NARRATOR: Oisri Dig Base, Admin Wing...
TAGII: *Over P.A. system* Attention all personnel. This is Tagii, A.I. of the Touch-And-Go. We are engaging in an unscheduled drill.
Please power down all communications terminals, handbrains, TVs, and any other devices with a hypernode, and leave them alone for two minutes.
We are testing readiness against infowar assaults. Your cooperation is appreciated.
GUS: "Cooperation" my meaty 'mogrified sit-muscle... Tagon, why wasn't I notified about this?
TAGON: I'm wondering the same thing.
GUS: Next question: since when does your ship have access to our emergency public address system?
TAGON: I'm going to guess "Ever since Commander Andreyasn decided we need an infowar drill."
GUS: So he hacked in?
TAGON: Hacking friendlies who may be compromised in an attack is probably part of the exercise.
GUS: Fine. Next question: how do I know that this is your people running a drill, and not an enemy assault aimed at severing our communications for a couple of minutes?
TAGII: Having you two overclock your wetware on that question is half the point of the drill.
TAGON: Does this mean we pass?
GUS: Does this mean you hacked my display node?
