Eternal Silence Background
The Origin War
In the final war on Earth, two sides struggled against each other in a desperate, climactic battle far above the planet. One side, realizing defeat was near, detonated a prototype superweapon planetside.
Earth was consumed entirely by the mysterious weapon, leaving no trace behind.
The weary survivors, victors only in a hollow sense, set forth in their military vessels to the nearest habitable system. On their backs rested the burden to rebuild human civilization from a small colony on a hostile planet named Neo Terra.
550 years later, another major war, the Nova War would besiege humanity. In a disturbing parallel to the Origin War, the superweapon that destroyed Earth would be pieced together from the ashes of history, in a secret project codenamed Eternal Silence.
