April visits the improbably named “Burns Flipper” and after enduring another carpet f-bombing get information on the Vanguard *and* the name of the missing Guardian. Along the way she plays MacGyver 2200, finds out that police power armor isn’t waterproof and wonders why Zack is hanging around outside her room. Then bad things happen. It’s the end of Chapter 3 of The Longest Journey!
Having finally gotten into the police station, April attempts to enter the Archives only to find she needs someone to lend her a hand. Or at least an eye. She helps a guy with his stomach problems, finds that computer security is just as lax in the 23rd century as it is today and uncovers the startling truth about hovercraft safety. Just another step on The Longest Journey.
