ExoSquad is set in the early 22nd century, and by that time humanity has made two major advancements. They have developed terraforming methods, which has made it possible for humans to inhabit not only Earth, but Venus and Mars as well. The second major achievement was in the field of genetic engineering, which enabled the creation of a new race, called Neo sapiens. This new race, since it was to be used as slave labor in the mines on Mars, was created to be physically superior to Homo sapiens (referred to as Terrans). A Neo sapien is stronger, larger, and can survive in harsher conditions that his human counterpart. A Neo sapien requires less food and no sleep. One feature denied to the Neo sapien race was the ability to procreate, thus the only way for a new Neo sapien to be created is in a brood chamber. Despite this shortcoming, some Neo sapiens resemble males, while others tend to be considered female.

The jumptroop commander order his troops to fall back, but at least one has a scorpion leap and land on him as he does so. An e-frame pilot exclaims, "We're being overrun!" but Stavrogan tells him as he blasts back a charging lizard, "The jumptroops won't have a chance if we can't hold 'em 'til the evac shuttle gets here." Just then the evac shuttle is seen preparing to land, but one of the bat-like Neo warriors sets an explosive charge on it that destroys it... read more.
