The NASA geologists describe this generically as "fretted terrain with crater ejecta," but to me it resembles lava flows or the deformation of rock due to intense heat.  Could it be the result of a global nuclear holocaust? 

 

 

One of the many obvious anomalies here is this equilateral triangle with rounded corners, next to a circle:
