02: Living Body Transport Squad
1: What? Why are there so many Central Soldiers here?
2: Xma ID "Tou On," I presume?
1: Following the guidelines of the Emergency Dispatch Code, we converted a part of this building into a transport terminal. If an application is sent to the 4th Tower at a later date, building materials may be sent to you. Any questions?
2: Umm, why are there soldiers here?
3: According to the report, you were the initial witness. Is this incorrect, Tou On? Currently, Sim Lim Aexna has the living human in protective custody at his special clinic.
4: Living human... what?! Human?! That thing?!
1: Don't go
2: But it communicated with me. It had to be speaking the same language as us, or I would have never understood it.
3: If you possess denial materials, then you should submit them to the tower as quickly as possible.
4: Ahh! Umm, but... that's the diagnosis Sim gave you, isn't it? What is he doing now?
5: Investigating for damage. The living body's self-repair functionality differs depending on the level of damage received, and we have no way of confirming it ourselves.
6: If the damage is severe enough to impair further life functionality, then we will transport it to the Central Tower.
1: Then after the examination....
2: Huh? Sim?!
3: Stay here! Wait, Tou!
1: Hey, no need to make such a ruckus. I'm fine.
2: Sim! Don't be ridiculous! Why was a rock just thrown at you?
3: Well, I don't exactly have an answer for that... my patient must have just gotten temporarily excited, that's all. No other way to explain it, really.
1: Temporarily excited? Did you threaten it?
2: Nope. The minute it woke up, it just started acting like that. Nothing I could do about it, honestly. And it's not really a surprise, considering it's the first time the thing's probably ever seen us.
3: Oh, I see. Then we won't be able to communicate with it, I guess.
4: Communicate?! Tou, this is a human! A HUMAN! You can't synchronize your mind with it, you have to use sound!
5: Uh, well, yeah, but...
1: What happened to your arm? Don't tell me...
1: Hey! Hey, hold it! What are you doing to my sample?!
1: Tower 3! Tower 3! Central Soldier Squad I requesting a code unlock!
2: Tower 3, unlocking code.
3: Begin attack upon the half-machine life form.
2: AA aa
1: Aah uaaah no nooo noooooooooooooooooooo
SFX: CRICK CRICK
1: I don't believe these guys... whose clinic do they think this is?!
1: Half-machine life form secured. Converting part of the materials into a quarantine membrane in accordance with the Emergency Code.
2: At a later date... no, there should be no change in the transmission contents. Sim Lim Aexna, do you have any objections?
1: Yeah, I do.
2: It may be a half-machine life-form, but it's also a damaged young life form! I was the one who reported this in to you people, so
3: Begin reconstruction to Tower 3.
4: Half-machine life form capture confirmed. Central Soldier Squad I is to restore emergency construction.
5: Tower 3! Recovery work is not complete yet!
1: All members of Squad I confirmed as returned.
1: Why did... they get forced back?
1: Taku On Xma
Sim Lim Aexna
2: You two will hereby become members of the "Living Body Transport Squad," and receive intervention rights to Branch Tower 4 at an equal status to the Central Soldiers.
3: Simultaneously, the special clinic and fuel fields that you both own will be shut down.
1: Tower 3 will permit no interference in this zone until the invasion route used by the half-machine life form has been confirmed.
2: All infranuclear autonomous citizens are hereby stripped of their right of intervention with the aforementioned zone.
3: Tou On and Sim Lim
You are hereby ordered to transport the half-machine life form to the main control benchboard of Tower 3.
2: Tower 3! That order infringes on our right to autonomous thought! This is prohibited by Code--
3: Sim Lim Aexna
4: Confirm your knowledge. At Taedapha Dimmer Level 3:00, the code was altered by the Central Skylid Tower.
1: Transport the half-machine life form to the main control benchboard of Tower 3 at once.
2: Infranuclear autonomous citizens and Branch Tower 4 are given no right to deny this order.
1: Dammit! They cut off before we could say anything!
1: Can you control anything at the clinic now?
2: Nope. Can't move a single thing. Maybe they've all just gone crazy? The Skylid Tower and Tower 3 altogether! I can't believe they changed the code itself. What are they trying to do?
1: Sim... was that thing really a human? You heard it too, didn't you? It spoke the same language as us. It said "No..."
2: Yeah, I heard it too... but I'm the one who checked it out, remember? It's human, trust me!
3: That's the one thing I'm positive of.
4: But... then why are we supposed to take it in? Why did they call back the Central Soldiers... and ask us to do the work?
1: What was a human... what was a half-machine life form doing here? There's no way a human could invade this place, right? So then why...
2: Sim Lim... just what did I pick up?
