Plasma multi-system online, also you somehow have like 4x the amount of cargo right now, I assume we just tied all those carcasses and alien explosives to the roof

------------------------

Alright recap, just finished a mission at warehouse 5 to root out alien scum.

Currently headed home, our enemies are the aliens, Cult of Sirius, Solmine, and Extropians.
Our allies are the gov, cops, Transtellar shipping, Sensovision, and the criminal gang Osiron.
Superdynamics manufacturing and Nutrivend are somehow unfriendly to us for some reason. Every other org is neutral.

Ok, I think Dirtiest Harry, SilvergunSuperman, Discernably Turgid, and Stoner Sloth are the additional new recruits? Lemme know if I missed anyone. We have just enough room to get them fit in, might need to buy more bases.

We're 92% of the way to the next alien mission and have basically no air support. Gonna be a hard fight under dangerous alien conditions, and that's not even counting ingress or egress, which could easily become a clusterfuck.

Next step is to get the rookies to base, implant cybernetic space drugs for whoever volunteers, get everyone equipped, and by then we should be ready to launch.

So far we've been pretty lucky. The aliens haven't been able to assume control of any organizations, but they got sort of close a few times.



Right now Lifetree is the worst off but it's not a big deal imo, we're gonna go ahead and ignore it.

Yeah this is not a problem.

Our biologists have made a breakthru:


ALRIGHT THIS IS IT

We have 3 transport ships, and nothing else. No serious antiair systems, nothing. So, we need volunteers for a probable suicide mission to check out the alien food chamber. If you get shot down in the alien dimension, there isn't gonna be a way back home.

On top of this, our transports are still damaged from the last mission. They're not even close to repaired, in fact, they're totally hosed up. One is still pretty good tho, so

Launch dimension assault?
A: Scramble all craft
B: Cram everyone into the one good boat and launch
C: Wait until all ships are up and running, then send multiple squads

Hell yes!!! (Apologies to user Hell Yeah if that sashays a little too closely to trademark infringement .) No longer a prisoner of my puny biologist-appropriate meat prison, I am now capable of dying in a crash in an alien dimension, having vast sections of carelessly detonated building fall on me, or failing to shoot a slowly approaching alien at a distance that violates CDC guidelines for nCovid-19.

Why is nobody investigating whether aliens are the ones that engineered the virus??? Let’s get ‘em!!!

So happy to have a slammin’ codpiece and to be part of the sanctioned rabble! Now that I’m newly enlisted for fightin’, I just take orders (and, maybe, enjoy the hazing rituals I never experienced at summer camp.)

I prefer to die in combat, but in these times nobody is really getting their death of choice, are they?

Did we ever capture a UFO 5? If we’re stuck with just the transports I better stay in engineering so we can rebuild faster when the existing trio gets vaporized.

Option C is the least bad. Be ready to make some immediate u-turns back into the portal if the alien fleet is concentrated too strongly around it.
