Welcome to the Prosperian historical data archives. The following is a collection of historical entries preserved for the citizens of the Prosperia Starport and Prosperian civilization.
Below is a basic overview of the Prosperian story. You’re welcome to tap the “full story” button to get a much more in-depth view of Prosperia by reading all chapters published to date.
HOW WE GOT HERE
A space expedition crew of 1700 Earther souls awakened from cryostasis some 700 years later than expected. And while they were supposed to be in a solar system near SOL in the Milky Way Galaxy, they somehow managed to traverse the universe ending up in a completely different galaxy.
No inhabitable planets were found in the present solar system and propellant modules were irreversibly damaged, so drones were put to work building a massive Starport that once built was given the name PROSPERIA.
Centuries after the Prosperians arrived in this new galaxy their numbers swelled into the hundreds of thousands. Other human-like beings have come along to create alliances (and war), and PROSPERIA has become an economic, political and production powerhouse for a huge swath of the galaxy.
CAPTAIN GREG MULDER
In 2351 Captain Greg Mulder was commissioned as Commander of the U.S.S. Pioneer Pearl, the first interstellar passenger ship to successfully leave the SOL system.
Mulder’s orders were to explore the Alpha Centauri system in search of inhabitable environments for colonization. The Pioneer Pearl hosted 1,700 crew and passengers, all living and traveling under his command.
He was the last human to enter a stasis pod when departing SOL, and one of the first to wake up when the Pioneer Pearl arrived in the Andromeda Galaxy in what was believed to be the year 3015.
Mulder served as the Founding President of the new Prosperian civilization until his death of natural causes in 3028. He was 68 years old.
A STARPORT CIVILIZATION
As every Prosperian knows, our new home solar system (The Pearl System) hosts no inhabitable planets. The Founders had to accept this unfortunate reality as they discovered the propulsion drives of the U.S.S. Pioneer Pearl were damaged beyond repair. A decision was made to reprogram the construction drones to build a colony station with an artificial environment.
Our new home was given the name “Prosperia” to reflect the new decentralized economic philosophy (a new perspective of what it means to be prosperous) shared by most of the pioneers at the time. 3 centuries later our home has expanded to 22 square miles of buildable structural foundation. Roughly the size of the ancient human city New York (Manhattan).
Prosperians designed and developed synthetic beings to help build, conduct economic activity and yes… engage in warfare. Synthetic Prosperians began as clones of humans, but over the past century have gone through substantial bionic upgrades. They are less and less recognizable as human clones and more pronounced as artificial beings.
Synth intelligence is now fully self aware and self managed. Human Prosperians no longer have control over synth programming. Synths are effectively autonomous, yet still choose to serve their human counterparts, doing the bidding of their Prosperian owners without question. We do not know or understand why this is.
Synths now lead the Prosperian factions, holding commanding positions and governing the factions on all aspects of their existence. Yet they govern according to the consensus put forth by their human counterparts. Synths enforce human laws and regulations, fight both foreign and domestic battles and do most of the manual labor needed by the colony.
Our solar system is rich with minerals and resources, but we must face the reality that Prosperia has reached its capacity for development. The Starport cannot sustain growth at our current pace for much longer.
The Federation is conducting multiple interstellar missions to find a planet suitable for human colonization. One that isn’t already inhabited by another species, of course.
As we are all aware, we’re not alone in this galaxy. A fact that is beginning to present a whole new range of complexities and challenges for our civilization.
