Memo 17
Sender Michael Li Recipient Zhu Fang
Just got word from the higher-ups-it looks like Silver managed to call in a few favors. The item will be shipped to New York this January. I'm sorry, but it looks like it's out of our hands.

Memo 18
Sender Nagatsuka Hiroji Recipient Zhu Fang
Mr. Zhu, I think I have a solution to our little problem. I would like to speak with you in your office tonight. Don't record this memo; it would be best if this was kept off the record.

Ideas: Basically, petty contest between two high-up MC&D employees who hate each other and are trying to curry favor with the bosses. The American manages to get a great permanent rental deal with Prometheus Labs, but the Chinese one leaves out some crucial details that result in the Labs experiencing a disaster when an entire facility disappears. Zhu thinks he's won, but the person directly under him has been manipulating the whole thing to get the hammer into IJAMEA's hands. He steal the item, and we end with a gloating note from the American.

Nagatsuka convinced Zhu to put an antimemetic agent into the information, in order to prevent the bell-ringing condition from being found out. The effect wore off as soon as Prometheus's facility disappeared, making it look as if Silver messed up. Zhu trusted Nagatsuka enough to let him look for new renters, but Nagatsuka was just manipulating him to get the Hammer back into his own hands.
