This is an artifact of me posting here BEFORE I'd read Operation WINTERFEST, which was rather dumb. I had thought that Art of Noise had randomly written a song about the five-hundred-years-gone Martian invasion (I'm continually unsure what songs in their repertoire are covers and which are not) when in fact they're simply playing from a very old rock opera.
And then I compounded my error by assuming that in the UF universe, much like in our universe, the 19th and 20th centuries were filled with all kinds of stories and tropes about Martian invasions (which you'd imagine would, in fact, make native Martians a little annoyed) when the more logical assumption is that those stories never actually even occurred in UF.
Basically, I should not try to be funny, and especially not at four in the morning. That's on me.
