Day Two, Seventh Hour // Voice

This is Jack Bauer.

[Jack is speaking quietly, his voice hoarse and muffled.]

By now you've probably seen the statement posted by the terrorists who've seized control of NOHoPE. I can confirm this statement is accurate. This facility has been occupied, people have been killed, and its staff and patients are now hostages. I've managed to escape, but they're searching for me. I don't have much time.

[He goes quiet suddenly. There's the sound of footsteps passing by, two pairs of feet in heavy boots. Jack only starts talking again once they've faded.]

These people are professionals. They are well-trained, well-equipped, and they are serious about killing people to get what they want. But you can not give into them.

Maybe you agree with what they’re saying about me, about the things I’ve done. Maybe they have a point. But the fact is, they lost all legitimacy the moment they attacked a hospital and took innocent people hostage. The fact is, they are trying to make this world safer for criminals and terrorists by going after some of the bravest people in the City.

[Jack pauses, takes a breath, listens again.]

I know my so-called ‘accomplices’ are probably listening to this. If you are, I want you to listen carefully. You have nothing to be ashamed of. There are people who are alive today because of the things you’ve done, the things you’ve helped me do. You put it all on the line and never asked for anything in return, not even any recognition. I owe you a lot. And no matter what anyone says about us, no matter what these terrorists do, I want you to remember that.

I’m going to hide out as long as I can and look for an opportunity to sabotage the building’s security. If I can shut down the systems interfering with ImPort powers, I can create a chance to rescue the hostages. When that happens, I need people on the outside ready to storm the building. But first we need to know where the hostages are being kept and where the power-dampeners can be disabled from. If anyone has that information, I need it now.

And to anyone out there who is working on a plan to resolve this crisis, I need to talk to you.
professorlionface: (Wait till I tell Facebook about it!)

I can already say as a former patient of the facility that they may not entirely understand how the power dampeners operate. If they only have the technological end of it in action, that isn't going to nullify all powers.

Do we know how many communicators they have access to?
professorlionface: (Don't turn around.)


[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-05-26 07:49 pm (UTC)(link)
[It would be a big club! Maybe not all of them would like each other, either, considering the hospital's namesake would be among them.]

If Danger were at her full power, I doubt this would have been possible to begin with. If the surveillance system is intact, we may be able to make some headway by gaining access to it. That would inform us of their hostages and their movements.

If Danger isn't among them, she would know more about what we have to work with. Though she isn't at her hacking best.
professorlionface: (Well...that's something.)


[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-05-27 10:13 pm (UTC)(link)
So, the first thing we need is someone to do the hacking. The second, a team of people who could work around the dampeners.
professorlionface: (Well.)


[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-05-29 06:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Standing by. Are they being held back by the dampeners? What about those whose powers wouldn't be affected? I know I wouldn't hesitate to help with that, myself.

There are a number of hackers among us, I can think of at least three who would help off the top of my head, just within the Avengers.
professorlionface: (Can't be overly concerned at the moment!)


[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-05-31 04:07 pm (UTC)(link)
When I was a patient, it was the chemical element that kept mine at bay. Felt a bit like being tranquilized constantly. Of course, in my case, my powers are all in my physiology, and that isn't something that can be disrupted like the energy many powers project.
professorlionface: (You're sure about that?)


[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-06-02 03:55 pm (UTC)(link)
If I had to make a guess of it, yes. If it doesn't require any sort of relay or transfer that can be blocked, it should be perfectly operational. Something that doesn't require an active effort, perhaps? It's a bit tricky to say for sure on that one.
professorlionface: (Hmph.)


[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-06-02 11:04 pm (UTC)(link)
I'd need a copy of the dampening technology, or at least the schematics to make a workable program to estimate it. I doubt Osborn is about to release either to my custody.

I'm afraid my data is very unfortunately hypothetical and anecdotal. The only way to prove it is, well, to ignore what they say about fools rushing in.

And even that aside, I'm sure a little brute strength and quick maneuverability would probably come in handy, as well.

You have my sword, as it were.
