Final systems report!” “All systems normal,” JACOB’s monotone voice replied, “awaiting your command!” “Begin transmission!” Bentley commanded, as he threw two silver switches, located on the main control console, over to the ‘on’ positions!
Oldham pushed the control levers, that regulated the island’s power source to JACOB, slowly forward. The hum below grew marginally louder. The bunker slightly vibrated. “Signal Transmitting!” JACOB reported, “25% broadcast radius and expanding!” “Power at 50%” Oldham replied, “and increasing!” Bentley paced the floor! “Power at 75%!” Oldham reported. “50% broadcast radius and expanding!” JACOB replied.
