About this creation
At the end of page is a description of the significance The Tiabeetus had in galactic warfare and history that you may or may not be interested in reading, but I urge you to try.
I got several comments against the use of the "pink umbrella" on my Anardika, so, striving to please, I made several worthy upgrades.
I also made a light human ground force.

The Tiabeetus, the leviathan of space, floating adrift in interversal matter, transporting caged alien slaves back to Earth.
57 years after the launch of the final shuttle Atlantis. 57 years after SEAM (Spacial Exploring And Maintenance) and NASA was put in the hands of Russia.
A lot has happened in those 57 years.
For 12 years the entire globe worked together to dive deeper into space, to discover new planets, and meet life, a division of SEAM and NASA was based in each continent to obtain equality. But the entire time, the USA division of SEAM and NASA was hiding a secret from everybody. 10 miles under the surface of Earth, a rocket was being build. Not a normal rocket, built to make it to the moon, this rocket was build for a different purpose. The USA had discovered a planet that had a natural cloaking ability. The planet was so cold, it formed an odd shield as a product of a chemical reaction caused by the heat of the sun coming in contact with a frozen chemical in the planet's atmosphere. The shield caused the planet to reflect it's surroundings, making it look like stars, and dark matter.
The USA happened upon this rare stellar anomaly by sheer dumb luck. When the Atlantis shuttle launched from Earth, halfway to the international space station the passengers noticed what they thought was either a space mirage, or they were going crazy. They witnessed what looked like an enormous area of space, bulging from it's surroundings, blurred a bit at the edges. When they were later interviewed at the space station, they estimated the bulge to be nearly twice the size of Jupiter, they said "it was as if we were looking down on an enormous frozen shock wave". But this was no shock wave.
The Atlantis crew arrived to Earth early on a separate space ship. The USA division of SEAM and NASA was told of this odd occurrence, and they kept it a secret. For 28 years, USA SEAM and NASA researched this anomaly and discovered how this was all caused by a planet, which they dubbed Pagomen. The construction of a rocket was begun 10 miles under the Earth.
55 years after the launch of the Atlantis, the rocket, Tiabeetus, took off from deep within the earth of Idaho. It was a shock wave that shook the planet, which was later excused as the deepest and wide-spread earthquake ever recorded. The Tiabeetus made it's way to the coordinates of the invisible planet Pagomen. In two years, millions of adapted alien species were captured and transported back to Earth to serve as slaves and to be taken apart for their unique physical characteristics and new elements, which were sought after for huge amounts of money. The secret of Pagomen was out, and World War III was begun over the transportation, slavery and poaching of aliens.
I appreciate any opinions, suggestions, ideas you have, thanks a lot for checking this out.
It actually looked somewhat better on the thumbnail, but it's great nonetheless. Interesting minifigging, although those gray/white aren't at their best... You know I have no idea why I'm counting bad things on it, if it's clearly awesome, and am glad I could return home with such a nice MOC waiting!
Knowing your great aptitude with the brick, my expectations are always high for you and always met. However, this time you have outdone yourself. I love the pilot's bubble at the top. You have also put a lot of thought into making it playable, which I appreciate. The story was really fun to read as well. Excellent work.
You never cease to amaze with your creativity and talent, emphasized even more so more by your age. The technical and functional aspects are where these shine, but you didn't ignore the designs in any means. Additionally, you could have stopped with a generic robot and squad, but you added some key touches to make those individual as well. To top it off I can see your carving a style through all your builds. A bright future for you Mr. Mac. Great work!
