A for Andromeda Edit
Christine was a laboratory assistant under Doctor Madeleine Dawnay at a military research facility in Thorness, Scotland. She was part of the team responsible for the construction of an advanced supercomputer, which was based on a set of instructions retrieved from a subspace signal originating in the Andromeda Galaxy. The computer was situated between two terminals which projected a pattern of energy, which affected the brainwaves of anyone who passed between them, placing them into a hypnotic state. Christine fell victim to the machine's influence and made physical contact with both terminals. The computer produced a surge of electricity, which instantly killed the technician.
The computer extrapolated biological data from Christine's corpse and used it as the template for the creation of an artificial life form. A virtual clone of Christine was born and was named Andromeda.
Andromeda was a slave to the computer's programming and served as an instrument of the Ministry of Defence. Project scientist John Fleming, who had long suspected the true nature of the project, rebelled against his superiors, and Andromeda was sent to destroy him. Fleming convinced Andromeda to reject her programming and together, they succeeded in destroying the supercomputer as well as the original data relating to its construction. The two fled Thorness and sought sanctuary within the hills on a nearby island.
They sought refuge on an island off the coast of Scotland, but now they faced even larger problems. For the destruction of government property, they were being pursued by both agents of the Ministry of Defence as well as the Intel Trading Consortium.
