I've selected a land-mass about the size of Europe. It's in what looks like a temperate zone.We'll land on the coast, and I'll bury the ship under the sand. That should obscure us from any scan short of ground-penetrating short-range stuff.
Is there any way to prevent that from happening?
Sure. You'll be wandering around on the beach playing at Lewis and Clark...
When your comm suddenly goes dead, I'll know there are hostiles about, and I'll just pop up and shoot them before they can scan for me.
Ah. The old "I'll use my commanding officer as bait" plan. I hate it already.
