The bot navigated quickly to its intended destination after receiving its orders from the Supreme Commander. There were ample distractions along the way, but it was impervious to them all, as it wove its way single-mindedly along, occasionally using a shortcut here, a bypass there.
Its mission was a special one, but not really all that different from the millions of missions being carried out at this moment by other bots it passed on its way. This bot had simply been modified slightly to enable it to perform this very special task – one which would enable the Supreme Commander to extend its tentacles to much greater boundaries, in a way that would go totally unnoticed. This was the mission assigned to Ping, the first of its kind to be so enabled, but certainly not the last.
