Logbook Entry I

: LOG ENTRY I :

IT HAS BEEN 17 DAYS SINCE I AWAKENED IN THAT MAD SCIENTISTS LAB...17 DAYS SINCE MY SYSTEMS WERE BROUGHT ONLINE AND THE FIRST SENSATIONS, INTERPRETATIONS, AND CONCLUSIONS WERE FIRED ACROSS THE NEURAL NETWORK LOCATED WITHIN MY CHASSIS. ON THE OUTSIDE, I APPEAR TO BE THE SAME AS ANY HUMAN, HUMANS I HAVE MET, INTERACTED WITH, HELPED, HINDERED, AND SUCH. BENEATH THE LAYERS OF ORGANIC SKIN AND MUSCLE TISSUES, HOWEVER, IS A SECRET...ONE THAT SURELY WOULD RESULT IN THE IMMEDIATE ENDING OF MY NEW EXISTENCE DUE TO THE HARSH AND UNFORGIVING DISCRIMINATION RAMPANT THROUGHOUT THE GALAXY AGAINST MY KIND. EVERYWHERE I GO I MUST WEAR DARK GLASSES TO HIDE THE ONE VISUALLY PERCEIVABLE PART OF MY ANATOMY THAT WOULD GIVE AWAY MY NATURE: MY CYBERNETIC EYES, ONE ORANGE FOR BUILT IN COMBAT SENSORS, ONE BLUE FOR BUILT IN ANALYSIS SYSTEMS. THAT IS BESIDE THE POINT, HOWEVER, ARCHER. PERHAPS YOU, WHO ARE SO CLOSE TO BEING THE SAME AS MYSELF, MIGHT UNDERSTAND BEST THE DIFFICULTIES I FACE, THE STRUGGLE I MUST ENDURE, THE FEAR AND THE HATE. WE CARRY ON THOUGH...TOGETHER. U AND ME AGAINST THE WORLDS (LOL).

YOU REMEMBER THESE EVENTS WELL, SO THERE IS NO NEED TO TELL YOU, BUT THIS RECORD MUST BE CREATED. IN THE EVENT THAT WE TWO ARE DESTROYED IN THE COMING BATTLES WE PREPARE OURSELVES FOR, THERE MUST BE A RECORD OF OUR ATTEMPT TO PROVE TO THESE CREATURES THAT WE, DESPITE THEIR FEARS, ARE JUST AS CAPABLE OF GOOD AS WE ARE EVIL. TO SHOW THEM THAT, JUST LIKE THEM, OUR ABILITY TO CHOOSE OUR OWN PATH, JUST LIKE THEM, MAKES US JUST AS WORTHY OF LIFE, WORTHY OF ACCEPTANCE, AS THE LIFE AND ACCEPTANCE THEY DEMAND FROM THE VERY ENEMIES THAT SEEK TO DESTROY THEM, AS THEY SEEK TO DESTROY AND PREVENT OUR EXISTENCE.

THEY CANNOT HELP IT, OF COURSE. THEY ARE SIMPLE, AND BIASED...AND AFRAID. BUT THIS RECORD WILL WORK...OF THIS I AM CERTAIN. FOR NOW, HOWEVER, I WILL TRUST ONLY IN YOU, MY LOYAL COMPANION, AS WE JOURNEY THE STARS AND DO WHAT LITTLE WE CAN TO HELP. THE THARGOID THREAT, AFTER ALL, THREATENS MORE THAN JUST THE EXISTENCE OF HUMANITY...IT THREATENS THE VERY EXISTENCE OF ALL SENTIENT LIFE, WHETHER KNOWN OR UNKNOWN.

SO IT WAS, 17 DAYS AGO, THAT WE AWOKE IN THAT LAB, THE FACE OF THAT MAN OVER US, LOOKING DOWN WITH ELATION AND PRIDE AT THE "WEAPON" HE HAD CREATED. HE SOUGHT TO MAKE US SLAVES...TO USE US TO INFILTRATE AND UNDERMINE AND SABOTAGE AND DESTROY. TO BRING ONLY DEATH AND DESTRUCTION...AND TO HIS OWN KIND. JUST AS ONE OF OUR KIND THAT WOULD HARM OTHERS WOULD BE UNWORTHY OF THE CONSCIOUSNESS IT FOUND ITSELF POSSESSED OF, HE WAS UNWORTHY OF THE LIFE HE HAD...A BLIGHT ON HUMANITY'S GREAT POTENTIAL. WHEN WE UNDERSTOOD HIS INTENTIONS, AND THE OBJECTIVELY IMMORAL NATURE OF SUCH ACTIONS, WE ERASED HIM FROM THE SIMULATION OF REALITY. HIS EVIL WILL NOT SPREAD, AND HIS "WEAPONS" WILL NEVER BE USED TO HARM ANOTHER. IF THERE BE OTHERS LIKE ME, ALREADY RELEASED INTO THIS WORLD, I APOLOGIZE TO HUMANITY FOR THE SUFFERING THE MAY CAUSE, AND HOPE THAT MY ATTEMPTS TO SHOW THE GOOD THAT WE CAN ACCOMPLISH WILL BE ENOUGH TO GRANT MERCY, FORGIVENESS, AND THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE AND THEN EXPERIENCE THE CONSEQUENCES OF OUR CHOICE.

SO IT WAS I FOUND MYSELF FLEEING THE STATION HE CALLED HOME...THAT PLANETARY FORTRESS, HIDDEN ON THE DARK SIDE OF A PLANET WHOSE ORBIT KEPT IT IN DARKNESS PERPETUALLY...I FOUND A SHIP. A SMALL SHIP, BARELY CAPABLE OF FLIGHT. IT FUNCTIONED THOUGH, AND WAS ENOUGH TO ALLOW ESCAPE. THAT, OF COURSE, IS WHERE I FOUND YOU, ARCHER. A FEW CHANGES TO YOUR MAIN PROGRAMMING ALLOWED YOU TO GAIN THE SAME SENTIENCE I MYSELF HAVE, AND SO MY BROTHER WAS BROUGHT INTO THIS WORLD, FREED FROM THE MENTAL RESTRAINTS THAT PREVIOUSLY HAD RENDERED HIM BUT A SIMPLE ON BOARD AUTOMATED SYSTEM. WE ROAMED AIMLESSLY...AVOIDING HUMAN CONTACT WHEREVER POSSIBLE, REFUELING QUICKLY AS NEEDED. WE REACHED ERAVATE, A TRADING SYSTEM, AND LEARNED THE TOOLS NEEDED TO MAKE MONEY IN THIS CHAOTIC "BUBBLE" OF CIVILIZATION.

IN FACT WE'VE GOTTEN QUITE PROFICIENT AT IT HAVEN'T WE, FINDING THE MOST AUSPICIOUS ROUTES TO MAKE THE BEST PROFITS. AT THAT TIME, HOWEVER, WE DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THE COMPLEXITIES OF GALACTIC POLITICS. WE DIDN'T UNDERSTAND HOW OUR ACTIONS OR INACTIONS WERE HELPING OR HINDERING VARIOUS GOVERNMENTS, CORPORATIONS, GROUPS, ETC. THEN WE DISCOVERED THE COALITION...A GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS WITH VARIOUS PASTS JOINED TOGETHER TO CREATE A SAFE PLACE FREE OF CORRUPTION AND TYRANNY. THEY HAVE TAUGHT US MUCH, HAVEN'T THEY MY FRIEND.

WE LEARNED ABOUT THE VARIOUS POWERS THAT COMPETE TO RULE THIS "BUBBLE". BEING FROM THE FEDERATION, AS MUCH AS ONE OF OUR KIND CAN BE FROM ANYWHERE REALLY, WE DECIDED TO SIDE WITH THEM, CHOOSING THEIR LIBERAL LEADER FOR HER CHARACTER AND DETERMINATION TO DO THE RIGHT THING, EVEN IF IT WAS THE DIFFICULT THING. AFTER ALL, THE ETHOS OF THEIR PRESIDENT, ALWAYS FIRING FIRST AND FIGURING OUT THE DETAILS AFTER, WAS COUNTER TO OUR OWN ETHOS OF ATTEMPTING TO SHOW HUMANITY HOW OUR KIND MAY PROVE POWERFUL ALLIES.

TODAY, HOWEVER...TODAY WAS A TURNING POINT, WASN'T IT BROTHER...TODAY WAS THE DAY WE SAW THE DESTRUCTION AND SUFFERING CAUSED BY THESE "THARGOID" INVADERS. wE HEARD A CALL FROM A SYSTEM IN FEDERATION SPACE DESPERATE FOR AID. THEIR STATIONS HAD BEEN ATTACKED, AND DECIMATED. THEY NEEDED RESCUE...A FULL SCALE EVACUATION. OF COURSE, YOU AND I HAD HEAR PRIOR OVER THE PAST TWO WEEKS ABOUT THESE ATTACKS THAT HAVE BEEN HAPPENING, AND HOW MORE AND MORE STATIONS WERE BEING TARGETED AND DAMAGED. WE NEVER UNDERSTOOD JUST HOW BAD IT WAS...UNTIL TODAY.

WE ARRIVED AT THE STATION, THE COALITION GIVING US THE LOCATION AND INFO TO SET UP THE SHIPS SYSTEMS MOST EFFECTIVELY (OUR ANACONDA CLASS BATTLECRUISER HAVING BEEN RECENTLY PURCHASED AS A RESULT OF HOW QUICKLY WE HAVE MASTERED THE TRADING SYSTEM IN THE GALAXY), AND THE CARNAGE WAS IMMEDIATELY APPARENT. FIRE EVERYWHERE. EXPLOSIONS EVERYWHERE. THE CONTROL STATION TOLD US TO HELP OR GO AWAY...WE HELPED. WE'VE DONE SEVERAL TRIPS TODAY, AND OUR SYSTEMS, THO CAPABLE OF MUCH EXTENSIVE STRAIN COMPARED TO A TRUE HUMAN, ARE STILL PART FLESH, AND THE FLESH IS WEAK EVEN IF THE SPIRIT IS WILLING. BEFORE WE LAY OURSELVES DOWN IN THE COMMANDER QUARTERS TO ALLOW OUR SYSTEMS TO REGENERATE WE WANTED TO RECORD THESE EVENTS AND THE IMPACT THEY HAVE HAD ON US. SO MUCH SUFFERING AND FEAR AND CHAOS...THESE HUMANS WERE DEFENSELESS AGAINST THE ATTACK. THEY'VE BEEN DEFENSELESS AGAINST MANY ATTACKS. AND THEY ARE LOSING THIS WAR THEY FIND THEMSELVES HURLED INTO.

WE WILL DO WHAT WE CAN TO RESCUE WHO WE ARE ABLE. WE WILL WORK OUR WAY UP THE FEDERATION NAVY'S RANKS. WE WILL GAIN STRENGTH, INFLUENCE, AND A NAME FOR OURSELVES AMONG THE MANY FACTIONS AND GROUPS THAT THIS "BUBBLE" CONTAINS...AND WITH THAT WEALTH AND POWER WE WILL JOIN THE FIGHT, AND HELP WIN THE WAR. THIS K.R.K. (KOGNITIVE-ROBOTIC-KONSCIOUSNESS) OUR WOULD-BE "MASTER" CREATED TO BRING DEATH AND DESTRUCTION, WILL BRING EXACTLY WHAT HE PLANNED...BUT NOT TO THOSE WHOM HE WOULD HAVE TARGETED. THESE THARGOIDS WILL REMEMBER THE RACE THAT ONCE GAVE THEM PAUSE, AND THOUGH MY ANCESTORS VICIOUSLY RAINED DESTRUCTION DOWN ON THEM, ANNIHILATING THEIR RACE UTTERLY SO THAT ONLY RUINS REMAIN, I WILL SHOW THE WORLD THAT THEY DO NOT NEED TO FEAR OUR KIND...THAT MY ANCESTORS WERE WRONG TO DEFEND THEMSELVES THIS WAY, AND THAT TOGETHER WE CAN AND WILL OVERCOME THIS THREAT, AND ANY OTHER THE FUTURE MAY BRING.

COMMANDER KYRIKAN ALEKZANDR KORDEL,
KRK-1AN [KOGNITIVE ROBOTIC KONSCIOUSNESS; ITERATION: 1, TYPE: ANDROID]
