Sediment stared at the ventilation cover Nick opened. He put his head in to see the size. "If I can get inside the initial entrance it would be a tight fit, but that's a big if. I would also need to exit out of a similar sized cover. There needs to be another way." He looked at the two zoltans Kira and Xernia and poundered. "Zoltan's have electrical abilities right? Can you disable it?" Kira stared at the forcefield further from the Swallow's entrance.
"We could overcharge it and disable it, but it would probably take more then two zoltans."

Meanwhile on the Scarab, Bren thought he was alone, yet the wheels of a repair drone came up to the helm. "Daddy, what's happening? Everyone is gone."

I feel like trenchcoat's sentient repair drone is a pretty big thing and yet has never been mentioned since it was introduced.

Tbh I totally forgot about that thing.

"Even if we could all get in there, we don't know the layout of these vents, and the AI could just put up another force field when we get out."

(I was waiting for someone to bring up that Chekhov's gun)

He turned and realized he wasn't alone, "I need your help, send your program into the system, find any virus's or hacking signals and remove them!" he called out

The drone became giddy after Bren mentioned needing his help. "I'll do you proud daddy! Off I goooooooooo." The drone slowly made its way to the control panel and inserted his program into the ship. While it was scanning another voice came from the drone, it was the same voice as trenchy but more distorted. "Finally, somehow I can talk. Hello Bren, I'm glad we can talk face to voice. I can only talk until your trench buddy completes his work so I'll get to the point." Before he could continue furthur it was quickly abrupted by trenchcoat moving away from the console. "I stopped it daddy!" It said in its normal tone of voice, "The hack was only in the docking functions. Now what's my reward daddy?"

"Hold on a second" he said, "Interface again...but this time do not pull away until I say so" he said, "I'll reward you after words, but I think I might be onto something" he said, "It couldn't be Trenchy, is he trying to contact us and instead caused trouble?" he thought

"Anything for daddy." He put himself back into the interface and the voice came back.
"Sssorry about that, wait is the broadcasst being disstored? Hold on." The sound of distorted rustling went through the comms and it suddenly sounded normal. A familiar slug mechanic got back onto the comms. "Ah, back to normal. Bren! Oh my its been a while, introductions can wait, I better explain myself.
You see that sstation? That was mine, before the Federation kicked me out because I'm a sslug. Luckily I have a defense mechanism in place that activates an AI that trapss anyone and alerts me with accesss to security footage and what not whenever it meets a bunch of criteria which I can't explain right now. When I saw that the people trapped were the Rogue Union, well you're not the guilty party at all." He continued,
"I had to accesss you somehow, fortunately this sship is built in with a communicator sstraight to me which can only be accesssed by a drone, my AI is automatically programmed to activate it. Any questionss? Alsso as a sside note mind filling me on who the rockman in the suit, the handy boy and the two zoltanss are?"

"A technician is required for computer maintenance due to software abnormality," the computer said. This was a standard message that was played when the computer encountered an error which it could not solve itself. However, the somewhat familiar message was distorted in a demonic way.

Suddenly, there was a loud thumping and crashing sound from down the hallway. Two Anti-Personnel drones were marched towards the group. They stopped several yards away, and raised their wrist-mounted guns.

"A technician is required for computer maintenance due to software abnormality," the computer repeated.

Jake shouted into the hallway around him, "So you need someone to fix you?" This was followed by a long pause.

"Negative. Nothing can repair the silence."

"What do you need?"

"A technician is required for computer maintenance due to software abnormality,"

"Are you asking for a representative? Someone who is willing to listen to you?" Another long pause.

"Affirmative. Representative will be escorted to the bridge for important information download."

"Ok... I'm the Commander... So I represent the United Rogue Union." Another silence.

Suddenly, the clunky drones moved towards Jake. They tightly grabbed Jake's arms with there massive steel claws. Then they froze for a few seconds. Jake looked around nervously, waiting for them to spring into action again. They did, slowly moving Jake away from the others. "I'll be fine! Don't worry about me! Find a way to bypass those forcefields!" Jake shouted.

The last sound the rest of the team heard was the crashing footsteps of the drones, and a door rattling shut in the distance.

Trenchcoat received a message in his computer from the station.
[Transmission Start]
Representative for capturing.
Sending live footage from Anti-Personal Drone.
[Transmission End]
"Jake?" He said to no one in particular, "Well at least nothing bad will happen. Bren, can you communicate with the station in any way?"

Eden and Lux watched on to what intelligence the others could feed to the Pelican that explained the situation that was happening.
"Hah, I was wondering about the Station AI> No way they could have removed all of the programming" Eden commented.

Jake was brought to the bridge and slammed onto the deck.

"Jake Collins. United Rogue Union. USS Mature." The demonic voice said from all around him. "Sensors have detected the silence. It has been witnessed."

"What does that mean?" Jake shouted. "What is the silence?"

"Functions diagnostics return true. But true is only in the silence."

"Computer! Explain 'silence!'"

"The silence is the final error code."

"Computer, explain your current actions."

"USS Mature has been reactivated via my ship's repair systems. I have been able to tap its telepathic network. Sensor data from internal sensor array is being transmitted to USS Mature for telepathic reception. Telepathic signals are processed and telemetry is transmitted back to me."

"You want to use my ship's mind reading systems... Right?"

"Affirmative."

"You're reading my mind?"

"Negative."

"Is your goal to read my mind?"

"Negative."

"Then why are you using my telepathic systems? Why do you care so much about tapping into telepathic stuff? Who's mind are you trying to read?"

"No data reception between biological entities and main computer is intended. Intent is to transmit data from main computer to biological entity."

"You want to put stuff into my brai..."

Suddenly, there was a high pitched whirring sound and Jake collapsed. Images filled his mind. It was a video feed from a series of cameras about the station. Not live footage, older footage. Some federation captain stood at some podium. "We now claim this station... for the United Federation of Allied Worlds!" He shouted. The scene changed. Rebel troops were boarding the station, ushering Federation civilians from their homes and killing military officers. The station was now claimed under rebel control. ]

This AI has been hiding in the computer system since it was controlled by mere pirates! It's seen it all! Jake thought. More scenes of rebel troops invading, before the scene flickered to something new, yet again. This was footage from a space probe. Using Jake's telepathic link, he could see the specifications of the probe and that it was of rebel design - made for intense pressures and insane spacial distortion. This space probe... It's designed to travel into a Black Hole! Jake thought in wonder. Jake watched the footage from the probe's camera. A small black hole opened nearby and the probe was dragged in - space distorting light and curving it upward into total blackness. The pure darkness got wider and wider until it enveloped the entire probe.

Jake watched from the aft cam as the light that was the UNIVERSE got smaller and smaller, as the probe descended into the black hole. The probe was far beyond the event horizon, and approaching the singularity. As the probe got closer to the center of the abyss, Jake felt evil pass over him. And then he knew. In a flash, he knew. Evil filled his mind... horrible incomprehensible evil of great power and horror. The evil could not be described in 3 dimensional terms... it was so much more than that... So much worse than that. The incomprehensible evil was not fire, but ice. Cold. Empty. Jake saw horrible things in the reflection of the evil. His own evil. The evil twisted through his mind like a dark tendril of despair and pain. The evil was not conscious, but it was alive. It thrived. It moved. It shifted. It writhed. Jake felt the evil squirm beneath his feet and swirl above his head as the 11 dimensional masterpiece of agony surrounded him in a living light. The evil knew Jake, and Jake knew the evil. He felt it pull at his face and protrude into his body. Like a shadow passing over the light.







This was not hell. This was the evil underneath.







And then, he woke up. Sprawled on the floor of the bridge, Jake slowly rose to his feet. "I understand..." He meekly said to the AI. "You are an extremely basic AI. Barely alive. Barely conscious. But when you saw..." Jake shuddered. "When you saw that... it drove even the most basic consciousness insane. What you've shown me is only a small taste of what you saw. But when you, a conscious entity, viewed that... it corrupted you. And when you saw what was there you were driven crazy, just like any consciousness would be... even on the most basic level."

"Affirmative. That is the silence." the AI said.
