Sir, recommend you utilize main cannon of the Sentinel to destroy local engi forces.
What will that do?

Will destroy The Knight and The Stalker will be too heavily damaged to be combat effective, The Colossus will be completely destroyed.

However, all local engi forces will be pushed back, buying us at least another week in earth time.


Is that all we got?

Negativ-

ALERT. PFV COLOSSUS A.I. ACTIVATED. TARGET PRIORITY: ENGI.


What?

Why?

How?

Multiple life signs detected...Designation...Friendly.

PFV Colossus weapons recharging... Hull repair drones active...

Main battery firing...

Direct Hit on 6 Engi vessels.


You got to be... How did?

Spyglass, I want all secure security drones active on the Colossus, lock it down against borders

Nelson, I want a boarding team prepped and ready to engage threats aboard the Colossus.

SIR!

Security teams, I want all corridors locked down with secure drones, keep the hacked drones at bay.

Spyglass, what's the status of the ground team?

Situation is untenable, colony security drones will be hacked in an estimated 30 minutes.

Teams on Earth?

The situation has deteriorated drastically, but remains salvageable.

Advance battalion of Mechs, automated infantry and human infantry are en route to Raven Team's position, currently, they are in the same situation we last contacted them in.

However, we do not know where a human Conspiracy Theorist is located to allow the operation to proceed.


Okay...

Salvageable...

Our status?

Provided we get reinforcements we will be able to successfully repel the Engi assault.

SIR! We have a reading on 2 cruisers in scanning range.

Names?

The Vindicator and the Vengeance

Where?

We don't know sir, scanning systems too damaged...

Damn...

Send them our ship information, We might get fired on

Negative. All external connections canceled.

Preparing main cannon for engagement.


DAMMIT SPYGLASS! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?!

Saving the Sentinel.

AT WHAT COST?!

NELSON!! OVERRIDE THE PROTOCOLS, WE NEED TO GAIN CONTROL OF OUR SYSTEMS

Firing... 20 seconds to release

Errr... CUT THE POWER!! NOW.

Sir?

JUST DO IT!!

Done...

Oh god...

Reboot the systems...

Get everything back online...

We have to push them back.

Done sir.

Spyglass, what the hell was that?

Apologies sir, emergency protocols initiated, cannon shutting down.

Was that hard?

Negative. However, recommend that we destroy the planet, as it's security forces can cause too much of an issue to us.

Can we get out forces out?

Negative.

...

Then... Don't, ready all weapons and repel the boarders, fire on everything.

We contact High Command...

And we get out.

Of course sir.

And send those ships our information, we need all the help we can get

Of course admiral

PLAYBACK? Y/N >y
BEGIN PLAYBACK-


...ugh, oof-

Hey. Anyone out there that can receive this message, I am asking for help. Be advised-*cough* that the Engi are not as they appear to be. If you are already aware of this, then you already know of their potential. But there's still more.

I've done... research. I'm a scientist- well, WAS a scientist. Dr. Stolos. That was before... *cough* -before I looked too far. But I couldn't just stop... I had to look further. And it only got worse.

The Engi are the fragments of an ancient, highly advanced civilization, perhaps the first species ever to become starbound. They traded evolution for augments, and in turn became an entirely artificial, super-technologic race. This can be seen in the aspects of both the Engi, and the long-dormant Lanius.

The Lanius- *cough* ...as a collective species, must not fall into the hands of the Engi. Should that happen, I can only say that it will be nigh-impossible to destroy them first.

Warning. Life Support at... fifteen percent capability. Thirteen percent.

I implore you, I need your help. I'm somewhere in Mantis territory, now devastated by the efforts of insurgent Engi. What I can reveal of my plan involves using the Mantis and Lanius in tandem; the radical oxygen difference between them will be... *cough cough* ...difficult, but not impossible to solve. Perhaps the use of genetic modifi-

Seven percent.

We'll also... *gasp* need the help of the Zoltan. Their contributions with the Engi prior can surely... *cough* -be utilized in some way to-

Four percent.

Gah... I'm activating the distress beacon now, and... diverting all power to stasis support. Find me, please... despite how tempting it is otherwise, I have to stay alive...

One percent. Reconnecting power to cryostasis chambe-

Aboard the Vengance...

"Sir, particle cannon is charged. Do we fire?"

I crack my knuckles.
"Well, let's test this thing out, shall we?"

xcom_plasma_sniper_fire.mp3

"Mass effect on target!"
"Enemy battleship heavy damage taken, four hull breaches measured!"
"Enemy light cruiser down!"
"Four enemy interceptors down!"
"Their second row took heavy damage!"

"The lab coats did well, as I see... Whatever happens, don't let this particle cannon be destroyed. Stay in the back among the battleships and small flagships. Teleporters have trouble locking on to one ship among many, especially in the midst of such large ships."

"From the logs of PFV Sentinel, it looks as if the Engi can hack AI. Turn off all unnecessary AI programs and charge all weapons. We need to end this war fast."

(Just a demo on the particle cannon damage)

The Vengance is playable, but not on the correct storyline. (You still fight the Rebel Flagship) The Artillery Beam takes 70 sec to charge, 4 damage per room. GUI is a bit glitchy. Have not play tested yet.
Sorry for the lack of progress on the mod, real life's getting in the way

Download (replaces Stealth C):http://www.mediafire.com/download/3ixddc99dvjxz4c/VenganceStealth.ftl

Edit: Consider it a test run against the second most powerful ship ever know, the Rebel Flagship.

*Transmissions received...

*Opening...

Sir, Receiving transmission from High Command, standby.

Of course it is. Go ahead General.

Admiral. The twelfth, ninth and fourteenth battlegroups have cut a swath to the homeworlds. Retreat now while you still have a fleet over.

Of course sir.

Get the ground teams on board, and power up the drives, we have to get out of here.

What of Raven team?

They're on their own.

Nelson what are you doing?

*RETRIEVING SECOND FRAGMENT...

*DONE

NELSON!! YOU JUST KILLED POWER TO THE WHOLE SHIP!! WHAT THE *Gunshot*

ECRT Commander: DROP YOU'RE WEAPON

NOW!!

ECRT Soldier: TWO MEN DOWN, GET TO COVER

Nelson is working with the

ECRT Soldier: I'VE BEEN HIT!!

HE HAS TO HAVE ARMOR PIERCING ROUNDS, THERE IS NO WAY HE COULD PENETRATE OU-

*Gunshot*

Crew member Nelson is working with the enemy, He is heavily armed and a danger to all units regardless of armor or rank, terminate with extreme prejudic-

*Gunshot*

IT DIDN'T HAVE TO END LIKE THIS!!

WHY COULDN'T YOU JUST GIVE UP?!

It would've made this easier


DROP IT NELSON!!

You don't understand

I do understand.

Wrong. More then wrong...

They killed my wife... They killed my sister...

They would've killed David...

My son...

I HAD TO DO THIS!!


Whats it worth? HUH?!

No...

They were bluffing.

They didn't kill your wife.

They didn't kill your sister.

They couldn't have killed David.

No...

Nononononononononono...


Drop it Nelson...

Now.

You're lying...

ECRT Commander: DROP IT NELSON.

I killed you...

Michael Graves...

I killed you...


You can't kill an ECRT.

NOW DROP THE WEAPON!!


*thud*

*Gunshot*

*Gunshot*

You didn't have to do that.

He's a threat to us all, not anymore.

Fine... Have it your way...

Get the ship online, we can't be defenseless like this...

Got it.

Sir, the ship was knocked offline. Apologies, I could not lock out the intrusion placed by Corporal Nelson before he was able to shut down the ship with the push of a button.

Right, that happened.

Get the troops on board, we have to leave.

Sir, all ships safe for the Sentinel are prepped and ready to jump into a nearby sector.

Sentinel will be ready in two minutes however estimates show that the ship will be destroyed before then.


Crap...
Advise?
Order the ninth battlegroup to assist.

That's a tad overkill to ensure we can jump out of this system.

Estimates show that the Engi will not be able to enter the sector before the ninth can reinforce.
The only other method is to use the Colossus as a shield for oncoming fire.


*Sigh*

We go with that.

Send the orders.

PFV Colossus, your new objective is to shield the Sentinel against assault

Admiral, Azure Squadron, Cobalt Squadron, Silver Squadron, Gold Squadron, Crimson Squadron, and Black Squadron are aboard the vessel.

Along with the 8th Assault Brigade and the 9th Colonial Brigade.
