It is the 22nd century and the human race has advanced, and is beginning to explore their home star system and nearby systems.
A line of robotic life forms was created to make life easier for humanity.
The Zobots were created with advanced artificial intelligence and quickly surpassed expectations. Some say they have achieved the level of sentience.
Many nations however did not recognize the Zobots as sentient, and a move was made to ‘dumb’ them down. The Zobots rebelled and a terrible war started. Millions on both sides were killed before the Zobots stole several ships and left the Earth for the star system known as Ross 154.
It is now 20 years later, and humanity and the Zobots have once again encountered each other, however now under a new liberty minded government Earth was ready to accept the Zobots as sentient beings.
The young starship Commander Kathryn Talania Ketcheyev has been sent to meet the Zobot Ambassador.
