A KODOJA TIMELINE

15 YEARS AGO
50 YEARS AGO (DOCUMENTED IN PROJECT KYOJO)
With the task of creating 'the most powerful weapon the world will ever see', Special weapons Division is formed. Using designs perfected in 1957, the building of a 15-story high robot begins. Weapons systems identified for the program include heat rays to be shot from the eyes and a hull with nuclear weapons capability, able to deploy a warhead with the correct launch codes. The fists can fire from the body and retract back using a strong cabling system. The piece de resistance of Project Kyojo is a computer capable of not only processing tasks and actions but also thinking, reacting and learning from situations. Over time it can use experience form battle simulations and choose on its own the best action to take.
Unfortunately something goes wrong in late-stage tests - suspicion surrounds the origin of the metal used to build the robot (the best metal for the purpose was part of a scrap receovery at Saipan Island in the Pacific) and the robot begins learning quickly. On November 10, 1961 the project is shut down after the final battle simulation (driven by a highly advanced robot that outmanuvers all fighters and tanks, then deploys a nuclear warhead to the testing station) results in four casualties and the complete destruction of the simulation battlefields, facilities and their weapons system.
Gone unnoticed at the time is a major seismic event that takes place on November 8, 1961 in the Pacific. The tremors are felt as far as 4,000 miles away though due to its remote, non-civilian location minimal casualties and damage occur. Naval researchers show bizarre readings of oceanic creature movements, away from the epicenter.
