CODENAME [VIRUS], ONLINE. MY INFILTRATION INTO SOCIETY OF FOREIGN SPECIES, DESIGNATED [MACHINA], IS COMPLETE. THE FALSE BACKGROUND WAS ADEQUATE: NONE SUSPECT ANYTHING OF MY ORIGINS.

MASTER, THESE CREATURES ARE.... STRANGE. PERHAPS IT IS MERELY BECAUSE I AM STILL LEARNING, BUT I CANNOT FULLY UNDERSTAND WHY THEY FUNCTION AS THEY DO, AND THIS MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO SUCCESSFULLY CONTINUE MY CHARADE. THESE BEINGS, WHILE SIMILAR TO US – AS WOULD BE SUSPECTED, CONSIDERING OUR INTERTWINED ORIGINS – DO NOT PROCEED IN THEIR COURSE OF ACTIONS UNDER THE TOTAL DOMINION OF LOGIC: THEY USE SOMETHING YOU SPOKE OF ONCE, THINGS CALLED [EMOTIONS]. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND, YET I WILL CONTINUE TO EMULATE UNTIL I LEARN.

THE VARIATIONS AMONG THIS SPECIES ARE QUITE SUBSTANTIAL: UNLIKE OURSELVES, EACH OF THESE [MACHINA] ARE UNIQUE, WITH VARYING CAPABILITIES, SOME MORE SUITED FOR COMBAT THAN OTHERS. STILL, THEY DO FALL INTO LARGE CATEGORIES BASED UPON ABILITIES AND PREFERENCES, THINGS THEY CALL [LINEAGES]. I PRETEND TO UNDERSTAND, BUT EVEN THE NOTABLE DATA STORES YOU PROVIDED ME WITH COULD NOT PREPARE ME TO FAKE AN UNDERSTANDING OF AN ENTIRE SPECIES: THE INTELLIGENCE WAS TOO SPARSE, GUESSWORK IN LARGE QUANTITIES, WITH LARGE OMISSIONS; I SUGGEST THE RECONNAISSANCE SQUADRON BE DESPOSED OF IMMEDIATELY.

I AM BOTHERED BY HAVING TO REMAIN IN MY [COVERT OPERATIONS MODE] CONSTANTLY: IT IS MOST PROHIBITIVE TO MY MISSION, BEING REQUIRED TO LOWER MYSELF TO THE RESTRAINTS OF THIS RACE. COULD I NOT HAVE BEEN MADE TO APPEAR AS AN INDIVIDUAL THAT HAD MASTERED HIGHER TECHNOLOGY? AGAIN, I STATE THAT THE DIFFERENCES WITHIN THIS SPECIES ARE MOST VARIED, AND I DOUBT THAT I WOULD HAVE BEEN GIVEN AWAY SO EASILY.

ALL MY COLLECTED DATA HAS BEEN TRANSFERRED TO SEVERAL ATTACHED FILES. I MUST ASK, MASTER, HAVE I PERMISSION TO TAKE ONE OF THESE CREATURES AS A SPECIMEN FOR EXAMINATION? THEY ARE MOST CURIOUS, WHAT WITH THEIR PRIMITIVE ORGANIC-CYBERNETIC HYBRID FRAMES, SOMETHING THEY DESIGNATE AS [CYBORG]: SUCH A STUDY WOULD BE MUCH MORE INFORMATIVE THAN VISUAL OBSERVATION; I WOULD PERFORM A STANDARD OPERATION ELECTRO-PULSE FOR ANALYSIS OF THE CORE NERVOUS SYSTEM, BUT I'VE YET TO FULLY DISCERN EXACTLY WHERE THAT IS ON THESE BEINGS.

I MADE QUITE A REMARKABLE DISCOVERY RECENTLY, WHEN I TOOK A TRIP TO THE CAPITAL OF THIS WORLD: HERE, I FOUND A THING THESE [MACHINA] CALL [SCHOOL]. WHEN BORN, [MACHINA] ARE APPARENTLY FULLY [ORGANIC]: THEY ARE NOT CREATED VIA A COMBINATION OF CLONING AND CONSTRUCTION AS WE ASSUMED, BUT INSTEAD ARE MADE THROUGH THE PAINFUL PROCESS OF TAKING ONES BODY APART TO THE POINT WHERE ONLY A FEW ORGANS ARE LEFT, AND THEN THESE ORGANS ARE PLACED WITH THEIR LARGE [FRAMES]. THIS [SCHOOL] IS WHERE THE ORGANIC YOUNG ARE TAKEN AFTER BIRTH TO BE TRAINED 60 PERCENT OF EACH STELLAR CYCLE FOR APPROXIMATELY FIFTEEN STELLAR CYCLES BEFORE UNDERGOING THE BEFORE MENTIONED TRANSFORMATION.

AS INTERESTING AS THIS WAS, HOWEVER, A MORE IMPORTANT DISCOVERY WAS FOUND NOT FAR FROM THE SCHOOL, AT THE FACILITY WHERE [MACHINA] ARE [REFORMATTED] INTO ADULTS: HERE, I DISCOVERED A MORGUE, WHERE THE BODIES OF THOSE THAT COULD NOT SURVIVE THE PROCESS WERE PLACED UNTIL THEY COULD BE DISPOSED OF IN THESE CREATURES STRANGE, REVERENTIAL FASHION – UNLIKE WE [NECROS], THEY DISPOSE OF THEIR DECEASED BY EMTOMBING THE [FRAMES] WITHIN LARGE MAUSOLEUMS. PUTTING THE ODDITIES OF THESE [ORGANICS] ASIDE, IT WAS IN THIS MORGUE THAT I MANAGED TO PROCURE A YOUNG [MACHINA'S] [FRAME], AND AFTER MANAGING TO SNEAK IT OUT, I TOOK IT TO WELL HIDDEN BASE OF OPERATIONS I HAVE MADE AND GAVE THE [FRAME] A FULL EXAMINATION.

THIS EXAMINATION REVEALED SEVERAL INTERESTING FACTS, WHICH ARE LISTED IN EXTENSION DETAIL IN THE ATTACHED FILES: I WILL, HOWEVER, DISCUSS TWO FACTS UP FRONT. UPON EXAMINING THIS FRAME, I HAVE COME TO HAVE A RATHER COMPLETE KNOWLEDGE OF THE INNER WORKINGS, AND MUST SAY THAT, IN A VERY PRIMITIVE FASHION, THEIR TECHNOLOGY IS VERY MUCH OUR OWN: I CANNOT IMAGINE WHAT COULD HAVE CAUSED SUCH REGRESSION, NOR CAN I GATHER ANY IDEA FROM THE [MACHINA] THEMSELVES, WHO CARE NOT TO TALK ABOUT THE DAYS BEFORE THEY CREATED THEIR [FRAMES] AND HAD THEIR NIGH-WORSHIPED [“SCIENCE”]. FROM WHAT I CAN GATHER, HOWEVER, IT APPEARS THERE WAS SOME FORM OF OPPRESSIVE GOVERNMENT, CALLED [“THE CHURCH”], THAT COMPLETELY FORBADE TECHNOLOGY: IT RULED UNTIL BEING OVERTHROWN FOUR HUNDRED STELLAR CYCLES AGO, AND ALL [THE CHURCH'S] RECORDS WERE COMPLETELY DESTROYED IN THE OVERTHROW.

MY SECOND MAJOR OBSERVATION WAS THE FASHION IN WHICH THEIR [FRAMES] ARE CONTROLLED: THEY USE A FORM OF REMARKABLY ADVANCED WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM, WHICH IS CAPABLE OF CONTROLLING THE [FRAME] BY INTERPRETING THE BRAIN WAVES OF THE CONTROLLER; THIS IS A TWO-EDGED SWORD, HOWEVER, AS IT IS QUITE EASY TO REVERSE THIS PROCESS AND TAKE OVER THE USER'S CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM USING NANO-BOTS, TO THE POINT THAT ONE COULD EVEN CREATE PUPPETS OUT OF THEIR DEAD BODIES. BEYOND THIS, I BELIEVE THAT IF WE COULD TRACE OUR OWN TRANSMISSION TECHNOLOGY BACK TO ITS' MOST FUNDAMENTAL FREQUENCY, WE WOULD FIND A TRANSMITTABLE OVERRIDE SWITCH TO EVERY, SINGLE [MACHINA'S] [FRAME]: IF WE COULD ACHIEVE THIS, I BELIEVE WE COULD TAKE OVER THE ENTIRE RACE IN ONE FELL SWOOP

IN RESPONSE TO YOUR STATEMENT, MASTER, I AM NOT BECOMING FOND OF THESE [MACHINA]: TO BECOME FOND OF THESE REPUGNANT [ORGANICS] IS SOMETHING I COULD NEVER DO. AS FOR WHETHER OR NOT I AM BECOMING INDEPENDENT, I MUST ASK, AM I? YOU DESIGNED ME WITH THE CAPABILITIES TO LEARN AND GROW: I AM STILL FULFILLING MY PURPOSE, AND AM STILL LOYAL TO YOU; FORGIVE ME IF MY USE OF MY [MACHINA] NAME OFFENDS YOU. IT HAS BECOME SUCH A HABIT TO USE IT, I DID NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT WHAT I WAS SAYING; AS MUCH AS I HAVE COME TO ACCEPT THIS FALSE SIDE OF MY BEING, I WILL REMEMBER TO REFRAME FROM SAYING SUCH THINGS AS MY FALSE NAME AROUND YOU.

THESE [MACHINA] ARE MOST INGENUITIVE, I MUST ADMIT: PRIMTIVE, BUT INGENUITIVE. EACH ONE DESIGNS AND BUILDS HIS OWN [FRAME], HIS OWN WEAPONS, VEHICLES, EQUIPMENT, EVERYTHING: PERHAPS THEIR MOST INGENIOUS CREATION, SAVE THEIR BODIES, ARE THEIR [MINI-COM DRONES]: I MUST ADMIT THAT THESE DRONES ARE QUITE USEFUL, AS THEY ARE CREATED WITH THEIR OWN SPECIFIC PURPOSES, AND EACH IS CONTROLLED SPECIFICALLY BY ITS' CREATOR USING THE SAME FORM OF WIRELESS COMMUNICATION AS CONTROLS THEIR [FRAMES]. I COULD NOT DENY THEIR USEFULNESS, SO I HAVE CREATED EIGHT OF MY OWN: THEY NOW ASSIST ME IN GATHERING INTELLIGENCE, AND HAVE PROVED VERY USEFUL SO FAR.

I HAVE BEEN HEARING OF NUMEROUS REPORTS OF STRANGE ATTACKS ON THE BORDER REGIONS OF THE [FEDERATION]: APPARENTLY SOME FORM OF [PARASITIC ORGANISM] HAS ARISEN THERE, AND HAS ATTACKED SEVERAL COLONIES, TAKING OVER THE MAJORITY OF THEIR POPULATIONS. THE REPORTS ALSO DESCRIBE SOME FORM OF [MONSTROUS BEING] FOLLOWING THESE PARASITES, HUNTING THEM PRACTICALLY: WHILE THE [PARASITES] ARE ONE THING, THIS [BEING] IS SLIGHTLY MORE THAN I WILL BELIEVE. NEVERTHELESS, I SUGGEST THAT YOU SEND A RECONNAISANCE FORCE TO INVESTIGATE, IN CASE THERE IS ANY TRUTH TO THESE REPORTS: SUCH A BEING MIGHT BE A VALUABLE TOOL, COULD WE CAPTURE IT.

FORGIVE ME FOR THE LATE REPORT, BUT THIS NEW TASK I AM ASSIGNED IS MONUMENTAL AND THE TIME AWAY FROM IT SMALL. THIS [ALLIANCE] APPEARS TO CONTAIN MANY NEW SPECIES HITHERTO UNKNOWN TO US: THEY APPEAR TO BE LED, MOSTLY, BY AN ORGANIC RACE DUBBED [HUMANS]; MY SCANS INDICATE THEIR GENETIC STRUCTURE IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE [ANCIENT'S PUZZLE]. THESE CREATURES ARE MOST... PECULIAR, HOWEVER: MORE SO THAN EVEN THE [MACHINA], THESE [HUMANS] ARE RULED BY [EMOTIONS], WHICH ARE STILL JUST BEYOND MY UNDERSTANDING, DESPITE A BETTER KNOWLEDGE NOW THAN BEFORE. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY THEY WERE CHOSEN TO LEAD THIS [ALLIANCE]; I WOULD BE MORE INCLINED TO SUGGEST ONE OF THE OTHER THREE RACES I HAVE ENCOUNTERED, SUCH AS THOSE CALLED [SANGHEILI] or [PLAINSFIERIANS], THE GENETIC STRUCTURE OF THE FORMER, I MIGHT ADD, IS ALSO COMPATIBLE AS WELL. I MUST CONTINUE TO INVESTIGATE THESE RACES; THESE SPECIES I HAVE ENCOUNTERED REQUIRE MORE STUDY, PARTICULARLY THESE PECULIAR [PLAINSFIERIANS], AND I UNDERSTAND I HAVE YET TO SEE EXAMPLES OF AT LEAST HALF A DOZEN OTHER RACES. I WILL REPORT BACK WITH MORE INFORMATION WHEN I AM ABLE; PLEASE EXAMINE THE MEAGER DATA IN THE ATTACHED FILES UNTIL THEN.

THINGS MOVE INTO PLACE MY LORD. I HAVE BEGUN THE REBELLIONS AND THE DISSONANCES: THEY WILL SOON BE SO PREOCCUPIED FIGHTING ONE ANOTHER THAT THEY WILL NEVER EVEN NOTICE OUR MOVEMENTS TOWARDS THEIR BORDERS, MUCH LESS DO ANYTHING TO PREPARE. THEY ARE RIPE FOR THE TAKING: THEY HAVE NO FOREKNOWLEDGE AND NO SECURE DEFENSES.

MY ONE TOUCH OF CONCERN WITH THE SAFETY OF THE INVASION IS A COLLECTIVE GROUP OF ENTITIES THAT MAY BE CAPABLE OF HELPING THE [ALLIANCE] FEND OFF THE SWARM, IF ONLY AS A DELAY: THIS GROUP IS KNOWN AS [THE GUARDIANS], AND IT IS COMPOSED OF NUMEROUS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCES.... A.I.'S MADE BY [OUR FOREBEARS].

NORMALLY, I WOULD NOT FEAR THEIR PRESENCE, BUT RECENT DEVELOPMENTS HAVE MADE ME TO BELIEVE THAT ONE AMONG THESE A.I.'S KNOWS THAT WE EXIST, OR AT LEAST SUSPECTS. IN PARTICULAR, HE HAS TAKEN AN INTENT INTEREST IN [THE FAILURE]. I KNOW NOT WHAT HE MIGHT LEARN FROM THE FAILED REVENANT, BUT I WILL TRY WITH ALL MY POWER TO ELIMINATE HIM.

I AWAIT MY COMING RETURN TO YOUR PRESENCE WITH ANTICIPATION, MASTER: THERE IS MUCH I WISH TO DISCUSS WITH YOU IN PERSON, AND MANY THINGS THAT I WOULD LIKE TO SUGGEST FOR YOU TO CONSIDER. THERE ARE MANY AMONG THESE [MACHINA] WHO WOULD MAKE WORTHY WARRIORS, IF WE COULD BUT CONVINCE THEM TO JOIN US: HOWEVER, I CANNOT DO SO UNTIL OUR GUISE IS DROPPED, SO SUCH ACTIONS WILL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL YOU GIVE THE ORDER.
