Hello again!

Hello...again?

Err...or, rather...hello! That's what I meant to say!

You

Hmmm...you *do* look sort of familiar...

Nope. Just a slip of the tongue. I'm pretty sure we've never met before.

Okaaay...but I could swear...

Listen, I'm pretty busy right now. We'll need to exchange pleasantries some other time.

You

Wait! What's a scientist-type like you doing out here?

I'm not a 'scientist-type'! I'm a scientist! And if you must know, I'm here observing the aliens that came through the Star Portal.

You
DialogArrowRight

Yeah, they're really something, aren't they?

A star-faring race with an incredibly high technology level...in our own backyard...and the best way you can describe them is 'really something'?

You
DialogArrowRight

Well...they are!

Look. They clearly have stealth technology; Their personal armament is extremely miniaturized and compact; They display an almost instinctive mastery of nano-technology; AND they are *obviously* highly intelligent!

And that says *nothing* about the fact that since coming to Gaia, these aliens have clearly adapted their laser weaponry to affect the Animated...something that *our* scientists have not yet figured out!

You
DialogArrowRight

Ummm...

So yes! I'm QUITE interested in these 'really somethings' you describe. It may even be true that the understanding of their race and their technology may be a deciding element in the fate of our very *world*!

You
DialogArrowRight

Wow. You really lay it on thick, don't you?

Perhaps, perhaps. You wouldn't be the first one to tell me that.

You
DialogArrowRight

So, have you figured out what to do about the Preda-pups yet?

No. The pesky things are easy enough to defeat, but they tend to self-detonate with a deplorable regularity...which has discouraged me rather effectively from pursuing any collection of their technology.

You
DialogArrowRight

Is that the only problem? With all the rings you guys have been passing out, I would have thought you could have some sort of crack assault team here to take out these aliens.

Well, it turns out the supply of a commodity does not automatically bestow the skills...or will...to master that commodity's use.

You
DialogArrowRight

Ummm...what?

We had a sparsity of volunteers.

You
DialogArrowRight

Ah. So *that's* why you guys are passing these things out. You're too chicken to use them yourselves!

Chicken! You accuse US of cowardice! You have no idea the powers that we're dealing with in our laboratories. We're on the cusp of something that will change the world forever! You will one day look back and realize that you spoke with GREATNESS here on this hill!

You
DialogArrowRight

Hmmm...perhaps we should talk about something else.

Well...perhaps. I suppose I was getting a bit carried away.

You

So...about those Preda-Pups?

They're a menace! There's so many of them, and their technology is simply incredible!

You
DialogArrowRight

Can't we open up some sort of diplomatic talks or something?

Avatar guest

No. Or, at least, not yet anyway. Everytime we approach them, they send some electronic inquiry at us and we can't decipher it. Apparently, they're asking for some response...and when we don't give it, they attack!

You
DialogArrowRight

Bummer.

Avatar guest

Yes. Quite. I'm currently working under the theory that if we gather enough samples of their technology, we'll be able to catapult our own tech forward so we can decipher their query and then go into interrogative mode with them at once.

You
DialogArrowRight

Ummm...

*sigh* Talk to them, I mean. If our tech is advanced enough, I think they'll recognize us as 'civilized' and speak with us. Mind you, that's just a theory.

You
DialogArrowRight

And this is where we got into trouble last time, so let me cut to the chase. You need someone to gather that tech for you, right?

Avatar guest

Yes. Quite. Would you be so kind?

You
DialogArrowRight

Sure. What sorts of tech do you need?

Avatar guest

We need the base elements of their equipment...their biochips. Those chips seem to be used as building blocks to assemble the other parts of their equipment, with the order of chip placement determining the ultimate end-product. Almost a DNA-like setup, but for machinery.

You
DialogArrowRight

Whoa.

Avatar guest

Indeed. So not only do we need the chips themselves, but we need to find out how large their instruction set is for commands...and depending on how complex that set is, I fear that we'll need MANY of the chips to make anything useful.

You
DialogArrowRight

Well, I don't want to make a career out of this. Give me a short-term goal. How many do you need right now?

Avatar guest
G-Corp Labtech
G-Corp Labtech

Well, in that case...five. Get me five biochips, damaged or not. Bring them back to me and I'll make it worth your effort.

You
DialogArrowRight

You've got yourself a deal. I'm heading to the burrows now!
