Synopsis
From back cover: "Two thousand years before the events of this story, there was a terrible war within a galactic union. The war began with economic and political issues, but robots became the public issue and the conflict was to become known as the Robotoid Wars ever after. During this period of turmoil, robot technology reached its zenith and The Samuroids were created by a group of non-political geniuses to defend the rights of innocent beings as well as the rights of oppressed droids. Knowing that this technology would not remain a secret, they programmed in each Samuroid as a part of its essence a sacred brotherhood ethic based in part on a legendary Sol System culture, so that if the secret was stolen, no matter who created these super warriors, it was part of them! The Samuroids varied in proficiency and all were independent thinkers. They required the mind transcription of a human or alien intelligence. Samuroids are practically immortal if not destroyed. However, they are dependent on an obscure element known as Reiki to maintain powers. In the ensuing years, The Samuroids became without a cause and some went astray. Some, if they could obtain Reiki, search the distant galaxies for the sacred "Rune Tape". Others simply choose to "sleep." Until now..."
