X-8 Test Subject Information[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

In this test, YOU will take on the role of one of those evil Commies, infiltrating an institution of HONEST AMERICAN LEARNING. (Don't worry, Citizen, it's just for pretend!) Your objective is to steal documents that a REAL dirty Commie traitor (which you're not) could use to BRAINWASH OUR CHILDREN (which you wouldn't do). This test will help us to protect our children's fragile minds from the agents of INTERNATIONAL COMMUNISM! Agents like YOU!

Just kidding! We know you're a loyal American! AREN'T YOU?

X-8 Institutional Test Internal Memo[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Subjects will be informed that we are gauging the effectiveness of Communist infiltration of American schools. They won't know about the Cyberdogs until they actually begin the testing process.

1) TEST A engages Cyberdog protection protocols alongside standard automated turret systems.
2) TEST B adds Protectrons to the previous test. TEST B also includes some basic tests for the Field Disrupter Capacitance Module.

X-8 Residential Test Internal Memo[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Until further notice, please do not enter the Residential Cyberdog Test area, or conduct any experiments using it. The Cyberdogs are still being programmed, and any disturbance could have dramatic influence on their progress. Restricting access in this fashion should also help to avoid any repeats of Incident: PLAYTIME, settlements for which are coming directly out of our budget.

EM Pulse Wave Module on Loan[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

The X-13 Facility has loaned us their EM Pulse Wave Module prototype for the Sonic Emitter for use in our Data Retrieval Test simulations. The Module allows the Sonic Emitter to disable certain force fields. DO NOT allow test subjects to leave the X-8 facility with this Module! Even though it won't work outside Big MT, it's a security nightmare. Thank you all for your attention in this matter.

Project: Burke and Project: Hare[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Yes, Project: Burke involves what some less science-minded individuals might call "grave robbing." Yes, we're forced into this due to budget cuts. No, none of senior staff uses the bodies for anything else. Finally, in regards to the rumor that Project: Hare engages in liquidation operations against non-military targets to procure research subjects, I will not dignify them with a response. Any other questions?

Important Reminder to Myself[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

While programming the new residential Cyberdog model to retrieve objects thrown by human beings for purpose of enjoyment, I accidentally used an audio sample recording of its bark as the object to be fetched. The Cyberdog has now become attached to the sample, and displayed signs of aggressive tendencies when I attempted to recover it. I have left it in the Residential Reconstruction Area until it is needed. I believe the Cyberdog has buried it.

X-12 Request for Assistance[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

We've had a small issue with one of our Y-17 Trauma Harnesses. Sadly, a member of the X-12 research team choked on a buffalo gourd seed and died while working late last night. For some reason his Y-17 Trauma Harness will not shutdown. In fact, it has begun malfunctioning and causing the late Mr. Harris to attack other employees. Do you have any prototypes you could lend us as a means to stop it?

-Barb

Assistance Granted[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

I'm sending over the K9000 Cyberdog Gun. It should do the trick. Let me know if you have any operational questions.

K9000 Cyberdog Gun Sealed in X-12[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

We've had another unfortunate occurrence. While attempting to destroy Mr. Harris's Trauma Harness, the disaster control team member carrying the gun slipped and fell, dropping the weapon. Unarmed, the team had to flee and seal off the lab. Unfortunately, your K9000 Cyberdog Gun Prototype was sealed inside X-12.

Shipping Department: Unusual Shipment[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Dr. Richardson,

We've just received the latest shipment of dogs for the Cyberdog experiment process, but... well, frankly, I think our supplier screwed us. The animals must be basically feral - every time we get close to the shipping kennels they let out with the most Godawful hissing and... well, rattling is the only way I can describe it. Please advise - should we open the kennels or just send them back?

Shipping Department: Please Advise[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

So, at Dr. Richardson's request, we opened one of those kennels from our latest shipment. The "dog" inside (and I use that term very loosely) appeared to be suffering from a truly horrendous case of mange, and upon being released it immediately attacked, killed, and attempted to swallow whole Specialist Akers. Luckily, the situation has, for now at least, contained itself, as SPC Akers was a very large man and the creature has choked to death.

Does anyone know anything about this shipment? Please Advise.

Shipping Department in Lockdown[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

In light of the large number of fatalities due to the latest shipment of experimental test subjects, the shipping department is going into lockdown. I give you my personal assurance that as soon as this plague of monsters has been dealt with, I will work overtime to get your deliveries to you in a timely and efficient manner. As I am currently the only surviving member of the shipping department, however, there may still be some delays. Until then, Dr. Calis in X-13 has the passcard for the area.

Skippy, Sole Survivor

Regarding Shipping Department Lockdown[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

In our last supervisor meeting, we discussed the possible benefits of the small shipping accident. We are considering studying the unexpected specimen's behavior by releasing them into our test area before removing them from the X-8 facility. The shipping department will remain in lockdown until a decision has been reached.

Bio-Mechanical Splicing Rules[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

1) Due to recent government-mandated cutbacks to our funding, only THREE experiments may be performed per day.
2) We do not have infinite kennel space here in X-8! Only ONE Cyberdog beyond those needed for the testing process may be created.
3) Clear any and all debris from the platform before conducting any splicing experiments.
4) Experiments are NOT allowed outside the X-8 Facility.
5) Finally, Security must be disabled before experiments can be run.
