UNECOM reserve officer Doctor Cunningham undertook an archaeological dig in Ecuador, and discovered an alien spacecraft underneath a 6,000 year old pyramid, together with a strange relic that changed shape. General Newcastle called upon Scooter to examine it, and he identified it as a piece of GoBotic technology. Believing it could be linked to the legendary Dark Heart. Scooter, A.J. Foster and Nick Burns were then sent on to Ecuador to help the excavations, where the Guardian soon identified the craft as a scout drone. Investigating its' computer banks he found that both the Dark Heart and the Evil One were not only real but had crash-landed somewhere on Earth. However, Cunningham - secretly a Renegade spy - tipped off Cy-Kill, who arrived in Ecuador with Crasher and Cop-Tur. After a brief stand-off Scooter was able to destroy the drone, while Leader-1 and Turbo arrived to drive off the Renegades. Using the data recorded by Scooter, Matt Hunter was able to identify the Evil One's actual landing site as Peru. In Search of Ancient GoBonauts
