[1.1] Centralian Ordered Chaos: Octagonbase Challenges [5.1
The FreeGunners numbered 17 hitech mercenaries, now rejuvenated of MBS (mind-body-spirit), being eight humans, two animans, an enhanced dog and five robots along with a single android.
As they explored a section, of the Octagon, the humans moved in working, self defensive, powerarma in some cased being specialised. Three men were cyberhackers as were two women with the others being fighting mercenaries with each another specialisation being, in turn, explosives, gun use and melee combat. The first two were men and the last was a woman.
The male chimpman, type animan, was a scout gunner and the female catman was a scout melee fighter.
The dog could fight but was more for detecting certain kinds of threat.
The handyrobots carried gear and serve-supported in other ways as they moved each on four wheels for the time being. They could hoverfly but did so only when necessary because doing such used much more electricity.
The android was an alpha replicant with multiple skills to offer.
That area, of the Octagon, had not been accessed directly, through the network-systems, by the Arisers that were proven so far to be all XFARIAns, even the registered animals, plants, robots and a small number of androids. The Octagonnet had admitted that the special, core, of itself was the Octagonus but that it was cut off somehow as was the subsection that it was in.
The environment was typical of Prewarday decades built during the more conventional WW3 where superweapons were used only sporadically and on a low key basis. Only the more controllable types were used, according to the International Transitional Accord, ITA, that left no lasting damage or so went the theory.
The hallways, chambers, were generally bland, hard, and efficiently functional but open to change with 2Dwalls, 3Dwalls and ways to protectively display items of interest.
They came to an abrupt halt at a place of burned, partly melted, floor and walls along with some scorching of the ceiling. A strange robot, of a pyramid shape, was partly melted into a wall but other remnants indicated there may have been more than one destroyed in what seemed to have been some kind of ambush.
Gerald Myers was not the best cyberhacker, of the FreeGunners, but was damned good at it; he also had other, handy, specialisations of which one was forensics that he had gained from working closely, at times, with the married Stormstar couple. He spoke out with enthusiasm reflecting his rejuvenated condition. "A defensive action that destroyed more than one cyborzmid. Deadly minions, of the Cyborznet, that was said to serve the Triquatrinet as did other networks."
Yvonne, the femme fatale, and melee combat specialist, of a former elite assassin, spoke out. "Triquatrinet was the official name being the triple purpose Tryihinet, the Quanet serving it along with the Trylonet and a range of subnetworks being mostly subservient to the Triskytrinet but sometimes of very special status. The Cyborznet was a subnetwork serving the whole Triquatrinet."
"The KGB Twilight Division, that specialised in the paranormal and superscientific, accidentally gained sensitive data on the true nature of the Triquatrinet. They managed to send warnings, of the Triquatrinet Threat, to over 10,000 electronic destinations before nearly the whole division was wiped out in a series of brutal, efficient, attacks by unidentified foes. Despite the temporary demise of the KGBTD, it was rebuilt from scratch up with many improvements, the warnings did much damage to the conspiracy behind the Triquatrinet Threat. It was a painful wake up call to the internal security apparatus of the USSR."
"I was a field agent, of the KGB, at the time that sometimes did missions for the KGBTD. So I was one who gained a data package just seconds before the destruction of the base that it came from."
The USA had been the instigator, of the Triquatrinet Program of Projects, the TQTPP along with three transnational corporations, based in that superpower, and two other organisations of great WPI (wealth, power and influence). They had been the TechnoCorp SkyTechno, CyberRobo, McAerospace, the TriInstituion and the FFF (Fortunate Futures Foundation). How they had lost control of it all, was an earlier question, replaced with one of had the situation ever been that straight forward?
