I expected there'd be a little bit of a protest, but I guess Tatim isn't in their typical chain of command.

Nuts. If I don't recognize him, he probably doesn't know much.

I'm a little surprised the agents haven't asked already, so I will. "You, uh, give it up! You're surrounded!"

The man throws up his hands.

"Why did you do it?" he asks Julian. "You don't have to do this."

Concordance troopers finds the screamer in his backpack.


where is Julian going next?

I don't give him an answer. The plan was falling apart, I was about to be caught...

These are all just excuses, I'm just a selfish coward.

Well let's check if Tatim is awake. I assume somebody stayed with him or moved him somewhere to recover (if not I definitely check on him). Presumably, the other two around here are also screamers. Let's try going in the other direction when they diverged.

The man asks a couple more times, and one of the concordance people leads him away.

Concordance lady in SWAT Gear: "We had a medical team pick up the colonel."

Julian starts chasing one of the other signals. They're making a better attempt to run, not trying to engage him this time.

Julian notices the farther signals are converging together.

He notices this new area has people who are still out and about.
Trooper Lady: "They've entered a higher-crime area. Lockdown isn't being respected. watch for shooters."

"Other signals are converging away from here; they're probably the Starpus. We should turn around and chase those signals instead."

As they are preceding to the location, Julian hears several fire fights. The eventually make it to the location, and they find the tank of starpus, with no one near it.



Big Digger: "Sunbeam! what's going on? Reef was waving limbs around, but we did not know what she meant."

"Well this has to be bait if I've ever seen it. Could there be a bomb or something nearby? Maybe they hope if they leave the tank we'll leave them alone?"

I communicate silently. "I..." I was really hoping I could avoid having to deal with this...

"I betrayed Reef. I betrayed you... The Concordance gave me an offer I simply could not refuse. They say, they say that you could renegotiate? Like, maybe you could get what you want. Faster maybe, too..."

"I'm sorry..."

Concordance lady in SWAT Gear: "You think they have a bomb? We can send in some sniffers if so."

Concordance lady in SWAT Gear: "Can you keep tracking them if they don't have the tank? They might be right."

Big Digger: "That doesn't tell me what is actually happening! why are we here! Where have you been?"


Pleasant Caller: "This has been very unpleasant"

Wow, I'm just kinda useless sometimes.

"I was sent off to deal with another Speaker that was looking for you. I was caught, so I changed sides. The people I used to work with must have figured I could find you anyway so dumped you here."

"That's good enough. I'm getting sniffers. Is that all nine starpus?" (It is)

Concordance Lady in Swat Gear: "We have the starpus. The Screamers are just animals. We'll have a seeker soon enough. Its arriving... right here. Oh. They were hoping to get off the station on the one ship we'd allow to leave, the one bringing a seeker. Clever."

Hungry Singer: "So where are we?"
