As everyone stands out in the AC airfield, the thought of how abnormal this is really hits you.The mothership is gone, but every pilots desire to go to space is still stopped by the now automated defence network the vannai left behind.As you all wait around doing your last minute rituals, the command agent for the day walks u-oh it's tommy and Editi.Tommy: "Hello everyone! Now you all may be thinking "Hey Tommy, isn't it a commander that is supposed to brief us?""Well you're right, but I offered to do it for him... You see there is that nasty defense network that you are being sent to blow up right?"Editi nods and speaks. "Well Tommy learned a bit more about Vannai automated networks recently and made a bypass to control the network."Tommy: "Right! If you can get close, you can keep all the people that would like a defence network happy!"Editi then frowns and becomes serious. "The issue is you all need to get to the 4 sensor satellites that feed the targeting info for the two beam satellites."Tommy: "Which means you would have to contest twice as much satellites while also avoiding being hit by the satellites you can just blow up."Editi: "At least the smaller point defense satellites near each kind are less in number about the sensor satellites."Tommy then smiles. "But that's all for you to pick to fight when you get up there! For now..." He rises up his forarm to bring up a wrist screen."I'll just give you all the bypass virus to put into the sensor satellites when you breach their armor. The virus will tell you what you need to do if you don't have hacking tools."Editi shows a grim smile. "Think of it as the old world game methods of a 'quick time event.'"As she chuckles, Tommy goes on with his smile. "Any questions?">POST 1/2>Game will start in 70 min!
>Mission requires EC 2+3. No exceptions.>This requirement is partly why the wait time is an hour.>There are two objectives where there is a mission complete with one completion:1. Hack or destroy the 4 sensor satellites.2. Hack or destroy the 2 laser beam satellites .>While it is impossible to fully escape the sensor network; however it is possible via the small jamming equipment you where given to escape detection after you position yourselves to ride out an orbit to the next satellite.>Post 2/2

>>1832726>>1832728>>1832736>>1832747All looks good.Tommy smiles. "Just like I know you guys. Not asking questions and ready to go."Editi points to the antimatter rail cannon which has been mounted with a small rocket: "We will be sending you up on a rocket that will take the brunt of a blast until you get close to either a sensor or killer satellite. You'll have to make a choice when we strap you in. Otherwise you will all be sent to the middle of either, which will take more time to get to any satellite."Tommy: "Remember the jamming equipment will only keep you hidden when you stay still. And if you get hit just try to stay still until you start reentering or heal."Tommy and Editi both continue to smile at you as they say: "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9uKIeamPi2Y"The crew then lead you to the payload straps that will hold you in place until the ship breaches atmo. They tell you again the payload will shield you from a single blast, after that it's useless. They exit, the countdown begins, and a prompt comes out asking for a target.>Choose a point in space to fire. Since all sats are at an even latitude with the equator and you don't, It would be hard to correct if a target isn't picked.

The ship starts shaking from the start as the engine keeps momentum, then as it starts to breach atmo it turns to deburn to slow down for a intercept with the southwest sat. Then moments later as the 100 Gs turn to 0, the pod explodes as it's hit by a laser the size of a fortress! You all see your heading right to the sensor sat at about 100 meters per second, but since you have flight you have nothing to worry about. You can't tell what the killer sat will be aiming at, but at your spot, only a single sat can target you. >You are close enough to act towards the sensor sat, but movement will be basically leveling out your speed and entering orbiting velocity. >Basically you can act in regards to the satellite. >MISSION START!>You are all in the b at the moment.

You also learn that the main CPU core of the sat has 4 cores, and 4 control success are needed to take complete control with the TE virus.>Marauder now has full HP due to max rec

You hope nobody saw that.>>1852535You think it would be impossible to miss at that close of range... And your right. You almost somehow slip and miss with your railgun, but as turtle backs off for a moment to re balance, you fire your weapons into the almost removed armor. When the smoke clears, you see a medium suit sized hole that is halfway to the terminal (with the armor piece at the bottom that made the hole), has no drones in it, AND also only the wires to burn and cut though. However any more ballistic weaponry could damage the terminal.>>1852545As you finish healing, you notice the drones are moving away from the slowly closing hole to the reactor you cut into.

It then falls off and heads back into the sat.>>1852630As you watch the sludge core move oddly, you believe you the core has been packed with so much energy that it has been made unstable, and that the reactor parts where keeping it stable and in place. As the drones try to repair the parts you notice the core becomes more stable with each repair. However behind you your radio sparks. "Attention suit inside our satellite. This is your only chance to leave the now Reddit's (or experiment as some call us) property before you are destroyed utterly."
