You know, I think I know exactly what those agents are up to.

The inhabitants of the All-Star are there because they're in hiding - but now they've been discovered, and they know from the crew imprints and/or ship logs that Urtheep has their location on file. Jozagle's Purse was trying to cover up the location of Stellar Enclosure 4118-6 - by destroying every record of its location.

If the brain simply wanted to keep themselves a secret they would have hijacked the initial scouts that found the place, rather than allowing them to report back. They have to be up to something else, some more complicated arrangements.

Edit: I was working off the previous strip. Guess I'm just super wrong about everything today, hohoho.

Which is why the ongoing mission of the hijacked former crew of the Purse is probably to find and delete all records of that location. And possibly "delete" anyone with that knowledge in their heads as well - I begin to see where the Toughs may come in...

...Did Evvy find an exploit in RedHack's hardened variant?

We don't actually know if this species is using the hardened redhack. They are new to us, which means they probably aren't terribly close to the UNS. And who knows how far the Oapha and Petey have spread it otherwise.

Though if anyone was going to hijack a "hardened" augmentation like redhack I would expect it to be this kind of massive computer. Nothing is perfectly defended after all. If there is a way for information to get inside, and a way for that information to affect the consciousness, then someone on the outside can make changes with enough effort. And that's pretty much required of anything alive.

Also as for Evvy not keeping the scouts from reporting it's a massive stellar brain, but it's not omnipotent. It probably took some time for it to identify them and figure out a way to hack their brains. If it could perfectly react to and counter intruders as they showed up, then it would be powerful enough that it wouldn't really have to hide in the first place.

If longguns are a concern, and the Tough's are taken, they'll probably learn about a whole lot of long guns and people who are watching the toughs ... and then that there are three different ships, co-ordinating, and reporting to those long guns ...
