Striker Manus is in shock with what he sees before him. Without any time to try and understand what is happening he is thrown directly into combat. Fighting for his life, Striker Manus needs to find out what happened, and what exactly he is fighting for.
Upon awaking Manus realizes he is different, changed, both on the outside and within. The Rubicon is gone, presumably taken by Despotron. The landscape has also changed. Destruction and devastation are everywhere, as far as can be seen. This is not the Sybernomica he remembers. A familiar looking shape can be seen in the distance. Perhaps there he will be able to get some answers.
