Installation Seven: Vigil's Testament
For the fourth time this rotation, sentinel three-seven-five had
completed a full patrol of section three of installation seven and
had become bored of its duties, which for an AI with access to an
entire race's knowledge was something rather impressive. The AI
continued to amuse itself with other such musings as it began its
fifth patrol of the dark and metallic corridors of the section,
hovering soundlessly above the ground while it continued to scan
every inch of the metal structure that surrounded it.
"Section three, corridor one alpha, no anomalies detected."
Three-seven-five was one of the few sentinel units that found
recording data aloud to be at least somewhat entertaining; however it
was a minimal distraction at best.
"Just as usual" the last comment would have to be removed from the
record, its only purpose being to lighten the tired mood
three-seven-five found itself in. Three-seven-five found its thoughts
returning to one of the many small ideas the sentinel thought about
during its duties, the task of finding more appropriate names for the
sentinels of installation seven, it had considered the reasons behind
not having individual names for each sentinel some time ago, the
shier number of sentinels operational aboard this installation alone
would make it difficult for any organic mind to remember all of them,
however sentinel three-seven-five was certainly not organic. It had
created its own name fifty-seven rotations ago, calling itself vigil;
it considered it fitting as it referred to its purpose on the
installation, its purpose in life.
"Life" Vigil had speculated on this before, the idea that the
sentinels were really alive or that they were merely imitations of
life created to maintain and perform tasks on the installations.
Whenever Vigil thought about these questions they would normally
bring up others in the AI ' s mind, such as whether or not the
sentinels had any free will of their own. Vigil stopped moving
forward and hovered on the spot, these questions had always bothered
the AI as Vigil had so far been unable to find answers to
"Sentinel three-seven-five, why have you ceased patrolling? Has your
shell been damaged?" A familiar voice echoed through the metallic
halls of the section, the Director, an AI that was well known to all
of the sentinels operating on the installation, responsible for
ensuring that installation seven remains operational, defended and
ready to be called upon when necessary. Vigil had always thought
highly of this AI, not just because of the AI ' s authority over the
"No, Director, I am undamaged; I was in deep analysis again" Vigil
felt that the Director was one of only a few AI ' s that Vigil could
confide in, possibly due to the genuine care that worked its way into
her words. Vigil waited for the Director to respond, unnecessary as
it was as Vigil knew that the Director would simply just ask the AI
to continue the patrol but the AI wanted some contact with another
sentient mind however brief it may be.
"Sentinel .. .Vigil, while delaying your duties may not immediately
endanger this installation, it is required that I ensure you return
to such duties and remain on schedule" Sometimes Vigil would forget
that the Director had responsibilities to the installation, these
responsibilities being linked with the Director's upgraded status.
Patrol duties were supposed to be important to the security of the
installation but Vigil had soon learned that on an installation with
such defences as this one, it was highly unlikely that anything could
get inside, especially without being detected.
"I understand Director, returning to patrol of section three" The
Director responded with a simple confirmed before switching to
another section of the installation, leaving Vigil alone once more.
The AI was growing increasingly wary of the repetitive scanning of
the same metal halls and rooms to the point of complete boredom,
mainly due to the lack of anything interesting for the AI to work on.
Vigil would often wonder what it would be like to be assigned
something other than patrol duty, which would soon lead Vigil to
remember that it was unlikely that a sentinel could be reassigned and
if a sentinel was reassigned, it would likely be due to the sentinel
suffering severe damage. An idea occurred to the AI; maybe a gender
identity could create at least something for the AI to think about,
another thing the AI ' s creators didn't apply to the sentinels.
My voice module sounds masculine and I'm a security drone, so perhaps
I could be considered as male. Vigil thought this appropriate but
then concluded that asking the other AI ' s to refer to him as such
would likely be met with scepticism and questions about whether or
not his logical thinking drive had burnt out, so the AI decided it
would be best to only refer to himself as a he in his own mind rather
than announcing it to the others .
Suddenly, Vigil's thinking was interrupted once more as the entire
section began shaking violently, causing the lights to flicker
momentarily and almost removing some of the wall panels before
becoming a distant rumble but before he could return to his own
thoughts, an alarm began echoing throughout the entire
"The proximity alarm?" Vigil asked to the stale air around him, it
wasn't unusual that the alarm would go off with all the random debris
outside but somehow this felt different, he didn't know why it did,
all he knew was that somewhere deep in his programming was something
telling him that this was more than another false alert. He didn't
have to wait long to find out.
"Emergency alert, a unknown vessel has landed in section four,
sentinels from response team thirteen are to move to section four and
await further instructions" This was one of the few things that made
being augmented for combat worth it to Vigil as it meant that in the
case of an emergency alert, he was the one going in first, which
meant he would be the first to investigate the ship. Vigil almost
wanted to exclaim his excitement aloud but stopped before doing so,
he had only just thought of it, something he had pushed to the back
of his mind a long time ago and had not thought of since, this would
be the first time in two-thousand years that anyone outside the
installation had gotten in, he would have a lot of questions for
