Introduction storyline (Level 1):

26 December 3640, 0934 hours
174th Earth Colony

Long after the spawning of self-aware robots, an independent robotic force is out to claim all energy sources as their own, forcing all energy needing beings, including a species known as humans, to give their lives in exchange for energy.

The Federation have been trying to stop this force, the Independent Robotic AXis (I.R.A.X.), from harvesting energy for decades, as they pose a great threat.

You, Walker model VX-229B(SA), are a member of the Self-Aware Robotic Alliance (S.A.R.A.), a very intelligent and completely robotic department of the Federation.

After many years of supervising generator maintenance on various ships, your current station, SpaceCraft model UNX71(ET), has come in direct contact with I.R.A.X. forces.

Your host spaceship was taken over with little resistence, and various enemy forces were deployed to secure the objective. You, as well as your fellow caretakers, who do not have your adaptive mindset to act upon possible emergencies, were retained in vacant energy chambers.

Alliance vessels were called upon, equiped with large laser beams, in an attempt to free your station from captivity.   Most of the enemy forces were destroyed, but your rescuers have come under heavy fire and can no longer stay around to help you out.

Severe damage was also caused to the station itself, which enables you to escape, find an assault vehicle, take control of its firepower, eliminate the enemy invasion still present, and free your station.

Various generators in your host ship were converted to a type that can't be converted back.   Therefore these have to be destroyed as well before station regeneration can begin.

Your station's fate is within your own hands.


Classified vehicles:
Bloque Used for mass-destruction and out-maneuvering high-speed targets.
Transport Vehicle with non-solid properties for quick transportation across great distances.

Classified weapons:
Beam ray Energy stream with a high flow-rate.
Block busters Take out entire construction-clusters.
Star blaster Set a destruction cascade in motion.
Lazer Infinite penetration capability (instant kill).
