Discover what terrorist group is responsible for numerous
explosions which they trigger by using a communication DOD satellite.
2) Invasion of reported location
3) Detain Greg Hillinger, a young mathematical genius, who wrote his
doctoral dissertation on nonlinear principal components, in order to
break the code used to take over the DOD satellite.
4) Destroy site of unnamed group in South Africa, bring back personnel and
Initial reported location was a trap. Code that Birkoff broke was
and ‘outer shell." Multiple operatives lost.
2) Virus implanted by Hillinger invaded all Section One programs.
3) Resulting in target beacon moving at 3 x's the speed of sound.
4) Hillinger's disruptive and independent behavior, which resulted in his
permanent detainment by Section One.
Adversaries: Initially unknown. Reported by Operations to be "just another insane group of misfits empowered by technology."
Mission End Game:
Code broken by Hillinger. Compound of unnamed group destroyed. Hostiles brought back to Section One for interrogation. Hardware being reworked. Hillinger permanently detained by Section One - 92% chance of successful integration
It is apparent from surveillance that Nikita was affected by the youth of Hillinger. However, she performed more than competently except when she tried to protect him.
It was obvious from surveillance tapes that Nikita saw young Greg as an innocent and tried to protect him even though he had seen entirely too much of the Section One compound. Nikita was also observed to be contemptuous to Madeline after Hillinger was taken. The relationship with Madeline is trying at best.
Michael's performance was flawless.
and Nikita's Bond:
There was very little interaction between Michael and Nikita on this mission. Both were very focused during the pickup of Hillinger.
Two questions: (1) what is the "it" Michael is talking about and (2) what was Nikita protecting herself from?
(1) Continue to watch Nikita very closely as suggested by Madeline.
Continue surveillance on Michael and Nikita. Nikita is becoming
of an expert at hiding some of her feelings. Lack of opportunity is
more likely the reason that these two do not interact more.
Surveillance capabilities even at Section One do not capture every
nuance of their by-play.
