Event Update: Kyprian

**kzzt**

Listen, Goggles. I know you’ve been busy tinkering with your precious event livestream, but… I wanted to talk to you. About your resource shipments. I heard you say that you and that botanist have been trying to put together evidence to give to the Bridge Crew, to try to win them over with logic and helpfulness. Well. Don’t bother. That bunch of sun-drenched Upper Crust hypocrites will drown you in so much useless bureaucracy that you’d have an easier time breathing outside the airlock than shaking off their regulations.

But… I can’t believe I’m saying this…

I happen to know that K- uh, that the Commander spends a lot of time in his private Bridge Archives, when he needs to clear his head or whatever. *koff*… *hchh*… He’s the only one of the whole batch who’s not completely worthless, and it’s damn certain that he’s perfectly sunny about putting his faith in the wrong people, so he might just hear you out. Maybe. If you catch him at the right time.

Just — don’t take your alien slug up there with you. You hear me? If I give you override access to get into the Bridge, you can’t bring that thing anywhere near him. And I’ll be watching, so if it looks like you’re so much as considering hurting Kyp- the Commander, I will literally eject you into space without a helmet. Okay? I don’t care if I have to escort you into the Black Hole myself, I won’t let you lay so much as a finger on him.

D-direct access to the Commander? A chance to present all of my data to him in person? Thank you, thank you s-so much! I knew that if we kept working hard, we could finally get you to trust us! Mwahaha!

Yeah, see, Goggles, coming from anyone else that might have sounded like evil laughter, but the most that you can muster is just “sickeningly earnest”. Maybe don’t do that in front of that Review Committee of yours unless you want them to pat you on the head.

I’m transmitting the coordinates to your map now. Do not make me regret this.

Oh, and one last thing… maybe don’t mention to the Commander that I was involved in this. Not a big deal. I just like my privacy, is all.

Sure, yes, absolutely. Let me prepare all of the data and charts that I’ve been accruing about our impact…

Nibblug, I’m sorry to have to ask you to leave, b-but we’ll meet up again afterwards, okay?

Affirmative! HYPOTHESIS: Lycus needs to be as credible as possible while conversing with the Commander. Nibblug = safe with Marisol and her Insector friends!

Thanks! Why don’t you meet me back in the Core when this is finished. Hopefully I’ll have some g-good news to report...

Now, let me follow this map… Uh, that’s a lot of transport units… are we going to the very top of the Solarium…?



These computer systems… The holographic inlays… The stars… Even after all that t-time traveling through the Tatters, it’s still…

W-wait, look! Outside, swimming through space —

There are s-so many of them, in every single color I can imagine…! I can’t comprehend how people on this spaceship became so convinced that Kith were evil. The h-helpful Ulusives in the Black Hole, the cheerful Nibblugs in the Core, the Insectors who care for the plants, and now these… I m-mean, they’re radiant. How could they be responsible for an attack?

…Yeah.

Well.

Just because you’re drawn to something doesn’t mean that it’s a good idea to pursue it.

This twice-scorched transmission doesn’t make any sense at all… I didn’t think we even had any remaining external-focused transmissionbots that were still operational in the Core, but this reads like it was written by three of them? Not to mention the fact that the situation they’re describing is entirely ludicrous, even with all these attached charts. I only wish that… And how in the galaxy did they somehow have access to my private transmission logs? That seems like cause for-

Ah!!!



Pardon me, but these Bridge Archives are entirely off-limits to civilians. Please forgive my exclamation. It is simply that I was distracted by my work when I entered the room. Allow me to escort you to the exit. Ah - wait -

…This may seem a bit unconventional, but it seems that… I have just received a transmission from a very confused robot that contains several labeled photographs of you. This one contains the spurious claim that this young man has been granted administrative access, which I certainly did not approve… This one calls him, ah, an “interstellar interloper”…? …And this last one is quite articulate, but is addressed to the former Commander, who has been dead for years?! What… what is…

Ahem. Mr. “Artois”… “Ambassador of the Remnant of Hope on the Planet Earth”…? Uh huh. I am Commander Q. Kyprian of the Cosmic Solarium, formerly a space station of the pre-Ultranoval International Solar Fleet, and I would like to politely inquire as to why you are in my private Archives, and how you gained administrative access to my private transmission codes.

U-uh, y-yes, I… U-um… I’m…

My n-name is Lycus Artois, and... and the messages that you’ve received are accurate; I’m... I'm not from this space station. I grew up in a Remnant of reality that survived the horrible destruction that you call the Ultranova. After we received a distress signal that one of your transmissionbots sent through the Black Hole, we knew that we had to make contact with you.

I know that you have limited resources; I know that your station was badly d-damaged in that attack, regardless of what you’ve told the civilians in the Crust. I-I understand! I understand what it’s like to think that you’re alone in the universe - for a long time, Hope thought that we were the only survivors, too. But you're n-not alone any more, and we want to help you. We may not have your same advanced robotics, but we have tons of access to food, a-and water, and materials… Not to mention the fact that some of our friends from other Remnants have powerful… uh… “technology” of their own.

So y-yes, I am an Ambassador of the Planet Earth - one small part that remains of it, a-anyway - and on behalf of the Remnants, I would like to offer you, um, relief aid, and maybe trade as well? I-if you look in your transmissions, you’ll see all of the data that I’ve collected over these past few weeks aboard your station. We’ve helped repair broken technology in the Core. We’ve provided vital assistance to your botanists in the Crust. If you work with us, we’ll be able to do so much m-more! I mean, even your friend who hides behind his PA System has been willing to work with us, and-

What friend? I don’t know any-

Wait, have you been working with Elliot?! He gave you the codes for my private Archives?! That’s- He thinks-

.....

I… apologize for my unseemly outburst, Mr. Artois. It seems that you have been laboring under a considerable misapprehension. Mr. Grant does not consider me a “friend.” Indeed, I sincerely doubt that there is any person aboard this station whom he loathes more…

That being said, if Mr. Grant has indeed been assisting you, that speaks quite highly of your abilities. Certainly he would not endorse this meeting without considerable proof that you were able to back up your seemingly-impossible claims. He may be justifiably bitter, but he would never knowingly allow any harm to come to this station or its citizens.

In fact… you must have misinterpreted his general concern for the wellbeing of the Solarium to be personal regard towards myself. Yes, that would explain your confusion. He would surely be considerably displeased if he learned that his general solicitousness had been mistaken thus. Ah… Mr. Artois, if you might… refrain from mentioning my reaction to your erroneous announcement, I would be… much obliged.

That… really w-wasn’t the impression I got, but… Sure, I guess I must have been m-mistaken? Uh, anyway, please, um, take your time reviewing my charts and documents, and l-let me know if you have any questions about the data! I also told Rigby to include some d-diagrams of the resources that Hope has available.

And, uh, if that… doesn’t seem like enough… Uh, there’s a chance w-we’ll even be able to provide more in the future! I mean, I’ve been pretty occupied with this trip into space, b-but the way that I discovered the distress call in the first place was because I was doing experiments on the Tatters - that’s our version of the Black Hole - and my research was looking very promising. If all goes well with the samples I was planning on experimenting with in my lab, and if I am indeed able to isolate the correct frequencies, we may be able to offer even more water for your systems! Of course, I’ll need to finish recalibrating my Stabilization Detector, and this new Solarium technology has introduced several significant variables, uh… to my equations, but… U-uh…

A-are you… still l-listening…?

…My apologies. A minor moment of nostalgia. I do hope you will pardon me most sincerely for my lack of professionalism. I assure you, I am quite fine.

Ahem. Mr. Artois, please allow me to take a few moments in private to review your data and digest all of these... revelations. I will need to discuss all of this new information with my Bridge Crew, of course, as well as bring their attention to several fairly egregious security breaches, but you may retain access to my auxiliary Bridge Archives for the time being. I must insist, of course, that the primary sectors of the Bridge remain entirely off-limits. Is that understood?

If you’ll excuse me. I will be in touch soon. …Please excuse me.

Thank you, Commander! Let us know if we c-can help in any way!

Mwahaha, YES! I’ve got to get back to the Crust to tell everyone else the g-good news!
