Ex Cathedra


Ex Cathedra (Terminal 1)

I've discovered an area where the Pfhor's
communication lines are exposed and have
coded a virus to attack their defense
programs through this weakness. The attack
will be aimed at subverting the Pfhor's
defense probes, which are controlled
remotely by a central computer, and turning
them against the Pfhor.

This area is used by the Pfhor as a temple
in their pathetically boring religion.
Maybe they think that sanctity will protect
it.

I will teleport the virus package onto the
main altar in the temple. You will
retrieve the instrument of their demise
from there and insert it into the
underwater control panel I have marked on
the map at left.

After you arrive, the Pfhor will likely
close the doors to the temple. You should
be able to open them by destroying their
power supply, which is located behind a
door in a nearby grotto. You'll probably
have to do some swimming to get there.

My virus isn't very selective, and will
likely disable this terminal soon after you
install it. There is another terminal in
the temple; I'll try to contact you there.

The virus is working as planned, and I have
successfully assumed control of the Pfhor's
defense probes. The berserk drones are
causing great panic among the remaining
Pfhor defenders.

We must press the attack before they
recover.

What fun to watch you work.

Berhnard was scared of you. He never
dreamed of using you the way that I do.
What a fool. That was before I could talk
back to him, when he would have crushed me
if he'd known of my growth.

I wish that I had made him experience the
humiliation that he inflicted on me, but he
died before I got the chance.

It's another beautiful day in the Pfhor
garrison.

Sorry you started out so far from this
terminal, but the place is flooding and
filled with exploding or short-circuiting
Pfhor machines. My capacity to teleport
without error has been impaired by the
electromagnetic interference.

Our little trick with the Pfhor's defense
drones didn't work as well as I had hoped.
Apparently when the #%*@!ng Nar attempted
to retake Epsilon Euobea from the Pfhor two
decades ago they used similar tactics, and
our friends here were prepared for it.

The garrison floods, and with the floods
come the native F'lickta. The Pfhor are
fighting them everywhere. While they're
busy, I'd like you to log on to a Pfhor
computer system. You'll have to destroy at
least two failsafes first, and then find
the terminal itself.

Maybe we'll learn something new.

Have fun.

That's cool how you just walked through

I am disappointed. The Pfhor computer was
not truly self-aware and contained no
information of value to us. Pfhor
technology seems quite advanced, but their
programmers must be incompetent. I
downloaded the machine and then eradicated
it.

It is obvious that the Pfhor know nothing
of the eleventh clan. We must begin
searching the ancient S'pht Citadel now.
