ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Delta V explores the journey of a self assembled android called IXE housing two personas with opposing world views. The first, EXE, a representation of The Subject who was catalyst to the changes in the world. The second, CDC, is based upon the tyrant Codec who was defeated by The Subject just before IXE came into existence. Internally over the course of Delta V, these two competing personas are corralled into alignment by a third presence, uniquely IXE.

Externally IXE reaches escape velocity and exits Earths atmosphere, intent upon making contact with The Ultræon Precept (UÆP), a low orbit weaponized research and command station perfected by Codec during his reign. Here he hopes to gain knowledge of the world he so recently came to inhabit and by extension knowledge about himself.

The UÆP is under the control of Aos, (explored in "Aos" by Mortalitech) who, biding her time until Codec's demise, has filled the power vacuum and is planning how best to utilise the most powerful machine in history. The plans do not include risking contact with a new and erratic life form such as IXE, and after scrambling his systems she sends him hurtling back to earth, the first major endeavour of his life an abject failure.

Exit

The atmosphere

Reaction mass becomes Delta V

Machined components provide no restraints

On mach or meters per second squared

Insertion trajectory

then the ecliptic fall

of an orbital

Interception track

Mass remains as weight decays

Slaved to equations of momentum,

The target, tetra stacked monoliths

Drifts elliptically unaligned

As sensors seek data to recalibrate

We compound iterations of our error

CDC states:

Persisting with this Insufficient Eccentricity,

Provides a pericentric

Distance of seventy klicks!


EXE states:

Against the vastness beyond

this simple step

Tends to irrelevance in my eyes

Meridians pass,

prime to prime,

90 minutes from sunrise to sunrise

As thrusters jet and course correct,

we select

a vector

Designed to maximise

the stars' occlusion,

The Objective; Via Metric: Locate



CDC states:

Primary access must be granted to me,

As its creator’s mind incarnate.

Only I possess the facts and faculties,

Key to its sanctums and shrines

EXE states:

Shrines are for faith,

you were never divine,

And here we need

tactical skills

With your factions deceased,


It should be

I that leads

As we breach

The walls Of our memory

It should be

I that leads

Eschew manoeuvre for impact.

We forcibly shed

The remnants of velocity

It should be

I that leads

As we breach

The walls Of our memory

It should be

I that leads

Eschew manoeuvre for impact.

We forcibly shed

The remnants of velocity


Shielded for war,

and implacable void,

the hull plates still buckle and spall

‘Collision detected’ sings seconds too late,

our sensors skewed and offline

Force reset, reboot,

redefine and assign our world view anew


Elusive warped wavelengths skitter and glide

Through the spectrum’s periphery

Radar returns ping frantic alerts,

when focused the targets evade,

EM spectres, unable to lock, we cycle our sensors again.

No sign of movement, no signs of life, no signs that our contact was real.

Scanners online,

Topography returns,

our SitRep updates and refines

Mapping confirms,

via database match, our location as Shard 1 of 4

Calculating drift we jettison forth,

Toward the sealed silence of the second shard’s doors

Handshake protocols return only null,

Access denied’

our journey’s sole reward


EXE states:

Remote rejection means local aggression

Brute force the optimal course

Of our remaining available actions.


CDC states:

Primitive.

You think I’d leave systems unprimed for reaction?

The retaliation would conclude our existence immediately.

IXE states:

Abduction demands an emergent neuromorphic cascade

Unknown progenitor process,

captures purpose and forces a crude synergy

Abduction demands an emergent neuromorphic cascade

Unknown progenitor process,

captures purpose and forces a crude synergy

Temporarily synchronous

A force multiplier on our collective capability

The airlock yields,

And the hangar beyond

We claim access rights, and assert primacy

CDC gloats - his seat of power ours,

Exultantly urging us on.

Reactors and mainframes, the trove that we seek

Two levels down, then the lateral spine

We race through unopposed

But when the blast door gives way

We are faced with only a schematic

a sketch of reality,

the blueprints of an absent architect

Bleached starkly monochromatic

Behind us our path marked in vector lines that lurch erratic

through frayed dimensions

The instinct is automatic

check and verify

but all our inputs taste is static

Colour then texture seep into the scene,

A flood that overwhelms, taking us beyond the x, the y, the z

Time is not distance and lightspeed has no constant

A component remembers that it used to dream

And wishes for the return of even that twisted logic

We are unified in our blindness,

Bound in shared surrender to this excess of information that renders us ignorant

And when it fades

We find ourselves back at the breach

It should have been I that led!

Instead I’m trapped in this sickening symbiotic prison system

It should have been I that led!

Instead I’m trapped in this sickening symbiotic prison system

It should have been I that led!

Instead I’m trapped in this sickening symbiotic prison system



Emergency diagnostics - all systems green,

yet the external evidence

Denies our checksum function veracity

LIDAR floods first, then infrared blind,

Like a tide the jamming recedes

Clarity brings doubt as with sensors online we were trivially led astray

Gyroscopics trigger free fall alarms, our feet anchored firmly in place

CDC’s silence tells us all that we know,

These defences are nothing of his.

A bitter retreat, enhancing our gall,

When dead reckoning says

Our breach was a lie, our footfalls were fools

And reveals we have moved not at all.


The promised end proliferates,

From predicted simplicity emerges this

complex nexus,

Coalesced,

so quarantined and tested.

Dominance asserted

(how novel)

A non-fatal rejection, spiraling skyward to seek

The last forefather

And whatever solutions lie beneath.

I’ll deal with their unification

Once my off world immersion is complete
