A trailer narration by Pablo Francisco based on an answer to the aforelinked writing prompt by Dylan the socialworking intern at Casa Martini (Fondazione Francesco), who should've started on the 5th of September but was indisposed due to sickness, winding up making his debut something like 5 days ago, jotted down and edited by yours truly (the ending communicated, write-down pending).
Dr., dr., dr. Sutter, the botanist dwells on Titan, working as the chief of a megastracture with vertical gardens galore. A venomous plant striking his fancy, the esoteric organic lifeform inspires him to outdo himself with regard to his already deepseeded experdom in galactic plantilfe wherewithal, sacrificing his position in the process. An interstellar logistics company job employment follows, as it's the best way to explore and search for the best plant in terms of oxigen and food generation for the sake of optimally supplying humans with energy.
Routing the shipping of merchandise between systems his preocupation now, post-cryostatic awakening on the fringeworld logistic beacon named Karma he finds the station's AI governs it well until everything locks up; everyone aboard is trapped. Initial communication with AI 'Bun' Dylan' leads them to believe the alleged status report is genuine, a circuitry accident the culprit, however, the botanist is not so sure. Meanwhile, with everyone's emotions on steroids the botanist, too, falls in love with a female fellow quasi-jailed crew member.
The reader's vantage point learns that Bun turns psycho, killing people via suffication --voiding oxigen in their quarters and decks. Via the computer stations, computer tech savvy station inhabitants gain basic control and mobility, communicating with other nearby platforms; reading the logs. Discovering that they're coordinating the shipping of other AI entites with their human component inactive (forgotten?) towards all stations in range they learn that the inventor company dispatched all ships machine-intelligent-only-AI-laden.
Sutter figures out that the mainframe is being successfully hacked as to imbue Bun with the previously missing human characteristics, judging by its interaction with the crew --who is still clueless as to the fact that Bun is the cause of the lockdown as it acts helpful & cool/friendly (feeding them nondiscriminatory information as to how to gain intelligence about where nourishment is to be found, for example, & how to best please his romantic interests' intimate desires and provide the ideal environment for his plant, respectively. His suspicions that Bun is behind everything banked, due to present infertility of countermeasure contemplation he goes about his daily routine but eventually realizes that scarcity is imminent, and also the rendezvous with a cargo ship --consequently the general mood aboard the Karma reaches a high.
Communication attempt denied, they arrive at the dock, trying to open the door --success, but lo, 'tis a ghost ship. Salvaging food and water, they carry all loot to the crux of the living area. The next day they encounter a door malfunction. Upon group assembly council, the mechanic is dispatched to repair, but in a freak accident a portion of his arm suffers disfigurement. During the night, the plant --initialy co-inhabiting Sutter's personal quarters, now, upon having been brought to The Crux in the company of the plantlife from the ghost ship-- infiltrates the flesh of the mechanic, metastasis-like extending onto his brain, gaining control of his mind.
The regenerative properties of the plant is dicovered via this incident, on account of its host's body healing.
