It took me a while to track you down, Gary -- you've covered your tracks well, but I still know a few tricks...and a few people. Which is part of the reason I'm waiting.
Ever since I left the Army a couple years back I've been working for UNATCO. It seems that they're a better organization with their methods. I've got my suspicions about other things, as well, but I'd prefer not to get into them over an open line. Doesn't matter --they've discharged everyone who didn't come to them right out of UNATCO Academy spouting the party line, so I'm gone as of today.
Heard you had your own difference of opinions with the military research establishment and took off on your own. I'm not sure what you're working on, but it might be related to something another friend of mine has uncovered and I'd like to help. Let me know if you need another hand. It'd be good to see you again.
Wish Me LuckEdit
I'm about ready to leave, Dad. Carla and Stacy have done their best to outfit me with everything I need. You know, when I was a little girl I never really fantasized about being a spy or thief or a princess... I always wanted to be a scientist, just like you. Methodical and careful, that's exactly how you always taught me to work, and that's exactly how I'll be.
I know we'll see each other before I leave, but I wanted you to know how proud I am of you and what you're doing, and how glad I am that I can be a part of it. Mom would have been proud of you, too. I just don't know if I can say all that when I'm standing there in front of you, so this will have to do until I get back.
I'm starting to pick up some signals on the temblor sensors consistent with a small assault force. I'm not sure if they think that little of us, or if they're just in such a rush to stop us that this was the best they could manage. Either way, I hope those Hong Kong bots we got from your mysterious benefactor can do the trick. We've probably got an hour before they arrive, so I'm going to go run a systems check on the bots before everything goes to hell. --Carla
