A teleportation device was found buried on Earth's surface, uncovered by Man's curiosity. Unfortunately scientists were not able to master its secrets, and reckless research became the norm. Various non-living substances were successfully sent through to distant worlds and retrieved, but when a common rat was sent through, it activated the artifact catastrophically: the device immediately teleported itself, as well as all matter in a 2,000 kilometer wide radius around it, to the planet Morgana Prime. You are one of the survivors of this incident.
Although Morgana Prime itself is devoid of sentient life, robotic war machines were found on its surface, and humans have since learned to control them telepathically. Despite the outstanding circumstances, humans still war for land and power, and with personal risk removed, it has all but gone out of control...
Shattered Galaxy contains two types of playable characters:

Excerpt from Wikipedia:
Though described as an MMORTS, Shattered Galaxy's gameplay is closer in flavor to a real-time tactics game. Instead of commanding an entire war machine, including infrastructure, supplies, resources and objectives, players are given control of a small squad of units (6 to 12), which they control alongside as many as 20 teammates, each with similar squads, and against similar opposition. Likewise, battles do not center around the destruction of the opponent's base, but rather around Points of Contention, of which there may be anywhere from one to five. These "POCs" are reddish circles on the ground which must be seized by occupying them for a certain period of time (generally 1 minute and 30 seconds). If the attacking side ever controls all of them, they immediately win; alternately, when the game's built-in 15-minute battle timer runs out, the side with the majority of POCs is declared the winner.
