Wanting to create fully autonomous fighters, as close to normal beings as possible, the Coalition’s technology proved to be way ahead of its time and no one could predict the problems that would surface with the creation of such powerful soldiers.
During a fight in the Imdali Nebula, after a sheer victory against the ISL forces, a malfunction occurred to the Mechs’ operating system. The electromagnetic pulsesof the area fried the intergrated safeguards of the Oracles. At that moment, the Mechs ascended to a sentient race, realizing their existence, and for the first time, taking control over their actions instead of blindly following orders.
After the fight, the Mechs returned to the Coalition’s headquarters with certain demands towards the Oracles and the Earthlings. Both members of the Coalition considered the ascendance to be a malfunction in their designing system, however, the Mechs broke their connection to their creators and earned their autonomy.
Even if the Oracles had highly computerized minds, down their core, they were a living organism, but that was not the case for the Mechs. For the first time, a discussion of Mech rights began, with the Mechs requesting an equal position in the Council of the Rebirth Coalition.
The Rebirth Coalition found itself in a difficult position with an important choice to take. If the Coalition decided to kill the robots and restart their safeguards, its followers would consider the action hypocritic and the entire undertaking would collapse unto itself. Allowing the Mechs to operate autonomously could come with a plethora of problems, with many board members fearing a future coup.
However, after several days of discussion, the Coalition decided to award Mechs their freedom and offered an equal position to the board.
During that time, Mechs rightfully earned their ‘living’ rights, and discrimination against Mechs was equally punishable. But it would take many years before Mechs could naturally join the societies of Earthlings and Oracles.
