YE 43
RP Location
Spora Orbit
It had been several years since the events of Operation Icebreaker and little reason had been given as to why the orbital installations needed to be restored when the planetside facility was still nothing more than a memory and deformations in the ice of the barren planet, but the work was to be done. Several combat engineers had been sent out on this task with the first group having lost contact a few days in, probably an accident with some space debris or an accidental reentry while working on one of the defensive stations. There was still quite a bit of wreckage floating about making the work site too dangerous for most of the civilian staff and everyone in a while a body would float by mixed in with the trash.

Good progress was being made and while working on a satellite that looked to have been hit head-on by a shell one of the newer workers floated over to the squad lead Nix. "Boss this isn't salvageable we should just grab the black box and go."

Nix was a old looking Combat android no flesh and other bells and wistles like new models of his elk but more of Metal rubber and carbon fiber. wearing the Psychopomp uniform and working alongside other more "living" units. He was informed the problems with the newer individuals being like this, but it still annoyed himhow much this generation of hirees wasn't as good as the older ones. hopefully that changes with time.

Nix let out a frustrated groan as he looked at the new worker. "we've been paid to get a job done, If you feel like your too fragile then I'm sure we can find a replacement for you in due time. As it stands good progress has been made to get this thing back in shape." Pulling out the laptop in his Personal repair kit he would scan his current position for any electrical In the computer components or circuits. before polarizing his lenses and pulling out his laser device.

"Now if your ready to start doing your job get me some plating and our IT guy up here I Found some components that need to be repaired and I need him to run a diagnostic once I'm done with that, dismissed."

The new blood started to float away obviously grumbling though he wasn't broadcasting it over comms. Shortly afterward the tech, a woman Nix had worked with multiple times before came from around the other side of the structure. "You shouldn't be so hard on the kid, he hasn't seen combat yet, probably due to the fact his boss leads one of the science teams and is keeping his precious little boy out of danger. But still, you won't make any friends being a grouch." She then swiped some schematics over to Nix off her datapad that overlayed what components were in need of replacement and which ones just needed a simple patch.

As she moved along the frame she would send updates of the schematic back to Nix so he wouldn't have to come back later and could see which components had issues deeper into the frame than he could access currently. The new blood however was making a show of how bulky his suit was by fumbling with a stack of plating as he bounced his way back to the satellite.

Nix nodded. "Right sorry, If that's the case he must be very sheltered." Taking the schematics He would wait till the new blood is bounced his way back to him with the plates. after accepting them Nix told the New guy to stick near him. "hey sorry for how I reacted were all stressed and pushed to a deadline here and I understand how rich that is coming from an android but for what it's worth I'm sorry. On that note If you can assist me over here, I'll see about getting you on board the next Combat engineer training op for combat reasons so your boss doesn't worry too much."

Plugging the schematics into the laptop as they come in Nix would make varying noises as he contemplates how to best handle the situation After calculating the work they had managed to put in Nix looked to the new guy. "Hey call it in that this job will take about a week before it is fully operational mabie less we've already put in a week's worth of work in very little time." Nix would radio the IT specialist. "Hey so with completing a week's worth of work in a short time being here if we keep the pace we should have this done in a week tops the hard part is once we fix this things structure and components you're gonna need to repair the whole systems software I don't envy that job," Nix added with a playful chuckle.

Tapping the new blood on the shoulder he would direct him outside handing him a pair of protective goggles that came with his blacksmith portable repair kit before polarizing his eye lenses again and began welding the new plates into position as the new guy hands them to him.

The new blood was keeping good pace with Nix. "Thank you, sir. I've sent the itinerary you just sent back to the overseer." He said after a while before going quiet again.

The tech was silent for quite some time probably arguing with logistics about the parts she'd need versus the parts they were trying to give her. If it didn't happen at least 5 times per job it usually meant something was wrong. When she did finally begin speaking to Nix again he could tell she was mentally exhausted. "Well, you were right, as usual. The parts are going to take longer to get shipped here than a week so I guess you'll be schooling me in poker again in the meantime."

The new kid looked at the surface of Spora for a bit slowing down in his work. "Why do you think they want to get this place going again? The research facility is crater in the ice now what is there left to fix?"

Nix let out a chuckle. as he spoke to the IT specialist, "and this is why having a computer for a brain helps with these calls. Hmm I'll think about it but I'll have to warn you. My poker face or lack there of hasn't changed much." Nix would continue his work on welding the plates only to stop breifly to ponder how to explain the situation with someone most likey not paid enough to know.

"Offically they just want to be able to have this place fixed up and ready in the off chance that they need to use it again. for the love of god dont tell others about this or it could get you me and everyone on the job let go or brigged." he states looking at the It and the newhire to hammer home hes serious. "Unoffically their are tales that may or maynot be true about that crator of a research station having created wmd's and cybernetic orginizms that man was never ment to see. ones that changed the corse of many things before fading in obscurity. tales of a detachment of soldiers undead in nature held together by machines and programming or tales of the fabled lazuras project. are there truths to it whos to say but they are all tied to that facility and if i had to harken a guess why were are trying to get the defensive satalite working again its not to defend the site but to keep things from getting out." Nix said pouposly in his robotic monotone voice so as not to confirm or deny that any of this was true or false."

"Well there isn't much else to do out here." The specialist replied. "Unless you want to investigate the old crater down there of course." She continued pointing at the surface.

"I for one would like to see. I've heard tales of the stuff that the company doesn't tell us about and I have a hard time believing it to be honest." The new blood piped in excitement clear in his voice. The surface seemed quiet other than the blizzards that wandered it's surface. "At the very least we could go down and experience the wildlife, sure beats being in space all the time."

Nix turned to the it person and the new guy weighing his options. "okay well since we have a few days till the needed parts get here to fix this thing, instead of having to hurry up and weight I guess we can go take a look." holstering his torched he looks at the two of them. I shouldnt have to be the one that tells you this but stick together and try not to touch anything both due to the danger it may possess but also we dont want the company to know we went down there exactly."

putting out a closed comms message to security teams and those with similar wants to do this sight seeing. he returned to the group. be ready in 10 minutes we will be going down. looking to the IT person Nix would ask. "So out of curiosity do you have any files on a psychopump unit by the designation Ty sibo? I know alot of what i am was based off of its work and as far as I can tell alot of its spacifics are blackboxed."
