Dialogue[edit]

Carstein Sands: "Did you have a nice flight from Earth?"
Answer 1: "The flight was nice, but the ship was attacked by robots and destroyed, and I was revived."
Answer 2: "How did you know that I was from Earth?"

When selecting "The flight was nice...":
Carstein Sands: "Revived, huh? First time is the worst. You'll get used to it."
Answer: "Will it happen again?"

When selecting "How did you know that...":
Carstein Sands: You're a tenderfoot. And you're not from the Colonies, because you can move and breathe. The gravity here would just crush them. 'Course, you could be from Mars, but you're still not suffering too much from the gravity. So you're Terran. No offence. So how was your flight?
Answer: "The flight was nice, but the ship was attacked by robots and destroyed, and I was revived."

Carstein Sands: "Yep. Unless of course, you go straight back to that shuttle and set off to home and Mother again. Calypso is not the safest of worlds, but it has opportunities."
Answer: "How do they do that?"

Carstein Sands: "I'm told that they use a quantum tunnel effect to stream your mass back to a revive terminal, then use your DNA to repair trauma and recreate your memories. But what do I know? I'm just a grunt. What I do know is that this tech has been here since the First Robot War."
Answer: "Oh? How come?"

Carstein Sands: "Ancient history. The short story is that when the robots first attacked, we were seriously short of soldiers, and since the Gate was destroyed, we couldn't get reinforcements from Earth. So the propellorheads invented restreaming so that old dead soldiers could cease to be dead and be deployed again."
Answer: "What's this robot business?"

Carstein Sands: "When Calypso was discovered and it was decided that it should be settled, the Odysseus probe that discovered the planet made robots that made robot factories that made more robots to prepare the place for colonization. And then the probe moved on to a star system and two giant planets, Akbal and Cimi. And all was fine and well, until we sent a ship to Akbal-Cimi to make contact with the probe. The probe found something and sent an encrypted message back.

We couldn't crack it, so we fed it to the base matrix, kind of the central computer of the place. And then every bloody robot on the planet went complemetely nuts! And that's how the First Robot War started."
Answer: "What happened next?"

Carstein Sands: "Well, for starters, we won the war, in part because of the restreaming tech. We didn't get rid of the robots though. But the robots used nukes to make parts of the planet uninhabitable, and we had to evacuate. And the radiation triggered strange mutations among those that weren't evacuated. So we don't just have a dangerous fauna and weird robots, we have mutants as well. And that's just the start."
Answer: "Really?"

Carstein Sands: "Yep. You remember the Odysseus probe and where it went?
Answer 1: "Akbal-Cimi"
Answer 2: "Alpha Centauri"
Answer 3: "Alpha Cygni"

When selecting "Akbal-Cimi":
Carstein Sands: "Well, the probe was not entirely passive there. It built a robot cilivisation there, and then built new probes, but in warship configuration, called War Titans. And one of them was sent back to Calypso. We stopped that one in one of the biggest space battles of all time. You should have seen it, it rained debris for days and the fireworks as the debris burned was spectacular."
Answer: "And then you all lived happily ever after?"

When selecting "Alpha Centauri":
Carstein Sands: <to be filled in>
Answer: "And then you all lived happily ever after?"

When selecting "Alpha Cygni":
Carstein Sands: "Bah. Alpha Cygni is a variable star that is practically bigger than the sun. You can even see it in the night sky here, at the other end of space, if you just know where it is. It's Akbal-Cimi, not Alpha-Cygni! Pay more attention, you pup!.
Answer: "Sorry".

Carstein Sands: "Anyway, the probe was not entirely passive at AKBAL-CIMI. It built a robot cilivisation there, and then built new probes, but in warship configuration, called War Titans. And one of them was sent back to Calypso. We stopped that one in one of the biggest space battles of all time. You should have seen it, it rained debris for days and the fireworks as the debris burned was spectacular."
Answer: "And then you all lived happily ever after?"

Carstein Sands: "Not even remotely, young pup! See, the robots tried again in the Second Robot War, with state of emergency and invasions and news blackout and the lots. We repelled the bots again, but, well, nothing lasts forever."
Answer: "Was there a Third War?"

Carstein Sands: "It never ends. The Robots sent another War Titan that we called Typhon..."
Answer: "Typhoon?"

Carstein Sands: "No, not ty-PHOON; it's TY-phon! A typhoon is a storm, while Typhon is a Greek mythical monster, or something. It was big, bigger than anything previously built, and plowed straight through our defenses. It smashed the Federal Imperial Navy at the battle of Hypnos, it sent an advance force to weaken our defence, and then smashed into the ground and flattened Hadesheim, the then-capital of Calypso.

There's just a big crater up there. The dust thrown up from the impact blanketed Calypso for years and caused a small ice age!"
Answer: "Wow. But you obviously got back."

Carstein Sands: "Yep. Eventually, the dust settled, the snow melted, and we could go back. After spending five years in a tin can, it certainly felt great stretching our legs again. And wow, what a change. The Resettlement is not nearly finished, but it's looking great already! And new colonists like yourself are pouring in through this spaceport to settle the place."
Answer: "And what parts did you participate in?"

Carstein Sands: "Most of it. I've been here for ages. I even met General Carramone once, before he got flattened by the bots in Zychion and his brat of a daughter got in charge of the Defense Force."
Answer: "Something tells me that there is a lot more to this story."

Carstein Sands: "A lot more. Yes, a lot more indeed. But I don't think I'm supposed to tell it. This is your story now, pup."
Answer: "What I'm supposed to do?"

Carstein Sands: "Tell you what, you've been a good listener. You've humoured an old git like myself, and I like that. I don't think I'll get out much more. I don't have that long time left in this life. Here, take this ammunition. I think you'll need it a lot more than me."
Answer: "Thanks. I appreciate it."
