The robots came like army ants across the field of battle. Some fell to our tanks’ fire, but even from the command tower I felt the shockwave as the metal horde slammed into our front line. I watched one robot dodge a tank’s cannon fire, climb atop, pry it open, and devour its screaming, wiggling occupants. When it was done, it looked directly at me, seemingly thinking, time for the main course.

I dropped my binoculars and stared hard at the research director. “‘Energetically Autonomous Tactical Robot?’ You really thought that was a good idea? Really?”
