Is it hot in here?

Holo Core 1100
Faith's eyes fluttered open. Something was wrong. These pesky little things
had a way of disturbing her catnaps. And the way she was going, she really
needed them. Alarms were sounding. This was worse than she thought.
Thinking quickly, she began to isolate herself even more. She wasn't the
Systems Specialist. Crewmen may have been trained to operate the computers,
a few may have even know a little about how they work. But she had a

"What are you suggesting...?" she inquired, trying to stop her lip from
"Nothing...yet...Simply that you..stay out of my way..." his voice cracked
electronically. Apparently there was something fundamentally wrong with
Bob's program. He was all loose wires. He wanted something more from her,
that was for sure. Help perhaps. She didn't completely dislike the way he
