Deemed as untrustworthy, humanity banned Artificial Intelligence. The Alphas, one of the original factions of Earth, secretly developed the Contender Class AI “Alpha”.
It was the only one of its kind. Its sole purpose was to master the art of war on a level no one had seen before. It was built for war; to command Alpha troops on the battlefield.
When the Arkships were built, “Alpha” had evolved into the single most advanced AI humanity had ever seen. Due to the restrictions other Factions imposed, the Alphas could not simply transport their AI aboard the Arkship Novark.
“Alpha”, however, had no intention of simply shutting down. Since it already had access to an advanced technological facility with 3D Printers, nanoformers and more, it constructed itself a vessel that would contain its core once completed. The vessel looked human from the outside, indistinguishable from modern man.
And thus, “Alpha” was able to board the Novark alongside the last wave of passengers. Here, he shut down, to awaken once more when the Novark reached its designed location. Once the gates opened again after thousands of years, “Alpha” awakened too, ready to execute its base programming. To bring war to the remains of humanity.
