There was no time for this madness, no patience for indulgence. Let Tom and his merry band of misguideds rage, they would find no quarter. There would be no giving in to demands, and no accommodation.
Instead the leaders had been given a brief summary of the situation, and they had unanimously agreed to a plan, and an offer. The Nyx was a low value ship, being a prisoner ship, containing no unique abilities or machinery. Its whole value was only in that it was another place for the few remaining humans to live. If they wished to make threats, they would receive them in turn. The tylium mining ship, this was not.
So the pilots got the ‘honor’ of transmitting the counter offer. Three choices, pick one, you have five minutes.
- unconditional surrender
- frak off and jump away from the fleet
- we blow you up, which we will do in precisely 5 minutes if you do not choose options 1 or 2
At first, nothing. 1 minute passed, then 2.
Finally at the 4 minute mark, the dock was opened, the marines let in, and the prisoners had surrendered.
Total +24, pass. No effect. @rho21 you may QT take any card 3 or less. IU grants you 2 engineering cards
