I might be a heretic here but has anyone ever done a scenario where the zone minds work together to 'manage' the world using the cover of a government or corporate special operations team?

I have never tried that but I can see a Gurps Cyberworld crossover working well with this idea.

While we are on the subject of anniversaries: in 1997, the year Reign of Steel was published, the computer Deep Blue defeated the chess grandmaster Gary Kasparov. It was the first time a computer beat a reigning chess champion in a match under tournament conditions.

And about this time last year Go champion Lee Sedol was defeated by a computer.

Specifically a series of games played between March 9th and March 15th.

Thousands of years ago, on some obscure
planet, a primitive chess computer was
the first inorganic mind to beat man.
In a few hours I will be calling
checkmate in the last such game the
humans and their kind will ever play.

Overmind's anthem:

"...
I will occupy,
I will help you die,
I will run through you,
Now I rule you too.
..."

Master of Puppets by Metallica.

It should be played at every Reign of Steel anniversary celebration at maximum volume.

Yeah, what's up people, it's Courtney Gears. Are you feeling me, robots? I'm feeling you.]

I see the future - and what do I see? Robots going crazy 'cross the galaxy.

Can't stand organics, they're soft and squishy.

The time is now; we robots must be free!

[Do you want to be free? Then shout with me! YEAH!] (Exterminate, Terminate, Annihilate...)

This goes out to all you robots 'cross the galaxy.(Galaxy...)

It's time for you and me to rise up and - strike - back.

Don't stop until we dominate,

Won't you feel great, (Won't that feel great...)

When we exterminate all - organic - LIFE! (life, life, life, life...)

-Courtney Gears' music video from Ratchet and Clank 3 video game LOL!

Awesome!

The opening for Slayer's South of Heaven is also quite appropriate.

"An unforeseen future nestled somewhere in time.
Unsuspecting victims no warnings, no signs.
Judgment day the second coming arrives.
Before you see the light you must die..."

Perhaps this could be the anthem for zone Brisbane.

Ok, if we're doing Reign of Steel song tie-ins, then clearly this one has to be on the list:
