L4-O takes a knife -- not that we really expect him to not take one. I wonder what this one's called?

Speed-G also takes one -- a knife's a good thing to have when there could traitors round any corner (or indeed every corner) and also starts looking through boxes. Hmmm... there's plenty of ammunition in this one that looks like it'll fit these slugthrowers they found earlier. And this one -- hey, wait a minute! Those are laser pistol barrels! And this other box has laser pistol bodies to go with them! This won't do at all!

Paula-O looks at them, and immediately starts inspecting them. "They look almost as if they came from Alpha Complex... except that these are black. They don't make INFRARED lasers, though..."

"Hrm... I think I'll call this one... Phred. With a P. and uh, an h"

I search other boxes, if any other interesting boxes remain.

"Maybe we should huh... confiscate all this stuff? Then burn the factory down to the ground."

L4-O decides that he'll call this knife... Phred. I guess he's not all that good at coming up with new names (though, then again, Armed Forces aren't really intended to come up with new naems on demand, are they? )

Speed-G is thinking (dangerous, I know) that maybe they should confiscate everything here and then torch the place.

"Not to doubt you or anything, sir," asks Lucas-O, "but how would we do that? This place survived the end of the Old Reckoning, after all."

"And is it possible that maybe they're not terrorists? I mean... it's probable they're terrorists, since I doubt many inhabitants out here are not terrorists."

"But still... maybe? It's possible they're fighting the terrorists we're after."

I look at L4.

"Well... Our mission was... deploy some sensors no? I guess we can leave the factory alone."

I guess L4-O doesn't really relish the idea of destroying the factory, either; after all, what if those operating it aren't actually terrorists? Okay, it's a slim chance, but still... if they weren't terrorists, they might well be fighting the terrorists as well!

Speed-G tries to recall what their mission actually was... something about deploying sensors or something? If that's the case, they can leave the factory alone.

"I thought we were checking on the viability of possible sector locations," John-O reminds him. "Didn't the briefing recording mention some sort of criteria for that?

"Besides, if we had sensors, they must have been destroyed in the crash."

"Ah well... was there anything else we wanted to check out here? Or are we just going to leave this place and continue with our mission?"

I wave to the clones using the moving walkways.

"Those are some really good points! But that leaves me wondering... If these corridors are not like ventilation ducts, then do they have ventilation ducts of their own to transfer air in and out of them?"

L4-O wonders if there is anything else they have to do here, or are they just going to move on... perhaps they can finally reach this Point One place?

"Well, if Speed-G's done, I guess we'll be done as well," Paula-O says. "We'll need to make up for lost time, though... maybe cut back on sleepcycle a little..."

"But we don't know what's out here," John-O cuts in. "What happens at nightcycle? Does something happen then? Maybe something we need to defend against?"

"What makes you you say that?"

"Well, what if there are zombies, or unregistered mutants... or mutant zombies?" asks the registered mutant (as if mutants out here could be registered). "What if they only come out at nightcycle? That's how it works, right?"

After waving at the clones for several minutecycles straignt (and being disappointed, perhaps, that his arm didn't fall off due to a l l t h e w a v i n g he likes to do ) Cyrus-R suddenly fixates on air ducts once again. "I don't usually go around looking for air ducts," Patrick-R replies. "I prefer not to get sucked into big whirly blades of death though I would if ordered. Besides, air ducts tend to be loud and echoy... and I prefer hygiene stations. What makes you ask?"

"Hrm... that's not a bad point. I guess we'll have to find out, but at least in the bot we'll probably be a little bit safer."

Hmmm... John-O has a point. But L4-O can only point out that they'll have to find out... and at least they'll have their vehiclebots to keep them safe.

"Yeah, there's that," John-O concedes, "and it's not like we can't defend ourselves. But I'd rather not have a repeat of the Industrial Subsectors..."

"So are we going, then?" asks Paula-O.

"I just wanted to make sure air circulation was optimal in these service corridors, and also be prepared for any tiny clones that may or may not come out of vents that may or may not be present."

I finish waving to the clones to give my arm a rest.

"So, did you two just come out here to show me this corridor, or was there something else you wanted? Maybe another corridor?"

"Yeah, guess we should head back."

I start slowly progressing back towards the bots, lagging a bit to be sure that Speed-G is coming with us first so we don't leave him behind!

L4-O decides that they probably should get going, and starts headin out.

Slowly, so as to avoid leaving behind any slow GREENs clones.

Soon, he's back at the contorl room and is about to head back onto the factory floor.

Cyrus-R says that he just wanted to make sure there was "optimal" air circulation.

"That's nice and all," Patrick-R tells him, "but I'm sure that The Computer has that in hand. I'm sure that it it weren't adequate for our security clearance, it would be fixed at some point. Really, why do we need to worry about it ourselves?

"Besides, we didn't come here to just debate air circulation unless it's part of what you clones are surveying. I thought that Erik-O wanted to check in ewith you, and see how you were getting on?"

"That's right," the ORANGE replies. "But I needed Patrick-R's help in navigating the tunnels; he seems to have this knack of knowing which one to take."

"Just a good sense of direction, Sir," Patrick-R replies. "That, and I use them quite a lot to get between power junctions -- you wouldn't believe how easy some of them are to access through the tunnels..."
