It seems that Mars waited until we were totally distracted by the revelation of Maria’s origins to launch a mass assault on the base. Fortunately Luis had been keeping an eye on the exterior monitors and saw them coming.
These were the robots whose only function we’ve observed is carrying rocks. Apparently the goal was to send them careening into the base, which would’ve effectively destroyed it with no survivors. The only thing that saved everyone was that the robots’ radio frequency for receiving commands wasn’t changed.
Because of that Samantha was able to stop them. It makes one wonder, though, why the entity controlling them didn’t reset the frequency the way we did with Humpty. It seems pretty basic.
After all these months on Mars we still don’t know what we’re dealing with.
