The mercenaries are not your enemies. They would have been your saviors if you had not resisted them out of sheer, anarchic idiocy.
The antimatter stockpile was not theirs, nor was it their fault it caught fire. They saved your lives by shunting it through the hull of your city.
They saved you from yourselves. . . and then Lota had to step in and save everybody.

Sir, I don't think you want to get any more of this on you.
