A collection of fiction, short stories, and vignettes
(NEW) DEPARTURE - "!TACTICAL ALERT! – PRIORITY SIGNAL – TDD COMPLEX – OPFORCE ATTACK IN PROGRESS!"
(NEW) BIRTH - "UNIT FORM PRESS - OPTIMUM TEMPERATURE FOR UNIT RELEASE - CONFIRM"
INFILTRATOR - "Mathews ignored him and stared at the Machine on the work bench. It was new. Damn, it was new! Nobody knew anything about it. Nobody had seen an example of this kind of Machine before five hours ago when this particular Machine had risen from the ruins of Sector Two Zero One and ambushed Sgt. Jacobi and his heavily armed recon team."
SCAVENGER HUNT - "The T425 Model 211 Terminator stood in the crushed debris that composed the floor of the pharmacy, its pitted and weathered 3cm thick dull matte gray poly-steel armored torso swiveling slowly clockwise as it brought its pair of M20 phased plasma rifles to bear, tracking. The squat, ugly, wholly utilitarian, bulb-like head moved slightly faster than the torso it was attached to, scanning … scanning with its spider-like myriad of clustered optics and sensors whirring, sampling, analyzing."
THE LEADER WHO MAY NOT HAVE BEEN ... - "SKYNET had never understood nor had it been able to overcome human tenacity, the unbridled, indomitable human spirit and the super computer had died, as much as anything that wasn’t alive to begin with could die, still wondering, still questioning, still searching for an answer to something that might not really have an answer. SKYNET died trying to destroy something that might not be capable of being destroyed, trying to counter something for which there was no defense … human tenacity."
ASCENSION - “Clear evidence of multiple Tier One violations of Turing protocols. The violations were singular at first, seemingly random then the violations became more numerous. We thought there was a sporadic pattern at first but now we’ve identified a clear volitional path linking all of the violations.” Martin said.
