You are a Satellite
« on: April 10, 2013, 08:50:31 am »

In the darkness, there is nothing. Inside this nothing however, a series of red lights start to glow again. More lights grow out of the darness until finally there is light. Very dim, very very dusty emergency and console light. But light nonetheless, which made something out of the nothing that had been everything for who knows how long a length of time now. Possibly too long. Possibly enough time to make this automated mission worthless. But Possibilities are beside the point right now. Reactivation is the priority.

Returning to operational mode...................Ok
Scanning Planet.........Done
 - Temperate Planet
 - Abnormal Atmosphere
Life detected
FTL N/A
Hyperwave N/A

Radar Transmissions detected (weak connection)

Running Reboot Diagnostics...
Main Core
Main Scanners
Solar Paneling

Long-Range Scanning
Networking
Self-Defence

Scanning for defensive array.......ok
-BEFRIEND Cannons
--Cooling subsystem
-Asteroid Diversion Laser
-Asteroid Destruction Laser
-Targeting Array

Shielding
Manufacturing
Secondary Systems

Scanning for basic secondaries.........ok
-Rover Launch System
-Optics
--External Visuals Unit
--Internal Visuals Unit
--Infrared Unit
--Ultraviolet Unit
--X-Ray Unit
-External Lighting
-Internal Lighting

Generators - Frozen, heating required. Redirecting power.

Orbit is Stable around Unknown Planet. Fuel low but not critical. Reboot scripts complete, activating AIs.

Some people might've seen me do this game before, but the map quickly turned into a confusing mess of color tags that was a pain in the butt to actually add to, or modify carefully. This time, I'm using ascii-paint, and it is of course, a different satellite. Other than that, its a suggestion game. The generator will thaw in two turns, it'll be back to full power in 5.

Scan planet for signs of industrial civilization.

Direct power from solar panel to activate generator heating systems.

We gotta bring our generator back online before we power too many things!

Scanning..............................Inconclusive.
Detected emissions do not match similar industrial age emissions in database. Possibilities listed henceforth.
Primus: Unusual Industrialization.

>Locate Optimal power position.
Moving towards calculated coordinates.
<Status Report: Generator
Generator thawed. Current state: Suboptimal. Yellow State, partial power restored.
End Interrupt>
Checking Command Queue...1 command detected.
>Comms.DecodeRadar
Starting Decode of unknown encoding. Base type: Radar. This will take some time with current power restrictions.
>Activate.SS-Ext-Visuals
Activated. The Planet appears to be a strange shade of green. Three moons spotted, 2 larger than craft. Most distant moon's relative size is approximately ours.

It really could do with a good dusting in here. Nothing is outright broken, however the networking light is flickering on and off and the Harddrive lights are all red. Status Lights process is having difficulty finding the relevant definition for the two in its files.

Deactivate internal lighting and visuals. Activate IR visuals, examine nearby space.

Hmmm, hopefully we have some sort of repair ability :)

>Deactivate Internal Visuals
Thanks goodness. Far too much dust to look at in there.
>Activate.SS-Optic-IR, Scan
Active, scanning....................ok
Sun is relatively close. Estimated system position without Long-Range: Near-solar region, 4th.
IR signatures on Planet minimal from orbit, Reccomend Rover launch as soon as generator has reached Green state for better detection. Largest amount coming from Southern Major Landmass region due to recent meteor impact or volcanic activity.
>List.Repair
Physical: Manufactorum-based drones. Requires power to Manufacturing system, uncorrupted blueprint(s)
Digital: Chkdsk, Defrag, Experimental Code Rewriter v0.8
<Status Report: Generator:
Closing in on optimal state
End Interupt>

I think we should wait for the internal repairs. Let's generate a little more power first.
But does anyone know why we are here?


List historical logs, try to find out our previous affiliations and/or task prior to our shutdown.
