You were once a ghost of the Terran Dominion. AFter Arcturus Mengsk died and Korhal fell you defected from the Dominion. Now you fight for freedom and attempt to unify the fringes against a coming Zerg threat. The Dominion continues to hunt you, as do criminals and bounty hunters. Your task is impossible - and that's optimistic. The fringes are spiraling into civil war, losing planets to the Zerg and Protoss, and the Dominion is preparing it's ships to reclaim the worlds for the crumbling empire. Even with your skilled crew you're starting to doubt your mission is even possible. But you still have to try.Adjutant A.I. online. Good Morning, Commander.
I have completed the report of casualties from our previous mission, and the report on Planetary activity while repairs to the Daluke were completed.Note that all systems are at 100% and our combat readiness is currently optimal.
Casualties: 386 Daluke Crew20 Marines1 Marauder3 Firebats3 Medics1 Ghost AWOL 6 Wraiths1 Hercules DropshipAdded:1 Command Center 1 Barracks1 Starport4 Supply Depots2 RefineriesRecruited: 125 Civilians. (74 Male 51 Female)1 ScientistTrained:48 SCVs100 Marines34 Medics34 Firebats2 Siege Tanks5 Goliaths11 WraithsRemaining Resources: 6250 Minerals, 0 Gas.Priority request from Base Commander: >"Sir, gas is our big bottleneck right now. We're going to need more deposits to keep up production, let alone start jumping. If you need to jump out of the system we're going to have to purchase some Vespene locally."
RIght, lets pick a place to setup a base or five. Bring 3/4s of our SCVs with us?
Can we go talk to Charlie?
You head to the bridge. In the downtime between missions the hallway leading from the Bridge to the Living quarters has been converted to a shrine to the Fallen. One of your SCV operators has wielded the words below to the top structural beam:>"IN MEMORY OF THOSE WHO HAVE FALLEN. WE WILL NEVER FORGET THEIR SACRIFICE."There are a multitude of names, pictures, KIA readouts, lit candles on the railing, flowers, a single stuffed purple dinosaur, hand-written letters, and a memorial itself below the words. Most of the names you recognize. Some, regrettably, you do not. There's still plenty of space, and you know it's not all of the names yet. Charlie's on the Bridge. Investing so much in medical facilities might be the only reason she's alive and awake right now.>"Dee. Nelhav just finished her report on the research from the Changeling. We've been able to create a new type of suit - Chameleon suits. They're able to run stealth reactors without Psionics. Can't armor them yet, but this is big. With the reverse-engineered C-20A rifles and the Project Shadowblade equipment, we're equipped to produce Spectres. Y'know, if you decide we want to."This isn't the first time she's suggested this since she woke up. She hasn't said much about Whiskey's departure but you can tell it hurt her massively. She stayed with you despite everything, however.
>>26292752Can we sell or trade some of our minerals for Vespene?Regardless we should still purchase gas here. Can we bring up the starmap?
>>26292829Once we get gas we'll build you one. I get in too many close combat fights to go without armor sadly.Also yes lets trade supplies and minerals for vespene.
You nod to Charlie, before stepping up to the Captain's Podium. The XO turns to you.>"Sir, Murric's reports have come in. I'm updating the starmap for you now. Main screen turn on.">Jungle World XTYU003: Edge of Protoss space. Protoss ruins on planet.

Occupied by single unified brood, Zerg biomass is increasing.>Promeshi: Scanners indicate multiple Radiation spikes consistent with a nuclear Arsenal. Records indicate that this is a Dominion mining operation.
>>26292882Chameleon suits are modified HE Cirus suits, Commander.It is effectively an improvement on standard ghost armor.Reminder: You and Charlie have more advanced suits, although they lack the upgraded stealth capacity. It is possible that as research continues this upgrade will be available to you.
>>26292933>Gas Giant 09812Z "Henderson's Fart":
>>26292917>Gas Giant 09812Z "Henderson's Fart": Composed of Caslon, Hydrogen, Helium, Terrazine, Vespene, and some Alcohols. Long range scans indicate Zerg activity.Do we have an estimate as to how much Zerg activity there is?>New Albuquerque: The People's Republic of New Albuquerque (PRNA) and the New Albuquerque Confederacy are at war. PRNA is a communist totalitarian government, while the NAC are a republic. The NAC is losing the war.Another mess we probably need to help clean up. Given what we know of Whiskey, what would be the probability that he is here?
>>26292752>>26292829Alright wow...good news on the suits then. That means we can stay stealth eternally right? We should buy enough vespene for two way trip to our next destination, enough to get back to Murric if we need to.As for the world, I wanted to go to the old Hive world...but>All contact with the planets' prospectors was lost after a reported Zerg attack. Long range scans indicate that Zerg hive clusters have resurfaced on the planet.I take it they'd retaken up shop...crap.
>>26293025Its risky, but we might end up hitting them while they are rebuilding their hives.
>>26293022I have no additional intelligence on the Zerg or Whiskey's location at this time, Commander.>>26293025I will allocate enough resources for several jumps, Commander, if that is your initial plan at this time.
>>26292933Is there anyway to scout the old hive world and get an estimation of how powerful the forces are there? If we can, I'd like to shove the Zerg off the planet and take it ourselves...but it seems unlikely we'll be able to.
>>26293059My thoughts exactly, I just want to make sure. No more blind jumps. Send a robotic scout or something.
>>26293071It is possible to dispatch an away team, Commander.
>>26293108Do it. Tell them to take no chances, if they are spotted they are to immediately leave again.
>>26293108Make it nice and small then, almost invisible if you can, Adjutant. I want to get us up a real base, and this place might be our best bet...
>"Commander, if I may, instead of sending an away team to a planet we completely, totally, 100% already know is occupied by Zerg forces we probably can't fight, why don't we focus on resourcing? There is an entire gas giant of Vespene gas that we need that's bound to be far less defended, just as one example. Hell, we can ask Murric for assistance if you're dead set on that mission."
>>26293251As the XO says then. I trust our NPCs more then myself.
>>26293277sad isn't it.Alright lets head to the gas giant then.
>>26293251To Glory! Also the gas giant. Mainly the gas giant, really.
>1 Jungle World XTYU003>2 Gas Giant 09812Z "Henderson's Fart">3 Continental Planet 34R75 "Xander's rock">4 Volcanic World HA002>5 Forest World NN014 "New Ares">6 Urban World Kilaro>7 Space Platform A-22-OP/Tarento>8 Nohallan>9 Barren World JZ01919/ Dick's Paradise>10 Corendis>11 New Albuquerque>12 Station 114>13 Skorpia Shipyards>14 Jestos>15 Promeshi
>>26293289Quite honestly, I'm willing to follow any sort of railroad that will take us out of this death spiral we have ourselves in.Please, have NPCs give suggestions more.
If we want to set up a mining operation at Henderson's Fart, we might also want to ferry some supplies to Kilaro's legitimate government.Oh, wait. without the Hercules we have no good cargo transport except the Daluke. Nevermind! Let's just go mine vespene and fuck the rest of the universe.
>>26293392It's probably better that we don't split up anyway. Any time we scooby doo, we die pretty horribly.
>>26293375Since you're here all the time, how about you apply some brain cells to remember to ask the NPCs question more often? I know it'll hurt and you'll probably have to stop chewing gum while you do, but it would be a lot more useful than your usual suggestions.
>>26293435I love you too anon
>"Set course for the Gas Giant.">"Aye aye, Commander. XO to all stations, prepare for warp jump."The giant replaces Murric in the window, as do several small dots... and one very large one. You look to the scanners to identify it. A massive Zerg life form is dipping tendrils into the Giant. They're mining here too.>"Sir, scanners indicate it's harvesting terrazine.">"What could Zerg want with terrazine...?">"Lieutenant, patch me through to Nelhav. Launch the alert fighters and prepare to engage. Looks like they're planning on bugging out. "The woman's face shows up on one of the main screens. She's looking at the same feed you are, a Leviathan gathering Terrazine.>"Zat creature is clearly some sort of Zerg orbital command unit. Zee opportunities it poses are immense. Although I cannot fathom why zee Zerg vould vant terrazine. It is possible zat zey are using it to create their own psionic breeds. Commandah, if zis is zee case, I suggest vee intercept zee creature und, at zee very least, kill it."You look to the XO for his recommendation.>"It's big. A Yamato will wound it, and wraith and Valkyrie teams can play interference with it's defenders. We can either kill it outright and pick up whatever pieces don't get sucked into the Gas Giant, or we can attempt to... board it with a science team."Discussion phase begins.
>>26293628XO, boarding it with a science team would be suicide wouldn't it?Nelhav, what benefits would boarding that thing be?
>>26293628No boarding. Just kill. We already have an intact changeling and dead infestor for research opportunities.Also I support Yamato alpha strike, followed by strikecraft assault.Question: Can the Leviathin jump out from where it is, or would it have to put distance between it and the gravity well of the gas giant first?
>>26293655>"No more suicidal than usual, sir. This is a mining operation so I don't expect it's loaded to hell with warrior strains, plus it looks like it's going to attempt to flee from us as soon as it can.">"Commadah, if I can get live samples of the brain tissue, we could understand the Zerg hive mind immeasurably better. Zat is the kind of research zat would result in an outright victory against zee Zerg menace."
>>26293628I suggest killing it outright, boarding it is too risky.
>>26293680Tell me XO, can we limit that thing's movements without killing it?Nelhav, can you tell what that thing uses to communicate with other Zerg with?And if so, do you imagine it's used it already?
>>26293628YamatoPleasePlease just Yamato it...it's...it's literally that easy man.
>>26293680Do we know how to cripple a Leviathan in terms of FTL travel? Because if that wouldn't destroy the intel we want to gather, I'd say a Yamato strike could pretty much make it impossible for the thing to flee. If it wouldn't destroy it, that is.
>>26293701>>26293681>>26293665GUYS.This isn't as much of a suicide mission as you think it is.We've got full squads, go together, punch in, get brain tissue, punch out.All we need to do.We're not splitting into twenty groups, or any bullshit like that.Adjutant is giving us a godamn bone here.
>>26293700>"We can keep it from jumping out, but if we take out it's... Engines. I'm going to call them engines. If we wound it too badly it'll fall into the giant with crew onboard. It's a close balance.">"I can't tell you, Commander. Zhat is why undertaking this mission is so critical. We need to know."
>>26293680Nelhav, do we even have the technology to ATTEMPT research like that? Do we have enough scientists, even?
>>26293712You really think Adjutant is that nice?You haven't been here very long.
>>26293712... if this costs us another hero I'm gonna scream.How about this. We go for a boarding strike but hit it with a Yamato FIRST as that would hopefully weaken it enough so it can't put up a good defence.
>>26293721Nelhav, do you think that thing contains any information on Terrazine?Or just it just picking it up?>>26293739All I've seen is you guys shooting yourselves in the foot instead of walking, so I can't say.
>>26293734>"Of course, Commander. The ships is equipped for far more complicated procedures than even this."
>>26293712No. Just dont.Blow that fucker up with the Yamato cannon, then send in our fighters.
>>26293748Oh no, of course I'm not planning on letting it go unscathed.We're going to shoot it up, then send down a shuttle with some good men.In and out, no more risks than the brain.
>>26293680How exactly is the tendril harvesting the terrazine? If we did board it, would it be filled with terrazine in some way?
>>26293751>"It is... hard to speculate, Commander, as the terrazine is just vespene with additional organic compounds. But the giant also has regular vespene gas available. If I had to guess I would say it's specifically after the terrazine but that is just a theory."
>>26293712fuck that they can research its corpse after we nuke it into ash.
>>26293772There are several tenatacles hanging from the underbelly of the beast into the gas giant's atmosphere, sucking up Terrazine. It's likely being stored in some internal organs. I have no other information at this time.
>>26293794kinda hard to research ash for anything useful
>>26293756...alright then.I propose we make an initial Yamato shot to cripple the beast.If the Leviathan is properly immobilized, we have the valkyries clean up any remaining air units with the support of half our wraiths while the other wraiths provide close air support.We will infiltrate near the head with every dropship, loaded for maximum close combat with at least a marauder or two just in case.If the Leviathan is NOT crippled sufficiently (due to a bad roll), we just kill it dead and deprive the Zerg of the terrazine.Sound good?
>>26293785If you had to estimate, Nelhav, if we did do something as crazy as boarding the creature, what would it do? It's a zerg creature itself, isn't it? I doubt it would just let us waltz in and slice a piece of it's brain off.
>>26293810I dig it
>>26293817>"Zhink of zee creature as you vould any other, and zhink of us like a virus. It vill, no doubt, have an immune system, likely Zerg warrior breeds such as zee hydralisk und Zergling."
>>26293810Yep, that sounds good.
afaik Leviathans can shoot acid which deals 500 damage ingame. That means they probably have that acid stored and can use it to get rid of invaders. Lets not board that thing. Lets just blow it up with Yamatos and everything we have.
>>26293849This sounds pretty much like what i guesssed here: >>26293857
>>26293849And what about changelings and other, more insidious zerg strains? Would it be possible to detect if there's a broodmother nearby, directing operations? A guiding intelligence makes the zerg more dangerous.
>>26293857"This is a mining operation so I don't expect it's loaded to hell with warrior strains, plus it looks like it's going to attempt to flee from us as soon as it can."Yeah, bullshit.
>>26293849Is there a way to...drain the uh... fuck it Meta shit: Can we drain all it's energy so it can't acid blast us?
>>26293867>"I am afraid you are our only psionic detection, Commander. You vill haff to tell me."Oh. Right.You sense the Leviathan. You sense fear. You sense it fleeing. You sense it telling something that you are here. Specifically "The Dead One's Ship."You sense no other sentient presences. Not even overlords.
>>26293901dead one? Thats an interesting moniker.
>>26293901>"I am afraid you are our only psionic detection,>you are our only psionic detection,WHAT ABOUT THOSE RADARS HUH?
>>26293884Scanners do not indicate that the Leviathan is evolved to use bio-plasmid discharges. However, given how little information we have, I have no way of knowing commander.
>>26293901>"The Dead One's Ship"How cute. Can we shoot it now?
>>26293928Scanners function as an object detection system, Commander. They are unable to difference between psi-sensitive materials.
>>26293857>>26293865Even Zerg aren't stupid enough to vent their body with Acid.
>>26293628After this combat action, we need to establish a base here. Depriving the swarm of Terrazine is critically important. Then we need to head to New Alb, we can't let the new republican government fall. Also, is it just me or does Charlie sound like she wants to be a spectre too?
Alright, let's do this:>>26293810But specify to have the yamato blast target the engines specifically.
>>26293936>No way of knowingMan I hate uncertainties...it's like, all we ever get around here.But fine, if it REALLY is JUST a mining 6000 ton Zerg spaceship, then let's go slice it's brain up after we blow a hole in it's ass to render it's FTL farts useless
>>26293960Someone was in the organic ship space travel thread?
>>26293960I dislike you, but I approve of how you phrased that.
>>26293901Calling for reinforcement? Fuck that Kill it then get as much tissue sample as possible, mine the gas, see enemy bug the fuck out.No riskHigh rewardsFucking this don't fucking board it, zerg organism is entirely meant to fuck you up
>>26293987Actually, I made that observation long ago when I first saw Mutalisks and Overlords flying in space in the gameMy first thought was "Wait, you can't fly with wings in space. They must be farting across the sky."
>>26294009At no point was calling for reinforcements ever sense, Commander.It is escaping and telling something where you are, but it is not calling for reinforcements specifically.
>>26294016I think overlords use psionics to move specifically. Overlord speed is them farting.
>>26294016Overlords are full of light gasses and propel themselves via telekinesis, Commander.Mutalisks just use wings in space. Additional research is requested.
>>26294041Can we make BBQ muta wings if we have any spare mutas?
>>26294029Which means that irrespectively of whether or not we kill it, it has already alerted whoever is on the other end of the line. Unless we can jam the psionic link somehow? Goddamn, once we get out of here we need to get us a psi disruptor schematic.
>>26294041>>26294031>OverlordsCrap, I meant Broodlords actually. They're sorta shaped like a plane.
The Leviathan is leaving the gas giant's orbit, Commander. Action is required.>1 Yamato the thing to hell. Collect what's left.>2 Boarding actions with all dropships to one location. Regular fire support.>3 Boarding actions with Yamato support. >4 Allow it to escape, do not engage any enemy forces at all, as they're all retreating.
>>26294059Just a guess, but that would probably jam us too.
>>26294029Don't know what it's callingI mean you really want to meet it if it comes to us?
Cripple it, board it, bug out if there's more than zerglings and hydralisks, grab us a big brain otherwise.Let's do this.
I imagine thisWe board itThen it jumps into its little hyperspace portal and take our crew with it
>>26294195>Infested ghost quest.
>>26294082Might want to bring SCVs and Goliaths too, so we can harvest shit and have extra firepower. Reminder that we lost our hero Hercules so we're down to medivacs
maybe we should look to purchase another couple Hercules eventually. I'm gonna miss the Falcon though.
>"XO, wound that thing. I'm taking two teams down there.">"Aye aye, sir."You head to the docking bays. Team deployments have already been prepared.Delta Team:DeltaHenderson (Hero Marine)2x Marine1x Firebat2x MedicCharlie Team:CharlieBarney (Hero Firebat)Jessie (Hero Medic)2x Marine1x MedicDr. Nelhav>"XO to weapons control. Fire main cannon. Cripple enemy target."The read sphere forms in front of the ship, then launches itself through the middle of the Leviathan and into the gas giant. The creature's guts spill out and are sucked into the massive gravity well, and it begins to spiral towards the Atmosphere. I have calculated the Leviathan's trajectory. You have 12 minutes until you are too deep in the gravity well for Recovery, Commander.>Loading...
>>26294386Wait a second, we want only 1 team.AND NELHAV IS COMING WITH US?
>>26294386AdjutantDo we have any sort of gravity beam?If not how about some hooks to tow it out into space?
>>26294413Both teams share one LZ, you are sending both dropships.And the Doctor does not trust marines to collect proper samples.
>>26294386>Last Thread: "You lost a lot of heros, but at least you have your hero Scientist, how would you even fuck that up and lose her, oh god"You...bastard. Can't she wait behind, or something?! Damn it, 12 minutes isn't no time at all.
>>26294423The Daluke does not have sufficient cabling to properly change the course of the Leviathan.
>>26294427XO, Nelhav, is twelve minutes really enough time for this?
>>26294386No no no no no no no no no. No.I want only ONE team. Two is too risky.
>>26294427One day, we really should make an automated probe like what the protoss have with observers. At least we can scout a bit before going somewhere.
>>26294427>>26294433Aw crap..fine.But she better stay safe damn it.
>>26294435XO, can we try to carve up this Leviathan some more, maybe then we can cable it.
>>26294446I would really like this a lot.
>>26294438>"No idea, sir.">"Vee should have plenty of time, Commander. Collecting the samples will only take a few seconds."
>>26294386We need more dropships.>stostow dissectedAlso apparently the name of this Leviathan is Stostow.
... welp lets get this trainwreck over with.
>>26294467>Vee should have plenty of timeWe're doomed...
>all those votes to board the goddam thingyou people are the equivalent of a retarded kid that keeps sticking forks into electrical outlets
AdjutantHow about this thenWe make a fuck huge explosion next to the damn thing and hope it launches back into space.MICHEAL BAY EXPLOSIONI really don't like the fact that we're so close to the gas giant
...I wonder if the doctor would mind trying out our new camo suit.
The Leviathan's head is easily the size of a Command Center. Acid drools from it's mouth in the Zero gravity, and your dropships maneuver past the slowly billowing green clouds of liquid. >"Star Reaper coming in low. Package is away. Enjoy your opening, ground teams."The Valkyrie sails past, followed by several missiles. The frigate pulls up, and the missiles blow a hole in the creature's carapace.Both dropships enter the wound, and you land on the fleshy interior of the Leviathan.>Loading...
>>26294519What the fuck do you want to do? Just sit in the base and wait for the Zerg to swarm us at home? We need research data. It's up to Adjutant's dice in the end anyway, it doesn't matter what plans we make, if he decides to fuck us over it will happen. We only get to decide HOW.
>>26294524You do not have sufficient explosive ordinance at this time.
>>26294532It will feel like wearing NOTHING AT ALL
>>26294447What's her loadout? If she's wearing less than Titan armour, we're fucked. I expect mostly zerglings, drones, hydralisks and Gods forbid, banelings or roaches
>>26294524The level of retarded in this idea is too high to comprehend.
>>26294540AdjutantAny sign of zerg warrior strains on board and we evac the fuck out you hear me?
>>26294556She better be wearing at least a CMC
>>26294540Put your rape faces on, gentlemen. Also since I will be leaving soon to work I shall drop a few pieces of advice for your consideration:A. THE FLASHBANGS DO NOTHING.B. We have Astral Projection. Don't know what's behind that closed oriface? Project ourselves beyond it.
>>26294584What if what is behind the closed orifice is poop?
>>26294575We have 12 mins and two combat teams, I think we'll be fine.We aren't taking on near-impossible odds grabbing BC schematics that we don't need and can't use - no need to be super cautious anon.
>>26294584ThisMan I can NOT keep forgetting that scouting ability.
>"Didn't know you were a Medic, Doc.">"I am not typically a medical doctor, Jessica, but I fear I am better at it than I am viff a gun."You step forward through the hallways. Creep runs thick on every surface. >"Boss, can we maybe just -shoot- Zerg from now on? I'm gonna have to spend hours cleanin' this gunk off my gear.">"Zis is amazing. Zese capillaries provide motor function to zee lesser strains. By use of muscle contraction I imagine zat-">"Contact! get down, Doc!"You turn around to the sound of the C-14 fire. A swarm of Zerglings is approaching from the rear. Your single-file squad is in an uncomfortable position.>"Commadah, vee must move forward, zis capillary connects directly to zee neural netvork, und vee cannot fight zhem in closed spaces!">"Move and shoot, Squad!"You're at the front so you lead the way as the Zerglings chase the rear. >"Man down!">"Keep moving Dana, that poor bastard's already dead."The vein opens up to a large chamber. Hanging at the center of it is a large mass of tissue that you assume is the brain, given that it's so grooved. Several neural bundles connect every which way, to the walls, ceiling, and floor.Your men exit into the room and form a concave firing arc. The Zerglings aren't any match for them once they're able to bring all the guns. The remaining Zerg have no choice but to fall back.>"Zis is amazing. I vill need several seconds to collect zee samples."You look around the room. You don't see any other entrances but as far as you know that could easily change. Nelhav climbs one of the bundles and starts hacking away at the brain. That's when you hear it roar.>"XO to Delta team. I have detected movement with subsurface scans. Everything's coming for you. Get ready to hold that position.">"We have Air superiority yet, XO?">"Cleaning up, sir. We can get anything you need down there."What are your orders, Commander?
>>26294732Have the battlecruiser calculate our aproximate location and have it rip everything around us to shreds
>>26294732Can we set up any traps?What's our equipment?Firebats at the front.
>>26294732Detected movement, huh? Can the Wraiths or Daluke accurately track the movement and fill it full of lasers?Also tell us which direction it's coming from (Delta can try to psy sense as well) and then deploy ourselves in a firing arc in that direction with the firebats to the fore.
>>26294771Also use psi radar to see whats around us and after that we use astral projection to look for any possible entrances and call in fire support from air units on concentrated zerg forces
>>26294732Have bayonets ready and keep all guns pointed toward the entrance. Have Delta use her astral projection to go around and looking for any new tunnels that may be forming or old tunnels collapsing as well as relaying what type of forces are headed at us.
>>26294771>>26294810I completely support this motion.
Firebats on either side of the doormarines\medics behind them, make it a killing zone. Delta should cloak and be prepared to launch i-rad and hellfire grenades when the enemies become too concentrated. Otherwise she should snipe and provide intelligence.
>>26294810>>26294825These two - I second.
>>26294732>Anything we needA dropship of firebats and medics would be lovely. Maybe a few marines or marauders, depending on the type of Zerg that are approaching. Non-warrior strains, so probably not Roaches...Hydra have good range though, so we should make sure to help snipe them.
>>26294771That would be excessively dangerous, Commander. >>26294782You do not have any mines to set up traps.The Nomad is capable of construction.SCVs are capable of construction.You have enough time to request additional units before the Zerg force arrives.>>26294809Firing on the ship you are currently in violates all standard safety protocols, Commander. Issue that order at your own risk.>>26294810You still sense no additional psionic lifeforms.Astral projection through muscle tissue does not reveal anything relevant at this time. If it closed and can open you cannot determine it this way.
>>26294864>SCVs are capable of construction.Alright, can we get some bunkers/turrets up here?Prepare for some hellfire grenades and whatnot too.
>>26294864Oh, we have some SCVs with us? Maybe we can make a bunker? Unless creep is being a dick
>>26294864How fast can the nomad make autoturrets?
>>26294894I think it may take too long to do that
>>26294864Still a good idea to have the battlecruiser know our approximate location and have it fire surgical strikes onto incoming zerg forcesAlso fucking watch out underneath us. If the floor even as much as vibrate move the fuck away from the vibrating area
>>26294902Bunker's build fast. less then a minute infact.
gotta remember we have less then twelve minutes before this thing goes into the gas giant. Bunkers might take too long.However the Nomad's autoturrets should work and we DID get that upgrade to 'em.
>>26294885>Building bunkers>Within a zerg >With creep everywhere>getting sucked in less than 11 minutes by a gas giant>Good idea
>>26294917No guys its alright, Bunkers like most Terran defense structures build really fast. Less then a minute, maybe 30 seconds, or so? I forget exactly.
>>26294913>>26294898It takes 40 seconds to construct a bunker, while a Nomad can place a prebuilt auto-turret instantly. However, the Nomad can't reach the brain chamber, but can reach the dropship LZ.
>>26294925>Creepthat's the only worry I have right now.
>>26294927that's in game. This quest may be somewhat different.
If we have time to build bunkers and then get the SCVs out before we get swarmed, do so.Have the Nomad plant auto-turrets.Does Henderson have any suggestions? perhaps ramming some siege Tanks or goliaths in here?
>>26294934Have the Nomad standing by on our escape ship to help the evac then. We'll need those turrets to help us escape.For one, a Bunker would be fantastic Adjutant. Tell me we've discovered the secret of building ontop of Creep please?
alright, get a team with SCVs and escorts in here.
>>26294934Have the nomad set up a defensive perimeter of auto turrets around the LZ.
>>26294934well then I would have the nomad place auto-turrets at the LZ
>>26294957Yeah, this sounds good.Combine it with >>26294964 >>26294962
>>26294934Can an SCV carry an auto-turret? If yes, have some carry them into the brain chamber.If no, place some turrets at the LZ anyway for when we have to evac.
>>26294978thats a hella good idea, make it so the SCV's can carry their own defence if they get ambushed on the way.
>>26294962Structures cannot be placed on Creep, Commander.The Nomad is able to detect creep tumors, however.
>>26294978SCVs and Infantry units can relocate auto turrets.
>>26294989Wonderful! Can it point us at some tumors so that we may shoot them and perhaps clear path for a bunker or two? or simply to deny the Zerg the benefit of creep.
>>26295001I guess it is time for some autoturret tower defense?
>>26294989Damn it, then we can't build a bunker in the brain chamber...we should get out of here quickly once the doctor is done.Have the Nomad set up turrets and kill the creep in the LZ. If this will be as fast as I picture, we may not need a bunker...Will it be fast?
>>26295001How many avaliable auto-turrets do we have? I want half of them in the brain chamber and half in the LZ.Also if the dropships have any space avaliable after we decide specific units, fill that space with marines and firebats.
>>26295001Oh nice, that will be helpful too...
>>26295037The Nomad will be able to place 4 Auto Turrets during a single deployment, if no other abilities are used.
HENDERSON. CHARLIE.OFFER PERTINENT SUGGESTIONS.
Don't the SCVs and nomad need escorts? Is the LZ secure? Will the zerg that's barrelling down on us redirect some of the swarm to kill off the nomad as soon as it touches down?
>>26295071yes this get some NPC input
>>26295071THIS!Our NPCs are always smarter than us.
>>26295071AYE.NPCS, HELP US
>>26295071>"Boss, we get us some auto-turrets and we'll be sitting pretty, but we can use marines. Don't forget about Drop-pods, just going to have to use Valkyries for Evac, too, otherwise it'll be a one-way trip.">"It's probable that more tunnels are going to open as this thing dies and loses muscle control, so we can expect to get hit from more directions as we hold this location. We're also going to need defense both here and at the LZ."
>>26295071>>26295123Ask Nelhav for advise if she isn't too busy hacking.
>>26295123Alright then, idea NPCs:What if we clear the creep at the LZ, build a bunker there with a SCV for repair, and bring the auto turrets to the brain chamber?
>>26295123oh ya, drop pods.I say flood the place with as many as the valks can support
>>26295145>"I am not a military strategist, commander. Though zis may be relevant: terrazine is highly explosive."
>>26295170... can we detect where the terrazine is being stored?
>>26295170We're near the brain aren't we?The tendrils shouldn't be anywhere near us, UNLESS THE BRAIN IS FEEDING OFF OF IT.Also, I meant to ask about the tunnels and Zerg reactions to us hacking it's brain apart.
>>26295170Would just like to say this: Let's NOT blow up the corpse when we're done. If it's spiraling towards the gas giant, that'd be like lighting...well...one of Henderson's farts
>>26295170Doctor, I assume you've got the sample already, and just as a hypothetical, would destroying what's left of the Leviathan's brain completely affect the zerg onboard in any way? In terms of combat effectiveness, specifically?
>>26295202>"Like I said, Commander. It's an immune system. Do you know zee medical purpose of swelling? An infected area is flooded with blood in an attempt to drown an infection in white blood cells. I do not zhink I need to explain zat particular analogy.">>26295186You do not have the ability to detect Terrazine from other inert matter at this time.
>>26295123Spread out and watch out for vibrating movement on the walls and floors. Get away from them. Have eyes scanning every single crevice in the room.Adjutant does the battlecruiser know our location?Also bring in as much turrets as possible and shoot the creep tumors close byAlso do our astral projection down the hallway we came out of and see what kind of greetings we're gonna be expecting
>>26295243In which case, ask the good doctor if she believes Terrazine is being stored anywhere near the brain, if not, then we could try and use it to our advantage.
>>26295237>"Zee Zerg will go feral without leadership, Commandah. Zat is all I can say for certain.">>26295237>"I still need time to collect zee samples, commandah. Zee sooner you stop asking me questions zee sooner I can finish my vork."
>>26295243But yeah how does a bunker back at the LZ with SCV support and Turrets at the Brain chamber sound?
>>26295268>"I cannot even begin to guess vere it is stored or used, Commandah. Zat is zee entire point of zis mission - to determine zee Zerg relationship to Terrazine."
Alright I think we have enough to make a decision. Which is clear the LZ of creep, setup bunkers with drop pods supplying escorts to the SCVs to transport auto turrets here to aid us. We have lots of troops, lets use them.
>>26295294When you're carrying explosive materials doctor, do you put them near your brain?
>>26295319Let's hope this works..
Right, as soon as the doctor is finished with collecting the sample, we burn the brain to cinders. The zerg will lose coherency and go feral, allowing us to extract without coordinated resistance.
>>26295348I just realized something. It is a giant brain controlling the local forces, we are psionic, and it is afraid.
>>26295321>"If I am using zose materials on my brain because they increase my psionic potential, perhaps I vould. Zat is, after all, zee point of -your- Terrazine stores, remember?"
>>26295243>>26295294WHOA WHOA WHOACan't we just open a hole up on this bitch and have a wraith carry it out?
>>26295170oh god please tell me we can burn this thing from the inside outbecause that would be awesome.
>>26295387If this thing was subject to Terrazine I imagine it would have some offensive psionic powers.I heard it calling for another ship, but if it truly was subject to Terrazine shouldn't it be able to fry us all right now?A specialized Psionic Zerg is what this one is going to be feeding, I'll bet.
>>26295394>"Commander if you suggest trying to pop a balloon full of gasoline with a lit match one more time I am going to revoke command privileges and appoint Henderson to mission leader."
>>26295408Hang on pyroanons, don't set anything on fire in here. It's hurdling towards a Terrazine filled gas giant.That would be veeeeery bad
>>26295445That actually might be for the best.
>>26295445We should try it one day XO, I prefer being used~
Well it's pretty obvious the brain isn't full of terrazine RIGHT NOW because if it were, our gunfire and flamer use when securing the room would have set it off. The question is, will it vent into this room if we shoot the brain.

>>26295579At least it isn't Terrazine banelings.
>>26295607You don't think the leviathan is harvesting terrazine to make those, do you?
>>26295607HAHA OH WOW
>>26295618>>26295619Perhaps even Terrazine scourges.
The drop pods land at the LZ and several marines and SCVs disembark. Two auto-turrets are placed there, and the other 2 reach you without incident. >"Reinforcements are here and we've got a bunker goin' down, boss. Just a matter of time, now."You stay near the brain itself, the long range to any wall will make it easier for you to snipe any random openings. The firebats spray their flames over the floors, clearing the creep for the bunkers. Minutes pass before the bulk of the Zerg make their way across the giant creature to the brain at the far end.You hear them long before they come. The thrumming of immeasurable claws. The beating of countless wings. The slither of untold stomachs.>Loading...

Hey Adjutant. How about we stop playing as Delta and start playing as Whiskey. Just going around being a fucking terrifying badass all over the place and being actually competent.
>>26295686I think you missed the part where, wherever we go, the retardedness follows.

The comforting sound of auto-turrets. You'll need to remember that they exist in the future. They don't overheat. They don't reload. They don't know fear. They just kill.>"Targets left! We've got another opening!">"Firebats repositioning! Medic! Medic!">"Stop drop and roll. Always makes me laugh.">"You want a piece of me, Zerg!?"Spines pelt the walls of the room, several hit the brain as well, doing more harm than good. The beast's psionic presence slowly fades until you feel it die. Slowly, more and more tunnels open. Between your defensive positions and reflexes a single Zergling doesn't make it through.>"It iz done, Commandah! I can't get anything else. Vee need to leave!">"Pull back! Get everyone to the LZ!"The bunker unloads and marines pile through the exit. >"Man down!">"Lost another marine!">"Jessie! Shit, boss we've got to go back!"Henderson rushes past you. The Medic's being cut off by the overwhelming numbers. You follow him and take the wounded Medic by one arm.>"Can you walk, Jess?">"Don't think so, Henderson. Hand me a gun and let's get out of here."He hands her one of his two C-14's, and spits out a cigar stub. You cover them as the last person out, watching in futility as the auto-turrets and bunker are overwhelmed.As you reach the transports several Zerglings are clamoring over the top of it. You take potshots as you jump after it, grabbing on to the landing strut at the last minute.You hang on tightly, and radio the Daluke.>"Ground teams are free, XO.">"Copy that. All batteries, firing solution on Bandit actual."The streams of lasers shift from the zipping aerial battle over the Leviathan to the beast itself. Several explosions rip it open as the terrazine catches fire. The flaming husk sinks into the gas giant's atmosphere, starting a massive firestorm on the planet's surface. Massive being relative, it's but a little dot compared to the overall planet. You pull yourself into the Dropship.
>>26295879Okay see guys?Relatively awesome, no one lost, nothing happened.Now, imagine what we would have gotten if we just blasted it.THAT BEING SAID, XO, SCAN THE FUCKING SYSTEM, DO WE GOT ZERG INCOMING?
>>26295879FUCKING CHECK FOR CHANGELINGS
>>26295879>Set fire to the planet...wait...did we just screw ourselves out of more Terrazine?
>>26295928Also quarantine the entire hanger as we land. Vents and everything sealed. We are gonna be thorough when we search our dropship Never again will we have zerg infiltrators
Total Casualties: 4 Marines.Acquired research: Leviathan Neurological samples.Air support is eliminating remaining Zerg hostiles.The Nomad has begun construction of orbital vespene refineries. Estimated cost is 1,000 minerals.Additional defenses:Fighter Hangar: 500 Minerals / 500 GasMissile Turrets: 600 MineralsLong-Range Sensors: 125 Minerals / 100 Gas
>>26295928Quarantine everyone aside from the Doctor and us.And go through checks with them.>>26295938If it only comes out of one place on the planet, yes.
>>26295928There are no Overseers to produce changelings, Commander.>>26295938It's a gas giant, Commander. Although you have started a massive firestorm it is physically impossible to mine and burn all Terrazine and vespene available within the next 3,789,000 years.
>>26295954How much Gas do we have at the moment? Definately construct the Missile Turrets, but lets always have enough gas for three jumps or so.
>>26295951While that may be a little extreme, I would like to make sure we clean ourselves off. Decontaminate the ship and check everyone's vitals and blood. Make sure they're who they say they are.
>>26295954Right, definately make those turrets.The other things can wait until we get some gas in.
>>26295968We have 90 gas after purchasing gas for jumps on Murric, commander.We can leave the Nomad with available resources, and once gas production begins it can finish defenses.
>>26295968You know, we should have an 'emergency gas for jumps only' store.
>>26295954That should be acceptable then...unless the Zerg REALLY want that Terrazine, I don't reckon they'll bring another Leviathan to waste on this place.
>>26295938IT IS A SMALL FIREWHY IS EVERYONE IN THIS QUEST ILLITERATE AND A MORON?
>>26295954Sensors first, we need to keep watch. Then turrets and hangar.Check whether the zerg have been making a move on Murica or elsewhere in the sector. Since she knows where we are, the broodmama could strike somewhere else where we are weak.
>>26295964Ah, alright, I'm over worrying then. Good then...good. That mission went well. Yay
Nope, not leaving this place until we are sure that the zerg aren't coming immediately.>>26295996The Daluke can cover sensors, I think missile turrets are more important and... well... we can only afford turrets right now.
>>26295954Build the missile turrets immediately. Once we have enough vespene, build the sensors. Then the hangar so that we can have a permanent defense force here.
>>26295993I was worried that a big fiery giant would burn up a lot of gas down there, yes. Sorry. Just making sure.
...IS THIS KIND F SHIT WHAT YOU IDIOTS GET UP TO WHEN I LEAVE FOR A WEEEKND?FUCK.also, does anyone have a link for quest 27?>26294732Blast the fuck out of it to try and vent/kill zerg in the capillaries.Also, consider falling back INTO the narrow space, firebats on each end, kneeling, with a marine behind covering.Other marines pass him loaded rifles when his is dry.minimize the number advantage by denying space to use it.

>>26296852Lets get Francis M. SingletonGotta get a research base going on.
>>26296852House. With her experience deploying ground troops, she should hopefully be able to erect a defensible position and route out zerg forces on the planet. Give her enough resources and supplies to get started with a command center, barracks, and a few barracks, along with several companies of marines. There aren't exactly humans here to recruit from, so we need a solid defense to start.Have our base(s) on Murric start a recruiting drive for people to come here to work at our compound. Once we start getting a trickle of Murrican workers, we can start to really expand here and wipe out whatever zerg forces are present. Hopefully, of course.
>>26296852Theresa should this base commander. Seems reasonable.Does our XO or someone else have a suggestion?
>>26296852Gonna say House as well.
>>26296914>and a few bunkers
Gotta agree House seems to look like a good idea.
>>26296852I'm going to have to go with House for this base.
>>26296915>"No wrong choice, Dee. This planet's out so it's not going to have to deal with more than stray Zerglings, might be a good place for a research base."
>>26296914>murric>workersLand of opportunity, and it just uilt anew industry. we CANNOT compete with them.Call for workers form new kilario and offer to transport them if need be.Kilario is full of people desperate to get out and go anywhere at all.
Voting begins for base commander. >1 Theresa D. House>2 Kevin E. Lester>3 Francis M. Singleton
>>26296964hmm, she has a point... still House is a good choice to mop up those zerglings. We can assign her some scientists\engineers once they are established.
>>26296988>3 Francis M. Singleton
House has been appointed as base commander.We have dispatched 6 SCVs and 8 marines with enough resources for 1 command center and 1 barracks.
>>26297153Can we improve the base?
Well, shall we hang around for a little bit to make sure they are alright? Or immediately decide on our next destination.
>>26297167That is the entire point of appointing the base commander. It is her job, now.((And not yours because you spend 3 threads arguing about SCV counts despit everyone being wrong anyway.))
>>26297167No. It will forever be stuck with one CC and barracks, even after it is actually built.
((I'm ending the thread here today. We'll resume again tomorrow.))
>>26297241I don't like that picture.You're implying she's comingI DON'T WANT HER TO COME
>>26297241Also for the record wanted to say I appreciated the Starmap picture. Helps out a bit.
>>26297259>not wanting her to comeThe fuck kind of man are you
