[After twenty minutes of trying to use the communicator and arguing with tech support, Robo gave it up as a bad job. It wasn't that he was technologically inept. The problem was that metal fingers physically did not register on the communicator's touch screen.

Fortunately, the air was full of radio waves to pick up on. It only took another minute or two of searching to find the network and connect to it directly. If you had to guess from the voice, you'd guess that it was a man, but the slightly tinny echo to it made it hard to be certain. Sounds like a robot is talking or something.]

"Hello yes, we just used extremely advanced technology to kidnap you from another dimension, and now we want you to sit in on a ceremony wherein you swear undying allegiance to us."

I knew the US government could be a bit out of touch sometimes, but honestly this takes the cake. No, I think I'll pass on that one, thanks all the same.

[Did you know that robots can sigh? They can. Robo does now. Or at least imitates the sound as it accurately indicates how he feels right now.]

Well. I'm Atomic Robo. I've seen stranger things than this. I'm pretty confident I can figure out a way out of this mess soon enough. I'll keep you all posted.

I hate to burst your bubble, but whatever's in the Porter has a monopoly on interdimensional travel at the moment. We're still trying to figure out a workaround.

[Does he sound bitter about that? Because he's incredibly bitter about that.]

I don't have data on all the attempts, just my own. And, no offense, but there's no point showing that to anyone without significant experience in applied quantum physics. If you have that, and can convince me you're not a supervillain, I'd be willing to share.
