In 2169, using Jumpgate technology purchased from the Centauri Republic, Carter lead the first group of 768 colonists on an interplanetary flight, lasting only a few hours. After landing on Mars, the colonists begin construction of Mars Dome One, the new colonial capital.
Carter is still remembered well into the 23rd Century and even has a street named after him in the rebuilt Mars Dome One. His family are also still living on the colony, with his great-granddaughter Amanda Carter counted among his descendants.
- The name John Carter was a reference by writer Lawrence G. DiTillio to Edgar Rice Burroughs's character "John Carter of Mars".
- In "Deadly Relations - Bester Ascendant", a six year old Alfred Bester is given a book on John Carter, "founder of the Mars Colony" for his birthday.
