PROLOGUE

The Everfree forest was quiet at the time. No dangerous monsters or critter lurking about. Just a nice lazy afternoon where no conflicts would have risen. "I wonder how Zecora is doing?" Fluttershy thought to herself out loud as she wandered through the forest careful not to get lost. "Pherhaps I should pay here a visit and help her pick potion ingredients. All the animals back at the cottage are fed already so I guess I have some time to spare"

"Hmmm, mabye I can...-OW!" Unlike many other pegasi, Fluttershy preferred to walk/gallop in the form of traveling. She turned to see what she had tripped over. It was an odd oval egg shaped object with 3 legs , 2 small antennas on the top, and a line running down the middle with a emty hole in the center. There was evidence of it being here for as long time for there were cracks on the shell, moss, dirt, and some rust. Fluttershy was unfamiliar with such object but disregarding all logic of not touching foreign objects, she picked it up. 'BEEP! BEEP! BEEP!'. "EEP" she yelped as she dropped the turret and scurried behing a near by log. The object's hole was no longer empty for it was replaced by a red glowing light. "Power up initiated," it said in a child-like robotic voice. "Warning! Turret is not on it's feet. regain upright posture to avoid any further damage. Hello? is anyone there?" "Um, yes, hello" Fluttershy spoke as she peaked her head out from behind the log. "um... who are you?"

She said as she came completely out from behind her hiding of saftey. "Firearms disabled. Activating protocol 241." it responded. "Hello, I am the Aperture Science Enrichment Facility A.I. Scouting turret. Please identify youself while I scan enviornments." "Oh um, my name is Fluttershy... and um are you alright, you seem to be in poor condition." "Earth is now in safe conditions. reporting back to facility...message sent." "Hello Fluttershy. my internal clocks tell me I've been here for 9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-'FZZKT'! Warning! Internal clock damage! Further damage reports: transpotation systems offline. Fire-arms jammed. Self-destruct systems unfunctional. and yes I would be in need of repairs but it seems that isn't an option so I guess ill just sit here and die" Fluttershy was imediatly shocked by this. "But thats horrible! Why would you just leave yourself to die?" She asked horrified. "I have fulfilled my purposed as the scouting turret so the facility has no need of me. besides, making another turret is alot easier. but I guess living would 've been a better way to go." She truly felt sorry for this creature and her compassion took over. "Come on little turret, lets go back to my cottage. Now don't you worry. I'll find a way to fix you up!" She hoisted the turret over her back and started flying back home. "WHEEEEEE!" The turret screamed in delight.

Thousands of miles below the surface...

A dark room was sitting there undisturbed. small nanobots where running all over the place keeping it in check. But the main contraption was the thing that was in the room. A huge machine hooked up to a massive ceiling all linking to the machine at the bottom. The round rectangular prisms yellow eye flickered on and off until it finally stabalized.
