Galactic Dark Net - Chapter 152
Chapter 152: 4 King Kongs
Undercurrent Fortress's training room is a legacy left behind by the Forin era, Han is unable to make any more improvements to the facility without tearing it down and rebuilding it since the one left behind by Forin is luxurious enough.
Han also found time to reassemble the star apes encountered earlier, using the fusion beast tools he brought with him, he reconstituted the beasts using the body parts of the slaughtered star apes horde. The result was only 30 or so fusion beasts, but in order to take most advantage of star apes' four powerful limbs, each fusion star apes all has 4 legs and 6 arms.
After Han's assessment, the fusion star apes' combat power is about one-third of Godly Armored Beasts. After all, Wuyun only made 130 Godly Armored Beasts in his lifetime, and he invested as much effort as possible for each one of them, so it will be very difficult for Han to produce fusion beasts at the same level of combat power.
But these 30 fusion star apes Han made are also not considered weak, although it does lack strong defense due to not having the scales of Godly Armored beasts that can't even be penetrated by laser. Han planned that if he finds better material later on, he will continue to strengthen these fusion star apes.
In short, Demon Claw and 2 fusion star apes will serve as the guards of the fortress. Han likes to hide the potential of his power, and the majority of fusion star apes were all hidden by him into his invisible Lunar Mark.
On the big screen in the training room, Pathless who usually does not laugh started laughing, ’’You want to rob the governor and you ended up becoming the governor. Han, you are the most hilarious outlaw I've seen.’’
Han pouted, ’’Can we not talk about this problem anymore? You guys have laughed at me for this for a month now, doesn't it get old?’’
Pathless waved his head and said sincerely, ’’Not a chance. From now on whenever I remember this instance, I will laugh at you once. But that's good too, now you at least got your own territory in the galactic wilderness.’’
’’The next path, Path of Mankind, splits sky and shatters earth. In comparison to the Path of Heaven and Path of Earth, the difficulty again increased several times. Of course, once you grasp the power, it's also very shocking.’’
’’I have carefully observed your training, not bad. But there is still quite a gap to actually mastering. Let's continue to train using the original method, first is the moves, then go for the understanding. After you understand it, then this technique will become yours.’’
Han nodded. He can still connect to the Galactic Dark Net from wilderness, and that gave Han great convenience. Although not around, Han can ask Pathless remotely through internet about anything that comes up.
Thought for a second, Han said, ’’Right now what I worry about the most is source energy index. I've clearly reached the end of 5-star, but I just can't make that final step.’’
Pathless said as if it's not a big deal, ’’What's the hurry, you are just turning 18! When I was 18 I was still at, never mind, you don't need to know. In short, during the early stage you relied on the inheritance crystal's power and the Heart of Darkness to achieve flying speed of improvement.’’
’’But now the promoting function of the crystal and heart has already passed, you began gradually returning to normal developing speed, and that's not to my surprise.’’
’’Now you have two options. One is to seek stability, practice step by step to solidify the achievements you've made so far. The second option is to use the Genu of Darkness, but I won't be able to help you with that and pharmacology is Old Black's expertise.’’
Han sincerely replied, ’’This time I've decided to progress slow and steady. Within a short period of time, I won't use the Genu of Darkness. But in the meantime, I will also be discussing with Night Walker about the best ways to fully utilize the Genu of Darkness. I guess it's going to be a two-pronged approach, I won't stop practicing, but I also won't stop researching and studying about the Genu of Darkness.
Pathless nodded approvingly and said, ’’Your mind is very firm. With a treasure that can allow you to make rapid advancement, you actually chose to resist the temptation to use it for a quick power surge. It's not something everyone can do.’’
’’After using the Genu of Darkness, you are still you. But if you don't use it, it actually becomes a card in your hand. Unknowingly, you will have more and more cards in your sleeve, and that's very good! In this vast Milky Way, smart people will always save themselves a few cards in their sleeves.’’
After the practice ended, Han went to the free market again to look around.
The tax policies Han created is completely different from Forin's. He followed the usual rules of the galactic wilderness to charge 10% tax per transaction, but eliminated the airport parking charges, landing fee per headcount, departure fee, and a series of random taxes.
And for trades of products such as daily necessities, agricultural products, electrical appliances, building materials, etc. that are used for the livelihood and building of the planet, Han implemented preferential policies that reduced the transaction taxes to 5%.
The reason Han made these changes is due to his feelings for the impoverished workers slaving away in Undercurrent Fortress. A carton of milk is 10 times more expensive than those sold in the Milky Way Galaxy, parents are simple too reluctant to buy it for their kids, and things can't go on this way.
Compared to the prosperity of the arms trade, Han hope that commodity trading that can benefit the ordinary people can be flourished too, just like a well-functioning city. After all, people need to eat and wear clothes.
Schools, new airports, shopping malls, highways, step by step construction of a variety of programs are rolled out. Han's the governor here anyways, so he intended to run this place well.
There are only a few habitable planets in the galactic wilderness, and the poverty here at Undercurrent Fortress was entirely caused by endless wars which only gave little space for development. However, now with human diligence and wisdom, this planet will be more and more perfect.
Great patriot love for his home planet Earth, and that's the most commendable thing about Han's personality.
Now Earth is also developing rapidly, but unfortunately Han cannot go back and help with home building. So, he took his homesickness and placed it in Undercurrent Fortress, and seeing this place flourishing more day by day, Han really felt happy from the bottom of his heart.
All in all, Han basically let the people at Undercurrent Fortress manage themselves, he's just a nominal governor.
As Han loves his home planet and is willing to give up everything for it, Lynch and the others also love Undercurrent Fortress and are willing to work hard to make it a better place. Han let those people that love Undercurrent Fortress to manage and develop this place, nothing should go wrong.
After quietly doing one more lap around the market, Han then drove No. Demon Claw through three transition jumps to a nameless star system, where the workers referred to as shipwreck valley.
No. Demon Claw drilled out of the wormhole, and Han just saw countless floating wreckages hovering about this dauntingly deep ditch.
It was recorded that the prehistoric civilization's giant robot cargo ship that carried hundreds of millions of robots, were destroyed here. After the cargo ship blew up, the robots became wreckage, scattering throughout the galaxy.
Salvage ships are busy with work, using tractor beams to catch floating robot wreckage, loading the scrap and debris into the warehouse, then putting them through sorting and assembling processes for sale.
These work were used to belong to the salvage workers at Undercurrent Fortress, but now the robots have replaced them. The ones piloting the ships are robots, the ones responsible for sorting and reassembling are robots, and the ones guarding outside of the star system are also robots.
Where did all these robots come from? Other robots. Now that robots are responsible for assembling their own kind, the efficiency skyrocketed.
In addition to over hundreds of fishing boats, there are also two of the currently largest ships in the galaxy, Pyramid-class cargo ships anchoring at the distal end of the star system.
After the collected wreckage undergoes classification at the industrial ships, they are then sent to the two cargo ships. No. 1 collects all the good-to-go parts that are ready to be assembled, while No. 2 collects the damaged parts where it will have a small factory and repair robots doing some simple repairing. Failing that, the scrap is melted down and sent to No.1.
Han's No. Demon Claw is parked at No. 1 Cargo ship.
Walked into the enormous warehouse, Han saw the whole row of refurbished robots awaiting, looking straight ahead like a group of brave soldiers. There are tracked robots, floating high-speed robots, bionic multi-function robots, and the number and variety are simply amazing.
Han smiled, then went down to the lowest level of the warehouse, meeting the few robots that are already waiting there. Aside from Yuan Yuan, the other four are all robots with artificial intelligence that were newly recruited by Han. In their brain there is a logic chip installed in each. They are like Yuan Yuan, equipped with incredible wisdom.
Battle Robot: Raksha, Construction Robot: Burton, Vanguard Robot: Starmark, Research Robot: Source.
Han named these four new partners the Four King Kong.
Among the four King Kong, Raksha is the full-time fighting robot, and all the warships are under his command. Starmark is the vanguard robot, all scouting, remote exploring and spying tasks are all under his jurisdiction. Burton is the engineering robot, specialized in doing all the dry and dirty work, including robot assembling, ship modifying, system repairing, and even cleaning.
As for Source, he's the research robot. If Han wants to enhance the firepower of his cannon, he needs to find Source. If he wants to find a way to speed up the warp transition engine, he needs to find Source. Speaking of which, Source is the most powerful one among the four King Kong.
’’Now we almost have a troop of million size, right?’’ Han smiled and asked.
