That’s enough, Chase. Return to base. Dr. Weller. Colonel, you’ll be pleased to know the refinements to the endoskeletons are performing nicely. Why have I received a transfer request from the Mesa? How are things with the war effort? Hard to find anything positive in the headlines these days. The Vanguard’s been reduced to strictly running defense, all we’re doing is slowing them down. I hope your progress report is better. Indeed, I have fantastic news!
I am about to *double* the number of pilots in the program! You only have one pilot so far, doctor! How did I know you’d see this as glass-half-empty? But I think you’ll rather like this candidate. Yazamin Madrani. Just like Chase, she also has a significant military experience, top of her class in infantry training, flew as a combat pilot… Just *one* little thing. No… por favor! You have to release her into my custody. From the Mesa? Yes. The Mesa detainment center… I need you to keep an open mind here! Can I take that as you’ll think about it?
