Early intersect

The Intersect prototype refers to the Intersect that is seen in Chuck's flashback in the Season Three episode, Chuck Versus the Ring: Part 2. This Intersect is believed to be a test Intersect that Stephen Bartowski was building to see if the project was viable.

In the flashback, young Chuck enter his father's office while Stephen is out of the room. Chuck finds the test Intersect on his work desk, and activates the downloading process by pressing enter, and the entire Intersect downloads into his brain. Stephen returns and is concerned and surprised to discover that Chuck has apparently uploaded the test Intersect. When he realizes Chuck has come to no harm, he is relieved and apparently proud, telling his son that he is special.

It is unknown what happened to the data that was transferred to Chuck's brain, but it seems likely to have remained in Chuck's brain, as no evidence has been found of a reversal processes occurring until the events of Chuck Versus the Colonel.

It is, however, possible that the brevity of this test Intersect or perhaps the method in which it was created, made the effect temporary or negligible.
