Bzzt! Security personnel reports that PO3 Ives, PO3 Wolfe, CN Erickson, CN Raschad, and CA Hendricks were inside the defunct MAC rail battery. PO3 Ives, CN Erickson, and CA Hendricks are unconscious. They are being collected by medical staff for treatment for minor injuries. PO3 Wolfe and CN Raschad insist that they did not cause the injuries. One pistol, one knife, and one length of pipe were found inside. They are taking PO3 Wolfe and CN Raschad for questioning.

Bzzt! Helen and I are attempting to reconstruct the audio data from the time of the anomaly. Though the bulk of the EM anomaly has ended, there are still residual effects.

Bzzt! CN Raschad has submitted a report.

INCIDENT REPORT: CN RASCHAD, DAVID
DATE: 03/27/2612, 0140 SST

Summary of Incident: Myself and PO3 Wolfe were at the location no doubt listed in at least half a dozen other reports you've already read so I won't waste space detailing that. I was trying to impress her because she's got it going on, and I think I succeeded. Go me. Then while we were trading witty banter, PO3 Ives, CN Erickson and CA Hendricks, seriously what kind of a name is Hendricks anyways, arrived to spoil the mood. They were very pissed off at me and I think wanted to crush me into a fine paste on the floor or something similarly painful. Then Captain Power Armor appeared and meted out Justice to the Evil Doers. He posed dramatically and his cape fluttered in a breeze, which I'm still not sure where it came from, and then he dashed off before I could ask PO3 Wolfe "Who was that masked man?!" And then, as is always the case in the old vids I remember, the cavalry arrived just a few seconds too late to do anything that they'd be needed for. And now that I'm done this, I'm going to go and lay down and dream of something warm and squirmy and female who would kick my ass if she knew I was writing this in this tone. But what do I care at this point? I'm hoping for a court martial or a section eight. Which is worrying, because if I've gone crazy, it's spreading to other crew members again.

Bzzt! Captain, PO3 Wolfe has submitted a report.

INCIDENT REPORT: PO3 WOLFE, SAMANTHA
DATE: 03/27/2612, 0255 SST

AT 0016 SST, CN RASCHAD, DAVID, MET ME IN MEDICAL BAY 3, WHERE I'VE BEEN STAYING AT THE BEHEST OF LT MULDOON, ROBERT. HE THEN TOOK ME TO JUNCTION 14-7-18 TO AN ACCESS HATCH. THIS HATCH LEAD TO DEFUNCT MAC RAIL BATTERY 1A.

DURING MY TOUR OF THE MAC RAIL BATTERY AND EXPLAINING THE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT BROUGHT ABOUT ITS PARTICULAR CHARACTERISTICS WE WERE SET UPON BY THE FOLLOWING: PO3 IVES, MICHAEL; CN ERICKSON, JIM; AND CA HENDRICKS, LENNY. THEY APPEARED TO BE FAMILIAR WITH CN RASCHAD'S HISTORY ABOARD THE UNSC LEBANON AND WERE CONVINCED THAT THIS WAS THE CAUSE OF THE CURRENT DIFFICULTIES THAT THE THESEUS IS EXPERIENCING.

AS THEY WERE MOVING IN TO ATTACK US, MYSELF AND CN RASCHAD SAW ANOTHER FIGURE WALK THROUGH THE WALL. CN RASCHAD BECAME RIGID BY THE SIGHT. THE FIGURE WORE KAVACHA ARMOR, HOWEVER IT APPEARED DIFFERENT FROM THE FIRST ONE THAT WE SAW.

[REDACTED]

THE FIGURE THEN PROCEEDED TO ASSAULT PO3 IVES, CN ERICKSON, AND CA HENDRICKS WITH KICKS. BOTH IVES AND HENDRICKS WERE DISABLED BEFORE THEY COULD RESPOND. ERICKSON ATTEMPTED TO STAB THE FIGURE. THE KNIFE DID NO DISCERNABLE DAMAGE TO THE ARMOR. THE FIGURE THEN KICKED ERICKSON TWICE, AT WHICH POINT HE COLLAPSED. THE FIGURE THEN INFORMED US THAT IT WAS A FRIEND OF A FRIEND, AND THAT WE WERE TO GO TO A PLACE THAT DOES NOT EXIST ANY MORE AND A PLACE WE WILL NOT FIND.

IT THEN PROCEEDED TO INFORM US THAT IT WAS WATCHING OVER US BECAUSE OF 6-3. IT THEN TOLD US THAT THE FRIEND, WHICH IT REFERRED TO AS A MALE, VIEWED RASCHAD AS A BROTHER. AS THE FIGURE ATTEMPTED TO LEAVE, RASCHAD CALLED OUT TO IT TO SAY THAT ITS DISPLAY OF CONTROL WAS IMPRESSIVE. IT SEEMED TO BE EMBARASSED BEFORE LEAVING, WALKING THROUGH ANOTHER BULKHEAD.

MOMENTS LATER, THE SECURITY TEAM ARRIVED.

Bzzt! CN Raschad, after a talk with Dr. Muldoon, has submitted another report.

INCIDENT REPORT: CN RASCHAD, DAVID
DATE: 03/27/2612, 0303 SST

Summary of Incident: Myself and PO3 Wolfe left Medical and went to Defunct MAC Rail Battery 1A, 14-7-18, at my insistence, for personal reasons. While we were there PO3 Ives, CN Erickson and CA Hendricks arrived unexpectedly and they were obviously angry with me. It was equally obvious that they intended to inflict violent physical harm on my person. Before they got the chance someone in combat armor showed up and rendered PO3 Ives, CN Erickson and CA Hendricks neutral. The person claimed they were there to keep an eye on myself and PO3 Wolfe and also made a few other cryptic remarks before leaving shortly before Security showed up. Also of note is that whoever was in that armor had, in my personal opinion, damn near perfect control of it to cause just the amount of damage that was done, instead of turning PO3 Ives, CN Erickson and CA Hendricks into greasy smears on the walls. Which would have been a shame. Those are beautiful walls down there. Like I told the security team, there’s a reason I’m not officer material. I tried to stall it, but I couldn't think of much to do so. It eventually walked through a wall, moments before the security team arrived.

Signed
Crewman David Raschad

Bzzt! Captain, Helen and I believe that we have scrubbed the errors from the audio data. There is approximately a 12.5% chance that there are errors within the transcript. We have checked the reports for verification.

Raschad: Come on, stand up... We're here. Open your eyes.
Wolfe: (Annoyed) If this is you showing me your...
(Pause, 5.2 seconds)
Wolfe: (Amazed) What is this?
Raschad: It's one of those funny things that happen when you recycle ships wholesale to make a new one. This was originally one of the MAC electromagnet lines, back when whatever ship the bulk of the superstructure came from had a MAC. However, when they first built the Theseus, they didn't strip everything out. When they first tested the slip drive, though, they must have realized their mistake.
Wolfe: Let me guess... The drive is right under some of the magnets?
Raschad: (Laughing) Got it in one!
Raschad: (More serious) I discovered it my first jump on the ship. I wanted to find all the little hidey holes. I think when they tested the slip drive, it interacted with the magnets somehow and did this to the walls.
Wolfe: It's like being inside a pearl or a clamshell...
Raschad: There's more amazing out there, but this is a rarity. You could build a hundred ships like the Theseus, have the same unshielded and unpowered electromagnet battery, and only see this happen maybe once in the lifespan of one of the ships. Anyway, they ripped the bank out, but left all of this. We won't go too far up that away, though. There's an old relay that got magnetized or something, and it makes me go all numb again.
Wolfe: This must go all the way along the central shaft!
Raschad: Yeah. Rip out the MAC, modify and widen the line, and you got a good docking ring or way to transport materials out the ship.
Wolfe: (Disbelieving) And you've been keeping this to yourself.
Raschad: Nah, a few others know about it. I mean, they've got sensors and junk in here, but the only way in these days is through the crawlspace. It's a good place to hide, though, if need be. Especially if you need to piece together your thoughts.
Wolfe: Thank you. I...
Raschad: La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la! Not hearing it. Besides, if we start that, we'll start with a bunch of other junk, and then I won't get back to medical before they realize I'm missing. And... We're both in enough trouble as is. I don't want to get you in any more just by taking you out here.
Ives: Oh, they'll realize you're missing, alright.
Wolfe: (Startled) Jesus! What the BLAM, Ives! You nearly... Raschad?
Ives: Something the matter, David?
Raschad: (Shallow breathing)
Wolfe: Mike. Jim. Lenny. Pleasure to see you. I'm guessing you're here to sell us some Duragast, so could you beat it?
Ives: (Darkly) Gladly.
Raschad: (Weakly) N-no need for violence.
Ives: Oh, really? Samantha, did he tell you why all this is happening? Did he tell you how he caused it?
Wolfe: (Cautiously) Mike?
Ives: He's from the Lebanon, Samantha. He killed, and he killed, and he killed. And even when he didn't kill them, he destroyed them.
Wolfe: (Angrily) That's bull!
Ives: Oh, we thought so, too. At first. But you know, I saw something that changed my mind. Their ghosts are here, Samantha. They're here and they want him to join them.
Wolfe: You don't believe in ghosts.
Ives: I didn't. But EM anomalies don't cause the thing I saw. No, it's the other way around. They've been walking about the station, trying to ask for our help...
Wolfe: (Snarling) They don't wear Kavacha armor.
Ives: That's what I thought, too. But I talked to the Chaplin about that. God uses metaphors sometimes. And if God uses metaphors, then so do the dead. That armor... is a representation of death to the enemies of of the UNSC.
Hendricks: He's cursed, Wolfman. Step away from him. The only way this is going to stop is if we stop him.
Wolfe: Morons. You honestly think you can take on both of...
Wolfe: (Frightened) Maybe you do think you can...
Erickson: With his history do you think we didn't come prepared.
(Pause, 8.2 seconds)
Ives: That's right, Samantha. You should be scared. You should run. Look at him.
Raschad: (Weakly) Run. Idiots, run.
Ives: (Chuckling) Oh, we aren't going to be the ones- (Interrupted)
(Sound of blow)
(Sound of impact with floor)
(Sound of blow)
(Sound of impact with bulkhead, floor)
Erickson: (Scream of rage)
(Sound of metal against metal)
(Sound of two blows)
(Sound of impact with floor)
(Sound of heavy stomp)
Unidentified Voice, Indeterminate Gender (UVIG): (Electronic alteration detected) Stay right where you are, or else next time it'll be your head.
(Pause, 6.8 seconds)
Wolfe: Who are you?
UVIG: A friend of a friend. I was asked to keep an eye on you two, to make sure you were kept safe.
Wolfe: Why?
UVIG: Six-three. I was also asked to tell you to visit a place that doesn't exist any more and go to a place there that you can't find. On a ship? Not such a good idea.
Wolfe: What?
UVIG: Don't worry about it. It would take too long to explain. My time's almost up. I should go before I have to answer a bunch of questions that I don't feel like.
(Pause, 3.2 seconds)
Raschad: (Quietly) Why me?
UVIG: He sees what they've done to you. I showed him. He thinks you're a brother of sorts. Anyway, seeya.
Raschad: (Louder) One thing!
UVIG: (Annoyed) What?
(Pause, 1.2 seconds)
Raschad: N-nice control.
UVIG: Excuse me?
Raschad: That armor you're wearing. I'm told it boosts your strength. Metal, too. And that was, what? Tae Kwon Do? I didn't hear any bones breaking. That's j-just enough force to knock the fight out of them and not enough to actually hurt them. I mean, long term. Good control on that.
(Pause, 3.6 seconds)
UVIG: Thank you. I... Um, thank you.
(Pause, 18.9 seconds)
Johnston: Security! Hands up!
Wolfe: Relax. We were the ones attacked here.
Johnston: What happened? Are you okay?
Wolfe: I'm fine. I need to file a report, a change of pants, and a cold shower.
Raschad: (Normal tone) I'll have what she's having. In reverse. Then back to medical for me. (Pause, 1.7 seconds) They need to go to medical and then the brig. And maybe an airlock. But that's why I'm not officer material.

Hive,

I concur with Raschad. Minus the airlock. Have CA Henricks, PO3 Ives, and CN Erickson placed in the brig after they're cleared from medical. In fact, place them in solitary confinement without visitation unless cleared by me first. I can't have this poison spreading to any other members of my crew. They are hereby under arrest for intended assault on a fellow soldier with deadly force, conspiracy, and premeditation of murder against a fellow soldier. I want Muldoon to speak to all three of them once a week and I want him to know that, judging from what I heard on the tape, I recommend they all be evaluated as potentially mentally unfit for service. Particularly Ives.

If it were me, I'd have all three of them shipped out on Section 8 via lifeboat. In them meantime, while they are in the infirmary, I want an armed escort watching them around the clock. I don't want the rest of the crew knowing WHY they assaulted a fellow soldier, however I would like to make it known just how much of a hardass I can be against those who do commit such heinous acts.

And get Raschad to me A.S.A.P.

How is the E.M. device coming along, Hive? When should we be ready to begin training Peters and Raschad?

And have that damned crawlspace closed up and sealed with level 4 clearance codes! I don't want anyone short of myself and XO McAllister being able to get in there without explicit permission.

I'm off to the O-Club. I need a drink. Have Muldoon meet me there, if he isn't busy. I want his opinion on this entire incident.

Thank you, Hive.

Captain Out.

Also, Helen, can you give me any information on the material that Raschad was showing Wolfe in the MAC battery? I'm making a conceptual link that a rare material sitting around heavy magnetics and a slipspace drive could be related to the EM anomaly.

Bzzt! Security teams have not let PO3 Ives, CN Erickson, and CA Hendricks out of their sight since delivering them to medical. As soon as they regain conciousness, they will be escorted to the brig for holding until further notice. Word of their attempted attack has spread, but not the details of their capture. Currently, the crew believe that PO3 Wolfe and CN Raschad defended themselves. Helen has been denying information in such a way as to encourage this belief.

Bzzt! CN Raschad says that he will meet you any time, anywhere.

Bzzt! Dr. Muldoon wishes to remind you that he would rather be crushed by a tuning fork manned by all the worst actors in the business than step foot inside the O-Club. He did give you the following message.


Captain,

I was actually looking to trap Ives for a little chat after talking to the Chaplin. After our little chat, we both agreed that he had hidden his paranoia from me as best he could, leading to my desire to talk with the Padre. Though a certain degree of paranoia is to be expected right now, this level... Not so much.

It doesn't surprise me that Lenny and Jim got talked into his madness. They were always listed as weak-willed and nervous. He must have sought them out individually. Rather sneaky, too; he's apparently found blind spots in the shipboard sensor array to speak with them at. Just another sign of his paranoia, I do believe. I'll give them a full psyche workup later. I expect to have my sexuality questioned at least two times, amongst other things.

Chalk this one up to space madness until then.

Also, David seemed to conjure the brilliant idea to get himself a court martial. Don't worry, I talked him down. I reminded him what it looks like on one's record to have a doomed ship and be found guilty of insubordination when one is looking for a job. He'd have to leave UNSC planets entire and go to an innie planet, and even they'd treat him with suspicion. Plus how it would look on Samantha's record.

By the way, I'm keeping her longer now. Oh, boy the talks we're going to have! I haven't enjoyed my job so much ever since I was banned from trying to teach a Smart AI Zen Buddhism.

LT Muldoon

Bzzt! The device should be done and ready for testing within ten hours.

Bzzt! The crawlspace is secured. A randomly generated 125 character alphanumeric code has been uploaded to your CNI.

Bzzt! Just a reminder! The power systems on the station should be complete within six hours. We will begin a slow fusion test upon checking of all systems. If successful, it will be powered down until all systems are installed.

Hive,

Let the three of them know that slandering a war hero will not be tolerated. If they have evidence, they can submit it through the proper channels - but they'll definitely need a ton of evidence. Otherwise, I'll go back to the regulations and find more charges to throw against them.

Also, prep Raschad for the meeting by acknowledging that Raschad has done more than his fair share for the UNSC and by offering an honorable discharge for both him and Wolfe (at her consent, of course) upon solving our (and ONI's) problem with these EM anomalies. [Helen, fill in Raschad as you see appropriate - if at all]. Stress, however, that we need his full cooperation.

Captain out.
