    It's good that Lopez is getting rich, but why is no one buying my book, "
    101 Stories of things I would have done if I were a spy but totally didn't because I'm not"?

    That's obviously because we find the notion that you might be a spy, even a theoretical one, to be utterly ridiculous.

    I'm sorry but that's how it is. Your very presence just screams reliable, down to earth stability.

    Well, one for each member of the active strike team.

    They do get to keep it when they retire, though.

    No, no. They just pull an Imperium on you.

    You work from birth to death, and then your dead body is used for spare parts, both organs for the living, and your general body for incorperation into a mindless labour drone.

    Hmmm... can't we take advantage of that somehow? Like, tell her to follow through with that threat, and then start selling to the aliens?

    Default Second verse, same as the first (Chrysalid's a punk, Snakemen are runts)

    Right. First mission against Snakemen battleships?

    Success. No other way to put it. Of course, no time to rest on our laurels.

    "Alright men. Back on the Skyranger. Any cowardice will be met with a fate worse than death."

    "But we just got back!"

    "Had to give Cubey some new toys. You all get to go hunt snakemen twice in one day. Aren't you lucky."

    BRC coughed slightly, then muttered something about the oppression of the workers. Communists.

    Well, looks like some people were about to learn why X-COM's territory is legally classified as a dictatorship.

    As we landed, I noticed a smaller craft taking off. Worth remembering. Also, that meant the most valuable crewmembers of the ship would be gone, meaning a total slaughter is a viable strategy.

    Lopez took out the minimal resistance outside the ship, while Copper, Trazoi, and I headed in to scout. Tengu, BRC, and Slaanesh were on radio contact in case any Snakes tried to pull something funny.

    After several rousing minutes of laser based gunplay, ducking plasma, and a lot of very creative swearing from both sides, we managed to clear most of the upper deck.

    After sending Trazoi down to check some suspicious noises, which netter us another Blaster Launcher, I decided to check the last room.

    Of course, Tengu insisted he's had nothing to do with this, that it was a very good thing I'd disarmed the navigator quietly beforehand, and there was no way he was attempting to seize control of the base. Times like that, I miss Knight. Oh well, no sense in killing a valuable resource when maiming will do.

    After breaking all the fingers on Tengu's left hand, I looked over the spoils. It seemed we had just got our hands on more Elerium than we'd ever need. Ferrus's suggestion of a "Giant army of Elerium powered walking death machines" was now back on the table.

    As soon as we were back, I went into the labs to ask Cubey about that. I mean, he'd mentioned it before, and we had the resources.

    I found a smoking crater where the weapon range had been, Chumbley looking equally impressed and horrified, some still sizzling bits of Chryssalid flesh, and Cubey writing some notes next to a Blaster Bomb launcher.

    I really should have seen this coming.

    "Please tell me you did something other than blow up the lab in the 3 hours I was away."

    "I'd be lying, though. I did, however, do something earlier this month. It's in the manila folder."

    "Isn't manila used for clean underwear? Or was it porn..."

    "Never cared much for filing. I leave that to Copper."

    I snuck a glance into the folder.



    Hoo mama. So this was the design Cubey had been holding hostage until he got some good explosives. Gotta say, this thing was worth the loss of half the lab. Fort Fri would work on this one immediately.

    If we knew where the aliens were striking from, this would pretty much guarantee us a chance at payback. Sweet, sweet payback.

    Great update as always.



    I was always amused by the fact that, after just a bit of research, the X-Com quickly comes up with a vessel that is vastly superior in every regard to every UFO, including the battleships. While being 50 times smaller.
    Who is the superior, more advanced race here?

    We haven't researched Cydonia Or Bust yet, have we? Gotta find an alien base now...

    Well, humans are special and all that. I learned all I need to know about human-alien relationship from Star Trek after all. Though, maybe I should've brushed my shatner impresionism more before going to the field. Oh well, it's too late now. At least I still can impressionate the doctor now.

    Technically I could, but I don't have a fetish for that, so I prefer to use it only when it serves my world-, or at least X-Com-dominating plans not to do it at all.

    And even default human aircraft weapons are superior to alien ones in everything but ammo! Well, except for Battlecruiser guns.
    Alien ship designs are like alien tactics - you know they were high when making them, you just aren't sure on what.

    I think we have a Commander already. We'll interrogate him... eventually.
