Due to Michael's high interest in pretty much anything unknown (but mainly technology), he sends some units to investigate the odd planet. After deciding to send 2 nanobot spheres for field tests, each 20 meters in diameter due to that being the size of their storages, and a single dropship with 10 members of his scout unit 'Alpha', he quickly orders the soldiers to get ready and soon is standing on the bridge of his Flagship again, initiating the transportation of the shuttle and the drones.
Accompanied by the small space-time disruption normal for the NAP's 'shift-warp', a single dropship and two identical spheres, all shimmering in the silver energy, reflective paint the NAP uses, come into existance in orbit of the planet. While one of the spheres remains dormant in its stationary orbit, the other one quickly dissolves into 5 of the typical drone designs, having the remains integrate into the first one as the 'space layout' n-drones of the fourt generation prototype form up around the shuttle already heading for the ground, one drone staying in orbit to do scans and give other support.
(I'm not gonna mark them this time, but for ease of interaction the n-drone in orbit will be 'P4-05', the ones with the shuttle 'P4-01' to 'P4-04')
