I burn with the light of the Khala. Should I have a doctor take a look at that?
Protoss doctors will probably tell you its supposed to happen. I feel sorry for the creatures that have to rely on some external influence to exercise a psionic link like that which connects me with the Swarm. I always wondered what happens if one of the protoss were allergic to the khala. Maybe that's where the Dark Templar come from?
Either separate yourself from the Khala, or have an agent from the swarm give you my eyes. I'm certain that I can do more about it than your the protoss geezers you work for.
As you know, the dominion provides all us Marines with stim-packs to increase our proficiency in combat. Well, recently the scientists aboard the cruiser I am on have experimented with several zerg dna strains to add to the stims, and have developed a more intense and addictive stim-pack- however their tests have shown that they lead to severe cases of withdraw; this coupled with the fact that they are not cheap to produce lead to them being outlawed for use
Well, a few of my close friends have recently stumbled upon a forgotten stock of these advanced stim-packs and begun to replace their standard issue ones with the illegal narcotics. Even worse they are pressuring me into joining them and using these dangerous substances! On the one hand, these will provide me with a better ability to fire my gauss rifle into your swarms of zerglings, and potentially help me grow closer to my friends, but on the other hand I do fear the damage this could lead to my body and the trouble I can get in if my commander finds out.
I also fear that if I do not use these, my friends will shun me, make me the butt of their pranks, and even worse- they might abandon me at the mouth of an ultralisk. I don't know if I should give in and use the drugs or if I should stick with the navy issues.
What advice could you give me?
2,541st Marine division.
It amuses me that terrans make one kind of drug a standard issue and the bans another. The Swarm doesn't actually need a drug to get all hopped up, as my presence in them tends to have the same effect. If you really want to get away from stims altogether but still get the same experience, you might want to consider infestation.
As for your situation, I'm sure this is a common thing among the marines. I might point out that any chemical substance with a zerg strain in it will probably attract any creatures I have nearby. Its a pity that it isn't enough to infest these guys, but if you lay low for a while they'll probably end up ruining a major battle or something because of their poor decisions. And then after they're gone, you can tell your commander about your heroic willpower--and be sure to exaggerate the methods with which they tried to seduce you.. Then you'll get to deliver lectures about the evils of the banned drugs and all that, probably get a few notches added to your rank, and probably be given more stims to celebrate.
My offer still stands though. Infestation will offer you an experience unlike any other!
See you soon,
The first 3 diaries were awesome, but the rest were just reapeats. This is a breath of fresh air.
Ironically enough, I'm pretty sure "Ask Kerrigan" got started before the diary series. The nice thing about this is that it only takes a creative question to add new material, whereas the diaries need a completely new topic for anything fresh.
