And just like the other list, this one has all the dialogue recorded by Sir Richard Attenborough as Hammond for Trespasser:

Quote:
Introduction

This text will play over the game's graphical opening sequence. It begins dispassionately, like a history lecture, but the final phrase has a sudden vehemence – something bitter from Hammond's past.

[Anne: From the writings of John Hammond, founder and chief executive of the InGen Corporation.]

HAMMOND001
Code:
By 1989, International Genetic Technologies had succeeded in their design, to genetically recreate the dinosaurs. It was an unprecedented accomplishment, the pinnacle of 20th-century science, a work to rank with the work of Galileo, or Einstein

But it was not all so easy or so simple as it appeared.  One seldom hears the true history of such events - what happened at the place where the world changed. How it began, what were the reasons, what was the cost.


Mystery

These passages should be spoken with some seriousness – Hammond is introducing a story of importance – in a sense, he is giving testimony, speaking for the record.

HAMMOND002
Code:
My name is John Parker Hammond.  I was born on March 14, 1928.



HAMMOND003
Code:
What follows is a record of certain events in which I took part, between the years 1980 and 1997, on an island I will call Site B.


HAMMOND004
Code:
Site B was not to be a theme park, but a research station.  This was where we did the real work.


Almost like a fragment of ghostly voice, somewhere on the beach

HAMMOND005
Code:
…the greatest discovery of the 20th century…


HAMMOND006
Code:
A Nobel Prize, or a financial empire awaits somewhere in a darkened room, in a dirty derelict building somewhere in the Pacific.


HAMMOND007
Code:
A forest this wild, this unknown, has not been seen by any human since the great hunters of the early Pliocene.


HAMMOND008
Code:
I can picture them moving cautiously through the dusty rooms in bulky biohazard gear, clutching rifles, poring over our records, reading our files.



HAMMOND009
Code:
The mysterious John Hammond - shady investor, multimillionaire, jovial mad scientist.




As she reaches the big monorail gate.

HAMMOND010
Code:
The technology, the real trick of it, is still in there.  In a darkened room, in an empty building with a dirty floor, it waits.  The flashpoint, the origin of Jurassic park.



HAMMOND011
Code:
The main laboratory and administrative buildings.  This was where we made our discovery, where the real magic trick happened.  When they come to dig up our secrets, they will come here.




The story of InGen

This set of lines lays out, in fragments, the history of InGen, and needs a brisk delivery, a sense of Hammond's excitement and pride at his accomplishments.


HAMMOND012
Code:
An idea brought me awake one morning in New York. I almost didn't write it down



HAMMOND013
Code:
Sunlight angled down through the dusty air of Norman's office.  I leaned against a solid oak table as I outlined my plans for International Genetic Technologies.



HAMMOND014
Code:
It was the flowering of an ambition born 50 years ago – 50 years of struggle come to this.



HAMMOND015
Code:
Isla Sorna.  Costa Rica lay to the east, a quiet neighbor.  To the west, open water and the shipping lanes of the Pacific.


HAMMOND016
Code:
The southern beach looked out over trackless ocean.  Down past Peru, all the way to Antarctica.


HAMMOND017
Code:
A few weeks after we first landed, we went to the summit to put up a crude satellite link.


HAMMOND018
Code:
We went up by helicopter.  Young technicians scrambled to set up the dish as the wind howled.  High-speed uplink…state of the art.


HAMMOND019
Code:
If we succeeded, the InGen technology would be historic.  We were planning to conquer time's power over life, its power to extinguish and erase.  It would change all of our lives, as profoundly, as irrevocably as the atomic bomb.



HAMMOND020
Code:
1982.  Robert Muldoon I already knew.  Dennis Nedry I found in Cambridge – despite his idiosyncracies, he was years ahead of his competition.


In control room, dealing with Nedry's sabotaged computer

HAMMOND021
Code:
Dennis fancied himself quite the hacker.  He had his own locks for his door.  His office decorations were quite outside company regulations


Henry Wu's house

HAMMOND022
Code:
Henry Wu was an only child, from Ohio.  A prodigy, he gained early attention for his undergraduate thesis at MIT.


HAMMOND023
Code:
3 Cray X-MP's moved more data, faster, than any computer center in the Americas.


HAMMOND024
Code:
In 11 months, Site B became the most powerful genetics facility in the world.


HAMMOND025
Code:
In a quiet, locked room, the extinction of species, the history of life on earth is being methodically reversed.





HAMMOND026
Code:
The first task was genetic recovery — acquiring Jurassic or Cretaceous amber, extracting preserved DNA, and reassembling the completed sequences.  "Bringing it up the well," we called it.



At ruined plantation house gate
Line 027, Tape 01-08
HAMMOND027
Code:
I spared no expense, permitted no failures.




HAMMOND028
Code:
By 1985 we held 13 new patents.



HAMMOND029
Code:
I began to have my first inkling of the seriousness of our work – how deep the well was.  This was life from 65 or 100 million years before mankind.



HAMMOND030
Code:
November 1985.  Test fertilization of an artificial ovum.  My hands shook as I held the tiny eye dropper.  One drop, two drops.  There!  The genie was out of the bottle.



HAMMOND031
Code:
The raptor took shape inside its egg.  I watched it on the ultrasound monitor.  It looked like a ghost, or a puff of smoke.




Near Town Wall
HAMMOND032
Code:
We released the first raptor on April 22, 1986.  It wandered back and forth near the wall for four minutes and twenty-two seconds, before hearing a noise which drew it further off into the brush.



HAMMOND033
Code:
In the jungle, the forest, and the mountain three raptor tribes staked out territory.  Albertosaurs and the seven T-rexes chose their dominions.  Uneasy borders drawn around forests, ridges, and ponds.


HAMMOND034
Code:
Not all the original species survived.  In the end, only a few adjusted to the new world.  These became dominant.


HAMMOND035
Code:
A third tribe of raptors took the mountain for their territory.  A leaner, tougher breed, quick, living on birds and tiny lizards.


On picking up a proximity detector
HAMMOND036
Code:
We tagged the most dangerous animals with radio collars that transmitted a warning signal.   Workmen carried little boxes that played a tone when a tagged animal came near…at which point the workers would panic and flee in terror.




HAMMOND037
Code:
By 1987, the first of them had reached full size.  The ecosystem of another era began to reassert itself.


At pond
HAMMOND038
Code:
The raptor padded in towards sundown.  It drank nervously, careful of the dangers of the Jurassic waterhole.



At sewer pipe
HAMMOND039
Code:
Several hours later, we discovered that it had come in through the sewage pipes.



Sighting of scarred, huge T-rex
HAMMOND040
Code:
For four months we had monitored it while it preyed on herds in the southern forest. We never knew why it grew so large.  In the summer of 1988 it began moving north.




HAMMOND041
Code:
1988.  Workers from the mainland were pouring concrete supports, for a rail system running north to the settlement.


Ruins at beach, once Anne recognizes them.

HAMMOND042
Code:
May, 1989.  We began laying foundations on the south beach for a hotel for visiting scientists and businessmen.  A year hence, I thought, the island would be quite famous.


Hallway
HAMMOND043
Code:
Bankruptcy!  I leaned against the wall.  My whole body shook.


Broken InGen mug
HAMMOND044
Code:
I dropped the mug.  It shattered.  I let it lie there.  We would be leaving soon anyway.


HAMMOND045
Code:
When it became known that I was bankrupt, workers simply dropped their tools and walked away.


HAMMOND046
B
Code:
uildings were stripped of anything valuable.

HAMMOND047
Code:
We sealed off the town, save for a few crucial gates — southward to the lowlands, eastward to the power plant and laboratory.







Near star map
HAMMOND048
Code:
Before we left, we sealed the Eastern Gate for the last time.  Gazing from my study window, I hit on a simple mnemonic for the passcode.



Ripped-out control box on west side of gateway.
HAMMOND049
Code:
As we left we vandalized our own locking mechanisms.  InGen tolerates no trespassers.


2nd Dock
HAMMOND050
Code:
Technicians and workmen crowded the docks, fearing they might be left behind when the security ring collapsed. Armed guards stood watch.


On pier
HAMMOND051
Code:
Two German technicians were accused of conspiring to walk out with crucial research materials.



Briefcase with tools and a gun, found behind rusted hidden panel
HAMMOND052
Code:
They had planned to breach the main computer vault and remove some of the data stored there.  No proof was ever found.



HAMMOND053
Code:
October, 1996.  The InGen corporation is taken out of my hands, by a vote of the board of directors.  My nephew dispatches his team.


HAMMOND054
Code:
The hunters landed on May 13, 1997, deep in the island's southwest. Most of them had worked at my African parks for years.  They never stood a chance.


Near hunter camp
HAMMOND055
Code:
The InGen hunting party carried the passcodes for our perimeter fences.


At hunter camp — signs of chaos
HAMMOND056
Code:
The hunters scattered, their prearranged hunting routes forgotten.  Only a third of their number appeared at the rendezvous.



Hushed, quick moments of intense sensory detail

These passages are spoken quietly and quickly, but somewhat dispassionately – narrating an intense sensory memory as it comes.


HAMMOND057
Code:
In May the rains began.  The smell of the jungle was everywhere.



Rusting metal rails and wood piled by the side of the tracks
HAMMOND058
Code:
As I journeyed south along the coast, the air grew moist and heavy.  Metal and concrete lay rotting in the sun and rain.



HAMMOND059
Code:
1981.  I stumbled out of the helicopter, already beginning to sweat, and looked around at the lush forest, the wet leaves.



Edge of cliff
HAMMOND060
Code:
I stood on the lip of the cliff, the wind blowing my hair.  It might have been a morning in the early Jurassic.


HAMMOND061
Code:
The jungle canopy hung over us.  There was an utter silence.  Far away I could hear a jeep engine idling.



First sight of a series of giant pillars in the jungle

HAMMOND062
Code:
In the winter we began building the supports for an elevated transit system that would unify the island.  Concrete towers rose through the jungle canopy.


HAMMOND063
Code:
The sky at noon was like nothing in Europe.  Hot, tropical, a new world.


HAMMOND064
Code:
The forest smelled of wet leaves, damp earth, rotting wood.



Ruined building interior, water-damaged
HAMMOND065
Code:
Water seeped into everything.



Outside café
HAMMOND066
Code:
As I write this, tiles are cracking, smeared with windblown dirt and animal tracks.  Thick tree roots are pushing up through asphalt.  The island settles itself, beginning to erase all trace of us…



HAMMOND067
Code:
On the plain the heat was extraordinary, like a solid wall.


Stepping into Forest
HAMMOND068
Code:
When I was little I dreamed of a time when the entire world was covered by an ancient first-growth forest.  Great hunters stalked in the cool darkness, among silent, huge columnar trees - oaks, and sequoias.



A point by the roadside
HAMMOND069
Code:
I stepped out of the jeep and stretched my legs.  The two guards attended to the wheel, and just for an instant I stood alone, unprotected in the Jurassic wilderness.  I felt the air currents around me, heard a single tree rustle.



Pickup yellow crates in jeep
HAMMOND070
Code:
…cameras, and seismic instruments in yellow crates.  They set them in the dust as the helicopters rose.


Activating pumps
HAMMOND071
Code:
The steam pipes hissed and spat.  Water pumped deep into the earth came back superheated.



On pier
HAMMOND072
Code:
Chinese sailors singing in a curious keening falsetto as they unloaded the synthetic polymer eggs.


HAMMOND073
Code:
…the smells of salt water and gasoline.

End of pier
HAMMOND074
Code:
Far out to sea we would sometimes glimpse the US Coast Guard units assigned to observe our activity.




HAMMOND075
Code:
It was strange to move from the field, the hot sun, dirt on one's trouser-cuffs, into the cool, sterile darkness of the lab.



HAMMOND076
Code:
The sharp tang of the preservative chemicals.  The coolness and hush of the sterile chamber.  The daily ritual of decontamination.


HAMMOND077
Code:
The centrifuge whirred night and day.  The slow alchemy of genetic replication.




Genetics Lab

HAMMOND078
Code:
The clear fluid held a cloudy layer of DNA strands.





Computer lab
HAMMOND079
Code:
Keyboards rattled into the early morning.  Ranks of green CRT screens displayed collated genetic data.



In computer lab

HAMMOND080
Code:
We worked long into the night.  Feeling at times as if the whole of the earth had fallen away outside, leaving only the darkness, the work, the endless questing into the past.




Hammond as tour guide

Here it should sound literally as if Hammond is giving the player a walking tour of the island, and has opted to point out and describe some notable feature.



Near stone wall
HAMMOND081
Code:
A failed coffee plantation of the 1860's.  Fields were marked out by stone walls.  To the west, the ruins of the plantation house still stand.


Once through the gates
HAMMOND082
Code:
We took a shortcut south to reach the site -- west along the stream, until a tall tree shows itself, with a cluster of boulders at its base.


At the tall tree
HAMMOND083
Code:
Then walk northward, until the path appears.


Map
HAMMOND084
Code:
The power station was situated on the western coast, residences were southeast and inland.


In front of Hammond's personal computer

HAMMOND085
Code:
Some of my personal papers had been transferred to diskette.




HAMMOND086
Code:
The Albertosaurs took to the open fields like lions to the Serengeti.


HAMMOND087
Code:
The battery would last at least 20 years and wear like iron.



Pylon
HAMMOND088
Code:
The pylons ran for kilometers, one every hundred meters or so.  I built them to last.  Running east from the plant, they climbed the valley, before descending south into the plains.


Reservoir
HAMMOND089
Code:
A tank of greenish water, tinted by an algae-killing chemical, circulated through the massive cooling tower.  This reservoir was filled from a pump in the valley, some ways away.


HAMMOND090
Code:
The main harbor for Site B.


HAMMOND091
Code:
The docks were the lifeblood of Site B.  Amber, synthetic eggshell, and livestock came from all over the Pacific Rim.



Boat
HAMMOND092
Code:
The "Emily" was a tug for bringing in the bigger freighters.  Occasionally we took it out to observe specimens from offshore, or to sweep the tide for traces of our operation.


On board
HAMMOND093
Code:
It was scuttled in 1989, as a quarantine measure soon after I gave the government my testimony.


Jeep tracks
HAMMOND094
Code:
InGen Standard Safari Vehicle.  State of the art.



On picking up a dart gun
HAMMOND095
Code:
Lindstradt air guns, by the way. Swedish-made.  Unbeatable for accuracy and rate of fire.


Reception area
HAMMOND096
Code:
InGen Reception.  I had planned that someday visitors – scientists and politicians - would be welcomed here.



Inside computer building

HAMMOND097
Code:
Site B was fully centralized and computer-controlled.  The same design that became the Achilles heel of Jurassic Park.


Massive door to computer system

HAMMOND098
Code:
Diagnostics, communications, security all ran through the computer.  Accordingly, computer security was paramount, the tightest on the island.



At electric fence marked by lightning-bolt

HAMMOND099
Code:
Left to itself, the facility reverts to minimal power — chiefly battery-powered security systems.  It can sustain itself almost indefinitely.


HAMMOND100
Code:
Building the town was hard.  Costa Rican contractors were competent people, but they had to be transported, fed, housed, and afterwards, bound to silence.


HAMMOND101
Code:
The biotechnicians were compensated for living in exile.  High pay, luxury housing.  Dennis wanted computer time, and money; Henry wanted his state of the art entertainments.  These were the elite, who could have gone anywhere to work.  I had to keep them here.



HAMMOND102
Code:
A passcode let us control access to the valley and the power station beyond.


HAMMOND103
Code:
Curving up out of the southern basin, the Atherton Causeway would bring visiting scientists north from the southern beach.



HAMMOND104
Code:
The buildings followed a scheme I only vaguely understood, marking seasons, the lunar year, and the movements of the stars…



Hunter List

A roster of the hunters from the InGen hunting party – their names, descriptions, and fates. The list itself should be read clinically, dispassionately. The descriptions have a more conversational tone.


HAMMOND105
Code:
An ex-policeman from South Africa, a sort of soldier-of-fortune character.



HAMMOND106
Code:
Known as "The Maharajah" to his fellows, highly skilled but only works alone.  He was meant to radio for pickup from the comm station.


Corpse found with Biosyn equipment

HAMMOND107
Code:
I was unable to find any records whatsoever on Michael Sullivan, beyond the sole fact that his flight to the rendezvous originated in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.


HAMMOND108
Code:
LaSalle was a disciple of Roland's.  A sometime poacher, fancied himself a master hunter.


HAMMOND109
Code:
Marden, A. S.: still missing.


HAMMOND110
Code:
Karamcheti, V.: still missing.


HAMMOND111
Code:
Sullivan, R. M.: still missing.


HAMMOND112
Code:
LaSalle, P.: still missing.


HAMMOND113
Code:
Van Horn, S. T.: still missing.


HAMMOND114
Code:
Lystrata, A. L.: deceased.




DINOSAUR LIST

A roster of the major dinosaurs of the island. Read as briefing someone – throwing out a few quick details.

HAMMOND115
Code:
Albertosaur.  A loner, fast and strong, eking out a living between the seven Tyrannosaur and the three raptor tribes.



Sighting of raptors

HAMMOND116
Code:
Velociraptor, a small theropod.  Native to China and Mongolia.  Pack-hunter, quite vicious, and quite intelligent.



First sight of brachiosaur

HAMMOND117
Code:
Brachiosaur - oldest of our re-creations by 50 million years.  The only true Jurassic native.


Approach brachiosaur

HAMMOND118
Code:
One of the largest creatures ever to live, the brachiosaur moved like planets among the smaller species.



First sight of Tyrannosaur

HAMMOND119
Code:
Tyrannosaurus Rex.  Tyrant lizard, they reigned for 25 million years.  We grew 7 of them, the 7 rulers of the island.



HAMMOND120
Code:
Despite what we had been led to believe, the T-rex was not a scavenger after all.  We clocked one at 50 kilometers an hour.



First sight of Triceratops

HAMMOND121
Code:
Triceratops.  With the Tyrannosaur, one of the last dinosaurs to live naturally on our planet.




Code:
Hushed Awe


These passages narrate the moment of discovery, in which the genetic code was first retrieved – the first true contact with the Jurassic past. Hammond's voice is low and excited.

HAMMOND122
Code:
It was in the last days of genetic recovery, and at this point nothing was certain.  Was the DNA there?  Could we bring it back, up the well?


By Coke machine in hallway

HAMMOND123
Code:
It was 3AM. The room was strewn with soda cans.  For the hundredth time we ran the extraction sequence.



For a moment, sound fades in - the clatter of keyboards, people talking in low tones, the hum of hard drives - we are reliving a moment.

HAMMOND124
Code:
[whispered] Dennis?  What are we looking at here?


HAMMOND125
Code:
All my life I had waited for something great, something extraordinary.


HAMMOND126
Code:
And right then it opened up.  The code read true.  The barrier of time was, for an instant, opened.  Nedry and I stared into the monitor, straight back through 65 thousand centuries.










As Anne breaks the final puzzle, enters computer chamber

HAMMOND127
Code:
As Nedry typed, the world seemed to hold its breath.  For a moment we stood at the turning point between two great planetary eras – the million-year reign of man, and the age of the dinosaurs.




Diary Entries

These lines are excerpts from a diary Hammond kept in his mid-twenties, and they have a vivid directness that contrasts starkly with all the rest of the text. Although they have an adolescent, self-indulgent quality, they should reflect an emotional pain that is sincerely felt. As with all the text, they should be pronounced simply, with a natural and understated feel.

Anne finds HAMMOND000's diary (Anne says,"1949. This stuff is way old!". After she has seen it, we begin to hear fragments of it – the lines shown in italics.

HAMMOND128
Code:
[i]She would not answer me at first.  I asked her again.[/i]


HAMMOND129
Code:
[i]Lord Darley's charity luncheon,  a society event, £200 a place.  A bit of a step up for me, socially.   I was seated with a very pleasant young woman.[/i]


HAMMOND130
Code:
[i]I would gaze at her, at dinner parties, in moments when she was distracted.[/i]


HAMMOND131
Code:
[i]The hair on her upper lip.  The way she exhaled after taking a drag from a cigarette.[/i]


HAMMOND132
Code:
[i]I stammered, I was not certain what I should say.  She laughed, though, and seemed charmed.  She asked me to call again tomorrow.[/i]



HAMMOND133
Code:
[i]At two AM I called again.  She had not come home, nor did they know where she was.  I didn't leave my name.[/i]


HAMMOND134
Code:
[i]She would not answer me at first.  I asked her again.  Partygoers glanced curiously in my direction.  Candle light blurred in my vision.[/i]


HAMMOND135
Code:
[i]I will never forget this, and I will never forgive, I swear it.  This is the last time.[/i]




Lyrical Epiphany

These passages form a monologue. It begins conversationally, Hammond describing his legal downfall following the events of Jurassic Park. When he is asked to explain his actions, there is a break, and what comes to mind is the beauty of the woman he lost. He recalls it, then, describes the way in which his love for her drove him into his solitary ambition. The passage at the end should be spoken as if in a dream or trance. There is a strange, cold wonder to the realization.

HAMMOND136
Code:
I'm sure you've heard the rest of the story.  On the television news, or in the tabloids.


HAMMOND137
Code:
In 1989, the park was nearly complete.  Our investors demanded on-site approval.  I, idiotically as it turned out, believed we were ready.



HAMMOND138
Code:
The debacle of August 27, 1989, is now quite well known. The legal consequences were as you may imagine rather extensive.


HAMMOND139
Code:
October 3, 1989.   I sat on a wooden bench in the waiting room in Washington, DC.  A government panel put me on the stand.


HAMMOND140
Code:
As my name was read out, the session-room went silent.  I walked up the aisle toward the stand.  I was being called to account.  But I had no clear explanation to give.


HAMMOND141
Code:
Save that…in her voice or her walk, there was a world of grace and sophistication that I knew I was forever barred from.


HAMMOND142
Code:
I gave myself over to the strange, lonely discipline of the market -- investment strategies and profit.  I stood apart, master of codes and lost worlds, of heat and cold and the sleep of a hundred million years.



HAMMOND143
Code:
My work lies where I left it, if there is anyone brave enough and clever enough to take it and return – the keys to time, perhaps the foundation of a new empire.


HAMMOND144
Code:
On the last day, I stood apart from the rest of them.  The helicopters were setting down.


Code:
Before me the jungle spread out, and I saw that a savage, primal age had begun again.



As spoken to the pilot of his helicopter, when Hammond abandons the island.
HAMMOND145
(quietly)
Code:
Come on, son.  Get us out of here.





The Past

These passages are all part of Hammond's account of his youth and rise to success.


HAMMOND146
Code:
I left home at 15, with the rather romantic idea of seeking my fortune.  I remember the train ride south, in my best clothes, eating an apple.  The entire world before me.


HAMMOND147
Code:
When I came to London I had neither fortune nor education nor connections.  Nothing!



Musings

These passages have a more personable, conversational tone, and are often amused or . They vary in emotional emphasis though, and may require individual direction.

HAMMOND148
Code:
A lost world is a sort of scientific myth.  An evolutionary scenario in which an ecosystem is isolated and preserved.  The rest of the world changes, leaving a tiny, fragile pocket where ancient species survive.


HAMMOND149
Code:
American-made tranquilizer darts.  The effects change with the target's body mass, temperament, and mood.  I believe the phrase is, "Results may vary."


At ruined building foundation

HAMMOND150
(vehemently)
Code:
Creation is an act of sheer will.  Next time, it'll be flawless!




Henry Wu's
HAMMOND151
Code:
Doctor Wu's laboratory was a mystery to me.  I never finished my schooling — I had a child's idea of science.  Test tubes, explosions, and miracles.




Various places on the plains

HAMMOND152
Code:
Hunting dinosaurs is quite tricky business.  I recommend helicopters, if you've got them.



Crashed plane

HAMMOND153
Code:
We were neither the only covert business to thrive in Central America, nor the most dangerous.



Raptor on steps

HAMMOND154
Code:
The raptor preened itself, utterly confident of its right to be there.  Absolutely no consciousness that it was not the sovereign ruler of this earth.



HAMMOND155
Code:
What if a mosquito sucked the blood of a dinosaur, one hundred million years ago.  The insect is then covered in tree sap which, over millennia, becomes amber.


HAMMOND156
Code:
The insect is preserved, perfectly.  But — you see, here's the clever part — wouldn't the dinosaur blood be preserved as well?


HAMMOND157
Code:
The blood holds DNA, a tiny spiral of genetic code.  Abra cadabra!


At a Security keypad

HAMMOND158
Code:
I still believe Nedry left himself a backdoor — something about the hobbits or god knows what.




Greenwood

A short story of an adventurer who comes to grief, told in a conversational tone, as if in an interview.


Anne finds campsite in cave: floppy disks, a broken radio

HAMMOND159
Code:
I first met Harold Greenwood in 1992.  He was an American, introduced to me as a former Green Beret.  He asked a number of questions about the disposition of the InGen Technology.


HAMMOND160
Code:
Harry claimed to be a friend of my former son-in-law.  I liked him — he was confident, dashing.



Anne finds opened security gate, with a box attached to the security monitor

HAMMOND161
Code:
Greenwood carried some sort of electronic device, which we are told he built himself, based on plans he found on the Internet.



CODA



Afterword
HAMMOND162

Ozymandias

Code:
I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said – "two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert…. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings,
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains.  Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."



Again, enjoy the read...
And thanks to tatu for this.

Already read this and don't remember all my points of interest... But I was pleased to find out the philosophy behind the seemingly random numbers assigned to Hammond's voiceovers. I kinda suspect it may be common practice to do it like this; it seems ideal to let a voice actor get into a certain mood and tone of voice and then do several voiceovers that way.
