    You're Sleipnir Interstellar, a subsidiary of a megacorporation known as Solutions Tactical Finance Unlimited. Assisting you are another subsidiary, Aperture Science. Using their intuitive shower curtain technology, you have revolutionized inter-planetary transport amongst so many other things.

    Rival megacorporations include Alien's Weyland-Yutani, Avatar's RDA, WoD's Pentex, SMAC's Morgan Industries, Bladerunner's Tyrell Corporation, Fifth Element's Zorg Corporation and a mysterious newcomer.

    Last session, we stopped in the Year 2160 and shit's about to go down. You're guessing that Pentex is fucking with Pandora and that they're trying to exterminate all life on it, for one reason or another. Oh, and STFU is now taking any cash that you have left-over each year.

    Also, last time we managed to speed up a little bit, so I want to try and keep that up, eh? Also, since I had some free time during the week, I wrote out some stuff about Ares. Some of it's technobabble, some of it's interesting. You'll have to see for yourselves, if you want to have a look.

    So, gentlemen, do you want to play a game?

    Right. For anyone interested in in depth information on Ares, have a link:

    First few pages are pure numbers, then the next few pages after that are combination of fluff and numbers, then it's pure fluff about the flora, the fauna and the native intelligent life.

    Year 2160:

    Ares is going along just fine, really. The New People have conquered the Blessed, with your assistance.
    Pandora's still rotting.
    You own 11% of RDA.
    Weyland-Yutani owns majority shares of RDA.
    There are no more RDA shares left for purchase.
    There are no more Pandorium engines left for purchase.
    The Tyrell Corporation has completed its functional immortality research and you recieve it as well, without being detected. Transhumanism is now a reality. Right now, it's still private.
    Pentex requests UN permission to euthanize Pandora.

    With what's happening on the surface of Pandora, have any of our orbital assets been able to figure out what's happening?
    Related to this: Has Deirdre Skye's team been able to make any breakthroughs on bio-neural networks, specifically the one found on Pandora? We may need to interface directly with the Pandoran planet-mind soon. If progress has been slow, we may need to forcibly acquire RDA's Avatar Program research data. Having the genetic blueprints for the Na'vi bio-neural interface system might help her research.

    Does the blockade around Pandora prevent us from landing personnel on the surface, or is there any way to land a team stealthily in order to rescue some Na'vi, either to get the story or at least be able to study them and better understand the cause of their degeneration?

    Why does this bother me. The tone is too foreboding.
    Somehow I think Pentex might be trying some shit on our planet. I propose to increase surveillance. Build a dozen spy satellites with best equipment to search for umbra veil stealth and teleportation.

    Ask you colonists to look out if anything is suspicious. See how natives are doing.

    We are co-blockading with Pentex, and they have stealthships. They're probably watching all of ours.
    I'm thinking we'll have to go through the UN on this. Seeing as how the Na'vi have degenerated so much, maybe we should declare the previous arrangement null and void due to the protection obviously not having worked out.

    I think we must cut out losses, guys. This not really our problem.
    Pentex fucked up the planet and there's nothing we can do. I think they will land on the planet and "find" a cure to the cancer, save the world and become heroes.

    I guess the only thing to do is to land and try to save Jake Sully and his tribe (plot narrative and plot armor demand that they have been untouched).
    The other thing we could do is to give research on Umbra to RDA and tell them what Pentex is doing. RDA should still have countless trillions of $ we lack to deal with them.

    We are making the same mistake again as we did during the Neptune crisis. We are focusing too much on one thing and discarding others.

    Begin producing Attack Drones in Hermes. Small, fast, armed with a single mass driver and maybe some one-shot missile launchers. With those, we could massively increase our coverage, and if we're going up against eight Pentex ships, it'd be nice to have them.

    They should be able to attach to our warships for carrying, since they'd be too small to mount interstellar drives.

    Guys, I don't know if you have noticed but there has been an alarming tendency that our rival corporation are forming alliance blocks to gain more power.
    Take Pentex for example, they have Tyrell, and MNU (or was it Zork) helping them. I guess Tyrell does all the amoral bio research, they cannot disclose it and don't gain too much profits so they work together with Pentex. MNU provides Pentex with military weapons/starships. And Pentex does all the evil intelligent leader stuff.
    The trend is, that all of the most evil corps are banding together.

    Now, I am not trying to say that we or other are "goody" corps. We are still a corporation but more in traditionally "moral ambiguous" way.
    These other fuckers are clearly mania chaotic evil fucks.

    I think we should try to work together with other more "normal" corps, maybe form an alliance. Morgan industries are already a "friend" of ours. RDA hasn't done anything bad towards us (as far as I can recall) and they aren't too evil, just greedy.

    What do you think?

    You successfully hack. The Lone Gunmen give you the results.

    The biological weapon is essentially green goo. It eats, breeds, eats, breeds, eat and breeds at an exponential rate unlike anything natural. It could theoretically consume all biological material on Earth within three days and then consume itself within another two, leaving nothing behind and nothing alive, reducing the planet to a rock.

    Judging how Pandora is smaller than Earth, reduce the estimated time taken to reduce it to a barren wasteland to three days instead of five.

    Year 2161:
    STFU says that if you are in dire need of cash, they will consider giving you a loan if you request one of them. These loans will have no interest for two years, then it'll be 5% per year. They are not changing the deal.
    One of the Lone Gunmen, "Haglund" has been founded hideously maimed and murdered in his own home. He has been placed in such a position that his hands are stretching apart his rectum in a gross, truly horrifying and sickening manner, gore spilling out of the orifice. On his back, a message is carved: "WE KNOW MEMES TOO".
    The populations of Hermes and Ares have come to a deal. The population of Hermes has moved residency to Ares in order to save on resources, although they will still go to Hermes via portals for work.
    A rising star in the corporate world, "Chrysalis Corporation", has joined the space race and has sent out its first probe.

    Place the other members of the Lone Rangers under protective custody in a secure corporate facility. Make sure all guards are thoroughly screened and that the moving of each member is kept low-key or secret if possible.

    Also make sure the new residents from Hermes on Ares have buildings/a site made to protect them against the planet's wildlife, and there should be security personnel in place to prevent any kind of trouble between the two races.

    Change two Earth Yards to building superstructures for Cargo ships, only necessary modules, they are to be loaded on with cargo modules created in the yards. Also, can we make the Pandorium engines modular? In that case prep two of them for the cargo ships which we then ship to AC where they are put on Warships.

    Oh I remembered something!!

    Guys, I propose one of the long term goals!

    We should seek to gain independence from Earth general. As the things stand now, we spend money (not resources) to gain new stuff, we need Earth market to supply us with money. But if something happens to Earth (like major disaster) then we are fucked too or if we fall out of favor we will lose money supply and our assets.

    Right now, with more investment we could turn Ares into Earth level society and could use it instead. Since we are basically the owners of it, we wouldn't even need to expend money. Only resources from the planet.

    But Ares shouldn't be the only failsafe. We must make more colonies. The factor that is holding us back is the population. Earth has 10bil+, our colonies just few hundred. Of course we can't just make more people outright so we should do as >>10697171 said.
    And invest heavily in robotics. The we could swarm non-habitable/hostile planets with robots who could turn the planet into a major powerhouse (think terminators running the planet, hopefully without rebelling).

    But at this moment, we must keep sending more people and supplies to our established colonies.

    We need to start getting our money back. Set up a new corporation in our characters' names, but keep it down low. Slint hires our new company to do the work we would usually do ourselves. This gets around STFU's restrictions, giving us a nice cache of cash, which, once we get enough amassed, can be used to buy our freedom from STFU.

    Shit, this now means that the Board can be present on Ares in one second and on Earth the other! Deidre is definitely going up for this.

    One Ares yard should build something that makes us able to produce Morphs there, thus meaning that we won't need to ship large cryo units forever to get personell to Alpha Centauri.

    Okay, I'm proposing to tell the UN that we wish to send a research team down to the surface of Pandora. SLINT will take full responsibility for the safety of the teams. We can argue that the agreement between us, Pentex, and the Na'vi is now void. We want to try to save anything and anyone we can before the Pentex weapons drop from orbit.
    What we then do is tell Skye to use the recently finished bio-neural research and try to talk to Eywha, the Pandora-mind. Use appropriate buffers and firewalls, of course.

    My Humble Suggestion to you, Our Fair Advisors and Board Members-

    Without having some form of money saved away, we are going to have difficulties when we suffer a set back- without liquid assets saved we may suffer irreparable harm.Indeed, our Agreement with STFU requires we spend the money, but now how.

    So, here's my suggestion.

    Create various 'dummy' research/study group companies- hire minimal staff, in rented offices.Have them produce tri-annual reports on subjects of low key interest like clothing trends, food trends, ect.

    Funnel money into these companies, but keep them off the public market, no open stocks for purchase.

    If we need resources, you liquify all the assets, and you have a few billion dollars for emergencies.

    Also, since it is our major profit stream, I suspect shenanigans will arise soon. I hope we are spending as much as possible to protect our assets.

    Oh, since one of our super agents is dead.

    What about our portal shielding technology? It's currently exorbitantly costly, almost uneconomical really. It's also only supposed to work some of the time.

    With our contest researching anti-ordnance technology such as MNU's 'disco' shield I think it's important we give our ships a deterrent of some sort, if not an actual distinctive advantage.

    Could we add 'enhanced portal shielding' to the list.

    Oh, and we might want to construct goo fallout shelters on both Ares and Hermes. Just in case Pentex is up to no good (which they obviously are).

    Everyone, help yourself to a fine cigar.

    Okay, then put some money into founding a research team to work on human avatars, as >>10697927 said. And on the counter measures too.
    We could be able to create bioroids using the avatar tech. Examine this possibility.

    Going with this, then.

    Right, let's do this.

    Slight change to the Pandora expedition. Have Skye undergo the transhumanism process. The copy-Skye will talk with the planet-mind. The original-Skye will remain safe and act as a baseline to check the copy for infection.

    I also propose to dump all the remaining money into creating a self-standing part of Aperture working on Interstellar portals.

    Yes. It will take years. Yes. It will take trillions. But we gotta start somewhere. Also, given our energy transfer portal tech we now have an unlimited supply of energy as long as we are in a star system.

    If we set up portal energy collection stations around stars, we can use the energy compiled there to power the interstellar portal networks.

    True, we need some form of FTL sooner than later.
    Also, we might as well begin building some massive construction facilities/mobile starship for these purposes, otherwise that project would take a century.

    Our expedition should also search for any kind of Umbra taint. Have our scientists back home work in conjunction. we need to gather all the evidence that it was Pentexes doing.

    Colony ships to Eta Cassiopeia, 40 Eridani, and Delta Pavonis. Escort them with warships from Alpha C; we have enough time to build them. Either that, or send them to Alpha C first and fit them with armament.

    Only if we had interstellar portal research, which we haven't even come close to, yet.

    Quick question: we currently have 3 pandorium engines, I know RDA is out of stock (and business it seems) but could we find someone else to buy one from? I know it wouldn't be cheap, but I was just wondering.

    Fine, since someone so desperately asked me to answer the questions, let me say that no, the common people on Earth do not know about Ares. You have not told anyone or advertised about any of your main discoveries. It is likely, however, that Alpha Centauri based corporations know everything that you're doing there.
    >> Anonymous 06/23/10(Wed)19:59 No.10698329
    So far as I know we haven't told them yet.

    No doubt Pentex and its Alpha Centuari probe already know, so maybe the other megacorps do as well.

    I'm not sure that we should revel details of them to the population at large just yet: conservationists will probably have a go at us, claiming we're making another Pandora, next thing you know *BAM* UN restrictions.

    Also, by building the additional warships, drones, etc, you're well out of cash for this year, so you don't have to worry about ordering anything else, guys.

    Hey, if Pentex can completely and totally corrupt a world in a few years, what makes you think they'll stop at Pandora?

    I don't suppose you could follow a general "expansion" order if we don't mandate every single construction and colonization project?

    How about we set up a formal meeting? First contact with "advanced civilized" alien race (Na'vi are excluded as they are just glorified tribals).
    Of course we will be the ones to arrange it, and we will be the first people that the race will "officially" meet, circumventing UN and other countries. Imagine how smug we would feel :)

    This is not really a suggestion, just wanna know what anons will think of it. We can't keep them secret forever. Sooner or later one of the corps will try to fuck us up.

    Also, Plasma. How about that colony on Chiron and casual chat with Morgan?

    You know, considering how much power these megacorporations are having- it's only a matter of time until just ONE of the bigger Megacorporations goes all "Fuck Earth!" and the Principality of Zeon is born!

    You know this, right?

    And then a colony gets dropped...

    Firewalls won't be too much of a hinderance to an AI, especially if its already inside your facility's network.
    What would be more useful are manual overrides and interlocks, things to physically lock the AI out of certain subsystems. Or keep them on a separate network from the beginning.

    Oh, ok...

    >claiming we're making another Pandora, next thing you know *BAM* UN restrictions.

    Ares is independent highly advanced planet, they do not shove away technology like Na'vi, in fact they strive for further development and understanding.
    UN could try whatever but the last word stands with Ares.

    Alright, we should wait till we uplift them to Earth level. Are we still working on that? Keep feeding them information, have construction yard supply them with .. stuff. Build advanced facilities on Ares, you know, all shebang

    It's a distinct possibility.

    People on Earth will be interested in discovering new sentient life, we could produce and sell documentation of them and their culture.

    The only thing I'm worried about is that people will have a go at us for interfering with them.

    I can see it being used as a PR boon "Never again will their be another Pandora, from here on all Humans must attempt to work with and come to an understanding with our alien brothers, I have a dream! A dream that my 4 little human children will be able to play in the valleys of Lacedaemon with other little alien children! I HAVE A DREAM!"

    We might not want to advertise it as First Contact; Pentex or some other megacorp might decide to release video showing us as helping them win a world war of unification.
    We should get our PR department to think of some good spin, first.

    As for Morgan, yeah, let's ring him up. Ask him if we can help on Chiron in any way. Oh, and how's Zhakarov doing?

    Pentex is already doing that. The have eradicated entire civilization and are (probably) leaders of one or two other civs in Umbra.

    We are also working towards this goal with Ares, Chiron and other colonies.

    You could also do the Magi System, specially since our wetworks and neural interface technology is quite advanced.


    Should explain most of it...
    A system of three supercomputers running on backup wetware designed to offset any chance of ONE AI going by giving all three equally powerful decision making abilities.

    Yeah we should be granting sovereignty whenever possible and making it very clear we are acting cooperatively. In fact, we should be thinking about our PR right now, so we're prepared when the public inevitably learns of the planet (and the inevitable attempts by our enemies to wrest control from us through lies and slander.)

    Not to mention that two of the three must agree to support a consensus, or nothing happens. Unanimous approval is required for drastic action like a self-destruct. Seemed to work pretty well in the show.

    Since it is so likely, it unfair, nay truly unjust to have our research, our development and OUR prize to be wrested away from our hands due to some corrupt bureaucrat, or some simpleton politician !

    We discovered it, WE sacrificed for it!

    I suggest a massive, top secret militarization program to build our OWN forces, and become our OWN might, to rival any fool that might take our future!

    Which you know, served them very well, even when faced with massive alien forces that even attacked them at the technological level.

    Having a triple support system like the Magi Should be standard issue for any AI Computing we do. It's relatively efficient, safe, and has good PR possibilities- keeping that HUMAN element in the loop of decision making at all times.
