So... How did Daniel realise that Patia's augs were significant? He wasn't present when Whisper had her epiphany.

He may still not know that.

His logic may be:
- Patia stunned her boss
- Patia wanting to talk privately is the cause of the lockdown
And he just realized that she is capable of controlling the station through her augs. And that may be the cause of his words, not the Whisper revelation.

However, we - the readers - know more, and may realize that he is in danger, while he does not know that yet.
We the readers may also be confused about his words - does it imply he knows Whisper revelation or not?
And because of that - from the narrative perspective - maybe his wording could be improved slightly to make it more clear?

Anyway, I am not 100% sure about her allegiance, as I suspect there may be more than one force at play.

:shock: :shock: :?

If something intelligent lives in the data ...
If something secret lives in the data ...
If something that has created illegal horiffic engineered virus attacking humans ...
If that something has a side it is acting to protect, and another side it is attacking ...
If that data lives in controller class cranial augmentations ...
If that data hides itself from the owner ... or even worse ... controls the owner ...

How deep is the terror you would be finding yourself in now? :(

That's an interesting pitch...

No one should have their burden of sin lifted... That's one's moral compass. That runs deep in who we are and what we do.
If someone tells for us what's good and what's bad, making us happy, obedient and blind - then we become thralls indeed!

Wait... if the Satan tempted Adam and Eve into eating a fruit from the Tree of Good and Evil, and I just said that this sin should never be taken away from us - does that make me a Satanist? :P

He already knew about Sarah, so it's not that much of a leap.

Not sure how Church of the Word functions with relation to good, evil and supernatural entities, but I'm half-expecting Daniel to make a Mark of the Beast reference/argument here.

Careful, you may be stepping onto that "talking heads" problem again, which you described in the last chapter!
As much as I like the philosophical debate... make something happen!

Maybe it's time for Whisper to burst in?
Or, what's happening with the (hostile?) ship coming our way?

On the other hand, I do like how the people look at each other, also across the panels. That's something I complained about few chapters ago and I am glad to see it fixed over here :)

Arguing morality with Bible-boy? Man, did Patia pick the wrong fight.

She's not quite Jak'd, but she's got some pretty horrific mental conditioning here. I wonder how it's affected when the network is cut off completely.
