Personal NotesEdit

Transcript

The official explanation for the "accident" in the FEV lab remains unsatisfactory. Facilities has nothing; they simply refer me to the Director. And he's keeping something from me. I've been around long enough to see it.

I wonder if he ever considers the ramifications of what he's asked me to do? If he worries that having me build a synth that's supposed to approximate him as a child might give me some unintended insights into his character? Probably not. And to be honest, it probably won't.

Research Proposals Edit

Human Cybernetics Edit

Transcript

Proposal:

Build on existing Institute research into implants/cybernetics to augment human capabilities and lifespan. Previous program met with limited success in a single subject; using a broader array of subjects and new techniques could prove highly effective.

Approval:

Rejected - Director
Notes: None given

Cold Fusion Edit

Transcript

Proposal:

Divert time/materials from current Phase Three research to exploring the possibility of sustainable nuclear reactions through electrochemical processes at or near room temperatures. Pre-war work on the subject yielded no concrete results; advances in technology could potentially make it possible.

Approval:

Rejected - Li.M
Notes: Evidence suggests this is, and always will be, a pipe dream

Miniaturization Edit

Transcript

Proposal:

Modification to Relay assembly allowing for extra parameters when re-materializing, specifically to explore recalibrating object size and density. Imagine if it were possible to use the Relay to shrink someone down to the size of an insect... or even smaller!

Approval

Rejected - Watson.E
Notes: Let's keep things out of the realm of science fiction, please.

Plasma Weaponry Edit

Transcript

Proposal:

Pre-war plasma weapons exist, albeit in a somewhat primitive state. Samples have been collected; with work from a dedicated research team said weapons could be improved upon dramatically.

Approval

Pending - Li.M
Notes: Something to consider, after Phase Three is complete

Personal Notes Edit

Transcript

Dr. Li has been spending more and more time in her lab with the kid. Synth. Thing.
It's creepy, and I can't help but wonder if she's getting a little too attached.

Evan has rejected my last 12 proposals. I don't know how to get through to that man at all.

Personal Notes Edit

Transcript

I cannot believe Doctor Li would betray the Institute. Objectively, I recognize that she's gone, but... I just can't believe it.

Everyone is acting like it's business as usual. No one even wants to discuss it. It's maddening. I guess all we can do is move on, and be grateful for the work she did while she was here. That, and hope she doesn't give the Brotherhood enough of an edge to destroy us all.

Regulation Updates Edit

Transcript

Submitted to Directorate for Approval

** Review permissions for assigning sidearms to personnel. SRB recommendations to increase security have over-ridden any normal procedures for allowing Institute scientists to carry firearms. Training for said firearms also needs to be updated.

** Reconsider inter-departmental network access. Certain divisions appear to be abusing this.

** Security systems need to be reviewed by Facilities Division ASAP. Given recent events it is extremely important that the Institute be prepared for any conceivable situation, no matter how unlikely. Dr. Ayo has requested this for some time, and I am now inclined to agree with him

Personal Notes Edit

Transcript

I have, in the last 24 hours, observed no less than seven blatant violations of Institute protocol. The degree to which people appear to ignore the rules which have been put in place to keep us all safe is incredibly disappointing.

Madison insists that I continue the testing battery with the child synth, despite my reservations about the project as a whole. If this were any other situation, I would not have second thoughts about going straight to the Director, but given the circumstances, I shall simply wait it out.

Personal Notes Edit

Transcript

No one believed me. I warned them. I said that she couldn't really be trusted, that she wasn't honestly one of us. This is why we don't allow outsiders into the Institute.

Now she's gone, and has taken who knows how many secrets to the Brotherhood. I've scrubbed her terminal for any sign of data removal; there's nothing apparent but that doesn't mean it didn't happen. She was annoyingly clever.

Fancy Lads Snack CakesEdit

Transcript

It just doesn't make any sense. I've run the diagnostics. Quadruple-checked the neural mappings. Done comparative analyses of taste buds. Tracked digestive patterns. Hell, I've even gone so far as to simply ASK several of them, and still, I'm no closer to answering the question:

Why do Gen 3 synths like to eat Fancy Lads Snack Cakes?

I mean, sure, they have the capacity to experience taste. Every Gen 3 possesses the synthetic equivalent of the requisite receptor cells. But why this? And why all of them?

Good thing it's physically impossible for a Gen 3 to actually gain weight and succumb to obesity. Wouldn't that be quite the Achilles' Heel? Humanity's most impressive technological achievement - laid low by junk food.

Synth Zoological Initiative Phase 2 Development Journal

Initial thoughts...

What to create? We've engineered creatures that inhabit the sky and the land - the next logical step is a creature of the sea.

The greatest challenge remains data collection. Accurate measurements, behavioral data, life cycle, habitat, etc.

Might Nahant have something useful? Note to self: request that we allocate a scavenger team to that area.

So which aquatic creature makes a good candidate. Start with size. Nothing toIn-game spelling, punctuation and/or grammarIcon sic large, nothing too small.

Most promising candiates: genus delphinus, genus Carcharhinus.

On-site habitat will be a logistical challenge. Expansion of Bioscience likely necessary, including large water tank. Many logistical challenges to implement, Facilities division likely to oppose this.

Have to pitch this as the first step in a broader plan: What else can go in the aquatic habitat? Can we grow food there? What other experiments could we do? Could we develop underwater synth models to carry out seabed salvage operations? Probably far-fetched - need to work on this more.

Will table this journal for the time being, focus on other priorities until I can come up with more reasons that we'll benefit from the aquatic habitat. Can still gather data in the meantime.

Warwick Homestead InitiativeEdit

Mission StatementEdit

Transcript

The Warwick Homestead Initiative was conceived to facilitate field testing of various genetically-modified specimens in the unique climate of the Commonwealth. It is hoped that we gain insight into the effects of trace radiation on the growth and developments of said specimens.

We of the BioScience division are in full agreement on the following hypothesis: subjected to the proper levels of ambient radiation and soil ph such as those found in the exceptionally fertile soil at Warwick Homestead, our modified seed specimens are likely to exhibit accelerated growth rate and a two-fold increase in size.

Project Implementation Edit

Transcript

Stage 1:
Using genetic manipulation, we will develop a unique breed of Cucurbitaceae with similar characteristics to those commonly farmed in the Commonwealth.

Stage 2:
Acquire Roger Warwick, patriarch of Warwick Homestead, and conduct a series of intensive interrogation sessions to learn all we can about his life and family.

Stage 3:
With the intelligence gathered in Stage 2, create a synth replica of Roger Warwick and embed the unit on-site at Warwick Homestead to oversee the operation directly. SRB will handle logistics of this aspect of the initiative.

Stage 4:
Begin covert deliveries of prototype seed batches for planting.

Stage 5:
Collect observational data from embedded unit.

Stage 6:
When sufficient data has been collected, retrieve synth unit and specimens for lab study. Purge all surface evidence of the initiative.

Behavioral Anomaly Report Edit

Transcript

Director Holdren,

Here are the details you requested re: the gorilla behavioral anomalies.

- A total of 16 incidents of heightened aggression have been documented.

- BioScience personnel who witnessed these events, myself included, would categorize the level of aggression displayed as extreme and dangerous.

- In all, six synth handlers have been destroyed by gorilla attacks.

- As for what triggers these behavioral changes, I speculate that it's a reaction to perceived conflict. Several attacks followed heated arguments that took place within earshot of the pen. Another occurred soon after the recent SRB security sweep.

- It seems clear there's a fault in the behavioral model. I doubt it can be corrected. I know you're against it, but I think we have to consider destroying them.

- Failing that, I recommend that all contact with the gorillas be limited to synth units only. BioScience personnel should not be permitted to come into contact. The risk is simpleIn-game spelling, punctuation and/or grammarIcon sic too great.

- Karlin

Our Special Guest Has ArrivedEdit

Transcript

Now that our guest of honor is here, I want to remind everyone to be polite, accommodating and welcoming. It's not often we receive visitors from the surface, and this occasion is more special than most.

I know I can count on all of you to extend a hand of friendship and greet our visitor with the utmost hospitality. Let's embrace this exciting event and make the best first impression we possibly can.

Power ConservationEdit

Transcript

When we first implemented the new power efficiency guidelines, I was proud at how well we were able to meet those standards with only a minimal impact on our productivity. It was a daunting challenge, but we rose to meet it.

Lately, however, we've been getting lax in our habits. Too often I'm finding lights and equipment left on when they shouldn't be, and the environmental settings have been changed without my authorization.

Let's re-dedicate ourselves to doing what's right for the needs of the Institute as a whole. After all, this isn't just our home, it's a home for the future generations who will carry on the great work of building a better future.

Synth Zoology - The Next StepEdit

Transcript

I have some exciting news to share with all of you. Father has approved the next phase of my proposed synth zoology initiative, and I'm already in the process of setting up a schedule for the initial prototyping phase.

As has always been the case, this is a low-priority project, but those of you who find yourselves with free time are welcome to contribute. I'll need to make a few preliminary decisions, not the least of which is what kind of creature we'll want to replicate.

I don't have to tell you how eager I am to begin, and I can't wait to see what amazing things we can do given our recent advances in synth development.

Kellogg, Conrad - Enhanced Life ExpectancyEdit

Transcript

July 16, 2285

Kellogg's occasional presence continues to unnerve the others. At first, I thought they were merely intimidated by his confidence and arrogance. Or perhaps even afraid of his general being. Kellogg is, after all, a killer. But as I've continued to witness their reactions, gauge their sidelong glances, I've detected something else, something I probably should have anticipated - jealousy.

Kellogg is a living memorial to a forgotten program. He is an augmented human being, a cyborg really, and the benefits he has received cannot be denied. But really, the scientists here could not care less about enhanced reflexes or greater combat efficiency. No, the cause of their envy is something more practical, more primal - his enhanced life expectancy.

Just how long will Kellogg live if he passes naturally (however unlikely that may be)? It's hard to say. He's already more than one hundred years old. Older, certainly, than any other human in the Commonwealth. His complete physiology has been altered. Perhaps he'll make it to 150. Maybe even 200.

Let the petty have their petty jealousies. Kellogg is a living testament to the ingenuity and superiority of the Institute. And I take no small pleasure in knowing that must irritate him to no end.

Personal NotesEdit

Transcript

The wait continues.

Ayo can only confirm sightings outside Vault 111, and again in Diamond City sometime later. What that means, I'm not sure. Will we actually meet? Was this all for nothing?

No, not nothing. I will have learned valuable things about myself, my past, either way. I cannot afford to let emotion get in the way. I must simply observe and record.

I'm told Kellogg has gone offline. Strangely, I find myself thinking of Dr. Walker. He had such high hopes for Kellogg. Such faith in the implants, and what they could mean. I still regret eliminating that project, but I know where it would have led us. Walker was never shy about his goals, and too many others were starting to listen. In the end, I believe I was justified. The Institute is about preserving humanity, not some bizarre amalgamation of biology and technology.

Impending Arrival Edit

Transcript

Our monitoring of events on the surface has confirmed that the time is almost at hand. Very soon, our guest will be here. I admit that I feel both hope and trepidation when I think of how our first meeting will go.

Please make whatever preparations that you deem necessary. Consider all sensitive information to be classified for the time being. We cannot know for certain what our visitor's motivations will be, especially after coming into contact with the Railroad. We will exercise caution, but we must also extend a warm welcome. In time, once a measure of trust has been earned, we can be more forthcoming.

I need not remind you all how important this is to me personally, but I want you also to think of the opportunity for the entire Institute. We stand to gain a great deal if we make the most of that opportunity.

Power Conservation Update Edit

Transcript

I recently met with Dr. Li to review the latest power distribution metrics, and there is both good news and bad to share. I'll begin with the good.

It's clear that we have all taken to heart Doctor Li's request for a greater emphasis on power conservation. The metrics demonstrate that we have improved our efficiency across the board. I'm particularly proud to note that the Robotics division has shown the most improvement in this regard, surpassing even Advanced Systems. Well done.

Unfortunately, the efforts we have made to date are simply not enough. We must continue to find ways to conserve without adversely impacting our research and production. I know that what I'm asking is difficult, but I'm also completely confident that we will rise to the challenge.

I have some ideas that will be discussed in the next Director's meeting. Until then, I ask that you please keep the need for conservation foremost in your thoughts.

- Father

Concerns re: Child Synth Prototype Edit

Transcript

I'm concerned at the pace of our progress in correcting the problems with the child synth prototype. I cannot impress upon this division enough the need to resolve these issues quickly and completely. Time and again, we've corrected flaws only to see them return. I find myself questioning whether we're thoroughly testing these fixes before moving on to the next item.

You know that I have great faith in all of you, but time is quickly running out. I must ask that you take whatever measures are necessary to meet the project targets within the time frame.

Please make this your foremost priority.

Missing Synth Investigation Edit

Transcript

It has been brought to my attention that some of you are displeased with the methods and practices employed by the SRB division in its ongoing investigation into the missing third-generation synths. I'd like to take a moment to address this matter.

Firstly, know that I am aware of your concerns and that I intend to have a conversation with Director Ayo in order to ensure that he is also aware. Any disruption to your work must be taken seriously, especially at this critical time.

However, I must also ask for a measure of patience and cooperation from all of you. It is simply impossible to gather the information necessary to carry out this investigation without an element of distraction and inconvenience.

Remember that your cooperation is vital to bringing this investigation to a swift and successful conclusion. I'm sure that's something we all want.

- Father

Synth vs.Android Edit

Transcript

As production of our gen-3 synths continues apace, I would like to take this opportunity to formalize our categorization.

The term android has been used interchangeably with synth for as long as the Institute has existed. And though some of our older residents may actually prefer android (Dr. Zimmer being a prime example), the term synth has always been more widely used.

Today, our third generation creations are truly synthetic beings, so the designation synth seems more appropriate than ever.

From here on in, I strongly prefer all official Institute records and correspondences use the term synth or synths. Let us remember our past, and appreciate the legacy of the android. But let us live for the future, and recognize the power of the synth.

Our New Visitor Edit

Transcript

As you know, Father has granted full access to our new visitor from the surface. That includes the entirety of the SRB. While we must accommodate Father's wishes in this matter, we must also remain diligent.

Refrain from discussing any sensitive information, especially the ongoing investigation involving the gen 3 synths. In an ideal world, the Railroad will have had no influence on our new guest. We do not live in an ideal world.

- Director Ayo

Missing Synth Investigation Edit

Transcript

Due to recent developments in our ongoing investigation into the missing synths, I am adjusting our policy regarding discussion of this subject with personnel outside of SRB.

In brief, details of the investigation are now classified and cannot be shared with anyone other than SRB personnel, and even then, such conversations can take place only here in the SRB facilities.

Those who are found to be in violation of this policy will face the strictest discipline.

- Director Ayo

Infiltrator Unit: McDonough Edit

Transcript

I'm starting to wonder if M7-62 (the Infiltrator unit "McDonough") hasn't begun to outlive its usefulness. Assuming the identity of Diamond City's mayor has provided us with invaluable intelligence over the years, but suspicions have only continued to mount. This latest incident - the publication of that newspaper article specifically calling McDonough's humanity into question - might just be the tipping point.

I've spoken with Ayo, and we both agree - if the situation does become untenable, reclamation seems unfeasible. M7-62 was specifically engineered to mimic the actual human McDonough. As such, the unit's synthetic biology is that of someone overweight and grossly out of shape. A mem wipe would kill any psychological weaknesses attributed to self-perceived old age, but that body? Lost cause.

The real irony here is that M7-62, in one of its dispatches back to the Institute, requested a future posting in the Coursers, citing loyalty and years of surface. And that request alone was evidence of enough self-awareness and independence to completely eliminate him from contention. Never mind the fact that he wouldn't even fit into the uniform.

Determination: When and if M7-62's identity is eventually compromised, the unit is effectively decommissioned in-field. No reclamation. No Institute assistance. Given its relative age and physical condition (not to mention the danger inherent in an Infiltrator unit's discovery), further lifespan estimated at two weeks maximum.

Access to SRB Edit

Transcript

It has come to my attention that certain colleagues who are dissatisfied with our policies and procedures have, on more than one occasion, tried to circumvent our established process for registering their complaints with Father, and have tried to gain access to our secure facilities in order to complain in more direct manner.

I'm sure I need not remind you that the SRB is off-limits to all personnel not assigned to this division. Do not allow yourself to be browbeaten, cajoled, intimidated or otherwise manipulated into allowing anyone who lacks the appropriate clearance to enter the SRB.

Failure to uphold this mandate will result is severe discipline.

- Director Ayo

Power Conservation Edit

Transcript

As you're all aware, Father has asked that we monitor our power usage carefully, and try to be as efficient as possible. As a point of personal emphasis, we should strive to be efficient in everything we do, but our division has needs that are unique among the various branches of the Institute. The fact is, sometimes our operations require resources that we cannot readily disclose due to the sensitive nature of what we do.

I place my trust in your judgment. If you require additional power, or any other resources, to carry out your work, then take what you need. Consult me if you have any concerns or questions, but know that the responsibility of meeting your project deadlines falls upon your shoulders, and I won't accept limited power availability as an excuse for failing to meet those deadlines.

In short, do what you need to do, and if anyone objects to the way in which we carry out our work, I will deal with those objections myself.
