...not particularly, no.

Then whatever juicy information is locked away on Orrishid's servers will remain unknown to him.

Permalink

...does anyone on this ship have any skill with that?

Permalink

Andronikos might?

Permalink

He asks him.

Permalink

He investigates. "That some pretty serious encryption. Don't think I can crack it, huh."

Permalink

"How certain is that 'don't think'?"

Permalink

"Gimme a week, I might get it. Can't say I won't trip any flags, though."

Permalink

He sighs. "We'll probably need that for tomorrow, don't think a week'll cut it."

Permalink

"Sorry, huh. What for?"

Permalink

"We're going to Nar Shaddaa tomorrow and Lord Occlus asked me to look this up."

Permalink

"Good luck."

Permalink

"Thanks," he sighs. Maybe he can figure out how to do that splicing thing today.

...no he can't. He goes up to Occlus.

"So er how did you hear of this CN-12? I can't really find any references to it."

Permalink

"Imperial Intelligence keeps an eye on such technologies."

Permalink

"- oh. And - can I have access to that?"

Permalink

She flicks at her datapad. "I've sent you the files."

Permalink

"Thank you!"

And he goes off to read them.

The CN-12 is going to be a quantitative leap in this class of processors, outdoing its competition in size and power draw by a factor of five. It will potentially enable more powerful and faster turbolasers, more accurate firing solutions more quickly. See also the report on the proposed "Eradicator"-class weapon family. Securing an exclusive contract with Orrishid is a priority, secondarily securing a prototype to reverse-engineer, thirdly to prevent the Republic from achieving the same.

...stupid war. Is there any more to read?

Permalink

Lots of arcane technical stuff, about half of it marked "hypothetical".

Permalink

Well he's smart enough to at least sort of get what the arcane technical stuff is maybe getting at.

Permalink

Then he might have a better idea of what's being talked about tomorrow.

Permalink

Okay good. He'll read and try to understand as much as possible and be prim and ready tomorrow.
