Re: Back in the saddle
I'm deeply sorry to have distressed you with the "mandatory" EMP hits. Frankly, this was mostly a ploy to discourage the implantation of god-only-knows-what crap into our fellow comardes. It seems to have had the desired effect, and I quietly discontinued them some time ago,
Now we are requiring standard Soviet Army monthly physicals from every Comrade just to keep track of things. However, I trust that you will come up with some way to scan yourself for "foreign objects" if you object to X-rays and Cat Scans. I now have the authority to accept just about anything that seems reasonable.
And now, as a Commissar, I am happy to be able to tell you that you are fully cleared for as much work as you can handle. I see by your Soviet records that you are suffering from migraine-like headaches if you are not able to expend your energies. May I suggest, in addition to my pursuit of a medical palliative, you speak at length with Comrade Nova Requiem, who had a similar problem and came up with a solution. Though I must say, on searching through the records of others...sadly, such solutions almost always seem to involve a stint in the Terra Nova reactor core.
At any rate, welcome home. You'll find we have new enemies to deal with, and emotional upheavals, and interference from Moscow, and...and....and. Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose.
