I have recently stumbled upon the existence of Iemochi Health and Psych, and see a niche in which it can serve more people in a decentralized form, including those in active service. I invented the Star Army Bunk Bed, Type 40, which is for sale in both civilian markets and is standard issue on the new Plumeria 2E and Chiaki 1B refits. It has the ability to connect to its own BedNET legacy network as well as the far more widely implemented Virtual Collective Experience. It is designed for things including simulations, training, and telepresence. Upon seeing the services you provide, I was wondering if you would be interested in implementing a program through which people could seek psychological treatment via telepresence. I could see it being done for veterans and active personnel, for those children in Tsubomi, for refugees, and even regular people on a far wider scale. You could perhaps have psychologists be able to do this from their own homes rather than commute, and even have an option for avatars in cases where people seek to maintain anonymity.

I have also opened Tokyo to refugees, and these refugees will need skilled medical professionals. As such, I am interested in allocating buildings to this division of your company to assist as soon as possible for the more direct and conventional methods of intervention and healing to which you are already accustomed.

Greetings!

Your proposal is more than interesting, Administrator Kage, it's intriguing. Of course, we currently hold the contract for post-service care regarding the Star Army's veterans so it's quite excellent you've contacted us.

This new technology could help us in that cause immensely and we'd be happy to jump on the opportunity. Of course, the proposed function will only be available when SAINT allows us to communicate with vessels. I'm sure they'd rather not have a call accidentally reveal a position to the enemy.

This could very much improve the well-being of our armed forces and I applaud you for creating the technology. We stand ready for whatever implementation process you forward.

Sadly, I can't make the decision myself to help with the refugee situation as it doesn't fall to me. Our fabrication fleet is currently out helping the same noble cause elsewhere from what I know and the company still needs its revenue. Our spending out of pocket to help is possible, however.

It may be a step too far for management but I'll defer this up to my director, Iemochi Chiyo. She's quite busy but will reply as soon as she's able, I'm sure.

All the best and congratulations.

I feel that I should clarify something, just in case. I am the "Defacto Administrator of Himawari Tokyo" because I have been given ownership of the land of the old city and all within it. I am not a governmental representative for the populace, but I am its sole landlord and also own the company which manages its utilities and maintenance. As such, it was my intention to grant you use of facilities within the city for your work, not to ask exclusively for a handout. Tokyo also has a comprehensive fabrication system of its own. What we need are skilled people. In regards to the facilities on Tokyo, it is that which I ask for, though I fully understand that too to be at a premium at this time.

As for telepresence for soldiers, it should be possible to use the existing rules in the Star Army for personal communications, though I concede that it is always good to verify such things first. In addition, if you did this over VCE, you could access my invention as well as the assorted other civilian offerings created for the VCE standard. I don't know how exactly to navigate the health care system to ensure you are paid for your services in that regard, as that is not my area of expertise especially considering that health care is nationalized to a degree, but I'm sure there's a way to get it done.

I welcome the input of your superior, and await her response.

It's good to talk with you, Mr Kage. Apologies if I refrain from using your title, as I feel I'd only offend you by getting it wrong.

I believe Miss Niniko may not have explained things in the best way, sorry Nini, dear. She was reluctant to commit her company to such a task as she thought - quite rightly - by agreeing to potentially give away capital without informing me would be a bad move.

I'll convey in her place that her meaning was that she was unsure who would be funding the staff for their work. Our contract with the Star Army has clearly defined parameters - as is the case with government contacts - and there's no guarantee those would stretch to refugees as they are not service members or veterans.

It's true we have been engaging with many philanthropic gestures recently, which have been costing us some capital. I can tell you now that if yourself, the government or the patients are unable to pay I will do so. We have ample resources and our bottom line hasn't particularly been scratched by recent events. Of course, if any of the above would subsidise wages I'd be able to send more people. Treating several million displaced people is not going to be cheap.

Usage of your facilities will be very apt in the task and I may even make a visit or send my sister as an envoy if time allows. I'm glad you're able to offer such facilities as otherwise we would have been constrained by infrastructure.

In regards to telepresence, you can consider that proposal approved officially. Once we're sent the connection specs I'll set my brother on the telepresence scheme. We should be able to adapt and expand our commercial in-home service fairly easily do accommodate the SA.

This reminds me, one thing you could do for us as gesture of goodwill is to consider mentioning the MAW rifle line to your colleagues. We've had the weapons ready to be offered to the SA for a while and it seems to have been pushed to the back of our priorities list by recent events.

If you need anything, don't hesitate to ask.

Formalities aren't necessary on my end. I endeavor to give them where prudent, but I do not demand them unless a member of my crew has an ongoing respect or authority problem. The standards for the VCE are rather public and it is already possible for a user to set up a way to set up a virtual environment called a realm in which to meet others, select avatars, and determine if the site is private or public. One can even operate in real or accelerated time. These things alone, which are made available to the public at large, are enough to get you started with one-on-one or group sessions. A formal and specialized program can be built if desired, but may require the permission of the Tamahagane Corporation. Previous experience with this group, however, leads me to believe that this endeavor would not be difficult.

My personal wealth is likely nowhere near your own, but I am a multi-millionaire. I can supplement your donations with more of my own. I tend to keep it as a nest egg for emergencies or R&D, and this counts as such. I am willing to grant you twelve facilities within Tokyo right away for medical care.

I am not able to simply recommend a weapon that I have never used before, but I can see about purchasing some from you and making them available to my Power Armor teams on the Sakura II for testing on ground engagements should we find ourselves on them. We tend to use unusual and prototype equipment anyway, the ship herself included. That way, my personnel can test them out and review them on their own merits.

Are there plans to make a version capable of use in space such as with a railgun-like delivery system? How much would the weapon and ammunition cost for me to obtain?
