"Ok, we should do something about this spire now. Nequeba, William, I will fly back to your CASKET's now. We'll then move back to the spire where the Commander and I will fly a distraction while you two get directly to the tower and bash it however you see fit...some further coordination will happen once we get you to your CASKET's"
*Hold up my PDA so my passengers can see it clearly, tapping on it*
[On PDA, sent only to Foreigner, Nequeba and Quackshot: Ok, listen up! Whatever we say over the comms will reach Blake...and whatever is in his head right now will get it too. So either play along with them or say nothing, as long as we keep the spoken things somewhat reasonable. As for the Situation at hand, I will get you two to your CASKET's as said, even if it's risky...from there on we'll try something more complicated...as Nequeba is best suited for handling the Spire itself, we'll need to come up with some kind of distraction to allow her to get to it in the first place. For this we should split up to divert Blake's attention as he can't focus on all of us at once if we do so. Nequeba and William will fly in a wide, clockwise circle around the spire while the Commander and I fly counterclockwise. During this phase I'll set up a mock-hack to distract Blake. William, once you circled far enough, you should seek cover, preferably when Blake's not watching. Keep out of his sight, perhaps we can confuse him a bit. Nequeba should then fly to the Spire, trying to utilize cover as much as possible, once near enough, try to damage it with your pincers or your infantry-equipment...I know, a ship-mounted weapon would be more useful for this task...but we'll have to work with what we have right now. Once you're close enough you could also try a hypersonic-hack on either Blake or the Spire...try to shut down one of them if you want. If hopefully all goes well we can then regroup and hack this thing to pieces.
Ah right, before I forget it...Nequeba, while we fly back to your CASKET's...there's a high risk that those fliers will target us...as soon as the dust starts growing thicker I want you to use your Lightning-amp to create some kind of static field around us. The dust seems to be some kind of battery or coordinator for those things...perhaps we can cripple their coordination like that. William, stay sharp, if your intuition tells you that something is incoming...tell us immediately, I'll try to evade then. Serious Questions on PDA please!]
"Hold on tight, I'll try to get this way behind us fast!"
Fly back to Nequeba's and William's CASKET's as fast as possible
Fly at a max altitude of 30meters above ground
Fly past the mind-control spire with a distance of at least 600m
When in range, use a normal ship hack to try and corrupt Blake's mobility systems to degrade his aim.
Don't hack him if he managed to shake of the mind-control
In that case, don't hack anything.
Once arrived at the CASKET's, land next to them.
When my passengers got off
-Fly to a position at the lower right corner of E8.
Use intuition to try to predict possible attack and evade them in this knowledge
If William tells me of an incoming threat
-Use his intuition to try to evade the threat
If hit on the way
-Drop to 15m and fly onward
-If hit again
--Land and drive onward unless when it would be over the vines. in that case fly on!

Apparently, sometimes stuff might happen.
