Mass Effect: Repercussions
Discoveries on mars in 2148 lead to rapid advancement of technology. H-3 fuel provides easy energy while Element Zero allows manipulation of mass and gravity, allowing reasonable FTL travel. Soon after Humanity begins exploring its own solar system, Charon, Pluto’s moon, is discovered to house a Mass Relay, an ancient device able to project ships tens, hundreds, even thousands of light years away near instantaneously. These relays link into a system thousands of lightyears wide. The Systems Alliance is formed to guide humanity on its first steps onto the interstellar stage.
It is now 2183. In utero Element Zero exposure interacts with human physiology and has led to the emergence of Biotics, telekenetics with powers that are just now beginning to be understood by Humanity. Advances in computer Virtual Intelligence, Nanotechnology, and holographics have led to amazing strides in industrial development and the human/computer interface. Omnitools, all-in-one computer/medkit/nanoforge/control devices make life much easier for the average human, be they settler, soldier or civilian.
