An hundreds of years old HKR-021 war android woke up today only to be taken down by Crusader and his team. For second time in so many weeks an old AI-driven killing machine was on the loose. This one made a bee-line to get off the planet, heading to Clinton-Kennedy with a single minded resolve and not letting anything get in its way.
Casualties were surprisingly light with 21 SP’s and 18 civilians hospitalized. No deaths, though some people are still being pulled from the wreakage. The android used concussion charges to disperse police teams and focused it’s attention on the primary task – escaping Earth. But in doing so, it cut a swath through part of Brooklyn and Queens, only being slowed down by the NYSP SPIRIT teams, regular officers and the timely arrival of Crusader and his team who were in the city to meet with the Mayor’s office after their dramatic debut at Shackelton. The big rumor is that someone or some group wants Crusader and the other volunteers to stick together and it looks like at least some of them have agreed to do so and were in some kind of talks when this situation happened.
We have exclusive datalinks
SP Sergeant Levi Mulchahy concurred, “It was a joint operation, but Crusader is being a bit humble. It was the team, especially the blonde, who really put the hurt on this robot.” That blonde, who is not named at this time, has been identified as the same woman whose powers of light manipulation made such a difference at Shackelton. She was injured in the fight by drawing the robot’s fire. Others identified were a male energy projector (whom the SP’s identify as the alias Proximus) and another woman who at this time is unidentified. Crusader indicated that the team would be holding a press conference in a few days to explain to the media community and the city who they are and what they are about.
