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.

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 e
[sup]N[/sup]. 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.
