over two thousand lives were placed in my trust.
I was their guardian.
I was to protect them.
I broke that trust.
Now I listen to the screams of my kinsmen, hundreds already dead.
One way or another I will make sure this never happens again.

No. 416164 ID: 87d18a

Guessing his next words weren't going to be 'Candy Factory'. Get someone on the radio or another engineer to figure out how to power the reactor down some without turning it off- Don't really want to be fighting these things in the more dark.

Pike: "she's still alive but it looks like she's got some sort of burn damage to her suit, if we get her to the scrub cleaner-"

Kimb: "then just do it"

Kimb turns towards the reactor controls

Pike: "NO!"

Kimb: "What now?"

Pike: "Zane ordered us to keep the reactor active!"

Kimb: "Zane's not qualified to make that assessment, I am."

Pike: "there's got to be another way to fix the reactor!"

Kimb: "Like what?"

Pike: "well you're an engineer-"

Kimb: "a weapons engineer, not a reactor technician."

Pike: "what if we put it down to half charge."

Kimb: "an expert couldn't adjust its output capacity. Stop being a fool you heard the tech, this things a giant bomb now, shutting it down is the only responsible thing to do."

I gotta follow orders, I can't be a traitor again, gotta do things right . . . there's one way to fix the ship, a method even I can employ . . . a forbidden method.

Pike: "Kimb you act as if we only have one option left to us and I agree."

Kimb: " I don't have time-"

Pike: "but shutting down the reactor is NOT that option. I am not a traitor I will not play into that creatures hand, I am not a tool!"

Kimb: "debatable"

Pike: "our only option to save this ship is to perform the Ritual Of The Unspoken Word"

Kimb: . . .

Pike: "one life to save a thousand is not too much to pay! how can you not agree."

Kimb: "Koza told me you had gone mad, I can see he wasn't exaggerating"

Pike: "Listen to what-"

Kimb: "No. I'm shutting it down. Take the Engineer to the ScrubCleaner."

Zane:"What do you even WANT? What makes all this death worth it?"

Pike: "Zane you're better then this! we must fight on to the death, fight regardless of wounds fight until one can fight no longer!"

Pike is technically correct and the glory is tempting I could push forward, I could continue powering my armour to compensate for my injuries. but the longer I strain my body the greater the risk for permanent damage.
No. 421413 ID: 9cb4b3

No, regroup, even at half strength only two against it is suicide, you need more men to go with you to kill it properly. Get your wounds treated, too.

Astranians should never fight in small numbers if you can avoid it, you work much better in groups and you still have tons of militia left, we need to plan and pick our final battle with it wisely.

"my shield is compromised, it can read my thoughts now. so it will be able to hear me coming. i can serve at best as a distraction. take the direct route, you cut it off." just walk/ don't run or do anything strenuous. and don't stop thinking "i'm gonna kill you"
No. 421415 ID: e3f578

Also technically, you can no longer fight if you view the amount of wounds doesn't allow you to move on.

Only if you can fight through the pain is when Pike is correct. When the pain is too much for you to handle, then you stop fighting, because you're incapacitated. Which doesn't necessarily mean death. You can't fight if you're incapacitated, that's moronic.

Tell him you'll only continue fighting if he promises to never slow down and wait for you, or even try to save you. That is to risk the mission. Tell me you two, is the fight and your glory or the mission more important? Honestly, I view killing that creature far more important than your life, but that could be different to you. Whatever you believe in, tell Pike to never ever slow down or wait for you, no matter what. You kill that fucking thing you fucking fucker. It has no health bar and that's mainly because of a single soldier. If Pike's half the fighter you are, which is apparently worth 4/5's of its health bar, than he can take it down alone if you don't make it.

Please, end this Pike. Not for glory, but for the mission. The mission.
No. 421422 ID: f387a1

Go. Not for the glory, not because of the mission. Don't throw the weight of your decisions on the shoulders of others. Death is when you stop trying, is to be afraid of living the way you choose. Why do you fight? Do it for yourself, do it because that's how you choose to live.
No. 421433 ID: aaeb1c

You have no shields, you can track it through the ship, thing might be able to control you ifyou get too close, going after it now is retarded. Go get backup, new shields, AMMO FOR YOUR GUN, and get your horrible wound fixed up. Just what good do you expect to do against him in your condition? Seriously, going after it now is retarded.

I try to contact Koza for reinforcements . . .
no response
I try to contact Hoft and Dosk for reinforcements . . .
no response

The Disintegrater only uses outdated RayTech batteries. I keep several in my Locker in the Marine RestChambers, there may also be spare shields there. Coincidently the quickest route to the RestChamber is down the same path the Tech-Leech went.

I gather what remaining soldiers I have left

HazardSoldier: "Sorry Sergeant, that bridge knocked the sense clean outta me"

Zane: "it's good to have you back."

HazardSoldier: " . . . the rest didn't make it."

Zane: "there'll be enough time for mourning later."

Speaking of mourning I notice that Kimb and the Engineer are not with Pike, I fear what sacrifice must have been made to fix this ship . . . Should I confront Pike on this?

I'm no commander but the best option seems to be to press foreward, and hopefully distract the Tech-Leech long enough for Pike to cut it off and move in for the kill. With his impact shields Pike might just stand a chance.

No. 421953 ID: 132b99

no, you don't want to be thinking about it, otherwise the tech leech may learn of it and he tells the rest of his kind somehow. if you are both alive after it's dead, you ca talk then.
No. 421961 ID: e3f578

First priority is to get your shields back on and charged up.

Give your disintergrator to the person you think is the best shot if you can't aim it very good in your state.

Make a joke to a fellow weapon lover that they don't make Raytech like they use to, referring to your disintergrator, and that this shit chewed it to bits. I wonder if you can jury rig more generators, does this ship have a Raytech expert on alive? And can convert other peoples weapons or combine them with a few parts to act like them on current batteries, even if it makes them a little unstable the sacrifice will be worth it.
No. 422026 ID: 214bf9

All we need to know is if they managed to fix it or not, the details can wait
No. 422028 ID: 9cb4b3

Alright fine, go down that path and grab the batteries and extra shields, but try to relax a little, don't make your wounds worse if you don't have to.

I order Pike to move on ahead, I leave the plan vague, that way the Tech-Leech can't use it against us.

now I clear my mind filling it with only a single thought.

one thought as I march towards the RestChamber towards anything that awaits me, towards anything that bars my path.

this thought, call it a mission, a goal, or task consists of but one element, that of my enemy's ultimate destruction.

from this point on there is nothing more.
