[There’s a few minutes of unsure tapping on the communicator’s microphone, accompanied by some quiet mumbling about radio frequencies. A voice with a Chicagoan accent that is just faintly reminiscent of Humphrey Bogart finally makes itself audible.]

Been a long time since I’ve seen one of these. Hope I’m not accidentally talking through somebody’s refrigerator.

Anyway, good afternoon, to everybody listening. Nick Valentine here. Nice to meet all my fellow "Imports," I guess, is what they're calling us. Figured I should get used to the broadcasting life, since that's what they've hired me to do. I always thought I had a face for radio.

[The slightest of pauses while he gathers his thoughts.]

I’ve been to a couple of hardware stores now and I think it’s time to swallow my pride and just ask. You folks wouldn’t happen to make Assaultron circuit boards yet, would you? Anything with titanium wiring and rad-guard circuits would work, though. My last diagnostics didn't look so good and I'd rather fix it before it gets too out-of-hand.

I’m starting to get the suspicion I’m out of luck on that one.

While I’m on the subject, though, anybody know a good mechanic? I’m not half bad myself, but I could probably use a primer on all this old tech. Don’t want to end up turning into a toaster or anything.

Give me a ring if you’ve got anything for me. Thanks, and... hm. I'd better come up with a catchy sign-off, pretty quick here.

Sorry, I haven't heard of 'Assaultron circuit boards.'

[A pause and then-]

...Why would you turn into a toaster?

No, I don't think I know how it goes.

[Laurel is still confused. Something didn't seem right.]

Could you maybe explain what you meant by that? I'm not sure I fully understand.

Ain't never heard of an 'Assaultron' but I know an engineer that works with robotics. Assuming that's what you need the 'mechanic' for? If not, I'm a decent mechanic.

[ The voice in question distinctly sounds robotic, though with human-like cadence. As well as being very polite. ]

I'm not familiar with "Assaultron circuit boards" despite not belonging originally to this era either, there may be a difference in universes to take into account as well. Still, it may be wise to try looking in the city of De Chima, which has a penchant for technology and several prominent imPorts who may be able to help you.


[ He can think of a couple at least, if they don't turn up themselves. And now that he's been helpful, he digs a little. ]

If you let me indulge my curiosity, sir, may I ask what era you are from?

Oh, I'm sure you'll find some kind of bullshit slogan that sounds great on the radio. And then you can have all the import celebrities on your show that you want.

[ A. Beat. ]

I'm more of a hobby-guy, but if you have anything in particular you're looking for. Like, ah, what kinds of circuits in particular? The tech here's a little more advanced than the year, so you'll probably find something that works.

Hardware isn't my expertise, but if you need any debugging or patching for your software, I can help you with that. And I know people you can contact for the hardware part, if you haven't gotten help for that already.

This world isn't very up to speed on robotics, though, so you won't find what you're looking for here, I'd think.
