Driven by the lust for fame and the desire for monetary increase, he Geologic Industry decided to send unmanned vehicles to harvest the precious elements, while the terraformation of the planet is still in progress. What seemed to be a stroll on easy street, quickly became a challenged when the first robots when landing on the planet were seized and destroyed by an alien lifeform… the Vermes on Mars!
