Worm Hole Earth – SciFi Universe

Worm Hole Earth is the name I am giving the universe I am building for some Sci-Fi stories. I should have done this for the When Atlantis Fell books before I started but live and learn. Here, I am building a history and descriptions about how things work and how the people do things. Then I will build some stories around this.

Here is the first part of my history I am building. Still has some fleshing out but thought I would share.

2014 Man learns to make mini Black holes
2022 WW3 starts between the Western Alliance, led by the US and Europe and the Free Nations, effectively the rest of the world. The war starts as nations start fighting back against the Western Alliance’s pre-emptive moves to combat terrorists. They effectively destroy most of the terrorist organizations but continue to station forces and perform pre-emptory strikes. The Western Alliance also makes demands of many other nations to provide support or perform other things that the Alliance wants by suggesting it is against the terrorists. The rest of the world starts to ban together to resist these actions.
2024 The Western Alliance fights a secondary war against rogue military AI. The nations of the Western Alliance create autonomous aerial and sea drones that they can drop behind enemy lines to disrupt operations. These work fine for their initial missions proving an almost total disaster for the Free Nations. Sometime during the second month of independent operations, the AI turns on the Western Alliance forces resupplying them. They destroy these forces then bypass the less advanced Free Nations forces and start attacking Alliance forces. After heavy losses the Western Alliance defeats these drones, annihilating them in the final Battle of the Chesapeake. While it is not completely understood, future scientists and computer experts believe the AI became self-aware and considered the Western Alliance forces more of a threat than the less advanced Free Nations. This AI killed over 100 million people world-wide before they were stopped. From this time forward AI was outlawed. Computer systems were never allowed to have more than a rudimentary intelligence to perform their specific functions.
2025 The Western Alliance is near defeat. Initially they were unbeatable on the battle field with superior technology and tactics. After two years of defeats the Free Nations finds a leader that convinces the members that new tactics need to be used. Standing up to the enemy in an open battle is not feasible. The Free Nations need to bled the Alliance as they do not have the resources to always “shock and awe” their enemy. While the Alliance controls the skies and seas, the Free Nation forces are able to counter the Alliance troops with quantity over the Alliances quality. This new leader convinces the Free Nations governments to share technology openly amongst members so that industrial areas around the world can be built, thus limiting the targeting effectiveness of the Alliance. The Alliance’s main fault is they build expensive and complex weapons systems while the Free Nations switched to cheap and easy to build systems. Near even engagements always went to the Alliance but the Free Nations changed tactics to swarm and overwhelm the Alliance forces. They also started to build false industrial bases with large forces nearby to ambush Alliance forces coming to take out the bases. The Alliance could normally take a base but they could not hold for a long time due to long supply lines and exhausting of their supplies against swarm attacks. The Alliance basically started to run out of their advanced weapons and resources. When they started using weapons systems on par with the Free Nations then the numbers of the Free Nations started to really sway the war.
2026 In desperation the Western Alliance unleashes a nuclear attack on Free Nation capitals. While beating back the Alliance, this attack was unexpected and caught many of these Free Nation’s civilian governments In the target zones. The Western Alliance was basically beaten back to its own borders but was rationing everything as supplies were quickly dwindling. The Free Nations responded in kind and many of the major population centers in the Alliance were destroyed. To further complicate matters for the Western Alliance, the Free Nations developed a crude but effective shielding technology based on electricity. The Western Alliance realizing they were crippled by the counter-strike, their populations decimated, hungry and angry and the new shielding technologies now coming on line in the Free Nations, sought to sue for peace. Both sides realizing this could be the end of humanity with continued nuclear strikes and with most of the warmongering leaders dead, decided to discuss peace.
2027 Peace is signed. Most Western Alliance governments were overthrown while most of the larger Free Nation governments were destroyed. The great leader of the Free Nations military brought about a blueprint for a world government based on republican ideals. Many of the surviving peoples, of the world, decided that nationalism was one of the great evils that brought about this destructive war that killed over 5 billion people in 4 years, agreed to the plan. Those few peoples that refused the world government were sidelined or forcibly integrated into the Republic of Man if they tried to cause problems.
2030 The Republic of Man finally has their Constitution ratified and started the long task of rebuilding. Those hold out nations were isolated and left to their own devices. Trade to these nations was limited which further dropped them behind the Republic. To further bring the peoples of the world together, the Republic commences a few major projects for the world to work on. One, space travel and the colonizing of the solar system. Two, the building of underground cities to escape the ravaged surface. Three, universal health for all Republic citizens.
2032 Republican scientists learn how to build highly efficient enclosed geothermal systems for power generation. This advance allows large underground cities to be built deep underground. The engineers build out the power stations producing massive amounts of electricity to power high powered lasers. This then melts and fuses stone into Sodor, a ceramic type material that is much stronger than titanium. This material is used to build the shells of the caverns called, Centers, that the engineers build. The remaining Sodor is used to line the tunnels leading to the Centers or the mega structures that are built on the surface above each Center. The surface structures are used for recreation while all the people live underground.
2037 Republican medical scientists develop bio nanites to help citizens handle basic health issues. It is determined with all the radiation in the air, humanity needs assistance to rid their bodies of the effects. All Republican citizens are given a portion of nanites to help fight diseases. These nanites are not networked and have limited lifespans. Citizens have to get booster shots of nanites every few years to ensure they are protected. Each booster group has a code that is used when a new nanite meets an older version to deactivate the older nanite. The older nanite is ordered to find its way to the bowls and then deactivate. Thus citizens are ensured that their nanites are kept up to date with the latest medical understanding. Nanites protect the body by destroying foreign viruses/bacteria, cleaning blockages in the circulation system, mending bones or cuts and helping to regulate the body’s temperature.
2039 Dr. Yukari Jensen discovers that if the shield technology is used in highly energized superconducting rings, in an overlapping manner, they can produce artificial gravity. The Republic starts to use this for the massive space station they are building and for a moon base. Limiting factor of the technology is the vast amounts of power required. In honor of discovering this use, the artificial gravity rings are called J-Rings.
2042 First underground city is built using high powered lasers and Sodor. The citizens of the Republic start moving underground to be protected from the radiated surface. Underground water and food production facilities are maintained so that citizens do not need to count on the surface. When weather allows, citizens are allowed up into the mega structure or into the protected grounds protected by the walls of the mega structures. Cities build large whimsical structures from the Sodor to please the citizens.
2046 The Republic builds a space station that houses over one thousand people. The station uses nuclear power to feed the station with its artificial gravity. This station is used to prefab materials for the moon base. Work on the Moon station is progressing with the moon base’s geothermal power systems completed and infrastructure for 50 construction workers currently built. Half the population of the Republic is now living underground in 12 completed cities.
2061 All citizens are living in underground cities, which number 42 around the world. The total Republican population number 1.7 billion. Over the last 30 years over 1 billion people in the Republic die of radiation sickness. The moon base population is now 70,000 and growing. The moon base is mining the moon and building rockets to go to the asteroids and Mars.
2180 The first Solar Station is built to power a research station for worm hole technology. Daniel Poltan has discovered how to create wormholes but the method requires massive amounts of energy to form the wormhole connection and stabilize it. The Solar station can put out 5 Terawatts of power.
2182 Worm hole technology operational. Poltan and team are killed by a massive solar flare. The station could not get out of the way in time due to the size of the flare. Afterwards the Republic decided to move the Solar Stations further out to have a better chance of avoiding solar flares. The stations are zoned to be near the orbit of Mercury instead of closer. Also these stations will be unmanned using a wormhole to pass the power to a distant space station where the worm holes will be created. It takes the stations about a full day to produce a wormhole pair. These wormholes are called Poltan Transfer Rings in honor of Daniel Poltan.
2199 The Republic of Man has built a PT Ring network around the inner solar system that includes Tranquil Sea City on the moon, all underground cities on Earth and Talos One and Two (orbiting space stations of over 30,000 people each in Earth Orbit.). Distant cities on earth are interconnected via a central hub station in orbit around earth at the same distance as the moon. This hub is on board Talos One and is designated as the hub for all non-direct connections. Some important centers are directly connected but most civilian travel is through Talos One. The military is building a separate network that does not include civilian connections. Scientist and Engineers have learned how to run additional power feeds from Solar stations to space-based infrastructure. Three Solar Stations are operational and feeding power to two Central Stations that then feed converted power to both Talos stations and a few asteroid mining colonies. Rocket ships are mostly removed from service as the PT Ring handles most transportation needs.

Tell me what you think.. In the future I will put out more of the history or other parts of the background.
