Assuming there isn't sufficient resources in the city to maintain
themselves. I'd say there probably isn't, though I hadn't said eitehr
way as yet as we're not 100% sure we know what Kra'Vak eat on Mars -
though we do at least know they're not photosynethetic ;)

For the uneducated in the audience (namely me) how do you do that in
this situation? All the bits worth having (including the production
sites are all in the "built-up" areas) the plains are only just ticking
over and beyond mines there is little out there so I'm not sure what
you'd gain.

The only stuff I've allowed so far is of minimal effect - arguing we
don't know enough about KV physiology. That approach may increase into
the future, but for now we do't know enough I'd say (based on the nod
nod wink wink level of information UNDIA seems to know in FB2 and pieces
like Karla's Kidnap). Bottom line we don't got no chice right now ;)

That was the idea we were working on.

Who learns fastest/slowest?
There is some capability of production and development on Mars so what
levels are needed?
What's a TTP and what's a regular basis?
