Instead of revealing their plans, they just told me about their operation. There was a small region of the west side of Nova City that was so lawless and poor that the very taxed government and public services did not go there to keep order. Nova City was to the northeast of the continent where there was the archipelago of 5 islands. On the continent, there was a beach town. An hour south from the beach was Nova City. The whole city was in very bad straights after the financial crash that tanked all the east's economy. The west end was especially blighted. It was known as Dysthymia Row in the southwest quadrant. There were drugs and gangs that filled up the gap. It made for fertile ground for people to rise up. The transmission hub that was near there. There was a derelict building that used to be a shoe store. The PEP units then renovated it into an urgent care facility for their safe house. The Radiation Clan PEP units worked there. I realized it was perfect for the Researchers faction. They could do everything they wanted and be praised for it. They all now got to experiment openly.

Medicine, prosthetics and cybernetic implants were given and upkept for free. That was great for this downtrodden community. In return, they got up and personal with a huge sample size of humans and all sorts of technology and codes. This made them actually very popular. Some of the people were aware of them being cyborgs and trusted them anyway. Now, the hub had decided to take over another derelict store. It used to be a furniture store on the opposite end of the gang area. This would now be a full hospital and be giving full care to patients. It was a 3 story building. The first floor was the waiting room and the Trauma Center and ICU. The new Radiology department and Pharmacy were on the third floor. The second floor was for the Heart Center. It seemed that was the specialization that they wanted. They all must have wanted to really study the heart. It had a department for cardiology and both a vascular and a cardiothoracic surgery room. Another general surgery theater was next door. Underground was a morgue and an elevator to the clan main hall on a lower level.

That was where they would have their labs and store their X-frames. I was ready for the foreigners to be out of our hair for good. Obviously, we were going to need a big truck or a convoy to transport all of their stuff. They would have 6 PEP and 5 AEP units as well as 3 X-frames to bring all the way across the continent. It would be a big target for the government and the reprogrammers and all the other cyberpunks that would love to loot this stuff. This would set whoever got it for life. Even all of the other clans of PEP units would love to get their hands on this lucrative convoy. I would have to go along with Paul to make sure they were alright. Once they got there, it would be a simple cake walk to get back. We had a guy with a plane that could get us. After the full 9 weeks were done, they were really to spawn everything. Sparks, Katie and Finian needed to go to the library. 06660 needed to spawn the AEP units first. Then we would drive them all to the library together. All of the PBJ Clan was there to watch them spawn. Even all my kids with Sunny and Lucy were there. It was important.
