I love the flavor of Android's universe and with the mention of civil unrest on Mars...
10 to 1 that reference to a civil war on Mars is a hint at FFG's re-theming of the Dune boardgame license (you know, the one that didn't come with the license for the Dune universe...)
A desolate planet being fought over by multiple factions? I'll bet there are some nice safe havens from the nasty storms raging out there in the wilds, re-themed into terraforming bubbles instead of rock outcroppings. There's bound to be a resource to collect (Melange Mining, anyone?) and probably some of these megacorporations from Android standing in for the original factions. I even see a couple of religious sects mentioned amongst the Android spaces...
While an interesting theory, hasn't FFG repeatedly said that they would be setting their re-themed Dune in the Twilight Imperium universe? A much more high tech Space Opera than Android seems to be?

I am impressed with your meta-gaming mind! There is nothing better than games and expansions that tie into other games and expansions as a way of furthering plot. So whether it be a pseudo-Dune board-game focusing on the Martian colonist’s battle for control or an Android expansion that introduces detectives from the Department of Mars-land Security here to stop terrorist, I'm game. But again, that’s a great thought dudefella.
Yes...yes. This is a fertile land, and we will thrive. We will rule over all this land, and we will call it...this land.
