The Transcranial Microcontroller is only a less complicated version of the Transcranial Microprocessors we capsuleers have implanted in us. Anyone with a cybernetic arm or eyeball also has an implanted Transcranial Microcontroller.
Our Microprocessor controls the necom, the neural jacks that connect us to the hydrostatic capsule, any attribute implants we have and manages our SoCT skill injections.
The Transcranial Microcontroller can be similarly useful to an implanted subject and the augmented reality or ‘euphoric state’ induced by Ishukone in an individual is not dissimilar from the methods used to create simulated environments like the FTL chat channel “The Summit.”
Any caplsuleer with a single skill rank in cybernetics should be more than capable of safely removing a Transcranial Microcontroller.
Additionally a rank or two in electronics and hacking should allow you to remove the undesired features and install a firewall to prevent unwanted future tampering if you choose to leave it implanted.
The implanted individual is then safe from ‘mindcontrol’ and has rudimentary abilities to mentally connect with and control electronic devices.
There aren’t many high-level Caldari executives that don’t have a TCCM implanted due to it’s abilities.
Amarrian holders are morons for attempting to use the TCCM for enslavement. Any escaped slaves become a thousand fold more effective soldiers in the minmatar rebellion than they otherwise would been.
The spirit of Otro Gariushi must still be laughing at them.
