Valentine's special: My producer said, i'd need more female readers so it's time for some emotion stuff.
About this creation
The 14th february, 3000. It’s valentine’s day. People meet their beloved to celebrate some romantic senseless time. Also after many centuries, wars and other problems, the citizen of earth are still awaiting this day. But not in the earth alliance defence department, who the UMRC belongs to now...
February, 14th ; earth alliance register office Iowa Lawyer: “If both partners just sign this paper here, your divorce is official valid.”
Olivia Johnson subscribes.
Mark Johnson looks at the lawyer for a moment and then subscribes. Lawyer: “Good. So, as solicitor of earth alliance department for civil affairs i declare you official to singles. You’re not husband and wife anymore.”
They’re standing up.
Meanwhile at the UMRC... Frank LaGros: “Sorry boss, but we have no idea what’s wrong with the screen. I assume local network connection has an error.“ Carl Meyer:“By the way, can i go home earlier today? My wife and i...” Connel McConnaghal: “I already said no! That’s the 4th computer problem in the administration offices today. If we have a broken network on this floor i need that repaired. Also we’re far behind our work plans. All departments will do their ful shifts, maybe also do overtime” Carl Meyer: “But it’s valentine’s day...” Connel McConnaghal: ”And? My three ex-wives said that too but responsibility is responsibility. Check the connections, if your work is done early you can go early, simple, not? And i don't want to hear the v-word again today.”
Also in the datacenter, romance is a discussed topic... Assistant #1: “I think, today i will tell her...” Assistant #2: “Mh...” Assistant #1: “I mean it’s valentine’s...” Assistant #2: “DON’T say the V-word!” Assistant #1: “You have no romance. I should tell her, it’s the best day for it. Something special.” Assistant #2: “It was just invented for flower sellers and Douglas. Nothing special. And i love my single life. I can give the V-day to every women whenever i want, every day, every night. Mostly at night, hehe..”
Also others make plans... Frank LaGros: “Eh? What does this mean mister Meyer?”
Carl Meyer: “Oh no! NO! It’s not for you. Err... it’s because McConnaghal doesn’t let me go. We hadn’t time for each other for so long. I told my wife to visit me later. I will surprise her. Cool, eh?” Frank LaGros: “ARE YOU SERIOUS? That’s not a big heart, it’s a bunch of alien debris. We sorted them for days and you are playing with them? If you forgot, this is a science laboratory and no dating cafe! If i come back tommorrow i want to see all where it belong to!!”
In the city, Professor Bishop accidentally meets Olivia Johnson. Mortimer M.Bishop: “Ah. Olivia. Nice to meet you. And happy Valen...oh i forgot about Mark. How are you?”
Olivia Johnson smiles: “Oh, it’s ok. And don’t say the V-word! Hihi, Mark and i never celebrated it. Not important anymore. I’m fine. How’s going at the UMRC?” Mortimer M.Bishop: “McConnaghal terrorizes everybody but until now, no apocalypses happened. I have free, nothing to do in my office.” Olivia Johnson: “So, what are you doing here? I mean, it’s valen...hihi, i mean the V-day. Do you have a date or something?”
Mortimer M.Bishop: “Oh, ehrr no,... not yet. Honestly i was on the way to visit you...asking how you are. After, you know, maybe you’d need someone to talk. I thought. But you wasn’t at home...nevermind. What are you doing here?” Olivia Johnson: “Surprised? Should i stay at home crying all the day? It was the right decission to leave Mark. And here i am. I’m an attractive women in her best years. I have no man and no job. It’s time for a restart. I’m open for something new. In my career...and also in private life, if you understand...” Mortimer M.Bishop: “Good to hear. That’s exactly the point i wanted to talk with you. Listen. Maybe this sounds a bit weird but what i wanted to say, on this special day...is...”
Someone is shouting “Hi!” over the street. Olivia Johnson: “Oh sorry, i forgot. Morty, i’m waiting here for a date. That’s Antonio. We met in the internet. He’s marketing director in a hovercar producer company, likes the same music as me and has the same hobbies, at least according to his facebook account. Oh, and his emails were soo romantic. I know, it’s a little fast but why not trying? We can talk tomorrow. Goodbye.”
Carl Meyer: “We checked the complete intranet connections but after all systems worked fine. Then computers in the MEDlab broke. I thought, the problem must be somewhere in our main powerlines but we checked them all. No damage.” Connel McConnaghal: “I can’t work with a science center if all its high-tech doesn’t work.”
At the M.F.Z.P.E.S.S.S.S.C.A.P.S. sector, the subspace singularity creates an immense noise, that the workers barely understand each other by shouting. Technican: “All energy levels normal. According to the security-program nothing changed since the last configuration. The power plant can’t be responsible for the blackouts.”
In the datacenter admin room the assistanst meet again. Assistant #1: “Hey! Here you are. All datacenters are down.” Assistant #2: “Yes. They ran very low. Also the whole center had several problems with their systems and also the electric. Mr. Meyer and LaGros watched all laboratories but didn’t find anything unusual, so i thought, maybe it’s a software problem. The center activity is controlled by a security program. I shutted the whole network down to start a complete “X-RAY”-analyse with the server. If we have a virus i should find him. Oh, if it’s important, you can use that computer. It’s safe.”
Assistant #1: “Oh, let’s see...mh...mhmhmh... ah! Yeah i know what i’ll give Jennifer for valentine’s day. I’m sure she’ll date me.” Assistant #2: “Mh? You never talked to her. You don’t really know her...and won’t ever have a date.”
Assistant #1: “Wanna bet? She’s single, didn’t vote for Clarkson, her favourite flowers are daffodils and she loves the singer James Brick. Oh, his new album is out since today!” Assistant #2: “Eh? And how do you know that all?” Assistant #1: “Simple. I’m hacking into the government’s database and read her personnel file.”
Assistant #2: “You did what?! But you could lose your job if McConnaghal finds out.” Assistant #1: “I don’t need a job, i’ll get a date with Jenny! I have to go, buying a cd from James Brick”
Assistant #2 shakes his head.
Janitor: “Hey! Don’t you have eyes? These rude youngsters.”
Assistant #2: “Excuse him. He’s in love. It’s V-day.” Janitor: “I see. I hate V-day, my wife always forces me to visit an expensive restaurant. Tztztz. Love is blind. Will you help me to clean this up?” Assistant #2: “Yeah. WAIT! BLINDING! That’s it!”
Janitor: “HEY! Why yu’re running away?” Assistant #2: “It’s important. Janitor, please find McConnaghal, Mr Meyer and the other technicans. Tell them to come to the laboratory section as quick as possible!”
Soon... Connel McConnaghal: “Why wasting my time? This hall is empty. And what do you do with that gun?” Assistant #2: “We had technical problems all over the building. The power plant works correctly, the software too, so Mr. Meyer was right. It’s the network. The main datacable controlling electricity and network configurations for the affected areas is just behind this wall.” Carl Meyer: “But we checked all halls. Nothing is damaged here. Aside, especially this hall is empty?!” Assistant #2: “NO! We just can’t see...”
The chief: “It’s linked with the data cable. That’s why our systems were broken. Oh no. It could delete our complete database!” Connel McConnaghal: “Mr. Meyer, shut the energy down quickly!!”
Object 132 notices that it is discovered...
...after a short reaction it escapes by breaking through the roof.
After a few seconds it left earth orbit in stealth mode and disappeared.
Later in the datacenter admin room... Assistant #2: “The X-Ray scan was able to find out all activities of the object. Unfortunately, we can’t say, how much time the Mysterion had to scan our database. It could be here for days, weeks, maybe since the fleet visited the solar system. We didn’t lose any data but a big amount of files was downloaded.” Connel McConnaghal: “A real Spysterion. So the Mysterions know everything about our technology and maybe the military, too? Or were we able to discover it timely?”
Assistant #2: “That’s the curious thing. Only 1192 files were copied and only in one folder. It belongs to our exoculture lexica. The Mysterion was especially interested in all topics dealing about the U.F.O.lien race.”” The chief: “U.F.O.liens? That’s a small independent space empire surrounded by U.N.E.s space. What do the Mysterions have to do with them?”
Meanwhile, the assistant realizes his plan... Jennifer: “Oh hello. What does this mean?” Assistant #1: “Oh, hello Jenny...er...what i wanted to say...i mean, you don’t know me much but we could change that...because it’s valent...and i thought maybe...oh, this is for you...as gift, i, ehr...i want to say.. i like you...somehow...”
Jennifer: “Daffs? My favourite flowers! The new album of James Brick? How do you know? You’re sweet. Wanna go for a drink?”
And while the day comes to an end, everybody finds time for romance. Mrs. Meyer: “That was a great idea, honey. Oh, and this was a Mysterion?”
Assistant #1: “...and so i have a date tonight. We’ll go to Luigi’s. I have the feeling she’ll like me. Maybe we are related souls.” Assistant #2: “Come on. You read her personnel file. Face it:You cheated.” Assistant #1: “Hehe, and? It worked. Like my grandfather always said: All’s fair in love and war. I have to go now, bye.”
-Excuse for two “plotty” episodes in a row. Season 2 will build some plotlines slowly up, which come together later for real epic stuff. The next episode will contain some good old action. And i promise: It will getting hot.
-Unfortunately it may takes 2 more weeks or so. I hope you liked this season so far. Speculations in the Mysterion Lovers group or the UMRC topics in Tall Tales.
