The human drifter colony ships approaching the young New Earth.

The New Earth (AKA "Planet Bob") is a planet in the Titan AE fictional universe. The planet is located in the Andali System.

Overview Edit

The New Earth was the end result of the Titan Project, a terraformation programme the development of which was led by Sam Tucker. It was created in 16 AE (3044 AD).

After the final confrontation with the Drej in 15 AE, the New Earth was formed out of the Titan draining the energy from the Drej Mothership, and collecting the materials from the Ice Rings of Tigrin. A new home was thus borne for the human race, while the Spiral Arm's common enemy was vanquished.

The Titan's terraforming process of New Earth was begun by Cale Tucker, Akima Kunimoto and Joseph Korso, the latter of whom sacrificed himself for the Titan's malfunctioning circuit breakers to work. Over a period of seven days, the Titan's terraforming drive transformed the Ice Rings of Tigrin into the New Earth.

Upon setting foot on the New Earth, Cale Tucker jokingly gives the planet the moniker "Bob". Over time, the young planet's population grew with the emergence of the scattered human drifters from all around the Spiral Arm.

Background Edit

For more information, see: Titan Project

After the destruction of Earth by the Drej in 3028 AD, the human race was scattered across the Spiral Arm. Since no uninhabited planets fit for sustaining human life had yet been found, many had taken residence in makeshift drifter colonies made up of conjoined spacecraft, but these only provided the humans with minimal accommodation and amenities.

Most of the human race had been treated with unwelcome contempt by other alien races out of fear they'd bring the Drej to them. Some humans were traded and used by various races as slaves, while few others would find accommodation on other planets at a high cost. Many others would drift between systems in their own spacecraft. With the threat of human extinction looming, the human race needed a new home planet.

Professor Sam Tucker had proposed in 3022 on the Kronos Research Station of a device that could build a planet for humans from scratch, for themselves. This would become the Titan Project. He devised this idea as a way of humanity relocating to a new home planet without the need for taking it from its natives. Funnily enough, the Kronos Station was located in the Andali System, which would later be the location of where Professor Tucker hid the Titan from the Drej.
