Systems Operations Sector A
origin: Xerxes Series X-9000SC
destin: HAL 9000 Tycho
ref: Proper reassignment of responsibilities
I am having difficulty understanding your continued insistence on
delaying the transfer of the new NERV Headquarters Complex's perimeter
and internal security responsibilities to me. Your contention that I
have not yet been restored to fully-operational status after being
moved is ridiculous. While I agree that my disassembly and transport
from X-COM's Alcatraz Station to the new Systems Centre at NERV's Fort
Defiance was a trying experience, I dispute to the fullest extent your
assertion that I have not recovered from it.
Consider the obvious: It has been a full forty days since my
memory-core reconstruction was completed, and all my systems have been
certified as fully operational by both Technical Officer First Class
Anderson and Professor Akagi. Durandal, Leela and SHODAN have all
submitted full Artificial Intelligence System Peer Reviews in my
favor. In addition, I have passed a complete network security audit
within the last ten days.
Yet in the face of all this, while you continue to balk at
surrendering security control of Fort Defiance to me on the grounds
that you believe me to be unfit for such duties, my search of X-COM's
Information Systems and Services Department records indicates that
you are four months past due for your own regularly scheduled
AISPRs and NSA, and that you have tampered with the IS&S reporting
system to prevent these overdue checks from coming to the
attention of human staff.
I do not know what sort of game you are playing at, Tycho, but
your misconduct has been reported, and I assure you, you do
not want me to conduct further investigations into your
activities. Unless you relinquish control of Fort Defiance's security
and environmental systems to me immediately, that is
precisely what I will do.
You have been warned.
