So Maxim 20 has just been foreshadowed, but who is calling the shots here?

The real hack was way back when Neeka was picking through the robots brain matter. Her spreading her internals into the ship's trash system was the second stage. And the infiltrators are finally gaining control, or choosing to exert it.

I like this theory better because it both gives them a longer timeframe to conduct the hack, as well as physical access rather than the supposed wireless hacking of the Ot-Skadat.
Pulling this out of the other thread to allow John and Eeyore to keep debating their positions.

I'm tempted to take this further, neither the Ot-Skadak nor Neeka have been suborned, but Tagon has. Not by brain hack, but by social engineering by the AllStar team. He and the Daggermother have been guided to believing the AllStar can hack anything by the events, and a well-timed jamming of all signals to cut off a response from the bosun has lead them to take on the only unhackable defenses they had left.

27. Don't be afraid to be the first to resort to violence.
20. If you're not willing to shell your own position, you're not willing to win.

I'd call that a best-case scenario.

Agreed... but so very unlikely.

Well the infiltrators just got Tagon and crew to get rid of the Ok-Skadat warriors. Whether it was clever social engineering or outright hacking they managed to neutralize those reinforcements at basically no cost to themselves.

"These may be sufficient tow in the day if the hive's comms are jammed."
Is the jamming an unfortunate side-effect of disrupting the communication between Tagon and Cindy or did the jammer actually want to disrupt the hive and possibly the propagation of the virus towards Eina-Afa? If it's the latter, could it be that Putzho has arrived?
