Tasked with protecting MarsCo’s preeminent status as the transportation solution for Sol, Pulse develops the controversial Digital Transmission process. “Digitrans” involves a combination of neural recording, high speed data transmission, molecular printing, and euthanasia to effectively teleport a vector across Sol in a matter of hours. Of course the old “you” is humanely destroyed, and nobody kept a backup of your neural coding.

This technology is ethically edgy, but it does come with a free “nip-and-tuck” surgery.

Date: 572 AE. Best guess, assuming the bioprinter was perfected around the time TTI floods its oceans with life.
