There are at least six calamari here with us. Buck should have gotten most of them with his gravgun. We've also got drake dogs to deal with so, you know, we're kinda held up right now. For the moment we could use your help in eliminating the ground troops. I should warn you though that Buck managed to shut off the gravity, so you shouldn't expect to walk when you get here."
Well, at least Brom has a too large ego to panic
"Allright, I just got your map data, I can see the fighters and some squids inside...
Should we expect trouble when trying to land?"
(( maybe you should tell us about the squids outside, no? :P ))
"Buck... shut off gravity? Ho - you know what, I don't even want to know.
Also, since when do you have a dog called Drake?"

((I just hope that between magnetic clamps and the high PSI/Exotic stats for the tentacle...actually, I didn't even think about using my PSI unit to help it...it shows that I never cared much for PSI before :ghost: OK, edited my actions accordingly! - so, I hope that the cumulative effect of that would be enough to bring Caleb's ship back to base :ghost: ))

*Hissing hurriedly*

"Trouble? Only with the fighters perhaps that are going to shoot us all to pieces!
And no dogs!"

*Whines loudly*

"Big scaly, gliding monsters! They are agile! They have so many teeth and claws! They're trying to eat Brom! And us! Please help! They'll go and kill us all!"
Apparently, sometimes stuff might happen.

"There shouldn't be anything left outside aside from the accursed fighters flying in.
Just shoot anything left on the ground and come on in. We'll mop up the enemies and leave to deal with the fighters!
The drakes are going to take some time to explain! Suffice it to say that the squids have pets, and one of them is ready to pounce on me!"

"The Hiltorel have pet dragons?? Why don't we have those? I want a pet dragon!
...
Right. Er, yes, we're coming. But... looking at the map, those fighters are gonna reach you before we can, we're over 10 km away still."

"Allright, Ishmael, but hurry." (( i.e. don't loot everything first :P ))
"Bob, Gearhead, time to leave please. Caleb, you better just land at the Nemesis, you need a doctor. You've done your part today already, I think. You can report what we've done so far."

First, I wait for Gearhead to catch up. Then, I fly on towards the colony.
While flying, I sing the old classic 'Rocky road to Huhoba', forgetting to turn of my comms, of course.
"...One, two, three, four, five
Hunt the squid and turn her down the rocky road and all the way to Huhoba, whack-fol-la-de-da!"
If I spot enemies, I shoot bubbles at them once (preferring a weak spot) and then try to get into cover if there is any.
If no enemies are spotted when we reach the grav plant ((unlikely)), I land my ship, and keep it running with a slight downward thrust (so I can't go floating away), and survey the surroundings.

*To my squad*
"Gene! Move back to the center area behind cover and help me deal with this thing!
We're going to have to make it quick because I think Buck and Frank are in over their heads!
After it's down we're moving back behind them. Frank, in the meantime see if you can figure out what the hell they're talking about!
Buck, that baton of yours has proven extremely effective against those creatures, so I may need you to switch with me after we come to relieve you.
If the creatures make a move though give me a shout and I'll fill them with lead myself!"

Quickly drop my shield and pistol and switch to my shotgun.
As soon as my shotgun is out, take aim an fire at the nearest drake dog.
If he doesn't go down, I will fire a second time and reload.
If I'm still being attacked by the drakes, I will get into cover and wait for them to close the gap between us.
I will fire one shot per drake (Observing the shot limit).

After all attacking drake dogs are down, I will switch to my lasgun and charge to the marked location on my map.
If I see any hostile squids (as in they are interested in attacking us at that moment), I will take aim and fire at the nearest (provided I have not reached my shot limit).

((Actions to come later))
A little apprehensively initially at the thought of having to fight the scary green thing up close again:

"Um, yeah sure, ain't got nothin' against that... Just come here fast, more squids are closin' in from my direction!"

"This is Kushir Enirata, current Minister of Affairs at colony Huhoba Qitsit," a voice says from the holoscreen. "We had a deal with Tartarus Incorporated that would benefit us both. Why have you betrayed us? Please answer."

"You came under the guise of friendship, but have created strife and bloodshed ever since your arrival. Now you attack our colony. Over fifty thousand souls reside here. Would you put them in danger?"

*Fearful, almost pleading/whining, while keeping head down*
"Weren't those league-guys who shot us down your people? And the fighters who immediately started harassing the wreck?? What damn deal?!? All they told us was that you were about to kill us all!

"While we and the Outer World League occasionally share information, we are not affiliated with them," Enirata states firmly; his large, dark eyes narrow to slits. "Despite understanding that you planned to bomb our colony from orbit, we sent an escorted diplomatic envoy to your vessel - but you disregarded this gesture of peace and immediately attacked us upon arrival! If this entire incident is retaliation for believing we are part of OWL, your actions are gravely misguided! We will grant you a fair trial before the Hsilkorian Rebirth's High Council, but you must stand down!"

stuff some interesting loose bits of the cannon into my repairkit and put the repairkit into its mount on my ship
get the rest of my equipment stored away in my ship as well
Run a quick systems check on my ship's systems, because im sure something broke while i wasnt watching it. Like Caleb. Every. DAMN. Time.
Lift off and form up with Cheeks-of-Steel ((Saoirse, before you do anything stupid >.> Tal <.< ))
Shoot on any Hilly flyer that lines up to shoot at Saoirse, threatens any other friendly or is weakened by Saoirse's bubbles. In that order of priority, until im out of shooy juice.

After telling the holosquid off, get an idea. Into my comms, quietly:

"Someone keep this squid-king or whatever the hell he is on the line, I know a way to slow them squids comin' for us down! Frank, you like talkin' to this guy, so talk to him!"

((I want to try and make this guy think that I'm able to detonate my bomb from my PDA and then get him to tell the fighters in the north to stop. I'll have to cobble together a quick fake detonator on my PDA if I want this to actually seem convincing, however. I hope that quickly making something like this can be done in 1 turn, since it's an extremely barebones and simple-to-program "app". I also hope that this would use my computer/hacking skill, rather than my robotics/aux skill.))

Equip my baton
Charge at the drakedog that's attacking Brom, while trying to minimize my exposure to possible fire from the squids in the east
Bash the drakedog with the baton until:
a) It is dead/incapacitated
b) It retreats
Take cover somewhere safe from the squids, if I'm not already in cover
if holosquid is still on the line and I'm not in immediate danger (immediate danger = being in melee combat, not being in proper cover, etc.):
-Cobble together an extremely basic UI that literally only has one big button with "DETONATE" written on it and "1 Megaton charge: Primed" written above it, on my PDA. Also, if I can do it quickly, make it so that pushing the button makes the entire UI disappear and turn into a 30 second countdown (which doesn't actually do anything) and a button with "STOP COUNTDOWN" written, which when clicked returns to the initial "DETONATE" screen (hope that I'm not being confusing, I can clarify if needed)
-Show the holosquid the fake detonator and say "You better tell your evil minions to stand down, or I'm turnin' this shithole o' yours into a pile o' nuclear mud! Them fighters in the air too, tell 'em to turn around and go away!"
if at any point I get attacked in melee
-Hit the enemy with the baton (if I still have non-penalized uses left)"
