About SUPER ROBOT TAISEN: ORIGINAL GENERATION
Nearly two centuries ago, humanity advanced into space, ushering in the dawn of a new era: the Space Era. But mankind's technological progress came to a near-halt
after the devastation and turmoil caused by two meteors that struck the Earth
in the early years of the 21st century.
In 179 S.E., a third meteor, Meteor 3, landed near the Marquesas Islands in the
South Pacific. A research team dispatched by the Earth Federal Government discovered
that the "meteor" contained technology previously unknown to man. An investigative
committee was formed to analyze Meteor 3 and the technology within, which became known as Extra-Over Technology.
Dr. Bian Zoldark, head of the committee, reported to the EFG that the creators
of Meteor 3 would almost certainly come to Earth to reclaim their technology.
The EFG heeded Dr. Zoldark's warning, and began the development of humanoid
mobile units called Personal Troopers.
Now, the human race watches the skies and waits for an invasion from beyond...
