Scrap begins: The year was Something Something. Humans had spread like peanut butter across the galaxy, looking for new planets to call Somewhere. One of those planets was Somewhere Five One Three.
When the humans arrive on Somewhere 513, they discover that the robots previously sent to prepare the planet for the arrival of humans have decided to retain it for themselves. Only one robot remains loyal. That is K1-NG, also known as King of the Robots. However, even with the potentially most powerful robot on their side, the outlawed humans stand little chance. The humans are essentially wiped out.
Ten years later, Gnat and her sister Paige are the only humans left. They have spent their lives hidden underground. Now however, they have been forced to venture out in search of the one robot that stood side by side with the humans. There is a slight, well huge problem however – the once mighty K1-NG has taken a vow never to help another human for as long as he exists.
