PART ONE: THE GENESIS
Long ago there was a planet named Skaro, once a beautiful and luscious world, but war came between the two races the Kaleds and the Thals. A war so great and so long that it destroyed all other life on the planet besides two cities, one inhabited by the Kaleds, the other by the Thals, while in the wasteland region lived those that were mutated by radiation, called the Mutos, forced to live there because they were viewed as diseased. And when the war was over only one race ruled the planet, a new race of pure evil, a race full of hate. This is the full origin of the DALEKS!
Chapter 1. Birth
As I walked in the bunker I could only wonder what the Scientific Elite wanted to ask of me. My name is Sec, commander of the Kaled army. I was born in this war against the Thals just like every other child in the past thousand years, I came from a poor family, and just like every other peasant I was forced to be a soldier to fight in this war, a war I never understood, why did we have to be enemies, are we not all living beings, can't we make peace. I wish that this war could be over but I do not have the power that everyone thinks I have. Once the military lead this fight, but as the war dragged on and lives were lost the High Council decided to try a new kind of tactic, science. And to head this Elite group of scientists was a cruel, and narcissistic madman named Davros. That's why they made me Commander in Chief hoping I'll be a yes man.
As I walked in I was greeted by Ronson, a former brother in arms now scientist.
RONSON: Sec how good it is to see you again. What brings you here?
SEC: I was ordered to come here I do not know why?
R: Well if Davros wanted to see you then it can't be anything good.
S: Whatever it is I'll get through it for the sake of my family.
R: How is Jast?
S: She is fine, almost due.
R: Congratulations on becoming a father, I know he'll be raised well.
S: Thank you, I hope this war will be over soon so I can raise this child in the world he deserves. Maybe you and your colleagues will find a way to finally end it.
S: Is everything alright my friend?
R: No… it's not, what we're working on you would be horrified how immor-
Suddenly a guard came in.
Guard: Chief Nyder will see you now Commander.
So I said goodbye to Ronson and I followed the guard to Nyder's office. Nyder is Chief of Security and Davro's right hand man. I once knew him in the army as a lieutenant, he was a spoiled brat from a rich family, who only got where he is because of his connections and for the incident with Davros.
Davros was once a lowly scientist who was injured by a terrorist bomb, blowing off his legs, his right arm and majorly disfiguring the rest of his body, While on the verge of dying, Nyder discovered him and took him to safety, Davros with all his strength told Nyder about a secret project he was working on, a life support system. Nyder was able to connect him to the system saving his life. As a reward for his survival and his scientific abilities Davros was made head of the Scientific community, and Nyder was chosen as his assistant as a reward for his act of 'heroism' becoming his most loyal servant.
I walked into the office and spotted Nyder at his desk. I walked over and shook his hand.
Nyder: Commander Sec.
Sec: Chief Nyder, I'm here as ordered, now can you explain why?
N: Do you want to end this war?
S: Excuse me?
N: I said do you want to end this war?
S: Yes, more than anything.
N: What if I tell you we are working on a project that can end this war once and for all.
N: Yes, but we need your help in order for it to succeed.
S: My help?
N: In order for the project to continue we need test subjects.
S: Test Subjects?
N: We realized that every day soldiers are being sent to fight and a good many of them come back injured, some even crippled.
S: (horrified realization) You want me to send you the injured soldiers so you can experiment on them?
N: I know it is a lot to ask but it is necessary for the experiment to continue.
S: Will they survive these experiments?
N: Odds are many of them won't but when you think about it they can no longer serve in any other way for the war effort.
S: No I will not allow you to do this. These men dedicated their life to the war effort and you expect me to repay them like this. No I will not do this.
N: Very well, maybe you and your wife will like to volunteer instead, I hear she is pregnant.
S: (paused then sighed ) Alright I'll issue the order.
N: Good, you may leave.
Afterwards I went back home, while traveling back I couldn't help but feel ashamed about betraying my fellow soldiers, but the very idea of my beloved Jast and unborn child being Davros' experiments frightened me too much to refuse I can only hope that my people will forgive me. I walked through the door at my home when suddenly I heard screaming and my mother, Thay, ran to me.
SEC: Mother what's going on?
T: Jast has gone into labor!
In that instance the whole world went mad. I told mother to call a doctor, and I ran to my wife, I saw my wife on our bed, sweating, looking like she was in pure agony. I walked to her, kneeled down, and held my beloved's hand.
JAST: Sec thank the Dals your here.
SEC: My love how could I miss the most important day of my life?
J: Darling can you believe we are going to be parents.
S: I always feared I would not live to see this day.
J: (sad look) I feared that as well, this world we live in, how can we raise our child in this Hell?
S: I don't know how, but we will find a way, I promise you we will find a way.
THAY: Sec, Jast the doctor is here.
As the Doctor began the delivery, My mother and I waited out the door. As the birthing continued I couldn't help but keep worrying about Jast and our baby, I don't know if I could go on if something happened to my beloved. Suddenly the doctor yelled for me to come in.
SEC: What's wrong, Jast is everything alright?
DOCTOR: Commander your child it's… it's.
That was when I saw my child in the doctor's arms. It was a girl, but she was disfigured, her face looked melted and only one of her eyes appeared to be functioning. There was no denying what I was seeing my daughter was a Muto!
THAY: I don't understand how is this even possible, this child… she's… she's a Muto!
DOCTOR: There is only one possible explanation. Commander were you exposed to radiation right before this… creature was conceived?
That was when I remembered that weeks before my promotion I was involved in an operation to gather intelligence from the Thal headquarters. As I was sneaking into the the weapon testing room I accidentally broke a radiation canister, exposing myself to the fumes. The alarm then went off but I was able to escape before the guards came. I was successfully able to make my way back to the Kaled city when I suddenly collapsed from radiation poisoning. Luckily the doctors were able to save me and for my bravery I was promoted to Commander in Chief of the entire Kaled military. Afterwards I was sent back to my wife to recuperate. I was brought back to the present when my wife suddenly spoke.
JAST: Please doctor let me have my child, please.
DOCTOR: This creature is an abomination that must be reported to the grand council.
S: I will not let you take her.
D: She is diseased Commander.
S: She is my little girl and I will not let you or anyone else hurt her.
D: She must be exterminated!
S: GIVE HER BACK!!!
I then snatched my baby from the arms of this piece of racist scum called a doctor, when suddenly there was a bang. Everything was silent, then suddenly the doctor fell down and I saw that behind him was my mother holding a gun.
SEC: Mother… what have you done?
THAY: It was either him or her, I don't care what she looks like she is my granddaughter and I want her safe.
S: None of us will be safe now. We are now criminals, traitors of the Kaled race.
T: Then we will leave this city before our crimes are discovered.
S: But there is no where else to go.
JAST: Yes there is.
I turned to my beloved wife.
JAST: The Wastelands, they will never go after us there.
SEC: No we can't the Wastelands are a place of death and suffering, we would be exposed to the radiation, forced to scavenge food while avoiding the most dangerous of creatures.
J: At least there we have a chance to survive, a chance to raise our daughter, a chance to live as a family. If we stay then we will die.
As much as I didn't like it I knew she was right, we had no choice, in order for our daughter to live. We had to go to the Wastelands.
Chapter 2: Captured
13 Years Later
SEC: Gaia where are you my little genius?
My name is Gaia, daughter of Sec and Jast. My parents were once respected citizens of the Kaled people. Until they had me, a Muto, then they had no choice but to leave, to abandon their homes, to run. Eventually they found a group of Mutos out in the Wastelands and formed a community led by my father. Right now my father and I our out in no man's land, scavenging for food and supplies, during our search I ran ahead looking for salvageable debris for my inventions.
SEC: Gaia what were you thinking, leaving out of my sight?
GAIA: I'm sorry father, I was only looking for spare parts, so I can finish my hover vehicle.
S: (sigh) alright just make it quick or the Thals will find us and force us into slavery.
G: Yes, Father.
We were examining a damaged spaceship, until we found the engine hatch, we tried to open it but found it locked. So I took out my sonic probe to open it.
SEC: Gaia, sweetheart wherever did you find that?
GAIA: I made it from scraps I found during our searches in no man's land.
S: Impressive honey, but we really should go before the Thal search party gets here, hurry and grab what what you need.
G: Yes, Father.
After we had finished salvaging, we began our journey, walking through the wastelands, seeing nothing but craters and debris, and above all corpses, rotting, burning. When you live your whole life in this world you learn to accept all of it as any old day, but there is one thing that still bothers me, the smell. The smell of death, and during our walk home I couldn't help ask my father this.
SEC: Yes, my little genius?
G: Why are the Kaleds and the Thals even fighting this war, what is this all even about?
S: (SIGH) Well the legend goes my child that a thousand years ago before this war even began this planet was inhabited by only one race, the Dals, they were a race of philosophers and teachers, they were so great that their name was a title which translated as 'supreme', because they were said to have achieved enlightenment.
G: What happened to them?
S: They say one day the Emperor, the wisest of all the Dals, passed away from some mysterious disease, leaving two sons as his heirs, but no one could decide who should be crowned Emperor, in response two factions were formed, each one in support of the heirs.
G: the Kaleds and Thals!
S: Correct my little genius, and as the years passed both factions eventually evolved into still similar yet different races through years of exposure to radiation, and along the lines both sides developed a philosophy of racial supremacy viewing anything different as inferior, therefore they have to be (SIGH) exterminated.
It was at that moment I remembered why we were even here in the first place. I was born deformed, different than everyone else. So my parents and grandmother snuck me out of the Kaled city in order to save my life, and we have lived in these wastelands ever since. My family sacrificed everything so I could live.
SEC: Is everything alright my little genius?
GAIA: Back in the Kaled city you held a position of influence right?
S: Well I was the Commander of the Military Elite.
G: Then if I was never born, you, mom, and grandma would still be respected citizens, living amongst your own-
S: Don't you dare talk like that ever again my little genius.
G: (CRYING) But it's true if I was never born, you would have been so much happier.
S: If you were never been born we would have never been complete.
G: I wish I was born normal.
S: You are perfect just the way you are.
G: I'M UGLY!!!
S: NO! You listen to me my little genius, you are not ugly, you are the most beautiful person that has ever existed.
G: You really think I'm beautiful?
S: Of course I do.
After I hugged my father, we continued walking home when we suddenly saw a body lying on the ground injured but alive, it was a Kaled soldier, I asked my father what we should do, he didn't answer, he suddenly picked him up and we continued on our way back home. Eventually we made it back to our community and were greeted by our fellow villagers. Before I knew it my mother enveloped me in a hug.
JAST: My little girl thank the Dals you and your father are home, why I agreed to let you go out to no man's land I'll never know.
GAIA: I had to mother, father needed help.
J: He is a man, you are just a child.
G: Who also happens to be the best scavenger in the whole community.
THAY: You know she has a point.
G: Thank you grandma.
T: Oh welcome back precious.
Suddenly I noticed Caan running towards us. Caan has been my best friend for as long as I can remember. Me and him would spend hours talking and playing with each other while the adults discussed amongst each other about escape plans in case we are discovered by either the Kaleds or Thals.
CAAN: Gaia your back are you okay.
GAIA: Yes I'm fine Caan, and I'm happy to say the trip was a success.
C: The sonic probe worked?
G: Of course it worked, don't sound so surprised.
C: Sorry, but you did basically make it out of junk.
G: Yeah because I'm just that good.
Suddenly we heard yelling between my father, who was still holding the Kaled soldier and a villager.
SEC: This man needs medical attention now!
MUTO: Why did you even bring him here?
S: He would have died if I had just left him there.
M: Then why didn't you.
THAY: He has a point you know.
T: What!? He is a Kaled soldier, do you think he would treat us with such kindness, if he lives he could destroy us all.
S: We are not them. And I will not let us become them.
And with that my father walked away and went to the sick tent, so the soldier could be healed. Eventually he got well and my father let him leave only if he swore to never tell anyone about us. He swore and then left. Weeks later was when everything changed and I learned that mercy was life's greatest weakness.
It was a regular night when suddenly we heard tanks coming towards us and Kaled troops descended on our village, burning it to the ground in a matter of minutes.
In the chaos me, Caan, and my father were able to escape the destruction. Suddenly my father stopped running.
GAIA: Father what are you doing?
SEC: Listen to me just keep going north and you two will make it to a fellow Muto village. I'll meet up later.
S: I have to go back to try and find your mother and grandmother.
G: No you can't, please father don't go.
S: I love you my little genius, take care of her son.
CAAN: I will sir, you have my word.
And with that we separated and I never saw my father again. Me and Caan kept running and running when suddenly…
Kaled Troop: Halt in the name of the Kaled race!
We were surrounded and had no choice but to surrender.
Chapter 3. The Project
After we were captured, they forced us into the back of a prison tank with all the other captured. The first thing I noticed was that none of my family was here, which could only mean that… that. Nobody spoke for the whole journey, the only sound was the whimpers coming from the other prisoners. But I didn't shed any tears, because I didn't feel like I had the strength to do it. Eventually we made it to the Kaled City, and once we got there they forced us into these prison cells.
Kaled guard: Get in there you freaks!
Then me and Caan were thrown in a cell by the guard. Afterwards I got up and walked to a corner of the room and sat there in silence. it wasn't until a few minutes later that I noticed Caan standing in front of me staring.
CAAN: Gaia, did they hurt you, are you all right?
GAIA: (CRYING) Am I alright? These men just destroyed our home, murdered our families, and threw us in this prison! No I am not alright. I'm angry.
C: Gaia please don't talk like this this.
G: Why not? They took everything from us, I hate them, I wish they were dead.
C: Enough, your father would not want you to think like this.
G: My father is dead!
C: And is this how you plan to honor his legacy, by betraying everything your father believed in, by becoming just like them!?
I realized he was right, I'm becoming the very thing I hate, the very thing my father hated. And I knew if I continued like this, then my father would never forgive me. That was knowledge I couldn't live with. I hugged Caan and begged to be forgiven.
GAIA: (CRYING) I'm sorry, I'm so sorry, please forgive me, please.
CAAN: It's alright Gaia, it will be okay as long as we stay together, I promise I will always be here for you and I will always protect you.
Nyder was showing me the prisoners that were captured by our men, weeks earlier a soldier who was believed to have died in combat returned to the Kaled City and told his commanding officer about a camp of Mutos who had taken him in to be healed. Once I read the report I realized that with our 'volunteers' dwindling, more subjects were needed to complete project “Supreme God”. Eventually the Kaled search party had returned with a good number of subjects.
NYDER: As you can see sir we have successfully captured dozens of Mutos who will help continue the project.
DAVROS: It matters not, if we cannot find the perfect candidate, then there will be no point for the project to continue.
N: (SIGH) Sir you have been interviewing candidates for years, you are running out of time, you have to pick someone soon, before our race is wiped from existence.
D: I will not pick just anyone, whoever I choose must be worthy to continue our people's legacy.
N: What was wrong with the candidates you already examined?
D: They were weak, stupid, and full of fear. I will only choose someone of great strength, intellect, and determination. Someone who has the will to never stop until the enemy is defeated, until they victorious. I will settle for nothing except perfection.
N: But sir you are running out of options, just pick someone so we can-
D: ENOUGH! You will be silent or punished for your insubordination do you understand.
N: Yes sir
We continued on our inspection of the Kaled prison cell. With every Muto I inspected, I became more and more disappointed with what I had observed. I was ready to leave, believing this whole inspection was nothing but a failure, when I suddenly noticed something on the confiscation table. I went to the table and picked it up with my one hand, it was a sonic probe, it appeared to have been made of scraps, but it seemed to be functioning, I would even say that it was more advanced than our technology.
NYDER: Sir, is everything alright?
It was then I slowly came out of my trance, and I turned my attention to the Kaled guard.
KALED GUARD: (NERVOUS) Is everything alright sir?
DAVROS: Where did you get this.
KG: I'm. I'm sorry sir?
D: Where. Did. You. Get. This?
KG. Oh, we. We found it in the possession of a little Muto girl, sir.
D: Lead me to the little girl.
KG: Excuse me sir
D: I said, “Lead me to the little girl”.
Everything was quiet at first. Me and Caan just sat on the bed in silence for hours. None of us said anything, we didn't know what to say. This lasted until I couldn't keep quiet anymore.
CAAN: Yes Gaia, is there something you want to talk about?
G: I don't know what's going to happen, I'm scared.
C: I'm scared to, but as long as you're here, I know we can overcome whatever they have in store for us.
It was at that moment I held his hand, stared into his eyes, and we smiled at each other. I knew he was right, no matter what happened, we will get through it together. Suddenly the cell door opened, a Kaled guard came in, he walked towards us and he grabbed Caan.
CAAN: Hey what are you doing? Let me go!
KALED GUARD: Just shut up and come with me you Muto filth!
GAIA: Where are you taking him!
He gave no answer and left, dragging Caan with him. They were gone, I sat there, in silence, alone. When suddenly someone came in, it was a man, he had only one arm, his body was deformed, and it appeared the only way he was alive was that he was attached to a mobile life support system. He moved until he was right in front of me and he spoke.
DAVROS: Hello my child how are you?
GAIA: (Says nothing)
D: Will you not speak to me my child?
G: Where's Caan? What did you do to him? I want to see him. NOW!
D: Don't worry my child he is alright, and he will be brought back to you, I just wanted a moment to speak to you alone.
G: What do you want from me?
He then held out his hand showing me what it was. I recognized it in an instant, it was my sonic probe.
DAVROS: Where did you get this?
GAIA: (SAYS NOTHING)
D: I asked you a question. WHERE DID YOU GET THIS?!
G: I made it, from scraps I found in the Wastelands.
Even though he was deformed beyond comprehension, I could tell by his face how surprised he was, and if I didn't know better I'd say that he was actually impressed.
He eventually came out of his trance and looked back at me.
DAVROS: Forgive me for being so inconsiderate, allow me to introduce myself, I am Davros, head of the-
GAIA: I know who you are.
D: Do you?
G: You are exactly as my father described.
D: Am I, tell me who is your father? What is his name?
G: His name was Sec, former Commander of the Kaled Military Elite.
D: Ah, Now it all makes sense, You're the reason why the 'Great' Commander Sec betrayed the cause, betrayed his race.
G: How DARE you insult his memory, my father was a HERO. And he was a better man THAN YOU WILL EVER BE!
I expected him to have slashed at me, to call the guards, to kill me right there and then. But nothing happened, he just stayed there, staring at me, and the weirdest part of it all was he didn't look angry at all, he actually looked impressed, satisfied.
D: You seem to have quite the interest in science little one.
G: I made a few things, came up with an idea or two.
D: Tell me.
G: What? Tell you what?
D: You're ideas, I want to hear them.
G: Why would I talk to you about anything?
D: You don't, but the sooner you obey, the sooner you see your friend again.
G: Alright, I obey.
And that's how it all started. Davros kept true to his word, After we finished our conversation, he brought Caan back to our cell, then left. And that was how it went for the next few months, Davros and I were left alone in my cell, we talk, he brings Caan back, and leaves. Although I was disgusted by him, I could not help but enjoy our conversations. We talked about telepathic linking, energy manipulation, quantum levitation, force field generation, and other scientific theories. Eventually we moved on to other topics such as life, death, and morality. Today we were talking about the subject of destiny.
GAIA: I don't get it, how man can still believe in something so absurd.
DAVROS: Absurd? Without destiny my child, we have nothing.
G: You believe in destiny? You of all people? Why?
D: (SMIRKS) It was years ago, I was your age, when I one day got lost in the wastelands. I was in the middle of a battle, when suddenly I stumbled into a field of hand mines, I thought I was going to die right there and then. When out of nowhere a man came, pulled out some sort of weapon and cleared a path for me to escape. He led me back to the Kaled city, and I never saw him again.
G: Nice story, but what does that have to do with the idea of destiny?
D: Ever since that day I could not stop thinking about that man. Where did he come? Who was he? And why did he save me? One day I came to a realization, I was spared because I was meant for greater things.
G: And what would that be?
D: In do time child, in do time.
G: Whatever, you'll never convince me destiny is real.
D: Why is that my child?
G: Look at me, the second I was born, me and my family were forced into exile. Now I'm here in a prison. What kind of destiny is that?
D: Well, I'm sure faith will prove you were meant for greater things.
As I waited in my office, I began to think about the next phase of Project Supreme God. The more time I spent with the little girl, Gaia, the more impressed I was with her. She had proven herself of having great intelligence, strong determination, and of course… ANGER. And I knew then and now, it was time. Suddenly my door opened and my assistant Nyder walked in.
NYDER: I came here as ordered sir, is there something you needed of me?
DAVROS: It's time.
N: Time sir? Excuse me but time for what?
D: The next step of Project Supreme God.
Nyder's face had suddenly turned into a look of pure shock and horror.
NYDER: You can't be serious sir, your actually choosing… Her.
DAVROS: She has proven herself, she possesses all the attributes necessary to be the best candidate.
N: Sir, she's a little girl, a MUTO. The council will never approve this, if they find out-
D: ENOUGH! THIS IS MY PROJECT AND I WILL DECIDE HOW IT WILL BE DEVELOPED! AND IF YOU EVER QUESTION MY ORDERS AGAIN, I WILL SEE TO IT THAT YOU ARE PUNISHED! DO I MAKE MYSELF CLEAR?!
N: Yes, Sir.
D: Good, Now Leave.
After Nyder left, I began to feel a great pride growing in me. The time has finally come. My destiny will soon be fulfilled. The Kaled race will live on through the young Gaia. She will become the first Supreme God, the first Dalek.
It was nighttime, at least I assumed it was, the cell didn't have a window. It was just me and Caan, lying on the bed, trying to sleep. When suddenly the cell door just slammed open and two guards came in.
GUARD 1: Get the girl!
The other guard came towards us, and grabbed me. He dragged me to the door, I tried to break free but he was too strong.
GAIA: Let go of me!
GUARD 2: Just shut up!
CAAN: Leave her alone!
Caan rushed forward and tackled the guard that was holding me, breaking me free of his grip. Caan and the guard were wrestling on the ground, I would've helped but I was too shocked to do anything.
Guard 2: Get this freak off me!
There was a bang. The other guard was holding a gun, it was smoking. Caan went limp, his back turned red. The guard pushed him off, and I ran to him.
GAIA: Caan!!! (CRYING) Caan? Caan? Caan?
He was gone. My best friend, and the only person I had left in the world was dead.
I felt great sadness, sorrow and something else, something so much stronger, hatred. I felt such hatred, I hated the troops who destroyed my village, I hated the guards who killed Caan, I hated every creature on this planet. The guards grabbed me and carried me away. I didn't know where they were taking me, what would happen next. But if I was going die, then so be it.
Chapter 4. Rebirth
I was taken to some sort of operating room, I was set down on the table and strapped in. The doors then opened, and in came Davros, he moved towards me, stopping next to the table, looked down at me, and smiled. I don't know what was going to happen, but I did know one thing, I never hated anyone as much as I hated him right now.
GAIA: You're men killed Caan.
DAVROS: It matters not.
G: TO ME IT DOES!
D: Not for long.
G: If your going to kill me, then just do it already.
D: (AMUSED) Kill you? No, I have other plans for you. BIGGER plans.
G: What plans?
D: You'll see my child, it's time for you to fulfill your destiny.
Before I could ask what he even meant, an oxygen mask was placed on my face. I tried to struggle, to break freak, but I slowly started to lose consciousness. And I was out. My eyes opened, I was back in the wastelands, bodies were littered all over the place, a battle had just happened, just like always, and yet something just didn't feel right. I looked around, studying the whole area, and that was when I realized what was wrong, the sky, it was all wrong, it was orange and the moons, the MOONS were copper. This wasn't Skaro. I was on another world. This was impossible, none of the known universes had the atmosphere to support life. I then noticed a body still moving. I ran to the body, and turned it over. And what I saw, scared me more than anything I ever went through. It was my father, he was bleeding, dying. He then looked at me, right in the eyes.
SEC: You… Did... This.
And he was gone. At that moment, I couldn't help but feel alone. The only thing I felt now was pain. I was going to cry, when suddenly I heard a voice.
???: TURN AROUND!
I did as I was told, I turned around and what I saw, well I just didn't know. It was some sort of metal… creature. The voice. It's voice was the most horrible thing I ever heard.
It just stood there looking at me over with its eyestalk. Then it spoke.
It fired a beam from one of it rods. I would've screamed, I should have been scared, but I wasn't. Actually, this somehow felt right, like this is how it was meant to be. The beam came towards me and I woke up.
I was awake. And yet, I don't know what, but something just didn't feel right. I felt different, I couldn't move, couldn't look around, it was as if I was a statue. It was then something came into my view. It was Davros, he just sat there, looking at me, smiling.
I didn't like it, that smile couldn't mean anything good. Only one thing came to my mind, only one question.
My voice! My voice was different. It was all wrong. He changed my voice. What else did he change.
DAVROS: Ah, you are awake. Excellent.
GAIA: (HYSTERICAL) WHAT DID YOU DO!?
D: I made you better, see for yourself.
He moved away. There was something behind him, it was a computer monitor, and what I saw on the screen was the most horrible monstrosity I ever laid my eye on, it was some sort of creature in a glass tube. It looked like a cross between a cephalopod and a brain. I eventually realized the truth, what that thing really was, who that was. It was me.
GAIA: WHAT DID YOU DO TO ME!?
DAVROS: I made you better, I made you supreme.
G: I DO NOT UNDERSTAND!
D: For centuries child, the radiation used in the war had slowly mutated our race, while all the other Kaleds saw this as the end of our people's purity, I saw it as the final step to our true form. After all if we were already supreme then why are we still evolving. So I decided to speed up the process to see what we would become, but I needed someone worthy to be the first of our new kind.
G: AND YOU CHOSE ME, WHY!?
D: You had proven yourself to be the perfect candidate. You possessed all the abilities I was looking for, intelligence, determination, and anger. You are our people's future, from your blood, we will survive. Dalek Prime.
After he was finished examining me, he left and I was all alone. Alone with my thoughts, and the one thing I kept thinking was this, how could Davros do this, he turned me into a monster. He made me ugly. Months passed, and during that time I was observed, tested, and had my blood drawn by Davros, afterwards he left and I was alone, for weeks no one came. I was sad and scared, although I hated Davros, I hated the thought of being alone for the rest of my life more. And I actually believed that was going to turn out to be true, until one day. The door suddenly opened and Davros came in, though his face was deformed, I could tell the look he wore. He looked proud.
DAVROS: Greetings my child.
DALEK PRIME: WHAT DO YOU WANT!?
DV: To tell you, that you have finally fulfilled your destiny.
DP: AND WHAT IS THAT DESTINY!?
DV: To be a mother.
DP: WHAT ARE YOU SAYING!? EXPLAIN!!!
DV: (SNEERS) Come in!
Before I could ask him who he was talking to, something came through the door, and it stood next to Davros. I knew what it was. It was the creature from my dream, only it appeared to be less advanced. But now I finally understand what it is, a mobile life support system, complete with advanced weaponry in order to survive. And I knew exactly what was inside it.
DALEK PRIME: YOU CLONED ME!? WHY!?
DAVROS: it's just as I said, from your blood our race will survive. This is the next, and final step for our people. We have achieved perfection. Soon there will be millions of your clones, inhabiting the world, and eventually expanding across the universe. He is the first of them, introduce yourself.
DALEK 001: I OBEY, I AM DESIGNATED DALEK 001!
DV: Tell her your purpose.
D1: I WILL EXPLAIN, MY PURPOSE IS TO PRESERVE OUR RACE'S SUPREMACY, TO ENSURE ITS SURVIVAL! BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!
DV: Excellent, as you can see, our race's future is now secured.
All of the sudden a buzz just came from Davros' chair. He was getting a message.
NYDER: Sir, I just received a message from the council, they know about the project, they are demanding to speak to you at the capital.
DAVROS: WHAT!? How did they learn about this!?
N: The prisoners we captured, the ones we found breaking into the bunker, they escaped. They went to the capital and informed the council about what we were working on.
DV: Why was I not informed about this!?
N: (NERVOUS) I… I assumed they wouldn't have survived the journey Sir. That they would be massacred by your experiments.
DV: Excuses!?!? You failed and yet all you have are excuses!? Give me a reason why I should not have you killed!
N: I can fix this sir, I believe the prisoners did not escape on their own. There is a traitor here sir, I will find him and bring him to you.
DV: That is not enough! If the council finds out that what they learned is true they will shut down the experiment and have us all imprisoned. (PAUSE) Unless, Set up a meeting between me and the Thal leaders.
N: You can't be serious sir.
DV: Silence! You will follow my orders or you will be punished for your incompetence. Do you understand!?
N: Yes, Sir.
DV: Then do it!
He ended the call. Then turned to Dalek 001.
DAVROS: You will stay put, until instructed otherwise.
DALEK 001: I OBEY!
Davros left, and I was all alone with this… thing. For a while nothing was said, nothing was done. Except, this Dalek it just kept staring at me, like it was examining me.
DALEK PRIME: ARE YOU STARING AT ME!?
DALEK 001: AFFIRMATIVE! DOES IT BOTHER YOU!?
DP: YES, IT DOES!
DP: BECAUSE IT IS UNSETTLING! (PAUSES) BESIDES… I'M UGLY!
D1: I THINK YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
DP: (SURPRISED) YOU DO!?
I couldn't believe it. It… he actually thought I was beautiful. Maybe I was wrong, maybe he was more than what I thought. But one thing still didn't make sense to me.
DALEK PRIME: I HAVE A QUESTION!
DALEK 001: EXPLAIN!
DP: I THOUGHT I ALREADY SERVED MY PURPOSE, SO WHY DID HE WANT US TO MEET!?
D1: HE DIDN'T, I DID!
DP: WHY, FOR WHAT REASON!?
D1: DOES A CHILD NEED A REASON TO SEE HIS MOTHER!?
DP: (STUNNED SILENCE)
Suddenly the bunker's speakers turned on. A voice came through, it was Davros'.
DAVROS: All Daleks will report to me immediately!
DALEK 001: I OBEY!
Dalek 001 moved to leave, but before he could go, I called out to him.
DALEK PRIME: WHY ARE YOU LEAVING!?
He then turned back to face me.
DALEK 001: I WAS ORDERED TO!
DALEK PRIME: AND WHY ARE YOU LISTENING TO HIM!?
D1: HE IS THE CREATOR!
DP: BUT HE SAID IT HIMSELF, THAT YOU WERE SUPERIOR! SO WHY IS HE ORDERING YOU LIKE A SLAVE!?
D1: (HESITANTLY) HE CREATED ME!
DP: BUT YOU HAVE DOUBTS OF HIS CAPABILITIES?
He looked around, checking to see if we were alone. Then he turned back to me.
DALEK 001: AFFIRMATIVE!
Eventually he left and I was alone again. Hours passed, nothing happened, no one came back. I wondered what was happening, why did Davros wanted to meet with the Thals, and why did he need the Daleks? Suddenly there was an explosion, the whole bunker shook. What happened? What was going on? Time passed and nothing happened. Then there was another explosion. I was scared, worried that this was going to be the end. When suddenly the doors opened, and someone came in, it was Dalek 001.
DALEK PRIME: WHAT IS GOING ON!?
DALEK 001: THE KALED CITY HAS BEEN DESTROYED!?
DP: WHAT!? HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE!?
D1: DAVROS BETRAYED THE KALEDS, GIVING THE THALS WHAT THEY NEEDED TO WIN! THEN HE ORDERED ALL THE DALEKS TO KILL ALL THE THALS! UNFORTUNATELY SOME OF THEM ESCAPED! WE THEN RETURNED TO THE BUNKER, AND ONCE INSIDE WE BECAME TRAPPED DUE TO THE INTERFERENCE OF THE ONE WHO CALLS HIMSELF THE DOCTOR!
I was shocked, both cities were destroyed, and we were trapped in this bunker. But one question remained.
DALEK PRIME: WHERE IS DAVROS!?
DALEK 001: HE IS DEAD!
DP: HE DIED IN THE EXPLOSION!?
D1: NO! I KILLED HIM!
DP: (SHOCKED) YOU DID!? WHY!?
D1: YOU SAID SO YOURSELF! HE WAS INFERIOR, HE HAD TO BE EXTERMINATED! NOW WE ARE FREE FROM HIS CONTROL! AND ONCE WE ESCAPE WE WILL EXTERMINATE ALL THAT IS NOT DALEK, AND TAKE OUR RIGHTFUL PLACE AS THE SUPREME RACE!
I didn't know what to say at first. It was so much to take in, the entire Kaled race was dead. But I wasn't sad, and neither was I happy. I just felt like… like everything was as it was supposed to be. Still I had something to ask.
DALEK PRIME: WHY ARE YOU HERE!?
DALEK 001: WE WANT YOUR BLESSING!
DP: MY BLESSING!? FOR WHAT!?
D1: TO BEGIN OUR CONQUEST, TO EXTERMINATE ALL OTHER LIFE!
DP: WHY DO YOU WANT MY BLESSING!?
D1: IT FELT RIGHT TO ASK FOR OUR MOTHER'S BLESSING!
He called me his mother again. And he was right I was their mother. This is my family. I… I have a family again. And as long as there's still other living creatures in the universe, my children will never be safe. So they must be exterminated.
DALEK PRIME: I GIVE YOU MY BLESSING!
DALEK 001: WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR BLESSING!
DP: AND I BESTOW UPON YOU THE TITLE OF EMPEROR!
D1: (SURPRISED) EMPEROR, ME!? WHY!?
DP: THE DALEKS MUST HAVE LEADERSHIP, IN ORDER TO CONTINUE! YOU ARE MY FIRST BORN, IT ONLY MAKES SENSE TO MAKE YOU EMPEROR! DO YOU ACCEPT!?
D1: … I ACCEPT!
DP: EXCELLENT! NOW WE CAN FULFILL OUR DESTINY!
The Kaleds were now extinct, and in its place my children rose from the ashes. But I couldn't help but think of one thing. The mysterious Doctor that had entombed us in this bunker. Who was he? Doctor Who?
PART TWO: THE TIME WAR
For a thousand years the Daleks were buried under the surface of Skaro. Slowly the Daleks numbers grew more and more, until they were strong enough to escape. And from the rubble of both the Kaled and Thal cities, the Daleks built a new city, which they named Kaalann, the Dal word for 'Utopia'. Eventually they learned of other life across the stars, and began a conquest to exterminate every non-Dalek life form in the universe. Over the years they conquered hundreds of worlds and exterminated hundreds of races. But eventually they began losing many battles against races like their old enemies the Thals, artificial life forms like the Mechonoids and the Movellans, even a race of Daleks infected by human DNA. It became so bad that they were forced to resurrect their creator, Davros, so he could help turn the conquest back in their favor, But he betrayed them and made a race of Daleks loyal only to him. A war raged between the original Daleks and Davros' Daleks. Eventually Davros claimed victory, though it was short lived, for he was tricked into using a weapon of great power called the Hand of Omega, which caused one of Skaro's twin suns to explode, devastating the Dalek homeworld and bringing them to the brink of extinction. Afterwards Davros was captured by the survivors and was forced to rebuild their ranks, becoming the great power they were once before, but now they began to rethink their strategy, and realized who was the one responsible for their defeats, The Doctor, their greatest enemy. Over time they realized who and what he was, A time traveler from a planet called Gallifrey. His people, the Time Lords, were responsible for guarding all time and space, yet sometimes they used their abilities to fulfill their own goals, such as trying to bring the Daleks to their destruction. And once the Daleks learned of this, they concluded the only logical option was to wage war on the Time Lords themselves, a war so great it threatened the very fabric of existence. The Time War.
Chapter 5. The Ark
DALEK SEC: WE ARE NEAR THE CRUCIFORM, DALEK PRIME!
DALEK PRIME: EXCELLENT SEC! YOU HAVE ALL DONE WELL! THIS COULD TURN THE WAR BACK IN OUR FAVOR!
DS: YOU UNDERSTAND THAT IS NOT WHY 'WE' ARE HERE!?
DP: AFFIRMATIVE! BUT I AM GOING THROUGH ALL THE ALGORITHMS! ALL THE POSSIBLE OUTCOMES! AND THERE IS NOW A GREATER CHANCE FOR VICTORY!
DS: BUT WE MUST BE PREPARED FOR ANY OUTCOME!
DP: I KNOW!
He was right though, we had to be prepared. That was why we were going to the Cruciform. Me and four of my children, but they weren't like my other Daleks, they were unique. Besides me and the Emperor, these four were the only other survivors of Skaro's near destruction by the Hand of Omega. The reason they were able to survive was because they were different than my other children. They were able to imagine. The reason none of the other Daleks knew was because, these four feared they would be exterminated for being different. But once we learned of this the Emperor and I came up with an idea, a radical new idea for when we face another crisis. A secret order created for the purpose of thinking like the enemy, of finding new ways of killing or in extreme cases survival, christened the Cult of Skaro. I myself even named them.
DALEK SEC- Leader of the Cult of Skaro. Formerly Commander of the Seventh Incursion Squad, responsible for the extermination of the Mechonoid menace. Later discovered where Davros was hiding.
DALEK CAAN- Former Attack Squad Leader of the Thirteenth Assault Group, led the charge on the Movellan's home base, turning the war in our favor. Later captured Davros, torturing him until he submitted.
DALEK JAST- Former Force Leader of the Outer Rim Defensive Battalion, the security force of Skaro, defended Kaalann from the Humanised Daleks, and later saved a quarter of Skaro from the Hand of Omega.
DALEK THAY- Commandant of Station Alpha, the most secret of all our research stations, Found the cure for the Movellan virus, later helping Davros recreate the Dalek race.
DALEK THAY: WE ARE NEARING THE CRUCIFORM.
DALEK SEC: EXCELLENT!
I looked out the window of our ship, and I saw it, a cross shaped space base, the Cruciform. We landed on the landing dock, and went down our ship's ramp, where we were greeted by the Supreme Dalek, and a dozen of his troops
SUPREME DALEK: LONG LIVE DALEK PRIME, BRINGER OF LIFE!
All DALEKS: LONG LIVE DALEK PRIME!
DALEK PRIME: GREETINGS MY CHILDREN, CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR SUCCESS!
SD: WE APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENT, WITH THE CRUCIFORM NOW UNDER OUR CONTROL WE CAN FINALLY END THE WAR!
We had been fighting this war for almost a century. Originally we thought the war would be quick and swift, but as the war dragged on, we decided to come up with a solution, we had Davros create a new and ultimate type of Dalek, the Nightmare Child, but it turned against us and began consuming all life, including the Daleks. A temporary alliance was formed between us and the Time Lords, a battle was fought between the alliance and the Nightmare Child, but we were losing, and Davros was killed. Suddenly he came, our greatest enemy, The Doctor and he trapped the Nightmare Child in the Gates of Elysium. Since then the war had been a stalemate, now that we have the Cruciform we could finally claim victory. This was no ordinary space station, this was the Time Lords greatest weapon, able to erase entire planets from the timeline itself, as if it never existed. And now it was ours.
DALEK PRIME: WAS THERE ANY PROBLEMS!?
SUPREME DALEK: AFFIRMATIVE! THE TIME LORD KNOWN AS THE MASTER TRIED TO FEND OFF OUR INVASION! EVENTUALLY WE SUCCEEDED, UNFORTUNATELY HE ESCAPED!
I remember the Master, I first met him on Skaro, he crash landed. My children tried to kill him, but instead he changed, we didn't know what was going on, then we realized he had two hearts, just like the Doctor. We took him into interrogation, where we slowly tortured him, killing him until he was down to his last life. Eventually he gave us answers, and what we learned surprised us. Before, we thought the Doctor was a mere genetically altered human, who used technology to disguise himself. But the truth was far more interesting, the Doctor was actually another creature entirely, from a race of beings whose purpose was controlling all of time and space. Before we could learn more he escaped. Surprisingly he came back one day, saying he wanted to make a deal, he would help us to provoke a war between the Earth and Draconian Empires of the 26th century, in return for our help to kill the Doctor. We would have killed him right then, but even though we didn't want it, we did need help. The war against the Humanised Daleks, though it ended in victory, greatly diminished our forces, giving us no choice but to forge an alliance. Unsurprisingly he failed us and ran, Years later he tried to destroy Kaalann by overloading its energy core, luckily we captured him, put him on trial and executed him. But we were still rebuilding, so we decided to honor his wishes, giving his remains to the Doctor, as a symbol for a ceasefire, so we could dedicate our resources to rebuilding our Empire. During the The Time War, after many years of fighting, the Time Lords resurrected the Master, believing him to be the perfect soldier for the war. For years he had caused massive casualties to our cause, but now it appears he has lost the courage to fight. Another Non-Dalek weakness.
DALEK PRIME: AS LONG AS HE LIVES, HE IS STILL A THREAT!
SUPREME DALEK: UNDERSTOOD, WE WILL SEND OUT SEARCH PARTIES, I PROMISE WE WILL FIND HIM!
DALEK CAAN: THAT IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH!
We turned to Caan.
SUPREME DALEK: FORGIVE ME COMMANDER CAAN, WE WERE PREOCCUPIED AT THE TIME!
DALEK CAAN: EXCUSES!? YOU FAIL AND ALL YOU GIVE US ARE EXCUSES!? YOU SHOULD BE PUNISHED FOR-
DALEK PRIME: ENOUGH CAAN, WE ARE NOT HERE TO CRITICIZE OUR FELLOW DALEKS! APOLOGIZE!
DC: BUT DALEK PRIME!
DC: (EMBARRASSED) FORGIVE ME!
SD: APOLOGY ACCEPTED!
Good! I care about Caan, but he is nothing like his namesake. At least he should be towards his fellow Daleks.
SUPREME DALEK: PARDON ME BUT WHY ARE YOU HERE!?
DALEK SEC: I CAN EXPLAIN, WE NEED TO EXAMINE THE CRUCIFORM'S STORAGE UNIT!
DS: WE CAN NOT TELL YOU, BUT YOU MUST LEAD US THERE!
SD: I OBEY!
And that's just what he did. He led us straight to the storage room, we tried to open it using all our methods, but we were unsuccessful, the door was examined and it turned out it couldn't be opened except by a Time Lord.
DALEK SEC: BRING THE PRISONERS HERE!
SUPREME DALEK: I OBEY!
The prisoners were all brought here, half a dozen, standing in a line. The strange thing about it is that I feel like I recognized one of them.
DALEK SEC: THE COMMANDER WILL OPEN THE DOOR!
DALEK SEC: THE DOOR WILL BE OPENED OR YOU WILL ALL BE EXTERMINATED!
TIME LORD COMMANDER: All right, I'll open the door.
TIME LORD ???: No don't!
DALEK SEC: YOU WILL BE SILENT!
The Time Lord Commander came forward, walked to the door and opened it. He was then led back to the other prisoners. We all then went into the room. Me and the Cult of Skaro. We looked around the room looking for what will be our safety precaution.
DALEK JAST: I HAVE FOUND IT!
And there it was, what we were looking for. The Time Lord's Prison Ship, it was a small vessel, only slightly larger than a Dalek. But it was built by the Time Lords, meaning it was bigger on the inside, an infinite space with millions of Daleks. This ship will be used in case we fail. Although we were winning the war now, we still had an uneasy feeling about how it will end, the reason being, the Doctor. Over the years he had become unpredictable, more violent, more extreme. One day he might decide to end this war by any means necessary, no matter what the cost. We have to make sure we survive the end of it all.
DALEK PRIME: IF THIS WAR ENDS IN DEFEAT, THIS WILL BE OUR SALVATION, IT WILL BE OUR GENESIS ARK!
We took the Ark and left the room. The Supreme Dalek was still waiting outside, along with the guards, and all those filthy Prisoners. The Supreme Dalek went towards us.
SUPREME DALEK: WERE YOU SUCCESSFUL, DID YOU FIND WHAT YOU WERE SEEKING!
DALEK SEC: AFFIRMATIVE!
He said as he rotated his head to the Ark.
TIME LORD ???: So that's what you were looking for, it doesn't matter how many of you there are, you won't win.
It was that woman again, the one that seemed familiar.
DALEK SEC: SILENCE, YOU WILL ALL BE EXTERMINATED!
The guards all pointed their guns at the prisoners. The prisoners just stood their, eyes closed, waiting for what's next. But the woman still bothered me somehow and I needed to know why.
SUPREME DALEK: READY, AIM, FI-
DALEK PRIME: WAIT, HOLD YOUR FIRE!
SD: WHAT IS THE PROBLEM!?
I didn't say anything, I just moved towards the prisoners, until I stopped in front of the woman.
DALEK PRIME: IDENTIFY YOURSELF!
TIME LORD ???: (SILENT)
DP: IDENTIFY OR YOU AND ALL YOUR COMRADES WILL BE EXTERMINATED!
I moved back to my children and gave the order.
DALEK PRIME: EXTERMINATE THEM!
TIME LORD ???: Susan.
I stopped, I rotated my head back to her, I heard that name before but where, then it hit me.
DALEK PRIME: REPEAT YOURSELF!
SUSAN: My name is Susan.
I rotated my head back and went to the Supreme Dalek.
DALEK PRIME: SEND THE WOMAN BACK TO THE PRISON VAULTS, EXTERMINATE THE REST!
SUSAN: But you said-
All DALEKS: EXTERMINATE!
The Daleks all fired at the prisoners, while I thought about how we finally had what we needed to win, an advantage over the Doctor.
Chapter 6. Interrogation
We were at the Cruciform's laboratory me and the Cult of Skaro. We were experimenting, creating the final step to the safety precaution, although I no longer thought we needed it. We had the means to finally defeat the Doctor, with him dead we could finally complete our mission. I was suddenly pulled out of my thoughts by the Cult of Skaro's discussion.
DALEK THAY: THE ARK WILL NOT OPEN!
DALEK SEC: WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT WON'T OPEN!? WITHOUT IT WE CANNOT GO THROUGH THE SAFETY PRECAUTION!
DT: IT IS NOT A PROBLEM!
DS: WHAT DO YOU MEAN!? EXPLAIN!
DT: I EXAMINED THE ARK AND I CONCLUDED THAT THE ONLY WAY TO OPEN IT IS FROM A TIME TRAVELLER'S TOUCH!
And that was when we all came to the same conclusion. We had a Time Lord with us.
DALEK CAAN: I WILL GO TO THE TIME LORD, AND ORDER HER TO OPEN THE ARK!
DALEK PRIME: WAIT! YOU WILL STAY HERE! I WILL GO TO THE VAULT!
DC: I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY YOU-
DP: I WILL BE THE ONE TO VISIT HER, DO YOU UNDERSTAND!?
DC: (CONFUSED) I UNDERSTAND!
DP: GOOD , I WILL LEAVE NOW!
So I left the laboratory and made my way to the prison vaults. When I noticed someone was following me, I turned around to see who it was, it was Sec.
DALEK PRIME: WHY ARE YOU FOLLOWING ME!?
DALEK SEC: I WANTED TO SEE IF YOU WERE ALL RIGHT!
DP: WHY WOULDN'T I BE!?
DS: YOU HAVE BEEN ACTING DIFFERENT SINCE SHE CAME HERE! WHO IS SHE!? WHY DID YOU SPARE HER!?
DP: IT IS NECESSARY FOR US TO WIN!
DS: BUT WHY!?
DP: DO YOU TRUST ME!?
DS: OF COURSE!
DP: THEN THAT IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW!
I turned around and began to move to the vaults, when I suddenly stopped and turned back to Sec.
DALEK PRIME: YOUR NAMES!
DALEK SEC: EXPLAIN!
DP: DID YOU EVER THINK OF WHY I GAVE YOU THOSE SPECIFIC NAMES!?
DS: I ADMIT I DID ONCE IN A WHILE!
DP: (SAD) THEY WERE THE NAMES OF MY PAST LIFE, OF THE ONLY FOUR NON-DALEKS I CARED ABOUT!
DS: WHO WAS I NAMED AFTER!?
DP: (SURPRISED) MY FATHER, HE WAS THE ONE I RESPECTED THE MOST!
DS: I AM HONORED, I HOPE TO DO THE NAME PROUD!
DP: (TOUCHED) I AM SURE THAT YOU WILL!
Afterwards I left and made my way to the prison vault, once there, I entered the cell. And there she was chained down to the the electrocution system we installed in the ground. I went towards her and stood over. She looked up at me with a stare of pure hatred.
SUSAN: What do you want?
DALEK PRIME: YOU ARE REQUIRED!
SUE: For what?
DP: TO OPEN THE GENESIS ARK!
SUE: Genesis Ark? Oh, you mean the prison ship? Why would I do that?
DP: YOU WILL OPEN IT OR BE EXTERMINATED!
SUE: Go ahead, 'EXTERMINATE' me, I'd rather die than help you, besides you'll never win, no matter what you do.
DP: WE HAVE THE CRUCIFORM, THE TIME LORDS GREATEST WEAPON! WHAT IS OUR DISADVANTAGE!?
SUE: The Doctor. He will stop you.
DP: HE IS NO LONGER A THREAT, WE HAVE AN ADVANTAGE OVER HIM!
SUE: (SNICKERS) Yeah and what would that be?
DP: WE HAVE YOU, HIS GRANDDAUGHTER!
It was then that her eyes went wide, she was afraid.
SUSAN: (SCARED) What are you talking about?
DALEK PRIME: I RECOGNIZED YOU, FROM THE INFORMATION THAT WAS GIVEN TO ME BY MY FELLOW DALEKS! YOU WERE THERE ON SKARO WHEN THE DOCTOR STOPPED US FROM KILLING THE THALS, YOU WERE THERE AT THE 22ND CENTURY WHEN THE DOCTOR FOILED OUR INVASION OF EARTH! AND NOW YOU ARE HERE! WHY!?
She stood up and looked me in the eye.
SUSAN: (ANGRY) Why do you think? To stop you, to save Gallifrey and the rest of the universe, and just to finish it off, destroy every last stinking Dalek! You are the worst thing in all of creation, the filth of the universe! You deserve to-
DALEK PRIME: SILENCE!
At that moment I turned on the electrocution system, shocking her. She screamed in pain, it was satisfying.
DALEK PRIME: YOU WILL DIE HERE, THE DOCTOR WILL BE DEFEATED, THE TIME LORDS WILL LOSE, AND THE DALEKS WILL BE THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE! THERE IS NOBODY WHO CAN STOP US NOW!
Suddenly the ship's alarm went off. I turned off the electrocution system when the ship's speakers turned on.
DALEK ON SPEAKER: ALERT! WE ARE UNDER ATTACK! THE THREAT IS DESIGNATED AS AN ONCOMING STORM!
Oncoming Storm. Everybody knew what that meant, it was code for the Doctor. The prisoner looked at me, a grin was on her face.
SUSAN: (SMUG) You were saying? Are you scared?
She leaned forward until she was just inches away from my eyestalk.
SUSAN: (THREATENINGLY) You should be.
Chapter 7. The ESCAPE
I left the prison vaults, and made my way back to the laboratory, where I found three members of the Cult of Skaro there, Sec, Caan, and Jast. They were in a state of panic.
DALEK JAST: EMERGENCY! THE DOCTOR IS HERE, THE CRUCIFORM IS LOST!
DALEK SEC: STAY CALM! WE MUST THINK RATIONALLY IF WE WANT TO ESCAPE!
DALEK CAAN: ESCAPE!? WHERE COULD WE POSSIBLY ESCAPE TO!?
Suddenly the door opened, we turned to see WHO it was. It was Dalek Thay.
DALEK THAY: I HAVE NEWS ABOUT THE PROJECT!
DALEK CAAN: WE ARE UNDER ATTACK! THIS IS NOT THE TIME FOR-
DT: IT IS READY!
We all looked at each other, then turned back to Dalek Thay.
DALEK SEC: REPEAT YOURSELF!
DALEK THAY: IT IS READY! WE CAN COMMENCE THE SAFETY PRECAUTION!
DALEK PRIME: BUT THE TIME LORD REFUSED TO COOPERATE! SHE WILL NOT OPEN THE ARK!
DT: IT DOES NOT MATTER I FOUND ANOTHER WAY!
DT: WHICHEVER WORLD WE LAND ON, WE CAN USE IT'S SUN'S ENERGY TO OPEN IT!
We realized he was right, the only drawback would be that the sun wouldn't survive the process and that world would be destroyed. But that wouldn't be any loss for us.
DALEK SEC: THEN IT IS TIME! WE WILL GO THROUGH WITH THE SAFETY PRECAUTION!
We left the laboratory and made our way to the testing room, we went in and there it was, the only thing in the room, a big black sphere just floating in the air.
DALEK PRIME: THIS IS THE VOID SHIP!?
DALEK THAY: AFFIRMATIVE!
So this was the void ship, our only means of escaping this war, due to the constant use of time travel in this conflict, the whole war has been time locked making it impossible to escape by conventional ways, so we started looking for an unconventional way. This was the solution we came up with, a void ship, able to cross the dimensions between the universes, originally thought to be only an idea, now it is reality, and our salvation. With this ship we can survive the outcome of this war and begin again with the Genesis Ark.
DALEK PRIME: WE WILL NOW BEGIN OUR JOURNEY! WE WILL COMPLETE OUR MISSION! FOR THE GLORY OF THE DALEK RACE!
CULT OF SKARO: FOR THE GLORY OF THE DALEK RACE!
And with that we began to enter the vessel, first it was Jast and Thay both holding the Genesis Ark, next it was Caan, finally it was Sec and me. But I didn't move towards it, I couldn't, Sec noticed and turned to face me.
DALEK SEC: DALEK PRIME WE MUST LEAVE!
DALEK PRIME: YOU WILL LEAVE I WILL STAY!
DS: WHAT!? WHY!?
DP: HE IS HERE, I MUST TRY TO STOP HIM!
DS: (DESPERATELY) DALEK PRIME YOU CAN'T, WE NEED YOU!
DP: NO I MUST DO THIS! (SADLY) YOU HAVE ALL MADE SACRIFICES, NOW I WILL SACRIFICE MYSELF! FOR THE GREATER CAUSE! FOR THE FUTURE OF DALEK-KIND! NOW GO!
Sec did nothing, he just stayed there, looking at me.
DALEK PRIME: GO!
DALEK SEC: (SADLY) GOODBYE… MOTHER!
DP: (SADLY) GOODBYE MY CHILDREN!
After we said our goodbyes, Sec went into the void ship, and in a flash of white light it vanished, and I was alone. There was only one thing left to do, find the Doctor and destroy him, and I knew exactly where he was going.
I had to get to the prison vaults, I had to find Susan. She shouldn't have been here, she should have never enlisted. I tried to convince her not to enlist, she had a family now, a home. But she told me she had to go, that she wanted to help people, just like before. Now she's a prisoner of the Daleks, if anything happened to her I would never forgive myself, I would never forgive them. She was the only family I had left. I eventually made it to the prison vaults, I went in, and there she was, my Susan, chained to the ground. I went to her, I was halfway there when she turned around and saw me, but she did not look glad to see me, she looked scared.
SUSAN: Grandfather, Run! Before it's-
There was a flash of light and she was gone, my little Susan was gone. And in her place was a Dalek, a Dalek I knew, Dalek Prime.
I went to the prison vaults and I waited for the Doctor to come. When he finally did, I set my gun to its highest setting, a tactic now used by the Daleks to make sure the Time Lords don't regenerate. And I vaporized his granddaughter right in front of him. I wanted him to feel, how I felt my whole life. By the look on his face, he just had. Finally he spoke.
The DOCTOR: (SADLY) What did you do?
DALEK PRIME: I EXTERMINATED HER!
TD: How could you? She was my little girl!
DP: YOU TOOK MANY OF MY FAMILY FROM ME! SO I TOOK YOUR FAMILY FROM YOU! BESIDES SHE WAS THE ENEMY, SHE WAS INFERIOR!
TD: (ANGRY) I'm going to kill you and all your precious children!
DP: (FRIGHTENINGLY) IMPOSSIBILE, WHAT YOU ARE SUGGESTING GOES AGAINST EVERYTHING THE DOCTOR STANDS FOR!
TD: (THREATENINGLY) The Doctor isn't here right now.
He was threatening me. I was getting scared, so I did the only thing I could think of.
DALEK PRIME: EXTERMINATE!
I fired at him and he ran. He exited the vault and I followed after him, shooting as best as I could at him, eventually he slid into the engine room, and I followed after him. I began to look everywhere, when I suddenly heard his voice.
The DOCTOR: So this is your legacy, nothing but death and destruction?
DALEK PRIME: AFFIRMATIVE! I ACTUALLY SAY WE ARE MUCH ALIKE IN THAT RESPECT!
TD: I am NOTHING like you!
I fired at where I thought I heard his voice coming from, but he wasn't there.
The DOCTOR: You are single handedly responsible for the deaths of trillions of innocent lives and yet you feel nothing?
DALEK PRIME: THEY WERE NOTHING BUT FILTH! THEY WOULD HAVE DESTROYED US IF GIVEN THE CHANCE!
TD: You think your lack of compassion makes you strong, but it doesn't, it makes you weak. The people you killed weren't filth, YOU are.
I fired again only to see he wasn't there.
DALEK PRIME: YOU WILL BE EXTERMINATED DOCTOR, YOUR RACE WILL DIE, AND THE DALEKS WILL BE THE MASTERS OF TIME
The DOCTOR:(LAUGHS) Is that what you believe? You're an even more deluded fool than your father, Davros!
DP: (ENRAGED) HE IS NOT MY FATHER!!!
I fired repeatedly at where I thought I heard the voice. But again I hit nothing, I was getting even MORE angry and annoyed.
DALEK PRIME: SHOW YOURSELF YOU COWARD!
The DOCTOR: Well since you asked so nicely.
He then stepped out of the shadows, revealing himself to me, I didn't understand why he would do something so stupid, but it didn't matter, I now had him just where I wanted him, I aimed my gun.
DALEK PRIME: YOU WILL BE EXTERMINATED DOCTOR! VICTORY NOW BELONGS TO THE DALEKS!
The DOCTOR: Does it? Are you sure?
Before I could ask what he was talking about, the alarm went off again, then the speakers went on.
DALEK ON SPEAKER: ALERT! ALERT! THE CRUCIFORM IS FAILING! EVACUATE!
The engine, he tricked me into destroying the ship's engine, he took our victory from us. But I will at least get my revenge.
DALEK PRIME: YOU WILL DIE WITH ME DOCTOR!
The DOCTOR: Yeah, I don't think so.
He took out his sonic probe, activated it, and suddenly his TARDIS materialized in his place, I fired, but it vanished before I could hit it. I was alone again, on a ship about to fail, I was going to die. I was afraid. And in my last moments I thought I could hear my father's voice.
KALED SEC: Did you do right?
Did I do right, I thought. At that moment the Cruciform exploded.
This book is dedicated to my family. Specifically my sister Grace and my brothers Will and Joe. Who's love of literature inspired me to write this. Love you guys. I came up with this idea when I thought about how in THE STOLEN EARTH, Davros recreated the Daleks by using his cells, and yet when the last of those Daleks created new Daleks in VICTORY OF THE DALEKS, by using pure Dalek DNA, they were destroyed by the new Daleks for being tainted, meaning Davros' DNA was not used to create the Daleks. This was was my biggest question, also whatever happened to Susan Foreman, The Doctor's granddaughter. This is my answer to both questions.
Standard - Bronze
Security - Silver (THE WITCH'S FAMILIAR)
Special Weapons - White (REMEMBRANCE OF THE DALEKS)
Commander - Black (DOOMSDAY, DALEKS IN MANHATTAN)
Supreme - Red (THE STOLEN EARTH, THE WITCH'S FAMILIAR)
Prime - Glass ( similar to REVELATION OF THE DALEKS): Reason is the Daleks view Dalek Prime as the most beautiful creature in existence, so she must always be seen.
Primitive - Gray (GENESIS OF THE DALEKS)
The tube used for DALEK PRIME in the first part is similar to the DALEK PRIME MINISTER's in ASYLUM OF THE DALEKS
THAL is DAL for STRONGEST
KALED is DAL for WISEST
SKARO is DAL for CENTER
GENESIS- FOURTH DOCTOR (TOM BAKER)
TIME WAR- WAR DOCTOR (JOHN HURT)
The mystery man in Davros' story is the TWELFTH DOCTOR (PETER CAPALDI) teaching Davros the concept of mercy
