NARRATOR: Aboard the Touch-And-Go...
THURL: Commander, I found the problem.
The Tac core, which houses the personality modules and the priority cascade? It bisects the bus. It sits between the processor bank and the ship's systems.
KEVYN: *on screen* That's not how I remember it.
THURL: Yeah, it's not how our bus used to run, but I like this design. A runaway process can't bypass prioritization.
THURL: Anyway, when I disconnected the core the processor bank was no longer in line with the ship's systems.
When I seated Ennesby in the core tower, he only got the system side of the bus.
KEVYN: Why are we talking about this? Hook him back up to the processors!
THURL: *on screen* You misunderstood me, sir. I said I've found the problem.
THURL: What I haven't found is a solution. It's not like there's something loose down there shouting "plug me in."

TAGII: *screaming scarily* Plug me in! I dare you! PLUG ME IN!
