You okay? I’m fine, love. The question is… Are you?
Today I had a crappy day in real life but a great day on tumblr and I guess that’s going to have to be good enough.
I like the idea of Connie’s final message being encoded with something to break the failsafe within Beta’s programming. Like there used to be a trigger word or phrase that was built in to stop her like any other smart AI, like in Spartan Ops - the ships AI was disabled by the phrase ‘undead iridium’ which made the AI go docile and obey every command but he was able to over come it eventually.
