Putting their heads together they decide they have to move fast or risk being found out during a month since their two new mercenary members speak no German and are extremely nervous about causing incidents..... To ACTION, they quickly overpower the 2 off duty guards and then ask the guard at the door to enter (Peril check-Passed) He enters, but warily, having heard some scuffling about. Jorge attempts to disarm and subdue him (Peril check - FAILED!) and the guard gets of a burst of shots into the wall and is then pummeled down. The Jig is UP! Guards from around the base move in on the Hut!
Shooting starts again as the Cyborg Alien who has been released from his Stasis fires his beam weapon and dissolves the GEE Agent, and then the last guard in the field as the closest targets!
The Team tries the old plan of "Run like Hell for the Ship!"
"Jorge! that panel that was smoking on the flight here....(that peril fail at the beginning....) Its sparking and seems to be failing!"
"Damn, can we make it back?"
"Ja, but Im not sure about the landing choices, the navigation system seems to be failing, we may have to settle for anywhere we can land!"
The ship enters the atmosphere, several panels explode and the ship skews about and comes in at a shallow angle, skimming over the pacific ocean! PLLLuuuusssshhhh, the ship is down and taking on water.... (extreme peril checks all around-passed) the ramp drops and they rush off the sinking craft. Jorge is beside himself that they have to swim for it and cant take anything more than a pistol with them, having to abandon all the artifacts, and heavy weapons!!!
Rescued by a passing tramp freighter they make their way back to the west coast US and report in.
