Christ, you guys are paranoid. I tried to get something to you in the last drop site, and it was completely cold already. I must be losing my paranoid touch.
Well now that I know you're here, Yours Truly has been doing some digging, and last week I hit the jackpot. I nabbed not one but two high level transmissions from an ONI op hiding in his beloved decapolis, and they're full of secrets! I guess I'm not the only one failing to be sneaky.
The first was an e-mail on its way out-system via the Argo, and guess who it's for! Ironic that we're having a look at it weeks before she ever will. It was encrypted, but it wasn't very much trouble to figure out- it looks like it had to be encrypted in a hurry. The Argo was already a few million kilometers out, so I'm guessing whoever sent this wrote this just a few minutes before and really wanted it to get out before the next ship leaves system, which won't be for a couple of weeks. But that makes you wonder about its importance, right? I mean, it's important enough that it can't wait 2 weeks longer, but it's obviously not very important or they'd have taken greater pains to keep people like us from reading it, right? The message is in the next post.
Not two hours after I got my dirty hands on that e-mail, my snoops picked up an internal transmission that had "Don't Read Me" written all over it. It looks like the good doctor was dictating to a transcriber so the signal could be heavily encrypted without losing the message- fat load of good that did, cause I just recorded it and decrypted it in only 3 days. A new record? The transcript I made is after the e-mail post.
Anyway, I'm plenty pleased with myself- this stuff is gold- but what's all that about evacuation and invaders and Harvest? "Have you heard the reports from Harvest"- is there something going on over there that we don't know about? And this research of his- I'm pretty convinced they're reverse engineering alien artifacts. Hah! I knew the government was hiding this from us! Well, this is way over my head, but I know you guys like to speculate about this sort of stuff, so eat up. Oh, and don't worry about that stuff at the end of the transcript, cause I know Zephyrr, and he's no infiltration AI. Hell, I could probably break into their financial servers without that bozo even noticing. But that's just not my style.
