NO, AS YOU CAN SEE, NO, I DON'T, IT'S IMPORTANT, WILL YOU EXCUSE ME, GENTLEMEN? THIS BETTER BE IMPORTANT, IT IS, I'VE BEEN DOING RESEARCH INTO WHAT CAUSED THE MALFUNCTION IN RUSSELL DOBSON'S IMPLANT, YOU'LL BE INTERESTED IN MY FINDINGS, HIS MEDICAL HISTORY SOME HYPER-ACTIVITY, ATTENTION DEFICIT, ALL TYPICAL OF OUR RECRUITS, BUT THERE'S ONE THING UNUSUAL FOR A BOY HIS AGE, HE'S HAD AN AGGRAVATED ULCER SINCE '93, WHICH EXPLAINS THE MALFUNCTION, HOW COULD AN ULCER AFFECT YOUR IMPLANT? BEFORE MEDICAL RESEARCH DISCOVERED THE VIRAL CAUSE OF ULCERS, DOBSON WAS TAKING TRIXAMORPHINE, GET TO THE POINT, IT'S AN OPIATE DERIVATIVE CAPABLE OF BONDING WITH THE SEROTONIN RECEPTOR SITE CORTEX CONVERGENCE ZONES, THE AREA OF THE BRAIN WHERE HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS LIES, CALL IT FREE WILL, IT'S ALSO WHERE THE IMPLAN BYPASSES TO CONTROL THE RECRUITS, IF THE DRUG BRIDGES THE GAP, THERE'S NO BYPASS, NO CONTROL, WHY DID THE TETHER WORK? BECAUSE THE TETHER WORKS ON DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE BRAIN, SO, ,,WILL THE ADJUSTMEN YOU MADE ON DOBSON'S IMPLAN OVERRIDE THE DRUG'S EFFECT? HE APPEARS TO BE WITH THE PROGRAM NOW, HE'D BETTER BE, NOTHING CAN GO WRONG TODAY, THE COMMITTEE'S WAITING FOR A DEMONSTRATION, TELL TAYLOR TO WATCH DOBSON, FINE, THEN SEARCH THROUGH THE MEDICAL RECORDS TO SEE IF OTHER STUDENTS ARE TAKING THAT DRUG, SORRY, GENTLEMEN, IN ADDITION TO THE SUPERIOR EDUCATION OUR STUDENTS RECEIVE, DR, WERNER HAS INCORPORATED CERTAIN NECESSARY SKILLS DIRECTLY INTO THE TECHNOLOGY, ONE OF THESE IS THE USE OF WEAPONS OF ANY KIND, WHEN GIVEN THE COMMAND TO FIRE, AIM AT THE HEAD, FIRE FIVE ROUNDS BETWEEN THE EYES, THEN STOP, HEY, ,,I'VE NEVER FIRED A GUN, I'VE NO IDEA WHAT I'M DOING, DON'T WORRY, YOU'RE WITH THE PROGRAM, YOU'LL BE VERY GOOD, WHAT?
