From instruction manual,
TEST PILOT LOG MARCH 17, 2093: On what started to be the routine high speed
test of interplanetary craft Delta 12, a powerplant malfunction caused the
craft to skip off the rim of a smmall, black hole. After experiencing
level 5 turbulence I became unconsciouss. Upon awaking, I found myself in a
time and place unknown to me; the craft having been completely destroyed.
The place I am in is inhabited by giant bug-like creatures. Through thought
waves, the inhabitants explained that they are part of a culture originally
insect-like but now almost entirely mechanical. As their biological body
parts began to age beyond effective use they replaced them with mechanical
parts. Through their will to survive they eventually crated an entire
society composed of machines.
During this gradual conversion from living matter to machinery a group of
the inhabitants started programming themselves to survive even at the
expense of others in the society. They became know as the Bad-Bugs. After
the complete metamorphosis to computer controlled minds these bugs began
attacking the good creatures.
Because of my human reasoning and ability as an experienced test pilot
the good bugs have asked for my help. I have been put in command of the
best machine-bug on their planet. My task of saving the good bugs should
prove extremely difficult since the Bad-Bugs have creature-machines
programmed solely for the purpose of stopping me. I will, however, be
awarded valuable treasures by the good bugs for every enemy I eliminate.
To further complicate my task the good bugs have asked me to rescue the
last remaining living creature on their planet, the Pixie. They have
warned me to be very cautious when approaching the Pixy since it is
constantly guarded by a killer, machine-bee.
