Seaman: Day Three

Posted by JohnTheGamer (341 posts) -

Leonard Nimoy greets me as usual as I begin my daily observations of my seamen.  

 When I first arrive I am greeted by a gillmen telling me “it’s freezing in here”; time to adjust their environment. As I turn up the heater they say “oh good,” “hurrah” and “about time.” It’s clear they are becoming more adept with the English language. This is made clearer when I begin conversing with one. They recognize me and have feelings; when asked “how are you,” they respond with feelings, saying they’re bored.

Soon after entering, one gillmen begins sucking the blood of another; I watch and try to pull him off but am unable to. Almost immediately after this, another begins sucking blood; I’m now only left with two gillmen.

I drop in a food pellet and the two left scramble for it but one gets there first. I drop in a second food pellet, but neither is interested. It’s amazing that in only three days they have begun to converse with me. I don’t just mean by speaking; they could talk early on but it was simple words only, now they are telling me how they feel and saying one-liners.

After observing them for another ten minutes, I let them be for the night.

My blog schedule is off as this is really yesterday's events, I'm doing it now and they're really adept with the language now and are asking me questions. It's really weird, I'm having conversations with AI.
