September 21st, 2552 – Trojan Tech
Structural Engineer/Subversive Rescue Operations Director Kat “S-Kat” James Reporting
Fortunately, Fipps’ people are paranoid enough that they were studying the files they’d downloaded on a closed system with nothing but the files and the utilities they needed to analyze what they were looking at — something I’m going to have to keep in mind while I work on my project fighter.
They let us go for a reason – they wanted us to get their files and have their files download every bit of information available on the computer. We sent them a spy-bot routine of our own based on their systems but as near as we can tell – they want to find Earth and deal with us before we even got here.
So- they didn’t kill us… yet. We aren’t at war… yet… and we have enemies we didn’t even know we had to avoid. Yeah, sometimes being paranoid means being disappointed when people live down to your fears.
At least we have some new tech, 3 new crew-members, the schematics we made, and I have my project fighter. Paranoia pays.
