Project ThesisEdit

Transcript

Initial studies have lead us to hypothosizeIn-game spelling, punctuation and/or grammarIcon sic that by taking a known piezoelectric material, Lead Zirconium Titanite (PZT), and properly applying a polymer of Gold and Lithium Hydride that a localized conversion of ionizing radiation to electrical energy might be achieved. This method of compact energy harvest may prove suitable for application to preexistingIn-game spelling, punctuation and/or grammarIcon sic Power Armor currently in use by the US armed forces.

-Dr. Ericka Elwood-Woolum D.Eng

Thermal dissipationEdit

Transcript

Initial tests have proved that the methodology is sound. Radioactive energy harvest is 15x higher than current automotive fusion engines. Unfortunately, there are still problems that we need to overcome. The ionic excitation in the gold that produces the harvestable electrons also createIn-game spelling, punctuation and/or grammarIcon sic a build up of thermal waste. The heat is not substantial, from a macro perspective, but due to the low shear modulus, the gold suspension in the nano weave starts to break down quickly under extended use. We are going to attempt to change the dosing pattern on the gold to produce thinner strands through the material. The increased surface area should help dissipate the thermal energy, much like a heat sink.

Tensile strainEdit

Transcript

The newer dosing patterns have been successful at dissipating the heat generated by the reaction. We've taken a slight hit to the harvest efficiency, but extended the static material lifetime from a matter of days to aIn-game spelling, punctuation and/or grammarIcon sic several years. While this is, from our perspective, already a successful experiment, the project parameters require a flexible lining that can be applied to power armor. It seems we understimatedIn-game spelling, punctuation and/or grammarIcon sic the tensile strain the armor produces and the thinner gold weave in the material ends up shredding, so to speak, under the heavy use. Col. Kemp was less than pleased, and threatened to pull the funding if we can't produce the promised results. So we need to go back to the thicker weave and find a different way to solve the thermal dissipation issue.

TrappedEdit

Transcript

We've been trapped in the lab for days now and tensions are running high. The team is fractured and falling apart. They don't know what is going on outside and have started making attempts to escape the lab. While I was sleeping they managed to cut a hole through the thinner interior wall of the clean room, but have been unable to break through the hardened outer wall. Wil started talking with some of the others about going at the problem from "a more oblique angle", which got me to thinking about the thermal dissipation problem when it dawned on me.

If we change dosing pattern so it isn't producing nanoholes perpendicular to the surface but instead at an angle, we might be able to reflect the most direct radioactive particles and trapping only those coming in at an oblique angle to the material. We would achieve a lower energy harvest, but the heat dissipation issues might be solved. Tom, Mary, and I are going to gather the samples needed to try it.

We're so closeEdit

Transcript

We've been unable to gather the samples needed to try the new dosing pattern. Wil has locked himself in one of the labs, and has been attempting to hack into the administrative systems. When we tried to get the U-238 we need from the isotope containment, he locked it down leaving Mary stranded inside. He said he is going to set the facility defense systems so that it looks like the lab has been breached. This will unlock the clean room, but will also activate the automated defenses which will see us as attackers.

He means to fight his way out, but that's suicide. He's the only one in the lab with military training, and we don't even have real weapons. I've tried to tell him that we can complete the project, that we have the answer now, but he refuses to see reason and doesn't believe Jon will actually let us out. We've managed to pull down part of the ceiling in C1, which will get us into the utility crawl space. It can't get us out, but it should be able to get us above the lab Wil has barricaded himself in. I don't like it, but we have to get the drop on him.

[W. Bergman] - I'm getting us outEdit

>> I'm getting us out

I'm not letting Jon play tyrant any longer. The isotope containment is leaking and he still won't let us out. I've gotten through his updated security subroutines and it's only a matter of time till I get control of the Facility Defenses. He's so busy trying to keep me out of the Clean Room Controls, he probably hasn't realized that by triggering a Facility Breached sweep, all the doors will open to allow the robots access.

We're fighting our way out and then I'll deal with your husband.

>> Confidential

Ericka, I've sent and explanation to the team, but I need you to know what is actually going on. Please do not share this with anyone else, it may start a panic. This morning I got a call from Col. Kemp and he told me to keep our team in the lab, but before I could ask he hung up. The sound you heard outside was an atomic bomb going off. It seems to have hit south west of the city. The phone lines have been jammed, but I found a way to reach Kemp's liason and he informed me that they could only afford a detail to escort us to safety if we have vital military assets or intelligence. That is why we need to get the project finished.

I love you and I know you can do this.

>>Mandatory Overtime

Good morning everyone, I know you've all been here over night and everyone is tired but I need everyone to push through just a little longer. Dr. Elwood-Woolum has said that you are very close to cracking the problem with the Nucleostrictive lining project and I have a good feeling that today will be the day. Along with our normal snacks, I've sent a runner to Slocum's Joe for coffee and donuts. We'll be ordering Spuckies later this afternoon. I also just got off the phone with Col. Kemp and he said there may be some training exercises happening around town today, so if you hear what sounds like tanks or gunfire, don't panic, it's just a drill.

[E. ElwoodWoolum] - Isotope ContainmentEdit

Transcript

Sender: [E. EldwoodWoolum]
>> Isotope Containment

Wil, this is insane! Even if you manage to hack into the administrative controls, do you know what will happen if you trigger a security breach? Yes, the doors through the clean room will be open, but the first thing through them will be a wave of robots to kill every living "Intruder" in the lab! Even if we manage to get past them, there are also the turrets. There's one right here in the lab, remember? If you do this you are more likely to get us all killed than set us free!

[J. Elwood] - Hacking AdminEdit

Transcript

Sender: [J. Elwood]
>>Hacking Admin

Wilfred, do you think I wouldn't catch on to what you're doing? I got a network alert the moment you took control of the Isotope Containment. You may have been the best hacker on campus back at CIT, but that was years ago and while you were busy up in Alaska, pretending to be a soldier, we had the best programmers working on our security system. I told you weeks ago that I'll let you all out of the lab once the research is completed. Locking Ericka and the rest of the team out of the Isotope Containment just to spite me doesn't accomplish anything.

I want it on record that I HIGHLY object to giving admin rights to anyone that isn't on our core team. Admin access isn't a bauble for Doctor Williams to lord over his colleagues. We have designed a nigh perfect system and idiotic moves like this risk EVERYTHING.

I have been informed that legally I must comply with this request, no matter how moronic it is.

[J. Elwood] - Lockdown statusEdit

Transcript

Sender: [JElwood]
>> Lockdown status

Everyone needs to just calm down. Yeas as you've heard by now, I have locked you out of the clean room. As my previous email stated, this push to finish the project IS mandatory. As soon as I have the data for a successful prototype I will unlock the doors and everyone will be free to go home. To address concerns about the noise outside, those are the military exercises I mentioned. I'm aware they're very loud and that some of you have been disturbed by it. I assure you everything is fine. Though we are not openly at war with China, things are stil tense, and the military feels that ground defense exercises are necessary to our safety. Finishing our project here isn't just vital to the company, but also to helping protect our country.

Call from KempEdit

Transcript

Just got a very strange call from Col. Kemp. He asked what the statues on the project was and when I explained that we were still behind schedule he didn't seem angry like he normally would. All he said was that it was very important that I keep the team working in the lab today and that I contact him as soon as the project is complete. It almost feels like he was trying to tell me something but I can't imagine what.

It was a warningEdit

Transcript

He was trying to warn me. They hit us with a nuke. The lab was built to withstand nearly anything but a direct hit, but the EMP has blown out all the external communications. I told the team that there are training maneuvers going on around town, but I don't know how long they are going to buy that. I need to find a way of to get ahold of Col. Kemp to see if they can extract us to a safe location. Even if I can find a working phone somewhere, I'll never be able to get through. Maybe if I can get ahold of a ham radio I can try to reach them on an open channel.

We have to finish the projectEdit

Transcript

There are looters everywhere and people fighting in the streets. I managed to find a radio and some supplies, but caught a stray bullet in the shoulder on my way back. Between that and the radiation sickness the past 36 hours have been hell. I finally managed to find the right frequency and get through to a military liason, but he said that Kemp had left orders that they could only spare an extraction team for assets vital to war effort. If we try to have them get us without the project completed, he'll have us executed for treason. I have to keep them in the lab, we have to finish the project.

Can't hold out much longerEdit

Transcript

There's been a problem with the reactor. The shockwave from the inital blast must have cracked the containment lining, because there is a growing leak showing up on the detectors in the lab. To make matters worse, Wil has been trying to hack into the administrative controls. I've been working to keep him out, but I think the wound in my shoulder may be going septic, and I don't know how much longer I can hold out.

Ericka, please readEdit

Transcript

Ericka, I'm sorry.

I know I haven't been the best husband, but I've done everything I can to try and protect you since the attack. If you are reading this, I hope it is because you finished the project and can use the radio to signal for extraction.

I can't hold out any longer.

Jon, are you there? I can't see you moving in your office and we can't wait any longer. He's going to trigger the automated defenses if we don't do something. We've managed to get into the crawl space and are going to try and take him by surprise. Despite everything that's happened, I want you to know that I still love you.

I'm getting us out of here, you son of a bitch. Do you hear me Jon? You may have had the connections to get this company started, but I always the better hacker. If you don't release us, you'll leave me with no choice but to trigger the automated defenses. We'll have to fight our way out and Erika may be hurt in the process, is that what you want?

I've got the thermal problem solved, but we need the samples to produce a prototype. Wil's barricaded himself in a lab and has locked us out of the isotope containment. I've told the others what is going on, and they hate us for it, but they see this is the only way out right now. We need you to get back control so we can finish the project and get out of here

>> RE: Confidential

Jon, I don't know if we can do it. We've been working on the problem for weeks and not been able to find a way to prevent the nanoweave from falling apart under the strain of use. Even if we find a solution, it may take days to program the new dosing pattern, and I don't know if I can cover this up that long. Even if I can, I don't know if it's right for us to make that decision. Some of them have families out there, and should'nt they have the choice to try to protect them?
