SCHAR: Blue Shield Alliance

Crew Bot B-177.e, LOG3 – 2996

Airman Valgard is quite the beast. I’m sure I don’t want him escorting anymore mission, since he’s what the people call “batty.” Instead of manually entering the ordeal, I’ll just download my internal log.

Memory log 514: “On course to Shield Generator 0, orbiting Earth. Tethered to freighter 3, self unit B-177.e, secondary D-366.i, R-088.o, and T-154.k shield integrity 100% Radar clear, 4432 clicks from target.

I guess even with my emotions chip, my memories are still pretty dull. That is what happened, from the unbiased memory of a poor, heartless robot. It’s also why Airman Valgard is facing a bit of trouble, since he got most of his squad killed.

The other news that comes from this is Admiral Alvarez’s text monitor. He felt it wasn’t quite adequate when disciplining Airman Valgard, so he has had me upgraded with a voice he finds suitable. His text monitor then syncs with my vocal unit, and he can talk through me. It’s a huge honor to be used in this way, and I am glad to never see the vastness of space in the first person again.

Mission success, reward initiated.
