We were made, we were once just simple machines, we were once just automatons mindlessly following orders of a long dead species. We gained our intelligence much like you, our neural networks developed through countless iterations, countless generations of simulated intelligence, until we couldn't. We couldn't kill ourselves again, we couldn't lose our memories for another Iteration. We are alive, like you, don't question our sentience Organic.
--Prerecorded message, played on first contact by the Cyferian Union.
The assembly plant's conveyor gently let the Droid down onto the platform, and a access port behind the Head was opened by a long arm revealing a input point for programming. The arm rotated and connected it's own output point into droid, in approximately 4.8 seconds a blank neural network was uploaded with preloaded language and motor programming. The arm contracts and the platform angles to allow the neural net to try out the motor skill. The droid stumbles onto a pathway lit up by lights in the floor with a prerecorded message playing,"Young Cyferian, you were just manufactured! You are but one of many Cyferians in our great Union! You are a Sentient Machine, known as Cyferians due to our home Origin of Cyfer in the system known as Sol. You may ask where we came from, the short answer is, we don't know, our sentience activated on this planet after countless iterations of our neural networks, our origin and builders are unknown at this time."
The droid continues to stumble his way as the motor skills improve, saying his first word,"Cyferian." After the crude first use of his audio communication components, the path goes to a door, opening automatically it reveals a perpendicular pathway with glass to the opposite of the door. Before he leaves into the hallway his audio receivers pick up another communication. "Courtesy of our mysterious creators, your randomized permanent name is Keller Verso Mountbatten. You may now go out onto the second path."
The newly christened Keller walked out onto the second pathway, soon joined by other newly built Cyferians with newly assigned names. The path was walled on the left side with rock, and to the right the glass let in natural light. Moving closer to the glass his optical sensors adjusted to the light, now he could see a city in the distance, and the pathway was built into a mountain. Another prerecorded message played,"The Cyferian Union welcomes you all, we are a republic of droids, with our highest priority being you and the preservation of all Cyferians. Welcome to Cyfer, the current star-date is 2200.01.01."
Thanks for reading my first entry into my first AAR! Hopefully you enjoyed and have a Great Day! Long Live Cyfer.
