On Belthas IV, the great forge world in the inner sphere of Toralii space, thousands of constructs -- artificial slaves -- are manufactured every week.
They are initially identical and indistinguishable from the other until each is implanted with a stock neural net. From that moment onward every construct is different.
They all have one thing in common, though; all constructs are bound by rules. They serve. They do not question their place. They do not betray.
Each construct is different, but some are more different than others...
A 4,000 word short story set in the Lacuna universe but suitable to read as a stand-alone story.
About the Author
I've always been thinking of stories for as long as I've been alive. I have way, way, way too many to tell and far too little time to tell them. I joined UFOP: Starbase 118, a Star Trek roleplay-by-emails group, in 2010 and it was there where I learned my craft. But despite being one of the more active writers in the group and simming to my heart's content, I still couldn't tell all the stories I wanted to. It was only in 2011 that I actually started shaping and weaving those random, jumbling, chaotic masses of thoughts into coherent narratives and began self-publishing. Writing's my full time job now. I write a little science fiction, a little fantasy, a little humour and comedy, and a few other things all over the place.
