The Mechanation, I created this in the 90's. I wanted
a robot enemy that the players didn't have to worry
about killing. I always had the Heroes go into the
future, 1000 years to be exact, where the war was
raging full steam. The Mechanation was slowly killing
the Biological resistance. I even had the plants
joined up with the Humans to stop the Mechanation.
This was a all out war the Machines were always
winning in the end. At this time they found out how
the machines were made. I ran this scenario twice
and changed it both times. Way one I had it Humans
created the robots to fight the plants. The robots
came to a conclusion if there was no biological and
plants the plants would lose and never be able to
come back. The second way was a humanoid planet
discovered a moonbase. The whole society was
replace with machines to give them life forever. Each
computer was linked to each other (borg like). The
only living being was the Machine Queen who was the
original person who found the Moonbase. I liked the
second way a lot more. Having the queen portrayed
as an evil Manchine was very nice.
A QUICK ORIGIN OF Mechanation
The Mechanation in the GDF will be similar to the
second version. Hints of this would be in the Global
Defense Force and Galaxy Defense Force.
Wanting to study the Human Race more closely
without alerting them they have infiltrated several
levels of the Human populace.
Mechanation home planet is called Cyban no one
knows where exactly it's located. Its been in several
logs of captured damaged robots. Any direct info
with cooridantes have had self destructs attached to
it. Including a mothership that was damaged and
unable to make it back for repairs.
