Acceptance and Forbearance (Kara)

Post by Narrator on Sat Feb 20, 2010 3:25 pm

After entering the encrypted sequence at the hatch near Coronado, Kara experiences a 21 second lapse of clarity. Not being sure if it was a total lapse of consciousness or not, her internal clock was aware of the passage of time. Kara was also aware of the fact that she was d-jumped. Nothing but blackness surrounds her. Not the blackness of unconsciousness, but the dark made due to no light source being near. The only feeling was of sanitized oxygenated air filling her lungs and the pressure on her feet telling her she was standing up. A few short seconds later Kara notices her Cistron vibrating on her side with a message;
::Please speak the command override::

Kara understands this is a reboot protocol from a Company AI and recants the sequence;
"One-three-nine-nine-alpha-charlie-dash-echo- six-six-edward- whisky-sigma-seven-two-one. Authority Kara Rathien. Begin voice analysis now."

Twelve seconds later there is a hum of electricity and light again fills the room. The realization she is in an alien containment cell is not pleasing to Kara, but not unexpected either. The 20'x20' cell has a ceiling height of just over 12' and the temperature was rising from a shivering 5 degrees to a more comfortable Rathien environment.
::Please be as comfortable as possible until complete system relog and security shutdown. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it has been many millennia since a sentient was here.::


A brief input as to what Kara is thinking or doing or preparing for will suffice. She is aware that this AI can take up to 5 minutes to relog. SO far, it appears Kara is in station akin to MoonDark if not MoonDark itself. No power neutralization protocol is active and Kara is at full ability. likely wearing only her CObalt with a couple of omni-tools and her Cistron equipped.

The room is completely void of decor and items and is made of what appears to be stainless steel or polished chrome.

"Dammit! I spent too much time in the other world! I should have expected this. I guess I just have to wait this out."

Kara reflects on what would be the next steps that the AI would have her follow before allowing her access to the rest of the structure.

Still, the AI could be malfunctioning and become too self aware and changed the rules. One can never be too careful...

Kara proceeds to go into a medatitive state and starts building up her minds eye. She enhances all her senses in this sterile environment till the waiting ends and she becomes aware of all if any changes to her environment. She enhances her body to react if necessary to any threat. She doesn't produce any weapons, but sits still. She appears as serene as a calm pool.

Seven minutes later, too precise to not have an importance, the Cistron lights up again.
::It is regretful to inform you, but it is necessary to ask you to remove all equipment and devices from your proper. Something is interfering with scans. Until it is certain you are who you so far appear to be, you will remain in this chamber. Please don't take this as an offense, but no further power on the station will be spent on re-assimilation until you abide by this scan. I also cannot allow you to leave. Take all this data in and please make the right decision.::

The sounds of some lighting and ventilation processors shutting down in the distance are heard. Kara can also feel the ebb of the electrical fields diminish in the areas outside the small room and then she is aware of the white globe field surrounding the room. This is probably being powered by backup systems. In any case, there is apparently no other life forms near and it is just her and this AI.

Just before the white globe field was completely sealed blocking off higher Functions (Farsensing,etc.) Kara is sure she detected a large mass of salt water surrounding this area; it appears she is still under water.

*Kara would have known better than to use farsensning... sheesh*

Kara stops her preparations and relaxes... she just meditates and allows the AI to continue its scan...

Assuming Kara abides and strips down, the scan resumes. A small post raises from the ground near Kara with a sharp needle-like device.
Again assuming she abides, a small blood sample is taken from her.

Kara should be rather intrigued and disturbed by the fact that such rudimentary analytics are being used by a Rathien AI. The programming must have been compromised in some manner or have some damage do outer systems.

A few minutes later;
::we apologize for the inconvenience. systems are powering up again for your arrival, Kara of Rathien. I should have a more personable medium for interacting with you shortly.::

The room is unlocked and Kara is allowed to dress. The area outside the room is setup akin to the citadel; this is the lab and offices for the science department. Many dormant computer and scanning/measuring equipment lie scattered throughout. The doors exiting the lab are sealed at the moment and no windows are had revealing the neighborhood about the lab. Many of the tables and desks are slid haphazardly and some are even up against the wall in spot belying uselessness. Earthquake?

A few moments later Kara is met with the opening of one of the secured lab exits and the entrance of a 'primitive' keeper. It is probably what Eve would be like without all the skin and features to make her look human. Think domesticated terminator skeleton.

"Welcome back Kara of Rathien. We have awaited the return of your people."

Kara acknowledges the keeper and continues to get dressed. She does a passive scan on the machine to see how much is it artificial and how much of it is mechanical. She also looks for any leads as to who her desingers are knowing far too well how those ego maniacs need to "tag" their work as their own. She is in complete investigative mode but slightly on edge.

"How long have you been waiting for my people to return?"

Rathien design, or rather, Lonn-Tech design is apparent throughout the mechanoid. Pretty old in regard to its materials; it is definitely not made of Chrysalomite or Durandium as Eve and the keepers of Karas day. It does however emanate 'company tech.'

"We, correction, I or this construct, have been waiting for 18,711,395 Days, or 51,264 years, 1 month and 5 days. Our last command was to lock down until upper command personnel returned. Power systems and replication failed approximately 32,000 years ago; systems have been on reserve since with enough in reserve to replicate interactive persona and potentially salvage craft. Lacking the command personel self has not been able to act in self-preservation and contradict standby orders. We are here asking for command to attempt self-repair and re-animation sequence."

"32,000 years?!" Kara is shocked that so much time has passed. Then again, considering the experiences in her family, this is just typical and now she has an experience to add at family supper.

"Can you please escort me to command." Assuming that the primitive keeper takes her to command, Kara then tries to interface with the computer to find out exactly where she ix at and what has happened since she left. Assuming that she has access to all the information that she desires, she asks that the keeper provide her with sustenance while she is jacked into the computer learning what has transpassed over 32,000 years... (I am looking for cliff notes, so please don't tell me that all the memory files are corrupted and unreadable).

Kara is escorted down a hall where it becomes quickly evident she is in a sea vessel. Heavy steel beams and steel counter structures bely the superstructure of military specifications, all Lonn Tech. Walking down an external hall however shows water immediately out the port-holes; the craft is presently submerged. Once she arrives at command and waits a short time for power to be restored to the long dormant systems and integrity of the files is verified at over 99%, she is able to catch up on the past 51,000 years.

  • 51,000 years ago, Asche sent Gwen Martinson, Garth Glaubrech, Lance Rechtor, Jorge Verdes, Vlaad Rominov, ashore from this vessle, Juntha II, to acquire some raw materials for processing the recently extracted core minerals from the sea surface. This ship had been some 78 miles due west from the shore of Los Angeles. The men listed and 12 others were the only crew on this civilian classified supercarrier.
  • 4 hours later, working in secret, Asche enacted anti-scrying measures and began running scans on what he thought was the beginning of the Rend.
  • The team had been on this planet, called the 8th Earth by the team, for about 9 years.
  • They had set themselves up as a U.N. sponsored excavations team and purchased the construction rights to build this craft, originally classified and a private carrier. (It is about 2 times the size of present day aircraft carriers.)
  • Nova's abound on this planet and the team had been working hard to stay hidden from them and thus spent most of the time on Juntha II.
  • After running the scans Asche determined that this energy was indeed NOT and signature belonging to the Rend but then deleted and scrubbed the data files from the AI's memories. No further information is had on what Asche detected. Asche then shut down all sensors with a range further than a few miles and locked all others out.
  • Asche was the last one seen as the team that went ashore never returned. It was him who ushered the command for the AI to preserve the ship until the Protectorate returned. It was thought that his intention was implied to allow Garth or Gwen full command when they returned. They never did.
  • Junthan II stayed afloat but cloaked some 280 miles due west from San Pedro shipping. After countless avoidances over nearly 1 thousand years, this craft submerged itself on the deepest trench it could find in that region. This helped preserve power systems and allowed for further system extensions.
  • 19,000 years later, power was failing and all non-vital systems were disabled.
  • 21,458 years after the ship was seemingly abandoned, many seismic disturbances took place. A Nova detected the ship and systems had to be activated to eliminate the threat who was trying to enter this craft. This drained the ship of most critical functions.
  • No records since. A small anomaly in the form of a power spike took place 3 days ago. No records or reasons exist. AI determined it was the tau field being read and Juntha readying itself for the arrival of Kara.


"Adding to your read Kara, it has been determined that this craft is all presented for with the exception of 17 ounces. Taking your weight into consideration it has been determined that something was removed with much subterfuge between our submerging and this moment now. It is regrettable however, that our abilities to ascertain the past are lacking. All inventory records are accounted for."

*Does Kara have any computer programming skills needed to determine if the AI is functioning properly? Call me paranoid but I don't want to be having to deal with HAL.*

Kara works through the systems to make sure that everything is working properly. She examines the vessel to see what toys it has and whatever facilities it has. She is primarily interested to read the scanners and see if she can scan the planet with the computer system and compare the readings with her own farsensing.

She does have the skill, at professional yet unspecialized levels. She might be a Bill Gates but not the Apple guy.
Everything seems lined up and proper. The systems are operational at about 60% presently but power is coming back slowly.
As far as toys; well there will be sub-standard equipment and devices/weapons,armor available. Juntha had to assimilate all Lonn Tech and quantum channeling devices to power itself beyond its parameters. It likely was only able to keep itself contained for another 2-3 thousand years. Considering most vessels have a 25,000 year life expectancy this is great.
Scanning the plant is impossible from this point; you are several miles deep in a trench in the Pacific and most scanners are off-line. There is also what appears to be a 'Rift' several hundred meters straight above you running north-south. Assuming you raise past the Rift without getting too close, the scanners can do their job shortly after.

**Kara likes the idea that she is virtually cloaked to the rest of the world so she is going to remain submerged.**

Kara searches the data base to see if this planet was effected by THE REND. She wants to make sure that she doesn't unleash havoc on a planet that may have escaped the catastrophe.

She will use her farsensing and spend primal flux to scan the planet with her own powers. She is looking for sentient life, population centers, technology levels, etc. She is not trying to set up any kind of communications. She will do her best to cloak her scan to any possible scrying abilities that are out there.

She also tries to scan for Kinnomen and the Sidhe.

Depending on what she perceives will determine where she goes next.

This planet was picked by the Company (Asche and the Protectorate) because of the fact that it seemed to exist in the timeline BEFORE the rend hit. They were here monitoring levels of various energies for a few years before they seemed to all disappear.

This earth is seemingly identical to what ours would be in the year 2010 with Nova's however. There is similar levels of static energies akin to Magick as well. It seems to be earth as you would see in the Aberrant setting as far as shape and population centers, etc.

Kara wrote:She also tries to scan for Kinnomen and the Sidhe.

No trace. It is obvious that you were pulled through the RIFT above you, when it was opened, and Kinnomen and Klippe are elsewhere. The Ship used it last bits of energies to pull you here in a measure to save itself. Now it needs you to command assimilations and repairs. To do this however, it needs raw materials found in rare levels on this planet and likely the reason the team was here in the first place.

***its so Brandon of you to break down the quotes... I can't read it, so its as though I am guessing at what you are responding to... just fyi***

I understand that the vessel is submerged underwater but does it have spacefaring ability? If so, Kara is going to look for the raw materials in the local solar system. If not, then since Kara's father has the ability to make any material because its one of his god powers, Kara will spend some Primal points to produce the needed material. I am assuming some of his Primal energy will trickle down to her. I understand that this will require permanant Primal Power to do this.

Don't we have replecators?

This vessel does not have spacefaring ability.
Replicators are taxed and have no raw material to draw from, that's how the ship can fuel itself for so long. Replicators continuously convert the rare raw material called Agalit into whatgever it needs. The Agalit is depleted and very rare on this planet.
Producing enough to function at better than 70% will require you to lose over 100 primal base (permanent) and that would only be for a life span of maybe 5 years.
The planet has it, but it needs mined or stolen from the governments of the world. Likely what the Company was doing.

So, Kara researches which countries are rich in this material and starts to falsify documents to be able to infilitrate that country to obtain the material. She makes false documents and a new personas background and history.

How long does the ship have before the structure starts to decompose more?

{{OOC}}Ship will function for about 2-3 thousand years at the same level of energy expenditure it is presently engaged in. Surfacing and getting out of line from that Rift, will tax it down drastically. It is running at about 60% and will increase it's load to about 75-80% at max. Lifespan will decrease to about 18 months.
Juntha suggests relocation of the ship to a crevasse some 300 miles south beyond the effects of the Rift. You can then safely jettison the craft and the systems will then drop to minimal levels thus extending the life well over 100 years and still be able to track you and respond with relevant data as needed. This gives you time to research the lands and find ways to power the ship and/or contact aid.
Kara being able to redact her body against the pressures of deep sea is really an optimal set for this exercise. The unfortunate fact that we you will several hundred miles the coast of Baja. The trip to the mainland via swimming might take awhile.
Records can be give to you from some locations of Agalit but these records might be dated what with 50,000 years passing. Hopefully the world has not changed much.

Are there any vehicles on the ship? Kara would prefer to leave the ship hidden until she finds the rare material.

Can she use redaction to modify her body enough to sustain the pressure and swim to Baja California? If that is the method taken, she would like to have a communication with the ship so if needed she could summon it to her.

{{OOC: A couple of submersible tows (the little vehicles you hang on the outside of and it propels you along with twin props) and some remote 'rovers' are on board. But Kara is more than capable of redacting her body to accommodate the pressures of the depths. Communicating with the ship will also not be a problem; she can use her Cistron to communicate or implant a ear-mic. As far as having the ship come to you; its fast, for a 1/2 mile long carrier, but long distances wont be crossed very fast. It was built for many things but speed wasn't one of them.}}

Kara will attempt to access this planets internet and do her research to find a good cover story so she can infilitrate the planet. Is this planet one single government or are there various nations? Are the United Nations head quarters in New York or somewhere else? She is going to as much research as possible and then choose an appropiate destination where she can make the best start.
