The infinite and only source of energy in the Dominium
One of the luckiest stroke in the history of Terra was the discovery of the Z energy early after the foundation of the I.D.E.A. At the time, energy was in a dire crisis on Terra. Nuclear fusion was a dead end, unable to provide the ever-growing needs. Energy consumption increased by tenfolds every year and austerity policies failed one after the other. The I.D.E.A. itself, for all the hype it generated, was threatened to be taken down due to the enormous amounts of energy it consumed, three-quarters of the agency’s budget at the time.
