Orbiting Saturn, The Citadel is notable for its genetic, pharmacological, and robotic research labs controlled by an artificial intelligence program, the Sentient Hyper-Optimized Data Access Network, or SHODAN. It was designed as a semi-intelligent data network guided by logic and morality programs, and it remained self-sufficient until, of course, it's sabotaged. In 2072, a hacker breaks into the TriOptimum network but is quickly apprehended. Rather than putting him away, the VP of Marketing, Edward Diego, cut him a deal: reprogram SHODAN and be exempt from punishment with a military-grade neural interface implant as reward. After modifying SHODAN's programming, the neural implant is installed into the hacker's brain and is put into a 6 month long healing coma. SHODAN begins to act up and does things like jettisoning a pod full of TriOptimum executives into deep space while cutting off their life support and destroying a shuttle full of soldiers with its automated defense system. Even worse, Diego and SHODAN release a mutagen into the Beta grove pod and massacre most of the Citadel's crew, with the rest being transformed into cyborgs. Our hacker wakes up 6 months later to find the space station deserted... save for the mutants, cyborgs, and death dealing security bots. He valiantly sets out to undo his work but firsts jettisons the Beta grove contaminated by the experimental mutagen. Now, the hacker must defeat Edward Diego and destroy SHODAN before it can reach Earth! Have fun! --- Who is Polaris? http://bit.ly/14Z6vUP Want more from Polaris?
