RESETTLEMENT UPDATE

It has been one full year since the Frontier re-opened after the impact of War Titan Typhon. On the very anniversary of the impact, the Robots started a new offensive against humans after staying away for years. There have been a lot of speculations of the reasons why; the most popular theory speaks of a field test of a new kind of Robot technology, derived from the notorious Scylla kept locked away under a bunker at Zychion.

The new Scylla-type technology apparently allows robots to evolve, and has so far manifested itself as the Hydra – several times. Brave colonists have so far repelled the hydra seven times, thanks to a superhuman effort by alert intelligence gatherers and brilliant code crackers.

Key intelligence about the Hydra and its Scylla-type technology was handed over from the RX units. It is still not known why the alleged hybrid-robot enemies decided to help humans. Their motives remain a mystery, and CDF would like to remind everyone that any kind of collaboration with the enemy is considered treason.
