THE STEVENS ONLINE WORLD OF LOS ANGELES 2019
Early in the 21st Century,
THE TYRELL CORPORATION advanced Robot evolution
into the NEXUS phase -- a being virtually identical to a human -- known as a replicant.
The NEXUS 6 Replicants were superior in strength and agility,
and at least equal in intelligence, to the genetic engineers who created them.
Replicants were used Off-world as slave labor, in the hazardous exploration
and colonization of other planets.
After a bloody mutiny by a NEXUS 6 combat team in an Off-world colony,
Replicants were declared illegal on earth
-- under penalty of death.
Special police squads -- BLADE RUNNER UNITS
-- had orders to shoot to kill,
any trespassing Replicants.
This was not called execution.
It was called retirement.
