Storyline

The Free Alliance and the Coalition have maintained a truce for some time now. They both have bases on Mars but there is a constant air of suspicion even with the presence of liaison officers. When the Free Alliance commander on Earth warns Colonel Samantha Elliot that Coalition forces on Mars may be stealing triradium, he is cut-off mid-sentence and communications with Earth is lost. When a huge shock wave strikes the base Elliot is convinced it's all a Coalition plot but her second-in-command Major James Bowen cautions that they should go slow. Written by garykmcd

Once Again! The foolish, shortsighted tendencies of humankind!
11 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here, we put a group of soldiers on a space station above Mars. They are part of once faction on Earth; the other is a Coalition that has an adversarial, or perceived terrorist role. Neither side trust the other and each is stockpiling weapons and missiles (although no one is willing to admit that). It is rumored that the "bad" guys are mining some incredibly powerful stuff on Mars and are moving toward the ability to totally destroy everything. Their motivations come into play, but are put aside for the time being. As the space crew watches, a huge cloud suddenly envelopes the Earth. It is assumed that the Coalition has caused this and now both groups need to figure out what happened. There is distrust and overzealousness on the part of the commander. She will have no soft talk, even if it means a mutual strike, destroying all life on Earth and in space. It is a powerful lesson we get here about hatred and distrust. The voice of reason seems to have little power.
