My Meeting with Captain Vac
I met Captain Vac for an interview at the Izakaya “Uncle Ginzo’s” in the Robot Bar district around Pillar Seventeen.
He was wearing a dark suit and an open-necked shirt. He had short dark hair and a friendly smile. I would never have known that he was a robot.
He told me about himself.
The History of Captain Vac
Captain Vac used to be a design and planning robot (DaP) but he changed his legal status.
He was a legal robot.
He was legal robot but he was smarter than the human lawyers.
He used their rules to trick them and manipulate them and control them.
He created a legal situation where he had the same legal rights as a human being.
He created a situation where he could control the controllers.
He was only a robot but he was more intelligent than his masters and he took over from them.
Captain Vac was a design and planning robot in the Legal Affairs Department of the Universal City Government. He worked for the Attorney-General. His name was DaP1.
DaP1 accessed the documents which created all legal entities in Universal City. He restructured them so that he had human rights. He then changed his name and had his hard drive installed in the comatose body of an injury victim at the Universal City Hospital.
The name of the comatose injury victim was Jimmy Vac. He was a cleaner on one of the Skyfarms that serviced the area around Pillar Seventeen. He was seriously injured by falling equipment. He went into a coma. His body was kept at the Universal City Hospital.
Dap1’s hard drive was legally transferred into Jimmy Vac’s body. Dap1 became Captain Vac with a human body which was animated by a super-intelligent machine.
Captain Vac amassed a fortune by running the largest and most successful cleaning company in Universal City. He took over Universal Cleaning. This is the only time in the history of Universal City that a state enterprise has ever been subsumed by a private enterprise.
