In the year 2050, a rebel group of techno hackers uncovered a way to generate enough energy to power their weapon systems in order to defend themselves against the endless onslaught of their robot overlords. Now armed with fission grenades as well as rail guns and laser guns; they fought against the enemy bot net, destroying one of their main datacenter power sources. The day of this insurgent victory later became known as Solhacker Freedom Day.
As the Cyber War between humanity and AI raged on, the SOL City District 2 - X - became a barren wasteland, uninhabitable by humans and robots alike. The location eventually became radioactive and began to generate quasar-like EMP bursts. This tear in space and time became the very first Vortex gateway that, once fully understood, opened up the Exaverse to humanity and thus began the exploration of parallel dimensions and time travel.
