Comenzar looks over the box for a few minutes. Wondering to himself it if might be trapped in some fashion. After deciding that creating a trap in this environment would be incredibly difficult he inserts the key and opens the box ready to review its contents.

The box was one of the small ones, hardly large enough to hold a codex of any length. Once the box was withdrawn from it's secure housing and placed upon the room's central lectern, the last of the seals detached, and the lid lifted off with remarkable ease. Inside the box was three items. A ring with some kind of seal on it and a pocket publication of Mefonte's Orthodoxy both resting on a large protective sleave. Inside the sleave was a large and carefully folded slip of very thick paper that displayed what appeared to be a stylistic map of a system and folded parchment that Comenzar was able to recognize a warp chart.

Comenzar collects the items placing them in a secure location before reassembling the box and returning it to its proper location. "We will have these items reviewed when we return to the ship. For now lets make our exit." Comenzar says as he moves out of the vault.

Comenzar makes his escape suffering little more under the barrage of platitudes and information that is clearly intended to cement his confidence in the bank and with it, some hope of an investment of funds that the bank could make use of. WIth great politeness, but no apparent success, the bank officer leaves the Rogue Trader at the door and returns to his usual day.

The collected dynasty personnel make it back to the shuttle without incident, and within the hour is back onboard the Usery's Reckoning.. With their full recorses now available to them, the explorers can now make a more complete examination of the items recovered.

Immediately upon their return Comezar briefs the captain and has him assign the artifacts to the proper personnel for examination. He also orders a briefing be provided on the state of the ship including the progress with offloading and reloading the new cargo.

Criador had nodded at the order from the rogue trader, and had taken up a guard position by the door of the limo, standing as an honour guard with his omnissian axe as Comenzar went inside. Though he did not carry it openly while standing guard, the bolter carbine would have been laid over the seat well within reach should it be needed.

Though he stood silent and still as a statue besides the limousine, the only movement being that of his robe in the morning wind, his gaze went over the facade of the building. Looking with a tactician's eye he tried to judge the defensive value of the building.

Back on board the ship he suggested handing over the warp chart to the navigator as "Those with the ability to handle such information as best suited to receive it."

At Lord Comezar's request, the Navagator's assistant descended from the tower and retrieved the warp charts. She gave them a quick glance over before providing the Rogue Trader her assurances that the Navagator's would give them careful attention and have a report by the end of the next day. The Ship Master, who was more familiar with the skills of the crew, had the copy of Mefonte's Orthodoxy sent to Ship's Bishop, and the ring sent to the master herald, whom he judged to have the best chance of recognizing the symbol on it. Both returned word that they would study it immediately, and report back by the end of the next day.

This left only the sytalized map, which the Ship Master was unable to find value in, and thus knew not who to direct it to.

Criador looked over the paper as the shipmaster returned it to the rogue trader and him, having moved to the ships librarum to be amongst those trying to search for more information on the objects. As he smoothed it out on a lectern the thickness became apparent, as did other clues to it's true origin.
'Of course.. this must be Datapaper.' he said aloud after a while, turning it around and looking closer, trying to discern the runes to controll the showing of images. 'Doesn't seem to have it's control runes. possibly the Enginseer Prime and myself could fashion those."
As he turned it around again something caught his eye, and he took a good look at the constellations in the background. "My lord Commenzar, perhaps we should be more cautious in accessing the information stored on this. These stars form constellations as they would be seen from holy Mars or blessed Terra, symbols of warding against corruption." He said, asking for an aide to check if the librarum had a book on warding symbols to make sure of them.

"We must know what is on that datapaper before we arrive at the system. Proceed with your attempts to fashion the control rune. Report back to me once you have an update."

"You have come to seek my wisdom in a vexing problem." Magos Doyen stated as Criador entered his sanctum. Joints in the Enginseer's mechandendrites creaked with uncommon use as they withdrew from their sockets upon the Throne of Thought and coiled themselves in patient waiting for their next use. The ancient priest lifted himself up from the chair and descended the dais to greet the young master of ordinance, leaning heavily on his cane as he did so, bowed deep with the heavy weight of his knowledge.

"Your noosphere shows that this is no normal cogitation. Speak, initiate."

Near in time, but far in place, Comezar is approached by the now familiar liaison of the Navigator. "My Master has looked these over, and although there is more to be read, he is confident that they are a clear mapping of a nearby warp route."

Criador bowed his head, making the sign of the cogwheel in greeting.
"Magos, the rogue trader has recovered a piece of datapaper from the surface of this planet. but it is missing the control runes. Given that thus far my own studies have been of a more military direction, and the piece may contain sensitive information. It is further marked with signs warding against corruption, so I thought it best to consult with you before any lesser member of our order. "

"A fascinating puzzle." The magos replied, "You were wise to consult me first - there are both many promises and many dangers that can be found among any preserved knowledge. It is best if it is not introduced to a mind unready. Do you have the artifact with you? If so, follow me to my study."

Continuing past Criador, the elder Mechanicus priest selected a thick steel door along the wall that was emblazoned with the cog mechanicum and guarded by pair of heavy combat servitors, dust on the treads that replace their legs betraying that they have not moved in at least several months.

The explorator followed the magos, looking around with a supressed but keen interest at a shrine to the omnissiah he had not seen before, he held close to his chest the box carrying the datapaper they had recovered.
