The InsectaZoid Story
Far out in the Galaxy, a terrible battle rages along the
spiral arm, leaving death and desolation in its wake.
No one knows when the fighting began, but when dinosaurs
first walked the Earth, the InsectaZoid Wars were
The Hexaploids were a hardy race of social insects that
emerged on an Earth-like world far out in a globular star
cluster. Due to high levels of background radiation, the
species mutated rapidly, exceeding Earth insects in both
size and intelligence.
The Hexaploids quickly became the dominant species on
their home planet. Dinosaurs and mammals never had a chance
in the shadow of the fiercely competitive and increasingly
As the Hexaploid civilizations advanced, they inevitably
waged war with their neighbors.
As their technology accelerated, they moved out into
space... where the fighting continued.
As the Hexaploids spread through the Galaxy, their
scientists made tremendous strides in medicine and robotics.
They began to 'improve' the race by adding cybernetic
attachments to equip themselves for battle and
Eventually, hordes of cybernetic ProtoZoids were
produced to fight the battles and find new planets to
Before long, the ProtoZoids began producing
offspring of their own &endash; purely mechanized versions
of the cyborg ProtoZoids, with enhanced sensors and
weaponry that made them nearly invincible.
As they progressed, each succeeding generation was
stronger, faster, smarter, and more adaptable than the last.
These were the first true "InsectaZoids". Billions
were produced and sent forth to conquer the Galaxy.
The InsectaZoids continued to develop, transforming
their bodies to meet the needs of new environments. Over
time, the location of the home planet was lost from the
memories of the now widely scattered InsectaZoids.
One day, a tremendous fleet of InsectaZoid battle
cruisers appeared in orbit above the home world....but to
the InsectaZoids, it was just another world to be
conquered. The InsectaZoid armies quickly overwhelmed
When the Hexaploids realized their danger, they began a
massive effort to warn the Galaxy of the impending peril.
Millions of messenger probes were built and sent into space,
programmed to deliver a warning of the approaching hordes of
Some probes reached the Earth. Ancient Egyptians
unearthed several of the message tablets, etched in titanium
with strange hieroglyphics. They were unable to decipher the
messages, but the Pharaohs were careful to preserve the
mysterious "Archives" as they called them.
However, as millennia passed, even the great library at
Ruht Ra Cam was lost beneath the shifting sands. When the
library was excavated in the early 1930's, the 'Archives'
were partially translated, which brought the preceding story
The warnings of the approaching InsectaZoid
invasion were misunderstood and ignored until recently, when
the first InsectaZoids were discovered by Antarctic
explorers. Survivors from the expedition captured several
variants, including the ElectraZoid and AntiZoid
