New West Indies Regional Message Board
Mei blinked. Wait, he was being serious. “O-Oh, no, I was just messing with you! Haha, yep, just messing with you!”
"..you sure? You were looking at me, like, with a super serious expression there."
“Well that’s just…I’m really good at faces.” It was the worst excuse possible but it was the best she could think of.
A small patrol force was making its rounds through the Enim System. Comprising of one Nebula-class Star Destroyer and two Raider-class corvettes, they were tasked with keeping an eye out for pirates or any other unwelcome visitors. The system had been temporarily under Alliance occupation after the Second Confederacy War, but it had been relinquished to the local government, the extra security a sign of good faith between both parties.
For Captain Jerome Davis, it was most likely going to be another uneventful day, considering the last month was anything but eventful. Still, peace should be considered a blessing considering the state of war the Alliance had been in for the last several years.
“Captain, I’m picking up something that just dropped out of hyperspace, bearing at point four-two, about twenty kilometers off,” the comms officer reported.
“What kind of ship?” Davis asked.
“Not one I recognize, but judging by the size, it looks to be slightly smaller than a corvette.”
“Can you hail it?”
“I’ll try, sir.” The officer was silent for a moment. “The ship isn’t responding to our hails.”
Davis didn’t like this. “Commandant, have all ships go to red alert, I’ve got a-”
“Captain, three more ships have just entered the system! They’re…!”
The officer didn’t have to finish, Davis could see them. Three large ships could be seen a fair distance away, much larger than the Nebula itself. “Comms, I want to try to hail them one more time.”
“Very well sir…” After another few moments, he spoke again. “Comms are active sir.”
“Unidentified ships, this is Captain Davis of the Systems Alliance. State your business, we do not wish for any unnecessary bloodshed.”
There was no response. “Captain, the three ships moving in towards our position, accelerating quickly!”
“Captain, they appear to be sending out fighters!”
So, they wanted a fight. Unfortunately, they were definitely at a disadvantage. “Launch all fighters and have them provide defense for the corvettes! Helm, prepare for emergency jump to hyperspace!”
“The ships are opening fire!”
“Resort all power to shields!”
Unfortunately, even with the ship’s shields, the sudden volleys that came chewed through the shields in a matter of hits. “Shields are down!”
“Get a message out to the nearest fleet, we have to warn them!” It was most likely too late for them, but at least the Alliance fleet would be prepared, if this truly was an incoming invasion.
The message had been sent, but only moments before the entire patrol force was wiped out. About ten minutes later, the three ships, four including the smaller one, jumped back into hyperspace, returning to where they had come from.
Hugo sighed. He was a bit of an idiot when it came to this kind of stuff sometimes, but there was definitely something up here. There was no way that could get rubbed off as a "messing around".
"Look, if you have something you want to tell me, and it's not, like, super personal, you can tell me, okay? I know you've only known me for a few days, but... I'd like to think that I'm a decent person to talk to."
Mei looked a bit uncertain. “…You sure you won’t be weirded out or think less of me?”
Hugo smiled again. It was a soft smile, and a reassuring smile.
“Okay…when I was talking about programming…I really meant that. I go by Mei but officially my designated number is DX-2241. I am a DOLL, formerly part of the German Federation via Project Pleiades.”
Hugo's expression was, unsurprisingly, slightly dumbfounded at that. Then, something that was probably stuck at the back of his head came in for a moment.
He vaguely remembered, while absentmindedly browsing through the news;something about robots being used in that whole german war thingy that had just happened. He wouldn't know - Hugo did not like to look at the news, for obvious reasons. But if that what she was saying was true.. then everything kind of made sense. The lack of food, facilities, the enviroment, the employment... almost everything fell into place. Surely this was the secret she was talking about?
Hugo wanted to say lots of things. He wanted to ask questions, say something.
Instead, one obvious, completely mundane line came out of his brain and into his mouth.
“That…that’s it? That’s all you can say?” She assumed he was probably going to rush back into his room and somehow lock the door, at least.
