Disciples of The Leader Otis,
Brother Henry here.
Those of you who have been Disciples for a few years now may remember that I was working on the ultimate mobile command post in case the Long-feared Dog Uprising comes to pass. I call it the “Guardian Outpost” because it utilizes one of the Guardians as its power source. The project was less than a complete success when I was working on it before, but I still feel like it has potential, so yesterday I decided to fire up the GO and run some readiness drills to see if it was still at least operational. I climbed into the catpit and went through my pre-launch checklist.
Everything seemed to be in working order, and the catpit was just as comfortable as I remembered. I checked my field of vision. One of my favorite features of the GO is how I can quickly look in any direction from my slightly raised vantage point. First, I looked straight ahead to see if any sneaky schnauzers were trying to infiltrate our front yard.
Next, I swiveled my head and checked behind me to see if any terrierists might be hiding out near the couch.
The enhanced reconnaissance features of the GO seemed to be fully functional. As I was scanning the area, I noticed Super Outpost Tabby Tower sitting nearby. I stared at it for a moment, appreciating its height and general sturdiness of the structure, but I couldn’t help but notice its primary shortcoming as well.
the Tabby Tower’s shortcoming, of course, is that it is stationary. This is the whole reason I started working on the GO project in the first place, to give me a mobile outpost from which I can command my feline forces in case of the Long-feared Dog Uprising. This has also been my biggest challenge with the project though- figuring out an effective way to steer the GO where I want it to go. Despite my lack of success at steering in my previous trials, I decided to give it another try. I meowed the “move” command and then pointed where I wanted to go.
After giving the command, the Guardian Outpost’s visual sensors seemed to be looking in the direction I had commanded it to move. I waited patiently for the drivetrain to respond.
So Says Brother Henry
