Description[edit | edit source]
X-S Tech is an alien corporation which travels the galaxy trading advanced technology which they manufacture. According to the company, they are the universe's number 1 pioneers of, "Electro Robotics, Cryo Cybernetics, Techno Surveillance, Planetary Restructuring, Genetic Engineering, and Hyperspatial Transport". They were mainly based from an alien planet inhabited by green humanoids who the majority of staff appeared to be composed of. The company is however fairly notable for its highly amoral capitalist dealings, frequently coming at the expense of those affiliated with it at great cost.
Products:[edit | edit source]
- The Simulated Intelligence Robotics Series: This was a series of robot manufactured by X-S Tech which they also employed for their own profit.
- Technobotic Oratorical Mechanism Series 2000: One of the android units that was utilized by X-S tech.
- Genetic Engineering:
- Hyper-Spatial Transports:
- X-S Series 1000 Teleportation Tube: This was a form of hyper-spatial transport which contained organisms and dissipated their molecules to be projected at high speeds across space. While its intended function was for teleportation, it was shown to also be capable of indefinitely suspending molecules within the air which effectively destroyed and disintegrated organisms victim to it. Even when fully operational, this device was known to burn and mutilate organisms transported by it upon arrival.
- Planetary Restructuring:
- X-S Series 5000 Rescue Unit: These were all-terrain vehicles used by X-S Tech in partnership with the U.S. government for colonial operations of alien planets.
Subsidiaries[edit | edit source]
- PNN News: The Pan Galactic News Network was an intergalactic news network which was sponsored by X-S Tech. 
- RoboMart: RoboMart was a subsidiary of X-S Tech which built, collected, and sold robots.
History[edit | edit source]
X-S Tech was a prominent tech company in the galaxy which offered advanced technology and which was lead by the highly amoral chairman L.C. Clench. When one of the company's research probes located Earth, Clench went about forming connections with the planet and its governments for personal profit. Amongst the company's customers were the United Galactic Federation which X-S supplied with tech to use for their Galactic Armada and prison facilities. X-S Tech also served as patron to the Pan-Galactic News Network and likely manipulated their news reporting when relating to less favourable stories of the corporation.
When one of the company's research probes located Earth, Clench went about forming connections with the planet and its governments. For unknown reasons, X-S Tech sent their subsidiary Robo-Mart to Earth's futurist colony of Tomorrowland before arranging their official debut on the planet. Through unknown (likely morally dubious) means, Robo-Mart came into possession of several robots affiliated with Tomorrowland including Timekeeper and 9-Eye from the Metropolis Institute of Time Travel, and Tom Morrow 2.0 who was the robotic successor to Tomorrowland's mayor Tom Morrow that was used in the colony of EPCOT, Florida.
Around 2002, the Galactic Federation Prisoner Teleport Center which utilized X-S Technology suffered from a security break when the interstellar criminal Experiment 626 was sent to the facility. 626 hijacked one of the X-S Series 1000 teleportation systems to teleport himself to Florida on Earth and later escape to Tomorrowland. In Tomorrowland, 626 crashed a Galaxy Day celebration by robbing Robo-Mart of several robots to use in a show.
At some point following this event, Clench joined with the Tomorrowland Chamber of Commerce to hold a demonstration of X-S's of X-S Series 1000 teleportation systems within the the Tomorrowland Convention Centre as a means of garnering business on Earth. While the original plan was to transport human guests to X-S' planet to meet Clench, Clench changed plans last-minute and had the scientists send him to Tomorrowland instead. Due to an error caused by the rushed teleportation, Clench was transported to an unidentified alien planet while a giant carnivorous alien creature was teleported to Earth in his place. Said creature killed several audience and crew-members in the convention centre before being contained though Clench's own fate remains unknown. It is possible he was trapped in molecular animation as shown with a demonstration of teleportation in the pre-show, that he was warped onto the hostile alien planet, or that he was genetically hybridized with the alien monster itself.
By the 2010s, Clench and X-S Tech became suppliers of Taneleer Tivan AKA The Collector, an alien being known as one of the Elders of the Universe. Tivan and his organization the Tivan Group ran the Tivan Collection from his fortress which was composed of artifacts and organisms from across the universe kept in bondage for his pleasure. X-S would supply Tivan with the technology which he required to maintain security within his fortress though this would be thrown into chaos when Tivan kidnapped the group known as the Guardians of the Galaxy (consisting of Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer and Star-Lord) whose breakout devastated his building while causing its specimens to be released.

Appearances and allusions[edit | edit source]
ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter[edit | edit source]
X-S Tech served as a major player within this Magic Kingdom attraction where they operate the demonstration at the Tomorrowland Convention Centre but send a hyper-carnivorous alien to Earth.
Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT![edit | edit source]
An invoice from Clench and X-S Tech addressed to the Tivan Group and its leader Taneleer Tivan is featured in Tivan's office in this attraction. Said invoice being for technology purchased by Tivan, specifically, "Electro Robotics, Cryo Cybernetics, Techno Surveillance, Planetary Restructuring, Genetic Engineering, and Hyperspatial Transport" which X-S prided itself in. This reveals that X-S was largely responsible for the security systems within the Collector's Fortress and Tivan Collection.
Invasion! An ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter[edit | edit source]
X-S appears in this DisneyQuest game/attraction where he collaborates with the U.S. government to send the X-S Series 5000 Rescue Unit to human colonies on an alien planet which were under attack by several aliens.
Removed "SMTV" videos played in the queue for Magic Kingdom's Space Mountain mentioned X-S Tech as the sponsors for the PNN.
Rockettower Plaza[edit | edit source]
The Robo-Newz robot used to sell newspapers detailing the events of ExtraTERRORestrial on the front page on the Tomorrowland Times.
Stitch's Supersonic Celebration[edit | edit source]
X-S Tech is present in this attraction via RoboMart, the subsidiary of X-S Tech dedicated to robot trading. This subsidiary is robbed by Stitch to obtain robotic accomplices.
Stitch's Great Escape![edit | edit source]
In the defunct and disdained attraction Stitch's Great Escape!, the X-S logo appeared on tech used by the Galactic Federation Prisoner Teleport Center. Notably its logo appeared on the chairs which guests would be strapped down in as Stitch burped in their face in a dark room for approximately five minutes.
Connections[edit | edit source]
EPCOT[edit | edit source]
RoboMart was shown selling Tom Morrow 2.0, a character from EPCOT's Innoventions that was the successor to Tomorrowland mayor Tom Morrow.
In the Collector's fortress is a tank containing Figment from Journey Into Imagination, bound and monitored with what is presumably X-S technology.
One of the books in the Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen is titled Creatures from Space! by Clench. If not written by chairman L.C. Clench himself, it might be written by a relative of the chairman's.
The RoboMart is shown selling the Timekeeper and 9-Eye who were the robotic protagonists of this attraction.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- X-S Tech was ExtraTERRORestrial's analogue to the Weyland-Yutani Corporation from the Alien films.
- In the original script for the attraction, the teleportation demonstration would have been a front for Clench to release the alien on unsuspecting humans to study its functionality as a potential living weapon. It has been theorized and speculated that this might still be the case for the final attraction but that it is hidden. Elements of this theory including:
- Chairman Clench insisting on using the teleportation tubes to go to Earth despite the pre-show showing how the tubes cause painful mutilations which Clench likely would have been aware of.
- X-S being known for dealing in the genetic-engineering trade and the audience being made aware of this in the pre-show.
- It can be presumed that ExtraTERRORestrial is set at some point between roughly 2002 and 2014 given how Skippy seemingly dies in ExtraTERRORestrial but is alive in Stitch's Great Escape and how X-S would have likely been active on earth by the time of Mission Breakout.
