Audio Log of Item #258 Examination
Location: USAF Installation at Groom Lake, NV
Foreword: Item #258 is an unused satellite developed by Project Excalibur-██ and identical to those deployed for SDI-██ System "Xye". This examination is being performed with the objective of obtaining information pertinent to the understanding and repair of Item #234 (the core component of SDI-██ System "Xye"). "R" and "N" are mechanical engineers with a background in space exploration. "E" and "A" are agents overseeing the procedure.
R: There's no conduit from these panels…are they just for show?
E: Most likely, we are not sure as of yet what it is powered by.
N: Opening superior side access point.
A metallic sound is heard, accompanied by a grunt from "N".
N: What in all-?
R: What-is that blood?
N: No, blood is brighter-colored and more opaque, and-
A sharp inhalation is heard.
N: It smells like iron, this doesn't.
A: What does it smell like?
N: I have no idea. R, here, take a sample to the lab.
"R" is heard leaving the room.
N: Continuing with the examination.
Wet, rustling sounds are heard.
N: Components 23, 24, 27…missing. Unsurprising, all the solar conversion components are gone. There's a lot of wiring, much more than there should be. Looks like fiber-optics, all pale gray, tightly-bundled. Wait a moment…there's no charge, it's certainly not electrical…It's unusually warm in here.
E: Internal temperature?
N: …37 degrees Centigrade.
A: What's that in-
N: 98 degrees.
N: That is odd. There's really an enormous amount of wiring in here, and I barely see any of the original components-wait a moment.
N: I found…something, it's not a component I recognize but-Jesus, what is this-
The sounds of rummaging can be heard.
N: It's an irregularly-shaped container, I'm not sure what it's made of, but it's not metallic…the wiring seems to congregate on this object.
A: How big?
N: Maybe 25cm across at the widest, 15cm at the thinnest…it's fairly light.
N: It's warm.
A: Same temperature?
E: N, are you okay?
N: Are you warm enough?
E: N, what-
N: Sleep now…warm and cozy…
E: Get him out of there. Now! Get him out now-open!
Loud thrashing is heard, "N" appears to be crying or laughing, it is unclear.
A: Oh God-
E: Get them out of him-
A: They're getting longer-
E: That's not fiber-optics-
N: [DATA EXPUNGED]
E: Who is he talking about?!
A: Cut the wires!
