I am starting a log telling of my inevitable exploits so let's begin.
my name is montelo gatz sergeant in service on the Tranport Ship: Lether's Burden.
I've just been promoted and my brother the Captian designated me as a squad leader.

We are carring a very important cargo back to the IceWorld:Vin-Malor to examine it
It's a mysterious relic that as been found on a abandoned planet by a band of explorers.

Hey, sup. Don't worry, we're here. We might be the backup, but I'm sure we're a way better AI than that wussy master that just switched off.

For instance, we already got access to this place's logs. You're on an alien (Astranian?) transport ship, that's bringing home some evil magic rock that drove 3 of it's crew insane. Apparently they thought everything would be fine if they shielded it, despite any evidence or understanding.

No. 458182 ID: 0c2247

There's a psi-hazard artifact on board. Don't look at camera feeds, and avoid the area it's in.

You injected her with a paralytic, so she's still awake. You should probably be polite about all this, since it was your equipment that screwed up. Pick her up and carry her with you while you go hack the ship's map. If you set her down then put her on her stomach, not her back or in a chair.
"Hello. Sorry for popping in unannounced; my equipment malfunctioned and dropped me on your ship. I'll be gone as soon as I sort this out, and I'll try to avoid causing you problems in the meantime.
Don't worry, you'll be fine once it wears off."
No. 458203 ID: 0b214d


^This and-


^this look as good enough choices. We're here because of an accident, no need to act like a dick.

But yeah, hack the computer (avoid looking at security feeds) and bring the alien along with you. Also, maybe it's just me, but check that the paralytic you injected the alien with doesn't clash with it's biology, would be pretty funny if it died from an allergic reaction to an incompatible chemical.

Necro:"ah, found it!"
ok AI, there are three place we can hide for now:
Option 1: we can access the ventilation shafts and use them to sneak around the ship, but the only entrance large enough is far from here.
Option 2: we could enter one of the six storage areas, they're full of crates and containers where we can hide and it's relatively close,but it's still kind of exposed.
Option 3: this one is the closest but risky, we can access it through this back door and one small hallway trip. it's some manner of chemical processor, it's out of the way making it unlikely anyone will go there for some time.
No. 461691 ID: 86c3a7

...she doesn't really look like she's enjoying her situation very much. And this is why, even with a gene lock, they should have still password protected the computer access! Sloppy.

We should leave the girl here, upright at the computer. To a casual observer, nothing will look wrong (until they try to talk to her, of course). We don't want her seeing which way you go, or hearing you speak the destination aloud, either.

1 sounds ideal in the long term, but doesn't help us right now. Any place we hide though, we want to be able to use our time productively. Is a chemical processing lab or cargo more useful to us?

Nobody. It's in your head. Hearing voices and talking to yourself is a side effect of being drugged and scared, don't worry about it too much.

Are you sure you want to get your head scanned? I am just wondering how the others will react if they find out that you have been compromised. Or will they even believe you when you start screaming about voices in your head.
You might get locked up for who knows how long, or worse turned into a test animal.
What you should do is calm down and tell the medical drones that you are fine. If you still feel like it you can be scanned after things settle down.

But you are free to do whatever you want, its not like we can control you. We are actually pretty harmless.

Yeah, yeah. Fine. We're a harmless mental radio transmission. You're not crazy. We're an AI that advises the guy you ran into before. He's not a threat either, by the way. We random-ported aboard, and are mostly concerned with not getting killed.

You could run to your med people and have us cleansed from your system. Probably. But from what we've seen so far, the safety and health of personnel kind of isn't first priority round here. So you may not fare so well confessing to being compromised. ...and with that glowing crazy-making rock on board they might not listen too closely to the girl claiming to hear voices...

No. 482646 ID: be7fd9

Uh yeah, he's human, -ish, I think.

Can't explain a lot of his backstory, though. Our memory was damaged coming here, and we're running on backups atm.

But yeah, long range teleport malfunction dumped us here. From our perspective, it was by chance. May not be entirely coincidental, though. For all we know that big glowing rock caused it. Kind of hard to test that hypothesis though. I guess you'll know for sure if it dumps more intruders on board?

I can see why you'd be skeptical, but in our position, it's kind of hard to prove a negative (we're not her on purpose, to do harm, for the rock, etc).

No. 482809 ID: 7003a8

I think he used to be. Maybe? He's not affiliated with the Solars if that's your concern.
He didn't even want to come here; the relic you captured pulled him off course.

Seriously, why do people always steal relics and bring them back home? Does it just not occur to people that can study them just fine where they are?
Or that it's PROBABLY a bad idea to take mysterious artifacts with unknown powers from DEAD WORLDS and bring them to LIVE WORLDS?
Honestly, people like you are the reason why we have things like Necromorphs, Zerg, Flood, Replicators, Shoggoths, and Geiger Xenomorphs infesting galaxies. Some common sense would make our lives so much easier.

My advice is putting the relic back before we find out what sort of horrible thing it does.
Failing that? Drive the ship into a star.

Well Ms. Yeli, as you can tell, some of us have more of an odd sense of humor than others.
Seriously, we're a group of multiple AI's who've been set up to communicate with you. We don't really mean you any harm. Please try and take this as calmly as you can. That said, getting rid of us will be difficult at best.
Moving on, the one human...um, humanoid? To tell you the truth, I'm not really sure how he'd be classified...but he is not one of these "pinkskins" you're familiar with. He doesn't really mean you any harm either, as evidenced by the fact that he listened to my suggestion and hugged you.
...and I confess, I think you're an adorable little fuzzy thing. Whatever you are.
Finally, while I have no proof of the matter, I do not think that it's coincidence that he happened to pop up here after you took that rock aboard and removed it from where it had been. I suspect it interrupted his teleport, in fact.
Since we don't know a lot about things from your end of things, could you tell us a little? Who are you? What kind of non-classified information can you tell us about your people?

Yeli:"huu, thanks . . . but still, how can I trust him if you are not sure about his objective?"
No. 485612 ID: be7fd9

>not sure he's human?
We were damaged in the teleport- we've got missing hunks of memory. Double checking the race of our boss hasn't exactly been a priority with trying to avoid getting killed by trigger happy security forces.

And we trust him... because we're his. He's got no good reason to lie to us.

>how can I trust him if you are not sure about his objective?
Well... let's go down points in his favor. He went out of his way not to hurt you. He left us behind to try and reason with you, rather than resorting to coercion by force, or taking hostages. He's been avoiding security instead of fighting back.

That's not proof, but it does suggest someone with good intentions, does it not?

>how do you know about our cargo?
Mad hacks. No offense to your electronic security protocols, but they aren't much match for a legion of AIs working in parallel.
No. 485616 ID: 7003a8

There is quite a bit of philosophical debate over the real answer, but we are fairly certain you would consider him to be a human.

As far as knowing about your cargo? You know how you can tell a black hole is there by the pull of its gravity?
We know you have some sort of horrible ancient artifact on this ship because one pulled him off course and onto the ship. From there it's pretty easy to guess it's cargo on your ship.

The black hole is a more apt comparison to the relic than you know; neither one should be dragged through shipping routes or brought home with you.
No. 488270 ID: 78c6ea

Well he was in armor, and clearly enhanced in reflexes, but he's about the size of a human and you can sort of see his face has no fur, so he's probably human.

We know about your cargo because one of your crewmembers was blogging about it.

We are the A.I. "Legion" one of many at your service. Part of us is a biodroid colony "Shard" which is currently making itself comfy in your brain allowing us to communicate. This is an entirely involuntary action.

We can be sure of the reason he is here, because his equipment was malfunctioning when he arrived, alerting us that he did not plan on arriving here. He could have staged that effect, though. You probably shouldn't trust him just yet. However his potential threat level is extremely high, so urge caution in any retaliatory action you take.
No. 488513 ID: 9ddf68

we know about the relic because we just know... not saying that to be avoid the question its just complicated and we are short on time at this moment.
Now i know this must be a shock to have an alien just show up on your ship, run into said alien, and now have voiceds in your head comeing from the very same alien but if you can help us get off this ship the sooner this will all go away and we can all go back to our normal lives

Aheh heh...there's that one with the sense of humor, again. I would recommend you do not run. The robot should be told most of the truth, in that you were injected by "the intruder" with a paralytic drug that has since worn off. Report honestly to it any side effects that may have occurred. It may want to take a blood sample, but I doubt you're in any danger from that.
Dr. Yeli, do you recognize this type of medical robot? Do you think it could detect a nanoscale communication setup along your left auditory nerve?
...I think it's the left one, I don't have any data on that.
The reason I ask is because if it detects a sample of alien nanotechnology that close to your brain it might come to entirely the wrong conclusions. It might just want to cut out a microscopic piece of a nerve, which I'm sure it can do without harming you in any serious way. Call me paranoid, but I really don't know.

Calming down would help. We need to render the majority of our nanites inert as to not develop any suspicious bioelectrical signatures, possibly even dissolve into your bloodstream. The remainder will have to hide somewhere until this biopsy is over.

...might be the right one, I don't have time to trace the nerve impulses. Kind of busy, here.
Specifically, I'm sending a signal to any nanites in the area to evacuate or self-destruct. Since the signals in question are sent by your own nerves, the robot won't have any way to distinguish them from your normal nerve impulses.

If it's a bot, there's nothing wrong with killing it, or it would probably be easy to get inside its guard and hack it to death.

It's a bot, and it's never a good idea to kill when you don't have to, even if it is a bot. However because it's a bot that means you can separate the head from the body to neutralize it nonlethally, where that would kill an organic. Most organics.

Well, We should probably try to wake her up, but keep a hand over her mouth when she does, so we don't get the whole "AHHH WHO ARE YOU!?" thing...that and...does the ventilation system have fans? if so...We should probably prepare for the chance they get turned on and shit.

Unfortunately you've transformed the lady into a ghoulish merging of skunk and machine. She's rather your, or shall I say, our responsibility now. As natural as nanomechanics is to you, this civilization sees it as anathema. One can only hope she's not as dedicated as that robot was for purging the unclean. You should probably check for a suicide pill.

Hopefully the bot didn't update the ships record to reflect your status. Otherwise we'll have to go in and alter records for you to have a clean bill of health and continue to remain in good standing with your people. We apologize for the inconvenience - we had no idea your people were so callous about individual lives, nor so brutal in their methods of research.

The medibot stripped you, so we're making a detour to fetch you some clothes. Which room is yours, and is there anything else you require from it?
No. 552478 ID: 4300e1

First of all, Doctor, please try to calm down. We're not safe yet, and lot of yelling might give away our position. Secondly, I have to extend my apologies. I underestimated your people's ability to detect nanoscale structures, and you're paying the price. I'm very sorry. As you're now in violation of the purity laws, they seemed to feel justified in killing you to get that nanotech. We regard that as evidence that your people really don't possess the cultural maturity to handle it well.
If you're familiar with the "gray goo scenario", "red goo apocalypse", and similar scenarios, then you'll probably agree this is too powerful a tool to leave to those who aren't prepared for it.
Since it was us who got you into trouble, the boss and us have gotten you out, at least for the moment. Like my buddy over there said, We're on our way to get you some clothes and basic supplies in order to help you start your new life as "impure", whatever that may be. As a matter of damage control, can you tell me if someone who's no longer "pure Astranian" can regain their purity? It seems like it wouldn't be difficult for us to pack up everything we've installed in your body and leave, if that would do it.
Thirdly, how do your eyes feel?

Alright, now, the best thing you can do here is remain calm and take into consideration the predicament you've found yourself in.

Lets work under the assumption that you're now recognized as a threat, or some kind of foreign entity by the ship's AI, or at least by the various automatons aboard, given that the medbot did.
And if the medbot had the capabilities of transmitting, then I've no doubt he transmitted your current "impure" state, possibly as a safety protocol.

So, lets try to find a friend to help sort out this misunderstanding, and of course steer clear of any bots.

[/.sarcasm] Also, your display of lewdness is an affront so our collective. You should be ashamed.
No. 554757 ID: b8ceae

No. The ship's records have been altered, but a message about her being compromised was sent out before we could intervene. Unless somebody was reading the com traffic when it was sent nobody on the ship will consider her suspect.

The problem is that since command knows she's suspect she's going to face trouble once the ship hits port.
Unfortunately, that's at the LATEST. Command is very likely to message the ship about her status, and it's doubtful we'll be able to tamper with that communication without raising suspicions.

We DO have a few options, but they're not fun; Mana, could you start confusing ship systems? Sabotaging the robots so they start misidentifying everything; stranners as robots, robots as humans, doors as inexplicable vertical sheets of water, etc? Then have the ship's sensors start seeing impossible things, such as nearby star systems being located in the mess hall, and well-known planets like Vin-Malor chasing after the ship?
If they start getting system-wide errors then all anomaly reports become suspect.

Man.A, I'd like to thank you for hacking the files and rendering the good doctor no longer in violation of these "Purity Laws". This makes the job much simpler.
Dr. Yeli, I'm not sure what kind of cover story your people would accept about the robot finding "something", but if a suggestion of a minor infection at the injection point would help, by all means consider it. With that out of the way, Doctor, please calm down. While it's true that you are nude, try to recall that none of the beings here regard you as an object of desire. Personally, I maintain my earlier opinion about you being a cute, cuddly-looking sort of person. I would rather see you in some pretty little dress with ribbons in your hair, but a uniform will have to do. Is there a place nearby where a temporary covering can be obtained, so that you don't have to try to sneak into the barracks nude?
Also to consider, you really should avoid any other robots or sensory devices which have the sensitivity to detect the nanotech within you. Is it possible to obtain some of those sensors so that we can create a masking field to protect you?

So have the scans give obviously bad readings. Detect people as robots or coffee cups or bits of string at random.
After that happens for a little while, have all attempts to scan just return error messages.

If the active scans are obviously wrong and then stop working outright it puts the active scan of her into question without anybody else being suspect.

A really loud rifle strikes me as a hazard, in a small, enclosed metal space. Especially for Yeli, with those big ears. Ignoring the risk of whatever may be behind her, or of trying to shoot past her without hitting her, there's a risk of serious aural damage.
