** STEEL RANGER STORY **
As humanity is forced to expand beyond Earth, they come into contact with a hostile machine intelligence born from their own creations. By initially using military shipments thought to be lost, it has mined other planets for resources and built a vast offensive fleet. Now mankind is stranded in a desperate war, with safety nowhere to be found.
United Military patrol ship "Scourge" led by commander Archer Hess picks up an unusual transmission sent from a barren planet - Ones & Zeroes forming an Omega symbol. Though possibly a trap, the ship is cleared to investigate. Its crew is equipped with self-charging "Ranger" armour suits, designed for combat against overwhelming enemies in any environment.
