As the changeling and Protoss fought, Dr. Abe went over to one of the computers, unnoticed by both of them. This facility is lost. If I am going to die today, then I must make sure that our work here gets out to the Dominion. Typing quickly, he inserted a disk to download all of the data in the facility. Then, a wipe out of the network would be initiated after the data downloaded. He turned off the power to the monitor.
He moved over to the radio control. "Fire teams, listen carefully as this may be your last orders. This facility is lost. The changeling came here before you and everything went south from there. They are likely to breach the barricades. We won't last much longer. Your final objective is to retrieve a disk in the command room located in the master controls. Get that and get out of here. Head for the starport and get a ride out of here. If fortune smiles on us, you may not be the only ones there..."
A bright light illuminated the room. The Protoss was gone. Dr. Abe stepped away from the radios and turned just in time to see something jump up through the vents. There were screams and gunfire outside.
So it is over now? He held up his gun and aimed once more at the left forearm. It was just him and the changeling now. It did not give any indication of acknowledging his presence. 4 more shots...do I shoot?" He clutch his gun tighter. Sweat trickled down his cheeks. "Let it be the left forearm." BANG BANG BANG BANG.
A guard took up the turret and rained fire upon the chimera leader. Several guards were already injured in the initial ambush. One of them was cleaved in half as the leader swung his axe. Two men went to the door leading to Command.
Look at the map on page 4. There are two guards per barricade. The reception desk has 4 guards. All the assault rifles are in the back. The chimera leader is in the area in front of the turret. All the others are advancing foward.
The liquid was on top of her, slightly smaller than her but she was on her fours trying to avoid being engulfed in it. Despite it's amorphous and liquid quality, it was surprisingly heavy. She shut her mouth tightly and with great force, looked around for something, anything to get the thing off her. The door opened revealing two guards. "What in the world? Oh my god, that thing is here! Move her out and lock that door!"
They each grabbed a hold of her arm and dragged her out. Gunfire was all over the place. The door closed ominously behind her and the other guard put in the lockdown code for the door. They went behind the reception desk
"It's not getting off her! What do we do?" "Gimme your taser! If we shoot it, we may kill her. At least with this, she may live. A painful jolt went through Martha's body. "Yes, yes! Increase the voltage! That thing is loosening its grip!" Another painful jolt ran through her. "Almost there, one more, put it on max!" The liquid trembled and released its grip and laid still. Martha panted and crawled out of the liquid. No doubt that "tail" will attack them again. There were some left in her clothing but she ignored them for now. Survival was more important.
She saw a chaotic scene. She breathed heavily there was no time for respite. She drew her pistol. "Ma'am, you should rest for the time being!" yelled the guard. "Times like this, you need fight!" she yelled back. The big brutish chimera was frightening resilient and quick and advanced on the turret She drew her pistol, aimed for the foot and opened fire.
11/15 men are alive, 2 deaths from the chimera, 2 from the changeling ===========================================================
The defiler was completely still in the darkness. Sounds were coming and they sounded familiar. Yet its scent was strangely protoss. It passed him. An imposter...it does not carry the smell of the changeling. So it is near, very near.
