Note: Inspirations for this game are drawn from the following three sources: Starship Troopers (novel), Ender’s Game (novel), and Saga of Seven Suns (novel series). Knowledge of the canon is in no way necessary for the game and the setting is self-contained. Just giving credit where credit is due.

The year is 2294. Triton Station – Home of the Earth Defense Force’s training academy. In world where the manifest destiny of the human race extends to the stars, the Earth Defense Navy and Earth Defense Marine Corps are the armed forces of exploration, peacekeeping and defense serving Terrans in their expansion throughout space. The world below is a society where a number of the major nuclear powers such as the United States, Great Britain, China, Russia, France, Japan and others have allied to form central governmental units aimed at efficiency and the presentation of unified force to the species beyond.

The result is a society that enjoys a great deal of economic success and societal norms much higher than those experienced in the early 21st Century. The price of this is simple but steep. Each family must provide their firstborn child to the government for SAPS – the Skill and Aptitude Placement System. SAPS traces the children through their primary education years and then evaluates their genetic predisposition and developing skill and aptitude for certain positions. At the age of twelve, all SAPS students are “placed.” Some are placed in higher education in the hopes of becoming the next great exobiological researcher or a member of a Regional Government Council. Others are placed in trade schools to become the masters of the environmental containment fields or agricultural production facilities.

Others are chosen for their resilience and genetic prowess to become members of the EDN and EDMC. At the age of 14, those chosen for the Earth Defense Force are sent to Triton Station. The risks and rewards of the program are great – those that succeed are the future officers and leaders of the space military front as ambassadors and defenders of their world. Those that fail are sent back to Earth and doomed to life as menial wage slaves working in the jobs and positions deemed undesirable but necessary by society – a drag on the economy and a shame to their family. At cadets that reach the age of 20 and pass their final examinations are granted their ranks and join the EDF as full officers.

Once entering Triton Station, all students are placed in a Company. The members of Echo Company are a mixture of potential Marine Corps and Navy officers combined together. Young cadets, or “plebes,” are placed under the wings of the older cadets in their company with the older members assigned to protect and guide their fledging company comrades through the rigorous training of Triton Station. Once attaining the age of 16 and passing the first two years of general training and education, “plebes” are granted ACAT (Advanced Class Action Training) status – giving them their specialization including piloting, infantry lead, special operations and intelligence just to name a few.

The companies are not separated by age or gender. Cadets of different ages are forced to work together with the older cadets protecting their plebes in the name of company pride. Trained from a young age and supplemented with chemicals in their food that all but completely erase sexual drive and tension, no gender lines are drawn. Cadets of both genders sleep, shower, and live together with little to no thought of social distinctions that would have been drawn in the 21st Century.

Classroom instruction and physical training is only a part of the program. The main goal of every company is Ender’s Legacy, the championship cup granted every year to the company that wins the competition comprising academic success and victories in simulated war games between companies. Victory is everything.

You are a member of Echo Company. You are the future of the Earth Defense Force. You are a piece of Ender’s Legacy.
