Added some more story to the above timeline.  A lot happened in the 2180's .  

Many world and corporate leaders turtled up.  Advanced construction capabilities, allowed for rapid defensive construction.  But reclaiming Earth was a non-starter.  With 99.998% of the world population either dead or Phage,  they nuked all the large population centers.

After that,  the Sentinel "Clone and Drone" program was developed to fight the remaining Phage.  Depending on budget, you might see these later...

The Phage was never defeated but a combination of spartan militarization, genetic resistance, and scarcity of food supply on Earth kept it at bay.  People emerged from their vaults and eventually coalesced into the Earth Defense Initiative.

Timeline Question

EDI colonies start in 2990 AD. 
120 years later, the phage mutates and 50% of EDI colonists are at risk.
Northpoint falls in 3210 AD... 100 years after the phage. 

Is that right?

That doesn't seem right.  May be an incongruity in the space/time continuum 😉 

Logically the mutation should have happened much closer to the Fall of Northpoint.

Let me run a thread integrity check...

Edit:Yep,  math error in the timeline.  Fall of Northpoint happened in 3110.  Putting that event 140 years before the arrival of the MSF.

Another update.  Moved MSF colonization ahead of Fall of NorthPoint.
