Conflict Internal In the very distant future there a
very few men left on Earth. Machines do all the work, and only report to men for orders. Then one day the message comes in that all men are dead. A bunch of country machines head to the city to take it over. But, then they get the message that there are very powerful machines that are fighting for control. Eventually, the decide to go to the Badlands. Along the way they lose a few companions, when they finally get to the place that they were going to suddenly they come across one of the very last... Man vs. Man (or Machine vs. Machine) The machines argue
about what to do, and where to go, and who should do what, and Machines in the city fight for control. Man vs. Nature, men slowly died off. Characters Field Minder-has a class three brain and

they reach their destination they run into the last

to what they were programmed for: Serving mankind. Climax when the machines
found the old man Falling action when the man tells
the machines to go
and get him
something to eat. Resolution When the machines
decide to go and get
him something to eat.
