Chair, I've been meaning to ask: could you provide date and time stamps on those audio files? It's getting harder and harder to keep track of F484's progress in them.

Captain,

Sorry about the delay in a response. I've actually had a decent hole in security all day (not quite enough for a full data package, though) but all of this has been giving me a terrible case of insomnia and nightmares. Here lately, I've been lucky to get four hours of sleep a day. If it wasn't for coffee, I don't know what I'd do. Unfortunately, exhaustion finally got the better of me. I don't want to know what people were thinking of me, sprawled out over my desk and snoring.

The fact that nobody woke me up, though, says something.

Unfortunately, all the time/date stamps were corrupted by Myung's presence. When I say we had to crack the static, I mean it. The entire data log was horribly corrupted and we're still trying to figure out the details. However, we have determined some things by what else was going on at the time.

The Covenant vessel that arrived at the ring was destroyed on July 24, 2568. On July 25 of the same year, F484 reported that he was en route to the Cartographer. On July 27, the Monitor of the ring showed up, so they had to have already left the ring by then.

Exact dates are hard to pinpoint. Here and there, however, were recorded events that we know that F484 was involved in, some of which will be part of my data packages. When applicable, I'll go ahead and mention the date, simply to keep you from becoming too lost.

Trust me, we're still trying to figure out how to unscramble a lot of the suit's data. Consider, we've put multiple smart AIs through their entire lifespans doing nothing but trying to scrub the junk free from the data. It's enough to boggle the mind. We can only imagine what we'd discover if we could just get a clear video of Myung without her helmet on.

Oddly, the Monitor of the station didn't cause such data corruption. That raises some interesting, if terrifying, possibilities.

Sincerely,

Chair

Going back to C463, how did she die, exactly?

For that matter, what were the last things F484 and Myung were noted doing?

Your whole story has gotten me thinking. If this device that can turn people into "guides" exists, then the Halo-engineers must have had a way to turn living beings into electronic thought. What if an accident in such a device caused their minds to be thrown out into space...and onto my ship as the EM anomalies? This is why the fate of those three people is so important; if I have ghosts showing up on my ship, then I get the feeling that the way these people were lost may apply.

One more thing. I have a crewman on this ship, CN Raschad, who supposedly had Orion testing done on him. Would you be aware if he, at any time, interacted with F484?

Captain,

C463 died during OPERATION: DADA. While moving to the extraction point, they came under attack by Insurrectionist forces. An IED landed close to the VIP they were escorting, and she dove on it to smother the blast. Though she survived the blast and continued to fight, a piece of shrapnel moved within an artery until it reached her heart. She died before they made it to the Pelican.

I'd like to remind you that this was before they had access to Kavacha armor. The fact that she survived both the blast itself and the hydrostatic shock (though the autopsy showed both kidney and brain damage from it) is a testament of the augmentation process that the Orion IVs went through.

An interesting theory, Captain. One that I unfortunately don't know enough about. Only two humans ever went to this reported guide production facility, and much of the process is simply unknown to us. We're talking about an alien process that somehow turned a human into an AI, complete with a humanoid form that could easily be hidden within a suit of Kavacha armor, all within a timeframe that makes our cognitive impression modeling look slow in comparison.

We not even certain what process was used to turn her into this Guide. I wish we had more. There are quite literally billions of questions that we wish F484 would have asked Myung. Fortunately, we realize that he did ask a lot of vital questions, sometimes through subtle ways. Some answers were gained simply by him being there. We gained valuable intelligence on the Insurrectionists on Niflheim, UNSC turncoats, Insurrectionist fleet strength, several key identities... And that's not including what we learned about the ring itself or the race that built it.

I wish I had better answers than that, but I'm also not that kind of geek. My majors in school were psychology and sociology.

The possibility of them meeting? Slim to none. The Lebanon incident was in 2382, and your crewman was defrosted in 2602. The last confirmed direct communication between F484 and any member of the UNSC was on April 13, 2569. The possibility of them interacting is zero that I'm aware of.

Are you starting to gain a real grasp of why we're so interested in what's going on out here?

Sincerely,

Chair

Yeah, I can see why you folks would be interested. It sounds like sci-fi.
Then again, a few centuries ago, slipspace travel would have sounded like sci-fi.

Things now seem strangely calm over here. I await the next part of the story.

Oh, by the way, any news on where the brass want the Theseus once we've finished building this station? We'll only be here for a few more days, and I'd like to start making plans now, while things are quieter.

Subject: You know what they say...

Captain,

The calm before the storm. If this is F484, and I'm all but positive that it is, the next couple of days will get... interesting, to say the least. Call it an educated hunch.

The fact that you're making such progress means I'll have to step up my game, too. I'll have to skip some of the details that aren't particularly important. Medical logs, full battle analysis, figures... I hate to do it, though. The devil is in the details, they say, and they're right. It is.

I've focused on the defining moments of his career. Not the battles, but the true moments. The things he carried with him beyond the debriefings. I didn't tell you that he was the one who ensured that at least one member of each fireteam had incendiary ammunition and WP grenades when they realized Grunts breathed methane. (To be fair, it didn't make a huge difference, but the psychological impact on the Grunts was measurable, and a Brute whose fur is on fire usually doesn't concentrate on their enemies.) I didn't tell you about when a Brute lifted him by his neck, ready to end his life, only to be saved by a Marine.

To him, those were just battles. The data he collected (and Science Corps always collected data, even on simple missions that nothing "interesting" happened on) was more important to him than the fighting. Then again, he was the kind of boy who beat up bullies because they were a better test of his skills than the geeks, freaks, or oddballs. At the age of twelve, he had a notebook on theories of fighting, based on physics, biology, and martial artists he'd observed. I knew the day that he started getting heavy into psychology because there are notes about not only the mindset of the fighter, but the opponent as well.

No, I'm focusing on the things that meant something in the long run. The fall of Reach. The loss of C463. Those are the things that you need to know. Because if I'm right, he's about to drop a hornet's nest on you.

Which will make the total debriefing of every single crewmember that wasn't in the freezer during all of this more annoying to you, I'm sure. But like I said, if we both make it through this (without me facing a firing squad without a trial) I'll be there for your debriefing. I haven't forgotten our agreement. I've gotten the dress picked out for that dinner already.

Sincerely,

Chair

P.S. I never could get into science fiction. I'm more of a fantasy kind of girl. I even used to LARP when I was a kid. Yes, go ahead and mock me.
