I can't help but feel like a medical ethics board would have something to say here. (Disclaimer: I have never been a doctor, nurse, or other health care professional.)

Shouldn't the instruction in the chart be to notify her attending physician if there is any change in her condition? (BTW, I am assuming she got a visit from her doctor which just never made it 'on-screen' after she woke up and before she started receiving any old Tom, Dick, and CentComm as visitors. Lynn, and by extension Calliope, would seem to be standing in for 'family', so it is understandable (to me) that they'd be allowed to wait in the room for her to wake up.)

Of course the attending physician would, in turn, have all sorts of instructions about notifying CentComm -- but that's a different matter entirely. ^_^
megados 19th May 2017, 12:45 AM edit delete reply
I make the same disclaimer.

I suppose we can assume one or both of Drs. Smolens and Demark have come and gone between scenes, and have given their instructions. As for visitation, yes it is usually restricted to family. The reasons, I had always assumed, were that medical privacy would stay within the family, and that family would share similar environmental biology, such that the risks of introducing new biological concerns is reduced.

There currently is no real medical privacy to be had from CentComm, and since she is represented by a doll, the biological concerns are minimal. Lynn and Calliope would seem to pose the most risk. In these future times its possible none of that matters any more. Of course, I could be way off base again.

Whilst I see where you are coming from, this isn't set in our time. Already, we are eroding the right to confidentiality. Add one apocalypse and a couple of thousand years, things maybe a little different.
Sheela 19th May 2017, 2:15 AM edit delete reply

There's also that little bit about politics being involved, so if she off and died, Centcomm would have to make an announcement to Nova Roma, post haste - Hence it makes sense to have Centcomm on the list.

@Gilrandir the medical what now?... ;-)

More seriously, I suspect military hospitals tend to put less emphasis on this kind of thing than civilian ones?...
velvetsanity 19th May 2017, 12:27 PM edit delete reply

I think military hospitals generally consider chain of command to rate with family as far as allowing visitation, though I'm not sure on that myself, as I never had to spend any time as an inpatient when I was in.
Gilrandir 19th May 2017, 2:17 PM edit delete reply
Visitation isn't the issue, @velvetsanity. I completely agree that the C.O. In a military hospital can probably go wherever he or she wants, whenever he or she wants, for whatever reason they like, or no reason at all.

The issue is patient confidentiality. A change in Acantha's medical condition is part of her personal medical information. Her doctor gets to know that, she gets to know it. Anyone else (including the base C.O.), either Acantha (or her guardian, since she's a minor) gets to choose to tell them about it, or the Doctor shares it with them for medical reasons (not political).

Of course, that's in an ideal situation, and all sorts of real world compromises happen all the time. We don't even know if doctor-patient privilege exists under New Troy law, or to what extent CentComm is accustomed to enjoying surveillance without regard for people's privacy. She may very well be on the level of "Person Of Interest's" 'Machine', without the saving grace of being a closed system. That hasn't yet been addressed.
velvetsanity 19th May 2017, 3:37 PM edit delete reply

I was referring to the soldier/patient's chain of command, not the hospital chain of command. Yes, there are privacy concerns regarding doctor-patient confidentiality as far as sharing information. However, a soldier's chain of command (unlike a civilian employer) is required to have certain information as far as accountability (and operational status/planning) goes, so they can know, for instance, if/when the soldier will be able to return to duty and so on, which is information only commonly shared with family members in a civilian environment.

Having this information is also necessary so the soldier's chain of command can know whether to initiate medical discharge paperwork (which then gets submitted to a medical review board, which has final say over whether the soldier stays in or gets out).
Gilrandir 19th May 2017, 4:22 PM edit delete reply
A good point. And soldiers (American soldiers, at least) do waive certain rights when they take the oath and don the uniform.

But Acantha is not in CentComm's chain of command. ^_^
megados 19th May 2017, 6:11 PM edit delete reply
Even if CentComm were to remove her doll, I would expect that within 3C, the walls have ears anyway.
Gilrandir 19th May 2017, 7:54 PM edit delete reply
Hence my comment about "Person of Interest". There is no information currently available from canon (as far as I know) that CentComm doesn't have listening devices in every bedroom, private legal office, medical examination room and First Circuit confessional booth throughout the whole of New Troy. For all we know, the building codes mandate the inclusion of same in the interest of public safety. But that doesn't seem ... consistent with the tone the creatrices are attempting to set for New Troy.

If CentComm does respect a personal right to privacy and certain forms of privileged communication, then there won't be any listening devices or spy-eyes installed in Acantha's hospital room without her knowledge and consent (or a wiretap warrant from competent legal authority). But often rules are things we want enforced on people we don't like to make things easier for people we like. Unlike laws, which allow us to treat everybody as though we dislike them. ^_^
megados 19th May 2017, 8:11 PM edit delete reply
That's why I specified 3C. Unlike The Machine, which has everyone under surveillance, I expect that most of New Troy enjoys a reasonable balance between security and privacy. Within 3C, however, a high security environment exists in which surveillance devices are already present everywhere. They wouldn't have been added pending Acantha's arrival; they would have had to remove them prior to setting up their hasty surgery bay.

Acantha isn't a typical patient, either. The heiress apparent of a hostile city-state which had kidnapped a high profile citizen of New Troy is getting high end medical care, and is being treated quite well. I can well imagine getting her care set up was a higher priority than making sure to remove surveillance devices. At this point it is up to Acantha to request privacy if desired, and up to CentComm whether to grant it.
antrik 19th May 2017, 9:03 PM edit delete reply
Since you keep bringing this up: I think you might have misread that remark. My interpretation is that the med bay was already there; but since it's used only for special occasions, they don't have all the medical staff on site, which is what made the setup of the specific procedure a bit hasty.
megados 19th May 2017, 9:36 PM edit delete reply
It is entirely possible that I misunderstood exactly what was or was not already present in the medical bay. That does not really change my impression of the area's surveillance level. Anywhere within the confines of the 3C complex is a high security area.
Tokyo Rose 20th May 2017, 1:32 AM edit delete reply

Yes, the attending physician will be notified. I didn't put anything like that into the dialogue because it falls into the realm of Bloody Obvious. In this highly politically touchy situation, however, Cent-Comm has instructed that she, also, be notified.

That, in and of itself, answers the question of whether or not the patient's room is under constant surveillance. Cent-Comm wouldn't bother saying "alert me if something changes" if she's watching.
Sheela 20th May 2017, 4:42 AM edit delete reply

Besides, it costs her less processing power to just have someone call her.
Ebonbolt 20th May 2017, 6:05 AM edit delete reply

Especially since "someone" (namely our lovely nurse) is already monitoring her pretty constantly. Saves processing to have an expert do what they're already doing & just add a notification to the list.
Speaking of saving processing, I'd think that notifying the attending physician would be, not just obvious, but SOP (thus not needing extra notes to that effect). Kinda like saying "don't let her die" on the charts...
It's mainly the political folk that need to be listed for notification (which happens AFTER the crash cart & doctor, of course).

". . . That, in and of itself, answers the question of whether or not the patient's room is under constant surveillance. Cent-Comm wouldn't bother saying "alert me if something changes" if she's watching"

Yep, obvious.
antrik 20th May 2017, 10:06 AM edit delete reply
Actually, I don't think the surveillance thing is that obvious: She might be watching the room, but that doesn't mean she understands the medical condition of the patient...
megados 20th May 2017, 10:36 AM edit delete reply
Maybe it kinda does. If she is watching the room, and something changes, it might likely be accompanied by a flurry of increased activity.

*edit:

As an exercise in bad taste, I submit the following:

CentComm: "Florence, why have Drs. Smolens, and Demark run into the room?"

Florence: "Acantha Livius has passed."

CentComm: "Why was I not notified?"

Florence: "We were just about to do that."

CentComm: "I see. Well, inform me of any further changes."

Florence: "Of course, ma'am."

.....

.....

Florence: "Ma'am?"

CentComm: "Yes Florence, what is it?"

Florence: "Regarding Ms. Livius' condition . . . "

CentComm: "Yes?"

Florence: "It has changed."

Centcomm: "Changed? How so?"

Florence: "It has gone from 'merely dead' to 'really most sincerely dead'."

Centcomm: "I see. Thank you Florence."

CentComm having instructions on the chart to be notified of status changes could be there so that people think she obviously doesn't have the bugs she has all over the room. Bugs that wouldn't be detected by any bug sniffers, because they're built into the network ports and the power lines and anything else that's naturally going to be producing a signal that could be subtly modulated to send a clandestine signal without anyone suspecting.

Dialogue We'll Never See:
"Noctis ... you're under arrest! The charge is: having a built-in inhibitor. That's illegal here in New Troy!" ^_^
megados 19th May 2017, 12:49 AM edit delete reply
It is a good thing it is a charge we won't see, as Noctis was not the one who put the inhibitor there. Would it not be more correct to arrest whoever built her body?
Gilrandir 19th May 2017, 3:38 AM edit delete reply
Depends on how the law is written. ^_^ Even if the law were written as badly as I propose (for comic effect), Noctis still is being treated as if she had diplomatic immunity, so it is no big deal right now. But it does make me wonder about the actual text of the statute, just like I ponder the literal text of the "They Shall Not Pass" ordnance. (And wondering how Dolly is going to deal with that. I'm still thinking custom T-shirts. ^_^)
mjkj 19th May 2017, 1:18 AM edit delete reply

Hmm, I would rather expect them dragging her off for surgery to have that inhibitor removed...
Pirtnac 19th May 2017, 1:36 AM edit delete reply
I'd be willing to bet that "deny anyone attempting to remove inhibitor the ability to do so" is one of the inhibitor's directives. Apparently able to be bypassed by the ruling member of the Livius family, of course. Everyone is probably hushing up about it, or we've just guessed what Monday's comic is going to be.
Timotheus 19th May 2017, 3:41 AM edit delete reply

We have seen, graphically, to what extremes a Cassian would have to go to overcome her inhibitor. I believe the same degree of effort would be required to allow it to be disabled without the proper access codes.
antrik 19th May 2017, 7:31 AM edit delete reply
@Pirtnac they could always hire a cyberkinetic to hold Noctis down while they forcefully disable the inhibitor... ;-)
Morituri 19th May 2017, 1:41 AM edit delete reply
Noctis hasn't been offleash. EVER.

We may think we know how she'd respond. But we don't. We do know that she's equipped and trained to do very bad things if she responds badly.

Removing her inhibitor might be like freeing a slave, but it might also be like dropping a bomb.
Gilrandir 19th May 2017, 3:42 AM edit delete reply
I believe the creatrices have implied that the inhibitor is an integral part of the overall Cassian architecture -- no more susceptible to removal than a brain transplant. Of course, with her consent, one supposes they could upload Noctis to a nice new chassis, but I'm guessing that isn't in the cards. ^_^
antrik 19th May 2017, 7:35 AM edit delete reply
Not sure why you think so. Everything we have seen so far seems to suggest the Cassian inhibitors work just the same as other ones, by forcefully overriding the M.A.C.C.S. -- so built-in or not, I don't see a reason why they can't be just disabled/destroyed/removed.
megados 19th May 2017, 9:17 AM edit delete reply
I don't remember which page, but in the comments, there was discussion of removing internal inhibitors, and we were told that they could not be physically removed, as they were physically tied to the MACCS. The only means of doing away with it was to upload the individual to a new body.

The Cassians in New Rome enjoy the greatest freedom of any androids there, but they, too, are required to have inhibitors. I assume that if Noctis were to somehow get rid of her inhibitor, she would just have to get another upon returning to New Rome, until or unless the law is changed. Further, I don't know if she would still be allowed to be a Cassian, let alone Princeps with her inhibitor removed. (Again barring some change in the laws)
Sheela 19th May 2017, 12:09 PM edit delete reply

since the build in inhibitor is a literal part of the M.A.C.C.S., and the M.A.C.C.S. is a literal part of the brainstem-to-spine connection - It would kill her to have it removed.

Kali's sacrifice has shown that they *can* be reprogrammed or disabled, at the very least when specific conditions are met...
Gilrandir 19th May 2017, 2:21 PM edit delete reply
Yes, but not removed. Altered. Presumably even altered in such a way that they become a 'pass-through', with no behavior actually being inhibited -- in the same way you could have an encryption subroutine that takes in plaintext and returns unaltered plaintext. But, if you deleted the subroutine without making changes elsewhere in the program, the program would no longer compile without error and function would cease.
velvetsanity 19th May 2017, 3:48 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, pretty much what I was pointing out.
Sheela 19th May 2017, 4:09 PM edit delete reply

I don't think Kali's inhibitor was disabled, it just had different parameters after Decimus hurt Acantha.

The inhibitor was still in perfectly good condition.
megados 19th May 2017, 5:41 PM edit delete reply
The way I understood it, Libertatum was a code subroutine that basically disabled the inhibitor when the condition (Decimus inflicts life threatening injuries to Acantha), was met, allowing Kali free will to make her own decision as to what to do. It was reprogrammed to do that, "In case Decimus ever crosses the line" as @velvetsanity mentioned.

Yes, the inhibitor was still there, but inactive. Good hardware, but switched off.
Sheela 19th May 2017, 9:33 PM edit delete reply

I don't even think they turned it off, if that's even possible.

The parameter that "inhibitor can take control" was just switched to "inhibitor can NOT take control" - That's really was all that was needed for Kali to be in control again.
megados 19th May 2017, 9:44 PM edit delete reply
Turning it off, or setting it to: "Can not take control or punish." would yield essentially the same result.

Either would be the same thing - it activates no output. I don't know if it could be turned off, but I guess it wouldn't have to be to accomplish the same goal.
Tokyo Rose 20th May 2017, 1:38 AM edit delete reply

No, nobody's going to arrest Noctis for her built-in inhibitor. (Nor could her builders be arrested for putting one in, unless those persons were to come to New Troy--where such inhibitors are illegal--and build an android chassis with the prohibited tech included.) As noted, it's physically built-in and can't be removed even with incredibly invasive surgery; altering its parameters could be done, but doing so legally would require her consent, which she would not give. She also would not give her consent to being transferred to a new body. Either of those last two situations would render her unable to return to New Rome, so it's absolutely not going to happen.
Sheela 20th May 2017, 4:44 AM edit delete reply

Unless the laws were changed back in New Rome.
But I don't think Noctis is holding her breath on that one.

Not that she breathes to begin with, except for aestethics, so the meatbags don't get weirded out.
antrik 20th May 2017, 9:11 AM edit delete reply
Does she, though?

I've actually been thinking about this recently. I can well imagine Troy-made androids to breathe "cosmetically" (and possibly also functionally, for those with more biologicals?) -- but it doesn't seem like something Cassians would do...
megados 20th May 2017, 9:26 AM edit delete reply
I never gave that a lot of thought. Androids could breathe for a number of reasons, including aesthetics, heat dissipation, or requirement of a gas or gasses. Just as easily, it may not be needed at all.

Meatbags getting wierded out would be low on a Cassian's list of reasons to breathe, I would think. ;)
antrik 20th May 2017, 10:09 AM edit delete reply
I don't think non-biological androids have any kind of metabolism; so gasses do not seem likely... But heat dissipation is a very good point I haven't considered.
velvetsanity 20th May 2017, 2:05 PM edit delete reply

Breathing does function to an extent as heat dissipation even in humans, though not as much as in our furry friends, since sweating does the majority of it for us.
Sheela 21st May 2017, 5:49 AM edit delete reply

Sweating is actually a major evolutionary milestone for humans, as it allows them extended physical excercise in very hot climates - Which in turn allows them to keep up with cattle herds, and/or run a predator into the ground!

Sure the Cheetah is faster the forst 100 yards, after that it may be a dead heat for the next 100 yards, and after THAT, the poor cheetah is buggered, and the humans are just getting started.

Humans are scary in that regard.

What @Tokyo Rose posted, says a few things about Noctis. First, it tells us that without question, she wants to, and intends to return to New Rome. Second, she wants to, and intends to resume her role as Princeps. Third, she sincerely trusts Acantha to hold the reins, as it were, such that she will be able to perform her duties without a lot of asshologen fueled gefuktitude. She can finally return to being a proper Cassian, and she is probably all kinds of hopeful right now.

With the amount of parallel multitasking that Centcomm can do, I'm not sure if "frustration" and "annoyance" is something she even considers useful variables.

She'll just run a few more scenarios until she finds a useful outcome.
Gilrandir 20th May 2017, 10:55 AM edit delete reply
I think CentComm has a quite appropriate referent for "frustration". Frustration, after all, is the condition of wanting something (or, in an extreme case, needing something) but being unable to satisfy that want. For all her disproportionate powers and capabilities, we have seen several things that CentComm wanted but which wants she could not immediately gratify. (For example, she wants LunaCom to stop reminding her that they are not responsible for the content of messages they carry. ^_^)
Ebonbolt 20th May 2017, 6:22 AM edit delete reply

She's very strict with some, much less so with others. I'd say she's more goal-driven than rule-driven. Given that the rules are there to help achieve the ultimate goal (protect the city & its people), she allows for limited rule-bending/-breaking if it furthers the task at hand, mostly by persons she trusts. Casual disregard for rules she shuts down in a heartbeat.
antrik 20th May 2017, 10:01 AM edit delete reply
That is a good analysis, and very likely to be exactly how she deals with it...

However, that doesn't answer the question whether she *feels* anything about it. We still don't really know what kind of feelings she does or doesn't have. As I pointed out an an earlier discussion, I believe she must have some kind of core directives, such as "serving humanity", or something along these lines -- an inherent motivation, kinda like a human instinct. What is not clear is whether she just follows that motivation impassionate, without really knowing why; or whether it's more like a human desire, where she feels some kind of gratification/discomfort depending on how well she is achieving it.

The behaviour she shows in "Cold Terror...." suggests that the major threat to her objectives is actually causing her discomfort -- like a human fear -- rather than just being a variable considered dispassionately...

Now I'm not sure whether anyone would think it a good idea to endow a military machine with such notions... But then again, I think she wasn't meant to become aware either -- so I guess her creators didn't quite understand what they were doing...

I am not sure, but I think you may be getting your dolls confused.

Did anyone watch season 3 episode 1 of "12 Monkeys"? It's available on Syfy On Demand, at least where I live. If you watch it, pay attention to the servant named Arianna, and watch for a freaky similarity to Data Chasers' Arianna.
