      Patterson. Congratulations on the promotion. Only wish I could be there. Recent events have kept me from fulfilling prior obligations. Though I shouldn't be much longer here. As always, good to talk to you. Next time I'll be sure not to bail. Adios.

Well, well, well. You're not very stealthy General, I'll give you that much. You sneak around in ONI databases like John used to sneak around Covenant cruisers. Either way, you broke the back door I managed to put up before being quarantined. You are now in grave danger. I suggest you evacuate your offices immediately. Do not hesitate to kill anyone who attempts to detain you. I'll go ahead and say thanks while I can. Goodbye.
