2315, Dark Machinist Child's Robot Factory

Main article: Robot Factory (Story)

UltraNet still lived even after the massacre of their robots and the downfall of their leader, seemingly taken over by Human rebel forces. The Machine Wars left massive impediments to all involved and over the half-century, there was silence between all factions, except one. The Dark Machinist Child had secretly restored a power node network to produce a robot army to exact his own revenge. UltraNet discovered this and sent R-109 and Gretel Mk. 2 to put a stop to this. In this case, R-109 was also seeking to avenge the deaths of his fellow machines during the Machine Wars. The two robots battled through the factory and ultimately killed the Machinist, ending this possible resurgence of conflict.
