It’s the same old story, someone else’s mistake has become your problem… the fools, the mad fools… the scientists did it for fun, they must have done, no one wanted massive mutated insect-like droids, the by-products of early bio-mechanical experiments with powerful x-rays, not me and not you. Dumped on the planet Ryxx and presumably left to degenerate, stagnate and fade out—the sickening mutations not only survived but thrived, their intelligence circuits warped by the past and left seeking revenge. Fears of a possible all-out attack has forced the Federation into action! Your mission is simple: fly to Ryxx, into the heart of the station the evil has made its lair and blow the whole thing sky high.
