    Doctor Greyson, Doctor Greyson...! We just got confirmation!
    [D] The Waverider protocol has been activated!"
    [G] Ah, great. The wait is over.
    [G] Now let's prepare DAVE and the equipment for the final stage of the project.
    [G] Did you save the latest data from the listening posts?
    [D] Of course, Ma'am. DAVE is already processing the parameters and adjustments
    [G] Good. This will be a giant leap for mankind. DAVE?
    [DAVE] I am already starting the routines, Doctor.
    [G] Time left?
    [DAVE] The event will take place in 22h and 25 minutes at about 16 00 local time

    <sender Dr. Katelyn Greyson>

    [servo] You got a new assignement. Opening file.

    [H] Servo! Can you please check the message folder?
    [H] I am quite sure there were no assignments when I was checking the inbox before we went to bed!
    [servo] I am afraid I can not give an answer. No logs are available for the specified time.
    [H] Hm.. interesting. Seems that everyone is becoming crazy the closer we get to the leaving date. Even the station AIs..
    [H] Servo, please lock down the cabin after I leave and make sure my properties are loaded to the transport shuttle.
    [servo] Of course. Goodbye and good luck riding the wave!

    [G] There you are! What took you so long?
    [H] Hey Doc! Seems like the internal com has some issues..again. I did get your assignment note only a few minutes ago. Someone will have to look into this mess tomorrow whe..
    [G] Sure, sure. Now - lets get started one something important. Timing is key.
    [G] The tech team has installed the new transceiver that will allow us to track a cosmologic event, which is happening only each dozen years.
    [G] We want to pick up that signal and investigate the results, so the fleet can probably make use of the data.
    [G] Let me quickly check the status. DAVE?
    [DAVE] Processing requests.

    < Door opening >

    [D] Doc, the wave array is read...oh, hi Joe! Coming over to help us?
    [H] Seems so. Something you guys broke .. let me guess..maybe.. cake in the sequencer again?
    < two persons laugh >
    [D] Ok - cu later over at the Titan!
    < Door opening >
    < Lab Access module request. Code

    [DAVE] Dr. Greyson? The data has been sent to your terminal.
    [G] Thanks DAVE.
    [G] Turns out, your access permission is required to complete the installation, Joe. And, while you're at it, lend these guys a hand as you know how to work on the system best.
    [G] Chief Kuehn is down in the engine section
    [H] Ok Doc, no worries. We'll get this transceiver online in a minute.

    [K] Joe, I told you several times that will not work this way!
    [H] Hey, we had to try it at least! It seems that this whole installation is flawed. This is like trying to put a B-connecor into an A-plug. DAVE, whose idea was this?
    [DAVE] ...
    [K] Greyson said, we have to install this.. and time is running out, she said. Whatever this means. Probably because our shift is over in 1 hour!
    < several persons laughing >
    [H] Ok, new idea. You will stay here on the console and I will go down to the Core and reboot that whole thing. If this does not work..
    [K] It better should. Ok, I will tell Dawson to check the power level.

    [H] What does this mean, DAVE? I am the security chief!
    [DAVE] Check the locker on your right. It holds a new type of energy-based survival multitool.
    [DAVE] Switch to DMG mode to use its beam for attack and defense.
    [H] Wait..what?
    [DAVE] Check your com please. We have some strange alerts piling up. This might be an attack or a terroristic action.
    [DAVE] Please head to the hangars and take one of the shuttles. The evacuation has already started.

    [H] DAVE! This internal turret is firing at me! Is it not enough that all the other...aliens...creatures..that are suddenly all around in the station are after me?!
    [DAVE] Trying to find alternative route.
    [DAVE] I managed to overload a sub processor. You need to get up to the hangar control and shut it down.
    [H] Sounds like fun!
    < weapon fire >
    < biological noises >
    < weapon fire >
    < Access module M1 destroyed >

    [DAVE] Commander, we are about to loose the station to the intruders.
    [H] Genius. As if I would have not noticed that! That's why we brought all the staff to the shuttles, right?
    [H] Now I am sitting here as the only one that is cut off from the transport ..
    [DAVE] There is a scout ship docked on the hull outside the hangar B.
    [DAVE] You can use that .. in case you manage to get on the other side of the B hangar.
    < biological noises >
    < weapon fire >
    < Airduct sec 01 unlocked >

    [DAVE] Use the air duct on your right.
    [H] This reminds me of something ..
    [H] Ok, tell the transporter pilot to start. I will make it to hangar B.

    [DAVE] Commander, I am measuring increasing energy levels. The station is about to explode!
    [H] This is getting better and better..

    [DAVE] I am afraid my security protocols are failing.
    [DAVE] I am uploading a data package to your suit. Please handle with care.
    [DAVE] This is all I was able to grab from this .. desaster.
    [DAVE] Good luck, Commander.
    [H] Thanks DAVE.

    Side note: this chapter was a playable scenario in A9 ... might come back as a single scenario if I find the time.

    Yes please. Also make it that the rewards would be either Epyc class or CPU special components.
