[ EXCERPTED FROM PRIVATE MESSAGE, LOCALLY ENCRYPTED, ADDRESSED TO MINISTER HARDLY HOPING OF THE CHOSEN OF THE SACRAL HOLLOW ]
Given the data we’ve got? I think it’s an impractical strategy. I think we’re better off hitting them before they move pieces than returning what they’ve already taken. Which, yeah, I know we leave a lot behind that way, but given the current resources our teams have got, it feels like bandaging the arm while the guts bleed out—
That’s how that works, right? The… the guts bleed more than the arm does. Or, it’s more dangerous when the guts bleed than when the arm does. I… look, you know my comprehension of human anatomy is flawed at best. I think the metaphor still makes sense. If it doesn’t, uh, just pretend I used one that does make sense. It’s like fixing the paint job while the engine leaks oil. Either way, we’re hemorrhaging.
This week, on Tango Sector: Having made their way into the classified Blackford & Desai research facility thanks to a convenient distraction, the crew of Pelagian runs into an old friend and finds themselves not entirely at cross purposes. Flux does some quick thinking and faster talking. Melas speeds things along. Liam indulges his paranoid instincts. Cash receives a strange message. Kala’ax makes a friend.
