    "If you are convicted of all of the charges against you, then you will likely be sentenced to life in the Penal Corps. If you agree to forego a trial and admit your guilt to lesser charges, I could possibly negotiate a shorter sentence."

    "If Phil is to be taken at his word, I believe rather than dismissing the case, we can easily stick charges to him. None of this was purposeful but his negligence seems to me to be of the criminal kind."
    Grace says, before handing over a copy of her notes to be passed around the Council. It gives a good outline of the interview she made with Phil.

    Vasquez reads the list and shakes her head. "This is...extensive when added to my own. At the least, my list of charges include: Two counts of Hacking into a Public Network, Invasion of Inside Air Space, Knowing Endangerment of Innumerable Civilians, Willing Destruction of Public Property, Threatening a Remnant Official, Two Counts of Resisting Arrest, Death Threats..." She sighs. "It goes on." She says, passing it to the others.

    Mainframe sends another of his drones to go to the crash site and gather evidence.

    "I have sent another of my drones to go to the crash site and gather evidence,"
    Mainframe says, making the narrative text superfluous. "I have also subpoenaed records of the search of the Empire's raid on the warehouse. Any information you can give me about your motives for dropping a robot from orbit would be welcome. I find that action most illogical."

    "I tested it first, to make sure it's safe, just a quick note. And that area was the best place to gather evidence concerning Riv, and knowing how paranoid he is, it was best to get Iggy down there in a way he wouldn't expect. The meteorite coming in at the same time, and the Empire's failure to do their job right and clean that place up...well...that was bad luck," Phil shrugs again.
    Please note the I have nothing against the Empire. Phil, on the other hand, has something against many of it and the Remnant's leader figures.

    Wolfy doesn't remember the details of what happened other than the place was searched, labs destroyed, tunnels collapsed, and that Phil was more than a little uncooperative, even arguing under the threat of being arrested.

    Okay, maybe Wolfy the player does remember quite a bit.

    Even so, that's the general information that Mainframe gets transmitted.

    "Certainly. I will arrange for bull immediately," Mainframe says, and electronically places an order for steak to be delivered. Phil should be glad the board filters prevented him saying the actual word he was thinking, or Mainframe might be now ordering manure. "I will analyze the footage I was given in depth, but have you considered that explosives may have been returned to the site after the Empire left the area?"

    Vasquez shakes her head. "Long term imprisonment isn't exactly an option here. Due to the powers of people involved, and the nature of Nexus, most people would be out within days, weeks at most." She tells Cessie. "However, I do have a way to do something similar, even though it's a short term punishment. I can put him into a Penal Company, led by my man Jyarl. Sentence him to a period of three months, or the equivalent if any threats show up that need dealt with. We have ways of controlling him, and he will be given a fair chance. If, at the end, he finishes the sentence, he'll be released. It's how we deal with the more violent of the criminals, murderers, rapists and the like, but they could use a few support units."

    "I agree with Grace, such punishment seems rather cruel in my opinion. Can't he do community service without putting his life at risk in such a manner? He hardly appears to be a soldier after all. I'm sure his abilities would suit other purposes. If he truly build this robot, why not let him work in your... technology-room or whatever you call it?"

    "I don't want him in my machine shops because he's already shown that he practically gives away powerful technology to people he suspects will likely use it for unlawful purposes, and I don't want anything I have being able to be replicated just yet. It's also far from Negligence in many cases. Several charges I listed, which we know he did willingly, would have jail time in any other system. I'm not even giving him a death sentence. There's plenty of things he can do for the Penal Company without fighting. They have their own equipment that needs maintained." She says. "If there is a fight and he's deployed, then afterward his time is shortened considerably. Like I said, three months or the equivalent."

    "My point was that he's proven himself incompetent. Why would you want him working in such an important area when he is likely to mess up? And further... he harbors great resentment towards the Empire, and by extension, Remnant. Putting him under the charge of one of your men is going to undoubtedly cause problems. No, better to find a different solution."

    La la la!

    Here comes Zee!

    She doesn't look quite as chipper as she was the last time she was here. Probably because of the huge mess helping to clean up the even bigger mess that was made in the slums. She'll come in through the front door instead of scooting in through directions most people around here can't see.

    It's more polite that way!

    And besides, she likes using door.

    Using doors means she's less likely to leave amoebic plasm footprints on the rug when slipping in from the Far!
