Lost Oasis, Io
Asher: Assistant! Is that you? Vex energy readings are off the charts. Go find out what's happening, and be quick about it.
Spine Burrows, Io
Ghost: Asher, we found Vex protecting some kind of construct. It's pumping energy into the ground.
The Guardian fight Tekton, the Constructive Mind, before it teleports out.
Ghost: Asher, we found a construct injecting something into the ground, but a Vex Mind showed up and… took it.
Asher: The Mind… "Took it"?
Ghost: Yep, just… shwoop. Took it. We're tracking it now.
Lost Oasis, Io
Asher: I hypothesize that the Vex are preparing to fully machinoform this moon.
Ghost: Like you do.
Asher: Ah, yes. Laugh it off. The Vex are simply planning to transform every planet in this system into a cog in a vast, inscrutable machine. They merely wish to convert every particle of matter on ths moon, living or dead, into a radiolarian solid!
Ghost: Well, when you put it that way…
The Guardian hunts the Vex to a series of platforms overhanging the cliffs
Ghost: Asher, we followed the Mind to some sort of sync plate
Asher: How curious. See if you can establish a connection with the Vex Collective. I've designed a virus which might prove… useful.
Ghost: A virus, huh. I hope you know what you're doing…
The Guardian establishes a connection
Asher: Ha! I've established a link into the Collective, but I can't deploy the virus. A Vex Mind is blocking deeper access.
Ghost: Oh, probably the one that shwooped the construct! We'll find out.
The Guradian fight Tekton, the Constructive Mind
Asher: According to the Collective, the Mind is summoning some sort of… pestilent defence
The Guardian destroys Tekton, the Constructive Mind
Ghost: We destroyed the mind, Asher.
Asher: Yes, yes. Now return to solid ground, before the Vex reconfigure their thought protocols. Those platforms are about to disapear.
The Guardian returns to solid ground.
Asher: I've just lost access to the Collective. Nonetheless, I did manage to release the virus. I imagine the Vex will find this development… rather upsetting.
Ghost: Heh heh. That doen't sound ominous!
Asher: Indeed! We shall allow this experiment to unfold in it's own time.
