Creating a Brighter Future with the Power of Today!
Project Utopia introduced Team Tomorrow to the world on January 1, 1999. Two days later, Team Tomorrow smashed its way into the headquarters of Islamic Dawn, a terrorist group based in Al-Burhan, Iran. Despite the fact the terrorists were armed with Russian assault rifles and shoulder-launched SAMs, Caestus Pax and his six teammates were able to secure the compound within three minutes without suffering so much as a scratch. The members of Islamic Dawn were taken to an American federal prison and awaited trial. Just one week after Team Tomorrow's creation. They held another press conference in the Manhattan Rashoud facility. They were looking for new recruits.
Although Team Tomorrow and Project Utopia in general had a great track record of helping those in need, the United States government found it increasingly uncomfortable to have a foreign military on its own soil. So, they were asked to find another residence. In October of 2001, Team Tomorrow moved its headquarters to Venice, Italy (See Team Tomorrow-Europe).
Just a few months later (January 2002) it became clear that Team Tomorrow was not going to give up on North America so easily when Team Tomorrow was split up into two teams. One team remained in Venice, Italy; while the other moved down to Mexico City, Mexico (See Team Tomorrow Americas). Both teams immediately began recruiting drives.
While many novas in the T2M Auxillery corps were responsible for many of Utopias successes it was the members of the Two and soon to be three core teams that were the public face of Utopias strength.
From the Al-Burhan raid, to the removal of Radocanni, to the cleanup and rescue efforts of the Mexico City Earthquake, T2M was everywhere seemingly and there continued successes were the talk of the town. New membership bolstered T2Ms ranks and things looked golden.
Then the Equatorial wars began and Afric exploded into fire and blood. Novas killing novas all over the TV and N caused a public outcry and the UN asked Utopia to step in. led by Caestus Pax the full rosters of T2M Central and Americas landed in Africa and set to work seperating the warring powers. At first they had some minor successes but then they ran into the Elites, msot especially the ones working for Devries DEV8 servicce.
Confident--maybe too confident -- in their powers and righteous cause the Novas of T2M attacked and were swiftly handed their first and most decisive defeat. The Devries Novas were trained hardened soldiers who were battle ready, and bloodied and ready to fight. They ended up making the picture perfectpublic relations heroes look like complete amateurs, rookies and Poseurs. Slag and Apollo KId were killed, Impala, and Griffin, and Rodin were badly injured, and Team Tommorow was forced to retreat. The Devries Elites took some minor losses but nothing substantial.
The Defeat of not one but Two Team Tommorow Nova Teams working together was shocking ut nowhere near as shocking as the edited news coverage that showed T2M as battered but victorious. Media coverage set world records but no one knew the actual truth of T2Ms defeat. Onlt two bits of proof remained, one was that Elites to this day still fight in conflicts worldwide with Utopia turning a seeming blind eye, and two was that T2M aodpted a new policy that any T2M was prohibited from entering any conflict zone where they didnt outnumber enemy Novas by at least 2 to 1.
T2M would get a second chance to knock a little of the tarnish off its reputation when Kashmir exploded into war thanks to Chinese machinations. T2M Now three teams strong with the addition of its European branch entered the conflict in force, and this time they didnt fool around. Starting with the Pakistani forces they scattered the four Novas working for them and sent the Pakistani army packing. then they dealt with India, Column Shiva turned out to be a bit more reasonable and withdrew to the border taking its forces with them after only minimal skirmishes between the two teams. Finally they went for the main event; The Exploding Heavenly Mandate. The fighting was brutal but despite being out numbered T2M had the edge and carried the day. Raw power combined with superior teamwork enabled T2M to win handily despite the numbers disadvantage.
Less than a year after Team Tomorrow's worst defeat, they won a victory completely unprecedented in human history. They won a battle that prevented a war and may have saved the lives of everyone in Kashmir, not to mention millions in India, Pakistan and China.
Today T2M remains the shining example for Novas and Humanity to look up to, from the Terraforming of Ethiopia, to the closing of the Hole in the ozone lair to the dramatic rescue of the Shuttle Discovery, to the taking down of 48 of the 50 worst crime cartels and mafia families. T2M has now expanded into Asia and on their first assignment rescued hostages from a highrise in Singapore, and stopped a tsunami from destroying the Hawaiian islands.

Nova Auxilleries: Auxilleries are part of the Nova Corps who dont neccesarily count as T2M material or who decide or need to step away from Combat duty. Auxilleries are the novas you see on N every day carying supplies to disaster zones, or fixing toxic waste spills or cleaning up rubble after an earthquake. They work in the labs and PR offices, and in financial and adminstrative positions across the world. One of the Most Famous is Ichiko "Geisha" Iko Utopias greatest Diplomat who can be called to anywhere in the world, and who is directly responsible for brokering a final lasting peace between Israel and Palestine.

Teen Tommorow: A brainstorm of Justin Laragione , Teen Tommorow is a training class directed primarily at Novas who erupt in their teen or pre-adult years. strictly speaking that 15-19 years of age but the idea is to create some relatable faces for young kids to battle Utopias recent PR nightmares. The team has had some mixed success in this regard being highly popular among young and old, but its had a few snafus as well when the kids get high minded ideals and butt heads with their adult chaperones. Still all of them are heroes and have a lot of potential

GMs note: Team Tommorow are not dupes of Proteus and with the exception of Pax dont even know Proteus exists outside of some disturbing rumors, and vague evidence theyve found here and there which could be looked at in any of a number of ways. These are one and all GENUINE heroes looking to make the world a better place and dealing with the loss of 2 of their brightest and best.
The team are coopoeratave with law enforcment, even American officials who despite most american resistance rarely turn down help when offered from T2M. T2M is highly popular in Europe where theyre practically rockstars, and in several parts of Asia and Africa.
Most of the T2M membership would be horrifed to learn of the depths of Proteus infiltration into Utopia and the length Proteus has gone to control novas and would actively fight back against them. Until such evidenc eis unconvered though Protus is at best a rumor at worst anti utopia Propaganda. As for the Terragen they represent the worst possible aspects of Novadom, the thinking of humankind as animals or worse, and the notion of Novas as somehow superior or godlike. Fights between the terragen and T2M tend to be aprticualrly charged and intense as words fly as readily as fists and quantum bolts.
