- Shortly after V.E.G.A.'s total control, a rebellion named the Genesis War takes place on Earth, but is quickly suppressed with Kruger's new WMD, upgrading his Hellfire technology to develop the Scatter Missile MK I.
(Quick sciencey stuff: A particle accelerator is basically a big circular shaped tube that accelerates particles near the speed of light. When they collide, a huge amount of energy is released (As stated before, 1000x times hotter than the surface of the sun). Some scientists believe that the Big Bang occurred because of an enormous amount of energy at least 1000x MORE than that! With a big enough accelerator, it may happen again)
2179: Multiple space construction ships begin work on a gigantic particle accelerator to orbit Mars (which by now, is colonized). Iridium - being a super-conductive material - is chosen to control the amount of energy that will be released. A gamble on humanity and the universe is taken, unknowing if the energy will create another Big Bang.
2211: Construction finishes. The final gamble is taken. Despite unpopular vote in the V.E.G.A. council, the first test is initiated. A Big Bang is not created, but a wormhole is created instead. The entire planet of Mars is taken into another solar system. Communications are still functional, and more ships are sent through the worm hole. The new solar system is named Sector 2. Mankind's original sector is Sector 1.
2212: More gigantic particle accelerators are built. The enormous amounts of energy create several more random warps in space, but not wormholes.. alien artifacts begin coming from the warps and along with them, pockets of seemingly endless supplies of antimatter. Special V.E.G.A. cargo ships are immediately sent to harvest the antimatter. The artifact shows no sign of hostility, for now.
2230: Harrier Frigates and Genesis Cruisers are developed, with improved Scatter Missiles and weaponized Pulse Lasers. Remaining rebels steal blueprints to the Voyager corvette and Pulse Lasers. To counter the rebels, V.E.G.A. creates a super-long-ranged improved railgun.
