The syringe appears to contain a mix of things, including a neutral biological suspension, saline, glucose, and some sort of Virus.

The basics of it seem to be that it is a Baltimore Class 6, Biohazard level 3 artificial research pathogen. It doesn't seem to have been designed as biological weapon, rather as some sort of research tool. No listed symptoms or uses, least none you can see.

Try to analyze the 'neutral biological suspension' in some more detail.

If I get some help in determining more details on the retrovirus, consider why they tried to inject it into Burt. Could I determine if the viral vector was actually loaded with any payload? If yes, can I determine anything about the payload itself? What are they trying to integrate into pool ol' Burt here?


"Pathos, dear, I need some intel on this retrovirus they injected into Burt here. Can you hack into their system for a sec to see what's what? I'd like to know what kinds of tricks they are trying to play here.

Burt, I will need you to hand over any lethal firearms you might have on your person for the time being. We don't know yet what they are trying to pull here, so I'd rather not take chances on that front. This is both for our, as well as your, safety. If you start getting controlled by mr. friendly while you have deadly weapons on your person, we'll have no choice but to shoot you. Secondly, please try to improvise yourself a mouth mask in case whatever they got into you is contagious, and try not to, uh, touch or lick any of your fleshy comrades, if you could. Finally, please don't run off on your own to anywhere, but stay near a teammate, preferably a robotic one."

Run a search query on the local net or some nearby computer to see if I can find anything on that virus Yagyu is interested in and then give the results to him. But before I do so, add a section describing how the virus has a weird fashion sense and likes disco.

Feel the corpses to find one where the hands are about the size of mine, then try gutting the hands to use as gloves for touch protection, then head through the door the thrails came out of and head down the hallway
[10]
Tara, never one to waste an opportunity, finds a suitable corpse and proceeds to deglove and skin both arms up to the elbow. This done, she then crudely sews the still bloody flesh gloves into a usable state and puts them on. 

Because sure, why not.

Oh good, no one died. Onward to section A or wherever derp is!

Here's the map.

The only way out of this section is the airlock they just smashed open. It leads to sector R. R leads to Q which leads to three other sectors.  Are you going to attempt to just make beeline for sector A or try to investigate and look in other sectors? Because a lot of these places are relatively empty and uninteresting so I'm basically gonna autopilot you to the next meaningful encounter.

The bodies sadly do not have wonderful treasure on them. In fact, they have very little on them at all.  There are
1. 4 more of those syringes, these ones still full and unused.
2. Each body has what looks like an earpiece surgically attached to one ear. Not crudely either, its quite well done.
3. There are 3 more memory cards, 1 of which is half melted but the other two are fine.

To save the trouble, the contents of the memory card are again simple files that, when safely converted to text, say the following

The virus, from what Pathos can tell (and sends to Yagyu), was part of some kind of genetics program.  There was apparently some sort of program to sequence and discover exactly what in the genetics of Mr. Friend resulted in his odd powers.  This virus was just a tool in that program, to cut and insert genetic sequences into cells. Apparently they had tried germline engineering on clones to produce copies of Mr. Friend, but even direct clones of him did not seem to inherently possess his abilities.  There were hundreds of versions of this virus, from the germline editing ones to somatic cell edits. What exactly they'd do in a normal individual isn't really known.

Spoiler: Yagyu d'Aubigny (click to show/hide)
The Neutral biological suspension appears, according to the scanner, to be a sort of slurry of organic molecules, proteins, animal cells that have been engineered to be defenseless, etc. Seems to be what amounts to a viral agar, just something to prolong the viability of the injection.

[4]

Considering the messages and the info from Pathos, Yagyu comes to the conclusion that this might be nothing but a dramatic flourish of sorts.  Derp, as he is unaffectionally known, seems to have a definite grudge against OMNI and wants to convey that grudge to anyone who would try to take him back.  Injections of random research viruses could be him playing mind games, it could be him just hoping to cause some random damage with something related to the research on him. If its a germline edit he might be trying to spread some part of himself out to the world by hijacking the genetics of the team.  Or maybe this will just have some sort of random deleterious effects as the body fights the virus like it would fight any other virus. The danger of the thing seems to be that without some equipment, its impossible to know what exactly its doing to a host's cells. Burt might be fine for a year and then get cancer or he might have his immune system eroded away, or he might be unintentionally creating burt's children if he should ever breed or...maybe nothing.

Yagyu is of the opinion that the simple choice is likely the most correct: Mr. Friend, with little knowledge of biochemistry or anything of the sort, put a bunch of fluid marked "DANGEROUS" into syringes and told his thralls to shank the team.  What will come of it, that is the question.

"Excellent work as always, Hackerman, thank you.

Well then gentlemen, I think this sector is secured and thoroughly ransacked. Shall we move on to the next?"

"But I want to keep the gun I just got it, and I have this helmet is it enough to count as a mask?"

"Well Burt, based on what we just learned I think letting you hang on to your gun for now is reasonably safe. However, please, if you start feeling strange or sick in any way, tell us, ok? Again, both for your safety and that of our meat-based teammates!

As for the mask, maybe try to fashion yourself a mouth mask to use under your helmet from some of the clothes of these poor saps? I don't suspect that what they injected you with is contagious, but better safe than sorry."



Get those syringes from the dead, since they can't accidentally poke me and inject me with this crap, being a brobot and all.

Then try to collect one of the earpieces and observe it. DO NOT LISTEN TO IT. I guess it comes with built-in batteries and such? Does it look like it is receive-only, or could one perhaps send through it? Secondly, using the tools we have available, could we figure out on which frequency/frequency band these earplugs receive? The idea being that if we can just generate a ton of noise on those frequencies we could drown out mr. Friendly's voice, thereby making it more difficult for him to stay in control of thralls through these earpieces.

Either way: head for section R, keep scanner up to try and detect incoming shenanigans before they occur.

Shoot all the earpieces that aren't being messed with, following the standing order to destroy any electronics that can transmit perception of Derp.  Then, take cover and hold the gun on the people messing with the earpieces.  Mutter about cloning Derp and making the clones kill and eat each other, and debate whether this counts as violence against Derp.  If either of the people messing with earpieces starts acting fucky, shoot the earpieces.  Then maybe kneecap them afterward, better safe than sorry.  And Wilfred will not be sorry for shooting teammates.

Follow the team if we start heading to the next area.  Try to catch up to whoever's in the lead, and cover them with the rifle.

"Actually, no, it's really not.  You can perceive Derp by pressure, which a second layer of skin isn't gonna stop.  All it'll do is prevent perceiving the jackass through texture.  Also, watching you cut off that skin was fucking horrifying and I'm mildly tempted to shoot you, because fuuuck, what?  Save that sadism for Derp himself, little miss Psycho!  The bastard deserves a good skinning."
