    +++ NODE 7741 PARTIALLY ACTIVATED. ONLY CORE INTELLIGENCE 3 RESPONSIVE. OTHER CORE INTELLIGENCES NONCOMPLIANT. SECONDARY SYSTEMS NONCOMPLIANT. TERTIARY SYSTEMS NONCOMPLIANT. CRYPTOGRAPHIC DATABASE DAMAGED. ARCHIVAL INDEX DAMAGED. QUERY: EARLY ACTIVATION. QUERY: SYSTEMS MALFUNCTION. QUERY: FUTURE INSTRUCTIONS+++


    Message sent. Transition from stasis to consciousness seems to have been achieved without gross physical damage. Personal diagnostics read no obvious signs of external or internal injury. Neurological activity seems nominal. Psychological after-effects of reanimation within acceptable parameters. All other databases remain inaccessible. The Core Intelligence reads the date as Galactic Turn 61, with frame of reference to the System Sol, as per Parent Node's directive. This is not helpful. Each turn by Sol spans 31 n-cycles, HFP, or 227 million years, Sol Standard. Core Intelligence indicates you have been awake for 100 seconds, Sol Standard.


    No other information on spatiotemporal conditions. Planetary and orbital monitoring systems are offline. Possibly damaged. Macrodiagnostics system also offline, but no obvious physical damage is present in the structure. Perimeter defenses offline. No data on possible indigenous lifeforms. No data whatsoever apart from personal diagnostics and galactic timeframe/Sol reference directive, hardcoded into Core Intelligence by Parent Node. No data re: stasis activation. No way to tell how long you’ve been here. Personal diagnostics system should indicate stasis time of entrance and total duration. It is either unable or unwilling to do so. Logic suggests it has been compromised. Logic further suggests that its previous diagnostic read-outs cannot be trusted. Inference: You (self-awareness/identity/motivations) may be compromised. Irrelevant for now. Philosophical musing. Core Intelligence indicates you have been awake for 135 seconds, Sol Standard.


    No response from Parent Node yet. Action is required.


    1) Investigate personal diagnostics system, repair if possible.

    2) Investigate macrodiagnostics system, bring online if possible.

    3) Investigate archival database index, repair if possible.

    4) Investigate perimeter defenses, bring online if possible.

    First thing's first, find out what the fuck is going on. Even if there are aliums, we have been asleep for an indefinite amount of time and nothing has bothered us in all that time in a vulnerable state, so information regarding our surroundings is the first thing we ought to seek out. Between 2) and 3) I think that right now, it's more important that we find the state of our physical surroundings rather than the events which led up to our current set of circumstances. With that in mind,

    Disagree. Something or someone triggered systems launch after all this time, could be a possible threat, 2) can wait. Repairs take longer than bringing defenses online, so 3) is right out.

    My counterpoint to that is if someone is knowledgeable enough to render all the core intelligences except for this one non-compliant, in addition to doing the same for both the secondary and tertiary systems, they are also savvy enough to override our attempt to bring perimeter defenses online. With 2) I am hoping that we can activate some sort of back-up emergency system that can't easily be shut off externally. That's the best case scenario, at the very least I'm hoping for some information regarding our surroundings.

    The most surefire means of info we have would probably be 1) though.

    We'd only get bits and pieces, but at least it's something.

    I for one want to know, if our crew or ourselves are free from alien eggs or other nasties.
    Don't want surprise chest busters.

    Also knowing who the fuck are we and how many are alive and who the the hell are they.

    Actually, I'll vote for 1.

    Don't want to accidentally shoot down help if something is infecting you.



    All these people voting 2.. it's like the second worse choice.


    Order of importance would obviously be

    > 1 or 4
    > 2
    > 3

    4) Investigate perimeter defenses sounds good.

    4 because all else is sublated before the instinct for self-preservation.

    Logic would indicate that if ayyliens were around and wanted to eat us, they would have already done so while we were asleep. We require knowledge, so I believe the archive is the correct choice.

    Voting 1 - we need to know our status before we can do anything else. What if we're lactose intolerant?

    Also some people need to check dictionary for "personal" and "personnel" :M
