Terra 3k: Early Morning Recce


Terra 3k: Early Morning Metro Recce (Reconnaissance) 

This is an adjunct to Terra 3rd Millennium: Urban Recce


In the 3rd Millennium, on Terra/Earth, the members of The Phoenix Project have been working in concentric circles on their quarterly check of urban centres and their suburbs, which were contaminated by the collapse of nuclear power plants and cities, in the mid-21st century.

Nature has been working on the long, hard process of breaking down the remnants left behind by 20th Century civilization.

At this point, the main things left behind, from previous centuries, are stone monuments,

Terra 3k: Metro Recce

“Mel?” Sara said over the holo comm-link.

“The gauges say it’s okay to remove the respirators,” she said.

“10-4, that,” Mel said, nodding to Kirsty and Nei; who tentatively slid their masks off.

“It’s remarkable how Nature has recovered,” Mel said.

“It’s been a gradual process,” Sara agreed.

“Maybe, Nature is going to be more cautious this time,” Mel suggested.

“Slow and steady proves sustainable,” Sara concluded.


From The Phoenix Project archives, “While concerns over the administration’s ties to foreign powers and conflicts of interests overwhelmed media at the time, it was the dismantling of previous  protocols for reducing 'Green House Gases'  and the EPA [Environmental Protection Agency] regulations regarding mining and pipelines, which tipped Climate Change past the tipping point, without the public being aware of how the world was being pushed over the edge, like lemmings.”

From, “Fracked: Doubling Down on Climate Change & The Drumpf Administration'”,

By Dr. Jet A. Blue, 2121 c.e.



This is a continuation of The Phoenix Project, Terra: 3K CE, and Terra 3rd Millennium: Urban Recce;
Expedition and Rocket Robin Hood Rescues Marion From the Castle are also set in the astounding year 3,000.

After the failure of the global economy and ecology in the early-21st Century, the population collapsed, with a lack of resources and infrastructure to address increasing migrating diseases, Climate Change, and the resulting eco-refugee crisis.

The Phoenix Project was established, during The Cold War, to develop technologies and archives to survive the 20th Century, in the event of nuclear or environmental disaster.

It has been a long road.
