ENNESBY: Sir, our delays in storming Imo's central bay have provided you with an advantage.
All the enemy combatants are stationed in that room. You now have a target rich environment.
You're outnumbered ten-to-one, but they have improvised weapons while you're in full kit and have all their positions.
TAGON: What about the hostage?
ENNESBY: Danita is alive, and strapped to the front of a mining rig.
TAGON: Got it. Schlock, up the middle. Doc and Tailor, go right. I'll go left. Pi, I need you to sharp-shoot the driver of the mining rig without hitting the hostage.
Ennesby will pinpoint targets and paint them on your HUDs.
TAILOR: Sir, you and Pi both have pauldron cannons with S.I. drivers. Might I suggest you set them for full autonomy?
TAGON: I thought that was how I had them set.
TAILOR: Not if they're still attached to your shoulders.
NARRATOR: Ten seconds later, in Station Imo's central engineering bay...
TAILOR: See? Paul-drones!
TAGON: Who is paul?
SCHLOCK: I need shoulders.
