SUBJECT: Chronon particle stockpile update
Please be advised that we are now at a point where Lifeboat activation may occur. Accordingly, I have ensured that preparations are underway for activation. As a part of that, what chronon particle stores still remain at the Ground Zero harvesting operation are being moved to the headquarters and placed into the master chronon particle repository, ready to be placed under the CFR’s control.
Please be aware that what we have managed to accumulate until this point is very likely to be all the chronon particles we ever have access to. Due to the Fracture’s effects on the Meyer-Joyce field, the Ground Zero anomaly is showing definite signs of weakening. As a result, the chronon particle yield decreases drastically, and will soon drop to baseline. While we will obviously continue more traditional chronon particle harvesting operations in order to maximize our stockpile, we all need to recognize that sourcing them outside of the Ground Zero conditions is extremely inefficient. Or, in plain terms: unless we find another source of chronon particles – and I don’t believe we will – what we have now is all we will ever have.
Please be aware that all use of chronon technology eats into our limited resources, and while we of course recognize that we need to have our Strikers and other soldiers operate in stutters, each operation undertaken will eat away at our stockpile, and, in very real terms, cost us days of Lifeboat runtime. Accordingly, we have to plan all use of this technology closely and choose our battles carefully.
That said, we should also realize the ongoing situation with Jack Joyce constitutes an emergency, and will most likely require unconventional chronon particle investments. Just the same, we should be aware of the cost.
I expect to see projected chronon particle consumption rates for the foreseeable future and simulations of how long our stockpile will last, adjusted for all of the scenarios we have discussed (see our last meeting minutes), in our next Monday Meeting.
