Mission report:

The mission was successful. Infiltration of the Ozymandias Rez Co facility at [37°41'32"n/97°20'14"w/-3000m] occurred at mission time 45 hours 35 minutes without incident. Facility was secured at mission time 46 hours 05 minutes. Resistance was minor, consisting of a dozen menton morphs and three fury morphs. Backup of subject "Gregory" was retrieved without incident, and the facility was wired for detonation. At 49 hours 37 minutes, an Exsurgent infection of the Ozymandias Rez Co system was observed by muse. The timing suggests some sort of trap in case the facility was compromised. Facility was detonated before the infection had a chance to spread.

Mission report:

Few substantial deviations from Picollo's report. The Exsurgent infection was detected at 49 hours 37 minutes, but it had clearly been active for longer. Given how long the Exsurgent virus had been active, and the Ozymandias facilities liberal use of a qbit network to maintain the so called "Mesh Archives", it is of interest that the infection did not spread more than has been observed, and that it failed to damage any of the systems it was on. Analysis of what traffic records were captured suggest that there may have been some system in place that was actively combating the virus, but details are sketchy. If this was an anti-Exsurgent combat virus, it was well made. We suggest the Scanners and Vectors keep an eye out for any program running under the handle EFR7.

During the mission Picollo made use of the Ozymandias Rez Co qbit network to upload a virus targeted at an AGI named 'root' associated with the criminal organization eN. This was in relation to the psychosurgery Picollo was subjected to by the same AGI several months ago, and done with the excuse of preventing a Singularity attempt. Firewall has been tracking the 'root' AGI, and while it was definitely a Singularity seeker, it had not been categorized as an active x-threat. We suspect that Picollo may have been pursuing this objective for the Jovian Republic, which he is known to hold sympathies for. We worry that Picollo may be more than merely sympathetic to the Jovians, and suggest the Scanners keep an eye out for evidence in the Jovian intelnet.

Request for data:

I need to use a favor. I need a list of people under the name Kerimov. Tell the Crows to be careful; the name will set off alerts if searched for on public feeds.

Sentinel Picollo has made contact with the Xeno, is attempting to gain emotional hold on the x-threat by challenging its pride. Will be interested to see if x-threat responds with expected transhuman emotion-profile, and will be interested to see how this fits our data model for the queen the x-threat has made mention of. X-threat is well schooled in infosec intrusion, so watch this channel for infection, and be sure to cleanse with fire if anything comes up it the wrong way.

Sentinel Picollo has succeeded in gaining a location from the x-threat, but I think the idiot has a crush. Any erasure squads around Pavarti, Venus should move into position to contain if the activated Sentinel squad is unable to apprehend the x-threat. I suggest that operatives going in have their cortical stacks wiped before hand, as we don't want any memories of this particular threat online anywhere, and we don't want the possibility of losing those memories.

"Ug, seriously, where did you get this agent? Picollo is headed to Pavarti to meet up with his creepy hive-girl romantic interest, but he insists on dragging his heirloom meatsack with him. As I would rather not be riding along with this idiot when he gets captured by the swarm, I'm taking steps to eliminate the problem before we get there.

"I managed to get a copy of the infected 'root' ego before our channel was shut down. I've found that forks take personality imprints very easily, and the forks naturally form a group mind. I'm sending three of them to Pavarti, code names Melete, Mneme, and Aoide, along with specs for synthmorphs to sleeve them in. They exist only to hunt and kill this x-threat and will deactivate after they have accomplished their goals. There is some risk that the infection that hit root is not gone, so I would suggest keeping the erasure squads ready in case of unexpected side effects."
