who know's what u may find?
After years of study they find a red button. Curious what is it function they push it...
Rebooting sequence initialized. Checking memory, subsystems, drivers... Operating system activated.
Suddenly they realised that the planet is massive space ship with its own inteligence. Some kind of Death Star. Weapon desined by advanced civilization to protect it from its enemies...
..but that weapon doesn't know that war is over. So it begins to destroy every fleet, planet on its way.
What you can do? Maybe call allies to destroy it togeter? Or find a way to cheat its "friend or foe" protocol. Or even you will hack it and force to be your own weapon.
