Taking his partner's PET back into his hand, Alexander nods, noting the OEL logo now resting on the front of his personal program. K-358 stopped being solely his design a long time ago, but, to have this much of his program's initial source code ownership taken away made him feel a sense of loss.
He didn't let that show, and instead looked up at the doctor. [ASCII] - "Perfect. Where can we begin testing his new capabilities?"
Waiting for his answer, Alexander activated the screen to check on K-358. He turned it on to find the Navi in near constant motion, running round and round and round on his personal track built into the PET's network. Not wanting to disrupt the program from his training, he pulled up K-358's natural tracking algorithm to clock his Navi's speed - his processors clocked more than a few tens of gigabytes per second, right that instance, and it showed with each lap around the track that his energetic speed and time scale maintenance program was getting faster.
He looked up at the doctor, astonishment blatant on his face - K-358 had never been that fast, before, nor anywhere near it. Was this the power of the temporal processor?
Everett nods and motions to the testing facilities, walking Alexander in that direction.
Everett: I'm actually very happy that you'd like to test him here. Our head Navi-researcher in charge of the reality program had a hand in installing the upgrades, and wanted to test K-358 for himself
Everett leads Alexander to one of the stations. a fair sized arena, solid white and round with no particular features, lays empty before them. Just as with the rest of the facility, it's designed to display the fighters as if they were physically there. All that Alexander had to do is log K-358 into the system and let the test begin.
...off in the far end of the room, a tall, lithe Navi stands with his back to Alexander and Everett, his arms crossed as he waits in silence. His features are largely lost to distance, but one visually striking detail translates through; a pair of large, bladed horns rising from his head...
The young computer enthusiast follows Dr. Everett to the console, looking the battle arena over. Just before lining K-358's PET up with the sensor to jack him in, he pauses, taking note of the other Navi at the end of the room. The fact that a Navi was moving aroudn was perfectly normal in such a place; it simply caught his attention and got him thinking about something . . .
[ASCII] - "Actually, could you log in another Navi, or a virus or something? I specifically want to test his FreezeFrame Protocol, to see how it is running in comparison to his past data rates. Afterwards, we can get a more specific look at his other abilities."
Warrior: Heyo. She sure is, more than ever I might add. I'mm'a hit you up on discord in a bit to discuss some things, just giving you a heads up ahead of time when you get the random friend request for that lol
