1: Petab, the alarm's going off. What's wrong?
2: I don't know! ...The dissociation ocean is boiling. The floating lake is ready. Get back at once!!
1: Grr... Hurry it up, you too! This isn't just the floating lake! I don't know what's going on... But it looks like we've got a big one this time!
1: Huh? What?
2: Hey, what is this? What's going on... What's an escape ship doing here?
all sfx: Beep
2: Wait! Melemorica! Get back to the upstream valve control room!
3: What? We don't have time for that!!
4: An escape ship got stuck in the floating lake! It's been sending out an unbelievable amount of SOS signals! And on top of that, it sent out a direct request for help to the Skylid Tower on the inverse stratum!!
6: Is this some kind of a bad joke?!
7: I'm serious! I can't even believe it myself!
1: An escape ship... couldn't have made it through the hole.
2: It's unbelievable.
3: But it isn't impossible.
4: I've confirmed the nearest valve! Prepare to open Fork-125! Let's give that ship a proper welcome to Gozo City!!
１： That idiot! This is why I didn't want to let him steer!
1: Point stabilized! Open the last valve!
SFX: CREAK CREAK
2: What is it, Melemorica?
3: Uhh... I don't know how to say this, but... Is this really an escape ship? Doesn't it look too small?
1: I have no idea how they do things on their end. Haven't our guests come out yet?
2: Our instructions to open up keep getting bounced off. We can't even tell them that this is a safe zone...
3: Is someone inside preventing the communication? Or is the ship itself doing it?
4: Um, well, I don't think that could be possible...
5: Petab! I finished washing it.
6: OK! You can take off your armor now.
1: Aaahh, my shoulders feel so stiff!
2: Thanks to what you guys gathered, we finally managed to collect all we need. Now we can finally leave this town.
3: I guess the first group's already reached the second city...
1: Now we can finally catch up to them...
2: Can't believe we got left behind. Guess we ended up with the short end of the stick in terms of jobs...
1: Well, can you really blame them? Can't leave all the unreliable people in the rear...
2: They left one.
3: What? Hey, that's not far! I've been doing my best ever since we arrived here...
4: This is your best? You still can't read the sprinkler mesh right.
5: She's got a point.
1: Ischiole!! What did you do this time?!
2: I-I didn't do anything!
3: Hey, that's...
1: ...Seriously?! Are those really Vismans?!
1: Oh, I know what these are. "Initial memories."
2: Authenticating the tower... the beginning of existence and thoughts... When I still had only one mind.
1: Father... don't leave me...
3: The severance index line is.. in the machine...
1: Don't move!
1: Woahh, what?! Waaahh!!
2: Category 2 creatures?! What are you doing here?!
3: What are you doing here?!
4: That's our line, cueball!!
1: Wait... Why? We both speak the same language?! But they're creatures... They shouldn't speak our language...
2: What are you blabbering on for?!
3: What? Blab...
4: Why are half-machine life forms... out in the open?
1: And how are they speaking?!
2: Is some kind of audio translator activated? But how could it be? Don't tell me Tower 3 can reach this far?
3: What did that thing really do to us?!
4: Who are you two?! Who's that child! What is a life form doing in a Visma ship?!
5: You sent an SOS signal... to the Visma Central Skylid Tower, didn't you?
1: What happened?! What's going on?!
2: Why did infranuclear beings cross the ocean?!
3: Wait! Calm down! We didn't come here to cause you any kind of harm!
1: Please! We're as confused as you!
2: We were sent here by force! By Visma Tower 3!
3: W-we're unarmed civilians!
5: are your names?
1: Tou Om Xma.
2: Sim Lim Aexna.
3: A farmer and a doctor, huh? They've been limited. What they said about being unarmed is true, Melemorica.
4: Lower your Dagun...
2: know the infranuclear civilian registration code?
3: Yeah... years of experience is pretty much all I've got going for me.
4: I was born right at the end of the coexistence period. I know just about everything that was contained in the textbooks back then.
1: But I've never heard of infranuclears being able to move
2: outside of the cognitive nucleus of Visma...
3: Just who are you two?!
1: Were you sent here because of what's happening right now?
2: Or... don't you know about it yet?
3: I know this answer may not satisfy you, but... This is all I can say.
1: We don't know. We came here without knowing anything!
2: We don't even know where we are right now.
3: But there has been no thought restriction attached to us.
4: Not only that, there hasn't been an invasion alarm.
1: This may sound like a foolish question, but...
2: Is this... really Visma?
3: I'd be thankful...
4: if you could accept our confusion.
1: So, if we were to believe everything you just said, then...
2: You were sent to the branch tower general without any knowledge, or even a purpose?
3: Without authorization form the Central Skylid? Now that I think about it, life forms and infranuclears are in contact here... But the branch tower isn't waiting for instructions from central.
4: Sim, did I say too much?
5: Just keep quiet.
1: I don't know if you could call this a purpose or not...
2: But Visma Tower 3 gave us a mission - to transport this child to the Central Skylid on the inverse stratum.
3: We received no other information than that. No route, no period of time, no reason. We also didn't have a choice in the matter.
4: Even for an infranuclear, that's a violation of thought rights.
5: I'm thankful that there are Category II civilians who can understand that.
1: Still, I'm not dumb enough...
2: to just take everything you say at face value.
1: Ahh! Hey!!
2: I put a conversion obstruction on you.
3: Don't worry, it's something light enough that an infranuclear could easily remove it within seconds. But I can't have you just walking around here without any insurance, you know?
4: Don't take it personally, guests.
1: If that's what it takes to put you at ease, then so be it.
3: At least let me complain a little! Geez.
4: Opening the fluctuation hatch. Bring our guests up top!
1: Umm... Are you sure this is OK?
2: What did I just tell you? I invested in a little insurance. It should give us just enough time to draw our Daguns.
1: You first.
2: Can't you even be considerate enough to lend a lady your jacket?!
3: Hand it over!
4: Why does she engage in so much threatening behavior?
5: Why are you letting it affect you so much?
2: That's our Zebuin, Linked Branch Tower 3. Or at least, it used to be ours.
1: Tou Om, Sim Lim.
2: Just a little bit ago... that tower... ceased functioning.
3: Hey, hold on. Ceased functioning?! Didn't Visma send out any support?! How could that even happen unless all of Visma started to cease functioning?!
4: A half-machine transformation...
5: explosion virus has broken out.
1: Explosion virus...?
2: That's right. ANOTHER half-machine transformation virus, Sim Lim Aexna. The timing is so weird that not only did we not anticipate it, we've got absolutely no way to stop it, even now.
3: But then you three appeared... Now do you get it? Of course we'd be suspicious of infranuclears like you! That deadly virus began in Visma!
4: Yeah. This doesn't make sense. Why would infranuclears be sent up from Visma at a time like this?
1: Search for Amano Makoto... Towa...
