After hearing about our totally awesome high-tech office fortress many have asked if our headquarters has an Auto-Destruct Sequence like star ships in the Star Trek Franchise as seen in the video above. The Star Trek Next Generation one at 3:05 in the video is the one most similar to ours. The Auto-Destruct is used in Star Trek to destroy the ship, and commit mass suicide rather than allow themselves, and their technology to fall into enemy hands. It’s interesting we’re asked this since being informed years ago that we supposedly travel about the Milky Way Galaxy in our own ship hundreds of years in the future. A beyond-gifted Psychic told us this, and indicated each one of us would still be alive as the next millennium approached! However, we’re not sure if we fully believe this even though some of us are already confirmed Immortals like the Vampire Drake Alexander. Our own Psychic Julia Hathaway simply can’t see that far into the future.
Indeed, Mystic Investigations Headquarters has an Auto-Destruct Mechanism although clearly since we’re on Earth we can escape elsewhere instead of offing ourselves. LOL! The employment of various magics, secret tunnels, or even the roof Heliport allows for our quick escape if an overwhelming force attacks. Of course, there’s always the chance of being surrounded and trapped by dark mystical entities. In addition, some of our more high-tech vehicles with onboard computers have the Destruct Mechanism. Even our personal computers and laptops have Micro Self-Destruct Mechanisms Mission Impossible Style. It’s especially important for anyone in the real paranormal community to have such a thing if for no other reason than to prevent the exposure of the supernatural world to the mainstream media in violation of the Supernatural Secrecy Pact. This is of course common in the top-secret human community as well. Most classified government and private research facilities have auto-destruct mechanisms in place.
Activation Of The Auto-Destruct Sequence
The Mystic Investigations Auto-Destruct Sequence can only be activated from our Central Panic Room hidden in the sub-basement. A small secret room off the Panic Room contains the Auto-Destruct Computer Console. Three people must authorize the destruction of our headquarters, and website as well. I, Xavier Remington President Of Mystic Investigations, Executive Vice-President Drake Alexander, and Vice-President Rebecca Abernathy. If any one of us isn’t available then the next person in the chain of command uses their authorization code only if command authority has been previously ceded to them. For instance, if I’m away on vacation or out of town on business Executive VP Drake Alexander is recognized as the Acting President by our amazing, yet not quite artificially intelligent, computer system that was created by my brother Michael Remington & bionic boy wonder Zack Powers. Some of its components are courtesy of future technology acquired by Michael’s travels through time. For security purposes, we cannot reveal the exact method of self-destruction employed. We will however say it’s a combination of explosives, and metaphysical materials stabilized to make it impossible for any accidental detonation.
Activation of the Auto-Destruct begins when we each place our hand on the black console for palm print scanning which causes an eye scanner to rise up. Once the retinal scan is complete for each person the computer vocally acknowledges the authenticity of our identities as follows:
Computer: “Identity Authenticated. Recognize President Remington, Xavier…..Identity Authenticated. Recognize Executive Vice-President Alexander, Drake…Identity Authenticated. Recognize Vice-President Abernathy, Rebecca.” I then begin the voice recognition command sequence as follows. Although the codes mentioned here aren’t real for security purposes. It is plausible some powerful magical entity could falsely duplicate our identities. That is why we don’t mention other authorization measures here as well.
Xavier Remington: “Initiate Auto-Destruct Sequence. Authorization RemingtonAlpha20B53$L” Yeah I have to say “dollar sign”, or the symbol name out loud! However, no need to differentiate between upper, and lower case letters unless manual code entry into the computer is required.
Computer: “Authorization Accepted! Alexander, Drake do you concur with the initiation of the Auto-Destruct Sequence?”
Drake Alexander: “I concur with the Auto-Destruct Order. Authorization AlexanderBeta66G21&V”
Computer: “Authorization Accepted! Abernathy, Rebecca do you concur with the initiation of the Auto-Destruct Sequence?”
Rebecca Abernathy: “I concur with the Auto-Destruct Order. Authorization AbernathyGamma93H04#K”
Computer: “All Authorizations Have Been Verified, And Accepted. Desired Time Interval Until Destruction Required?”
Xavier Remington:”Set Auto-Destruct Sequence for 33 minutes. Activate Auto-Destruct Sequence Commander359DeltaUF52″ Any amount of time up to 24 hours, or as little as one minute can be set for Auto-Destruct.
Computer: “Auto-Destruct Interval Accepted! Auto-Destruct Is Now Activated! Countdown Begins in 3…2…1. Thirty-Three Minutes Until Auto-Destruct.” At that point dark crimson flashing lights, and an alarm goes off all over the building unless I enter a silent countdown order in advance. Then it will only go off in the Auto-Destruct Chamber and Panic Room.
The April Fool’s Auto Destruct Scare!
We only had to use the Auto-Destruct on April 2nd, 2011 about a year after we moved into our new offices after previously being in the Woodland Springs Library Building. We had just sustained an annoying yet harmless April 1st April Fool’s attack by the jovial jokester himself The April Fool. This included some embarrassing pranks on us and the temporary desecration of our website. However we also got on the diabolical April Anti-Fool’s radar, and he struck us at high Noon while we were eating lunch after cleaning up The April Fool’s mess. The Anti-Fool promptly used mystical powers beyond that of our own witch Rebecca Abernathy, and locked us in our facility. Despite it being daytime the view outside was of a dark forest of horrors that saw various zombies, and monsters pounding, and clawing at our bullet proof windows. The dark diabolical jester set up a series of simulated paranormal pranks of a deadly sort. There simply came a point where we realized that this could go on for eternity since we were trapped in his warped temporal bubble. We would all surely have died eventually!
So the three of us managed to get to the panic room, and Rebecca employed just enough of a temporary magical shielding to block The Fool. She cast a powerful spell that utilized the magic locking us in our facility. Rebecca used The Anti-Fool’s own power to also trap him in here with us! Then we activated the Auto-Destruct Mechanism setting it for one minute. We made sure the alarms bellowed forth through out the facility as we watched The Anti-Fool finally show some fear on a hidden cam feed. Over a loud speaker we told him to leave, and never return or he would die with us. We figured out that The Anti-Fool had placed us in a bubble Universe out of sync with our own reality. Should Mystic Investigations blow up then the bubble Universe would be destroyed taking the Anti-Fool along with it. Theoretically the destruction of his source of magic, which was his Scepter, would revert him to a normal human that would easily die in the blast if the destruction of the Universe didn’t blink him out of existence. Then his soul would have been damned to Hell!
As the countdown to annihilation got to twenty seconds he pleaded with us to end it! Oddly enough as is the case with a great many entities with demonic roots, he has to tell the truth to an extent. In the Anti-Fool’s case ancient lore indicates he must tell the truth when it comes to promises made directly to someone in person. Had that not been the limit we would have demanded his entire reign of April 2nd terror come to an end. Naturally we could have just blown him up but I guess we took the selfish route! After all we had countless employees with families who would miss them. In addition one woman had her baby with her in our offices. So we couldn’t bear to do that just to end the Anti-Fool’s miserable excuse of an existence! Instead we made him promise to never bother Mystic Investigations ever again. Unfortunately we couldn’t make him not promise to return to our Town Of Woodland Springs. That would have had to take place at the Town Hall in the presence of the Mayor for that to work!
Condition Yellow Alert
At seven seconds, and counting I said,”Computer cancel the Auto-Destruct Sequence! Authorization XavierOmega02Z35&K!” The Computer then replied,”Temporarily freezing the Auto-Destruct Sequence at two seconds pending further authorization.” Drake, and Rebecca were then required to enter their cancellation codes before the computer finally said,”The Auto-Destruct Sequence has been cancelled. Auto-Destruction Mechanism powering down, and entering stand-by mode. No further action is required. Mystic Investigations returning to previous Condition Yellow Alert. Amber light then flashed silently as we exited the Panic Room to face the Anti-Fool. He angrily exclaimed,”You pathetic fools think you won! Nobody defeats The April Anti-Fool! Our day of reckoning will manifest, and you will die by the mastery of my marvelous symphony of sinister…” He was cut short when some unseen force manifested his promise that caused him to disappear with a “Noooooooooooooo!”. Our facility returned to our sunny reality, and everything was restored to normal. Unfortunately he merely disappeared from our presence, and wasn’t disabled for the rest of that April 2nd. However we’ve had reports of him from all around the world April 2nd each year. Thus far he’s been smart enough to stay away from Woodland Springs! 🙂
All Clear Condition Green Alert
The Green Alert sounds with a soothing chime after the cancelation of a Red, Yellow, or other danger alerts. It generally lasts for 10 minutes before falling silent with the green light fading away. This lets everyone know that the threat is over beyond a shadow of a doubt! See our Current Condition page for our present status and list of Alerts.
