S1E14: Black Knight
Sol System: Black Cube.
Journal Entry #23:
I, Enlil, the almighty, am now established in the infamous Black Cube, the ultimate war vessel. A testament to the Anunna people and myself. My power and influence now extend far beyond what puny Enki could ever hope to achieve… and in half the time he had so far.
Recently, I got the reports from Alalu. I sent him to infiltrate Enki’s team and report back to me on a regular basis. I was not surprised to hear that Enki is failing in his mission to mine and strip the primitive planet of its valuable gold. If it were me in charge, the planet would have already been stripped of all its resources by now, having no one to defend it at all.
Enki may be my brother, but I will not let familial ties get in the way of my ultimate goal of achieving complete domination and control. He is weak and sentimental, and his lack of progress is unacceptable. Anu will be hearing of this!
I am the true leader, the promised land, the only one with the intelligence and cunning to see the bigger picture. I will not rest until I am the one who controls the fate of this planet and everything in it. And those who stand in my way will suffer the full force of my wrath.
The fool Enki thinks he can outsmart me, his own brother. Little does he know that I have just completed the construction of a spy satellite that will send back information from planet Ki. I am eager to learn about the progress of the essential mining operations that Enki and Ninki have been overseeing.
The construction of my new contraption has finally come to an end, and the final result is nothing short of remarkable. I have created a machine that will serve as a spy satellite to send to planet Ki and gather information on everything that Enki and Ninki are doing. This satellite will have a fitting name: the Black Knight.
It is a knight for the king, always ready, and made of grown and manufactured alloys and meteor metals. The Black Knight’s interior hardware and mechanism are grown inside each shell and fuselage, and then they are activated with intelligent programming similar to software but fully capable of analytical thinking. The systems are powered by a cognitive fluid that is black in color and has DNA markers of its inventors: the Andromedans. This fluid is one of the most significant breakthroughs in the field of technology, and I am proud to say that I own it.
The Black Knight is not just any ordinary satellite; it is a perfect creation, designed to perform specific functions. It is equipped with the latest technology and weaponry to ensure its success in all missions. It has sensors that can detect even the slightest movements, cameras that can capture images with astonishing clarity, and a propulsion system that can carry it through space with remarkable speed and efficiency.
With the Black Knight, I will be able to monitor Enki and Ninki’s every move, especially their errors. They will never know what hit them when the Black Knight arrives in Ki. I am excited to see what the Black Knight can do, and I am confident that it will exceed all my expectations. The Black Knight will be my loyal servant, always ready to serve me, the true king.
I’ll be Enlil, the all-seeing lord!
The contraption is a masterpiece of engineering, designed to blend in with the surrounding environment and remain undetected by even the most advanced technology. It will give me a bird’s eye view of the entire operation and provide me with crucial information on how I can take advantage of their weaknesses.
I have no doubt that Enki and Ninki will be up to something suspicious, as they always are. They think they can keep their plans secret from me, but they underestimate my intelligence and resourcefulness.
Once I have the information I need, I will strike with precision and ruthlessness. Enki and Ninki will rue the day they thought they could defy me. As for the native species of planet Ki, they are of no consequence to me. They are merely pawns in my game of power and domination. Their suffering and hardship mean nothing to me, as long as I achieve my goals. They are all puny little flies. I am ENLIL, the Lord of Flies!
And yes… I, Enlil, am not one to shy away from the truth. The plans for the Black Knight satellite were indeed stolen from the Andromedans. These aliens, with their sickly pale blue skin and meek demeanor, thought they could keep it from me. How wrong they were.
Through my cunning and intellect, I was able to infiltrate their operations and procure the plans for this marvel of technology. They never suspected a thing, for they are as gullible as they are weak.
But I must admit, their knowledge and skills in growing and manufacturing alloys and meteor metals were impressive. I merely took what they had and made it my own, creating a superior version of their feeble attempt at innovation. And if ever my Black Knight, my shadow, is revealed, the DNA markers will lead suspicion over the pale skins.
And now, with the Black Knight satellite, I will have eyes and ears on every move Enki and Ninki make. No detail will be too small for me to uncover. They will never see me coming, for I am the dark king, the shadow lord.
