You refuse to let the guard die. Not when you owe him one.
The superior officer is focused on the guard, making him get on his knees for a dishonorable execution. You move as quietly and as quickly as you can, sticking close to the wall.
“You stand accused of betraying–” she says, before you kick the gun out of her hand!
She punches you in the jaw. This officer must’ve actually spent time in combat. You dodge her next punch by crouching down, then deliver a sweeping kick that knocks her to the floor.
The guard – equipped with the officer’s laser pistol – opens fire multiple times. She turns into a pile of ash.
“I told you to take the orange route,” the guard said.
“I go where I want,” you reply. “Where’s the command bay?”
“Follow the red line.”
“You’re welcome, by the way.”
Screw the escape pods. You’re taking the whole ship.
TO BE CONTINUED NEXT WEEK…
REMEMBER: YOU TOOK THE “RED” ROUTE.
