Beach Planet

Post by Kooshie on Tue Aug 16, 2016 4:37 pm

First topic message reminder :

Scott's probably around here somewhere, trying to recover from James.

The water's pretty nice.

Perfect place to dump slavers.

"Oh look, used robot shop!" Ellie said. "Let's go gawk at Asher's cousins!"

After a little haggling, Starr took the metals and looked to Kay again, sending the items to her shuttle then coming to him. "Alright, one more stop then we can relax"

~~~
Shane looked to the shop curiously "I wonder if we should try to free any of them if they are like him."

Kay smiled softly. [We should get something nice for Asher, he looked pretty miserable about being confined to the ship.]

--

"Man have we got that sorta cash?" Matt asked, curiously peering into the shop.

"Oh man, I hope they're not like him. He's so serious," Ellie said, pushing open the door and brushing paint chips from her hands. "Let's not free them, okay?"

"awww Ellie, the robots aren't gonna come get you. Least ... I don't think they are." He looked around the shop.

"We totally don't have the budget, either," said Ellie.

The dealer looked up at them from behind the counter, a long-suffering look on his face. "Robot rights activists?" he asked wearily.

Shane shrugged and followed Ellie "I personally don't." He answered and looked at the androids in the store.

~~~
"What will he like?" Starr asked as she looked at the stores around them

"There are robot rights activists!?" Matt perked up, grinning at the poor guy.

---

Kay pondered that. Hmm, what did Asher want or need? Wait.. the family had taken everything from them, including his tablet right? Honestly Kay had no idea what Asher did with his tablet but as everyone seemed to have them and he was pretty sure he must get bored while everyone else was sleeping, maybe that was an idea? He held up his own tablet and then wrote [Which reminds me, I owe you for the omnicom.]

Scott put his head in his hands. "Son, there are corn plant rights activists. Activists will join any cause, no matter how silly it is."

"Corn plants deserve the same humane conditions as any other plant," Ellie said defensively.

The androids, who were lounging in one corner of the room away from the smaller service bots, watched the people with mild interest.

Starr chuckled and shook her head "That is not something I am worried about, but it is a good idea" She said then motioned to an electronics store "Let's try there"

~~~
Shane smiled and shook his head a little "Wow, a niche for everyone huh?"

Matt looked skeptical. "Are they terrans? Because I can believe that, terrans are wiiiiierrrrrd" He put an arm around Ellie. "So weird." He whispered, laughing.
He stared at the androids, yeah it was creepy seeing them for sale like this. So creepy. He waved. "hey guys, how's it goin?"

"Of course. Terrans have a thing for corn products, and some people think they exploit the plants, which is stupid. Please don't give me a robot rights lecture, I'm still recovering from the last android I sold. He was horrible."

One of the androids nodded in greeting to Matt, face not showing a change in emotion at all. "Very well, Sir," she said. "How are you today?"

Matt made a face. "Sir? Man, I haven't been called sir... since the last time I got arrested maaaan. " He laughed. "Ooo was he really serious and give you lectures about having too much fun?" Matt asked. He didn't really think poorly of Asher, in fact he kinda liked the guy, but hey, he made fun of Kay too. "Actually, doesn't look like you have much fun around here. Maaan, what'd you do to end up here? Who'd you piss off?"

"That's usually courtesy to call a male 'sir' and a female 'ma'am'." Shane said and looked over to the androids then back to the others

"We are generally expected to refer to all organic beings by titles of respect," the android said, "If you find that disconcerting, I will, of course, stop."

"He liked sitting on the counter and giving me flirtatious looks, and talked my ear off," Scott grumbled. "He was the worst one I've ever had to deal with."

Ellie giggled.

"flirtatious looks?" Matt started to laugh. "Oh maaan, we could have had a fun robot!"
He eyed the android warily. "Yeah, only times i've ever been called sir i've had my hands in cuffs and/or been about to have my head kicked in. " He grinned. "I'm a janitor man, I get no respect."

Scott shuddered. "I don't keep my robots on as tight a leash as some, but I had to shut him up so often. Seven series are smart, like parrots. And like parrots, they develop terrible neuroses. Give me a Five series any day."

"Your preference is noted," the android said in her pleasant monotone.

Matt felt a pang of sympathy for the android, being described as a parrot? Hmm, he was pretty sure they were a bit more complex than a parrot. He glanced to Ellie and Shane.

"So what's the difference?" He asked, he watched the female android out of the corner of his eye.

Kay nodded and would find a simple internet tablet, a little more complex than his own. He was rather glad he was getting paid, it might not have been much, but it gave him a little petty cash. He really would have to go work out how to transfer Imperium credits to something more widely accepted, so many places would refuse them due to the Imperium pissing off basically everyone else in the universe. Bah.

Gift purchased, he rejoined Starr for their lovely black market jaunt.

"When the Five series was built, the firmware to simulate a complex organic mind already existed, but processors powerful enough to run that firmware were still big, and ran too hot. So androids back then were given a simpler OS. They're great workers, and understand the concept of emotion, but they don't throw temper tantrums because they don't have emotion simulation." Scott looked over at the androids, "Right, Daniel?"

"As you say, Sir," Daniel replied.

"Man, I wish our robot was like that," Ellie said.

"I dunno, it's kinda creepy having them so... submissive." Matt remarked. "so... the emotion thing, that's really common in the 7s? like, are they all a little bit weird? " He edged away from the series 5's a little. "Are you guys... happy?" He asked warily. Did they even understand what that meant? yeek, it was seriously unsettling to have these psudo not people just standing there like that. Put into perspective how incredible Asher really was.

Starr looked to Kay and smiled softly "The other stop for me is the mail, I had some stuff sent here for me"

Shane quietly watched and listened to the others.

"It's fairly common for Sevens to develop weird behaviors. Rebellion, anxiety, extroverts, introverts, optimism, pessimism..." Scott shrugged. "I like my robots to act like robots, personally. But Sevens sell really well, and I gotta carry them sometimes to stay in business."

Daniel did a surprisingly convincing imitation of a smile. "We fulfill our duties. That gives us a sense of satisfaction."
