    Sir, if you would just unlock the storeroom door and let me out occasionally, I swear I would make less mistakes like that. Please?

    You should know, what with giving me Heavy Plasma before the staff knew how they worked. And somehow LOADING it. Which, once again, we don't know how to do.

    (Tomorrow's update's gonna be a general state of X-Com bit. No real action.)

    Yes. Still, we're gonna try to catch a grunt first. The leader should reveal more if he can see what we're going to do before we do it.

    Sure, after all there is no expiration date on captured aliens as they're held in "luxurious" accomodations of the Alien Containment. The 10 prisoners/facility limit is not a rule, more of a... vague hint.
    My containment was so full of aliens once, the scientists couldn't open the doors without prisoners flooding out like trash from an overstocked cartoon wardrobe. That wasn't pretty. But it sure was fun!

    You're not dead. Nobody died in the base raid due to save scumming.

    In fact, you're the only redshirt from the first batch still alive.

    Now, that's not true.

    I always allow for them to enter the room to administer beatings! Good for morale.

    As resident tactical officer I have to adamantly advise against this course of action. Beating up the alien with a non-powered stun rod is an unnecessarily risky action I can in no way condone.

    I mean, who knows when and what for we might need that metal stick, and what are we going to do if you break it? Beating the alien over the head with a fellow squad member is far less demanding on the X-Com resources (hardware is precious, redshirts are easy to come buy).

    Default Meet the troops. Don't get too attached.

    Well, after the base invasion, the standard spacecraft shooting was put on hold for a bit. We needed to make sure time didn't get messed up too much.

    The sudden appearance of the skyranger full of troops I'd requisitioned WEEKS AGO provided both a control group and a subject (other than Copper, who'd locked the storeroom and thus was currently unavailable) for venting frustration.









    After a thorough grilling, it seemed the timeline was mostly intact. Sure, now Buddy Holly never died, and for some reason Plato lived for like 700 years, but the important things were still the same. Namely, people were still paying me to kill things and provide tools to let others do the same. After those eight had left (and been shocked by my wall o' Brisco County Jr DVDs, which apparently now are more precious than gold now. Saving those for retirement.) I checked the delivery vehicle for other loot and noticed the ninth man, David Davies. As it turned out, he's union. This seemed to mean he didn't have to do anything. I approved of this. Any man who could avoid work more thoroughly than me, while in theory drawing the same salary, deserved my respect.

    I decided that Lopez could manage the rookies for now and went to check on the R&D boys. Apparently, they were working on Medkits still, a noble endeavor, and vital if X-COM ever needs to position itself as a humanitarian institution. On the other hand, it doesn't directly kill anything. I decided then and there to have them begin interrogating the leader. Despite its (rather pathetic) pleading, I decided on the most extreme technique we had. I tossed it into the storeroom with Copper. I almost pity it.

    The morgue was the next stop. Saying hello to Fri's ghost as I passed, I checked up on the corpse collection. Although keeping every single one wasn't feasible, one of each sort seemed reasonable enough. Of course, tht did lead to keeping X-Com bodies on site, and I forget why I had Copper bring back the civvie corpse. Oh, right. He didn't want to.

    Eldan's cubby was looking a tad odd though. Corpse had some "Unusual" features. Also, it seemed to be moving now. I immediately left the room. They laughed when I got that zombie survival kit. They all laughed, but now who's going to be the one safely locked up with a wide assortment of assault weapons? Me.

    Right. Also Copper. %(*#.

    As I came back into the room with the shotgun I'd got for this exact purpose (well, this and quoting Cpl. Hicks when shooting aliens in the mouth), I saw tentacles leaving the corpse, and retracting into an attractive blonde woman in an X-Com jumpsuit. Obviously, the zombies had figured out hologram technology. This was a very bad thing. Then an oddly familiar voice spoke

    "Hello Commander! Look! I am a perfectly ordinary human, as always! I have recovered from my ordinary human near death experience! The changes in external form are the result of recovery from a bad cold. Us Humans always look different when suffering from a cold1"

    And this is why I hate unique alien infiltration units. They always find a way to come back. Well, next time we're detonating Eldan's corpse.


    Well, today could have gone better. Alien invasion of X-Com bases, freakish alien mutation, history revised so that all copies of my favorite Bruce Campbell western have disappeared, and Copper is still alive, and in fact the most likely of all of the non me, non Lopez inhabitants of base to survival a zombie invasion.

    On the upside, I have an alien leader to kick around. That should relieve some stress.
