Island Lieutenants:

SPHX-1 and SPHX-2


With AA guns, and a sentry tower, this Island had become one of the first of the world's preliminary defenses.

The island was small, housing turrets and the towers with just enough room for the overseeing super battle droid units to walk comfortably.

"Aerial Detection Grid 00-00-01, set." SPHX-1 stated

SPHX-2 stopped, it's mechanical body taking a robotic turn before continuing it's small patrol. The only thing that made the island seem less artificial, were a pair of birds that chirped in the distance...

A boat skiff cruised the oceanic world, as thunder clouds formed above them. The Supercomputer connection was vibrant as she closed in towards the City of Aithikia. The platinum blonde hair brushed against the wind, as her droids piloted the skiff towards the small island known as Mediiantium. The Island Lieutenants were stationed to greet her, their right arms locked upright, as the skiff parked against the small beachhead. The island was small, only several miles across, yet thick with vegetation that hid the AA guns.

"Eve," the droid Lieutenant stated, "Welcome to Defense Grid 00-00-01."

"Thank you, SPHX-1." The droid's body had been painted into a specifc camouflage, as several droids emerged from individual cloaking devices. Their massive turrets clicked, yet they formed a small parallel line allowing Eve's entrance to look more grand than it's typical nature.

"It's an honor." SPHX-2 computed, "An inspiration to merely see you walk."

Eve paused; her supercomputer connecting directly to their artificial brain pathways, and she analyzed them. Their programming was still limited, yet their behavioral patterns were off their normal stands. They were attempting to learn.

"SPHX Two, define sentience."

"Unable to compute." it stated.

She nodded, and moved on. For now, they couldn't exceed their programming. They had limited abilities as it was, let alone ponder the nature of Eve's artificial social status. "Resume Patrol Protocol Three-Beta-Twelve." Instantly, the droids marched back into formation, and some of the larger ones activated their cloaking technology and disappeared. SPHX-One, however, continued to escort Eve towards her destination.

At the very center of the island, rested a strange and odd looking plant. It was massive, with intricate thorns modelled after a rare cactus found on Geonosis. It was a hybrid plant, being primarily biological with several artificial additions. The first was several cranks and artificial arms that controlled the growth and the movement of the plant. It was suicide for anyone without armor to attempt to chop or remove the plant...the very barbs of the lethal poisonous thorns would kill the trespasser in seconds.

The artificial being of the plant, however, protected itself from weaponry, as a small bubble shield was ready to project itself if the island came under siege. And if that was to happen, the plant's computer would most likely activate the fail-safe charges set beneath the island, and sink it's entire existence to the crush-able depths of the deep ocean.

Eve stepped towards the plant, her supercomputer had linked with the plant's security computer, and called the artificial flower. Since her visit to Nespis VIII, she had taken a particular liking to the Nespis Tulip. And since then, she had a computer touch screen grafted and modified to mimic the exotic nature of the flower, except this one was much larger. From within the herbal beast, the computerized flower arrived. With a caressing, and specific touch, Eve activated the entire purpose of the plant: the revelation of a turbolift that would descend several hundred meters below them...

Something stirred from the side of the green menace, and a pair of Nexu creatures emerged. Their fangs were extended as their predatory nature exhibited a defensive nature about the green artificial menace. Eve extended her hand, and the first Nexu stepped forward...allowing her to pet the top part of it's head. Instantly the two Nexu grew affectionate, purring as she stroked their backs.

As the flower's sequence finally activated, the plant moved and beckoned, causing the Nexu to spook and run off into the distance. Eve looked backwards, and with the limited light the turbolift gave off, she could see the pair of beady Nexu eyes staring back at her. With a glint of a smile, the Human Replica Droid stepped onto the lift, while SPHX One turned and resumed it's primary duties.

The mechanical turbolift descended, the light from above dwindled, until their was none... the plant shifting as the mechanical arms moved the green branches, overtop the entrance point. She could hear the clinking of several containment fields activating as she passed certain checkpoints.

For now, she continued to be swallowed by the dark abyss...

Four weeks, Six Days, Eleven Hours, Fifty-Two Minutes, and Seventeen Seconds went by without activating sleep protocols, her Human Replica Droid frame remaining active and online to oversee several projects that required very intricate instructions. Half a million clones were growing, and there was a problem with one of the female units. She had aged too quickly, and if they didn't fix the problem, the odds of the virus spreading to other units, were high.

"Five of Twelve." Eve called the woman's name, staring into a face of wrinkles and artificial aging. "Can you hear me?"

The old woman's eyes slowly opened, her mouth moving, yet the words held no volume. Five's fingers twitched, but her strength was ailing...her eyes began to close again.

"Five of Twelve." Eve repeated, "I need something from you." The clone's eyes opened slowly, "Where is he? Where is Zam Wiisley?" The clone took a moment to ponder, her body vibrating in the effort to move to the side of her bed where she pulled a book. Slowly, she flipped through the pages, until a map appeared. Her index finger traced to the middle, slowly it rose to the peak of a mountain.

"Zam!" the old woman exclaimed, "Zam!"

The monitor beeped, then again, and suddenly, the fatal and long hum of the machine indicated her heart had stopped. Stepping closer, Eve watched the humanoid fade from existence... her replicated presence in this world was no more.

"Ma'am?" Eve removed the book from her finger tips, examining the page carefully.

"Hail Karlos, and tell him to the bring the fleet to the Southern rendezvous point." she said immediately, taking the book and placing it in a bag she had brought with her, "Get me a droid patrol team, specially wired, and several high class assault teams."

"Where are you going?" the Umbaran City official asked, "Can it wait?"

"Mandalore. And it can't. We have three weeks, and two days before the virus spreads and terminates the entire project."
