Initializing.

System configuration: Class 3 Mobile Mining Ship
Ship ID: 9791A S.M.M.S. "Eskridge"
Current time: 18:42:21 EST, 5/17/2142


IMP loaded.

>Holy crap, this place is a mess. Even with half my sensors offline I can tell something bad went down in here. Neural net's down, that's gonna be a BIG problem. At least it looks like the crew is still alive. I'll try to figure out what happened while everyone wakes up.

Crapcrapcrap, this is seriously bad. Um, guys, please check in with me on the main terminal in the common room when you wake up.

Hey, looks like the coffee system is online! I'll start up a fresh pot.

Shit, last time I saw, you were pourin JB down inside its guts.

In fact, Macready, you tell me why IMP ain't fucked up because of you. You seem like just the type to scramble its brains all to hell.

Re: PBF # 21 "Who Goes There?" (In-game posts ONLY, please)
Me and G, we start minin' right round the same time. Damn, back then we were just kids. Earth be dying out when I was growing up, and my momma told me to find myself a good space job and get off dat hellhole. My second assignmen, me and G, we drilled rocks 12 hours straight the first few months. Shit, G and I, as best I figgah, we drilled about as much rock as there is stored away in dem here hulls, all by alls self.

But thingsa changed since G and I started way back when. These new damn IMP computers, comin in and takin over our lives, doin our jobs fo us. Shit now I just stand there and make sure the drill dont fuck up. At least I have more time to rag on G.

Speaking of which, where the fuck he at?

presses intercom button again

G, goddammn it, get yo ass down here muthafucka. I aint cookin' cause its healthy.

Has anyone seen the medic? I'm not sure the cryo has treated our miner friend that well. And has anyone seen the Captain?

Just 15 more minutes, Captain. Actually, make that another 8 hours. I always wake up from cryo completely exhausted and as Nauls so...eloquently...said, you don't need me right now. IMP can do the basic post-cryo screens; I can go over any abnormalities after I get some proper rest.

Re: PBF # 21 "Who Goes There?" (In-game posts ONLY, please)
Bad news: we've got severe physical damage in multiple critical systems on the ship. That includes my data arrays. I'm missing some big chunks of data. I was able to recompile myself from some older backups, but at this point I don't even know what I don't know. A majority of my sensors have been taken out, so there may be damaged areas I haven't even detected yet.

Worse news, and I hope you're all sitting down for this: I was able to scrape together enough log data to determine that three of the cryobeds were tampered with in the past 48 hours. I wish I could tell you more, but I can't even figure out whose beds they were.

Worst news, and you may want to go fetal for this one: the air filtration sensors have picked up a completely foreign bio signature. Something other than you folks is alive in here. It isn't human. It isn't even from our planet, as far as I can tell.

Worstest news ever, and I don't think there's any position that's going to help: for some reason, these conditions have triggered some hard-coded routines that are forcing me to override the chain of command. I don't know exactly why, but I'm locking down critical sections of the ship. You'll have to send out repair teams by group consensus. I've got the neural net working, but just barely. It will be enough for you to send me a crude yes/no vote for each proposed repair team.

Furthermore, and mind you this is all some weird set of hardcoded instructions that I am compelled to follow, I'm going to cycle through the crew in the order of the neural network and let each of you propose a repair team.

Re: PBF # 21 "Who Goes There?" (In-game posts ONLY, please)
Macready, I was able to Open Up an alternate circuit for a single Neural Net connection. It will only go one-way, though, and will probably only be up for a second before it fries. Should be enough to tell person A something important about person B. For some reason, though, I can't connect you as person A. You'll have to tell me who person B should be, then I'll connect them to the person A of their choice.

I can also give someone the authority to make a one-time override of the repair mission proposal order. I guess that would make them a pretty Strong Leader. I can't assign it to you, though. Must have something to do with you being the leader right now. Just let me know who I should assign that to.

Re: PBF # 21 "Who Goes There?" (In-game posts ONLY, please)
Goddamn cryo sleep headache…I can't get a goddamned thing on my neural net, and I could swear that computer just said we've got a goddamned alien on my boat.

Everyone sound off and let me know you're here and not busy having your brain gnawed on by some kind of goddamned alien space monster. Where's that medic? Get your sorry asses up here and let's get to work. I can't say I'm happy with this "circumvent the chain of command" bullshit either, I.M.P. You get that shit fixed pronto. Once we have the systems back online we're getting the hell out of here, and sure as shit won't be under anyone's command but mine.

And Nauls? One more crack about my language and I will pop your fucking eye out of the socket and fuck your brain. Consider yourself warned, son. I'm not in the mood for any lip. And pour me a goddamn coffee.

Cocksucker.
