RE: Retrieval Team ready[edit | edit source]

From: Roslyn Chambers

Until this whole "Honest Dan" affair is resolved, stand down. The Stockton retrieval drew too much attention. Mr. Fitzgerald is furious you extracted Subject 14 so close to Covenant. See that doesn't happen again.

Our team's all patched up and ready to grab some Synths. Still tracking subject Boyd, just give us the order.

RE: Dr. Rogers' rant[edit | edit source]

From: Roslyn Chambers
To: Tach Blythe

I do not need a degree in socio-economics to realize Covenant's trade policies are unsustainable. As soon as we can't afford the subsidies Mrs. Fitzgerald will increase her prices to attain self-sufficiency. Commercial traffic will slow but more than traders visit Covenant now.

One of Doctor Rogers' points concern me. Covenant has had a net operating loss since its inception. Its expenses are staggering - the fusion batteries alone are a princely sum. The assets seized from the captured subjects in no way makes up this massive deficit. If we were a business, I'd say we're a couple months away from bankruptcy.

RE: Grave Concerns[edit | edit source]

From: Roslyn Chambers
To: Emmanuel Rogers

Do you think these objections have not been raised before? But, by all means, propose a viable alternative. But bear this in mind:

Fact: We need a large data sample. The larger the better.
Fact: The initial test is most effective if the subjects are close to their psychological base line.
Fact: If the Institute gets a single hint of our existence, our mission will end before it has truly begun.

Covenant was designed from the ground up to attract visitors. And it is working. Our data pool is increasing at an exponential rate and the subjects take the test voluntarily and unaware. Effectively the test is hiding in plain sight.

Covenant is a mistake. I cannot dispute Dr. Ryan's case for the therapeutic value of the community - but our mission MUST come first. The wide variety of risk we expose ourselves to is outright foolish. My concerns should not have been summarily dismissed. There must be another, saner, way.

The last question[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

From: Tach Blythe
To: ResearchTeamAll

I know this sounds insane. But do we need to ask the last question? Without the limiter of multiple choices the answers will admittedly be more varied and so the psychological reaction will be different. But maybe it is a core part of the experience?

We're seeing marginal improvement of the test's accuracy. To be candid, the "improvement" is within the margin of error. Perhaps we should consider something drastic.

Red herring[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

From: Tach Blythe
To: Emmanuel Rogers

For what it's worth, I agree with you. Question 4 was always Montgomery's baby.

---

From: Emmanuel Rogers
To: ResearchTeamAll

I think Question 4 is a red herring. We do not have a monopoly on detecting synths. In the Commonwealth people trip up infiltrators all the time based off their imperfect behavior and memory.

It is indisputable that the baseball question produces abnormal results. But I think at its heart this is not a psychological trigger. Instead it's a defect in memory. So if we pin all of our hopes on Q4 then it's just one wetware update later that we're back to square one.

I know you dismiss my insistence that Q3 is the key, but if we have more sophisticated monitoring of test subjects - EKG, pupil dilation, response time - then the subliminal data would speak volumes. Synths are incapable of true feeling, so again - Question 3.

Montgomery[edit | edit source]

From: Tach Blythe
To: Emmanuel Rogers

Chambers surely has to see losing Montgomery is a mistake. I don't care if Covenant is lacking medical assistance. Our limiting factor isn't the stream of test subjects going through Covenant: it's our acquisition rate of test negatives and our research bandwidth. Montgomery is far more important here than giving scavvers check ups.

Can you please talk to Chambers about this?
