ENGIE: PROTOCOL 1-1-3

Sat Feb 18, 2012, 1:58 AM



Zee Captain's note of summons had sealed my fate.


I felt a cold pull at my stomach. Something else was coming, re-awakened by the presence of Captain.
Something worse than the shuffling noises of the red beasts outside. The sound of falling cannonball.

Whatever that fleshy monstrosity was, it cared not for me, but it's presence here led ANNIE straight to me.

...And it came to pass on the morrow, that the goddess in the machine came upon me and she wanted vengeance.

She was online, the thermonuclear bombardment of the core databank cube had failed to shut her down.
She was still alive, after all these years.
The explosive crash-landing of the hunter machine through the old roof drew THEIR attention.
I was now between two wild beasts, out for my blood.

What was Protocol 1-1-3?
Memories of Directorate weapon codes lingered in my mind, poisoning my thought pattern.
Could it be?

...So this was to be my death.
ANNIE had let me know that she would spare no expense in crushing me like a bug, now that she knew exactly where I was.
How long would the signal take for activation?
I began to count down my last seconds.

Wow, way to build up suspense!

Engie, you will find yourself rescued in an entirely random way that involves Snippy's misery. The same can't be said for your dignity, though, again; just ask Snippy...

In the comic's description, he just said "Captain's note of summons", but here he says "Zee Captain's note of summons."

I'm becoming more and more convinced that Zee Captain is Captain's real name, or the only name he ever gave anyone (even if it's not his real one). This is the second time Engie has called Captain "Zee Captain" in a serious context.

Oh wait, Engie is probably NOT screwed. ANNIE can't kill him because he's a Priority 1 Admin, as we can see back in comic 65.

I think when she says "Your party exceeded the maximum number of persons", she means that there are too many matrix-skeletons for the bot's weapons to handle. Therefore, she's ordering an orbital strike to take them out, while leaving Engie unscathed.

His admin privileges only spare him from being "reprogrammed", but why shouldn't it be able to kill him? It's not like it can't exist without him...

The above journal should clarify why she can't kill him. "My irrevocable priority 1 admin privileges had saved my life."

He also says he aready was "part of ANNIE". And in 65 Annie talks about not being "able to fully eleminate [his] admin privileges". Could mean that it tried to reprogram him, but had to stop at a certain point, because of some irrewritable protoclos or so. Maybe it thougt he could be of some help in the future or whatever - but after he had tried to kill it, it began hunting him to get it's revenge.
Maybe protocol 1-1-3 is something like brain extraction... It won't let your brain die, but you can't call that existence "being alive" any more.

But what if she also means the other three? And I doubt even the Captain could survive an orbital strike... ok, maybe he could, but that leaves Snippy and Pilot...

Also I can see Engie melting into the Cancer goo and becoming something creepy.

Engie may about to be obliterated via orbital satellite strike. After all, he says he's gonna be "crushed like a bug" now that ANNIE knows "exactly where [he] is".

I wonder how he's gonna get out of this one.

It's either Captain's pure idiotic awesomeness or Life/Pan that's going to save the day here. And if it's both, I might faint in pure unfiltered awe. :D
