The Zentradi Factory Satellite was an enormous automated weapons production factory that produced aircraft, mecha and ships for the Zentradi forces. This mega structure had a height of 3,000 kilometers and a width at least twice that size. Following the devastation of Earth at the end of Space War I, U.N. Spacy sought to restore its military power in the event of another alien attack. In October 2011, a joint force comprised of U.N. Spacy personnel and Zentradi forces led by Britai Kridanik began an operation to capture a Zentradi Factory Satellite for this purpose. The joint force used the cultural shock of a baby and a kiss to surprise the Zentradi garrison defending the satellite and defeat its commander, Dagao. Afterward, the Factory Satellite folded back to Earth and placed in a stable orbit at a Lagrange point. Due to its immense size, the Factory Satellite was visible from Earth with the naked eye. Initially, the Factory Satellite was beset with production problems resulting from damage over many years by Supervision Army attacks. Eventually, the Factory Satellite was repaired and reconfigured to manufacture U.N. Spacy equipment. Following the success of the capture operation, U.N. Spacy embarked on more missions to seize other Factory Satellites from Zentradi control. In May 2029, an explosion at the first captured Factory Satellite destroyed the dock and the under construction ships Megaroad-24 and Megaroad-25.
