You take Fuse aside, and ask him what he thinks about the situation of the Proto-Juries.

"They seem to have it together," he says. "I mean, as much three glitchy androids in a frozen bunker in parts unknown can have it together."

You tell Fuse that you want to figure out where the mystery crate is located. While something was hindering your phone's GPS, you know that Mom's red is able to tell where its various selves are in relation to each other--hauling the Baby Red around was what helped clue you into the Mars bunker being on... well, Mars. Thus, your current plan is to see if you can get another Baby Red, and use it to triangulate the position of the new weird door.

You also want to start working on the Proto-Juries' long term list, maybe figuring out what's most easily acquirable, and what would be important for building another Proto-Jury versus what's needed for general, long term maintenance.

"I can work on the list," Fuse says, "since I've probably spent the most time staring at it. I'll talk it over with the Juries, see if I can get it all sorted out. If anything goes down with that crate, hit me up."

You check in on the others. Michelle, Zene, and Crease have gone out to get movies; you ask Dr. Finch or Caius to re-sort the door situation so you can return to Bunker A. Dr. Finch and Caius return to a spirited argument about the quality of various horror films, and you approach Mom's red.

You ask about briefly borrowing another Baby Red, just long enough to figure out where something is located.

"My presence here is, to put it succinctly, the bare minimum for function," replies the mouth on the wall. "I can certainly grant you another cognizant sample of my being, but to do so from this place may take some time. I can do it much more promptly from where the rest of me is housed. It is your decision, in either choice."

You ask if it would be possible to get it any smaller this time. Like... a Baby Baby Red.

"If I shaped the sample any smaller, it would not be of much use, unfortunately. Even at its previous size, I'm sure you noticed it was a simple thing."

On one hand, I'm kind of curious what sort of situation would crop up at the house. On the other hand, it was supposed to be a slow day.
... I say let's check it out unless if we have anything better to do.

I think we should maybe send a raven to check on our house to see if it'd maybe be safe to go get another baby red. if it's not safe, then maybe see if there are any parts the proto-juries need that we can safely get today

I say, let's send a raven to look at our house, and in the spirit of this being a slow day, prepare snacks for movies. Maybe even lunch.

We dont need a cognizant form, but a form that can be tracked by Mom Red. We can get the information when we get back to Mom Red. With her current length Mom Red should have some triangulation ability.

Can Mom Red operate a computer if we stuck her with a usb cable?

I could totally get onboard with making movie snacks. We could shoot Michelle a quick question to see if she's getting just movies or movies plus snacks.

Also wait for an opportune time to interrupt Caius and Dr. Finch's discussion and ask about Jury-Jury.

I would advise against returning home. Even if the house is not currently boobytrapped, it could still be watched with an ambush lying in wait like with the fakes.

Let’s watch movies and get Mom’s Red to make another baby at the bunker. It’s our off day, we can be a little leisurely if we want.
