IMPORTANT! Before you post, remember: The imPorts taken hostage have had their comm handsets confiscated, which puts our overall information security at risk. The Soviets may be able to view our communications, even on Mirrornet.

With that in mind, I've developed a geocryption algorithm that anyone can install and use on their handsets. Anything encrypted with this shouldn't be visible on devices outside the United States. You're welcome.


[Attached is the "qgeocrypt" executable. The remainder of the post is geocrypted using it.]

I think we can all agree, priority one is that we rescue the hostages. Breaking that task down gives us the following objectives -

A. Secure our lines of communication.
B. Locate and disable the Soviet Porter / "Lackey". If we don't do that, there's nothing to stop them continuing their "confiscations."
C. Locate the hostages. A number of people are fielding discussion on that already, but ultimately we need exact coordinates.
D. Disable or circumvent power nullification at hostage location.
E. Extract the hostages.
F. Don't start a global thermonuclear war in the process. The "war" part it's a bit late for, so we'll need to focus on the "global thermonuclear" part.

I propose we form a few small teams to handle each of these objectives. If you think your talents are well-suited to one or more of them, reply with your name, powers, and experience, and we'll go from there. And yes, experience is important here. I don't need to tell you a lot of lives are at stake. Failure's not an option we can afford.

I'll start.
    Name: Qubit.
    Powers: technokinesis, teleportals.
    Experience: 4 years coordinating a large superhero team. Many more spent resolving high-stakes crises on various worlds, inc. supernova, hostage situations, and yes, wars.

((ooc: Full details on qgeocrypt are here! All it means is handsets outside the US (as defined in that comment) can't access geocrypted posts/comments. Nanites aren't included, so hostages can still see them unless other measures have been taken to keep them out. Sorry about any confusion!))

Thank you for the encryption, Qubit.

I'd like to assist with the possibility of nanites being the mode of kidnapping and possibly being blocked to prevent finding the hostages. If they are, perhaps we can find a way to unblock them and have exact coordinates for a rescue. And, perhaps we can find a way to block them from being used against us again.

Name: Kang.
Powers: The only possibly relevant power I possess is seeing the blueprints of buildings and structures.
Experience: I admit that I am not very knowledgeable on nanite technology yet, but I am very quick to learn when it comes to engineering and physics. In three and a half years, I have gone from not knowing what an internal combustion engine is to earning a GED and starting college-level courses in both subjects. I am also a retired military commander and have quite a few years of diplomatic experience.

[personal profile] resoundingpledge 2016-01-23 06:07 pm (UTC)(link)
I haven't been here long, and a lot of everything that's happening . . . it sounds really complex, and delicate. Like three people are trying to build a clock and it's being wound up before anyone's sure if all the gears line up.

I don't want it to break. So if it's something that overlaps with the government, or deals with weaponization . . . I don't think I could be involved without knowing how the pieces would fit. Without knowing everyone's working together.

But if anyone's just working here, trying to find where people are, or how to get everyone safely home . . . if you just need another pair of hands, or another mind, I'd like to help, if I can. There's a lot of special people here—maybe there's something we can do together that we wouldn't be able to do alone.


Name: Kururu Sumeragi
Powers: . . . 'Engineering', and 'Understanding and harmonizing the sounds of humans and machines' would be something close.
Experience: I've been part of a team of specialized engineers for two years; I've been their leader for eight months, now. We've been responsible for customization, maintenance and repair of our community's A-T*. And we . . . have some experience in facilitating unplanned broadcasts through communication networks. And maintaining a geothermal power station.

I've done mostly . . . research and development, kind of, of complex A-T systems. Direct experience with supercomputers, virtual reality, and a little bit with AI, though those were programmed after people instead of being self-aware on their own. And I'm good at building tools that help people use their strengths to the full amount that they can. Joining people and technology.

And I . . . have little bit of experience encryption breaking and safe cracking. I like this geoencryption algorithm though, it's a good one.

Also . . . maybe 'technologically-assisted mind-to-mind knowledge and ability sharing' should be under powers. It's just . . . I need compatible people to work with, for that. Or . . . personal support, if the mind I'm working with is a digital one. It's a little hard to fit all that in a single line.


* Air Treks, they're . . . mostly motorized inline skates, really customizable ones. A standard model has paired kinetically activated hub motors, power recovery systems, and hydraulic air cushioning—speed varies a lot, but the cushioning can usually handle a nine metre drop, vertically.

I have conducted intergalactic negotiations successfully many times and have been compiling a list of humanitarian demands and possible arguments to use to secure foreign aid. I am firmly on board with point F. in preventing a war inasmuch as possible, irrespective of the fate of the hostages.

If we will not be allowed to participate in diplomatic talks representing ourselves, I intend to insist to our chosen representatives that they allow me to at least present my arguments to them. Otherwise, I'm quite useless in terms of combat on this level.

In regards to C., I am becoming increasingly convinced they are underwater in a shuttle. I'll be updating Hermann's collaborative document with information as I acquire it.

Name: Yayoi Nakayama
Powers: Kind of like Kururu said: "Understanding and harmonizing the sounds of humans and machines". She's a lot better at it than I am... It basically makes a person and their machine as effective as they can be. I've got super hearing too. And I can turn into a bird? There's some other stuff, but that's all... I still need to learn about it.
Experience: I don't really have much. I was on the track team. I've done the...the harmonizing thing before. I've been in a lot of high stakes situations before. Life and death, people shooting at us. One time it was a missile. So...I don't know. I can stay behind and help with mechanical things here?

Your order is wrong. It should be A, F, C, E/D, B.

I'm waiting for the military response. Anything else, should it cause retaliation, will force America to divorce themselves from those who engage in it. Considering the sensitive situation, the potential for it to cause hundreds of thousands, perhaps tens of millions of deaths, we must favor the reasoning of the nation whose people's lives our actions would endanger.

They want us to wait for instruction, and that's what we should do.

crime fighting and crisis response mostly
search and rescue and medical care
though i do have some experience in field combat
but i think we would all rather avoid that part

c or e will be my highest priorities
my powers are suited best for moving people in large numbers so e might be best but i dont like to sit on my hands
even aside from our boss they have my friends
i might be able to assist in finding them if i have a general direction of where to look
and opening a portal at long distances isnt impossible for me either
