All stations red alert! This is not a drill

2015-11-18 General
Your mission Number 6, should you decide to accept it, is to decrypt the information hidden in the remaining data fragments from the viral attack that corrupted our crafting recipes. As always, should you or any of your force be caught or killed, the HQ will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This message will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Number 6.

Almost there... Iocaste/O tells me the encrypted message is "Viral infection in progress. Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.".

So, someone has seen the Star Wars movies in the days of the Stellar Overload era.

Is it a trap from the attacker, or someone who really needs to be saved? Who knows...

That is what you receive when you take that binary to characters... It roughly translates to:

"Viral infection in P206 reSsh...? Help me, OB0wnKno8i. You're my only hope."

Also, the OB0wnKn08i looks suspiciously like Obi Wan Kenobi... But that's just me!

Ob0 = Obi
wn = Wan
Kn0bi = Kenobi

"Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope." That's a direct quote from Princess Leah from Star Wars in, A New Hope. Leah talks about delivering the R2 unit to her father which contains vital information for the survival of the rebellion. If the above report by the devs states that we should decrypt the information hidden, are we a character that resembles Leah's father? Then was the message of "Help me Obi Wan Kenobi..." directed towards us, and to someone else? Was this message successfully delivered to us then?

I'm confused...
