“No sign of discovery?”

“No, ma’am.”

The large ship lurked at the very edge of the solar system, outside the magnetic fields that presented a last layer between planets and interstellar space. Risks of discovery were infinitesimal, but one must plan even for the impossible.

“Good. Assemble the troops for upgrade, and ask pilot to take us in. Prepare global EMP.”

The woman nodded and sank back into her alcove. All mouths around the room spoke as one.
“Entering solar system. All personnel prepare for memory upgrade.”
