We *could* have them, if anyone is willing to write them, what would you say? I am aware that interrogations are not as easy to pull off as other entries.

But it would be fun to have some written messages... :) Like logs. You know: Interrogation blabla the alien claimed that... and we found evidence... But: will only work after the "aline origins" are researched, and then it might be too late... :(

---Edit---
Oh I got an idea! Why not make sth like: the alien demanded material from recovered logs and showed us some entrys we unfortunatly were not able to decrypt until now... :) Then we can include some alien language texts... :)

Of course I have gone mad with power! It would be completely ridiculous to go mad without power!
And no, this is not a quote from the Simpson's movie, I want it on paper, that I actually wrote that quite some time before the movie came out.

Too complicated, I'm thinking of something like the Alien Debriefing in my Paradigm Shift text, or something like it, maybe not the debriefing itself, but rather a report of it. "The Alien has told us blah blah blah"

Awww. :( But then again, you might be right with this beeing too complicated. Might be a good idea to invest efforts in more pressing things...

we could easily be able to fill up the model view frame with a scrollable image with the diagrams that the alien put out (Our base is at the Great Red Planet, Earthlings. The Overmind will halt you in your attempts to size it, you will not be able to get near enough to do harm to the Master). It probebly isn't going to get used anyway.

Some people say that dreams are a portal to the subconscious. If that is so, I am a very disturbed person.

Hehe, you can have fun as a family translating CTs into alien language! :) This is perfect for rainy afternoons! :)

Isn't this obsolete with our current backstory and tech-tree, or are we going to complete it after all X-Net entries as easter egg or supplementary material?

No, interrogation CTs are a nice extra feature, just to give the game a bit more depth. These should be used as add ons for the Alien research CTs. I think Icebot wanted to try working on these as first assignment. But you're right those are lowest priority.

What do we mean by alien interrogation texts? If you mean the research of a live alien, then we already have those texts. (Autopsy and interrogation). ;)
