My thoughts:

It appears to me that an ONI “Official” logged in as [DARE.V.500341(S1) (possibly standing for ONI Section One)] from a UNSC Prowler ( “Tokyo Rules”) has requested access to a classified archive from an A.I. known as [SUPERINTENDENT].

A query is run looking for a particular user/station [COMM.DUTY.OFFICER], with a narrowed search using the following keywords: “EMERGENCY” “DATA” and “CORRUPTION”.

Shortly after a transcript is brought up, which details a conversation between the Officer and the Superintendent in which said A.I. is alerting the officer of a “Metropolitan Emergency”, and the Officer’s futile attempts to engage the A.I.

The ensuing dialogue between the two seems to indicate that the Superintendent has been corrupted or badly damaged in some way. The Officer attempts to reach someone [Kinsler] who is presumably in the same location as the “Super”, however the A.I. either refuses to cooperate or is no longer able to. The officer makes reference to a “core data corruption” that is likely to have caused whatever emergency is taking place, this could also be the reason for the malfunctioning A.I.

PLEASE REMAIN CALM

My Thoughts:

DARE is back again it seems, though without a time/date stamp it is hard to know how much time has passed between messages. This time DARE is accessing a TAC-OPS LOGISTICS DATABASE [ONI.SEC.PRTCL-1A] (Tactical Operations?) and is attempting to reallocate resources. What follows is a transcript between DARE (Captain) and the Admiral of a heavy cruiser, “Say My Name”. SMN is doing battle with an unknown assailant while at the same time DARE, who seems wholly unconcerned with the battle, keeps steering the conversation towards his “squad”. By then end of the conversation it is more or less revealed that the “squad” the Captain is requesting is aboard SMN. Who is this squad?

Hopefully we find out tomorrow. 😀
