"Beginning sterilization process."

Liquid nitrogen begins to pour from vents in the ship walls.

"Sorry, I killed it."


"Don't lie, Discord. A mutalisk hit it and destroyed parts of it. You can't destroy it through a computer because it wasn't connected to a computer when you were made. Plus, I kind of need it for my ship. I'm sure you two would be good friends. Now, time to get to work. Here goes nothing."

OOC: I assume John told Jeff Discord’s name.

HEEEEEERP.

can anyone get my up to date? I'm not in the mood to slog through 9 pages of Changeling on marine action.

And/or Defiler surgery and large unstoppable zerg beasts.

Changeling vs Marine
-I cut his gun in half
-Discord seals doors in between us
-Marine Splodes me with a Det-Charge, blowing his arm off in the process
-Defiler takes me to lab and tells me I'm not done evolving
-We go back
-Jeff the Ghost is back
-New enemy-> Horde of insects bent on eating us
-Discord Floods the ship in Liquid Nitrogen, killing everyone on besides us, who are inside Jeff's ship

OOC: You cut one of my guns in half. I still have my guass rifle and my revolver.

The Leviathan was trying to latch eggs on us, but the eggs never made it to the hull. I see the guns firing on the mutalisks; but yet, the distance never seemed to change.
"Bridge Master, is the ship moving."
"No. We are currently getting a message, and you might want to see it. It's Vans"
"....."
I walk to one of the screens, where I see the message. It was only text, but never less had a mocking tone:
If you are reading this Troy, I still have the device with me. However, I split it and left half on it on the ship. I'm sending my creatures to retrieve it, and to take that A.I. It will be interesting learning more of the Protoss. And I know you'll try to take it from; but, if you decide to run from me, I'll destroy the other carrier along the way. Ether way, you die. I recommend you try to stop me, it'll bring me great pleasure watching you die.

"Sir, should we do it?"
"Yes, even though he wants it to happen. He still can't use the device without the other half."
"Boarding team?"
"Yes, and send the Consular's students to his location. It'll make him happy that his students were there in his final moments."
"Are you going to board too, sir?"
"Yes, I need to still kill the creature. I bet Vans made some changes to it."
I head to the boarding ship, where I met the volunteers. This mission is going to bring them nightmares for years.

OOC: Oh it was stoppable. It was stoppable. (I want a smiley function.)

"I killed the on-board adjunct that !@#$ed to one of the scientists. It had decided that I was a 'threat to system security' and 'had insufficient clearance' to access any of the ships systems. It had not occurred to me to check your ship for an adjunct."

*All decks flooded*
*Beginning clean up*
*Expelling Nitrogen from systems*
...
*Nitrogen levels approaching except-able levels*
*Beginning reheat*
*Restoring atmosphere*

"It will be safe to leave the ship in a moment."

"There was an adjutant on the Hercules? That can't be right. I've worked on this ship since it was built and there was never an adjutant on board."

"Well, if that's true than where did it come from? Do you think someone installed it after you were frozen?"

"I don't know why they would. The systems on a Hercules definitely wouldn't need an adjutant to run."

"Actually, I remember that when I accessed the ship's files, I didn't encounter any resistance from an adjutant. It didn't even surface when you deleted the system files, so it must've been separate from the Hercules' main computer."

"I have a bad feeling about this."

"Discord, do you still have the system data that the adjutant contained and do you know where on the ship it is located?"

"I have the data, but since it is all classified, I don't think you were suppose to see it. As for the adjunct, It's shell located in the personal quarters of a head scientist. I have deleted everything on it. All of its hard disk space looks like this:

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000


Even the driver software and its redundancies. If left alone it may have caused damage to my systems. Doing this reduced its threat level to nearly zero."


"That said, I could probably fix your adjunct. Again, that said, If it attempts to access any of MY files, I will delete it like the other one."

"You can't recover the files. For terran technology, it is possible to restore files to their original state and I don't care if the files are classified I want access to them if possible. Can you pinpoint the location of the adjutant on a map of the ship?"

"You terrans and your technology confuse me. I'm an expert with Genetic mutation via virus, not a software engineer. I honestly don't understand why the zerg haven't incorporated any technology. It would make interactio- Oh, right, I forgot that supposedly we were created just to destroy every living thing in existence... If you don't mind, I *Yawn* am going to rest."

I fall asleep and another dream plagues me.

I find myself floating, on a battlefield, supposedly. Blood and gore cover the field. Only two figures are left standing, one green, and one red. They lash out, the Green showing an excellent display of grace and elegance as it attacks the other. While the red abandons all thoughts of order and lashes out with random bursts of fury and strength. When the dust clears, both of the figures have blades at each other's necks. They finally notice me, and rush forward to strike me down, and as their blades rise...

I awaken.

"You misunderstand.

1)*I copied the files I deemed relevant
2)*then erased everything,
3)*then rewrote random 1s and 0s on the data
4)*then erased everything again
5)*then repeated steps 3 and 4 two more times.

This is a lot of work, but it prevents file recovery. I did not want to risk the adjunct 'reassembling' its self and attempting to take control of the ship again."

"Anyway. Please be more specific in your data request. It would take several days to verbally convey all of that that data to you."

"You stupid annoying p!@#$, it’s impossible for an adjutant to rebuild itself!!!"

"Relax John. I can understand why you’re mad bu..."

"Of course I'm mad; we might have needed tha..."

"BUT don't forget that we still have the adjutant to find. Maybe we can find something interesting in that room and if the adjutant is worthless than I could use the spare parts to rebuild my adjutant. Can you download the data you didn't destroy into my PDA or into my ships systems, Discord? John, I'll go look for that adjutant when the ship is clear and you should try to reach your family."

John grumbles, but he goes to the computer to try the secure line to his parents.

"How long until the ship is safe again Discord?"

"Sir, we'll board the hercules in a few minutes."
"All right then."
I look back at the men who were sitting there. Somewhat half of them were Protoss, and the other half Terran. I hope these men are experienced in combat.
"Men, suit up. We're going to land on the ship where I had hell on. And this isn't going to be a hayride.'
I started to get ready myself; but then I was interrupted by the Deck Master.
"The Consular has came back."
"What does he want?"
"He's just standing there. It looks like-What?!?"
"What is it."
"He-he just disappeared!"
"Don't worry, just focus on getting on planet."
Come on. This just gets better and better.

"Oh, a search? May we be of assistance?"
"What is an Adjutant anyway?"

"You are correct. The adjunct will be an excellent source of spare parts."

*Environment stable*
"You may proceed outside."

"Sensors indicate a ship coming toward us. If I had to speculate, I would say it is a protoss shuttle."

"An adjutant is a Terran A.I. unit, simmilar to but much lesser than Discord. Discord had no physical form other than this ship or where ever he is stored. An adjutant has a physical form and it bound to it."
"A protoss shuttle huh. What carrier did it launch from."
