Inspired by Escape From New York and Makeup And Vanity Set.
A black sedan pulls up before the front gates of OMNITek. An ominously-lit sign reads "OMNITEK: Your Future is Our Business." JACKSON and ALPHA emerge from the car, faces grim and set. JACKSON uses his employee ID to let himself into the building. It is late at night, no employees are present, but the ever-running factory at the heart of the complex thunders in the distance. Making new machines.
They stop short. JACKSON tells ALPHA, "I don't know where to go from here. I don't have the clearance to go any deeper."
ALPHA smiles thinly. "I do." He pushes in on a secret panel and a well-hidden door in the wall moves. They descend.
JACKSON is amazed. "I've never been in this part of the complex before." The cold, sterile areas are clinical, but the thundering noise of the factory floor is getting louder. Jackson sees animals with strange machines attached to them, misshapen beings of science and technology kept in glass vials and steel cages. Strange sounds and smells abound. Soon, they move past animals and see human-cyborg combinations, hooked to tanks, laser lenses instead of eyes, wings and spindly mechanical limbs. He is stunned by all of it. "This isn't what I was building. This isn't what my program was for!"
ALPHA tells him, "These are prototypes. Useless now. Ignore them."
They go deeper. The hammering of the factory closing in on them.
JACKSON swipes at his face with his sleeve as they push through another door. "It's like the walls are breathing. And it's so fucking hot."
ALPHA is grim. "We're nearly to Hell. The place I was made."
Then a deep, strident voice, that of MISTER GRANT, emerges from the shadows. "No, this is Heaven. A pure and perfect Heaven waiting for all of mankind." He smiles strangely, and another figure also steps forward beside him. It is KILROY, but her face is cold and blank. MISTER GRANT caresses her shoulder. "From now on we make our own angels and demons."
JACKSON snarls and ALPHA lifts the AK-47 strapped over his shoulder. But both of them are too late! The new KILROY leaps and pounces on Jackson. A desperate struggle begins, KILROY trying to beat JACKSON's head in. As they punch and spit, rolling along the floor and smashing each other into tables, ALPHA turns on MISTER GRANT, who turns and runs, with a laugh. ALPHA fires wildly after him, but his internal systems clash with his will. Bullets spray into the walls and into pieces of the factory.
