The story was definitely enjoyable, even though there were quite a few aspects of the story that broke the immersion.
(The presence of a phoenix that is hardly used in the story, when the archaeopteryx would have sufficed if the avian needed to be included at all. EX-702 doesn't attempt to re-interpret what counts as having "identified" "human" sentient life, and just gives up. The program shut-down accelerating when there's absolutely no reason for that to be a feature in the undesired program. The sudden introduction of the raptor's l33t h4x0r 5k!llz, when finding a panel with an 'On' button to press after the shutdown would have been sufficient. Stuff like that.
I did have a long post typed out going into more detail on those, but I definitely did
enjoy the story despite those things. Plus it's clear a lot of love went into writing the story, so I'd much rather not rain on anyone's parade by nitpicking.
On the other side, I loved how EX-702's name became gradually shortened during the shut-down. It was a very nice touch, as was "the doctor is a rusted socket wrench!" being a form of coarse language.
The story was well-written. I just didn't understand why various elements were included/overlooked.
