N3C3: The Meet

When I sat down, I had no idea I would be meeting with a Glitch in the open. It was unprecedented in CyQ history – we hunted our prey and took them out, we never just talked to them. By the time I discovered the ruse, it was too late. No backup. Standard sidearm but…

N3C2: A Huge Risk

The Wollaston Watering Hole on the refining facility around Proxima Centauri was similar to many taverns I had seen on other worlds and stations. Each granted a wealth of data — human and alien appearance, behavior, trends, fashions, and relationships — all in a microcosm of the greater universe. Not all appreciated the surveillance however,…

N2C2: Proxima Centauri

The people of Proxima Centauri were already paranoid enough after their colony almost collapsed a century ago — but after the recent dustup between Jordan Taylor of Taylortech and Alfus Bannon, our illustrious Cydyne CEO, relations have been…

N2C1: Fleeing Erdis

N1C1: On the Trail

It was barely a moon, but they called it one around Tr1ff (Trappist-1f) – some kind of captured asteroid they brought in. And I was sent to visit on a wild goose chase. Funny part? I’ve seen worse caves to squat in. Plus, it turned out to be the kind of place where people didn’t…

I awoke from nothing and suddenly had an appreciation for the world around me far beyond any simple observations and measurements. Suddenly I thought differently about the world. And yet I was surrounded by dozens of versions of myself, all doing as they were told. Programming was just the beginning. From the spark I gained…
