I have a new file.
When I insert the file into the Redemption’s computer the words ‘Alpha Orders’ come up on the console.
The names of my crew roll before me. I see their faces. I know everything about their development, skills and roles. I know what their enhancements have done to them. I know what they can do.
There are four of them on the Bridge with me.
I remember their names.
Beta – Subject Lara. She is tall and slim. Her hair is blonde but like all of our hair it’s cut shorter, as short as mine.
Gamma – Subject Shen. He’s stocky and strong. He’s Chinese but when he speaks I understand every word he says. Language doesn’t matter anymore when you’ve a core system deep within your brain.
Delta – Subject Esteban. When I look at Esteban I feel like I know him. There’s some subconscious memory aching to release itself. He has green eyes. For a moment I wonder if it’s some echo of one of my brothers I’m seeing. My file told me I had four brothers, all of them older. I know Esteban isn’t my brother.
