Gecko's Proposal

Registered Phenomena Code: 547

Object Class: Beta-Yellow

Hazard Types: Extra-terrestrial Hazard, Mechanical Hazard, Sapient Hazard

Containment Protocols: RPC-547 is to be contained within a 5x10x5 meter cell in Site-045. The room must have a 10 centimeter thick glass window facing east and outside with a metal blind that can be externally closed and opened via a remote. No wireless electronics are allowed within three meters of RPC-547.

Once a week, five CSD-class with a record of mental illness or abnormal aggression are to be placed inside RPC-547's containment chamber and closely monitored. If RPC-547 approaches and interacts positively with the CSD-class, it is to be rewarded with a "walk" around Site-045 by two researchers, each armed with a pistol out of view.

Description: RPC-547 is an anomalous mechanical construct with an outward resemblance to the NASA martian rover "Opportunity". RPC-547 displays playful and excitable behavior, making soft chirping noises and driving in circles when it detects personnel who have given it positive attention. X-ray tests have revealed the subject possesses machinery far superior to anything designed on Earth, with the subject having components that function in an almost identical manner to biological organs.

RPC-547 displays no need for food, water, or air. It relies entirely on the solar panels on its back for sustenance, which are advance enough to provide the entity with three days of unhindered energy after being exposed to sunlight for a mere ten minutes. The maximum battery voltage has yet to be determined due to the anomalous design of the battery.

RPC-547 possesses a basic understanding of the English language, and frequently attempts to speak with personnel. So far, it has requested the following items:

  • A power socket for its containment facility - DENIED
  • Ten minutes a day with researchers in the break room - DENIED
  • A blanket for nighttime - ACCEPTED
  • Internet access - DENIED, containment procedures updated to prevent RPC-547 from coming into access with Bluetooth and similar wireless systems

RPC-547 possesses a 20 centimeter rod of mangled wires, cables, and tubing that it can seemingly retract into and extract from its body at any time. Max output from this appendage has been determined to be 12 Watts according to testing.

Discovery Log: RPC-547 was discovered on the playground of ██████ Elementary School on 4/18/06. The entity was seen observing and following the children on the playground by Field Agent James, who contacted Site-045 to covertly capture and bring RPC-547 to the site. As RPC-547 displayed signs of intelligence and a minimal display of aggression, the staff and lead researchers at Site-045 agreed to hold an interview with the entity.

Interview Log 4/19/06

Interviewed: RPC-547

Interviewer: Field Researcher James

Foreword: RPC-547 was placed in a metal cage with minimal resistance prior to the interview to prevent escape attempts.

F.Researcher James: Hello, 547.

RPC-547: Hello, human. Is this where you friends play, like the larvae?

F.Researcher James: Well, no. Not really. (pause) Where are you from?

RPC-547: Don't remember. I was in a large metal box. Then it was cold. Then hot. Then cold again. Then I wake up, see large brown growths. Green fluff on top of them. They pretty. So i keep going. See human hive. Happy humans. Life here is nice.

F.Researcher James: So, are you from outer space?

RPC-547: Space? Don't know. They send me. They tell me I from red place. It cold there. I dead, but now I not dead. They tell me go see Earth. I go.

F.Researcher James: Okay, just a few more questions and our time is up. How did you learn English?

RPC-547: I watch your larvae. They speak. I listen. They happy, so I happy. I learn. I talk to them and they talk to me.

F.Researcher James: Thank you for cooperating, RPC-547. Two of our guards will be here shortly to your new containment facility. Please do not resist.

RPC-547: Can I stay? It warm. Friends. Care. I know that.

F.Researcher James: I'll see what I can do.

Closing Statement: Field Researcher James was promoted to lead RPC-547 containment protocols.
