Planet of Origin: Gobotron, a planet in the Milky Way galaxy.
Gobeings are are highly advanced humanoids civilisation. As their mastery of technology progressed, their world underwent significant changes. They formed a thriving society that spanned the entire planet. Eventually, they built an enormous metallic casing over its entire surface. Eventually some gobeings rebelled against the established gobotronian order. The leader, amongst these Renegades, was a terrorist known as the Master Renegade. Opposing them and defending the peaceful citizens were police officers called the Guardians. These two forces battled each other for many years. Then, one fateful day, the Master Renegade and his minions chose an asteroid harvesting fleet as their next target. During the conflict, a large asteroid was inadvertantly hurled into GoBotron's surface. The massive impact and resulting explosions killed an estimated 80% of the planet's population. It also managed to take a sizable portion of the planet with it, leaving it with its trademark apple-core shape. A scientist known as The Last Engineer, seeing the dire circumstances his people were in, developed a new technology to save those who had survived, transfering their minds into robotic bodies, thereby preserving them from extinction. Hereafter the people of this planet were known as GoBots. In the aftermath of the near total destruction of GoBotron, both the Last Engineer and the Master Renegade disappeared. The Last Engineer and the Master Renegade âssed into legends. GoBotron was still in social upheaval. While the Guardians attempted to recover and rebuild what was left of their society, the Renegades were left to their own devices. Several of the stronger members fought against each other in a violent power struggle. The GoBot who finally gained control is known only as The Evil One. Weilding a powerful anti-matter weapon, the Dark heart, he attacked GoBotron. When it's power was unleashed, the entire planet was nearly destroyed in the chain reaction. The Guardian elders, one of whom looks suspiciously like Zeemon, were barely able to stop it. The Evil One was punished and exiled into deep space forever. His ship eventually crash landed on Earth in Peru about 2000 years ago. A gobot expedition looking for the LAst Engineer came to Earth in 1985.
