I’m close to cracking the black box but it’s been a nightmare. Kristin Jónsdóttir totally modified security protocol without informing any of the higher ups and I have nothing else to go on. When the gas ignited the whole facility blew and this one little hard drive is all that’s left to tell us what happened in there beside some chargrilled mantises and the remains of at least five unidentified specimens. Doctor Jónsdóttir was keeping a whole lot of secrets from us and it’s my job to find out just how many. If a main facility could hide so much from us we have to question the security of the entire operation. With all due respect sir, your decision to oust Bias was ill timed. We’re losing our grip, and if Babel splinters… well sir, it doesn’t bear thinking about.
