Of Robots and Men is a Time Squad fanfic made by cosmothediclonius. The story involves Time squad fighting against a new threat named the Machines of Liberties, an organization planning to reduce humanity into slavery, ruled over by robots. The story is considerably Darker and Edgier than the original show but the story and characters make it worth it.
