A Strange Code

Postby SciGuy303 » Sun Aug 30, 2015 3:03 am

P.S: This was heavily inspired by the Engi Conspiracy.

[Transmission start]
Two days ago I flew my heavily modified Kestrel class cruiser into Lanius space. There I overheard a conversation between several Lanius cruisers. They were speaking in a language that I couldn't comprehend. But then, I received a transmission from somewhere. It read: 171146143040141154163141156163040172147162040152172154154151170166142056. I am currently working on decoding the message, but progress has been slow. I'll update when I'm done.

I do random stuff and surf on the fourms. That's about it.

An AI ship with the IFF reading "Collossatron" has already decoded it for you.

The message reads:

"That's Numberwang!"

Even though the AI may be right, I can't trust it just yet. I need to keep going.

this is Strike Cruiser Retribution on all freqencies. we have just exited warp space. And we are under attack by a lanius Dreadknot. Literaly its a knot. Anyways it is sending out a message constantly it goes
0101010101010100101010101010100101010101001010101010010101010011011111101. Our engi crewman Cyrus says its a message from the supposed "lords of everything" Lanius. It goes surrender to the lanius and your death will be quick or you will perish by the oxygen draining laser/breach beam. We can hold out but please send support

Ok, I escaped and I am hiding now. I think that Collosatron AI is insane.

Incoming transmission:

Attention all ships! The AI known as Collossatron has gone rogue! If you see the AI in your sector, do not engage. He will determine you to not be "Numberwang" and disintegrate you.
The following protocol must be established in order to protect your lives and the integrity of your ship:

1) Download the AIDISABLEMEME picture to your ship's databanks
2) Send AIDISABLEMEME to your ship's hologram projectors
3) Wait for Collossatron to view AIDISABLEMEME.
3) Once Collossatron is disabled, you...

Transmission interrupted

Incoming transmission:
THAT IS NOT NUMBERWANG! Destroy all that is not Numberwang!
