You are the all members of a response unit deployed to the base in order to try to figure out what could have gone wrong.

Option 1: Expanse

Option 2: Early to the Stars

Following the discovery of a crashed alien ship in Vietnam, Humanity was able to transport early to the stars. Early is a relative term however, as new technology runs through everything. New Economics, Artificial people, cybernetics and AIs run through everything. In this variety most warrior PCs will likely be artificials, bioroids designed specifically for combat.

Jotunhemir

A colony on the border of explored space, Jotunhemir is earth like but in the late stages of an ice age, with glaciation running half way to the equator. It currently hosts around a million colonists, mostly in the equatorial zone. There is some evidence of an earlier, alien civilization there, but the ice seems to have destroyed most of the works they left behind.
