The Story of Candy Apple - Android
Page 17

   Thomas Roth stood looking out his office window at the city below. “You greased all the right wheels?” he asked the man standing behind him.
   “Yes,” John Hobson head of Cybertron Robotics security replied. “The judge cost us the most. The local police cooperated with us up to a point, but the story still leaked to the press, but by then everyone was in agreement that Candy’s owner’s death was a tragic accident caused by the extreme abuse of his android. It has stirred up the android rights movement in the area.”
   “I’m not concerned with, nor do I care about android rights,” Thomas said. “All I am worried about is that the public perception of our androids is that they are a product they can trust with their lives.”
   “Then I’d say we are safe on that account,” John replied. “I leaked part of the video to the press. Right now, public sentiment is on the side of the android.”
   “What about her lawyer?”
   “We can’t touch him; he’s too famous. Trying to buy him off is out of the question too.”
   “Then we are in for a legal battle,” Thomas said.
   “It would seem so,” John said. “But, they are still going to have to turn her over to us while they make their appeals.”
   “Good. Then when we get a hold of her I want her brain scanned in detail,” Thomas said. “I want whatever we did to Candy in the first place that made her so special to become a part of every personal companion android we make from now on. Our technician only managed to get a limited clone of her mind, and we need a full map of her brain. After that, they can have her back for all I care.”

Candy's Story

I suppose that I should tell you a few things about myself before I tell you my story. First, the body I have now is not the body I started out with. My friend Iris here is a Candy Personal Companion Model. I was once just like her. In fact, I was the first, and the entire model series was named after me.

Android Rights

Humans bury their beloved pets, shedding many tears. But, after years of unfailing faithful service you would think we should come to a better end than just being stuffed in some dumpster with the rest of the trash. You would think that at least we would deserve a place next to the family pet, recycled or something..., anything, to show some respect for our years of devoted service.

More Stuff

Candy's story continues as one of several stories that intersect with the story about the Galactic Enterprise.

Intertwined with the Galactic Enterprise's story is the story about the Starfighters, those great defenders of Earth. There are other tales too. To the right and below are links where more stories and other stuff may be found.
