Historical Excerpt: Drone Reactivation
A.D. 2513

Chief War Drone Handler, Personal Log

It is with great reluctance that I reactivate the war drone army. Combat holo-capture from the galactic wars serves as a grim reminder what these monstrosities are capable of against humans.

There is little choice. The alien attacks have grown increasingly bold. Our marines fight fiercely, but their numbers are now few. We are losing the war.

Today, the first drone reactivation. Decades of stasis, and they are still fully functional – astounding tech. There was a long silence as we observed the crimson glow of the drone optics light up and burn like hellfire. Who would have guessed these machines would become our last hope?
