ROFLMAO!! That was a great one! I wondered who the female voice was. Now we see who she was. Shinji has a child. His Mom would be so proud!

I suddenly realized something..If Shinji is raised by the Sterlings, he could conceivably be a contemporary of Marcus and Marlene Rush, and Scott Bernard....

Could you see Scott and Shinji(or at the very least Shinji and Marcus) raising hell in military academy?

Personally, I think Leonard gets a bad rap. He is a hard-liner that, like any GOOD general, would rather see his enemy annihilated than have his own people, much less the people he's protecting, die. His competency as a general is questionable, but then again it is a VERY short list of high-level officials in Robotech that look competent.

On a lighter note:
Leonard: You know people think I'm a fool and a bastard for taking such a hard line. *hic* But at least I'm doing for all the right reasons. *hic*
Gendo: Your point.
Leonard *throws a bottle at Gendo's head just barely missing him*: You are a genocidal maniac. You know what, I think I'll have your own son kill you. Might do the boy some good, and fix some of that trauma you've been inflictin' on 'im. *hic* So, how's it feel knowing you'll be executed in four hours?
Gendo: Oh, just shut up.


Leonard: "Ah, it's good to be a cold-hearted bastard in a good cause..."
Gendo: "Well, at least I can still have a woman..."
Leonard: "Don't make me show you the hot tub pictures from my last side-trip to Aspen Base..."
Gendo: "...Gurk!..Please, shoot me now!"

We'll blame you anyway...

Remember folks, AT-fields are NOT considered adequate protection when dealing with Protoculture/Flower-of-Life Empowered Beings!

Heya everyone, my brother wanted me to post this (using his exact words) considering the chaos that's going on for this one. So here it is:

Random Bar (somewhere in the Galaxy).
Shinji:(Slightly drunk) I hate my life. Everytime I find a girl I like, something pops up that ruins it.
Unknown Female Voice: Surly it can't be that bad. I have had worse myself.
Shinji: Oh ya? Try this: The first girl I had a crush on turned out to be a half clone of my mother. The next, Asuka, has one hell of a personality disorder, and she beat me whenever she had the chance. The Bridge Bunny I also liked turned out to like Dr. Akagi. And to top it all off, recently I got hit on by a trio of computers as well as a MALE Angel... My love life sucks...
Unknown Female Voice:... That is quite bad. But the fact that you've evolved beyond them shows great... portential.
Shinji: I'm actually thankfull that the prototype EVA carried spacefold booster Malfunctioned and brought me here. A shame we fought first though...
Unknown Female Voice: As am I. You are quite an... Interesting specimen Shinji Ikari, for a human. How about we continue this in my bedchambers?
Shnji: Sure, why not? Afterall sleeping with an alien isn't going to mess up my love life anymore then it is already.

*Six months later, back on earth, there's sirens blaring all over the complex.*

Shinji: What the hell is going on! Is there an another Angel attacking?
Max: Worse... Invid.
Kim (over the P.A system): Um, this is a bit odd, but will everyone please stand down and will Shinji Ikari Sterling please report to the main space port?
Shinji: Ok...?

*A Half-hour later.*

Rick: Lisa remind me why exactly we are meeting with the Invid Regis with Shinji here??
Lisa: Because she has requisted it. Ah here she comes.
(The Regis appears followed by several enforcers.)
Regis: Ah! Good, Shinji is here.
Shinji: You're voice seems awfully familiar...
Regis: As well it should... I have someone for you to meet... Dear.
Shinji: What are yo- (Shinji is suddenly knocked down by a little green skinned girl with black hair and big blue eyes that are both one colour). Um, who are you?
Little Girl: Don't you recongnize me... Papa?
Shinji: Oh Shii... (faints).
Little Girl: Mommy are all humans like this?
Regis: No dear, only your father.
(Everyone except the Invid are looking on in surprise until Max breaks it.)
Max: Just one thing... Did he beat you in battle first??
Regis: He did indeed. However, what attracted me was he seems to be more evolved then a normal human... That and he's better in bed then both my ex-husband and Zor combined.
Mariya: Wait... If she's (points as the little girl) is Shinji's daughter then that means that... YES! I'M A GRAND-MOTHER BEFORE LISA! HA!
Lisa: Damn her... (Teeth grinds loudly).

Signed,
Rathorc Lemenger.

P.S. This is, and was, my brother's idea. NOT MINE!!!!


:lol: :lol: I loved it! :lol: :lol:

“What do you mean, it’s GONE?!”
“It’s gone....Just one moment it’s up there flinging pieces of itself at us, and then....just not there.”
“HOW DO YOU LOSE A KILOMETER-WIDE ANGEL?!”
“Don’t know yet....We’re trying every sensor including wide aperature telescopes...nothing..nil...zit...”
“I don’t get it! One moment that big flying eyeball is up there flinging parts of itself at us, and then ‘poof’, it’s gone! Could it have cloaked itself? It was jamming us before!”
“I think maybe...”
“Doctor Akagi? You have something?”
“Look at its orbital track....look where it last was....I think it inadvertantly crossed paths with the anomaly already in orbit...”
“The ‘Gate’ that Emerson’s Tristar came through?”
“Exactly....”
“Then...It’s..”
“...Entirely possible it may be now in the Southern Cross frame of reality.”
“You getting all this, Major Merryweather?”
“I’ve already got a messenger ready to go through the HomeGate, alerting them to be on the look-out.”

They would later call it the Battle of Sahaquiel.
Others just called it ‘Heaven’s Blast’.
When the giant Angel suddenly appeared in the midst of the Robotech Master fleet, it began dying almost immediately, caught in the midst of protoculture-tainted debris and surrounded by active protocuture systems. But confused and angered, it was perfectly willing and able to lash out at who it thought was responsible...and it had plenty of targets close at hand...Hyervelocity parts of its very self were flung out like a massive shotgun blast, ripping into the assembled Tirolian fleet.
For their part, the Masters’ fleet had immediately begun openning fire the moment the monstrousity had appeared in their midst, sensing a relationship of some sort between the spaceborne attacker and the micronian biomechs that had proven so vexing in denying the Masters their victory over the Earth. Reflex cannon, powered up to full, blasted into the 10th Angel, obliterating entire sections of the beast.
Had Sahaquiel been farther away when it stumbled through the Gate, the Masters might have readily dispatched the creature as handily as the Southern Cross had been killing Angels for NERV. But this fight was close-up, at virtual knife range, and was a virtual powderkeg waiting to explode.
Which it did, with a force greater than any terrestrial nuclear weapon, and rivaling that of the destruction of Dolza’s command fortress a few decades before...For a few seconds a second sun burned in the skies above Earth, and city hospitals were flooded with cases of temporary blindness...Up closer, the effects were more profound...An entire Tirolian Mothership was obliterated, two more heavily damaged...One of them began a barely controlled slide back down into Earth’s gravity well...and over half the auxiliary force fo destroyers, corvettes, and other small craft had been swept away...

Scoutships and observation posts further from the blast reported with incredulous awe of what had just happened....

Already, on Earth, military men were congratulating each other on a great victory, just as a courier came through a Gate in no-space, bearing a warning of possible dire danger.....

Meanwhile, on a rapidly descending Tirolian Mothership...
Musica: “I’ve got that sinking feeling...”
Octavia: “Me too...”
Allegra: “Not aggggaaaainnnn......”

Dana Sterling: “I hear they’re going to splash down in the Carribean...What are you looking at, Bowie?”
Bowie: “Looking to wrangle a temporary transfer to Sea Squad...Louie, can a Hovertank swim?”
Louie: “Theoretically, yes...practically, no...and it looks real funny with water wings attached..”

KNOCKKNOCK
“At least we have proper Type E equipment for this sort of thing...and I always wanted to see the American Carribean!”
“Asuka...you just disturbed the bees and they’re coming out mad!”
“You keep them off my back...I’m going to open this hive open a bit more with my...DOUBLE BLADED CHAINSAW!!!!!”
Dana: (watching from a nearby LST)”Who in their right minds gives manic-depressive fourteen-year olds three-hundred foot mecha and eighty-foot long chainsaws?!”(in a nearby Beachmaster carrier, Doctor Ritsuko Akagi starts sneezing)
Dante: “Do they make those in Hovertank size, and where can I get one?”



“Dumbkoff! You were so busy swatting bioroids, you missed the REAL prize! That was the Masters’ escape ship!”
“Well, excuse me, but if you’d quit hacking apart hull and helped out with the REAL work!”
“I didn’t ask you, Fourth Child-Second Stooge.”
“You know, if we don’t damage this thing TOO much, it might make a nice offshore resort.”

"MUsica!"
"Bowie...I'm glad to see you again, too...excuse me...*BARF*"
"Okay...that's sad...Boy Meets Girl, Boy Loses Girl, Boy Meets Girl Again..Girl Gets SeaSick all over him..."
"Drammimine please?"

(Shot of the Masters' Mothership going down in the Carribean...Karno (or his surviving brother(s)) doing a fair imitation of the rich dude going down with the Titanic....)

...The clone survivors being welcomed ashore to a steel drum band....

...Bowie nearly flipping out after seeing what a soak in the water does to already formfitting Tirolian chiffon-bodysuit material...

...the 15th getting in a fight with the 'Squids'....

...Sea Squad getting some long overdue screen-time...

...Including Captain 'Jack' Sparrow of Sea Squad...the 'Sean Phillips' of the Navy...only much more self-preservation-inclined...

"Behold! The Next Wonder of the World! -JET ALONE-!!!!"
(Triumphant Music as the giant robot is raised into view)

Southern Cross Observer: "You've gotta be kidding..."
SCO2: " That monster? Are my eyes deceiving me, or are those COOLING VANES? Is that thing FISSION powered?"
SCO3: "I don't see any armaments...Three hundred feet tall, and where are its guns? It should have big guns."
(JA Industries staffers are sweating)
JA Spokeman: "Well, you see..."
SCO1: "Can it do ANYTHING?"
JA Spokeman: "Glad you asked....just watch what it can do...You've never seen anything like it before..."

(twenty minutes later)....

(From inside a Ferret APC racing away from the demonstration grounds)

SCO1: "Okay....it just went rogue, busted out of the testing area, went godzilla on the observation stands, is now going for a major population area, and your attempt to bring it back under control just resulted in us losing contact with Captain Katsuragi.....You're right, we've NEVER seen anything like this before...Not even the GMP Golems ever went berserk like that..."
JA Spokeman: "...I can't understand...why did this happen...It's not supposed to do this..."
SCO2: "I'm calling in our own guys...they're used to tackling giant targets..."

Mountain Offense Squad Srgt: "Okaaayyy....fun mission we got planned, boys and girls...we're supposed to insert ourselves aboard a giant ambulating nuclear reactor, climb up into it, find and extract the previous redshirt who went in and got herself both fragged and irradiated, and shut the thing down without getting ourselves fragged and irradiated in the process....Gremlin and Hannibal squads are rounding up enough steel cable to trip the thing if we can't shut it down...so we BETTER figure out how to stop it if we don't want to ride that thing down.... Any questions?"

MOS Corporal: "Yeah,...can I get a transfer to someplace SAFE? Like the front lines around Monument?"

(The MOS make their second appearance...more than they do in most people's Southern Cross games!)

ROFLMAO!!! That was great!

Just one question anyone know where we can get a snowspeeder with a harpoon gun? We have a rampaging giant mecha on the loose and we need to stop it.

That is a great one GB! I'm hoping they are from the Orginal version. They were better drawn in my opinion. 2040 just lacked something to me.

Mountain Offense Squad Srgt: "Okaaayyy....fun mission we got planned, boys and girls...we're supposed to insert ourselves aboard a giant ambulating nuclear reactor, climb up into it, find and extract the previous redshirt who went in and got herself both fragged and irradiated, and shut the thing down without getting ourselves fragged and irradiated in the process....Gremlin and Hannibal squads are rounding up enough steel cable to trip the thing if we can't shut it down...so we BETTER figure out how to stop it if we don't want to ride that thing down.... Any questions?"

MOS Corporal: "Yeah,...can I get a transfer to someplace SAFE? Like the front lines around Monument?"

(The MOS make their second appearance...more than they do in most people's Southern Cross games!)


:lol: I LOVED that last line! :lol:

That is a great one GB! I'm hoping they are from the Orginal version. They were better drawn in my opinion. 2040 just lacked something to me.


From what I remember of both, they were both preaty good IMO.

I'll always prefer the original! Sorry 2040 was a pale copy of the original to me. They didn't make any effort to get the original voice actors and actresses back. I do own 2040, but as stated before prefer the original. Sorry, but it's my opinion.

Well, beisdes the GMP, SOMEBODY'S gotta hunt down the SEELE members in their remote boltholes(if the mecha strikes on their offices don't get'em).

“Contamination reaching 75%!”
“Pilot’s vitals are going off the charts!”
“Armisael cannot be allowed to take over Unit-Zero, Rei; activate self-destruct.”
“(..moan..)Yes, sir.”
“No! I have a squadron heading for her!”
“Major Cocklin, you are NOT in charge here. You are here merely as a courtesy. Rei, proceed with self-destruct. The Angel must not take control of Unit Zero or endanger the Geofront!”
“Sir, Heretic and Wolfbane flights are still five minutes away!”
“Gremlin and Bronco squads want firing coordinates for their howitzers!”
“FATHER! LAUNCH ME! I CAN GET THERE IN TIME!!!”
Behind his hands, Gendo couldn’t resist a smirk....

Ever since they’d independently confirmed that the Angels had a distinct aversion to this ‘protoculture’ that the Outsiders used as a powersource, the UN and the rest of NERV had been eager to seize upon the new alien technology as a weapon against the Angels. They’d begun growing smug in the ‘sanctuary’ afforded by the presence of the Outsiders and their equipment. The UN had placed increasing attention on acquiring the services of more Southern Cross mechanized units to run ‘area denial’ patrols around Tokyo-3 and other areas, trusting in the unseen effects of the alien powerplants to keep the Angels off...Like the townsfolk parading with garlic and wolfsbane to keep off the monsters, Gendo thought uncharitably. Why, they’d even ressurected that monstrousity Jet Alone, with talk of equipping it with onboard Protoculture generators similar to those on the Southern Cross’s ‘destroids’, as soon as the Outsiders approved the appropriation of the necessary Protoculture. Far from being the grudgingly obediant mastiff mutt that had to be satisfied with what NERV and SEELE gave them, the UN had been growing entirely too swaggering confident and active in NERV affairs for Gendo’s liking, what with their increasingly comfortable relationship with the Outsiders. It was all increasingy compromising his Scenario.

But not for long...

He’d managed to stonewall the efforts to refit the Evangelions with new onboard powerplants, especially Unit-00. That had been no mean feat; the UN and the Outsiders had been managing to get their noses far too deeply into NERV business as of late, and Gendo resented their interference in HIS organization. Still, he’d managed to use what remained of his eroding power to good advantage; soon, he’d have control of his chesspieces again. Armisael, the Sixteenth Angel, Mountain of Judgement, and Angel of the Womb, would suit his purposes perfectly.

Now, sending Rei and Unit-00 outside the ‘safe’ perimeter of the Outsider enclave, to deal with a ‘routine’ Angel sighting, without the escort of Outsider mecha that was becoming standard procedure (at least the Jet Alone had yielded SOME benefit in taking the increasingly anoying Katsuragi out of the picture; she’d been entirely too happy to be cooperating with her opposite numbers in the Southern Cross) , had been a stroke of genius. Units 01 and 02, and the hastily scrambled force of Outsider vehicles, with their protoculture powerplants, would be too late to the scene...Ayanami would HAVE to self-destruct on his orders. Within a few minutes this compromised Rei would be dead, and a new one awakened, away from the all-too-curious eyes of the Outsiders and once more firmly in his control. ...And the Outsider aura of invincibility would be given a major black eye.

Try to take over MY Scenario, will you? Gendo silently gloated as he watched the countdown between total assimilation and nuclear suicide race towards their final moments.....

“You want me to target Unit-00?!”
“Affirmative, Heretic Flight. Low-yield reflex missile, airburst. If we catch Unit-Zero in the fringe of the blast, we should be able to drive the Angel out without damaging the mech or its pilot! Do it NOW!”
“One reflex missile sunburn coming up!” With that the Logan armed its missiles as it went to the deck trying to reach firing range in time.

....Just a few inches more...
*Join me*
“..no...I won’t allow you to use me...to hurt the others...”There, the switch, just under her fingers...
*You don’t have to be alone*
“...I won’t...I’ll take you down with me...” So hard to move against the pain in her arms, but the self-destruct switch was starting to move...

“Weapons free! FIRING!”
The medium-range hypersonic AGM-112 ‘Exorcist’ missile took only 1.8 seconds, once loosed from its pylon, to reach its hypersonic dash speed. Four active points of reference gave it its heading, but its onboard sensors could already get a fix on its target. In moments it had covered the intervening ground and was already on its terminal approach.

*You have no choice but to join me. Do not resist. It will not do you any good.*
...So tired...but the switch was beginning to click..
“Terminal Self-Destruct ac--”
FLASH

"Well, Major, it seems for all your protests about my decision to self-destruct Unit Zero, you've quite proficiently gone ahead and vaporized it on your own! Your UEG WILL be hearing from the highest levels of OUR government about this...Now, Major Cocklin, you'll excuse me, but I have to work with my staff regarding the death of one of our Pilots and the loss of one of our Evangelion units...Section 2 will escort you out of the GeoFront..."

“Sir, Unit-Zero...it’s vanished...”
“It’s been destroyed? We're already aware of that! And that damned Gendo is already using it to paint us in the worst possible light!”
“No, sir, it’s gone...and there’s signs of a Fissure where it vanished.”
“So we blew Unit-Zero into another dimension?”
“Seems that way.”
“Great, any idea where it went?”
“No, sir, but we got a team still inspecting the site. We should have a better idea in an hour or so. We got an alert out back on our Earth just in case she came through outside Monument or someplace else back there like they did before. ”
"Let me know soonest if and when you come up with anything...The Exorcist airburst SHOULDN'T have destroyed Unit Zero as well, unless it was so thoroughly contaminated as to BE an Angel....and I want to know the exacts about THAT possibility as well."
"Will do, sir."

“Okay, I want a full investigation on who was the ******* who ordered out Unit-Zero without adequate backup, just like we did with every other Angel incident? We KNOW the effect reflex systems have on the aliens, so why didn’t she have at least a hovertank or a battloid squad spotting for her? And leaving the perimeter zone to engage? I know NERV has issues with us in chain of command and local control over strategy and tactics, but surely they can’t be so stupid to ignore what’s become established commonsense!? It’s almost like somebody WANTED that Pilot to get jumped!”
“I’m afraid that may have actually been the case...”
“Oh, and what does the GMP mean by that, Lieutenent...oh, it’s Captain, now...Satori?”
“Let me show you some of the internal comm-traffic we got from inside the Geofront...”
“You bugged our allies?”
“Of course, and what we’ve been learning...it’s rather disturbing...”
“Let’s see what you got.”

“What do you mean, Akagi, she didn’t come through?!”
“I said....we don’t have a Rei III...yet...”
Gendo ground his teeth in frustration. He just KNEW the Outsiders had something to do with this!

(Meanwhile, on a Mars-like planetoid circling a gas giant in the Tirol system)

”What the HE---?!”
“What? You manage to open a Gate through to our Tirol?”
“I THOUGHT I had? But the Door-Knocker just went into overdrive...I had a Gate formng, then it was about to collapse, then it flared open again!”
“The Roddenberry just reported they detected Gate-flux in their drives just now, then it stopped...Then detected another burst near T- Site, just as your second event happened.”
“Almost like something JUMPED between the ship and T-Gate.”
“Wanna get on the FTL and call NuEarth? Ask them if they’re monkeying around with anything back there...We just had what looked like a double-gating event here...”
“I’m gonna have to get a longer stick if we’re going to be openning up any more Gates around here intentionally or unintentionally.”

********************************************


“Alright people, move along...nothing to see here....let the emergency crews do their work.”
“What is it? Some sort of giant bioroid?”
“I wish the Terrans would be more careful when testing their new mecha! That thing could have killed somebody falling on those houses!”

“Case # 275, Patient name unknown. Doctor Jean Grant attending. Fourteen year old human female...signs of albinism, but phenotypical signs of possible Zentraedi/near-human hybrid genetic parentage....Severe trauma, subcutaneous abcess damage to lower abdomen, chest, neck, and right facial area...Similar damage to legs and upper arms. Skin damage equivalent to first degree burns over 70% of body, second-degree burns over 30% of body, centered around areas of previously noted subcutaneous damage...Replacement of blood, plasma, microsuturing of bleeding, immersion in burn treatment regeneration tank successful...Patient responding to treatment, but full recovery uncertain. Muscular damage portends loss of some mobility, without additional stem cell grafts and carbon-bridge fiber tendon replacement surgery.”

“Admiral? This may of interest to you. We pulled what looked like black box recorders from the giant mech...They show Southern Cross communications protocols on them.”
“...eh?!”

She awoke to a ceiling that was familiar only in its institutional blandness...
...and a familiar antiseptic smell..
...sound of machinery..
...something down her throat, pulsing with a wheezing sensation...
...a sense of restriction...
....blurred vision...
...and pain all over...
...Rei REALLY began to hate waking up in hospitals....
...and what was that triple triangular insignia there?

ROFMLAO!! Those were some great ones! Please keep them coming!



Part of the reason I love the Original over the 2040 series is that I love Kinuko Omori's singing. The fact that the original foursome were actually singers was very cool. But this is my opinion of them! I apologize to those who prefer the 2040 editions.

Well...One, I had to have an excuse to get Rei into an environment totally unlike what she's used to, and a logical excuse for the Hunters to adopt her....

Two, the meaner I make Gendo and his buddies in crime at SEELE, the less adverse people will be to what is subsequently done to him in the name of plot justice and reader outrage...

In many ways, the presence of the Robotech forces makes Gendo even MORE of a louse, because he gets desperate and when he gets desperate to get what he wants, he gets vindicative...and smug...and like a Nazi, he keeps records of his nastiness...

Records that the GMP will find, now or later...but they WILL find them...

Taking suggestions from Southern Cross and REF personnel.
Former and Properly ReVetted NERV personnel may submit suggestions as well, along with attached qualifier (see Official Greivance- Re-Imbursal Complaint Form b-231C "Declaration of Hardship Caused by Ikari Gendo") explaining reason for grievance.

Louise Nicolis would be interesting to see tinkering around the Evas, with the 15th providing heavy security.

Entirely possible...there will have to be a good reason for the 15th to visit NGEarth, but with the Masters getting the short end of the stick and backing off until they can figure out how these 'Gates' affect the overall picture, the Earth's been granted a momentary reprieve from surface combat...

And as has been hinted, the ASC has felt confident enough to use the time to move at least one Fold-Equipped vessel into the NGEarth continua and travel to the corresponding point in that universe to Tirol, and attempt to make a Gate to make contact with the REF(apologies Dairugger...that idea was too good to pass up.)....

The Masters are going to have additional future problems, but it may also affect the war against the Regent and Edwards...

“HELLo, REF! This is Captain Fitzpatrick of the Southern Cross Cosmic Corps’ cruiser Roddenberry, and boy are we glad we got through to you! Have we got things to tell you! First of all, I’m talking to you from Tirol...only not YOUR Tirol!”

Vice Admiral Rick Hunter looked at the reports and quietly boggled for what had to be the tenth time today....The Southern Cross making contact with the REF, through some sort of time/space gateway bored in from an alternate, Mars-like Tirol, in an alternate universe that contained an alternate Earth, itself fighting a war against alien entities....It seemed so unreal...
He turned his attention back to other business; the developments from Earth were dividing his attention...The revelations of the presence of the Robotech Masters attacking their homeworld had been unpleasant, and Hunter had to make some critical decisions...Send what units they had available back to Earth to help them fight the Tirolians, or proceed as originally planned against Edwards and the Invid Regent?
Another signal on his desk’s comboard yammered for his attention....Things were certainly getting busy this week...

“Holy...is that what I think it is?....”
“You know what that thing is?”
“ ‘Fraid I do...It’s called Unit-Zero-Zero...part and parcel of what enabled us to get here...Have you managed to get it working again?”
“I’m afraid this ‘Unit-00’ is a loss...As far as we can tell...We don’t know if we should be conducting an engineering analysis or an autopsy...”
“If it’s any consolation, it gives me a headache too....We’ve never seen so much dead meat since the Zentraedi War....But what about the pilot?”

“Well...we can expect her to recover...We managed to save her left eye from internal bleeding, but we’re having problems with her right....Dehydration...”
“Why’s that?”
“She forgets to blink...I think maybe we overprescribed the painkillers and she’s zoned out, but the nurses have had to go in and apply eyedrops at least three times already.”


“It’s a somewhat urgent matter, Admiral...as careful as we are to maintain a strong working relationship with NERV and with the united governments of the ‘NuEarth’, in this case we’re rather...delay...informing them of this...We have reason to believe that the Pilot in your care and custody is in great danger...from her own commander...We’d appreciate it if, for the time being, you kept her on Tirol...and don’t let anyone from NuEarth know of her continued survival. What with her injuries, it shouldn’t be too hard to justify not transporting her back to NERV...and we can use the time to accomplish other things..”

UNit Zero is a complete loss, its pilot dead or missing, said the report submitted by the Outsiders to the UN and NERV. The Outsiders are lying, Gendo thought. They’re hiding something. If Rei had died, they’d have already decanted a new one from the Room of Gaulf. This contact with their long-lost kinfolk was just TOO convenient. Well, he still had the Dummy Plug system, and there were ways to have his cake and eat it too. Yes, things could be better, but they were far better than before...

The GMP infiltration specialist wangled the joystick on the small portable panel again...fifth time was the charm as the pencil-thin probe cleared another obstacle in the ductwork and advanced another ten feet....The fiber-optic spy instrument wasn’t too different from an endoscope, save that it was designed for inspections of up to eight hundred feet of artifical cloacea, such as the sprawling ductwork and tunnel system of Tokyo-3. The specialist and the rest of his team had taken to calling their instrument a ‘Gendoscope’, and what they’d seen of the man, observing secretly from ventilation ducts, ceiling crawl spaces, and even a drain, had them joking about how they could, if so ordered, get the probe up and tell what the Commander of NERV was currently digesting without his ever being the wiser. Of course, the team was perceptive enough to know that the information they’d gathered was enough to make certain people want to make SURE he felt it and then some...
Tonight they’d try to string the Gendoscope another four hundred feet down a series of service conduits into what they’d designated 32-Black Section, and see what they could find...


Gendo put down the file folder as a sudden fit of sneezing overcame him...Damnit! I thought Section-2 had -fixed- that particular problem with the punative purge of the maintenance staff....clearly they have not yet learned their lesson!..Perhaps additional physical discomfort and another payroll reduction were also in order....

Let's use the Gendoscope on Gendo! That sounds like a winner! :D

Nah...the Gendoscope is too small(about 2-3 centimeters wide...might hurt as a CATHETER, but the GMP isn't about to go THERE..
Given what a major *-----* Gendo is, I'd suggest a Skylord missile instead...

...and SEELE too...the Jet Alone trial was even more obviously sabotaged with anti-tampering measures(the hope was that when JA melted down, it would take the evidence with it), since they figured somebody would be dumb enough to chopper-rappel aboard...unfortunately, for Gendo and SEELE, all it did was frag Misato when she got aboard...The followup MOS team's body armor was more than proof against radiation and the remaining claymores, but they're initially certain that the whole plot was to have the 'bot go chernobyl early in the demo and nuke the observers...including a visiting ASC Lieutenant-General...
Gendo's quick to capitalize on it, though, by having Shinji and Asuka transferred to Maya's guardianship...the Bridge Bunny may not be as socially dysfunctional as Misato, but Gendo figures she's ineffectual enough to be incapable of adding anymore backbone to the Children than Misato is...

Of course, NERV and SEELE are just so swimming in their own plots that they're becoming rather obvious in their machinations, where even a universe-once-removed warhorse like Leonard, who's no stranger to ploys and schemes within his own organization, and is just as paranoid to boot, can smell 'em a mile off...But as long as supplies and now nukes, and the use of the Evangelions, keep coming from this alternate world, he's willing to put up with them...It's now that NERV and SEELE are threatening the comfy little relationship he's got going with the UN(and the N2 Bomb Plot's the icing on the cake), he wants something decisive done about the stinkers...
