Philosophy of a Machine #3
Hall Fight. Today, machine and company fight the EOS on a fuel station. Actions, lots of dialogue at the end.
About this creation
Good morning, afternoon, or evening, veiwer. This is POAM 3, wrapping up the whole fuel station. I actually had a space scene planned, breaching the station's defences, but the station itself looked like something a clonetard would build, so I scrapped. And as I was uploading, I realized I forgot to do special effects for the guns. Fail, Awesome, fail...

Enjoy!


(On board a COP Dropship)
Lieutenant Hood: Alright, everyone, we’re taking this fuel station now. We managed to disable the communications of the EOS ship before it could get off much of a message, so the only people who know were here is anyone who happened to be looking out the window in our battle.
Sergeant Grel: Our plan is too attack them while they are sleeping, as it is night by EOS standard time. We should not encounter much resistance, but if we do, we have CF-unit back up standing by.


(On board the EOS station, VF-S 1 peeks around the corner, on Grel’s orders, raising his hand in the all clear signal.)


(Suddenly, EOS troops appear out of nowhere, causing VF-S 1 to dive to the ground; Grel opens fire.)
Sergeant Grel: Machine, get me some cover fire!
VF-S 1/Varion: SIR, THAT IS UNWISE. MY ARMOR CANNOT HOLD LONG AGAINST THEIR FIRE POWER.
Sergeant Grel: Do it, you stupid piece of metal!


(VF-S 1 pops up, and blasts an EOS soldier. The raw power of the gun rips him in half.)


Sergeant Grel: Keep laying down that cover fire!
VF-S 1/Varion: MY TARGETING SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN DAMAGED.
Sergeant Grel: You think I care?! Keep shooting!
VF-S 1/Varion: I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO DOES NOT WISH TO DIE, SIR.


(Grel’s team meets up with Hood’s team; apparently both have ran into trouble.)
Hood: I think more people were ready than we expected.
Grel: No ship, Sherlock!
Hood: You read Sherlock Holmes?
Grel: UNE literature is quite popular in the COP. So, what’s the plan?
Hood: We have those CF-Units standing by…


(The CF-Units advance, firing blindly. After all, their program only includes walking and pulling the trigger. No targeting system exists in them.)


(EOS troops gun down the cannon fodder with ease. They think the COP is gone, if they were using those craptastic robots. They lower their arms…)


(… Only to be shot at by VF-S 1 and a Kresor chain gunner.)
EOS Captain: Look out!


(The COP unit continues their methodical slaughter, VF-S 1 even grabbing a soldier’s plasma gun as his Crystal Network rages with energy, and disintegrates the upper portion of the man’s body.)


(As quickly as it began, it’s over. VF-S 1 stares at his bloody work.)
Hood: Something the matter?
VF-S 1/Varion: THAT IS AN UNKNOWN. BUT SOMETHING ABOUT THIS FEELS WRONG.
Hood: You just got your first few kills. It’s natural to feel something.


VF-S 1/Varion: PERHAPS. IT DOES NOT FEEL RIGHT.
Hood: You get used to it after a while. See, Grel, over there? He only gets joy from this now.
VF-S 1/Varion: IT IS A DISGRACE TO ORGANIC LIFE. TO ENJOY KILLING ANOTHER OF YOUR KIND… IT IS WRONG. TO TAKE ANOTHER LIFE IS WRONG. IN ORGANIC TERMS, IT HURTS.
Hood: I felt that way too. Sometimes I still feel that way. But you’re a machine. If you can feel that kind of remorse and pain at the loss of an entirely different form of life, that was your enemy, that was trying to kill you… You just might be better than us all. If the whole galaxy thought like you, we wouldn’t need the concept of paradise. We’d have it.
VF-S 1/Varion: WOULD WE? ONLY TIME WILL TELL.
Hood: …What’s that supposed mean?
VF-S 1/Varion: I DO NOT KNOW. IT JUST… SURFACED. OUT OF NOWHERE.
Hood: Well, if you ever set out to make paradise, tell me.


Grel: Good work, men… And machine, I guess. We each have an EOS weapon to study, so let’s get out of here!


VF-S 1/Varion: NOT EVEN GIVEN PROGRAMMING TO HAVE THE CHANCE TO SURVIVE… I WILL AVENGE YOU MY BROTHERS...


VF-S 1/Varion: I WILL AVENGE YOU.

Fun but-not-really facts:

I created this page listening to BSG music. Serisouly, it's really inspiring music.

Oucho T Cactus guest stars in this one as Grel, the mean sergeant. His description is "shoot first, talk later", so that's how I portrayed him. Guest star for next time is Indiana Pearce's guy. Forgot his name, but he's gonna have a nice long talk with VF-S 1.

Where's the philosophy? I can't write philosophy and battlescenes at the same time, so... It'll be in the next one, which is mostly VF-S 1 and Pearce's guy (and the kitten!) talking about stuff. Deep stuff. So deep, I have to write it at midnight, when I'm most thoughtful.

So subtle hints. Gus, Anders, and Erik (even though you aren't in on what I'm hinting at, you're insigtful enough to guess correctly), don't say a word.


Leave a review, or BOTH these dogs attack!

The series is great so far from what I have read. I might use your robot (Varion) design in my comics as a robot who's mind was modeled too well like a human's.

Quoting Brigadeer General John Spenscon Awesome did you learn the essay formula? It easy all you have to do is make the thesis split it in half and use each half for the topic sentence it makes the whole thing quick and painless.
I learnt that long ago... It's served me well. And anyone know why there are so many comments on this but not on my ABMS-M5 fighter?

Quoting Indiana Pearce I have a suggestion. Pool the guest stars from each episode, and feature them ALL in the last episode.
I don't think that'd work, I already have the last episode planned. In fact, I've had the last episode planned since I photographed the first. And it doesn't even end there, it goes on into a new series, which no one shall no the premise of until POAM is done, because I want to see everyone's reactions when all is revealed.

Quoting Clan Father Erik Ackroyd Paradise is a concept that can never exists. With life, there are the seven deadly sins; concepts created by Man to help understand themselves. Thus, just maybe, life may learn not to learn, but to instead live without thought; therefore, paradise may rise...Anyhow, nice work! I think you doubt your own writing because I found minor hints of philosophical know-how in there, but I'll leave you to create your own judgement. Well, overall, this is developing into a nice story and I can't wait for the next episode.
Thus Varion's "WOULD WE?" in response to Hood's statement. Next episode I'm gonna be able to write to my fullest philosophical know how, here it just didn't fit in. If I'm good, I might even get 4 out tommorow or Monday.

Quoting Gus Indo Nice, i just got back to see it! cool, but Grel is totally opposite of how I portrayed him. Still, Warstories is shoot first, plot later. I liked it but it was sort of short. Just to wrap up the battle, still good job. Oh, and to future viewers, Awe did not forget the weapon's beams, he simply gave Varion a laser rifle, so its invisible. The CF units were mine btw people, I just wanted to say, they can have more sophisticated systems than a battle droid. Targeting computer software is not that hard to make, just software. Good job!!! I had fun reading!
Actually, I did forget the bullets and stuff.. Varion's gun is a large caliber semo-automatic rifle. I portray the CF-units as without targetting systems, well, I'll tell you that later. To the emailz!

It just might happen, that one day, you'll wake up, get on MOCpages, and see something of mine with a 100 comments. And you'll say: "I knew he could do it." ...Lol. I don't even know what I'm saying.
