    A group of antiquated robots have decided that they've had enough of being treated like second-class citizens. Working together, they take over the sewage plant on Segnal Prime and start pumping the sludge back up into the buildings. Seeing that this is bordering on a terrorist-level attack, Platoon F is sent in to regain control of the situation, but it turns out that the robots have just been doing this as a diversion. Captain Don Harr and his team of misfit androids have to get back to their ship and chase down the robots before they can make their getaway.
