Chapter 752 Emperor Mechanic!
The Light Fox spaceships flew toward the Planet Macipher port. Inside the cabin, Colin was speaking to his subordinates.
“We will first land in a sub-city. You guys will go and find a local shipyard immediately. Have them transport our spaceships over and repair them as soon as possible. Money isn’t an issue… As for the rest of us, we will be finding a relatively hidden spot in the sub-city to rest.”
The others replied disorderly.
“Don’t worry,” Orozen said lazily, “Planet Macipher is a neutral planet. No one will trouble us. The Star Pupil Holy Race doesn’t even know the direction we escaped in. There’s no one chasing after us, so we’re basically safe. We just have to stay one or two days on Planet Macipher and wait for our spaceships to be repaired. Then, we can take the Evolution Cube back.”
Speaking of the Evolution Cube, desire appeared in Orozen’s eyes as he subconsciously glanced at the tiny black cube hanging on Colin’s neck.
Noticing his glance, Colin said, “We will figure out how to use this thing after we leave the Shattered Star Ring. Don’t even think about it now.”
With such a treasure in hand, everyone was tempted, but no one had any underlying thoughts. They just wanted to experience the Evolution Cube’s effects at most.
Although the Evolution Cube was a Universal Treasure, it was not worth betraying EsGod for.
As EsGod had the data of the Evolutionary Civilization, they knew a thing or two about the Evolution Cube as well, so they did not have any unnecessary expectations for it. After all, even with the Star Pupil Holy Race having so many Calamity Grades, Psyker was still the only Beyond Grade A.
However, the fact that using the Evolution Cube would make them stronger was an indisputable truth.
This time, the spaceships entered the port, completed the simple procedures, and descended toward one of the subcities on Planet Macipher.
As soon as they left their spaceships, Colin and the rest started moving. They found a relatively unknown shipyard and paid them to repair their spaceships.
The Light Fox spaceships were equipped with top-notch hyperdrive engines. It only took them a few days to travel the distance that would take normal spaceship months. Otherwise, they would not have arrived at Planet Macipher, which was at the edge of the Shattered Star Ring, in just ten days from the Star Pupil Holy Race’s territory. They insisted on repairing the spaceships because the speed of the Light Fox spaceships would save them a ton of time while traveling. They definitely would not change their spaceships unless they had absolutely no other choice.
As they had escaped as fast as they could, they did not know for sure if there were any pursuers behind them.
However, to them, the super high-speed hyperdrive of the Light Fox spaceship was more than enough to get rid of any pursuers. The Star Pupil Holy Race might not even know where they had gone. Of course, the connection between Psyker and the Evolution Cube was a secret, so they did not know that their location had already been exposed.
As for their identities, they were not worried at all. They had stolen the Evolution Cube while using the teleportation ability of the EsGod doppelganger, so the Star Pupil Holy Race did not know what they looked like.
The only time they were exposed was back in the Tyla Civilization, which was already many months ago and had nothing to do with them stealing the Evolution Cube. No one would link the two incidents together. After all, the Star Pupil Holy Race did not announce that the Evolution Cube had been stolen, not even in the local news on Planet Avitan. The secret war was still at the top of the news.
Therefore, to Colin and the others, arriving at the Planet Macipher meant that they already had one foot out of the Shattered Star Ring. They thought that they were completely safe.
As their spaceships were sent for repair, Colin and the others stayed in a hotel in the sub-city.
What they did not know was, the moment they entered Planet Macipher, they were already noticed.
Only half an hour after Psyker’s call…
“The Light Fox spaceships have already appeared…”
Sardeem received the information immediately.
The port entry information throughout Planet Macipher was monitored by him. As soon as Colin’s spaceships entered, they were discovered. Sardeem monitored Colin and the others closely.
They went to Sub-City No.2, found a shipyard there to repair their spaceship, and went to a hostel located at…”
The entire planet was under his surveillance. After locking onto the Light Fox spaceships, Sardeem then monitored Colin and the rest.
He did not recognize them, but after his assistant artificial intelligence searched for a while, he found Orozen’s bounty from the Tyla Civilization.
“A group of wanted criminals? Why is Psyker after them?” Sardeem could not help but imagine. “Could it be that he wants to use this opportunity to establish a good relationship with the Tyla Civilization? It is indeed possible for Psyker to do something like this, but the fact that he’s doing it personally… maybe it’s because he wants to increase his influence?”
Given how much information he lacked, of course, he had no idea that the Evolution Cube had been stolen.
Also, Sardeem would definitely not link the small black cube on Colin’s neck to the gigantic Evolution Cube.
“Psyker just wants me to stall them. Hmm, if not needed, I don’t have to fight them.”
Sardeem pondered for a while and decided not to alarm them.
Instead, he issued a new order to his mechanical low enforcement troops and secretly increased the patrol density of the area around Colin and the others. This would allow him to monitor them even more closely.
Sardeem thought of something else. He called the shipyard that had taken the job to repair the Light Fox spaceships and ordered them to delay the process.
Although this shipyard did not belong to him, with his position on Planet Macipher, he had the power to do this.
“That should be enough. Now, I just have to slowly monitor them…”
Sardeem gave a new order to the control center of the floating city to alert him as soon as Colin and the others did anything abnormal. He then put this matter aside.
As the owner of a planet, he was very busy, so there was no way he was going to stare at the monitors all day long.
After the unpleasant meeting with Sardeem ended, Han Xiao realized that no one chased him away. He completed the job for the afternoon as usual, but when evening came, he received some bad news.
The Cornerstone Summit Corporation had moved him out of the Eternal Light project and did not let him continue participating in this project. He was no longer needed to build the spaceship parts, and the blueprints in his hands were also taken away.
He had already learned all those blueprints, so taking them away did not matter to him. However, the signal given by Sardeem was very clear—he was not going to let Han Xiao have any chance of catching a glimpse of the Eternal Light blueprint.
Sardeem has started to guard against me. If I continue to stay here, I will only become manual labor and will never participate in important projects.
Han Xiao shook his head.
I’ve already got the talent, so there’s no need to continue staying on Planet Macipher. I can leave as soon as I get the Eternal Light blueprint…
Although Sardeem had raised his guard against him, Han Xiao already had some plans in mind to steal the remaining core blueprints of Eternal Light.
Speaking of which, Sardeem was the one who had given him the idea.
Initially, Han Xiao could not find out where those core blueprints were hidden in the database of the Cornerstone Summit Corporation, so he was at a dead end. However, after Sardeem actively told him his true identity, he now had a new goal.
It turned out that Sardeem was the actual owner of the Eternal Light blueprint.
This meant that he definitely had an Eternal Light blueprint in his home, so Han Xiao did not need to do anything to the Cornerstone Summit Corporation.
Sardeem’s home was that magnificent floating city base above Planet Macipher.
Han Xiao’s target was to hack Sardeem’s floating city!
Sardeem doesn’t know my true strength. I wonder if he will regret telling me his true identity today… Oh, I almost forgot, he definitely won’t because he will never know I have hacked into his floating city.
If he did not work in the Cornerstone Summit Corporation because of a talent, he would not have attracted Sardeem’s attention. If he did not attract Sardeem’s attention, Sardeem would not have attempted to recruit him. If he was not recruited, he would not have known that Sardeem was the real owner of the Eternal Light blueprint.
It could be said that Sardeem had personally led the way for him.
Han Xiao sneered in his mind.
The floating city was the base of a Grade A+ Armed Branch Mechanic. Compared to the database of the Cornerstone Summit Corporation, its artificial intelligence defense was on a completely different level.
However, Han Xiao was a Virtual Mechanic whose level was even higher than Sardeem. As long as he made sufficient preparations, he would be able to hack into the control panel of the floating city without being noticed.
It’s best to increase my chances even further…
Han Xiao was now level 221. He would trigger the Class Advancement of [Apostle Mechanic] at level 225. His Virtual Technology would be enhanced once again after the Class Advancement.
He had plenty of Experience in his interface. As nothing urgent had happened before, Han Xiao wanted to hoard enough Experience until he could reach level 240. Now that he needed it, he did not wait any longer.
The night on Planet Macipher was as boisterous as the day. The entertainment venues there were open throughout the night. Spaceships flew between tall buildings, leaving colorful flame trails like rainbows in the night sky.
Due to how rich the nightlife was, no one stopped Han Xiao from leaving the Cornerstone Summit Corporation hostel.
He went to the ground port, returned to the hangar that he had rented, walked into the spaceship, and entered the training room. This was to prevent the impact caused by his Class Advancement from attracting unwanted attention.
After closing the door of the training room, Han Xiao opened the interface and spent Experience leveling up without hesitation.
Very soon, he reached level 225 and received the Class Advancement mission of [Apostle Mechanic].
Han Xiao had spent seven years stockpiling Mission Completion Cards, so of course, he still had some. He immediately completed the Class Advancement mission.
The next moment, his brain trembled.
