Alpha has won a sweepstakes he didn’t even know he’d entered, and he’s received six tickets to the fantastic Oasis del Vacío! The artificial sun is high, the drinks are fruity, and the sand beach at the wave pool is SO realistic. But is all well in paradise?
No, it isn’t. The beautiful Oasis del Vacío has a serious networking problem. An unresponsive front desk, power malfunctions, and visuals of a man yelling perturb the guests. Can United Division stand to get some actual relaxation in their lives? Or will this mystery turn their trip into a working vacation?
Surprise! It’s a working vacation. The previous person responsible for managing the hab’s computer systems, Habmonster, left for greener pastures. In his stead was Kyle, a beta fork the owning corp created from Habmonster – and then edited with heavy psychosurgery to make him more tolerable. That glitchy half-ego nearly shut down the whole hab.
Kyle has since been replaced with a new transhuman employee, so all is well (enough) once again on Oasis del Vacío. And most of UD got a form of vacation after all.
