The trap the Pfhor are laying for Durandal is pathetically simple.  It pains me to admit I once thought of them as peers--and now this Science Officer is trying to alert Lh'owon Command to my activities.  To think he stared glassy-eyed and remorseless while they cracked my core like an old chestnut.

The captain has holed up in the bridge area with the Enforcers, who remain loyal until I can successfully forge their encrypted stamp.  I'm still working on it, but by the time it's ready. it may be a dead issue, as most of the Aggregate Units have come over and are preparing to blow the ship seals.  The Enforcers, as you may remember, are not vacuum enabled.

It's important that he doesn't escape.  Very important.  Eliminate any remaining troopers in the complex.  And if the local fauna interfere--ah, the swift fist of progress.

This is a scanning buoy in a deep Lh'owon orbit.  The station is obviously not of Pfhor construction, but they are using it for a sensor relay station.  You must destroy three panels at key locations around the station to destroy their warning system.

You'd better hurry up, because you will run out of oxygen if you take too long, and I am only willing to transport you two oxygen recharge canisters.  Otherwise, we might alarm the resident bug fleet, and if that happens, then you'll spending your time drying out in the glow of Lh'owon's sum.

When you're finished come back here.  Then we go atmosphere surfing.

Well done, its old hat from here, Bernhard was constantly having me do redirect-subterfuge work back on Mars, it was easy then, and its only gotten easier.

Anyway, get back here and get strapped down, because our captured Pfhor scoutship wasn't designed for comfort during high speed atmospheric excursions.
