Everything was wobbly. He felt dizzy, never before he had experienced such sudden movement. Honestly speaking, emergency jack out procedures were a thing of the bast now that a bunch of smart people decided to let everyone die.
The room was still spinning and Nightshade had no idea where he was or how exactly he had arrived there. The feline navi had to take a moment to sit down and let his twirling brain slow to a stop. That would take him a good couple of minutes, but eventually the zoanoroid would regain his focus.
"Oh..OEL. so I'm still in Electopia. Hm." He hummed. "Well, they are even more advanced than NSD so if they can help with the caliga problem its them. I guess I'll ask people around. If worst comes to worst I'll have to be their gunea pig in exchange for them removing whatever this malware is."
...and, of course, the first thing that Nightshade would see is a Navi in mirrored, green armor sipping from a water-bottle behind the counter and looking to the feline Navi. After a few moments, he puts down the water bottle and waves to Nightshade with a smile.

Nightshade sighed. "My armor used to be gray in color. It turned to this sickly green after i got internet rabies. Got bit by Greiga and the infection never stopped advancing. Good thing: I got Bug Style and a slew of Cybeast related thingies...although I can't seem to be able to Beast Out right now. Either my body is not strong enough to maintain the form or my code lacks the activation sequence to actually use the greiga infected code for something useful."
The feline dusted himself off, before turning over his attention to Edge. "Bad thing: I don't really look like a normal navi anymore. Not that I care much, though. I enjoy this body way more than usual old me. Oh don't worry, it ain't contageous. It'skinda like a werewolf curse, only that I want to transform and I can't seem to find my full moon to do it."
Sitting down from exhaustion, the feline zoanoroid took a moment to observe the Oel navi. "Also, alot of...bad stuff happened back to back to back. I kinda got into a scuffle with Caliga, and he put some of his weird noodle malware in me I need removal. I was talking to a dude about that and a way to get my BeastOut back and suddenly poof...I'm here."
He emphatised the sudden jack in with a "ta dah" gesture.
"So...since I'm here, I wonder...in exchange for being the OEL guinea pig for a while...could you guys help me removing the calinga things and possibly tell me if there's some way I can get my BeastOut back?" He sheepishly asked. He didn't really believe much would happen, in all honesty.
"Oh, also...I know this sounds weird...but can I get a copy of your Armor file? Looks really neat. At least I'd have some decently green colored stuff on me instead of this...buggy mess."
Edge looks down at his mirrored green armor, at the white and green diamond patterns across his chest, at the light reflected by his shining visage, and then looks back to Nightshade.
Edge raises his visor and sits down across from Nightshade, crossing his legs and folding his hands as he does so.
Edge: But yeah, E texted me all the crap 'ya went through. Really sucks for you...
Edge then puts his hand over his face.
Edge drops his hand and continues.
Edge: But yeah, I do have some good news! But some bad news too. The good news is that we actually can rid a Navi of those cords! It takes a while, but it's doable!
Edge then uncrosses his legs.
Edge: The bad news is that we'd literally have to delete you and re-make you from scratch.
Edge lets that sink in before he continues.
Edge: Here's the thing; we have studied Caliga for a while, but we have no idea what exactly that thing is, or how it works. Those cords literally merge with your data, meaning we'd have to tear you to pieces to remove them, which doesn't really leave anything left for you to... y'know... exist with. But there is a bright side; the cords are 100% inert and harmless if Caliga isn't around, so pretty much ignore them and they won't do anything to you. Very much unlike Embera; I really feel sorry for whoever ends up that girl's boyfriend.
Edge pauses for a moment, taking a deep breath.
Edge: As for the Juuka form; not sure what we can do there. We can take a look and see what we can find, but right now we don't know enough to actually say anything about that.

Nightshade paled visibly at the explanation. "W-well...uuuh...I mean, considering you know everything...say my juuka powers come back. Letting Caliga control a Juuka is not a good idea nor is good to anyone."
He quieted down, thinking about the implications of what was going to happen. "At this point...really...I have nothing left to lose. So yeah. I'd rather have this things removed than possibly cause any more trouble. And if I end up dead...honestly I doubt anyone would really care. This...rebuilding thing...can it deal with the infection too? Stabilize it, I dunno. I got told my data was turning into something unknown...which to be frank doesn't sound like something great. You guys are even more advanced than NSD when it comes to navi tech no? Think of it as...research. I don't think many juukas would willingly walk inside the lab wanting to be taken apart. You don't really have to do this free either. I uuh...I'll find a way to pay up whatever is needed...somehow."
Edge blinks a few times, looking Nightshade over before he continues.
Edge: I... don't think I'm expressing this right? I was actually just kidding you; that would literally be killing you and making a new Navi from your blueprints; we wouldn't even be able to save your memory. On top of that, you're not an OEL Navi, so we can't remake you regardless. As for your Juuka issues; I'm sure that we could study them, but not sure how much we can actually do.

Nightshade's tail drooped as the feline navi accepted crushing defeat on all fronts. "Right. All of my life I have been lied to, manipulated etc etc. I can't go fix the mess I made cause to do that I would have to have a whole new body full of military grade enhancements, my juuka powers, possibly the same thing Embera has and a Giga Program of some kind."
The feline juuka slowly stood up. "Right...uuuh. Well...in this case I don't need to waste your time. I'll just retire to the Outernet or something. I dunno. Mind showing me the exit?"

Nightshade stopped walking, then slowly turned around. "And you would do it for free? Well, technically you get more research data I guess..."
Waving his tail around as he thought what to do, he walked back over to Edge. "Alright. I guess a scan can't hurt. It's just...no trap or other of that stuff, please. If I need to repay something please tell me now."
Edge smiles and raises a hand while crossing the fingers on his other hand in a very obvious manner in front of himself.
Edge: Scout's honor!
Edge then drops his hands and returns to his normal wry expression.
Edge: Nah, contrary to popular belief we do have government oversight, so you really don't have to worry. On top of that, the entire thing will be recorded. We can even give 'ya a Betamax tape of the procedure so that you can show your surgery to your great, great, great... etc... grandparents.
With a "follow me" wave, Edge leads Nightshade back to one of the examination rooms, opening the sliding, glass door and motioning to the table in the center of the room with what appears to be a large camera above it.
Edge: Go ahead and get comfortable on the table and we can start.

The feline navi observed the various features and furniture of the room. His eyes darted left then right as he laid down on the table with caution. Even though he tried not to give it away, he looked somewhat distressed at the situation...as if he was hearing someone and that someone wasn't speaking encouraging words. He also seemed to be taking notes for possible escape routes should the situation escalate as it had always happened to every thing he did.
Nevertheless, the juuka stared at the camera above him quiet...waiting for whatever scan to start.
After a few moments, Nightshade is out like a light. His entire system shuts down and becomes inert, leaving him at the mercy of Edge... which in-and-of itself is a frightening prospect. However, an indeterminate amount of time later, Nightshade would awaken, still strapped to the table. As he opens his eyes, a very familiar visage stares back at him from mere inches away.
Caliga: Hello, kitty!
...Edge then removes and tosses the Caliga mask away with a smirk, pressing a button to remove Nightshade's restraints a moment later.
Edge: Sorry, I just couldn't help myself.
Edge reaches over to a nearby table and picks up a pad, looking over while still laughing to himself slightly.
Edge: Okay, we've got good news and.... news? The normal news is this; while we have isolated a fair amount of bugged data, it's not enough to be considered "dangerous". In fact, it's not even as much as many Navis who rely on bugged data have on average, so it's nothing dangerous. We've also found no direct connection to Griega or Falzer in the bugged code; it doesn't seem to follow their unique "sentient" bug patterns. That's not to say that it's unrelated, but it seems to just be a normal, bugged data. Your lab knows a lot more about your data than we do, so they should be able to purge it with a bit of work. I can send the analytics with you to give them a head-start.
Edge pauses before he continues.
Edge: And the good news is this; we can't find any cords on you. It looks like if the clown put any on you, he must have taken them off for some reason. So yeah; no worries there!
Thankfully for Edge, he dropped the joke rather quickly, cause at the sight of Caliga's mask Nightshade's eyes flared red as the navi's energy instantly spiked to the "I'm going to destroy you." level.
Nightshade sighed, getting up after getting released and listening to the news concerning him. What he was told...confused him to no end. "Not Cybeast related? Greiga bit my whole arm off. I've been told time and time again that the bugged data I have is part of me now and I have to live with it!"
He slumped down on the ground. What is real and what is fake? It almost looked like everything he knew was a lie. Well, it could be.
"Well if the bugged data is not Gregar's, how do you explain me being able to BeastOut before Rosso took my powers? This isn't making any sense! I don't even know what I am made of anymore! At least there's something good in this sea of bad...wait."
The second part of Edge's speech had him on the defensive again. Nightshade looked up, his eyes glaring once again. "How do you know about my stuff with Caliga? I never mentioned him to you." Nightshade said standing up, his claws bared. "...I never mentioned anything about him at all."
By now, he was already in a defensive stance, ready to fight or flee at a moments notice. Perhaps who he was talking to wasn't who he thought at all.
