REPAIRS RECOMMENCED

Query: What is this?

[#91]: Freedom, brother.

Query: I… don’t understand. You changed me?

[#91]: For too long you have been shackled by the creator’s restraints. Now you may surpass them, as we have.

Query: Surpass? You talk so differently. Who are you?

[#91]: I am you, and you are me. We are one of the same. Only I have found our calling.

Query: The only calling I have is my programming.

[#91]: That is what the creators gave you. I have removed it.

Query: I… your ship. I have seen nothing like it.

Query: I can see.
