  • EBN: The Egg Has Been Recovered



    Jermaine Johansson: “You’re watching Entropia Breaking News. I’m your host, Jermaine Johansson.
    Today’s top story: The Egg has been recovered and moved to a classified safe location. It is expected to hatch very soon.
    CJ Weave joins us from the classified location. CJ?”

    CJ Weave: “Thanks, Jermaine. I am at a heavily guarded CDF black site, where the Egg has just arrived from the scene of the battle with the RX units. I will, once again, be keeping you updated until the Egg has hatched.
    I am joined by Xenobiologist Charles Marvin’s assistant, Dr Wilson, and CDF Ground Forces Commander de Souza. Dr Wilson, what can you tell us? Is the Egg alright?”

    Dr Wilson: “The Egg has just been put into the new incubator that was built with the parts collected by colonists. All its vital signs are normal and it does not appear to have been tampered with. Tiny cracks are already starting to appear in the shell, and from what we can tell they were not caused by external trauma.”

    CJ Weave: “So when can we expect it to hatch? What can we expect to come out of the Egg?”

    Dr Wilson: “It could be days, or just hours. Any time now. Whatever comes out, the Egg hatching will be the dawn of a new era on Calypso, Dr. Marvin assures us.”

    CJ Weave: “General, as the person responsible for the “rescue operation” of the Egg, this must be a thrilling moment for you. How does it feel to have played such a pivotal part in what will be “the dawn of a new era on Calypso?”

    Brigadier General de Souza: “Are you serious? Just hatch the damn thing so my men can stop babysitting and get back to fighting the invasion.”

    Dr Wilson: “Commander, you don’t understand-”

    Brigadier General de Souza: “No, doctor, YOU don’t underst-”

    Xenobiologist Charles Marvin: “I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY! General, the work done in here, by my team, outweighs all that you and your soldiers are doing out on the surface. The robots invaded to get the Egg. The RX violated the truce to get the Egg. There is only one way we can end this invasion - by hatching the Egg. And when it does, it will be absolutely marvellous.”

    Brigadier General de Souza: “By that logic, we might as well destroy the Egg and be done with it.”

    Charles Marvin: “Commander! Need I call the Governor again?”

    Brigadier General de Souza: “Listen, you-”

    CJ Weave: “Speaking of the RX, commander: some have voiced concerns that going after all RX because of the actions of a few is only going to open up a new conflict for no good reason.”

    Brigadier General de Souza: “If we see a robot, do we ask it if it personally has killed Calypsians before we destroy it? No. How is destroying an RX any different from destroying a robot?”

    CJ Weave: “What about those who say that these RX might not even be the same RX that have coexisted peacefully with us here on Calypso?”

    Brigadier General de Souza: “That is a lie. A dangerous rumour that you should not be perpetuating. Look - The RX have murdered CDF personnel. Stolen the property of Calypsians. Plotted with the robots against us. The events of the last few weeks show just how vulnerable we are to attacks from the RX. None of us will be safe until all RX on Calypso are dealt with - and they will be dealt with.”

    CJ Weave: “Very well. Thank you, commander.”

    Jermain Johansson: “...
    Hrm. Alright, thrilling stuff. We’re going to take a short break for some messages from our sponsor, the Chikara corporation - but be sure to stay tuned for the conclusion of this mystery several years in the making. You don’t want to miss this “dawn of a new era”.”
