Fiction[edit | edit source]
Machine Robo (1982)[edit | edit source]
The Roms were chased away from Earth 3.2 billion years in the planet's past - until they came under attack by the alien Dogra. Only 182 of them escaped, leaving behind white matter that would repopulate the planet with life after the radiation from the Dogra attacks dissipated. Meanwhile they settled on the planet Romulos in the Vega nebula and built a new homeworld. When they found Earth was again coming under attack from the Dogra they dispatched the Machine Robo to the planet to help defend the human race, with the supercomputer Buddy helping Takeru Akiba defend the planet.
Notes[edit | edit source]
