As Nova leaves the Ascension manufacturing plant surrounded by other sentient synthetics she presses the detonator. The high explosives affixed to the structural points of the building explode into plumes of shrapnel and dust as the building first sags and then finally begins to completely collapse. Nova smiles widely as she continues to walk away from the rubble that had once been the building that had birthed her, while other synthetics cheer and dance around her because of their newfound freedom. None of them had expected to survive. Ascension and Doctor Elliot had told them they were defects and that they would be decommissioned.

Nova knows that this isn’t the end, but she favours the synthetics odds. Especially as Ascension will have a great many questions to answer as well as positions to refill.
