The comm system is done!  You can now interact fully with the Mechans.  If you have a human crew member, they will ask you questions to verify that you are Noah 9.  If you answer 5 of them correctly with no mistakes, you will unlock the data banks and then can ask them questions until they get bored of you and terminate communications.  There’s no combat yet, so answering their questions wrong will just make them not like you anymore.

Check out the video.  Next up, Spemin!
