Does she still have her encrypted bone-phone? Is it secure enough?

Nobody's on the other end to listen, and if they were, they're in no position to help. Also, if Schlock can hear it without an hacking, you know Chinook can. Any communication would have to be entirely hypernet-based with no component that transmits sound via any medium but direct nerve stimulation. The bone phone vibrates the skull.

Back in Alpha Complex we'd call this the old "Answer and Dive For Cover' moment.

There's no point in diving for cover. There's nowhere to hide and if they run they'll only die tired. The only choices for these characters is abject terror, hiding in a corner, and capitulation. They either go somewhere and be as non-threatening as possible until everything blows over and pray she doesn't decide she would rather them be dead, or else they do everything they can to cooperate with her, hoping that that will result in her not killing them.

Granted, the only "threatening" thing they were on the receiving end of for now is the "big angry head" mode. They're likely in no position to do anything but try to, well, talk to her. And Sorlie seems to be composed enough to know that you don't try to reason with a hysterical person, because that's impossible - something Petey, despite Putzho's warnings ("Scary face; stop talking.") completely failed to realize.

Problem is, how do you give an AI a hug to defuse the situation, so you can reason with them once they've calmed down?

There's not even any point in leaving. Even if they could get to a ship and teraport away, this would leave them subject to long-gun fire (from Chinook or whoever else has been long-gunning their way across civilized space). Ironically, the safest place for them is right where they now are.

Are you saying that it is Alpha Complex?

Para and Petey need to have some dialog together. Just because.
