SGC - Archives Storage
« on: April 20, 2018, 01:27:12 PM »



While the vast majority of things that were found by the various SG teams usually ended up in Area 51, there was still an on-site storage for information and artifacts that it was inconvenient to keep moving from Nevada to Colorado. Given how much information was usually needed to be accessed by the researchers here, as well, it made just as much sense.

Astrid handed off her rucksack to a helpful Air Force SF, though she kept her ToughBook just in case she would need it, and headed into the room first. Humming a little tune to herself, she set up the laptop next to the desktop computer in the back corner of the room and logged into both. On her laptop, she called up a new word processing document, as well as a new spreadsheet document, and on the desktop, she started up a search with a wide net for what they needed. That was going to take a minute, so while it was compiling data, she looked to see who was joining her.

Bryan nearly had to run to keep up with Astrid.  She definitely had a purpose in mind.  He looked around the archives and blew out a breath.  "Lots of info here.   Where would you like me?" He asked, wishing he had thought to bring his own laptop.

Astrid looked up at the younger man who had followed her here, smiling and extending a hand.

"Astrid Lofquist, SG-7. You can skip the Specialist part, Astrid is just fine. Specialist is just filing the paperwork since I retired from the Army years ago." She said pleasantly.

"Right, well, ah, I think while I search the database, if you want to see if maybe you can locate the notes from the botched 1945 experiment, as well as anything left behind by Doctor Langford. Obviously, time has yet to change, or so I would like to think, which means that we're doing what I think the orientation class called a "predestination paradox". Which means that more or less we're repeating the same motions that we're supposed to, and that the experiment in 1945 still happened, so the gate should have been recovered." Astrid took a breath, "So someone has to have left us clues to narrow down our search and goals, because no offense, the plan that they drew up upstairs is so broad a net, my father could use it to catch all the fish in Lake Vättern." Astrid concluded.

"If you need any help, let me know, especially if it's in the linguistic side...which is why I had hoped Doctor Jackson would be here and not teaching how to do a proper Bavarian accent. Plus, he knew Doctor Langford better than us. But I suspect they know more than we do..." Astrid added before blowing out a sigh.

Bryan smiled,  his blue eyes dancing.  "Airman Bryan Walker.  You can just me Bryan.  And it's a pleasure to meet you Astrid."

He listened as she explained.  Oh this sounded even more confusing than he had thought originally.   "Well languages weren't my strong suit in school so I will definitely ask for help.   Til then I'll see what I can find."

Bryan was not looking forward to this.  He stunk at research,  he would do his best though.  He headed for the file drawers and boxes thinking that would be the best place to start.   He pulled down a box and started to dig through it.

"No one said this was going to be easy. But we can get it done, I think." Astrid commented as she went back to the computers. The search results hadn't narrowed anything down, so she started with something easy, trying to narrow it to just anything left by Doctor Langford. That didn't get much better, but as they crossed the first hour, she started seeing mentions of the OSS. Checking with what was known in the database on her laptop, nothing had previously indicated the involvement of the OSS, especially since the agency hadn't been created until after the beginning of World War Two. Names started to reoccur in the documentation.

Matt Baker and Hans Brasche, but they also did not seem to exist as far as the archives were concerned. They seemed to appear and disappear just as quickly as the mentions of the OSS in the Stargate's past. And then when she tried to dive deeper into their names, she was blocked out by a request for a higher security login.

"Try looking for anything mentioning a Matt Baker or Hans Brasche. I'm going to have to break a few rules to get deeper down the rabbit hole." Astrid said as she looked to her laptop and pulled a line of USB cable from her laptop bag and plugged the two computers in together.

Hidden from view inside of a directory folder for a game was a code breaking program that Astrid and her brother had written for the hell of it while she worked for him. It had been the experience they had needed to start getting contracts in the security sector, but they were also supposed to have turned over all copies to the Swedish government. The reason had been that as part of a demonstration to get a cyberwarfare contract, they had used the program to crack into the Swedish military's servers, as well as into several NATO ones. But Astrid and her brother both kept copies of their work just in case.

She loaded it up and set about breaking more than a few laws to override the lockout into the archive files, a process that took another twenty minutes because the program also was careful not to trip the usual alert signs that security programs look for when similar programs are used. But it was also not supposed to be that fast, as she expected it to take hours to break the US DoD's codes. The problem there wasn't with the barrier she had just broken, but that the software found a backdoor that she had evidently installed, the code matched her handiwork.

The files were heavily redacted, Matt Baker's didn't even have a photo to go along with it, but it shed more light on them. Baker was an OSS agent who had been overseeing the Stargate since it was sent to the US in 1939, and Brasche...was Abwehr, German Intelligence. And he had been reporting on the Stargate ever since it arrived in Germany.

"And so the plot thickens...how interesting." Astrid said to herself in her native Swedish.

Bryan rolled his eyes with a laugh.  "That is true.  Nothing in life seems to come easy," he commented.  At least it hadn't in his.  That was something for another day though and something he wasn't going to go into.  Bonnie was the only one who really knew his true past.

"Matt Baker and Hans Brasche?" he repeated, knowing he probably butchered Hans last name.  Oops.  He would have to work on that one.  "Got it."

Bryan grabbed another box, now just searching for anything that would have either of their names in it.  There was surprisingly little though.  Just who had those two been and why so secretive?  He looked up from a thin file folder he had just grabbed out when he heard Astrid.  "What was that?" he asked.

Astrid looked up from her computer and at Walker.

"Well, a couple of things. Firstly, as I said, this is a predestination paradox. It would seem that I left myself a backdoor into the files I needed, my code breaker program was able to find it easily. Since I don't think my brother's company or the Swedish government is running IT for the Department of Defense, that's the only explanation. But Mister Baker is an OSS operative, one who is tied to the Stargate somehow. And Herr Brasche, he's German Intelligence, Abwehr. He was the one telling the Allies the Stargate was in Germany ever since it got there." Astrid explained.

"Like everyone said, the Gate should be in the United States since 1939. So it was definitely stolen. But it has to also be back in the US by 1945 for Doctor Littlefield's ill-fated attempt. So. While the how is obviously irrelevant, the question becomes why haven't they used it yet? Wouldn't the Goa'uld have already used it after the Germans secured it for them? What's the endgame here?" Astrid asked, though it was somewhat like she was asking aloud rather than asking Walker directly.

Bryan listened while trying to figure out just what Astrid was talking about.  His crystal eyes widened in disbelief.   "Wow, I didn't realize things ran so deep.  How are we going to manage to go back in time and not completely mess things up?" It seemed like things were getting more complicated by the minute.  He set the folder he was holding on the table.  "I only found a couple pages on the two men."

"Well, on the upside, it would seem we've already done this and we can't mess it up because it should all play out. But, I'm hardly the one to ask about such matters. My brother got me started on science fiction, and those god awful introduction videos by Doctor Jackson kind of are my only basis." Astrid said, standing up and heading over to look over what Bryan had found.

"Looks like a letter from Herr Brasche, and that's Major Baker's service file. Looks as though he used to be a crewman on the Achilles and joined the Army not long after, later assigned to the OSS regarding some sort of special project. Likely the Stargate, I'd say." Astrid said before picking up the letter and reading it over.

"It's to himself, instructions to assist us. There are some tidbits in here, things I assume that only he would know about himself. He's Austrian, not German, sounds like he despises the Nazis. Sounds as though we need to ensure he sees this. Very interesting. But how would we go about doing that?" Astrid mused.

Bryan groaned.  "Perfect.  Guess I shoulda watched more science fiction instead of tuning up cars," he said with a slight smile.  There was one positive that they had done this before and succeeded.  Or at least didn't mess everything up.

He was surprised though to hear the one paper he found was a letter.  He hadn't had a chance to read it, but it sounded interesting.  "We've got to get it back to him?  Oh that should be simple," he said sarcastically before sighing.  "Is there anyway we could slip that into one of our bags?  Or maybe rewrite it on the type of paper they would have used so it looks new instead of extremely old?"  Bryan really wasn't sure.  This was completely out of his comfort zone.
