To be fair it's a calculated gesture in my mind. You guarantee the death of one hostage (as the pirate calls your bluff) but then they should just engage normally.

And calculated gestures are the best gestures for a Palantor.

B. This is a land grab! There are folks down there ahead of us. Unacceptable! Getting comms up is good but not worth our personal attention and our Bastion backdoors eliminate need to hack the hardware going out. Hire this one out and get planetside stat.

They're animal level intelligence designed for shipboard terror operations. Set up a nice clear killing field and knock on the door. Then murder 'em as they are genetically compelled to rush us. Expect flanking.

There probably are control systems deeper in the building that shouldn't be grenaded/shot, but the outer rooms Larry-2 scouted were pretty robust. What you've seen look like it was built to last, probably why its still semi-functional after a century.

If they're solid enough then our "knock" should be an incendiary through the upper window.

O Kudzu No reason. Also acceptable are Tarrasqueville and Kaijuberg.

Also one of our first improvement things should be to bump that Mine stat up one so we start getting energy as well.

To be clear, is the cube a teleport destination or a teleport projector? Or both? Cause even with our qualifications I'm leery of carrying around a backdoor that might flood out literally innumerable killbots at any moment.

Can we put the facility in a lunar orbit? I don't imagine it will be high traffic in the early days so that's a little extra harder to find.

Lamarr repairing the comm net is only a problem if she finds something that talks back, and it looks like all of the other facilities are shut down... unless they're just waiting for a third terraformer before purging the whole planet. That would be bad.

Keep in mind mechanoids were created from human tech. A repaired human comm array would... raise certain flags we probably don't want raised.
