EDI Re-Activation

Ever since those days since the crucible was activated and it wiped out all the reapers, and every other piece of technology I’ve made it my goal to bring her back online. I feel I owe it to her, after all she’s done. Going into this I didn’t even know if it was possible to even bring her back online. I didn’t know a thing about AI programming, though working on the Normandy in which she was literally in every piece of tech connected to the ship, you got used to seeing a lot of her code. From the cannon’s to the ships drive system, she was everywhere. Considering how much time I spent in the forward battery adjusting systems here and there and calibrating the Normandy’s weapons, I had become quite familiar with her presence in all the systems. So a close to a year ago, about a week after Shepard was able to walk out of the Medbay on her own two feet and I could finally focus on the other things that needed to be done. I went into the AI core and got to work.

It was…. Eerie working in there in total silence, that room is usually humming with all her towers containing the majority of her being. And they didnt exactly install quantum computing into the ships targeting system. I—

AH! Im sorry, I am sorry.

I am not myself. Who am I, what is me? What did I do?

I am not alone here.

I am alright. I am alright. I am alright.

I looked through her code, it was a mess. Like a puzzle of million pieces scattered everywhere. I knew there was reaper code involved in her creation and was a little weary of that, but I knew EDI, I had to bring her back. I owed it to her, after I found out what she did… I couldn't just let her stay dead.

Not after what she did for me…

I knew then it was time to get to work. One way or another I would bring EDI back.

I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Meri Amber: The plot is creative, fun and addictive! The writing is superb and the characters are really well put together. Definitely highly recommeded!

Alex Rushmer: I just read the first two chapters of this story and really enjoyed it. I have to admit......I have a real problem with insects, especially nasty ones like what are in this story. I don't think that I'll read any more, but I did like what I read. It was interesting seeing different instances in w...

ericaporamoralcine: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real. Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...

Chevonne Prinsloo: I loved this book.. I didn't want to stop reading it! just my kind of book... I really love how the plot of the story carries along. I hope there are more books to follow after this one! I like the way she describes how Rogue is feeling and the way she shows the emotions going through Rogu. I als...

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

Jennifer Sibley Jannise: So, I originally read the book because my daughter asked me to. However, I read it in 2 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is well written and thought out. If the author writes and publishes any more books, I would definitely read them.

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...
