Acino: "In position"
Me: "Board that Corvette"
Marines: "On the way"
Something is not right. Only four of eight Marines are on the job, cutting hull.
Me: "Acino, be a Pirate!"
Acino: "Wut?" <no action>
Me: "Launch all marines!"
Acino: "Wait till I get into range"
Finally the second team launches ... in suits.
Team 1: "Hacking CPU"
Team 2: "Contact, cutting hull"
Team 1: "Ship is ours"
Team 2: "Almost through"
Me: "Team 1. Teleport to Mothership. Go. Go. Go."
Team 2 gets the hull open ... and decides to walk back to Acino hush hush.
Both marine teams get hauled off the sector.
The M6 gets a skeleton gerbil crew and jumps to client.
Only two things remain:
- Me, wondering how I forgot to resupply the Acino with Pods. Again.
- That eerie creaking tone of stressed hull keeps playing on and on. The boarding is over, the cut ship has left the sector, but the sounds just linger there.
On the bright side:
* No losses
* Team 2 did not start a fight inside my ship
