    This subroutine has devised a course of action. Check to determine whether our vessel has any means of cloaking field. If so, activate and move towards repair bay, while monitoring Chaos intelligence activity for our detection. Apply intelligence countermeasures to ensure stealth.

    HELIOS-DEVICE is becoming unstable and will be detrimental to our continued survival. What are the chances jettisoning the device towards the rear side of the Chaos fleet will remain undetected? Are they improved if we are constantly hacking the Chaos detection equipment? If we use the planet's gravitational well, the Device will approach from vastly different vector than the one we would use to approach the repair bay.

    Basically, we should cover-up our move to the repair bay by throwing a nuclear hot potato at the Chaos fleet, destroying most of them.

In the chaos after the Massacre of the Bleak Gate, the unveiling of the Adeptus Mechanicus' "God" and it's destruction and banishment of the Tyranid Swarm and their Daemon-Swarm pawns, Humanity scatters across the universe using Eldar webway technology and super-long range Immaterium drives. Segmentum Solar uninhabitable at this point after 29th Black Crusade.

    Keeping our 'self' cloaked seems like a major bonus. If we can hack and subsume the repair substation, maybe we can make the whole thing invisible.
