The Martian underground was literally that, inhabiting the network of caves and tunnels deep beneath Mars’ inhospitable surface. Humans could only survive here by building their cities inside sealed and pressurised domes where a breathable atmosphere was maintained by machinery, much of which was housed in these very same tunnels. It meant the resistance had to move around a lot, which was no bad thing; they were far harder for the authorities to find that way.
Unfortunately, it also meant Steven and Marcus were having trouble tracking them down to relay Sheridan’s proposal. They could get lost down here forever.
