That'll be a lot of explaining she heard a lot.
Stormwind13 1st Jul 2014, 6:32 AM edit delete reply

Wow, yeah jamie you aren't kidding. Lots and LOTS of explaining. Still, what did Galina miss at the start of the conversation?

Centcomm 1st Jul 2014, 12:32 PM edit delete reply

And Poor cent once again gets the short end of the stick >_<

::Takes the stick AWAY from CentComm:: Nuh uh... No sticks for YOU, Evil One. Trying to kill off Galina and destroy the Luna Star! It isn't even YOURS to blow up! :-p

As she is cybornetic, wonder if her thougts can in some way be monitored?
Sheela 1st Jul 2014, 6:29 AM edit delete reply

She has actual brain matter in there.
Synthethic brainmatter, but still brainmatter. And I doubt they can make readings directly from that.

That's what makes her different from Amy.
Now, Amy on the other hand, you could probably make a hardconnection to and see every single activity as they happened, but most of it would be rubbish, as it's simply feedback from subsystems.

Still, it is a big difference.
Stormwind13 1st Jul 2014, 6:39 AM edit delete reply

Well said, Sheela. I think you have the right of it. It would be possible to detect brainwave activity, deciphering it though, something else all together different.
Centcomm 1st Jul 2014, 12:35 PM edit delete reply

Actually she has some Synthetic neural tissue but most of her "cognitive" functions are handled by ACTUAL brain tissue cloned from the original Galina Kotko and enhanced by quantum chip tech.

But still it cant be read thus why Gerangers "copy" would have killed her.

I dunno, you don't have to read what's going on inside directly as long as you can measure and interpret the important stuff going down the brain stem. Reading neural impulses to work prosthetics is something we do right now, and if you can read fMRI readings of what's going on in a person's head on top of that you've practically got mind-reading: You can track a person's attention, and hormone shifts in real time to predict most of what they'll do and a surprising amount of what they'll say (or at least how and what they're thinking) before they do it.

She's a girl. No guy can understand them.

Poor Gali. *hugs her*

I just hope they will have a good conversation with the result that they actually try talking to the Epiphytes first.
Centcomm 1st Jul 2014, 12:35 PM edit delete reply

we shall see

As always you have the plan created going into this. Then there are the plans for when things go wrong. THEN there is what the people getting it done do to get the best results. Sometimes none of them look anything like any of the others.

When going to confront a unknown alien entity, if a trifusion warhead is the best equalizer you have it's probably a good idea to have a couple in your pocket. So I wouldn't argue about bringing them. But under the circumstances I wouldn't I wouldn't be planning on trying to use them in anything but a "Oh Shit!" situation. Trying to walk away from this in one piece seems the best approach since we aren't going to be intimidating them with our superior capabilities. A big smile and a cake will get what you want faster than a threat and a scowl.

Thats kinda Galina's take on this whole thing.

While it's generally true that smiles and cakes work better than threats and scowls, it's also very dependent on the culture you're smiling (or scowling) at. Smiling and passively resisting served Ghandi against the British, but (in an alternate-history timeline) wouldn't have gotten him very far against the Waffen-SS. For a more sci-fi take on it, smile at the Federation and you win. Smile at the Klingons or the Kzinti, and they'll eat you alive (literally, in the latter case).
Stormwind13 2nd Jul 2014, 9:05 PM edit delete reply

Knowing your opponent, Mr. Black. Ghandi knew what would wear down the British. In another timeline/dimension Ghandi wouldn't have been leading the resistance, but someone else would. :-)
