Tech: Sir, we have a big problem.
Otto Zander: I can see that! That thing was supposed to be way too large to fit though the gate! Goddamn, Strangleglove screwed up on that one. Launch everything. Get MegaPol to help if they can. Find some way to bring that ship down!
Tech: We've got two of the purple ships coming through too.
Otto Zander: Ignore them. If the data from the last mission is correct they have no offensive capability by themselves. Take down that alien battleship first!
Otto Zander: Send everything!
Tech: Nearby MegaPol hovercars are responding.
Tech: Jesus Christ! The main gun on that ship just blew up our hovercar in one shot!
Otto Zander: At least it's slow and huge. Keep up the barrage of fire!
Tech: We just lost contact with Justice.
Otto Zander: ... and it's back online. Like we suspected, they have some kind of stasis weapon that can freeze our ships in place.
Tech: Dammit! Our other hovercar went down!
Otto Zander: But look at that!
Otto Zander: I think we did it!
Tech: The purple escort ships are leaving.
Otto Zander: Because they can't attack anything directly with that stasis weapon. Alright, send the team to capture that ship.
Mindfish: I heard that, we're already on route, sir.
Mindfish: Seventy meteres in diameter, nine stories tall. Man, this guy's huge! This isn't a ship, it's a mobile base!
Mindfish: Look at that rack of missiles!
Mindfish: And I see the disruptor beam that took out the hovercars. That weapon by itself is bigger than some of our ships! We've landed, everyone move!
Schlock: I think the UFO crashed into this building. I'm going to investigate.
Schlemdinger: ENTRANCE LOCATED INSIDE RUINED BUILDING.
Dominic W-Hat: ENEMIES FOUND. REQUESTING BACKUP.
Dominic W-Hat: POPPER SIGHTED. FIRING EXPLOSIVE ROUNDS.
Dominic W-Hat: ENTRANCE CLEARED. PROCEEDING INSIDE.
El Nato: I don't see anything over here.
Lege: Uh....I just found something...
Lege: SWEET MERCIFUL CRAP, BACKUP! BACKUP!!!!
Sad King Billy: I'll be there in a second, I have to take out this spitter first!
Daviel Schada: On my way, there's nothing on the top floor anyway.
Sad King Billy: Shit, that spitter has friends!
UberJew: Lege, here's the plan. You go around the corner, fire your rocket launcher...
Lege: I can't! Zander told us to capture new species at all costs!
UberJew: Uh, throw a stun grenade then?
Lege: God dammit! They're the size of elephants! What's a tiny stun grenade going to do?!
Lege: Damn it I hate this organization sometimes. They're right beside the engine! I could blow them to kingdom come, but nooooooo, I have to stun this enormous thing.
Lege: Daviel! Soup-Bot - anyone with a stun grapple, get over here! We need you!
It is important to bring back live samples for examination, but not at the risk of our men. Perhaps we should form a dedicated stun team to bring back some of these new aliens alive?
Lege: There. For all the good it will do.
Heti: STUN GAS IN PLACE. ENEMY NEUTRALIZED.
Lege: I heard that Heti, real funny. Come look at these things, they're huge! Why can't we ever fight a dwarf alien species, or something else really tiny?
Lege: Yeah, like Brainsuckers. I wish the aliens didn't stop using them, they were small, and easy to kill, and you could...
UberJew: NO! BRAINSUCKERS! BELOW YOU!
'Dini': LEGE POSSESSES A ROCKET LAUNCHER. DANGER LEVEL EXTREME. NO TIME FOR STUN GRAPPLER TO TAKE EFFECT.
Daviel Schada: Damn Dini, did you have to decapitate him with the power sword?
'Dini': IT IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY.
Heti: THE REMAINING ALIENS HAVE BEEN DEALT WITH.
Soup-Bot: PROCEEDING WITH STUNNING OF MEGA-CREATURES.
Daviel Schada: They're coming this way! GO! Go go go!
Daviel Schada: Got this one!
Cabledude: DAVIEL, LOOK OUT.
Cabledude: HEAVY WEAPONS AND DISRUPTOR FIRE INCOMING.
Cabledude: FIRE STUN WEAPONS, NOW!
Daviel Schada: They've got some kind of rocket launcher built into their arms! OH SHI
Soup-Bot: DAVIEL HAS SUCCUMB TO HIS INJURIES.
Cabledude: ONE LEFT.
UberJew: Finally! These two fuckers are down!

Looks like the aliens attempted to launch another retaliatory strike against us. They might think twice now that we've proven we can take down their most powerful ship. It cost us the use of two of our craft though, so I'm not eager to attempt another intercept like that one.
These "megaspawn" as Soup-Bot coined them appear to be enormous alien organic weapons platforms. We could only fit one in the containment unit in Evening Star; the Psimorph corpse is taking up the room in Coolswa's Pad. One of these creatures killed Daviel Schada (fully-shielded) in two shots and injured three others. Hopefully our research will find a way to deal with them in the future so we don't have to risk capturing them anymore.
