With the discovery of the ancient TL2 Magi Class Gyphon 'Melchior', Tasha and Blammo quickly set to work. After some investigation, the Titan's reactor is discovered and primed. With that vital initial task done, Tasha leaves Blammo to see about the silvery tattoos and cybernetic implants needed to pilot the ancient machine if indeed it still even works. Deep in Orpheus she finds Medical One, a Khattan medical facility designed for Vartans, and goes forward with the operation to turn herself in to a cyborg. After a series of strange preparations, and exercises after she awakens modified, the woman finally departs with her strange new additions to find the the reactor is now ready. It isn't long before Tasha has entered the Melchior, standing before the pilot's seat with no little awe. With an oath and conviction, she steps connects to the system.
The world inside Melchior proves to be a blank one, an endless plane where Tasha stands alone, naked. She knows she is connected to the system, but had not expected this result. As she calls out, the avatar of the machine meets her and he is stunningly handsome. The godlike being greets her, and she him, before 'he' lifts her in to his arms and asks if she would complete the link with him. Despite knowing her neural array was unsecured, she agrees, her vulnerability an offering of trust and a show of her conviction in being a great pilot. And so Melchior's avatar kisses her, the system completing its connection to the young woman as the world seems to colapse around her. And it feels good.
