Head inside the Nexus. A good commander is more valuable than a good warrior.
Felix turns his attention to the Nexus. The mammoth, pyramidal structure casted a long shadow in his direction. It concerned him that the Nexus, a psionic anchor that allowed the Protoss to access the psionic matrix, was failing at such a critical time.Were it not for this, it would be a matter of seconds establishing a link between the colony's gateway and our ships. Evacuating this colony would be a trivial task. Losses would be kept to a minimum.
He turned his attention to the Elder and motioned for him to follow.
"When did the Nexus' psi matrix begin to fail?" asks Felix as he makes his way inside the Nexus.
"Three days ago. This was around the time a new wave of colonists arrived. Prior to that, the past few months came and went without any problems.'
"That's conveniently timed for a Zerg attack," remarks Felix.
"You believe the Zerg are responsible?" asks Katau.
"I don't know. The timing of it is suspicious but there's no evidence of Zerg sabotage. And with over a hundred colonists, someone would say something if they spot a Zerg organism," replies Felix.
"Where are you going?"
"We should have heard something from the Executor's fleet. It's been far too silent. I'm going to establish a communication link with the Executor's fleet. Every Nexus has a communications hub. I'm heading there. Hopefully, the signal is strong enough to transmit a message."
Reaching the communication room, Felix notes the lack of personnel in the room. Activating a single psi blade, Felix moves towards the main terminal.
"Where is Amot? He shouldn't have left his post," says Katau looking around. He opens a door and heads inside, the door closing behind him.
"There should always be someone here even in times of crisis. At least these chat logs are intact. The last log was with the Fleet a hours and a half ago. There hasn't been any since. Something doesn't add up." says Felix quietly.
"Gaaah!" screams Katau.
His communicator blinks softly and the voice of Ja'raal comes through.
"Felix, we are in position by the bridge and setting up charges. How are things on your end?"
