Suddenly go dead in the water, minimal power and nose down to sink rapidly. Garble out a "power lost, we're going down" with some nice fake static. Wait to see how the enemy reacts. They will either break off or chase. Breaking off means we can can slam out engines back on on get to our destination, chasing means they have power diverted to engines and momentum Built up and we can pop off a torpedo they can't avoid.

Our asset is worth more than scrap. Being able to operate Unsuppressed is important too. We aren't going to have time to scavenge as well.

Scan the food first. Make sure it isn't laced. If it is, use our nanobots to subvert anything and then partake gently. Also calm down, we aren't going to get anything by being rude/angry/brash

This is a job interview. We passed the first two tests. This is a test as well. Be professional.

Attack the Infomancer on two fronts. Send Scuzzy to harass in the real world and make it look like we don't know what we're doing while panicking. The trapped Kernel will look like an oversight and he should at least attempt to poke it. Either way the Infomancer gets distracted and we take it out. The forces in the building can handle the mundane attack force.

D but take the equivalent of a blackmail photo to keep him on the hook. Something like a screen cap of the 'mancer holding the unique ID checksum of his avatar to identify it as him being punked by a young upstart to keep his loyalty. Something that would destroy his career if it got out. Swear on our honor as a hacker that it will be kept in confidence and returned to him/destroyed and him alone at the completion of a future task. Then upon agreement kick out that guy form our data stream as fast as possible and do a full system sweep and purge to avoid any nasty surprises left behind.

Could we build a passive data tap for all the non-mission critical data. We are basically inside the server. We could spend a moment to build a crawler and a covert outside tap to slowly snatch bits of data and dump them down a rabbit hole through some dummy servers and eventually into our hands where we can slowly recompile the data. Should be low visibility for such a high traffic port.

If not then the full smash and grab

Could we call in our Hacker Frenemy for a favor. He either wrecks up the place or snatches the data for us in exchange for canceling the debt as well as doing whatever the gently caress he wants here?

E. Split scuzzy into two halves. The kernel and the data leave a husk with a self replication routine. The Husk takes a random chunk of data and copies that into two new husks. Those husks then grab two bytes of nearby data and replicate that. This should grow fast enough to overwhelm the capture protocol drones. The kernel secures its data and bails in the ensuing chaos. Once we are out, the husks all self terminate and litter the server with terabytes of scrap code and replicated data.

MALCODE MOTHERFUCKER!

We gotta pin it on someone who won't care and lends credence to it being an act of vandalism.

Paint it as an act of ecoterrorism done by one of the low-mid level protest groups.

I'm sure a station like this is crawling with fringe types that are barely organized. Enough to pull off a stunt like this, but without the resources to verify they did or or to look into who actually did it. Also the station most likely doesn't like them for being meddlers in general and no one will miss it.

Hit the competition directly. Everything else is too messy and leaves us open to reprisal or discovery.

Wipe her memory but have it be a time delayed response. We leave overriding commands so she goes home, leaves a small note of resignation and apology and then "self-terminates". It would follow with her fear of her supervisor and the...insidious nature of their conversation. Most likely she is on the list of clean up details so really this is a favor.

Be mature and think about it. We are good at obsessing, why not obsessed over her proposal.
