Tassiter: The worker bot will open a path to the quarantined zone! I need you to get inside and report back what you've seen.
(Drop into maintenance tunnel)
Tassiter: Now move your stink-ridden mass to the quarantine zone. The worker bot will get you inside.
(Activate worker bot)
Tassiter: Now, get inside and show me this hasn't been a spectacular waste of time.
(Enter Quarantined Area)
Hyperion: Warning. Entering contaminated zone.
Ral: MY WORM IS FILLED WITH MIIIIIINDS!
Tassiter: These employees have been sucking up oxygen and retirements benefits for weeks now. Terminate them.
(Kill 6 infested workers)
Tassiter: Oh, you're still alive? Fine -- be a good little button-pushing automaton and remove the lockdown.
Tassiter: I'll have more work for you later, if you don't choke to death on your own saliva. Meantime, one of those workers seemed slightly less homicidal than the others -- maybe you should talk to him and possible get stabbed in the throat. That'd be funny.
Tassiter: It appears the infection does exist and it's driven the hull workers insane. How interesting.
