Freefall 2101 - 2110 (H)


Freefall 2101

Dumpster diving for wolves

I'm putting a note under Mr. Raibert's door. I can smell my data pad in his office.
We need to go. The police will be here soon.
When she first joined us, I thought she'd be the one keeping you out of trouble!
It's always a pleasure when a crewmember so greatly exceeds expectations.

What did you find that has Ecosystems Unlimited so annoyed with you?
Can we please talk in the morning? Being turned off is… not restful. I would like to shower and go to bed.
Is it a secret that has world wrecking consequences?
I shouldn't have said anything. You look like a kid who's seen his presents on Christmas Eve.
No, no. I'm fine. But if you decide you want to get up early, I'll be sleeping right outside your door.

Being tossed in a dumpster didn't do me or my clothes any good.
As tired as I am, I'm going to skip a step and wash both at once.

Why aren't you in bed, Helix?
There's an SD40-2 locomotive engine sleeping in my cubicle.
Well, I suppose someone might think that's a good disguise if they don't have a transponder for Goldilocks.

It's just a real locomotive. No references. But here Masha – from the fairy tale of the three bears… Goldilocks, to be exact, but that's not our name. (Robot Spike)

Edge. He's been here about an hour. Too soon to unplug him.
Why does he look like a train engine.
He's using a false transponder. We'll get you plugged in at engineering.
He's too big. He looks all squished. And he's pink and has frilly curtains in his windows.
Edge, you really could have chosen a better disguise.
Florence, is your friend a heavy metal cross dresser?

You're plugged in and ready to go to sleep. I made an addition to your bad word filter to help keep you safe.
Ready to tell me what the secret is?
Please, Sam. In the morning.
Well, if you change your mind and want to talk sooner, I'll be camped out right here.
I know it sounds strange, but after today, I feel a lot better sleeping with a guard squid outside my door.

It's morning. Ready to tell me what the secret with world wrecking consequences is?
Oh, sure! Like it's my fault you weren't wearing pajamas!

I'm not going to get any restful sleep until he finds out what I know.
Sam, can I trust you with this information?
Probably not. But is there anyone else you want to tell more?
At this point, no.
Sometimes it pays to be the lesser of two evils.

The radio in that hasn't worked in years.
Okay. I still need to check your life support pack for susceptible technology.
You're clean.
Painfully so.
It's because I secrete ammonia. Hey, if I can teach you how to do that, you won't need to take so many showers.

Ammonia stinks a lot. (ASD)
Dogs are very sensitive to it, though. It was mentioned before that Sam needs a higher concentration of oxygen inside the spacesuit. He shouldn't go into the mouth of a volcano - the mixture might explode. (Robot Spike)

I've removed all the consumer electronics that somehow fell into my suit.
Good. Computer, please set my room for maximum privacy.
Short version. What is going on?
Every conscious robot in the star system is in danger of being lobotomized.
Now, how do we make money from this?
