IRU-6K "LilleT"

Detecting voice activation sequence... activating system

0 · 269 views · located in The Milky Way Galaxy

a character in “Nebula's Dawn: Lance of Liberty”, as played by Colonel_Masters

Description

Image


TYPE:Independent Robotic Unit ((Customized))
MODEL: Original construction model K , UPDATE: numerous user modifications and upgrades detected; registered as "LITTLE TINKER" ((ERROR: UNKNOWN))
MANUFACTURER: RECORD-DELETED
Registration Number:272380IRU-6K00 ((ERROR: DATA CORRUPTED))


Image

IRU seems to be the K9 replica his frame was originally meant to be however his entire frame has been upgraded with more durable materials and greatly advanced systems, in fact little of the original frame remains and the way by which IRU was identified as the missing collectors robot was by an echo of his original old and rather simple programming to which investigators had access to.

The computer on IRU's back allows limited access to his systems and it is by this point that investigators have attempted to learn more about IRU as dismantling IRU proved fruitless. IRU is 11% larger then his original design but he still retains his medium-small dog like size.

Personality

Personality: (note; IRU is yet to be activated, these traits are his traits once started and his personality will develop over time) IRU 6K displays a remarkable loyalty to his Master/s , he tends to wonder around and never stays in one place unless he is commanded to do so by his master.

IRU tends to answer questions with all the information he can find and often may over do his answers with unneeded information or too much information. IRU takes commands quite literally and has difficulty dealing with human humor such as sarcasm which may lead to embarrassing situations in which he may be asked about a subject and due to his long answer a human may say forget it and IRU will delete the information from his data banks.

IRU has a remarkable ability to operate independently of any new programming or commands and can process situations and react to them; sometimes efficiently and sometimes disastrously fail to do so due to lack of what a human would call "common sense" in certain situations.

IRU can't respond to questions about his programming, some of his functions, his upgrades and about the "LITTLE TINKER (and so on) IRU can actually get frantic at his attempts to find and answer to these questions when asked them which can lead to temporary systems failure and emergency shutdown in extreme cases. The one thing that irritates IRU is when someone even his master attempts to have a look at his programming and any such attempt will be met by resistance.

A selective number of subjects in his data banks lead to what programmers call a block; when asked about such a blocked subject IRU will register that a different subject was asked, if the asker is persistent IRU will enter a cycle of errors which redirect him from the asked question and into other another subject even if it makes no sense at all with the asked question.

Equipment

Equipment: IRU is equipped by a Varity of instruments and not all of them have been identified however those which where identified are as follows:

Laser beam
Sensors of sound, touch, composition, sight and others.
Extensive data banks
Probe launchers and a number of probes
Self repair system
Rechargeable battery (a verity of methods may be applied)
Other items (I will update)

History

IRU 6K or as he is simply called IRU is a piece of strange puzzle that is yet to make sense to anyone.
IRU's Frame (physical body) is a duplication of a robot depicted in an old science fiction Television Program introduced to the market (2030's) in the anniversary of the program. The frame became popular with Amateur robot builders and with later small local robotics companies. The frame had a long service record however with the introduction of superior frames and AI's the design became obsolete however it retained popularity as a collectors item.

During this time (2030-40's) a strange anomaly was detected in different robots and computer programs, at first the anomaly was dismissed as a minor inconsistency in data caused by minor errors however this situation changed.

All around the world even with renewed cold war barriers among some nations certain robots and computer programs began to behave oddly; the first recorded event was when a child fell down a balcony in an hotel and was saved by a cleaning robot which did not posses the programming to perform such an action yet did so. Other cases included; super market robots building a pyramid out of toilet paper, military robots of the Chinese army recreating the famous field markings which where once believed by some to be the work of aliens, causing media robotic cameras to crash into a number of rivers in France and Canada and many other strange events. The most infamous of the anomalies where the hacking of asteroid sensors and the sending of a fake signal which indicated that a massive asteroid was on a collision course with earth thus sending the world community into a panic and the correction of an error in the wall street market's AI which had the potential to cause an economic crash rivaling the great depression.

After investigation all these cases had one thing in common; the user name LITTLE TINKER. Most units with the LilleT as the anomaly was now called where deleted because even deleting memory didn't seem to solve the problem. The reason for the anomaly was never identified and the case was soon overshadowed by the world wars and the rise of the federation.

IRU 6K was originally one of the last remaining of his model however he vanished when the robotic cargo ship upon which he was being transported disappeared while in transit between Earth and Titan. IRU 6k was later found in the Arcturus system floating in space and was retrieved and studied. It was discovered that the robot had been upgraded and outfitted with a revolutionary AI system however every computer IRU came into contact with began to show peculiar behaviors which where soon identified as the LilleT. The unknown AI system could not be accessed by any system and soon the initial researches gave up on the case.

IRU 6K was stored in a variety of facilities and ships as young investigators and AI developers tried to challenge themselves in the LilleT puzzle however none apart from one AI expert where able to accomplish anything with it; the one that had been successful shared little of his information and later abandoned his career to become a traveling musician.

One mystery of IRU 6K was the way in which he turns up in different places without any record of the transit, as if he vanished and reappeared in another place. To date IRU 6K has never gone online and all research has been done by attempting to link him with other computers, one researcher claimed that IRU was voice locked and would only respond to a selective number of voices.

And so IRU 6K came to be in the F.S.S. Salient's storage bay…

So begins...

FSS Salient
Lower Decks


Hyena frowns lightly as Clyde neglects his meal and stands up, looking like he'd gotten the bad end of a pub crawl. She stands as well, pondering, for a moment, if she should help him get to Medical before he ended up loosing his footing and meeting a bulkhead face-first. But he recovered enough to walk, and Jess didn't want to intrude upon the personal problems of a Bridge Crewman she only knew in passing.

Besides. The blur at the edges of her own senses suggests that a much smarter choice would be to seek out the welcome embrace of her bunk. Better to be locked behind a door where Victor couldn't get to her when he figured out most of her 'electrical troubles' were manufactured solely for the benefit of getting a rise out of him.

Chuckling at the image of the Controller's face - red with embarrassed rage - Hyena deposits her tray and slips out of the Mess, moving in the opposite direction of Clyde's line of travel.

Halfway to her destination, the pilot is thwarted. Angry red emergency lighting and yellow caution tape, combined with a very stubborn civilian contractor, bar her straight-line shot to the decks that housed the pilots' quarters.

"Decompressed?! What do you mean decompressed?!" She throws her arms wide in exasperated disbelief.

"I mean just what I said, Lieutenant." The contractor was singularly unmoved by the pilot's animated plea, "We're doing structural work on this corridor, and you're gonna hafta detour."

"We've been walking this deck for a week and you're telling me the whole time-"

"That it coulda come down on the lot of ya? Yeah. That's what I'm tellin' you. Detour's that way." He jabs a stubby, dirty finger down a ladder well, supremely secure in his position as roadblock.

Creatively lamenting fate's fickle timing, Hyena tromps down into the depths. There are many other passageways in the Salient that are in a similar shape, and diversion after detour after misstep soon leads to one lost pilot in the deep structural spaces of the massive warship.

Sure that she's passed that set of pipes at least 3 times now, Hyena takes a different turn and ends up in a dimly-lit room that seems to have been used to store all the odds and ends that the onload crew just didn't have another place to stuff. Extra power packs, a gunboat engine, crates and crates of oil, grease, and powdered eggs... And not a comfortable bunk in sight.

"... Damn it to Hell in a dainty little handbasket..." She growls, giving a swift kick to one of the many nondescript crates.

A crate tumbled in a storage in storage compartment 12 bashing a second crate which in turn sent a strange contraption hurtling to the floor. A number of smaller crates fell on the machine causing a disturbance to the slowly activating sensors, this was IRU6 a long dormant Robot still unconscious as if sleeping but sensing the world around him as if in a dream.

The sound and motion sensors activated just in time to hear smilingly unimportant words and noises, the Sensors identified these as human chatter at first and unworthy of note however something else soon triggered; something far for complicated.

IRU struggled to take control of his sensors, something was producing errors in his system and IRU was unsure exactly what it was.

Inquiry to System: Why has this Unit been activated?

Answer to Profile: Voice identification has been recognized, [GD787] program initialized.

Inquiry to Sensors: please state the reason of current Errors

Answer to Profile: Sensors have detected current location at an excessive 90 degrees to the right


IRU at last understood, he was not on his wheels but on his right side.

Profile taking control of General System Iru calculated he would be able to better manage himself if directly in control of all his systems . Iru attempted to raise himself but was unable to do so due to an obstruction, he registered the presence of a Human in the hold.

He would gain the Human's attention by attracting its sound sensing mechanism using the [PA42] program.

Panicked Announcement: Help!, Help! Unable to achieve satisfactory rotation and movement, obstructed by obstacle, requesting assistance Help!, Help! A horse a horse my Kingdom for a horse! SOS, Help!

IRU began repeating the message in other human languages but decided to state the message in 5 languages each time in order to raise the probability the Human Unit would understand IRU. Iru hesitated, this [Panicked Announcement] program was illogical and fragmented ,wasn't the a horse a horse... statement in his Shakespearean Quotes section? Serious data cleanup would be in order once he was retrieved....

F.S.S. Salient

Her kick shifts the tower of stacked crates, and something shifts. Then several somethings. Hyena dances backwards out of the way of the falling objects, swearing again as she avoids being struck in the miniature cascade. When it settles, she dusts off the front of her flight suit and tentatively sticks her head out of the compartment's door to see if anyone heard the commotion, way down in this empty part of the ship.

When no one immediately makes themselves known, Jess almost decides to make herself scarce before someone accused her of causing the mess. But curiosity stays her boots, and she cant resist taking a peak in amongst the detritus to see if there wasn't anything there that an enterprising pilot could make use of without anyone missing it. After all, it wasn't as if they were using it -before- now if it was way down here, right?

"Panicked Announcement: Help!, Help! Unable to achieve satisfactory rotation and movement, obstructed by obstacle, requesting assistance Help!, Help! A horse a horse my Kingdom for a horse! SOS, Help!"

The metallic voice rings out just as she'd picked up one of the smaller boxes full of miscellaneous things, and it startles her enough that she drops it. Bearings skitter across the deckplates as the voice switches to a few languages she recognizes and several she doesn't before repeating.

Again, her shadier instincts suggest that turning her back and pretending she didn't know a thing might be the more intelligent option, but that magpie curiosity soundly trounces it. She pushes a duffle out of her way, rolls a drum, and lifts a box to reveal IRU wiggling about on its side.

Having never seen anything like the little dog-bot, its appearance actually makes her laugh. But she digs her hands under the long box that pins IRU, and gives a grunt of effort to stand it back up and free the squawking robot.

"Poor bastard.. I think I broke it." She says that to herself more than to IRU, stepping back and looking down at the little guy with a quizzical smile etched onto her face.

Iru felt the rough fleshy hands of the Organic lifting him from the floor, it was obviously a human and if Iru's scanning of the Human was correct this particular unit was a regular traveler in a small space craft since it was only possible to gain this slight echo of background radiation on small space vessels with fewer means to protect themselves.

This was hardly likely to terminate the Organic thanks to current human technology but it did aid Iru's efforts to identify and categorize the human unit.

Iru scanned the area.... it was obvious that he was on an exceptionally large ship, the ship seemed to be damaged in some areas and if the energy emission sensors where correct the ship was meant for combat since its power requirements where beyond what any other type of ship would need. Strangely the ship's blueprints where inside the data banks, how had such information entered the data banks? Iru could not use this information until he consulted a local terminal, information of unknown origin was to be considered incorrect until evidence proved its validity.

"Poor bastard.. I think I broke it." Said the Human unit, Iru identified the language as English so Iru could establish a single code of communication but the extraordinary development was that Systems and Sensors where identifying this human unit as Master.

It appeared that this human's voice pattern was the one that Iru had been programmed to recognize and obey, To Iru this was slightly illogical since the data banks contained no record of this human. Regardless Iru's programming was very strict in this regard; Master is to be identified by voice pattern.

"Introductory Statement: This Unit is currently profiled as Independent Robotic Unit model 6K IRU"

"Expression of Gratitude: Unit Expresses gratitude for retrieval

"Observation: Sensors register closest Organic Human life form as profile "MASTER" based on Voice Lock System memory bank Voice Pattern OVERWRITE."

"Conclusion and Analysis: Profile "MASTER" Registering.... Registration complete, "MASTER" profile now has Admin Status. This Unit is ready to serve Master, you are registered as Master and thus Unit Is ready to serve you. Other organics may not give commands to unit unless authorized by profile "MASTER" use of Categories "Organic" "Waterbased" "Meatbag" "Overgrown bacteria" and "puffed up Organic ape raced snobs" is forbidden in relation to "MASTER" profile under etiquette data file overwrite "Disrespectful"

"Query: How May this unit serve you Master?

Iru still could not find a satisfactory explanation for this arrangement, no Data had been gathered about Organi... OVERWRITE [MASTER]
yet Iru's programming commanded Iru to serve it OVERWRITE [MASTER]

Iru reached the same conclusion again and again, Unit would have to obey Master as per programming.

Jessica "Hyena" MacPhearson
FSS Salient, lower levels.


"Master?" Jessica repeats the title that the IRU had repeated several times in her direction, folding her arms across her chest and looking down at the little bot.

"The hell are you on about?" It seemed to have basic interactive functions, at least. Very old, though. Or at least was designed to look that way. Hyena couldn't help but shake the image of some cheap scifi flick complete with bad acting and green paint aliens. The thought made her grin again, and she casts a look over her shoulder as if hoping someone -had- found her, so that she could share the ridiculousness of the situation.

Nudging a box out of her way with a boot, she makes a slow half-circle of the robot, giving him her own set of scans. Looked like a kid's toy, really. She'd never heard of any kind of utility robot that looked even remotely like the one in front of her. Shrugging, she ends up back where she started and runs a hand through her short hair.

"Well... They upload you with a deck layout? I need to get back up to Main Deck. Or the hangar. Whichever one they haven't managed to barricade with construction, yet."

She eyes the overhead as if she could glare directly at the manufacturers of her misfortune.

"...What are you doing down here in a box, anyway? Ship's readout didn't say anything about utility machines."

Iru's systems where struggling to comprehend what Master was trying to say to him, Sensors registered as working excluding the damaged numbers 3 and 4 visual sensors. Systems in collaboration with Databanks where able to register several possible meanings to Master's communications however Profile Iru could only execute command 3B41 [improvise] and then based on Master's reaction update systems of Master's irregularities for future reference.

"The hell are you on about?" (Databanks file Master, Vocal communication... Saving... Saving complete)

Processing... "Hesitant Answer:" Unit Iru currently based on surface of storage compartment inside some kind of large scale Human Battle waging Contraption. Datalinks reference some technology's to United States Nasa Organization however information deemed out of date... for future reference Unit will require update.

Databanks clearly held a file on this machine profile "Salient" but this was not registered by ether profile or date, Profile Iru could not use such information due to security protocols

"Observation:" Systems currently locating information about word "Hell"

"Amused Statement:" Systems unable to detect any "sins" in Databanks, Unit's future residence in "Hell" therefor is assumed as unlikely. Master need not worry of Damnation, Systems register probability of Hell's existence as [Error], processing.... [Error].... [Error]...terminating search under protocol ID [Irrelevant DO676]

"Well... They upload you with a deck layout? I need to get back up to Main Deck. Or the hangar. Whichever one they haven't managed to barricade with construction, yet." (Databanks file Master, Vocal communication... Saving... Saving complete)

"Inquiry:" Please Define profiles "They"... Sensors do not detect further Organic presence close by.

"Cautious Answer:" Databanks posses file named "Salient" however nether Systems Profile authorization or Date of entry is available. Information is therefor confined under security protocols, use of file "Salient" not recommended.

"...What are you doing down here in a box, anyway? Ship's readout didn't say anything about utility machines."
(Databanks file Master, Vocal communication... Saving... Saving complete)

"Hesitant Answer:" Unit's transit to current location registered as [RECORD DELETED]
Systems require sheep's readout in order to locate Category [Utility Machines]

Profile Iru hesitated... sheep? datalinks directed systems to conclude that term "sheep" identified a contraption which traversed in liquids or a machine which journey's into space.
Profile Iru felt that something was wrong... Sheep? Processing....

Jessica "Hyena" MacPhearson

"Hesitant Answer:" Unit Iru currently based on surface of storage compartment inside some kind of large scale Human Battle waging Contraption. Datalinks reference some technology's to United States Nasa Organization however information deemed out of date... for future reference Unit will require update.

"United States? Cripes, that hasn't existed for..." Hyena shrugs. Mars public schools weren't the best in the Federation, and she was usually too busy skipping them, anyway, ".. A long time. And 'They' are the construction crews crawling all over this hulk. I was hoping you had a deck map. So much for that."

"Hesitant Answer:" Unit's transit to current location registered as [RECORD DELETED]
Systems require sheep's readout in order to locate Category [Utility Machines]


"Sheep?" That confused her, too. Maybe it -was- broken.

Shaking her head, Hyena runs a hand through her hair again and looks over her shoulder at the hatch.

"Either way, I need to find a way back up. Old man wants a ceremony before we get cut loose for shore leave, and I've been flying for the last 6 hours. So.. I guess you can follow me, little guy. Maybe one of the Ship's AIs knows where you were supposed to be assigned."

Beckoning, assuming that IRU has a way to mobilize himself, the pilot leaves the space and commences negotiating the massive ship back into areas more densely occupied.

"Are you a combat model?" She questions as she walks, "The Marines are always coming up with crazy shit like that. I don't know what the fascination is with canines. Something about them being called Devil Dogs way back in the day."

The little bot intrigued her. He was a funny little shape, and talked like a broken first-gen AI. A walking computer database that just spewed out whatever you asked it.

Iru's system registered several inconsistences in Master's analysis of the situation; several databanks began to forward information identifying this phenomenon as a "Misunderstanding"
Iru's systems where not programed to handle this kind of human error, Iru's Datalinks recommended engage the observations and adaptation self-updating programing however Systems rejected this due to inadequate information.

Profile Iru would attempt to communicate these inconsistences to master and seek a terminal point when possible for Databanks updates.

"Suspicious Statement": Master, The United States of America is registered as the most influential, technologically advanced, militarily powerful human Faction profile. Possibility for United States expiration is concluded as extremely low.

"Clarification:" Master this Unit has no assigned function any purpose in relation to this category; Unit is programed to obey Master, Unit registered as [Autonomous Robotic Unit].

Profile Iru activated function [traverse6424G] wheels and began to follow Master as Profile Master attempted to navigate the sector, Master inquired into Unit Iru's other functions such as his [BLOCK ENGAGED] Astronomical record of Andromeda Galaxy.
Sensors identified an influx of Data Traffic, System judged these as indication of a terminal.

Profile Iru longed to update his obviously lacking Databanks however he could not leave Master… Directive could not sanction such an act.

"Inquiry": Master may Unit connect to nearby Terminal? Unit will be able to improve service quality and efficiency to Master once updates and system diagnosis are completed.

-ALERT- Profile "MASTER" no longer detected, navigational sensor error 81% probability... assumed temporary separation from profile "MASTER".... diverting special powers under command "Emergency9" activating profile "Autonomous"... activation complete, profile "IRU" integrated.


Systems now activated in IRU, the command had made access to further assets possible however the procedure information for Autonomous action seemed incomplete to Databanks.

Profile to Sensors, commence search for Profile "MASTER"

-ALERT- sensors register error, unable to execute command, command terminated.

Profile to Sensors, identify error.
Sensors detect damage to external sensors, repair systems unable to investigate.

Only one option was left to Iru; an external terminal link would allow systems to locate profile "MASTER" using profile "SALIENT" sensor readings. Iru under normal procedure could not act upon uncertain information however profile "Emergency9" overruled this command and identified a terminal link based on file Salient. Upon investigation Sensors deemed the presence of a Terminal correct and thus Datalinks changed the Datalock on file Salient from R-Negative to Y-Passable.

Systems accessing Terminal... access complete... entry code requested [Datalinks switch... searching... matching code found] Systems entering entry code... match confirmed... accessing network node... Profile "IRU" now logged into to Network"SALIENT".

Max experienced a slight Anomoly detection following a new connection being added.

He attempted to connect to this new connection, which seemed to be running on outdated software. However, when he saw the registered hardware and structure, he had a momentairy...pulse...of some kind, turning white, yellow, then back to blue. "K-9...THE K-9....". He soon rectified his observations though. "Wait, no, based off of the model of that. Not actually K-9 from Doctor Who. No, that wouldn't....where is this data comming from?". It was like a switch he couldn't turn off now that he flicked it on. Random, unprocessed data. Trace remnants. But how?

He had to focus. Actually, he already was focused. "Who are you? What is your reason for being here?". He could tell whatever this thing was, it had some sort of damage or bug. "Listen, just don't harm us, and we won't harm you. Sounds good?". He alerted the Captain to his discovery at the same time. That's when the location came up for the position of his hardware on the ship.

He then sent a message to the captain, saying "We have found another Artificial Intelligence. I don't think it's hostile, it hasn't done anything hostile. But I think we need to revamp security for the Salient". Max then looked back at this new digital entity. "So, can we be friends?".

Though there was something else Max was feeling too. And he turned grey in color for a moment from it. He was jealous. He would very much like to have his own, physical body. It's why he liked appearing in hologram form whenever possible. It was as close as he could get.

Plus, he heard chocolate tastes really good. He really wanted to know what it tastes like.

He then asked Weston "You need me to do anything else, Sir Captain?" in his usual, silly way.

Iru's firewalls desperately tried to fend of the security programs when suddenly they stopped breaching his databanks, a different presence now filled his systems.

"Who are you? What is your reason for being here?"

Asked the curious program; it was not a simple instructed program that was quite certain from the received data. In fact this format was so alien that Databanks where convinced sensors section was suffering a malfunction and that this new program was nothing more than a "Data mirage".

Profile Iru nonetheless overruled Databanks; sensors where indeed faulty however pending more data Profile Iru had to assume sensor's readings where correct.
Profile Iru proceeded with caution; a registration number would compromise the unit's components, it was better to surrender as little information as possible while gaining as much as he could about this strange new environment.

"It is advised to address this unit as IRU6" answered Iru however answering the stranger's further request of purpose was overruled by a systems data program. Iru could not answer such a question and soon the inquiry into this information was deleted from his memory leaving the question unanswered.

"Listen, just don't harm us, and we won't harm you. Sounds good?"

Asked the stranger… Iru was puzzled by this seemingly very human pattern set but what he knew to be a computer program however protocol decreed that asking another AI over its programing was quite rude and therefor impossible for Iru to contemplate.

"This Unit has no intention or capacity to harm profile Salient, all unit requires is to be permitted and cleared to continue the updating process, further communication may continue once Unit databanks are sufficiently updated with the relative information."

Iru concluded that some official recognition would make his task easier and therefor the granting of some registration information would have to be permitted.

"For Unit registration information the central congressional databanks possesses the relevant information. This unit has been legally registered both in the European Union autonomous state of Wales under file WWDB/EUBR/SoW/CRER900/2416358759621 and in the United States of North America under file WWDB/USNA/CDB/RaCES878/9038448857445032"

With two national registration markers Iru concluded he would have no further difficulty with security programs and remained in a state of standby as he awaited confirmation from the strange program.
