Single Status Update
> Camera feed successfully hacked. We are beyond the firewall and the Model is not aware of the breach.
>> How long do we have?
> Not long, a few minutes. Tops
>> It will do Ibuki, Now lets see what Zao has been doing since she locked herself in that room.
> Very well, let it be on this record that Ibuki does does not agree with spying on her Model... However her Isolation is unusual and this AI's red flag protocol has been initiated.
* The room is in disarray. The once neat and folded bed sheets and covers strewn haphazardly on and around the bed, clothes and outfits scattered across the room. Zao herself... She is on top of her bed, curled up in a ball clutching a framed picture.*
>> What... is she holding onto?
* It's an Older Picture, a photo of her and the captain, looks like some kind of party off-ship.*
>> Why would she be doing that. The captain is fine... well last we checked right?\
> Affirmative. The odds are that the captain is-
>> Why is she freaking out, can you zoom in on that data band, that one, right there, I think... it's the comms tab she always has open
*the camera swivels around and zooms in on the panel on her data band, it has the captain's signature on it, and it's offline, the date... over 3 days ago.*
>> Well now I get it.
> This AI doesn't, elaborate, please.
>> The captain has been on stuck on the base for months, but Zao and the captain kept in daily contact and now... the abrupt deployment, and lack of contact...
> The deployment means no internet. But why is our Model deteriorating like this?
>> Because Ibuki... Zao... Has been through a lot. like... a lot a lot. This dimension never had the Terminus War, the horrors, the deaths... the experimentation, It damaged her... not physically but left a sort of a emotional scar and the Captain was a stabilizing factor. An amazing stabilizing factor, I've been with her for years but when she met... she smiled, for the first time in a long time, and now without the contact she is drawing up every possible scenario she can conceive in the absence. From the ship sinking to a local killing-
*a loud crunch sound occurs and the feed turns to static.*
>> ... Bloody hell! Ibuki encrypt the breach so she can't trace it back to us. And make it snappy!
> Right away.
