- "Robo-renegades? Did Dr. F lose control of these things?"
- — Roger's statement after picking up the note.
I do not mean to alarm you, but I have distressing news to report. While pursuing the source of those glyphs scrawled about the facility, I came across an unsanctioned portal.
To my horror, I witnessed two robotic interlopers venture through. I followed them at a safe distance. While they were engaged in defacing the wall with another symbol, I took advantage of the element of surprise to disable them.
I thought it only fitting that their metallic components now make up part of the walls in the new laboratory. A swift visit to the Smelting Chamber and the deed was done.
And yet, disturbingly, after disassembling the neural units of a random selection of construction robots, I found traces of sympathy for these intruders in a small but significant percentage of the population.
I am instructing my, or rather, your, security underlings to increase their Suspicion and Apprehension levels by 35%, at least until this menace is contained. Any short-circuiting this causes will surely be worth the gains in security.
Yours in vigilance,
