In a closed off, dangerous area which he reached using an unapproved link; quite different from a safe, approved, open area.

Hmm i'm not so sure avbout Cate. Even when I first met her she came across all nice but there appeared that sense of strictness even then!
"The poison dart in the cherry tart" so to speak :P

At the moment I don't have her very high on my likeables list for trying to boss Victor about and she must have one heck of an attitiude to make him link away like that!

Time will tell....

TG ;)

It's hard to tell in the pictures... did anybody notice if she has a Relto book on her belt?

Getting the GZ up and running has got to be a delicate, demanding task requiring great focus and concentration. This isn't just a matter of reading a manual and flipping a few switches. If Alexander is distracting Laxman with stress and exhaustion, then she's not solving a problem, she's making it.

You don't get more milk out of a cow by beating her. Working longer/harder at solving a puzzle (which is what Laxman is basically doing) is not the same as working more productively. Haven't many of us achieved a crucial insight to an intellectual problem by taking a break and letting our subconsciouses work on the solution? Does Alexander understand the difference between managing workers producing widgets and workers producing new knowledge?

Cate is a businesswoman. Her primary concern is going to be return on her investment.

I find myself wondering what Cate is hoping for in terms of that return. And worrying that she will push too hard and someone will get hurt.

Oh indeed. With some of the Myst series (Riven in particular), I'd beat my head aagainst the computer screen for hours, trying to work out what to do. I'd get so fed up, that I'd leave the game for a couple of days - when I returned, I'd usually realise what the next step was almost imediately.

Cate's definitely going to cause some problems in the DRC...

One has to wonder what Cate will get out of all of this investment. The kind of outlay it takes to do what the DRC is currently doing is tremendous and the return from explorers is minimal at best. There is something larger here that we are missing.

She's all business and a charity endeavor of this magnitude is REALLY bad business. She has to have a way to turn this into gold and we need to consider what that may entail:

Stripping ages of scarce resources?
Disney World D'ni?
Offering ages as vacation destinations?
Finding the secret of writing and using it as a weapon of war?

The possibilities are endless. The only way we can narrow it down is to find out all we can about her. Where does she get her money? What is her career above ground? Who are her partners?

Once we have this info we stand a better chance of discovering her plan. Nevermind when worrying about time tables and schedules, she may have more sinister plans at heart than exploration.

I hope not - I wouldn't want it to be our duty to find a replacement! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Cate has her "primary" interests at heart. Those like we've said being a return on her investment! For the moment lets call this a frustration incident because she hasn't settled in here with us yet but let's hope she isn't too hard or she'll be dealing with a few unhappy explorers!

Also let's try to shoot questions (sensible ones) at her so that she has to answer them - like JW's ;)

Yeah, that's rather sloppy. If she wished to avoid suspicion about this, she would wear a KI whether she needed it or not. The fact that she doesn't wear one shows that she doesn't care or wants people to know she doesn't need one.

Obviously, if she needs no KI or Relto book, she's a descendent of Yeesha or has Bahro blood. Simple, no?

It's time to ask her why she has neither. Let her avoid the question, because you know she will, then ask point blank about her ancestry with no apologies.

I'd just like to point out. We KNOW there was a giant energy surge in the lattice on December 19th. That is almost certainly the problem with getting the Great Zero online again quickly. The circuitry could have easily fried.

Maybe she's got one of those newfangled micro-KI under-skin implant thingies. :wink:

She could be keeping her KI in a pocket and only taking it out when she needs it. She seems decently image-conscious, so she probably doesn't like the look of the thing on her wrist all the time.
