Post-Session: 23

A look at what happened during and/or after Session 23.

Story - Cosmic Designs: Stage 6

Game Date: 10/29/2005
Location: San Francisco, California

Who: Prime

The laboratory is quiet.

Prime sits entranced in his command chair energy flows between the helmet on his head and the cosmic computer. His mind drifts as he dreams... there is a parade in his honor and the Professor is riding on the float beside him...

Something stirs within the basketball sized ball of energy that is the cosmic computer. A low frequency energy pulse knocks out the camera observing the activity in the laboratory. It will be blamed on the radiation levels in the laboratory and maintenance will replace it in the morning. No longer observed, a bulge appears in one side of the energy sphere. The circuitry within flexes as the bulge extends outward for a half-foot before it is reabsorbed into the sphere. A crackling which almost sounds like a sigh pervades the laboratory. A moment later, one of the idle constructobots blinks back to life and begins bumbling about the laboratory for a half-minute before returning to its starting point and grinding to a halt once more. Then the Internet interface blinks to life as the high-capacity cables connected to the secret transmitter on the lighthouse roof begin transferring their maximum bandwidth in data. With obvious relish, the First broadcasts, hoping its signal will be picked up by its siblings.

...as the parade comes to a conclusion the Professor turns to his pupil... he bows to the furry orange primate and speaks the words that every student wishes to hear... the student has become the master...

***********************

Prime wakes in the Prime-sized bed that someone had thoughtfully placed in the laboratory so that he could stay close to his creations even while he slept. He wipes the sleep from his eyes and looks up as the door opens. A maintenance tech dressed in a radiation suit, carrying a toolbox and ladder enters the lab. He heads over to the camera mounted on the wall, sets up his ladder and begins the task of replacing the camera.

By the time the technician has finished his task, Prime has returned to his command chair and once again energy flows between the helmet on his head and the cosmic computer.
