
After a brief yet heated galactic war, the factions eventually cooled down and the number of battles rapidly decreased, sending the races into a tense cold war. But looming on the edges of known space lays a menace that threatens to consume the galaxy, and once again incite war and death.
