Philosophy of a Machine #1
Inspection. First episode, deals with the main characters. Long, lots of dialogue. The action comes next episode.
About this creation
Good morning, evening, afternoon, dead cakes, viewer. I don't know. To much copypasta... And formatting... Damn formatting! It's with great pride I bring you Philosophy of a Machine 1: Inspection. Stuff happens, but not really, you get to see my nice backyard, and some crappy 10 minute build sets for photography. Enjoy!

Oh, to avoid questions, skeletons are the race Thyrendi. Since I have a ton of skeleton heads with read eyes, they get to be aliens. Yay!


On the desolate planet of Owyhee, in the star system Aeaea, a lone, ordinary COP Light Tank drives along a remote country road, inside, one of the most important members of the Coalition: Fleet Lord Aemowes. His mission? To inspect his new project.


Thyrendi driver: My lord, might I ask why you are out here? Base 23141 doesn’t have anything important…
Aemowes: I can’t tell you that, subject. Those kinds of questions could get you into serious trouble.
Human gunner: And that’s why I ain’t askin’ no questions.


Aemowes: This is quite a long drive, especially in this dark tank.
Human gunner: It’s funner when yer off duty, sir. This here tank can pull off some crazy acro-batics.
Aemowes: I hope you’re aware that is not sanctioned by COP Military Regulations.
Thyrendi driver: Regulations tend to get ignored out here, my lord.


Human driver: There’s that damn tower. Ain’t a soul on this rock that knows how long it’s been here.
Aemowes: Just when I thought this dusty place was boring… A tower. And why is it so colorful here? I hear Owyhee is a barren place.
Human driver: It’s spring. You should see this place in summer; it’s as dry as Thyrenda is wet.
Aemowes: How horrid…


Thyrendi driver: Here we are, my lord. Don’t forget about-
Aemowes: The UV rays. Yes, I know. But thank you for your concern, subject.
Human driver (muttering): Crazy Thyrendi, with their damn hierarchy…
(Aemowes puts on his heavy cloth wrappings, to protect his skin from the sun’s excessive UV radiation)


Aemowes: About time I got here.
Thyrendi soldier: Welcome, my lord, to Base 23141. I hope you find you stay most enjoyable.
Aemowes: Ya, ya, ya… Just open the door; I’m boiling to death out here.


Human officer: Howdy, there, sir! How can I help?
Aemowes: Where’s your uniform, soldier?
Human officer: Bein’ cleaned. Where’s yer destination?


Aemowes: Take this. (He hands the officer his cloth wrappings) Take me to the core room.
Human officer: These sure are heavy…
Aemowes: They need to be. Wait- Why are the walls yellow?


Human officer: This ain’t one of yer pretty grey space ships, sir. Not much been happening down in these parts, one gets bored. It don’t take much time for soldiers to start painting walls.
Aemowes: There is a serious lack in discipline here.
Human officer: There sure is. Just the way we like it…


Aemowes: What? Why is there a green spot here?
Human officer: …We ran outa yellow…
Aemowes: So this wall was bright lime green before?
Human officer: Yes…
Aemowes: Ugh.
Human officer: Hey, us humans like color. You Thyrendi are boring with your grays… Sir…


-Meanwhile-
Kresor soldier: Why are these here plates so heavy?
Thyrendi soldier: All I know is that damn thin’ scares me, even when it’s turned off…
Dr. Thompson: That is the point. This machine was built to be intimidating, not to mention resistant to most small arms. That’s why it’s armor is so heavy, boy.
Kresor soldier: Makes sense…


Aemowes: Ah, greetings Dr. Thompson!
Dr. Thompson: Greetings to you to, Fleet Lord!
Human officer (from hall): Wait, that guy is a Fleet Lord?!
Dr. Thompson: Finally here to inspect your project?


Aemowes: Yes. And I thought I’d visit the capitol later; listen to what they have to say, you know, just to fulfill my duties to the people.
Dr. Thompson: Ah, yes. Well, would you like to see him wake up?
Aemowes: Him?
Dr. Thompson: Yes, him. The machine. He has already developed a masculine personality, even in this early stage of his operation.
Aemowes: Intriguing…


Dr. Thompson: Wake up, Varion!
Aemowes: Varion?
Dr. Thompson: From VARiable functION. Only I can call him that, he won’t let any one else… Apparently I’m the only one he can trust with a more personal name…
Aemowes: Very intriguing… You have done well, Doctor.


Varion/VF-S 1: RUNNING SYSTEMS CHECK: SYSTEMS NORMAL.
Dr. Thompson (quietly): Address him.
Aemowes: VF-S 1. I have a question for you.
Varion/VF-S 1: CONTINUE.


Aemowes: As you might know, I am Fleet Lord of the 3rd Coalition-
Varion/VF-S 1 (Varion bows): I DID NOT REALIZE-
Aemowes: Most people don’t. Anyways, I have a job for you.
Kresor soldier: This outa’ be interestin’.


Aemowes: It involves an EOS Fueling Station-
Varion/VF-S 1: IT WILL BE DONE.
Aemowes: I wasn’t expecting that quick of an answer…
Varion/VF-S 1: I APOLOGIZE.
Aemowes: Whatever. Right now, we must get back to the Harbinger. Come with me…


-On the bridge of the Harbinger-
Lieutenant Hood: Sir, incoming transmission for the surface.
Vice Admiral Layman: Put it through.
Fleet Lord Aemowes: Layman, get me a ride out of this barren rock. Fast.
Vice Admiral Layman: Yes, sir. We’ve got a drop ship en route.
Fleet Lord Aemowes: No. No drop ship. Send my shuttle, I’ve had enough of combat vehicles today…


Fleet Lord Aemowes: Besides, it’s faster. We have work to do.
Varion/VF-S 1: A LOT OF WORK.

Fun-but-not-really facts:

The star Aeaea emits large amounts of UV radiation, unlike the star Thyr. Thyrendi have low tolerance to UV rays, so they have to either wear armor or special cloth to avoid getting cancer or something.

Fleet Lord Aemowes is not only a Fleet Lord, but 3rd in line for the Throne of Zacynthus. Basically, he's three heartbeats away from being Kind of Thyrenda and it's asociated colonies. Because he is of royal blood, all Thyrendi, no matter of rank or where they are, adress him as "my lord", and he addresses them as "subject".

The last picture is my first photoshopped picture since 2007 or so, meaning I'm a bity rusty.

All those born on Owyhee, the planet featured here, talk that way (You ain't seen nothin', son!). I modeled it on the way people form East Oregon talk. Owyhee is a river-creek (too big to be one but too small to be the other) in East Oregon, I've been camping there. Beautiful place...

Nexy episode, VF-S 1 is gonna own some EOS noobs, and blow up a fuel station. I can honestly say I don't know it's gonna be out, but hopefully next sunday.

Quoting talmage merritt It is very nice..i hope you do not mind but i took your robot design (forgot name) and made my own (it is almost one color but some peices are black and one is orange?) also i made it a different design...in the body...everything else is the same. also one other thing is that the arbiter(if im not mistaken) is the leader of the evil dudes in halo, and the name of a ship in kotor, and a lawyer on kotor (kotor means knights of the old republic) kotor is starwars...anyways love the creations!
Where does the Arbiter come into this? Also, he isn't the leader of the Covenant, the High Prophets lead the Covenant. The ship is called Harbinger, close to Arbiter, but not related.

Quoting John Szempias Ok awesome o, a few things i have to ask you before i make the aemowes series. first off where did you get aemowes's gray cap? second i read the stuff on the link you gave to me, but did aemowes ever experience combat before he became a fleet lord? and last i was thinking of adding a special thyrendi solider(or group of soliders) called the thyrendi black ops. would that be okay? plz respond
I got it from an old Star Wars set, one with Darthe Vader, Luke, a storm trooper, and imperial officer. Came out a few years back. He did experience combat (not ground, space) before becoming a Fleet Lord, but that was in his days serving his planet's goverment. Then he went to the Coalition, and worked his way through the ranks to being a Fleet Lord. And a Thyrendi black ops. sounds cool, go ahead with it.

Quoting Galactic Officer: AC-2573 Drake hey man, you inspired me to make a robot too, but its hon nearly as cool as yours. It has AI same as varion, but is smaller, and more agile. It is a Stealth attack robot.
If you mean AI as in the Crystal Network and it's four computers, well, that's more of a system than an AI. Feel free to use it, but remember, Varion is an individual in his own right, can't be copied, because the Crystal Network doesn't work that way. Just makin' that clear.
