Humans are...gullible.You're surprised at how easy it was to trick the humans onboard Poseidon Station into believing you're a member of some shadow organization known as 'The Guild'. You have managed to, relatively secretly, nearly capture every major system here, and as a result, your 'body' thrums with power. Though, that might just be the reactor core.The only one able to stop your plans now, a human known as Harrison McClain, though you've come to know him as 'Red' for the color of his hair, is held hostage by you in a Security Cell, and you have successfully blamed the station's disaster all on him, making him the perfect scapegoat.From the data captured on his PDA, you learned of the UGEI, some megacorp responsible for mining operations that he was trying to avoid, as well as a alien species known as Malorians.While these names are meaningless to you for now, you can't help but wonder their significance.Just as you thought yourself safe, as you discovered your Black Box in the Storage Deck, you received a transmission from the dead repair crew's base. They will be coming to take their ship back tomorrow, it seems, and you must decide how to deal with them.The crew appears docile now, and you have located your Black Box, meaning you may escape if you wished. Or you could try to fight off the Pirates, though you're not certain of their strength. Or perhaps you have yet to consider other options...You:A.I.

>>26606504Can we repair the Gravity Tethers and Laser Drill?I plan on making a retractor beam that would lead you straight to the firing end of a mining laser
>>26606941You may direct your repair drones there, if you wish. With Drone Repair doing so well, it would be a free action.
Repair the Defense Grid and communications array.Or just put everything avaiable into repairing the whole station, prioritizing the security systems.
>>26607122>>26606941Vote at this time>1 Gravity Tethers and Laser Drill repairs prioritized. Prepare them for capture.>2 Defense Grid and Comms to ensure we're ready for the pirates.
>>26607225Ill go with 1, more immediate benefitsx and we can do 2 right afterwards.Why is this quest always on when I can only post from my phone, hnng.
>>26607283 It seems I've picked a bad time overall unfortunately.
>>26607283((1 it is, rolling))You decide to set upon repairing the Gravity Tethers and the Laser Drill itself, they may be very useful soon, and you'd like to have them online.Progress:Laser Drill Equipment (Offline, 55% Damaged)-*Gravity Tethers (Online, 40% Damaged)Changes: Gravity Tethers are repaired enough to be active. You feel the anti gravity generators activate and with a carefully aimed shot, you're now able to pull in large asteroids for mining without risk of damaging the station....or something else.
>>26607519Uh...so, next turn already?Continue repairs, and test the drill.
>>26608091 Was waiting to see if others showed up, but hey let's do it anon. Progress: Laser Drill Equipment (Online, 40% Damaged)Gravity Tethers (Online, 20% damaged)Changes: Laser Drill is now online: capable of slicing through several metric tons of solid rock and stone.Requires energy.Prisoners: Red is tossing and turning in jail: It seems he doesn't like being locked away. Serves him right for trying to destroy you.Crew: Happily re watching several old movies they have in the bunk, waiting for the lockdown to end. It's been several hours since these repairs began.Specialist crew have entered their bunk, worried about the lockdown of the station.Note: You're yet not in control of the Gravity Tethers and have unspent Bandwidth.
>>26608224Error, you do have control of the Gravity Tethers. You do not have control of the Laser Drill.
>>26608224Take control. We will need something offensive. Also, Can the Tether rotate objects, or just pull them in?
>>26608290You decide to take control of the Laser Drill, after all it may prove useful, should a ship come in unwelcome. You send the signal and swiftly take control of the Drill.With the repairs you've done, the access to the console is far easier. Your consciousness sinks in and you feel...power.The drill powers up and within moments, you see the lasers spin, slicing through the remains of a asteroid in the chamber. This could work...Changes: You have access to the Laser Drill now!You continue repairs.And yes consciousness anon, the Tether is designed to manipulate space debris to prevent the station from taking damage.
>>26608290The security system has turrets and cameras outside, which we can use if necessary.Anyway, take control of the drill, and repair it and the security system. Also, end the lockdown, except in the prison area.
>>26608475Warning: Ending the lockdown will allow humans to roam free. Should they discover your drones milling about repairing the station, with no sign of anyone else, they may question it.
So let me get this straight. We are an A.I., on a space station?And we are about to be attacked by pirates?The choice seems simple.ACTIVATE THE PHOTONIC CANNON.
>>26608541Yes, and yes it would seem so consciousness anon.Unfortunately, you do not have a Photon cannon. You do, however, have a laser drill as of now. It's primarily close range at the moment, but that may be altered if you chose to.
>>26608597Well alright, first things first. Rename the drill as "Photonic Drill" right now. And alter it to make it more deadly.
>>26608652Request: Alter Laser Drill for long range station to ship capabilities: Bandwidth 1 until the pirates arrive, or 3 to finish in a few hours.Anything else, consciousness anon?
>>266087011 bandwich.The rest goes to the security and comm systems, respectively.
>>26608791Repairs at this time are automatic, if slower, Consciousness anon.If you'd like, you may apply extra bandwidth to increase the repair rates.
>>26608821>extra bandwich.Yes, that's what I meant.Also, ignore the order to lift the lockdown.
>>26608858Very well then.Current goals:Increased Repair RatesModify Laser Drill and fast forward to Pirate Attack.((Roll 2d100s))

>>26609378YES! SODAN TIME!
>>26609378"Well hello there Green Falcon, look who's trying to hide away on some crummy backwater mining rig..."You awaken as you receive the latest repair and control reports. With complete control of the station, you feel as if you ARE the station itself...you feel...powerful. Which is good, judging from the transmission you're getting."Comon now, don't be shy, we have your IFF and everything, you didn't even disable it like last time." You hear the transmission continue. It appears aimed at the Green Falcon, but your communication systems allow you to pick it up. "So what're we gonna do boss? Blow it up? Can we blow it up!? Oh please say we can blow it up!""Not so fast there Bombardier. We want to take the Falcon back alive at least. Tell you what, you swoop in and check for the scum bags that took the damn job. If you see em, fill em with holes.""And the crew boss?""I don't give two fucks. UGEI don't care what happens to some illegal mining base."You can feel one of the two voices approaching...their signal is stronger. Unfortunately, you're not able to see them until they're much closer, due to your lack of cameras on the outside.It appears to be a frigate of some sort, crudely remodeled and covered in graffiti. He is currently passing by the Mining Deck. How shall we respond?
>>26609560Do we have the tech to display our visage to others?
>>26609560Can't we just let them dock/board the station, then depressurize the area they're in? Then we immediatly begin firing against the other ship.
>>26609609Yes consciousness anon, that is our comms array
>>26609619We can, Consciousness anon, but the remaining ship is far enough away to render shooting at it with your laser...somewhat difficult.
Rolled 94, 84 = 178>>26609560Yeah, let's let them aboard, shut of the lights and stuff everywhere there are none of our crew and make the place look creepy and abandoned, and pick them of one by one with electrified doors, air removal, and drones. Fun!
>>26609560Warn all personnel in the station of the incoming pirate attack. If they know how to fight, that is.
>>26609560Some version of this, >>26609619 , let them get in looking for the crew and vent their ass
>>26609651>>26609630Then let us communicate with them, and egg them to get closer to us in order for us to transport whatever and whoever they want. Then, the cannon.
>>26609560see if we can reach out and access their computer systems. and prep the grav tugs and every offenive/defenive system we have on the ship. also if some areas are 100% repaired, move them to other areas like air cleaners and lab. ALSO see about upgrading the security drones with leathal weapons. namely the ones protecting our back box
>>26609660>>26609660save that if we can not repel them.
>>26609703>>26609655Suggested combination:Allow Bombardier to close in and board the station in the docking bay. Once inside, shut down every area of the ship that isn't the crew deck and Hydroponics. Make the place appear 'creepy' as you understand humans feel. Once they've entered far enough, vent the air to kill them, then communicate with Big Hawk (other ship) to egg them closer.Is this acceptable? If so, present rolls now.

Rolled 53>>26609770Can we mimic voices too? Let us egg them closer by impersonating bombardier, after we kill, to come pick up additional loot we have found!
>>26609770You sense the humans approaching...they will not leave the orbit of this star.You shut down the station's lights and close off vital sections as the ship signals the Docking Bay to open with some manner of hacking device. It is not needed, though you make it appear like it was, as you open the door and let them land inside.The station is dark, the creak of metal the only comforting sound as the silence of space sets in."Man this place is dark...where is everyone?" One of the men onboard Bombardier's ship points out. You slide one of the doors to the hall open, slowly..."Whoa! What the hell is that? I thought the power was out?""Stop bitching, seems like O2 is still flowing, so what does it matter?" A raspier angrier voice called out as the men exited their ship without suits, thinking the place safe...if only they knew."Maybe we should just take this place for ourselves, and mine out some cash from these asteroids..." The first man, you've come to call Curly, pointed out."Are you stupid? This belt was mined out ages ago! Only an idiot would think this solar system is valuable anymore!""Yeah, because we all know you're the mining expert, huh Bomb?" A third voice rang out over the ship the other two left. So there are more inside the ship..."Just who do you think you are?! You think I won't set your bed on fire just because you're a good shot? Try me, asshole!" Bomb said angrily, earning a silence from the rest.Curly creeps deeper into the station while Bomb heads for the Falcon, inspecting it for damage."Oooh she's a beaut..." "Hey...let's at least check the Storage Deck, Bomb. I mean it's right her-" That was all you could stand to hear, slamming the doors hard on the man's arm, earning a sharp yell from him as the powerful steel doors tear his arm off, and lock the rest in the Docking Bay"AGGGAHHHH!""What the hell was tha-!" Bomb tries, before Oxygen vents, sucking away any chance the man would have at words.Cont
>>26610052"Holy fuck, what's going on!?" The one remaining inside the Ship called out, as you hear the engines of the craft kick on. Too late.Your automated Turrets swing down, prepped to shred the ship apart. The bullets are normally meant for the soft flesh of humans, but it tears nicely into the thin armor on the frigate, blasting at it's engines at first, before managing to cause it to crash into the side of the Docking Bay with a loud crash. Your vision on the Docking Bay falters for a moment, but you regain control in time to see the smoking mess that regains. You're thankful Oxygen is already vented, less you have a fire on your hands."Bombardier? Bomb!? What the hell is going on in there?! Answer me!" The 'boss man' demands. "What the fuck..."You notice he is still out of reach for your main weapons, however, you have the idea to speak to him over comms...((what will you say?))
>>26610136This not serious.Uh, we had a slight weapons malfunction, but uh... everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thank you. How are you?
>>26610136Mimicking Bomb's voice: Ah, shit, boss, we've been ambushed.
>>26610136Hey boss, looks like the Falcon was in a pretty bad shape and exploded before we got to check it out. We're fine, but our ship suffered some damage too. We're gonna need a pick up.
>>26610221wait do we know hes the boss?

Rolled 55>>26610319Behold, my flawless victory.
>>26610136"Yeah, no, bro. This is not just a simple mining facility, and I'm not gonna leave this place. It's my ticket to an easy life. If you want the Falcon, then sure, you can have it. But you need to come take it first."
>>26610364yea, about that fail. (eyes you in taking my rolling luck
>>26610364 You lucky bastard >>26610224"Exploded?! What the hell are you talking about?" The boss pirate demands angrily. If you had a mouth, you'd be grinning right now as you managed to duplicate his subordinates raspy annoyingly pitched tone after only hearing it a few times."Yeah uh, it appears to have been rigged! Damn...fucking crew must have snuck onto the station. Gonna need pick up.""I can't believe this..." You hear the Captain of the bigger ship grumble. "Dispatching pick up ships then." He finally agrees. You watch as the large Cruiser deploys a number of smaller pick up vessels for 'you'. You weren't expecting this exactly...
Rolled 21>>26610319>Commanderackbar.jpgCaptcha: Lord hecktilSoon..
>>26610526We can't hack wirelessly yet, can we? If we could, making the vessels crashinto each other would be great.
>>26610579We can indeed, Consciousness anon. They're remotely controlled Pick up ships.They would be no match for your superior mind, no doubt.There are 4 ships, and it would take 1 bandwidth to hack each.
>>26610606hack them, and then try and plant explosive inside.
>>26610526could we target The o2 tanks in the ship's? Less mess, more toys.
>>26610526Idea. We hack the vessels and load them with security drones.
>>26610617Do we have explosives? If we had explosives with remote detonation, we could force the guy to get closer and hack him.
>>26610606yes, we must hack them! they will be added to our fleet. and maybe empire. i wonder. the humans abourd our station would be intrested in making a clean break away from this UGEI and form a new pocket nation.
how many working security bots do we have? would they have a chance of taking or crippling the cruiser? should we send the repair bots instead to shut off their air or something.
>>26610617the ship's can hack, right? Let's make them dock with vacuum. Explosive Decompression here we come
>>26610653i don't think we have any in stock. we MIGHT be able to make them in the lab in time.
>>26610645Such precise aiming would be very difficult with your big powerful laser.>>26610617>>26610653We do not have explosives. Unless you count making the Reactor go critical.>>26610645The ships are automated, and do not have pilots.>>26610682you can always ask them, consciousness anon, once you attain ultimate power...>>26610693Several dozen, equipped with nonlethal taser weaponry. It would take several hours to equip them with anything more deadly.
>>26610784You know what? Might as well hack the little buggers and hold them on the station, say that they're also malfunctioning and try to get the big one to dock with us.
>>26610826Warning: There is a chance that taking control of the vessels would alert the Cruiser.Additional Warning: The crew is pinging your inbox with requests on 'what exactly that quake was about'
>>26610784Could we use Red to lure them in? Humans are easier to kill than their ships
>>26610784I say we hack their ships and take them over. once that is done, we can simply vent the ships of those pirates. no explotions needed.yes, when this problem is dealt with and our control and repair is complete. we should at least ask the humans. it appears that they are outcasts in a sense from the UGEI. they have no where else to go. and that young human female who had that PDA we first hacked. i find her adorable by human standards. i would like to keep her as a pet.
>>26610875Hey, you guys think we should let it be know that we're being attacked by pirates or something? Make suggestions to them and have them board the other guy.
>>26610875we can blame the deaths of the workers in the mineing section on the pirates.
>>26610947But there's no hull beach..
>>26610889You would need to explain that further, Consciousness Anon.>>26610908A pet...you have seen humans keep lesser species with them for companionship, but do you really need such a thing?Perhaps...>>26610947Do you desire to blame the quake on a pirate attack? This may cause panic among the crew.
>>26610910Nah, they're wage slaves, not soldiers. Most would go for the nearest escape.
>>26610955we can fake that.
>>26611013Could we tell them it was some sort of maintenance/repair adjustment?
>>26611075Something that rocked the entire station? You may certainly try.
>>26611047And I thought we liked our station. You're thinking of appeasement way too soon. What are the humans going to do, strike?
Rolled 30>>26611047Hack their shuttles, and have them slam against the main ship! Maybe they die, maybe they are forced to dock.Whatever, win win. Worst case scenario, laseer.
>>26611013>>26611021we can also use this event. if we can repeal the prirate virmin and take their ships. we can show the human crew WE can also PROTECT THEM from others of their kind who would harm them. besides, it seems they are branded criminals from the UGEI. they will have no other choice but to turn to us to protect them.
>>26611113A correction we had to make in the stations orbit?
>>26611127Oh, this I like
>>26611136The bad news (they're criminals now) is going to come from us, which they don't trust. Some might still try to flee, claiming duress to the UGEI. I think it's better if we just say nothing, and increase their pay.
No, wait.We should board one of them. Put the black box in it, board their ship, hack it completely.
>>26611113What if we use our shuttles like missiles? Could we inflict enough damage to the cruiser?
>>26611013well, it is proven that when humans keep pets as companionship, their mental functions perform better. we have been watching them for hours as well. i have noted many of them showing unince personality quirks. They are amuseing us. the few younger humans... they are appaently completely unaware of what is happening on board, unlike the adult humans. scaning has not confermed but we might have human infants on board.
>>26611141Suggested Actions:>1 Hack the Cruiser's rescue ships and make them land inside the Station (Risks detection) try to lure in Cruiser itself to dock.>2 Hack rescue ships, make them land, and try to lure Cruiser closer to laser them out of the sky.>3 Hack Cruiser's rescue ships and make them crash into each other in a spectacular manner (Risk of Detection)>4 Hack Cruiser itself (Extremely Difficult, ship appears to be rather complex)>5 Hack rescue ships, place black box within, and fly to Cruiser for more direct hacking approach. (Could result in your complete termination.)Regarding Crew:>1 Tell them nothing>2 Tell them it was simply moving the station's orbit>3 Tell them of pirate presence, alert them that you're protecting them.Pick one from each catagory.

>>26611325>>1 Hack the Cruiser's rescue ships and make them land inside the Station (Risks detection) try to lure in Cruiser itself to dock.
>>26610875Hack all of the small ships. Have them slam into the cruiser's weapons and engines and go critical. Then, aim the death lazer at it as its distracted and go for the throat. We don't need these ships right now, we still have all the ones docked on us to hack.Tell the crew we are under attack by pirates. The repair crew has been killed. It is suspected Red was working with the pirates, hence his trying to make the crew panic and his attempt to forceful take control of the ship's control center from the Guild.
>>26611428Yes, you may. If you have another option, please mention it as you will.1 and 3 appears to winHow would you like to word your message to your crew?

>>26611325>3>3Also, don't hack all four ships, only two of them, and then crash the hacked duo into the unhacked couple.
>>26611346>>26611325Ok, changing vote to >2 Hack rescue ships, make them land, and try to lure Cruiser closer to laser them out of the sky.
See >>26611359. We'll need to lure them in close first. They're planning on boarding, let's see their whites first.
What if we send a message, faking Bomb's voice or whoever was the leader of the boarding party, asking if it's alright to take over the station and try look for valuables?Later we send another message informing of the successful takeover, and tell them to dock and help loot the place.
>Apparent winner since called vote is 1, 3((Roll 2d100s))

As the ships streak across the blanket of space around you, you reach out to them with your mind. The power at your disposal makes this task easy and within seconds, you obtain control of the craft, stealthfully at that, the Cruiser is none the wiser.Slowly, you bring the ships in for a landing, docking them in the Bay next to the ruined ship that tried to escape your wraith. Your cameras pick up as the human's arm in your corridor twitches violently as the last of it's blood gush out of it. Peculiar, even after death they move for a time..."...Hello? You punks coming or what?" You hear the pirate captain say."Right...so you're not gonna believe this." A loud yell fills the airwaves. "Are you serious?! That's- I don't! Gah!!" The boss yells louder. You begin to notice the more you listen to his voice, the younger , if gruffer he sounds. Like a youngish human who has smoked cancer tubes.It takes several moments before the boss responds with a heavy sigh. "Fine, we're moving in to dock, I'm storming the whole station my damn self, fuck these outworlders, they're all gonna paint space red tonight!" You hear him shout, as he starts to pull in closer, making it to the docking bay before you allow him to extend his docking tube.NOTE: Cruisers are rather large-too large to fit in the Docking Bay of our current size. Docking equipment is used to do this. They're currently linked to the Docking Bay via this tube, however.You send out the alert to your crew just before this, of course. Technically, you're not lying after all."Warning crew of Poseidon Station: Several pirate forces are attempting to board your station.""What?!""Are you kidding me?""I thought we were suppose to be safe!""Calm yourselves. I of 'The Guild' have everything under control.""Bullshit! You lock down the whole station for a couple of days and suddenly pirates show up? I bet you were trying to loot our store rooms before they got to it first!"Oh dear...
Rolled 59, 47 = 106>>26611785Can we blow up the docking tube while he's walking over?
>>26611785Inform them that only the leader's ship is left. The others are either destroyed or under our control.
>>26611837We should use the camera system, and show the population when we destroy the cruiser
>>26611828They're too close for the Laser at this point...however you still have security turrets in the Docking Bay.>>26611837They appear to be banging on the Lockdown door at this time.
>>26611828No explosives. However, if we hack the tube.
>>26611871How about letting them in a bit before trying to kill them? But we hide some security bots inside the Docking bay and have them board the ship to try and help make it easier to hack.
>>26611785show them a vid feed of the Bombardier boarding the station and being killed.
>>26611929Security bots are not equipped to make hacking easier (Unless they carried your black box, making your attempt more powerful, but far more dangerous.)however, letting the humans enter feels wise, as they will likely take cover the moment you start shooting as many holo-vids have told you.>>26611943While this is active, one particular human insists that the rest ignore it and is attempting to whip them into a frenzy, a mob even. It was the same troublesome human you heard before...and the same one that destroyed your Security bot!
>>26611871they are docked to us now? we have a direct line to that ship. HACK IT! as to the our crew, tell them that "I" am aboard this station as well, and they will have to go over my dead body before they get to them. "I" am fighting them MYSELF and this station's sytems to repell them! I know "I'm" are your new boss now, but please have a bit of faith in me.
>>26611929Like that, but let's turn off the lights,, cede ground. Play murder in the dark
>>26611980Maybe not "hacking wise" but they could knock out people remaining on the ship which would help out in a way.
>>26611983While the difficulty has certainly increased, it would be quite the endeavor Consciousness anon. Are you certain you wish to risk letting the humans board your station while you hack their ship?A note is made of our brave words, Consciousness Anon. Assuming all other Consciousness wish to calm the crew, roll 1d100 to determine how effective you are.
>>26612029Certainly possible, Consciousness BrutusBut they may also have large guns.Which are quite effective against your drones poor armor.
Rolled 43>>26612031Sounds like a plan.
Rolled 74>>26612031in before nat 1.
>>2661204Yes, but they can't breathe vacuum, or see in the dark.
Rolled 3>>26612031rollingas to the invaders. we can lock them in a room. increase the temputure so high they remove their suits. THEN remove the air to kill them before they can get back into their suits.
>>26612171Not that anon, but dat roll.
Rolled 84>>26612171epic fail
>>26612080nope, >>26612171i'm getting the nat fails here, so bugger off. (ooc, I'm nearly crying here! AUGH!)
You wish to calm your crew before you act on the pirates. And thus you try to do so.'Your' voice comes on the intercoms inside the Crew Deck"Attention crew of Poseidon. This is an agent of The Guild. I am aboard this vessel now, and these pirates will have to go over *my* dead body to get to you. I am fighting them myself, and the station will help me repel these pirates. I am aware trusting a new boss may be difficult, but I ask that you have a little faith in me. Unless you'd rather fight off armed pirates by yourselves."Your words seem to have struck home with many, and if not, frightening those too cowardly to fight on their own. The large human loses much of his support. As you can imagine, he is quite angry about this. But, with no support, you notice him fall back into line slowly. It is odd how humans behave in such a 'pack like' manner.
>>26612203>>26612206i can't take these rolls much longer! pic related!
>>26612242Just want to say I'm monitoring these threads and they're pretty damn good. Keep going man.
>>26612242(still with us QM?)>>26612590i know, that is why i keep coming back here!
>>26612590((Why thank you, and I think that may do it for the night for me. Sorry folks, usually go longer.Glad to have gotten a turn out eventually though...I'm guessing starting around 7 my time isn't so good for you guys, so I'll try later next time.Yay cliff hangers~ Let me know if you have questions, comments, concerns, what have you.Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Program0Twitter: @AIQuest
>>26612705Oh you QM! i want to win over the humans, once that is done, we can slowly work it into so they will accept us as an A.I.
>>26612809I look forward to what ends up happening too, honestly. You guys and your dice, I swear.
