"Also, I do have something to tell you guys...we've got an additional objective, straight from the captain. Apparently, some dumbass left our sealed orders in the nacelle, and we're to get them back. So, uh...look for anything that looks like documents."
"Looks like documents? Didn't they tell you anything more specific? It's kind of a big place to look for a piece of paper or a PDA... I also hope that squid didn't just fly off with it."

(( they did :P

"I need you to visit that nacelle. If you search near the front of the primary cargo area, you'll find an old red-and-black crate with Captain Machellan's name printed on it, dimensions two feet by one foot by one foot. It should be sealed tight. Don't open it - bring it back directly to me. I'll reward you for it."

"Also we should maybe ask our captive friend there what they were doing here. And I really wanna know how his friend here kept teleporting around.
I'd ask him but I'm, er, not very good with people..."

((I just want to tell you that Ishmael is not Foreigner - you can count on him to kill the enemies and not do anything Lemons did, but don't count on him using common sense RP-wise. He doesn't have any :ghost: ))

I turn to look incredulously at Ishmael. "So you're saying we should leave her unrestrained so that she can stab us in the back the moment she has a chance?"
"Trustworthiness is important for all, and those who deceive are bound t' be found out eventually, and dealt with justly. In this case, 'eventually' would be rather soon. Have faith, young man."

Walk towards the surrendered Hiltorei mercenary.
"Call me Ishmael. And what is your name?"
Tell her it'd have been nice to meet her under different circumstances.
Motion her to sit down on some rock or crate.
Collect the weapons she dropped,
AND put them in a pile near me.
Sit down next to the Hiltorei,
AND use my charismatic amp to make her answer my questions truthfully and fully:
What was their mission?
Why did their commander abandon them?
How did her fallen comrade teleport around?


Continue with the friendly conversation.
Say I feel sorry for her, as she was abandoned by their commander, and that true brothers-in-arms don't do that.
Use charismatic amp again to ask her whether there are any enemies inside the nacelle.
IF there are any,
ask her (using charismatic amp) whether she wants to help us deal with them - preferably peacefully - to avoid further bloodshed, and not abandon them to be slaughtered, like that asshole commander did to her.


IF she agrees, give her her weapons back.

"'Have faith?' Yeah, i have faith. I have faith that she's likely to turn on us the second she thinks she can get away with it. Or are you forgetting that not thirty seconds ago she'd have happily blasted your brains out? Like it or not, we're the invaders here, and I'd be amazed if she doesn't hate our guts."

Ye gods, this man is insane!

"Not near death!? 'course he is, fella! Yarr sayin' if I done hit 'em now, he'd still be alive? Wanna take a bet?"

Fry the remaining squid (use the MFM max once)
if I fail to kill it
-Disengage from combat with it
if there are no remaining squid fighters left
-Follow Brom to the gravplant, but don't land immediately

"It's pronounced Seersha, and I'll see if I can find something."

So. No PSI pack, no blinky device...
Weird... how did he control those PSI things then?

First off: it at any point our captive makes an attempt to flee, attack or go away ((whether or not becuase of Ishmael)) I try to stasis him (up to four times).

I pick up Spoon again, and use my PDA to scan Blinky, trying to figure out whether he had some implants or so.
Then I get in my ship and fly and land it somewhere closer to the nacelle, and get out again ((see picture))

I run towards Bob, tackle-hug him and say "Bob! You're alive!"
Then, when I notice him being harmed, I gently help him towards Gearhead (but not right where Gearhead wants to land) to get patched up.
Then I walk around the battlefield, checking the boxes for one matching Caleb's description. If I find it, I pick it up and carry it to my CASKET, and attach it to my leftover aux slot or in my cargo pod (depending on whether or not it's magnetic enough to stick).
I also observe the ships standing there for anything interesting. (such as PSI equipment, upgrades or other weapons).
I walk over to the nacelle and look into the hole in the side (use my helmet lamp if it's dark).
If I see enemies there (not counting our captive), I get in the nearest cover (in which case, ignore the actions after this).

Finally, I walk over to where Lemons crashed down.


He might not have been the sharpest tool in the shed, but he didn't deserve to die so soon... poor guy.
If his exoskeleton is still salvageable, I gently remove it from his body and go dump it in my cargo pod.
Then, I use my grav amp to dig a hole in the ground next to him, push his body into it, use my grav amp to fill it again, and pile some rocks on his grave.
Finally, I play him Hector the Hero on my bagpipes.
(( note to Tal: irish bagpipes are bellow blown, not mouth blown, so no that doesn't involve taking of my helmet, I'm not Francis :ghost:
Also reminder that my bagpipes are on a quickdraw slot, because this is important obviously :D ))

"Oh, by the way, Vynkor. Apparently there were only minor damages to my ship before. Rebooting the computer started a re-routing program that fixed that problem for now."

Shoot the last hostile fighter with the MFM.
Follow Vynkor and land near her landing spot.
Take my stuff and get out of the ship (usual procedures apply)
Hand vynkor a coagulant booster (expecting her to use it right away, honestly)
Load a tranqu bolt in the crossbow and keep at vynkor's CASKET
Idly look around, perhaps there's a restaurant or take-out-place somewhere close by.
If hostile, armed hiltorel appear (less that 3)
-take cover behind vynkor's CASKET and shoot one of them.
-reload with another tranqu and shoot another hostile.
-wait for an opportune moment and get back into my CASKET
If they are vastly outnumbering us
-try to talk them into non-lethal approaches.
-play for time there.
When vynkor is done and there's no superior hiltorel force
Get into my CASKET and fly to brom.
Keep in the air near buck for now.
In case AA is spotted, land ASAP.
