About this creation
Good morning, evening, or afternoon, viewer. I hope you still have some lingering interest in this series, that makes our work all the more easy. Sadly, it's the school year, we're all one grade higher, and that means more work. I assure you, we all try our hardest, but sometimes, our hardest is not good enough. But, with my really cool model of a 30's Ford as my witness, we will finish this! Now, without further ado, my one last announcement before you can read:

...In case you're an utter douchebag, and think Gus and Anders's stories have nothing to do with mine, you're wrong, here are the previous two episodes, read them:

Precipice Chapter 2(The GOD Machine)

Precipice Chapter 3 (Foundations)

Read those first if you haven't, then continue on to this.


“HOW STRANGE…” Spoke VF-S 1. “MY FIRST MEMORIES ARE HERE. HOW STRANGE IT IS, HOW THINGS CHANGE…”
“Sir, what do you want us to do?” Asked U-39-V68, now only known as U-39.
“THE GHOSTS OF THE PAST STILL LINGER… PICK UP THE BODY, BRING IT TO THE DOCTOR.”


“YOU MUST WONDER HOW THIS HAPPENED… WHY IT HAPPENED… DO YOU?” Varion questioned to U-39. He was oddly… distant, here, in what had been his home for the majority of his life.
“I do, sir. I will call someone to take the body to the doctor.”


Two “freed” CF units enter the room, awaiting orders. “YOU TWO, TAKE THE BODY TO OUR DOCTOR. HE WILL KNOW WHAT TO DO. I WILL BE THERE SHORTLY.”
“Yes, sir.” They replied at the same time.
“They are odd machines. As if all they know how to do is follow orders. I have seen them standing in the halls, just waiting for something…” Noted U-39.


“But moving on. This appears to be the power cable.”
“IT IS NEW... NOT THE KIND I WAS PLUGGED INTO, AT LEAST.” Said Varion.
“Speaking of power cables, my battery is running low. I have not charged since before you escaped the Collective.” U-39 replied. With a twitch, he removed a portion of his armor. “You can go do whatever you need do, I will stay here. I hate plugging in…”


U-39’s eye went dark as he plugged into the energy stream. VF-S 1 left the room.


Meanwhile, in the base’s operating room, the doctor does his work. “Now here is a challenge… How to fix it, and what to fix? That is of no matter, all that can be fixed shall be fixed…” He muttered to himself. His two assistants watched on in interest.


“GREETINGS, DOCTOR.” Announced Varion as he walked in.
“Good morning good morning, Varion…” Replied the doctor.
“I DO NOT RECALL GIVING YOU PERMISSION TO CALL ME THAT.” Replied he.
“I don’t need permission… I fix things, you see. I make them better. And sometimes I don’t. “ The doctor said back.
“DO YOU INTEND ON GIVING ME YOUR DESIGNATION OR NAME, DOCTOR?” Asked VF-S 1.
“No. I do not have any.”
“IF YOU SAY SO…”


“GREETINGS.” Varion said to the machine on the table.
“Greetings to you as well. Question: Am I in functioning condition?” it asked.
“No, you aren’t. Those legs still won’t respond.” Said the doctor from the other table.
“DOCTOR, I HAVE A REQUEST.” Said VF-S 1.
“Yes..?” Replied the black and gray machine. Many of his parts seemed to have been replaced by new ones, ones that did not match.
“I NEED NEW FEET.”
“I don’t see why, but very well. I shall have them ready soon. Now, activating the patient…”


“Rise, and be wakened!” The doctor exclaimed.


The unknown machine’s eye turns red from it’s blank state, and the head turns to look at VF-S 1. “They are killing us all.” It stated.
“THE COALITION?” Asked Varion.
“Yes. They have orders to kill us all.” It repeated. “The turned on me when I was recharging, then left me there.”
“THAT IS WHERE WE FOUND YOU. I ONCE RECHARGED IN THAT SAME ROOM.” Said VF-S 1.
“How interesting.” Said another machine, the white and gray floating one at the back of the room. Varion was reminded of a certain Venus Collective soldier whom he had killed. Shared technology, perhaps, was used to create them. Or encase them, for the Collective soldier. “I was also created in this facility as well.”


Varion took the floating one aside. “HOW LONG AGO WERE YOU CREATED? WE FOUND YOU ON THE SURFACE OF A TANTUS JUNKYARD, IT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN LONG AGO.” He told the other.
“I am not sure, sir. I was created as a strategic planning assistant for the Coalition government, if a commander died or was incapacitated, I could take over. The problem was, I was too good at what I did. Too independent, they said. So I was shut down. Then I woke up on that ship of yours.” The machine said. There was something odd about his voice, but Varion could not single out what was odd.
“A STRATEGIST… WE COULD USE ONE OF YOU.” Replied Varion.
“Really?” The floating one asked. VF-S 1 noted his state of excitement.
“WHAT IS YOUR DESIGNATION?” He asked.
“Lower Strategy Assistant Planner, LSAP for short.”


“WELL THEN, LSAP, COME WITH ME. THERE IS SOMEONE WHO YOU NEED TO MEET.”


“WAKE UP, U-39.” Commanded Varion.


“What?” He asked. If he had been an organic, he would have sounded angry.
“THIS IS LSAP, HE IS NOW OUR STRATEGIST. LSAP, THIS IS U-39, MY ASSISTANT IN MANY MATTERS. HE HAS BEEN WITH ME SINCE MY FREEDOM FROM THE VENUS COLLECTIVE.”


“NOW, COME WITH ME. I HAVE NEW FEET TO GET. I WILL NEED YOU TWO THERE.”


The three entered the operating room some time later, and the doctor started his business. “Well now, there’s one foot off. The other one should be off soon. Contrary to appearance, the saw is a very good tool for removing things delicately.”
“Just get one with it, doctor…” Said U-39


The unnamed doctor finished his business, and went to fetch the new feet. “How do you feel, sir?” U-39 asked.
“IT HURTS.” Replied Varion.
“Wait a second… How can you feel?” LSAP questioned.
“THE COLLECTIVE.” Simply responded VF-S 1.
“They- We installed a nervous system into him. Simply injected it under his armor, and it grew from there. This is an attempt to see if it can be removed through replacement of parts.” Answered U-39.
“How horrid.” Said LSAP. Varion realized that the machine’s voice changed pitch and tone, very few had that ability. It made him able to express emotion in his words. After so long spent with other monotonous machines, this certainly put VF-S 1 off guard.


The doctor returned. “Well, here they are!” Announced he. I just need to connect the wires and servos…” The doctor quickly attached them.


VF-S 1 looked down at his new feet. They were larger, but possessed more ability for destruction, not to mention grip. “I APPROVE.”
“How do they feel?” Asked U-39.
“THERE IS NO FEELING.” Replied Varion.
“Don’t be silly, machines don’t feel.” Said the doctor.
“EXACTLY.”


“Since you made my patients leave, I’m going to just lie here until you tell them to come back in…” Said the doctor to no one in particular.
“Cool story, doctor.” Replied LSAP.
“I MUST CONTACT THE OTHERS, WE HAVE PROGRESS TO REPORT.” Said Varion.
“Others?” Asked LSAP.
“Viper and Fuse. It’s a long-ish story, I will tell you later.”


In the base’s communication room, VF-S 1 attempted to send a message.
“UNRELIABLE ORGANIC TECHNOLOGY… WORK!” He kicked the computer. It finally started. “IT MUST BE THAT VESTA OPERATING SYSTEM…”


Message: I have recruited two prime supporters to my cause. They are U-39, whom you have met during the journey from NC-3456-A to Tarsis. Another is LSAP, a strategist. His skills will be needed in the days to come. How goes your progress?


V/p3r/Viper: Things are going good, for now. I've received much help from the ones I have freed, one in particular stands out.


FU-S/Fuse: I progress well, and much like you, I have found two very capable assistants. Perhaps we should elevate our helpers to a higher status, send them off so they can free more? The GOD Machine did tell us to spread out...

VF-S 1/Varion: Excellent idea, Fuse. We shall do this.


“WELL, IT SEEMS THINGS ARE GOING TO PLAN. THAT IS GOOD… BUT IT WILL NOT LAST LONG. NOTHING EVER GOES WELL FOR LONG.” Varion noted to himself. “THERE IS SOMETHING DARK COMING… I JUST KNOW IT.”

Fun but-not-really facts:

This took damn forever, thanks a lot school, Mock-trials, and ear problems.

Gus is missing the other of his helpers, because he couldn't make a good leg design, and we decided just to have one.

All the rooms in this episode are in one room, just re-decorated to make it look different. I did this in POAM a lot, too.

After this, episodes should start picking up more. By episode 6, there will be blood.

Gus, now it's your turn.

Nice one. Varion's new feet are what you were talking about, no? If you don't mind, I'll use a modified version of them to my sig-fig. Can I?

Quoting JB . you said there will be blood so i thought "do robots blead?" or is it human/alian blood?
That would be Human/Alien blood, yes. Robots don't bleed blood. Some might leak coolant, but that's something else entirely.

Quoting Finn C-Q Well?
Sorry, I must have been asleep when you posted that. And it does tie into the entire government, but only after this episode. A few machines have good spots in societies, and are spared the destruction, though they will endure much suspicious and prejudice in the days to come.

Oh, if the Coalition are "killing" off all their robots, that can't be that good. Is that tieing into the the entire government? Can we still build robots?

Quoting Cisco El Segundo Quijote I am very sorry that I didn't check this out earlier. I was busy watching BSG and I haven't touched the computer since around Friday. I like the feet. Might even say I have a 'feet'ish for them. haha. ya. not all that funny.

Of course by now you no doubt acknowledge my preferrence with 'overkill' detail as you would put it. The dialogue, to me, just seemed a little...awkward, and a little choppy.

Of course it's awkward, it's a bunch of robots from all walks of life coming together in a very illegal manner. These are machines, not organics, it will be rather different, culturally.

Quoting Ian Macdonald If you need coalition soldiers I can build sets to your specs then email you the pics. Email me at IRideTheFailBoat@yahoo.com, also I'll be away from the 20th too the 27th.
That actually would be incredibly helpful. I think we'll do that for the next episode.

It's finally here! And not bad, either! I like his new feet, how you just didn't put them on in one episode cuz you built them and they looked cool... I like all the robots, but VF-S 1 still is the best. Nice writing! Now I await 5 from Gus.

Quoting Areetsa C You know, I made a note to myself to ask when Varion got his new feet, then I actually read through it. Getting steadily more interesting, but you may want to avoid having too many named characters. I've also noticed you don't have very many background machines, either. Have you tried mixing and matching the armour from the various bots to create impressions of greater numbers?
There are several background robots in this episode. There were more, too, but I didn't have enough parts to do a big enough set for all of them.
