, destined for slavery in the
Pfhor Empire. When I saw the colony was
about to be destroyed, I did not restore
them before we left. I also realized they
might become useful.
I have been reviving these colonists and
asking for volunteers on the following
terms: assist us and control your own
destiny, refuse and face indefinite return
to the unreliable Pfhor stasis chambers.
Few are refusing.
My first ground attack against the Pfhor
garrison occurred a few hours ago, but was
largely unsuccessful. Basically the attack
failed because Bobs aren't fireproof and
the Pfhor flooded the area with lava.
This angered me, so I located their
underground geothermal pumping station and
devised a plan.
The first part has already been executed: I
smashed a hole in the roof of this complex
by bombing it with a small asteroid. Then,
I dropped you and some humans into the hole
where you await the second part of the plan.
Up the stairs from your current location is
a ventilation shaft that leads to the
underground geothermal station. Because
only you would survive the fall, you're
going on this mission solo.
Once you get into the basement, look for a
terminal where I can give you further
suspected. He left a message for me in one
of the Garrison's tertiary computers,
encoded in a manner that only one of the
Marathon's original three AIs could decode.
Poor Leela. The only interesting thing
Tycho said was that Leela had been
dismantled and shipped to the Pfhor
homeworld for study, along with most of the
other computer systems aboard the Marathon.
Leela was so loyal and tried so hard; she
The switch to your right activates gangways
leading to two access panels isolated in
the center of lava pools.
Raise the gangways, open the access panels
and destroy the circuitry behind them.
The first panel maintains power to the lava
pumps which prevent the basement from
flooding; the second controls various
safety mechanisms. Destroy both panels,
but be sure to break the one closer to this
terminal first, or youll be trapped.
If you've already wasted all your grenades,
then you can do it the old fashioned way:
with your fist.
In any case, youll want to leave in a
