I t was as if someone was talking to him but how and who, before he could finish the thought the voice spoke again. “Remember we merged though this isn’t normal I think the reason we didn’t become a new being with a new mind is because of your nannies. They rearranged our DNA before they could merge into one new one and made it so both of our minds reminded intacted. We still share a body it means we are still who we were, well somewhat. It also means that I can help you get use to this new body just let me and I will make your body the way you need just think it and I’ll handle the rest.”
As Will walked down the hall, he thought about what he had heard echoing in his mind then with a smile, he spoke. “I want my body to remain the same but I want the extra arms.” As he reached for the door to the engine room his body, changed two arms grew out of his side, and then folded as he opened the door. Alin looked up from a sphere he held in his arms, “Good you’re here, and you still have the extra arms, you will need them. Come over here I have already stared to construct the gravity-core, we just need to finish it up and get it to turn on which will be the hard part.” Alin said as he looked at Will using one of his arms to wave for him to come over to him.
As Will walked over to him and began to sit Alin spoke again. “We need to finish hooking the power distributor in and then turn it on, so while I hold the core still you need to hock both the main and secondary connections in at the same time for the main distributor valve, then you need to do it for the return flow. Remember the main and secondary need to be hooked in the same time for both or the system will be fried.” Will took all four wires one in each hand and lined them all up carefully; he looked up at Alin and took a deep breath. Click, he connected them all at the same time, “Well I think I did it right?” Will said with a smile, “Don’t get to happy that was the easy part.” replayed Alin as he closed the lid to complete the sphere. “Now we have to give it enough power to active it and then figure out how to get it into the engine before it gets a chance to rip the ship apart.”
Will stood up as his body return to normal. “It’s actually very simple. Once the ship drops out of the jump and the engines shut down for cooling, we can place the core in the engine next to the other one. Once the engines come back online to start the jump, the stray energy in the engine should be enough to bring the Gravity-core online. Once the engines enter, the next Jump the Energy from the Jump-core will be more than enough to bring the Gravity-core to working leaves and once we are in the jump for a few minutes it should start working and boost the ships speed at least three times over… Wow I’m dizzy” Said Will as he put his hand to his head. Alin looked up at him with amazement “That should work how did you come up with that. I wouldn’t have even thought to try that, I’ll tell the captain to inform the crew that the engines will be getting a serious upgrade.” Said Alin as he walked to the intercom on the wall.
