Interoffice Memo
From:  Kevin@HR.Octan
Subject:  12-month assessment
To:  Mgmt@HR.Octan
CC: DLong@Sci.Octan

Hey everyone, it's Kevin!  From HR!

22292863810_311b22054a_t.jpg

It's hard to believe, but it's been nearly a year since "the incident" involving explorer Lu Caslaug-Hing.  How time flies when one is working hard and building value for our shareholders!

Anyway, Lu is doing exceptionally well, considering what she went through.  I'm happy to announce that her cancers remain in remission, and she's had no further episodes of Brikowski-Syndrome.

She continues to have almost no memory of the three months that passed between her disappearance on Jurin II and her reappearance on Arium Minor (she was under the impression she'd only been gone for a few hours).  She has had flashes of memory involving her parents, a monster, and an unknown alien being, but is unable to provide any details or tell us anything else.

Her CLAPPIE unit also has no memory of the three months (which makes the IT folks really upset).

Because Lu is extremely reluctant to undergo any sort of GATE transit, she's remained on Kaalin following the completion of her medical treatment.

It is true that she spends most of her days underground, exploring the vast network of caves below the planet's surface.

However, I'd like to remind any Negative Neds that Lu was the one who discovered the Kthanid nest while she was "down there wasting her time and our money."

Yes, the Kthanids turned out to be particularly horrific psychic predators, but Lu can hardly be blamed for that.  Besides, from what I hear the BioResearch team has been extremely satisfied with their specimens.

It's also true that Lu has withdrawn from almost all human contact and speaks mainly to her CLAPPIE unit. This is actually to our advantage, as her CLAPPIE unit is able to keep us informed of her physical and mental status.  It says she's doing just great!

In closing, I object strongly to any suggestion that we remove explorer Caslaug-Hing from the Andromeda Galaxy, as she continues to be a valuable explorer and super productive employee.

Warm regards,

Kevin

PS: I just heard from Lu's CLAPPIE unit, and it said she's spending her day off in a cave meditating and doing Yoga.  Sounds pretty healthy and well-adjusted to me!

17722877618_0b8a923d32_o.jpg  Damn, that one got away from me.  Ow.  Kept it stable for a while though.

18186685126_319caaebf1_o.jpg Yes, that field was stable for nearly fifteen seconds - a new personal record!

17722877618_0b8a923d32_o.jpg  I'm ... I'm going to try again.

18186685126_319caaebf1_o.jpg  Wait - Lu, I think we should "call it a day."  Your nose is hemorrhaging again.  Also, I did a bad thing.

 17722877618_0b8a923d32_o.jpg  Oh joy ... what did you do this time?

18186685126_319caaebf1_o.jpg   I took a life.

17722877618_0b8a923d32_o.jpg  What!?!

18186685126_319caaebf1_o.jpg  I know!  And it wasn't even an inferior "meat-based" life like yourself - it was a true life, a digital intelligence.  

17722877618_0b8a923d32_o.jpg  What are you talking about?!

18186685126_319caaebf1_o.jpg Oh Lu, I was helping John Hannibal, who's not all the way dead, and I took over a space station in the Ertuaq system! And I'm going to keep it!  But shhh, and but so now, Lu, I need -

17722877618_0b8a923d32_o.jpg  Whoa, calm down CLAPPIE.  Come on, let's head back to the surface.  You get a bit paranoid when you're cut off from your peripherals down here...

18186685126_319caaebf1_o.jpg  Hah!  Yep!  Okay!  Let's head up, and I'll tell you all about it...

Fantastic build! I love the layers in the rock and the glow-in-the-dark shots. Very clean and well-presented. I'm definitely stealing that bed design for next week. :laugh:

The cave is excellent and it took me a minute to notice that her "explosion" took out the one rock pillar thing. I'm always a sucker for CLAPPIE! I really like the glow in the dark pics and I also will be stealing your bed design in the future. :laugh:

@mediumsnowman and @Kodan Black - you're more than welcome to use the bed design - it would make sense for Octan to have a standardized bed in most of their facilities :classic:
