Jeff R.: Martian Blossom

After the initial struggle for survival was over, the Martian colonists begin the scientific missions their base was originally designed for. The first deep soil probe revealed a strata of organic material, proof positive of prior life on Mars.

Further, among that material were a good many perfectly preserved spores, ready to live again should the right conditions arise. Director and President Simon Zolivar, always one for the classical reference, labeled one of the sample bottles "10,000 Dehydrated Martians- Just Add Water."

All thought of terraforming Mars vanished, and the project changed to Areoforming: restoring the conditions of primordial Mars.
