In other circumstances, Cameron would keep all his reactions to himself and never dream of revealing them. But therein lay the delicate nature of his work: sometimes revelations were necessary and helpful. That was the gamble he was playing with right now as he let his wariness sweep across his face. He inhaled deeply and nodded. “I am an engineer and operations officer. That is my background. But… I am also currently and Intelligence operative tracking a possible saboteur. At first I though that Doctor Greene was mixed up with things he shouldn’t be, but the more I’ve learned the more I’m convinced that someone is trying to make it seem that way. Why? I’m not certain and it may not matter. Greene’s work is experimental and highly classified. He knows that someone from Intelligence is monitoring his research because they are the ones that started him on his path, but he doesn’t know it’s me. You were looking for the components to make a bomb, but that might not be necessary if someone has corrupted Greene’s experiment.”
“Ah.” Vesta said, letting the news was over her.
She’d had her suspicious about Russo’s behavior–still did, to be frank–but she believed she got a glimpse of the real man letting his façade down and was willing to go along with it for now.
“Mr. Russo, I admit I know very little about the wider context going on here in this station. I’m just an overprotective teacher and I have a feeling that somehow my ship and the cadets under my care are somehow tied into this, too.
“I admit to have been suspicious of your motives at first, but there absolutely seems to be an issue in the lab and if it’s not Greene, who else has immediate access to the experiment? Someone who may have the knowledge to… explode a system?”

Russo blew out a breath and gestured for them to keep walking. There was an emergency situation after all. “Doctor Greene is renowned in his field of biophysics and there are many scientist and medical professionals here because they get to work with him. We’re talking at least a hundred people who have access. Narrowing down skill sets isn’t as simple as you may. You can fake or hide skills. My instinct is that it’s not someone obvious. I don’t know what their end game is, but my gut also says that causing destruction in the Sol System is not the goal, but… if they sabotaged the right things and adding some other complications? It’s possible… unlikely, but still possible.”
Vesta continued following Russo, thinking. “The Prophets. At least a hundred. What are the goals of this experiment now? That has never been made clear to me.”

Russo shook his head. “Nor was it supposed to be. That’s the classified part. But I should clarify that the experiment is more than just the stuff going on in specialized lab. Doctor Greene has different people studying the after effects of whatever he does. Those that have access to the lab are far fewer. Maybe eight or nine, including Greene himself, Captain Alshoi and Commander Rice.”
He stopped abruptly and gazed hard at Rahm. “Greene is looking at the various and long-term effects of subspace on organic matter, and yes that includes samples of humanoid tissues.”
“Ye’phekk maktal subspace phekk kosst amojan human tissue!” Vesta muttered as the two continued toward the Science level.
“I’ve had my suspicions, Mr. Russo, and that little fact deepens them. Of the dozen or so people who have access, have any of them had express knowledge of the Challenger’s coming arrival or showed any keen interest in it Cargo or crewman?”
She quickly explained all that had happened with Ensign Morton and the last cadet cruise as the two continued their rush to the Science level.
